Charlie Nash is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with many other characters who appear in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise on April 13, 2015. In the MvC2 style, Charlie is voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa (who also voiced Hayato and Dante (in the MvC3 style), while Kōsuke Toriumi (Japanese) and Mike McFarland (English) provide the role for him, using voice clips recycled from Street Fighter V.
Charlie is first mentioned by name in the Street Fighter II storyline (first released in 1991), where he is the deceased war buddy of Guile, one of the playable characters in the game. Prior to the events of the game, Charlie was killed by M. Bison, although the exact circumstances are not clear (in the English localization of the game, it is said that he was taken captive during a mission and later died during the escape attempt). In the game, Guile enters the World Warrior tournament with the purpose of avenging his fallen friend's death. In Super Street Fighter II Turbo, a scene is shown of Guile visiting Charlie's grave.
Charlie would later be made into a playable character in Street Fighter Alpha, a prequel set before the Street Fighter II games. In the Alpha storyline, Charlie was the previous U.S. Martial Arts champion for two years (a record succeeded by Ken) and was also the one who taught Guile some of his fighting techniques (explaining their similar fighting styles). In the game, Charlie is given the duty to track down Bison and uncover corruption within the American military. In his ending, Charlie defeats Bison, but only to be struck from behind by him shortly afterwards.
Despite Charlie's death in the first Alpha game, he would return as a playable character in the two succeeding Street Fighter Alpha games. Street Fighter Alpha 2 features a different depiction of his death during his ending - after defeating Bison, he is shot from the back by his intended backup helicopter and falls from the waterfall. In Street Fighter Alpha 3, he has an ending where he actually survives battle and manages to destroy Shadaloo's secret base. In the console ports of Alpha 3, Guile is added to the playable roster as well. In Guile's storyline, he is ordered by his superiors to track Charlie, who has supposedly gone AWOL. In reality, Charlie was undercover to investigate Shadaloo and its connection to the military, whereas Guile was sent to put a stop to him without knowing it. After realizing, Guile defeats Bison and teams up with Charlie to destroy Bison's Psycho Drive. Guile escapes, while Charlie stays behind to hold off Bison and is presumed dead after the explosion.
Street Fighter V confirms his Street Fighter Alpha 2 ending is canon. He is resurrected by Kolin (Gill's secretary, under guise of Helen) by using a body material from a prototype Twelve android known as Eleven, turning him into a puppet of Illuminati (Street Fighter III's main antagonist led by Gill). In the final battle against Shadaloo, Charlie sacrifice his life absorbing M. Bison's power as far as he can, so that Ryu can finish off M. Bison for good with his mastered Hado.
In the Marvel vs. timeline, after aiding the heroes in defeating Apocalypse, Charlie was captured by Bison who did terrible experiments on him, his fate would be left unknown until Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, where it would be shown that Bison turned him into a cyborg called Shadow, and inserted some of his Psycho Power on him. Some point between Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Bison got Apocalypse's technology and planned to enhance Charlie even more, doing things like completely turning his skin into metal and inserting guns in his fingers. However, Charlie managed to break free of Bison's brainwashing and later was among the helpers in the battle against Onslaught, later, when Bison cornered Chun-Li and was transforming her into Shadow Lady, Shadow battled Bison and opened Chun Li's chance to escape, however, she would later turn into Shadow Lady by Bison, but she would not be mind controlled and escaped with her cyborg powers. Shadow and Shadow Lady would later save Jin's life by turning him into a cyborg. By unknown means, Shadow, Shadow Lady and Jin would revert back to normal form, and Charlie aided in the battle versus Abyss, and would return to his own universe.
