The stage is set at a clifftop above the clouds, overlooking several other mountains at the distance. The only element of note is a large, triangular-shaped rock standing at the right side of the stage. The location starts with a clear sky at day, and as the round passes the stage transitions from day to sunset, and finally to night with lightning strikes.
- This is the only stage in Marvel vs. Capcom which appears to be an original creation, being apparently not based or inspired by a Marvel or Capcom location.
- The Cliff of Desolation appears in the Spider-Verse comic book event as the location where the Vs. series incarnation of Spider-Man faces and is killed by Morlun.
