Who are the known characters in the Skullgirls universe?

HamFistHamFist Joined: Posts: 182
Can we/anyone compile a list of all the characters known or suspected to be in the Skullgirls universe? I'm talking about both curently playable, upcoming and planned AND NPC. Any info about the characters not on the SG site would also be helpful.

Any info on the world and locations would be cool too, aside from what's on the official site.

    Here is the expected cast for the game.
    First row: Filia, Squigly, Cerebella, Ms. Fortune
    Second row: Umbrella, Parasoul, Painwheel, Peacock
    Third row: Double, Valentine, Marie (The Skullgirl)

    Those original 8 characters are as shown before the game even had a publisher, I think. The others are likely 3 boss characters:

    Valentine (ninja nurse, images of her still show up)
    Double (vile lump of monster flesh, not much is known)
    Marie (skeleton maid, the current Skullgirl and possibly unplayable final boss)

    In more recent months several other important characters have floated to the surface as proposed new playable characters. They include:
    Panzerfaust (giant dude with a tank fist, one of Parasoul's soldiers)
    Le Duc (cyborg guy, as seen as a background character in recent footage)
    Corckscrew (also seen as a background character in recent footage)
    Venus (scantily clad female, host to 3 grotesque parasites)
    D. Violet (some sort of succubus or somthing)
    "The Triplets" (not much is known, a play on see no evil/hear no evil/speak no evil)
    Black Dahlia (mafia figure, chopped up Ms. Fortune and killed her gang)

    Check out the giantbomb picture archives and the Skullgirls media thread for more details on them!

    ...Marie (skeleton maid, the current Skullgirl and possibly unplayable final boss)...

    I hate it when characters don't become playable :(. I really hope they make her playable.

    people speculate the umbrella will be something along the lines of May from GG. as for annie? no clue but she very likely wont be in the release, but possibly dlc later. (well she is in the release as images in the background...)

    i really doubt that they will make non playable characters. with the amount of work they have to put into each character i dont think they would see it as worth the effort to do it all for a non playable one.

    oh yea theres also andy anvil and tony ten tons (or is it tommy?) peacocks "imaginary" friends and can we count Lennie and George too?
    i cant find it now, but at one time i did see a picture with the entire circus troupe that cerebella is from.
    ther nameless characters are:
    the pink haired girl seen next to le duc in the ASG labs stage
    shark scientist

    Pretty sure Ravid or Mike said that no one will be unplayable because why would they work that hard on someone not to be playable?

    Wow, good work so far everyone. Especially putting names to pictures.

    Can anyone provide screengrabs of the individual characters that are in the stage backgrounds?

    Also, if Ravid or Mike say boss characters will be playable, and assuming there is a boss character (there, will be right?), does that mean we just have to unlock the boss to have a roster of 9 at launch?

    Personally, I'm really hoping we get to play Valentine, Venus, Big Band and Panzerfaust before the Summer. Also super curious about Black Dahlia and the Triplets.

    They never explicitly stated "8" as far as I'm aware, they always said "More than X".

    History
    -Valentine is a ninja nurse. I saw someone say she was involved with the creation of Painwheel.
    -Venus uhh dunno but looks like her body contains some type of time-space bending properties and some rooster looking beast

    Actually Mike did confirm 8:
    http://iplaywinner.com/news/2011/8/19/skullgirls-qa-confirms-eight-character-roster-at-launch.html

    And I mean, there's only 8 slots on the site. I'm just hoping for a playable boss as a surprise 9th character. It'll be a bummer if there's no boss at all!

    From the article:
    MZ: Well… you can find lots of old stuff if you look for it, but we can’t officially announce anything until the character is done. As Alex said, we’re announcing them as we make them, pretty much, so I’m afraid the full roster won’t be announced until the game’s nearly completed. However, at long last, I will say that we’re looking at around 8 characters at launch.

    if i had to hazard a guess id bet they will handle the game like the later SF2 games did. all characters were selectable and the 'boss' just changed on who you picked. (well in sf2 it was bison unless you chose bison) but im pretty sure mike also said somewhere that he dislikes unlockables.

    another character Vitale Medici, the head of the Medici family (mafia) and Cerebella's foster father. i dont think there have ever been pictures of him.

    Since Skullgirls is all about bringing about unique fighting styles to the table, it makes me wonder how Annie and the triplets would play out if they are ever included as DLC. They could both feasibly have a ms. fortune-esque fighting mechanic, "shadow puppet" or w/e its called. So it begs the question: How will they vary the characters? It is really exciting, in my opinion.

    Annie has her rabbit doll, which seems to be a core part of her character, judging from her sole pieces of artwork available. We have yet to know whether it is "alive" or can be controlled.

    See/Speak/Hear No Evil - Triplets are three characters, which certainly possess the possibility to be controlled as three separate entities. (btw are they boys or girls? hmm)

    It'll be interesting to see what choices the skullgirls team make to bring new and fun, yet innovative, fighting styles to these characters (if they even do).

    I have no qualms when characters have similar play styles, as long there is an element that varies one character from another.
    Example: Why use a watered down Magneto, when you can just choose Magneto (in reference to Ironman, mvc3 :P)

    Just some thoughts :)

    Weeeell, this is first impression but it's hard to imagine how you can implement such s scheme...

    One character attacking per button would be simply an aesthetic difference though, there would have to be some unique underlying mechanic to make it a truly different kind of playstyle and not just a graphical difference. Perhaps something simple such as chains only being possible by attacking with one triplet at a time (that is, no button push can gatling into itself, LP/LK is Triplet A, which can only combo into MP/MK Triplet B, or HP/HK Triplet C and so on). I don't know how one could actually make this interesting to play, but I'm sure they'll find a way.

    When you think about it, fighting game characters are just hitboxes with different values on their attacks and a sprite/model place on top. They can look like anything you can imagine, this lends alot of potential creativity to fighting game characters which is why I'm constantly disappointed by a sea of bland humanoids and shotoclones we see (Arakune was a breath of fresh air in this case). This is definitely something Skullgirls has in it's favor and the art style lends itself to this. I'm eagerly anticipating what Double is capable of, hopefully she isn't just Mokujin/Seth or something and has her own moveset, or perhaps she's just a training dummy/boss/gauntlet type character?

    Whoa, ramble mode: off. :blah:

    This would be very interesting, imo. 1 triplet leading into another triplet for combo extension. Perhaps making so that each triplet has their own unique ranges, and forcing the player to use a particular triplet, depending on distance from player. You are right though, will take a hell of alot of work to get right.

    the no evil kids would almost be perfect for a stance character, one fights while the other two support/follow and you can change which one is on point to get different properties and what not.

    There was talk that one in center is leader. Even if this isn't true, the fact of them having non-symmetrical formation casting a shadow on free-to-switch theory.

    And I personally will add some freakin' transformer for stance character. 3-in-1 can be used some other way.

    I'm getting a Touhou vibe from her (maid, gray hair, etc.).

    What's the name of the girl with the lavender hair next to LeDuc in the Lab stage? I remember reading her name, googling it, then only finding two links (one was the SRK general discussion where I read it on, the other was Dustloop's forum).

    In one of the Giantbomb pictures, Parasoul and Umbrella have a bodyguard that I think looks different from the regular soldiers.

    Any members from the Medici Mafia besides Dahlia? There's Vitale Medici in Cerebella's profile, who I assume to be the leader.
