    I'm starting to upload artwork pics of the story mode via some screen capturing, so if ya'll got a request, ask away. This Thread is for spoiling after all.

    Would you be able to grab me a couple of Minette?

    There's one at the end of Ms.Fortune's story where it shows her on the right of the screen with a couple of the other kidnapped girls.
    Also, one where you can see the scales and the undersides of her arms. I know I spotted one of those but can't recall exactly where.
    Finally, one that shows her feet if there is one! :D

    I shall be in your debt! :D

    RE: Cerebella, my assumption was she squished Fortune, kinda like turning coal into a diamond. Then wished for Vitale to love her.

    The implication being she loves him both as a man and a father. And she regretted forcing him to love her.

    Sorry boys, Cerebella already has a Waifu!

    Wish she was sitting on my lap! Vitale knows how to pick'em.

    Sadness, even Vice Versa is sad.

    Could be cause she made a wish to the Skull Heart to obtain the Life Gem at the cost of her own life for a Mafia boss who barely really cares for other (but she don't know that), or does she regret killing poor Ms. Fortune, who she herself was fighting for her family?

    WHO KNOWS. (well I guess you can pester Peter about it.)

    If theirs one ending that does seem the most legit, it'll have to be Doubles ending, well, techniqually the scenes that happen after Doubles ending.

    Mother (The Great Mother), Aeon and Venus are all on the stain glass windows and the giant statue in the Grand Cathedral, as to what their role truly is, well, were just gonna have to wait for a sequel or something, when I assume the true story will commence.
    All endings are non-cannon. Which is what Venus was explaining at the end. These are all "what" ifs. Upcoming DLC or the sequel will have all the answers.

    But it is possible for some events in those endings to come true though. I just don't want Ms. Fortune to die. (well again technically) I hate it when I invest myself in a character so much only for the creator to kill them off. It's a problem I already have with the comic industry, I don't want the video game one to follow suit.

    Anyways, back on topic. Does it ever elaborate that anyone other than Dr. Avian was killed in the attack on Lab 8 during Peacock's story? Because that might shoot down any hope for Leduc or Hive being DLC.

    I'm pretty sure the events for each character never truly happened, Venus and Aeon made it pretty dag clear in that secret scene at the end of Doubles story.I think it may be better to ask Ravidrath for any story related stuff.

    Anyway, Fortune Story mode pics!

    I question if the Medici Mafia have a fetish for fish girls if their just targeting the ladies. None of us knew that Black Dahlia's gun-slinging Arm was actually a mechanical arm till both Fortunes, and Peacocks endings, makes her even more interesting.

    I foresee a Cerebella hatedom, specially among Fortune's fandom.

    Good thing Bella's my second favorite and she didn't do anything bad to Parasoul. :P I don't have to hate her... though I'm not liking the sound of this asshole in her ending.

    Also notice that she actually has a noes, lol, not many people knew that till now.

    Gonna try to finish up on Filia then I'll move on to Parasoul and Double.

    Note people, I cannot do the scrolling art pieces like the one Double image that has her.......having fun with the rest of the cast, heh heh!
    I can try to put two pieces together. I know their are folks that can do so perfectly.

    Damn Cerebella is strong. Did she grind Ms. Fortune's body into blood in order to piece the life gem back together? Well her ending probably won't end up being the cannon one. I think Ravid was trolling us when he told us that Filia was going to die of Mercury poisoning right before she beat Marie.

    After running through the game with each individual character on the roster, I have to say that Mike and his team did an excellent job on the story. It was neither paper thin nor was it heavy handed, but done so in a way that forces the player to create his own interpretations of whats going on or what has happened. An many if not all of them struck a chord inside me that I wish to address.



    Painwheel's story grabbed because it was about a girl forced into something she wanted nothing to do with, and her quest for vengeance on those responsible for turning her into the monster she is now. I had thought at first she was gonna wish that she be turned back to normal, but I was shocked that she turned around and destroyed the Skull Heart, stating that she didn't want to be controlled by anyone ever again. Not by Valentine, Brain Drain or anyone. But it really struck me in the gut that when she tried to return home to her normal life with her parents and the way they reacted to how she looked, man, I couldn't help but feel for her. An decided that I'd make her my main, though I had already made that decision from when I saw the walkthrough of her put up by Mike.



    Fillia's story to me left a lot of plot holes, though not on the same scale as Mass Effect 3 and their space magic. It never really went into detail on how she obtained Samson, who her parents are (though it is found later on that she is related to the Medicci family by Marie), and why did she lose her memories? The most we were able to grab was that she and Carol (Painwheel) were friends, though in her case she couldn't remember for the life of her. After obtaining the skull heart instead of wishing for them back, she instead wishes for Carol to be turned back to normal, whether it was out of guilt or some sort. I don't know but the price for making such a wish was for her to be turned into the next Skullgirl slowly but gradually, indicating that she did not have a pure heart in my opinion.





    Peacock's was straight up bad ass, pure bad ass. At the beginning I had thought that she was just straight up a cold killing monstrosity, well, technically she is but she has a lot of depth to her character. Especially when she finds out that the doctor who helped in her creation was killed by Vallentine, and she made it her mission to get revenge and kill the skullgirl Marie in the process. I had honestly thought she was gonna make a wish to bring him back, but look at my surprise when she made up her mind to destroy it. Possibly knowing that even if she made a good wish, its definitely not for free as her friend Marie is a perfect example to that. I really enjoyed it.





    Miss Fortune was the same as Peacock's though it also left a few question percolating in my mind unanswered, but I'll simply have to wait and see what Mike and his buddies end up doing with the story. I enjoyed her character and that she wanted the skullheart to bring her friends who were killed by the Mob back to life. Though in the end after confronting Marie and winning, it made her realize that she already have a new family. One that she is willing to do whatever it took to protect them, and noted that even if she did wish her friends back there would've been terrible consequences as she would've ended up like Marie. Who herself is very similar to Fortune.




    Parasoul's brought a tear to my eye and pissed me off immensely. Though my anger was mostly directed at her idiotic little sister who felt compelled to claim the skull heart as it somehow reminds her of her moth, forcing Parasoul to take it and wish that she would become the next skullgirl and that her sister would. never be one herself. Story was great and too the point, and made my respect for the Princess grow even though she ends up turning into the very thing she hates in the future. And made it a point to train her sister so that when the time comes she would be able to handle her.




    Cerebella's story made me wanna put my fist through the tv screen to be honest, especially because of that asshole Vitale and his blatant way of treating her as a tool rather than someone to care about. If it was reverge lab's job to make me hate the guy, then they did a wonderful job at it as I wanted to reach through the damn screen and wring his blood neck. Her story through my eyes basically showed me a young woman who was willing to do anything to gain his affections, even if its something she really doesn't want to do. And I am assuming that its the first time she's ever killed anyone as she showed immense regret for what she did, and basically realizes that Vitale will never view her as nothing more than a tool to exploit and not as a person who loves him. I was also very mad at the way she gave Fortune the Coal treatment in order to get the Life Gem, though it was interesting to note that the skullheart said that Cerebella's heart was pure. Though she had no desire to make a wish, and at least that was the saving grace of it all. Interesting story, but it still pissed me off.




    Valentine's was definitely the most surprising because as you venture through the game with each character you just see the antagonist side of her. But seeing things in her own eyes, from how Marie killed off her family, to shouldering Painwheel's hatred for what she did to her and to her self sacrifice in the end really blew me away. She was the last person I had expected to have a great stoy and plot going for her, so Mike has my pat on the back for that.



    Double.... wow, I don't even know what to exactly say for that blob/nun in disguise. Other than I did not see that coming at the end, though I was very annoyed to have to use Double to be Marie, and I believe it is my opinion that she has to be one of the most cheapest bosses in a fighting I have ever fought. Oh my God, I thought Seth was bad, but that girl takes the whole damn cake. The only way I could've beaten her legitimately was to cheese her to death with multi-hitting moves like Painwheel's jump Hp, and Fillia's jump Mp. If you can beat her in any other way consistently then my hat is off to you as I simply wanted to check out the story and give my thoughts about it and the characters over all. I gotta say that I really enjoy this game, though I will have to admit that this is the first time I have ever had to use six buttons in a fighting game and for me its on a PS3 controller. But nevertheless, Mike and his team gave me a wonderful experience with the story mode and makes me wonder just what else does he have up his sleeve to add on to the game.



    Sorry if my post was a bit long, but I couldn't help but want to share my input it on all that I had experienced. Thanks for reading, and for those who posted on the thread. Really shows a lot, especially since we can all come together and share our thoughts on feeling on the matter that is.... SKULLGIRLS!!!!!

    There were several story artists - I'm not even sure if Ahad did any of the story sequences at all. There were at least two that did the different segments of Ms.Fortune's - the intro and outro of her story are totally different styles.
    Painwheel's story also had some fairly radically different art than the rest of the game, though it's so different that it could be one artist deliberately changing for those segments.

    I played Peacock's story first and that was just straight up awesome. It only lasted a little while but the depth of it resonated really well and left me satisfied and anticipating the continuation of the canonical story.

    And then there's Valentines story which just blew me away. At first I just saw Valentine as a opportunistic, megalomaniacal woman in pursuit of the Skullheart's power for herself, but then, come to find out, she's been the inside man the whole time and she's willing to sacrifice herself in order to save the world from these mysterious "masters".

    Even though they may not be the canonical paths, I do hope that the character depth and development translates over to the true story.

    The better way to see the scene with the Divine Trinity is as an ending distinct from Double's. My guess is these three are the real "big bads" from the Skullgirls universe.

    You are right. Real good story here.

    Cerebella's ending has surprised me the most. She may be pure love, but love =/= good. Brutal in every way. I hate those medici bastards, and although I feel sorry for her, her act was horrible, specially considering that Nadia told her what the Medicis have done. Although now I like her less that was a very emotional ending and a good job from the labs.


    Peacock's also has surprised me. She is quite heroic, contrasting with our expectations. She is like a brutal Batman in her ending. Also the most heartwarming ending.

    Fillia's story doesn't answer questions (leave to a DLC char story), and she accepts that to help a person in need. Bittersweet.

    Painwheel's is sad, just sad. Brain Drain must be a boss in the future.

    Parasoul is also sad. Talk about bad luck having the heroine's sister life depend on the Skullheart. Sad also.

    Ms. Fortune was quite heroic. I think the writers have thought that what happened in Bella's ending was enough horror for the cat. Still it is funny how in one path she desires her family and in another she desires revenge.

    Valentine is quite the anti-hero, isn't she? She is the Jack Bauer of the Canopy Kingdom.

    Double eats everyone in a Lovercraftian scene.The Skullheart is NOT the big bad.

    Marie is cool. I hope for a future playable version of her.

    Yeah I get that too, that the Divine Trinity are the true villains behind the scenes. Double most likely serves them. As we saw in her story, Double was the one who gave the Skull Heart to Marie in the first place, also that she's actively searching for new host for the Skull Heart. Marie may be just a pawn in a bigger game.

    During all the stories you played Valentine was all "OH GOD, SCARS ARE SO HOT, I'M GOING TO SCAR YOUR SO BAD AND THEN I'M GOING TO DO AUTOPSIES ON YOU AND SHIT AND I'M SO EVIL MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA" to being a sympathetic loldoubleagent type of character that came across as completely different from the Valentine you fought 6 times already.

    I second this.
    Through yes the story mode was short, when more characters are introduced, we should see some proper Rival battles and such.

    I would definitely love a graphic novel or something if Alex ever decides to do so.

    my impressions of the story paths:
    Spoiler:

    honestly i would have preferred the Mortal Kombat style of switching around characters in a linear progressing narrative.

    i figure it'd be easy to make more story since its not voiced all text. i also wished there was a tag-team with Filia-Painwheel when they met up.

    Admittedly I thought Valentine's portrayal in her story was very different too, but I don't see why she can't be evil and obsessed with autopsies and want to destroy the Trinity.

    Can someone explain Double's ending to me

    1. Double is a creature that basically "consume's" it's victim's and copies their powers (kind of like kirby).
    2. Double was searching for a replacement because she knew that Marie wasn't following HQ's orders, HQ wanted to only destroy Lab Zero and Eight so that all threats to the skullgirl would be eliminated. Marie's spirit was strong enough to resist being completely controlled (similar to painwheel) and she was going to use her power to exact revenge on the Medici family for murdering her family. Double would not allow her to this.

    3. When Double defeats Marie she literally eats her, coughs back up a new host, and then digests the rest in her fat tummy.
    4. Mother, Venus, and the other chick are the three overarching villains of the universe and they control whats going on. Double is their pawn

    I know there non-canon, Reverge didnt have the time. But that's what Double ending/story was.
    ...No it wasn't. The whole point of the oh shit going on was to mess with you. Double's ending is basicly explaining to you how nothing is cannon and everything is just a "what if?" *my take on it after I saw Venus' text...and after I was told nothing was canon... Ravidrath ftw.

    I like the ending. Stories were cool, a few were sad :[

    I think it's clever how the 3 bosses are a nurse, a nun, and a maid, symbolizing there is someone above them (Doctor, Priest, Master).

    Ms. Fortune had it coming.
    You don't say that you're going to kill her family when someone can grind her into Diamonds.
    She was too dumb to live simple as that.

    Also, did you guys heard?
    Beowulf is coming from Retirement

    That is a very good point. She did threaten Bella's family. But it is still appaling what the grappler is willing to do for a bunch of murderers and slave traders.

    Well, I guess if I was in her situation the only thing I could do was asking the heart to mercy kill Fortune. Or to remove the Life Gem from her body and then snap her neck.
    One complaint that i have is how "different" the characters are from Story to Story.
    Mainly Valentine.
    I just felt it came out, completely out of nowhere without build or flow

    Felt that too. I guess we would need more history to explain this dicotomy but sadly, short in cash and money.

    I guess Valentine is just a person who is fully aware of her mind sickness and just goes with it.
    Or at least a more extreme version of people's behavior. Instead of loving close ones and ignoring others she loves close ones and murders others.

    Some Cerebella Story mode pics!



    Sorry boys, Cerebella already has a Waifu!



    Wish she was sitting on my lap! Vitale knows how to pick'em.



    Sadness, even Vice Versa is sad.

    Could be cause she made a wish to the Skull Heart to obtain the Life Gem at the cost of her own life for a Mafia boss who barely really cares for other (but she don't know that), or does she regret killing poor Ms. Fortune, who she herself was fighting for her family?

    WHO KNOWS. (well I guess you can pester Peter about it.)


    Will do!

    I really wish this waifu thing would disappear... its fucking weird and annoying. As a side note, its husbandu when you're talking about a guy and a guy (or two guys)

    I second this.
    Through yes the story mode was short, when more characters are introduced, we should see some proper Rival battles and such.

    I would definitely love a graphic novel or something if Alex ever decides to do so.

    I care, usually, when a company puts major effort into telling a story.

    We're conditioned to not care because Games like King of Fighters, Street Fighter, and Guilty Gear didn't really do much to push their story forward. Mortal Kombat, Soulcalibur, Tekken, and now Skullgirls are examples of games that try very hard to teach you about their lore and characters.

    Street Fighter has bouts of trying, but mostly it just goes for campy humor over real story depth.

    My suspicion about Valentine was correct. I'm glad.

    Also, could someone post the image where Valentine is biting her mask. It's so creepy and sexy. I'm all confuzzled.

    Just finished Filia's story. I almost threw my stick at the tv out of frustration at Marie. When I beat her, I was like "The ending better be worth it."
    After I watched the ending, I was like "...Oh my god I hate you all so goddamn much for making that ending. GODDAMIT I LOVE IT AND HATE IT AT THE SAME TIME"
    And then Filia became my favorite character in Skullgirls.

    I wonder if, would Brain Drain ever become a playable, if his final fight would be against Painwheel instead of Marie. Just to continue Painwheel's story.

    Does anything happen when you time out win against marie? does she have a timeout lose pose like the other characters?
