If you have not already noticed Skullgirls has a ton of really great easter eggs and homages to past fighters, pop culture, old school gaming, and the FG community. I thought it would be fun to list them as people find them and give others a chance to look for them as well.

As per the suggestion of not so saint I will do my best to keep this thread cleaned up and structured. The categories are divided as such:
  • Palettes
  • Move animations
  • Quotes (either text or voiceovers)
  • Stages
  • Misc
