The Birth of True Skullgirls Combat: Fugazi

Broseidon RexBroseidon Rex God of the BroceanJoined: Posts: 118
On an undetermined night at Evo2012, a group of Skullgirls player stumbled upon a new form of fighting. Eschewing non-essential parts of the game such at "grabs", "hit-confirms", and "air combos", they have distilled the game into its most basic and brutal form: punching people in the face. Enter Fugazi!

Fugazi is played by both characters creating a two person team of Double and Cerebella. The Cerebella assist is set as forward + s.HP (Titan Knuckle) and Double's assist as s.HP (Fugazi Knuckle). Match time should be set to infinite since a pure game like Fugazi must not allow such petty things to interfere.


After the ceremonial shaking of hands and announcement that this is indeed Fugazi, select a stage and prepare yourself for in Fugazi, only the two mentioned moves are allowed to be used. Use of any other move that hits results in great shame and a free Fugazi by the opponent. Accidental supers (hit or not) result in the offender being Fugazied three times. Assists are allowed and encouraged to be used (should you actually know how to use an assist...). Raw tag-ins would result in moves other than Fugazi to be used and are banned from usage. However, alpha counters would result in the use of Fugazi and are considered Kosher and legal.

During the proceedings of Fugazi, it is encouraged by everyone (or elected representatives) to make random baby sounds and yell Fugazi at appropriate moments. Though not necessary, Fugazi does support the EVO economy through its money matches and is encouraged.

The following video shows the first official match of Fugazi, while play testing and brainstorming of rules was first done mid-match during Fugazi.

    Never heard of this Minor Threat game. Can you post evidence of its existence?

    But it still is in vain for only Fugazi is the truest fighter.

    Fugazi (edited for boldness to convey the utmost of seriousness that is Fugazi) suite next year, make it happen. Also I forgot to ask you about that Thor shirt you had; who, what, where, when, why, and how much?

    I was just about to post details on a suite.

    Next year I will do better to organize a suite IN ADVANCE.
    At this suite we will have SG casuals, MM, and runbacks.

    As a special event, everyone who comes to the suite will put their names in a hat.
    Two names will be drawn, and they will be forced to money match one another in a sacred game of Fugazi.
    Side bets MUST be had.

    The winner will win their dolla dolla bills, and will invited to join the illustrious Fugazi Illuminati, which is signified by a high five in the bathroom and the ceremonial 'placing of the hat'.

    I am currently working on making said hats for founding members Severin, KenInBlack, Broseidon, and myself.

    only one OFFICIAL Fugazi battle will be had a year.

    FUGAZI ON MY BROTHERS!

    people who call others hipsters unwarranted in the FGC have always been fat neck bearded virgins who are jealous of others ability to get some and play Fugazi.

    Fugazi is a weak band, ergo a weak game by default.

    What does the word fugazi mean?
    I've heard it could be referencing an old movie called Donnie Brasco, where a diamond is considered fake, or Fugazi.
    In this light, it's a clever reference to Cerebella's (aka the "Diamond Dynamo") Titan Knuckle since Double's is "Fugazi Knuckle" or "Fake Knuckle"

    Not 100% sure, but it seems reasonable.
    I can decide. this is goddamn brilliant
    Don't worry, Duckie, fixed it for you.

    Fugazi means "fake diamond", which makes sense contextually to the game since its an imitation move of Cerebella, who is all about dem diamonds.


    Your pun was weak, a stretch at best, and took more dots to connect then a google search, which was the first thing I did, then stopped caring.

    EDIT: looked up the band, you are right they are shit. they tarnish the name of Fugazi

    Wasn't thinking that Minor Threat would be referring to a band, so ignored the top google hits. Sorry about that.

    It's almost like a western showdown since it's all about timing and tension. In those movies, why don't they all just start shooting immediately? Is it because they think they'll miss? Because they know that at a certain point, the opponent may not be 100% focused? Fugazi is a side game where you aren't worried about combos (though they are possible) but more about feeling out the opponent, baiting them to mess up, and timing your punishable hits appropriately.

    Plus, Ken in Black commentating and lack of sleep helped make it hilarious.

    I kinda get it now, reminds me of that Kirby Samurai game in Kirby Super All Stars or whatever it was called.

    I think the thing that weirded me out most was the fact that you actively are ignoring aspects of the game that could be used instead of just playing a game with similar mechanics,such as DiveKick, but oh well.

    Actually did think of that, yes.

    I was gonna write it in the previous post (but didn't) that this is not supposed to replace Skullgirls, just be an important side-game to the regular action. Plus, in DiveKick, you have to worry about 2 dimensional attacks (horizontal and vertical). In Fugazi, there is only one dimension where attacks are possible (horizontal).

    Hopefully, Fugazi will become a full-fledged side option in the game, to prevent un-initiated members from being Fugazied without warning.

    Honestly, no I never did either. I've done near death matches (where both start out at no health) but that happened once and I never bothered with it again.

    These hits also include your assist getting hit. What would be a reasonable consequence for someone getting a 3 hit combo (it is possible) or a 4 hit (haven't seen it yet) using fugazi?
