    @Doctrine Dark It's Judgement Girl week. Which also means a week of Judgement Girl AAC entries
    The man I face...my closest friend, my brother in arms, and my greatest rival...how has it come to this?

    Judgement Girls favor Chun-Li

    Judgement girls are at least better than kinda sorta Ruby Heart and her brothers. Though half the judgment girls look like Chun-Li knockoffs

    Based on Ruth Nash's post only 28.6% (2/7) Judgment Girls look like Chun Li

    But if it means I get Rugal and the New Faces Team back I am 100% cool with it.
    It's kinda weird that, if they knew that's how they were going to end the game, they brought back Vice and Mature for THIS game, when they were also dead. Sure, they've been back before, they were just shadows. Wouldn't it have made more sense for them to just not be in this game, then revive them along with everyone else?

    In 15 I'm sure we're just gonna get a Vice, Mature, Rugal team. And Iori is going to have to find new teammates.

    Eh, they've been 'alive' for a few games now and they're very popular. Dropping them would have been weird. Plus they're Orochi types, so maybe after clawing their way back into reality as ~shadows~ they've slowly become more real.

    Why would Rugal want them back, though? They were spies working for Goenitz. If GOENITZ returns I could see them on a team with him, though. Personally I love the Yagami Team and would like to see them stay with Iori.

    Man, with all these mentions of Ingrid, the meta data stats for Ingrid continue to increase. Gotta love 21st century data mining. It pays hardly any attention to the opinions attached to terms.

    Seems like Capcom got the conditions for judgement girls wrong lol. They dont come in the event of a time out. They ONLY come out when there is a draw game.

    I.e double knockout in a round or both players with equal health at the end of timer.

    Its a nice touch but given the rarity of both events was probably a waste of resources in the end even though the character designs are quite cool. British equestrian lady and fair libra are my favs.

    SF, world-wise, looking more like KOF is a GOOD thing...especially with how absolutely awesome KOF 14's simple story is compared to the yawn fest that is SFV's totally expected rehash of SFA3.

    In fact, KOF actually made me go "HOLY SHIT!" when a certain character returned

    If you mean...
    Ash Crimson.

    Then yeah, I reacted the exact same way.

    And tbh...
    Though I'd normally be against this sort of thing, I kinda like the idea of Verse being able to resurrect dead characters within KOF. As far as we know, about 30(?) something characters have been resurrected. I wonder who they could be... I'd imagine the Orochi trio would've been brought back as well.

    Yes, that character indeed since I am a fan. That was awesome.

    If they bring back who you mentioned I'll also be psyched since I'm a major fan of them a well.

    Hell, what I'm really hoping is that the now-Chinese-owned SNK will use this as an opportunity to bring in some of the non-canonical KOF Chinese manhua characters that were killed in the comics. The manhua characters are actually REALLY damn enduring in China and several other places so it would make sense...and give us some new characters. Hell, Sylvie Paula Paula seems like a direct reference to the manhua character Magnet Storm (another NESTs agent) with her attacks and element
    "Punks jump up to get beat down"

    I designed SFV Ed. Your argument is invalid.

    Thanks, bak.

    I remember awhile back when I read some bullshit EX story guide where it said Hokuto was teaming up with Kairi to take on Bison during EX2. It also said Vega killed Hayate during the tournament, causing Hokuto to awaken into her Bloody state. That and the phony plot point of Kairi wiping Akuma out can be forgotten about altogether now.

    What like the whole game? Not really, that should be Arika's or Namco's job.

    Just the bios of the characters, aside from the special moves, that's really all there is. Like EX, Arika takes the minimalist approach when it come to story.

    Coincidence or not, my copy of "Street Fighter V Pia Encyclopedia Mook" arrived today. There, there's a section with a short profile of all main SF characters, including the EX ones. I'm not sure if there's anything new/interesting there (I think that it covers more the gameplay than the character's story, even the Satellite ARK-99 is there).

    Anyway, the pages for the SFEX characters:

    imgur.com/a/9K8Qk

    Hope this can be of any use.

    Nice. You planning on uploading the rest of the pages?

    I find it funny however that instead of using Ace's official artwork, the magazine used a fan made image of him, edited from
    Haiji's artwork from The Fallen Angels.

    Interesting stuff. Doctrine Dark is one of those characters you feel sorry for. He's not only filled with hatred for Guile after seeing his fellow soldiers slaughtered, but he seems to believe that killing others is his only way of staying alive. That mercenary school must've been a hellish experience for Holger.

    I remember when it was said Cracker Jack was a member of Shadaloo, but these profiles only mention an organization instead. Seems like a pretty chill dude.

    Hmmm. So Vulcano also belongs to an organization? I wonder who he's seeking for revenge. Maybe Shadaloo?

    What more needs to be said about Garuda? Dude is a fucking beast. I also like the confirmation of Garuda>Akuma even though we already knew that.

    Had no idea the Cycloids were against each other. Cool.

    Thanks to all of you for the amazing work you've done.

    Also from Kiki, that with his weak redesign of Smalt Raven ruined his chances of return into SF in disguise

    I didn't even know their characters had bios. :pensive:

    Yep, it was all on the Arika website (the key word being was).

    But not to worry, I got the link (though I had to jack Professor Peabody's Wayback Machine to access it).

    https://web.archive.org/web/20070630015828/http://www.arika.co.jp/product/fl/chara.html

    It's basically just the story and move list for most of the characters. Vold (the game's final boss), the animals and the knight don't get them, though.
