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:

Poetic for a 2 hit combo is a reference to James Chen and his video

#6

Awesome keep em’ coming. I did not pick-up on some of these.


#7

In one of Filia’s intro, Samson might say “Don’t think, fight!” as a reference to "Don’t think, feel!"
Or whatever it was.


#8

The core gameplay, the well thought out navigation design etc make this game great…

But this shit here makes it godlike.


#9

One of Ms. Fortune’s colours happens to be Darkstalker’s Morrigan. Looks really hip as well.


#10

Peacock’s item drop drops Hsien-ko’s Tenrai Ha (both full and one ball versions.)
also, the Steamroller (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, WRRRRYYYYYY.)
and Japanese Ms. Fortune Head (Not sure, can someone fill me in on this?)
Also she has her steamboat willie colour palette.
I also got Cerebella’s derpy looking cat creature to come out, not sure how and not sure if it references something.
Umbrella also references KFC combos (a reference to the short-lived XFC typo meme, GET IN LINE.)
As well as Sonic Boobs (Gimmeh the Chocolate. Skeet Fighter.)
Parasoul has a Kneesocks palette from the anime Panty and Stocking.
Filia has a High School of the Dead uniform colour palette.
Announcer says “Now that’s real soviet damage!” a reference to Mike Z’s Tager video.
He also says “It’s Super Effective!” a Pokémon game reference.
He also says “The Gorilla Fate is yearning!” a reference to the Blazblue entry announcement.


#11

In Parasoul’s Story Mode, Umbrella makes a reference to the old pre-release MvC3 KFC combo meme.

#12

Most obvious ones are the A3 commentator quotes.


#13

Funny intro quote bella vs fortune. “You can haz cheezeburger?” - Cerebella “Thats racist!” - Ms Fortune


#14

I believe it’s a reference to those Touhou heads (“Take it easy!”) Yukuris.


#15

Double also has a Sub-zero slide move, as well as a R.Mika (or Hugo?) buttslam move, as well as her Gradius reference in her Level 5.


#16

The actual act of Peacock’s item drops maaaaaay be an homage to Bad Luck Blackie, a classic Tex Avery cartoon where a small cat blows a whistle to call a black cat to give a troubling dog bad luck, which results in crap literally falling on his head.

#17

Not sure if it’s intentional, but Double’s translucent green palette reminds me of Flubber lol, also her “oil” palette kind of makes me think of Inque from Batman Beyond…

Ms Fortune says “Sufferin Succotash” vs Peacock. Umbrella mentions KFC combos in Parasoul’s story mode (a reference to vanilla MvC3’s early days on SRK maybe?).

Edit: Ninja’d D:


#18

The full quote is “I thought I’d get to see your sonic boobs, pool balls and KFC combos!” Pool balls being a Venom reference?


#19

Thanks, I couldn’t for the life of me remember the line, and yes I’m pretty sure that pool balls is a Venom reference.


#20

Isn’t Bonus-kun Ryu’s bag to begin with?
