skullgirls-top4-150x

After weeks of voting and endless discussion, we are now down to the final four characters in the first Skullgirls DLC vote. Aeon, Annie, Eliza, and Minette comprise the last group of cast members who have a chance to be included in the indie fighter. With stiff competition like Stanley, Beowulf, Panzerfaust, and Isaac now out of the running, this final round of voting is sure to be the fiercest, so remember to keep campaigning for your favorite!

Feel free to visit the comments below and let us know which of these four will be receiving your vote.

  • Kendall Kildare

    Minette

    • datagram

      …why?
      I’m genuinely curious why people want to see her as a playable character.

  • [ Mauricio ]

    Voting Annie, bring it on!

  • James Reilly

    Voting Annie but would be fine with Minette.

  • Bavo Bruylandt

    This worried me more: NeoGAF forums

    “Basically, they are terrified of chargebacks. If we spend all the money and don’t deliver and everyone chargebacks, Paypal is concerned they will be on the line for it. So they are effectively treating it as a loan. I mean, the guy flat-out said, “Until the threat of chargebacks has passed, Paypal is effectively financing your development.”
    They also asked if we’re good for the $700,000 if something goes wrong. I said “No,” because, well… we’re not? The whole point of crowdfunding is to give us the money to develop stuff, not take out a loan.’

    any news?

    • Keith_e

      I dont see this is different from every other indiegogo or kickstarter thing that gets created, so I dont think there is an issue at all.

      • Bavo Bruylandt

        In this case so many ‘donators’ pulled their money back (because of losing the character vote) that Paypal got worried about the product being sold

        • Disco-lemonade

          I don’t think that’s the case. I think it’s more along the lines of a “just in case” since there’s close to a million dollars being given here. If Labzero spends it and people do decide to pull their money out through scummy mehtods, Paypal’s gotta give the money back. They’re just trying to protect themselves.

        • No, Paypal is worried that Labzero isn’t a legit business and won’t finish the promised Dlc. In such an event, a person could get there credit card to reverse the charges, and because Labzero could in no way pay them, Paypal would be on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is all Paypal, and has nothing to do with people asking for refunds.

          • Bavo Bruylandt

            Good guess.
            But actually there were a lot of people asking their money back and acknowledging that they did get it back. Which triggered paypal to act.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            Whether you’re right or wrong, so much for Skullgirls fanbase being awesome. >.>

    • LangleyTerra

      Honestly, anyone who reneged a donation because of their character not getting in is some S-tier scum of the Earth. There’s even the next round of voting to consider! As someone whose entire initial 4 are out (Isaac, Molly, Adam and Feng), I find it disgusting that individuals old enough to donate to something like this could be so childish.

      • Ben Brocka

        Come to think of it, did anyone renege on the Evo donations? That was a concern in that case too. I just have a hard time thinking a significant enough % of people are, well, that big of douchebags for it to be a significant risk but maybe I’m wrong.

  • Petran79

    I thought at least one male character would survive!

    Damned bronies….

    Since Black Dahlia is out, I vote for Minette too.

    • If you want a badass evil character like black dahlia, Eliza is the way to go!

    • Ben Brocka

      Part of the appeal of this game has been that it has been unafraid to feature strong female protagonists/antagonists, and the character voting included a large number of great female (and male) options as well. I’m not a fan of most of the final four here for my own reasons, but I seriously doubt the “bronies” are responsible for a female final 4.

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      “Damned bronies….”

      wut

  • Expiriment_Kow

    Been pulling for Minette since round 1!1 Let’s do it!

  • TIME TO WIN THIS MINETTE, LET’S GO!

  • Nevflinn

    I’m saddened that Isaac’s not in Top 4, but Annie will do just as nicely. Let’s go Annie!

  • YourAshyAss_Elbows

    Oh hell no…

    EDIT:I mean, I DID vote on Eliza because shes a sassy motha fucka but, i’m sayin’; We had crazy dudes with tanks on their arms n shit, like a very, very tall lady( a HUGE bitch man) n shit. and. shark people. n and damn. I mean I like these designs, but this is so unexpected lol

    • Well, make sure to continue the badass vote, since Eliza is the only badass left!

      • I see only one character with an eyepatch and it’s not Eliza.

        • spades111

          not bad ass, more like someone smacked their child too hard, left a mark and now she’s out for revenge. I can’t call this almost loli design bad ass =S

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          I don’t recall Patchy the Pirate ever being described as badass.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            You aren’t reading hard enough.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            I’m just saying that eyepatch doesn’t always equal badass.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            You are right. Eyepatchs do not declare one a badass. But she is indeed a badass despite what people delude themselves to thinking about her being loli based on a loose definition that is taken too far out of context. I don’t know about anyone else, but she is honestly the most pleasing character in terms of design, story, and gameplay as a whole. Eyepatch or not.

          • Know_the_ledge

            I agree tenfold with everything you just said.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            I’m not saying that Annie isn’t a badass. I’m merely saying that eye patches are no indication of one’s badassery.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            Never accused you of saying Annie wasn’t a bad ass. I was just clearifying that she is indeed a bad ass. She deserves it c:

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            I never accused you of accusing me of saying that Annie isn’t a badass. I’m just clarifying my stance of not accusing Annie of not being a badass. 😛

    • Yagami Sakazaki

      What the fuck?! Stanley is OUT?! Panzerfaust is out?! Un-fucking-believable.
      I threw away my votes on Stanley and Panzerfaust for nothing then. -.- That fucking sucks. >.<

      SALTsui no Hado… -.-

      • Gailim

        they can still get in. there will be another vote after and everybody will back on the table

      • Roxy

        Did any mans even get into the DLC roster?

        • SolsticeOfGravity

          Big Band.

  • John Goldberg

    Looking good so far with the voting!

    Also, wtf is this I’m hearing? People pulling their money out because their character didn’t win the vote…? >__>;

    • Pooh Hardy

      with the characters who were left in, i would too
      no panzerfaust, no stanley, no isaac, no baewolf
      its as if the people voted with their penises again

      • ExHaseo

        If people voted with their penises, and we got a girl who is an hourglass, a girl who bleeds everywhere, a loli, and a fish, then there is something seriously wrong with people’s penises.

        • Psycho Power J

          Well, nobody ever said they were smart penises.

        • Ben Brocka

          Excuse me I’m here for the loli fish hourglass that bleeds everywhere

      • datagram

        I wish people were voting with their penises, ’cause then Venus and her sweet space-bending power would still be in the running.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        Scumbag much?

    • Ben Brocka

      IndieGoGo takes your money immediately when you pledge; I doubt anyone *can* pull their money at this point.

      • Disco-lemonade

        No, but you can claim credit card fraud.

        • TheAquacharger

          Or a paypal dispute.

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          I’d like to hope that credit card companies are smarter than that. I’d really really like to. D:

          • Christopher Wrightson

            They aren’t 🙁 I’m sorry to disappoint.

      • ReddChief78

        Theres a article on EventHubs about this their account is with paypal and they froze the account because of this and people are real assholes if they want their money back from a donation its suppose to be helping the devs not buy a character

  • DoubleSickle

    1 character I really want in the game, 2 characters I’m cool with if they get in, and 1 character whom I loathe. Why did Annie get this far? Is it because angry loli? I disagree gentlemen! Blood for the Blood Goddess! Vote Eliza!

    • DoubleSickle

      Also.. pulling out your money? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard… you paid to add a character as determined by a vote. There were like 32 characters, there’s a chance you might not get your exact character in. Don’t forget there’s another vote after this for another character… and either way it’s increasing the roster!
      That being said.. I say vote for interesting new mechanics and consistant Skullgirls design like Aeon’s or Eliza’s.

      • Guest

        Wait, is that how it’s gonna go? There’s gonna be two voting sessions, one for each character? I thought the top 2 from this voting would be the ones picked.

        • DoubleSickle

          Two voting sessions. One for each character. Voting on the second will start right after voting for the first is finished.

          • ExHaseo

            That’s odd. The voting will likely go the exact same way. Since it’s all the same people voting, and they’re all going to choose the same character(s).

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            Not necessarily. I could see Umbrella and Beowulf (along with a few others) supporters hitting the campaigns hard during Round 2.

        • Ben Brocka

          I think it’ll go the same way as the first vote, though MikeZ said they’d try and make the second round go faster somehow

          • Keon Misterr

            A second round of voting just seems redundant. I don’t really see the outcome being any different.

          • Steven Tyler Parry

            But don’t you already feel different having seen the outcome of this? I know I would vote differently if one of these gets in. So would a large portion of the userbase most likely. Seeing which one wins will make people change strategy or try and pick something to compliment the one that already got in…. Not everyone of course but enough.

        • Ty Arnold

          It could be kind of different. If Aeon wins, for instance, I’m probably not voting for Isaac next round, since one time traveller would be enough for me.

    • CptPokerface

      It’s not some big mystery as to why Annie got as far as she did. Everyone going ” SHES A LOLI GET HER OUT” are only going by her appearance. Anyone who actually read her short bio knows she’s only a child by appearance. Add the fact that she has a far more straightforward playstyle said to be like that of Sol Badguy and you get a character lots of people want. If i could vote, I’d most likely vote for her, or Eliza.

      • Art Salmons

        A loli with a convoluted backstory is still a loli.

        • metaxzero

          I thought what defined lolis was being actual little girls. Also, why are lolis now inherently bad?

          • ZigTheHunter

            Because there are people insecure about their sexuality. They think the mere existence of a character who looks like a little girls will turn them into pedophiles.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            If anyone is that insecure and ashamed over liking something, then why the hell would they even bother playing a game called Skullgirls to begin with? Anyone voting should have already realized this game will never stop being female heavy and therefore filled with these so called “lolis”. I’m sure-you-can find a fighting game that meets your taste if you catch my drift. Sorry to crush so many nuts, but your prince is in another castle.

          • Langdon Herrick

            Or because most of them are nearly indistinguishable and extremely boring.

          • Johnny Donuts

            Or we just want the game to have some character variety. Annie is not unique in any way, there’s really nothing interesting about her.

          • shotofighter4

            Except for the demonic stuffed rabbit with an eye in its mouth?

        • CptPokerface

          I suppose Mega Man’s popularity and history is easily as dismissed. You know, since he’s designed to look just as young.

        • Austin Davoren

          BEST PART

    • Anne is Sol Bad Guy’s clone. Guilty Gear fans want her in.

      • Louis Lam

        I wanted her off the roster but know that I know she’s GG based I want her on the roster/

      • Milton O’Bannon

        Mike nor Alex confirmed Annie was going to play exactly like sol. Yes she is inspired by him but shes also inspired by many other characters such as Guts from Berserk. I don’t know why the hell everyone thinks shes going to be a copy and paste of sol. Shes going to have space like powers.(which was actually confirmed from Alex)

        • SolsticeOfGravity

          So imagine Platinum the Trinity mixed with Sol Baguy’s rushdown playstyle and attitude. Minus the cat missiles and prop attacks of course. I actually find her more badass for trying to execute such hard ass attacks with sparkles and rainbows.

  • Pooh Hardy

    who the fuck voted for these people?

    • Courtney Houston

      If I had to guess probably the majority of voters did. I know, it’s a crazy idea.

  • Mr. Irrelevant

    Voting for Eliza. One of the coolest concepts for a fighting game character and very reminiscent of Darkstalkers;

  • Lucas Andrews

    Dudes we are talking abou the great blood goddess Eliza and the flippin’ time goddess Aeon. Aeon’s story mode could totally explain how the skulllgirls things have started. I mean SHE IS FROM THE TRINITY!

    • Hunts Rattata

      Or Aeon’s story mode could be about Mother kicking her out and telling her to get a job. Either/Or.

      • Lucas Andrews

        Well Yeah. Not really GET a job since she is the maiden of the time but well she could DO a job like verifying if there was any girl that was worth of taking maries place and later then she herself taking care of Marie because she wasn’t obeying the trinity properly

  • Those of you who lost your manly badass votes, vote for a fellow badass, vote ELiza!

    * She has a huge Scythe as a weapon,
    * She has two attack modes.
    ` Strong mode: Strong/slow attacks
    ` Fast mode: She rips out her flippin’ SKELETON called Sekhmet and it
    attacks for her
    * Gets bleed on hit and uses that for specials.
    * Egyptian/Jazz music theme

    Blood for the Blood Goddess!

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      After giving it a long thought, I think I will vote for Eliza. I had to decide between her and Aeon, but I eventually decided that I don’t want a god-status character being introduced to the roster so soon.

    • Cat Astrophy

      You forgot sideboob. Her ace in the hole.

  • Flutterderp

    Man, every single character I was pulling for got eliminated this round. Now I don’t know what to do, except maybe vote for Minette out of spite.

  • samirerre

    i vote eliza

  • ArmoredBoar

    Why the fuck is Roll West: Master of Unlocking aka. Recycling Tadpole (lamest Maverick name ever btw) still in there

    VOTE ANNIE since Feng couldn’t make it
    rip in piece feng

    • Lucas Andrews

      Well mister there will be two votings so I guess we can still save feng. But Why vote an angry loli anyways? I guess Aeon or eliza would be way more worth our money

      • ArmoredBoar

        Well Annie is basically used as a propaganda tool and already an essential part of the story so I wanna see her develop. I wouldn’t mind Eliza or Aeon, but for the latter we already have Double for the whole “reused unused character moves” schtick and adding savestate manipulation to it, while interesting, would just make me wonder “Then what was the point of not making Double Aeon in the first place,” but that’s just me.

        In short, fuck Minette.

        • Lucas Andrews

          Well I really disagreed with “similar to double” fighting style. I guess we already have that creepy “nun” to do her copycat/creepypasta job. I think Aeon could be unique her own way I mean like Sakuya or Dio Brando. And also she haves a cool infinite like parasite That in my imagination would work like a boomerang and such. I’m just cheering for eliza as well cuz well all that ” blood for the blood queen” is making me think that eliza is like almost in the game. For annie I see no problem with her but she is quite stereotipycal but well Skullgirls can always surprise us maybe she’ll be not so previsible if put in game. Well I’m really not cheering for minnette Y’know she is cute and all but she doesn’t seem a fighting game character in her essence she could be like a Miss. Fortune suppert character that appeared in some specials or combos but not a character by herself. I was innitially cheering for Marie because y’know she is the main boss of the game and wouldn’t be fair if she wasn’t playable. I was already imagining ideas for her story mode and moveset. I think people sttoped voting her because or the other characters were too cool or maybe they tought that since she is already a boss probably sooner or later they’ll make her a playable.

  • As upset as I am by this outcome due to the lack of Issac and Black Dahlia in the running, I’m happy to see the ones left are girls… because you know.. it’s Skullgirls. :l

    • Isaac is a badass character and dahlia is a badass/evil character, vote Eliza to continue the spirit of badass/evil!

    • datagram

      Marie was the only character in the voting who is, or has ever been, a Skullgirl…

      • ReddChief78

        Thats why its called SKULLGIRLS not SKULLGIRL there all Skullgirls Marie is the Skullgirl that has the Skull heart right now

        • datagram

          No. You do not become a Skullgirl until you actually make a wish on the Skull Heart. Do you even play this game? Many of the characters’ story modes involve them having to make the decision of whether or not they want to actually become a Skullgirl in exchange for a wish.

      • OOOH MY GAAWD. Are you guize serious?! I’m just gonna stop jesting on this site because everyone gets so butthurt and/or nitpicky. I was more referring to the female aspect of the title, but yeah WHatever.

    • MasterScrub

      Skullgirls doesn’t refer to the cast. Also Big Band is in so there’s gonna be a dude either way.

  • papermarkis

    Mike Z tells fans specifically not to vote for Aeon. Fans vote for Aeon.

    • Flutterderp

      I was just trying to find a source for this. Why weren’t we supposed to vote for Aeon?

      • Mike Z said that he didn’t want people to vote for Aeon because he didn’t have no general idea of how he was going to make her play style. As of right now, it’s very random of what he’s going to have to do to her if he still doesn’t have something in mind for her.

        • Lucas Andrews

          Well But He still can make it. Double could be way more OP but she isn’t because they managed to balance her. Why not balance Aeon? I Mean They already have an example of how making a time manipulating character without making it OP (Sakuya from touhou)

          • Courtney Houston

            “If we actually made Aeon the way that she would have to be made, she wouldn’t be very balanced so vote for someone that’s not her”

            “In my eyes anyway, Aeon is the joke character of the cast, because I can’t think of a way to make her in which she would be remotely balanced. I am hoping that she doesn’t win just because whatever we do will be unimpressive because we will have to maker her fair. I would rather have her as a boss to be honest and I don’t like making boss only characters.”
            -Mike Z

          • Lucas Andrews

            I know what he said but that doesnt means that he cant figure out how to make Her not op

          • tilopud_rye

            Yeah- this is a thing. Also I believe either he or Alex Ahad said they planned out three games in the begining. Eliza was intended to be the boss of the 2nd game; Aeon was intended to be the boss of the third game. Aeon is supposed to be a mysterious character overseeing the events of the series from a distance then things would come together in the end. Having her in now would be like having ‘That Man’ playable in the original Guilty Gear. Either way- Aeon getting in now would be an extremely watered down version both in terms of playstyle and what her story mode would be. Every playstyle sounds more interesting than “intentionally OP boss character being held back” – even her gameplay description “you may not enjoy fighting against a divine being”

        Check the times at 5:12:51 and 5:22:54

    • gigantor21

      Then why’d they put her up for a vote? :p

      • tilopud_rye

        They didn’t think they would fund Squigly- let alone reveal the entire roster. Members of the team expressed regret about some of the decisions of the last row as they were intended to be held back for originally planned sequels

        • gigantor21

          …no, seriously, I don’t understand why they put characters they aren’t sure how to design/balance out up for a vote this early.

          I mean, she’s based on a goddamned emulator FFS. Replaying save states of attacks used on different parts of the screen? How the fuck would something like that even work outside of boss context? XD

    • Guest
      • Lucas Andrews

        I totally agree

      • Thesimpleway

        That’s some reverse psychology tactic there.

        You only can vote for aeon now 🙂

    • SolsticeOfGravity

      I have a feeling if Juju was in the running it would have the same effect, just because Mike Z voted against it. It shows you just how much people are affected by reverse psychology.

  • Jintsurikix

    The description of Aeon is insane. There is no other logical choice.

  • Adeel Siddiqui

    Since Beowulf, and Isaac are out, give me Aeon!

    Also hell to fuck no on Minette.

    • datagram

      An interesting point was raised that if Aeon gets in as the 1st character then it’ll probably lower Isaac’s chances of getting in as the 2nd character, since there will already be one time manipulation character.

  • Gogol Eliza!

  • LET’S GO ELIZA!! ALL THE WAY!!!

  • Know_the_ledge

    No dudes left, wtf! Anywho, voting Annie. The only badass left.

    • Ben Brocka

      Eliza’s a:
      – Villain
      – Vampire
      – With a Scythe (as big as her)
      – Attacks with her own blood
      But yeah, Annie’s the only badass

      • Know_the_ledge

        sorry, didn’t know she was a villain. Don’t know too much about her except for playstyle and none of that really constituted a bad ass to me. Hell, with the description you gave, she sounds more like an emo in disguise.

        • OrehRatiug

          And you sound like an imbecile, not in disguise at all!

          • Know_the_ledge

            come better, faggot

  • ExHaseo

    I’m honestly surprised that Aeon and Eliza are so popular.
    Aeon seems more like a boss than an actual character. I’ll admit her story seems interesting, but since her gameplay idea isn’t even fleshed out yet, it seems like it would be a bad idea to put that kind of pressure on LabZero.
    As for Eliza, I just don’t see the appeal. Since she’s going to be super high risk, since her moves sounds like they’re going to be base on the amount of blood on the stage (and likely the position), she’ll likely end up being a useless tournament character. You wouldn’t want your best combos to be left up to were you got hit or how close you are to dying. It’s entirely too risky when there’s a pot at stake.
    The other two I have no real complaints about, but I feel there were many better options on the initial list.
    Overall, I’m pretty disappointed that not a single character I voted for even made it past the second round. Which means I definitely wont be seeing them for at least a couple years, if ever. :/

    • Ben Brocka

      MikeZ confirmed that Eliza’s going to have non-blood attacks; there’s no way any character would survive ONLY based on their gimmicks. Agreed on Aeon though, not a fan of her. Especially if she’s another double; not sure if she will be, but that’s a risk I’m not willing to take. Clone characters are lame.

      • ExHaseo

        I’m aware that Eliza will have non-blood attacks. That’s why I said “best” combos.
        From what I gather. In order to balance it, her blood attacks would have to be useless, or she’ll have to be useless without them. If she’s powerful enough without them, then with them she’ll likely be too strong with them, or they just wont get used. If she’s too weak without them, then you’ll have to rely on them.
        Unless they do something like, her attack decreases the more blood she loses, but then can have longer combos using the blood, or something. Even then, she would likely become a progressively more execution intensive character as the battle progresses. Which is an interesting concept, and would probably be fun to play, if you put in the time to learn her. Kind of like Gen in SF. However, that’s not very reliable if you’re in a tournament. Which is why I think she’d end up being a useless tournament character.
        I could be wrong and they could totally pull it off, they’re professionals, and I’m not after all.
        I just don’t see why anyone would want to take that risk when there are other characters that could be put in instead.

        • Ben Brocka

          I doubt that; that’s like saying a character’s Supers either have to be useless or they have to be useless without them; that’s totally not the case. It’s a matter of using what you have when you have it. Just because a character has good Supers doesn’t mean they’re useless without meter.

          • ExHaseo

            There are characters that are useless without meter though. o_o

          • OrehRatiug

            But that doesn’t mean there aren’t characters that are good without meter, who gain benefit from meter as well. Execution barrier should not be a reason to avoid a character, if she is good people will use her regardless, like Viper.

        • Remember: Eliza’s main mechanic twofer two attack modes.

          Her faster attack mode is when she transforms to her skeleton parasite Sekhmet. Alex said it would be a dry skeleton so it would not have the blood mechanic.

          B/c of this, I think Eliza would bring in interesting mechanics to the tourney scene.

          • ExHaseo

            That’s true, but I think that just supports my Gen comparison. Very rarely do you see a Gen player, because he’s too execution heavy, too high risk, and too hard to use.
            Eliza will likely end up the same way. She’ll be largely a useless tournament character, except for the couple of people that took the time to learn her. Most people wouldn’t though, simply because there are more effective option.

        • high risk characters are not always bad.jane from umvc3 is as risky as it gets and people mad it work….they actually mad it broken.

          • ExHaseo

            I never said she’d be bad, just risky.
            In a game with safer options, most people wouldn’t want to take a risk when there’s something at stake, just for the sake of diversity.
            Marvel is actually a good example, there’s really only a handful of characters that get used, because they’re safer and easier to use. There’s always people that will use any character, but there are a lot of characters that go largely unused, because they’re too high risk.

    • Lucas Andrews

      I may disagree with Aeon concept. I have some cool ideas about her.
      I agree that she is a boss fitting character but what The playable Aeon is in fact a fe mirror image of herself that she made to take Care of the things Herz vessel double didnt manager to. The fake Aeon would have weaker attacks than the original (boss) Aeon.

  • Troy White

    It’s clear that the voting is rigged. How the Minette beat out Panzerfaust, Stanely, Isaac, AND Beowolf. That would mean that 12.5% of the fighting game community wanted a tadpole more than a male character.

    I wouldn’t do a charge back, but until the voters get answers I don’t blame people from doing charge backs.

    • ExHaseo

      I doubt it was rigged. If it was, why would Aeon, the character MikeZ told people not to vote for, because he wasn’t sure how to implement her yet, make it to the finals?
      Besides, there’s another round of voting for the second character, so it’s possible a different set of characters will come out this time. I doubt it, but we’ll see.

      • Art Salmons

        That’s just what he wants you to think.

    • ZenTzen

      you do know minette has been a pretty popularcharacter often asked to be put in the game right

      • ReddChief78

        No she she hasnt

        • Areksu Hideki

          Someone doesn’t know what they’re talking about

          I believe that’s the 3rd question stack of “plz be DLC?” they answered.

          • ReddChief78

            I rather believe what i actually read than a rigged poll and just now sense she is 1 of the last 4 she is getting alot talk and before then there where alot of other characters more talked about and wanted

        • OrehRatiug

          Oh holy shit, you really are retarded.

          • ReddChief78

            Holy hell your a dumb dumb

    • Ben Brocka

      My theory? Too many people voting for Stanley Isaac, Beo and Panzer on similar grounds split the votes. A big group of people seem to have just been “Kawaii all the way!” but the vote for the “baddass” characters has always been split. For example I thought I’d have a very tough vote here between Eliza, Isaac and Stanley; instead it’s straight Eliza though.

      No way it’s rigged though, Annie and Minette have had hype from the start. I haven’t agreed with it, and plenty of other characters had lots of hype, but I’m doubting any funny business was involved. I mean if they were going to rig the vote they’d probably rig for the characters MikeZ either said he wanted to see or has prototyped moves for, not Aeon who he’s said he didn’t know what he’d do with.

    • Mwisk

      12.5% spread around 4 characters… vs 87.5% of people voting for the rest of them. Yup, I fail to see how that math would work. People who want a male character need to focus their votes on 1 character, cuz they’re clearly the minority. Nothing rigged, it was made not to (single link votes for people who donated only). Just let it go and try to get a different outcome in the next voting.

      • Petran79

        Probably less and less people voted each round, seeing their favorite character eliminated. More so in the last round. I voted Minette in every round and at least one male character and only she made it this far. Or else I might not have bothered about the votes.
        But those that voted more male characters would surely have every right to be dissapointed.The last round I didnt vote any male character because I thought for sure that Stanley would make it to the top 4

    • ReddChief78

      Everybody know what the deal was from the beginning its a DONATION you dont donate then ask for it back and as long as all characters are released they did there part wanting your money back because a certain character didnt get in you are scum a real low life

    • Snow Loss

      “I knew it was going to be voting based and I donated anyway and now that the voting didn’t go my way I want my money back.”

      Would you like to threaten to succeed or maybe call for a dozen recounts too?
      Stop being butthurt. I hate Minette too, but there’s still a poll 2.

    • Areksu Hideki

      You realize Minette’s had a fairly popular askminette tumblr since the game’s release? That she’s had piles of questions about getting her as a dlc character long before labzero was even thinking about kickstarter? That her mechanic tips/levels/etc is a very popular idea since Frank West showed up?

      But no, you’re right, if people don’t agree with you it’s probably rigged.

    • Kaneco

      It’s not just people from the FGC voting…there’s more than just that!

      It’s just the Majority of the people voting for the characters they want in…whether they’re fighting game fans, casuals, bronnies, lolis, pedophiles, murderers, priests, non-gamers, etc….the list goes on, but it does show what the MAJORITY of the voters want these characters.

      Mike Z. is not out to piss off people, he’s out to cater to what the MAJORITY voted for…no matter how some, or even himself, dislike these characters…because those people, who dislike these characters, are the MINORITY.

      He doesn’t even want Aeon in, but look how far Aeon has gotten thus far. xD

  • CompetentFGC

    If they get chargeback’d, they deserve it. They screwed over 360 players for a lot more than 700k.

    • ExHaseo

      How are 360 players being screwed over?

      • CompetentFGC

        We bought the game on the pretense that more characters would be added and that we would get patches. None of these happened, and we are not going to be getting the patch. I’ve asked Mike Z directly many times for a refund. He has ignored me every time. He is an irresponsible coward.

        • Mwisk

          You were screwed the moment you choose to support a console made by a company that actually hinders gaming development due to poor decision making. Lab Zero wasn’t the only company screwed by MS and the patch that was supposed to be out a long time ago on your console wasn’t because MS wasn’t prepared or supportive and screwed them over many time along with other developers too. While PS3 users at least have a company that granted full support to game titles when they need patches and updates and have a much direct process of approval and rules.

          And guess what, the patch IS coming for the 360, and so ARE the new characters and DLCs. Right now the PS3 users having been waiting a long time for the DLC colors that are ready and go to go on the PS3, but MS doesn’t allow LZ to put them before 360, and LZ is waiting to do it for everybody, so even consumers that have nothing to do with MS are being screwed by MS.

          So stop pointing fingers and jumping to conclusions if you don’t know the full scope of things.

          • CompetentFGC

            I really don’t care who screwed who. I got screwed here because I didn’t get a patch. I want my money back, got it? Why should I be penalized because LZ claims MS screwed them over? They should have KNOWN THE RULES BEFORE SUBMITTING A PATCH THAT WILL NEVER BE APPROVED. I WANT MY MONEY BACK, AND I HAVE FULL RIGHT TO IT. I was LIED to, you fanboys. I don’t care if you think I should have supported SG regardless of their promises. I BOUGHT A PRODUCT BASED ON FALSE PRETENSES STATED BY THE DESIGNERS. FALSE ADVERTISING. I AM OWED MY MONEY BACK. SIMPLE LOGIC, KIDS.

          • Where was any of this promised to you?

          • Psycho Power J

            The $15 is for the game. Simple logic kiddo. Anything else is extra.

          • OrehRatiug

            He has been working on the patch, Microsoft keeps declining, are you retarded or retarded? Regardless the patch isn’t listed anywhere on the XBLA listing so no false advertising you fucking twit.

        • ExHaseo

          Um, the reason that there are no patches, is because of Microsoft’s policies. The patch was too big, and LabZero didn’t have the money to pay for it to be released. It has nothing to do with LabZero or MikeZ trying to screw anyone over. Their studio was cut from EA and they had to make an entirely new studio in order to continue working on the game. Even then, they had to start the Indiegogo campaign in order to get the money to continue working on the game.
          I’d like to reiterate that this has nothing to do with LabZero or Mike Z.
          Just because you bought it on 360, and Microsoft’s free patch size limits are small, doesn’t mean they owe you anything.
          Besides, it was only $15. That’s not even a huge deal, especially to support an indie made fighting game. Even if you make minimum wage, you only had to work about 2 hours to buy the game. I can guarantee you that you played it for more than two hours, so you got your moneys worth.
          I bought it on 360 too, and while I was disappointed 360 didn’t get the patch, I understood why. Now, I’m getting it on PC, since I helped fund Squiggly. So, three for one, I helped them out, I’m getting the new characters, and I’m getting to play it fully updated. All without the butthurt.

          • SpongeJordan123

            I’m in, quite literally, the exact same situation. I AM bummed that I can’t play it on 360 since I only have a 360 stick, but I also hate consoles and typically stick to PC gaming anyways.There were WAY more birds compared to my lone stone in this situation.

        • Michael Zaimont

          Let’s assume you really feel that Skullgirls wasn’t worth your *$15*, and that you actually believe you won’t get the patch I spent 65 more hours on last week or any of the FREE DLC we’re currently working on that the internet paid for. With that as a starting point…

          If you want a refund for your purchase you ask MS, not us. You bought it from them. Asking us is like asking EA for a refund for an EA game you bought at Wal-Mart – it doesn’t work that way. And even if you were to ask EA and somehow consider that reasonable, that would be equivalent to asking Autumn, not Lab Zero.

          tl;dr LabZero didn’t even get the money from your sale, so if you want it back you have to ask the company that has it. (^.^)

          Asking for a refund on a digital thing is dicey, too. You’d have to relinquish your right to own it, which would mean you’d have to somehow prove you didn’t keep a copy on an offline medium like a USB drive. But that’s a separate topic.

          [edit] Asking on SRK isn’t asking directly; but I have now responded to you. Irresponsible coward, out.

    Hope the Stanley haters are happy now. You’re getting Minette instead.

      Really? Hmmm… well have fun playing with one of his sperm as your new character…

      See? Much more effective and condescending. You gotta work on your “AHA in ya face” exclamations and get creative lol

      (btw this was NOT sarcasm pointed to you. I actually agree with the statement but thought it a little boring.)

  • Mwisk

    Two of my pics are there. I’m voting for Annie! Because she’s Sol Badguy and that’s super awesome!

    Also her playstyle and gameplan looks like it will fit my personal playstyle. Fast airdashes, strong normals and good pressure. And inspirations from GG are never a bad thing. I’m also curious how will her Parasite Bunny Sagan will be implemented in her moves.

    Let’s go! Star Flame! Stardust Viper! Hilarious interactions with Parasoul! And random MGS references please!

    GO TEAM ANNIE!

  • Guest

    wow this vote fucking sucks, there were sooo many cool characters and you idiots vote for the stupid little girls. There is no way Lab Zero would’ve added them if they were choosing the characters, because they actually have brains. Well hopefully at least Eliza or Aeon win but with the way things have been going, im expecting Annie+Minette to win both votes and SG will stay dead due to the cast having no wide appeal.

    • Michał Kryłowicz

      Lol Annie is one of the most fleshed out characters that weren’t in the game with backstory, personality and playstyle, so I’m sorry but she would be in the game pretty fast anyway.

    • GO4PRO

      Just vote Eliza, man. It’s the next best thing. Keep da lolis out

    • SonOfTheNorthe

      I don’t disagree with you, you’re just an asshole about it.

  • AriesWarlock

    Eliza.

  • Vector_C

    I was never interested in any of these 4 since the start of this based on the playstyle described. I just lost my interest.

    • Christopher Wrightson

      Honestly… that’s EXACTLY how I feel at this point. Don’t wish bad on anyone for the results nor am I furious or feeling cheated or anything really. And that’s just it… I no longer feel anything towards the DLC whatsoever anymore. Yeah there’s another round of voting and yes I will participate as I’ve come this far but seeing the first results and seeing the flow of thinking the MAJORITY who are REALLY in charge are leaning towards… interest = dead.

      Don’t get me wrong, the game is still great and will continue to be so but I unfort am one with the full adult responsibilities so have very limited extra time to spend on my training so the games that I choose have to be one’s I find fun and are tourney heavy as constant competition is half of my fun. Unfort SG isn’t that high anymore on that list (not because of itself but its reception in the tourney FGC) and this DLC was possibly going to kickstart my enthusiasm but now…

      Gravitating towards injustice. honestly..

  • Martin Mikalsen

    I can pretty mutch taste the tension. I guess Lab Zero simply had too many cool character designs. I’m both looking forward too and dreding the result. Anyway, it sure is exciting.

  • Drago Umeharevich

    ..and people will wonder why this game won’t have a tournament scene, LOL
    another game ruined by MOE-ass aesthetiques..

  • They said Aeon will play similar to Omega Tom Hanks. I’m just going to leave this here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NI1rKLQ7mxs

  • Richard Johnson

    STANLEY NOOOOO

  • Snow Loss

    Aaaaand Minette is still alive. Set sail for fail.
    At least Eliza’s still in and Annie’s more appealing now that they’ve finally subscribed to a hard space theme for her attacks and having her be a hardass throughout as opposed to just a cute little girl doing “brutal things”. That aside, the space focus for her could lead to some interesting gameplay I suppose.

  • Leonardo Gomes

    LOL @ all the Minette hate.
    I really think she’ll be one of the two. I hope the other one is Annie.

    • Areksu Hideki

      I’m very curious to see an american studio known for a certain amount of grimdark character design could pull off with someone like Minette. It’d be a good challenge for them

  • KubikiriTurkojin

    nothing but crappy characters left, and eliza. i think panzerfaust was one of the few good designs, but in a game littered with shitty designs it doesnt say much.

    not hating on skullgirls, but the artworks/design and character designs are some of the worst ive ever seen. probably art of fighting bad, almost as bad as mk.

    at least it isnt complete shit like superhero designs, tight gay suit, change color position, maybe add cape or mask, done. what a fucking fagtastic design method. these designers sure are tallented, not.

    • you’re really going all out, aren’t ya

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      “not hating on skullgirls”

      Lol, right.

      • KubikiriTurkojin

        thats not hating, sf4 has the worst art direction so far out of maybe any sf game to date, cept for sf1 that is. and lets be honest, the sf4 characters are almost al ass. all the new sf4 characters suck in design, cept for juri who looks somewhat cool.

        skullgirls is basically a game with almost sf4 bad shittier artdirection with sf4 bad character designs to boot. this does not mean im hating on the game. just cause it looks like shit doesn’t mean it plays like shit. i never said it was a mk/neatherrealm game, lol.

        • It’s okay, you’ve already been found out, there’s no need to continue fighting a losing battle.

          • KubikiriTurkojin

            did you feel neglected i didnt respond to you? here you go.

            if you think the art direction in sf4 or skullgirls looks good, you aint even worth responding to, see this response as a treat.

          • The art direction in SFIV is pretty terrible, even worse in SFxT.

            The art direction in Skullgirls is 50/50.

            It’s just silly that you had to make these statements using words like “fagtastic.” What are you, eight?

        • TheAverageGuyTAG

          5/10

          Mediocre troll, has potential

          Suggested improvements: Actually attempt to point out potential bad things and exaggerate their badness, try to go more indepth as to what makes other game bad and then use that to prove that initial game is bad without actually having to say it’s bad

  • Areksu Hideki

    Who knew? It looks like when push comes to shove people vote on the overall character package, not just whether the design would look rad on a trapper keeper or t-shirt.

    • Johnny Donuts

      the people voting who actually care about gameplay are a very small minority.

  • Areksu Hideki

    You Are Already Fed

    http://askminette.tumblr.com/

  • Wait, all four are…girls…in Skullgirls!? In all seriousness though I was looking forward to trying out a new interesting male character. Sucks because I know this will only alienate potential players like myself even more.

    • Areksu Hideki

      Not excited for Big Band?

      Also: I suspect the people who signed up for a game named “Skullgirls” are pretty okay with girls in their fighting game rosters c_c

      • I suppose, but I see potential in this game as being more than just another waifu fighter. Guess I shouldn’t try to morph into something it’s not though. Yeah they could do more dlc characters polls, but most likely it would end up being whichever of the 3 that don’t make it in this time around.

    • datagram

      …is there something wrong with female characters?
      I mean, I’m disappoint in the characters that got eliminated too, but because their playstyles were interesting, not because they were male.

  • Evan Little

    Wow where did all the awesome guys go..? I am disappointed Skullgirls community.

    • Haze Shouhda

      There were no awesome guys. Otherwise I would have voted for one, myself. The only coolest one was brain drain, and he’s a badguy. Beowulf had a REALLY weak story and didn’t appeal to me.

      • Drago Umeharevich

        story?? who gives a s**** about story?
        we just didn’t want to stare at anime little girls all the time like the wankers who voted all females.

        Eliza + any male character would’ve been far more balanced as winning characters. at this point i won’t be surprised if Eliza doesn’t make it since she’s now kawaii enough.

        • Haze Shouhda

          From the sounds of it, you really shouldn’t be playing skullgirls if an almost all cute female cast are the fighters. There are other fighters out there my friend.

      • datagram

        Not even Isaac? C’mon man…
        I will agree that Beowulf’s story kinda seems out of place in the universe

  • O. G. King Haggard

    If it ends up being anyone but Eliza, then Skullgirls fans are just shitty anime fighters who like little girls.

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      Aeon?

  • Gethoff Mahfacebuk

    NO MEN. Not a single male character ever had a chance. Not even Isaac.

    Good job nerds, go fap to some tentacle porn.

  • Donald Koser

    Well I think of it this way, the characters you want may not be in this game, but they may be in the next. I believe they said they were going to save these character designs for their next game. Still sad to see Panzerfaust and Isaac not get picked. It just means the next game will be better. Plus, Big Band is one lucky sob. Lady’s everywhere for him! I dub him the pimp of Skullgirls.

    • windsagio

      next game is a pretty amazingly long long shot. Hell I’d worry about the ones that win actually getting done well before talking about things like a sequel or even a windows version.

      • Donald Koser

        Well, there is still one more character to pick so there is still hope. Although you’re probably right, chances of them making another game are pretty slim. Especially since they had to resort to asking for money. Unless they somehow pair up with another big studio to fund them, this may be the last thing they do cause the money they are making from this isn’t exactly great.

        • datagram

          Autumn Games has already said that they’re willing to fund Skullgirls 2 once they’ve resolved their legal issues.

          Even if that doesn’t work out, I’m sure they could find another publisher. I mean, they were able to find a publisher for the PC version.

          • Donald Koser

            Huh. That’s something I didn’t know. Well hell, good on Autumn games if they do fund it. You do make a really good point. If they could find a PC publisher, they definitely could find someone else to fund them.

  • MMO_JOE

    dang all the guys lost in the voting. smh you have to have a balance between male and female characters or you become a obscure pedogame. Aka Arcania heart. Not trolling just being real.

    • datagram

      The fact that we expect all-girl fighters to automatically have a limited appeal says pretty bad things about the fgc, and the gaming community in general. You are not “just being real,” you are implicitly supporting sexism by treating it as an accepted norm. I agree that there needs to be balance and variety in character designs in a game, but making the cast all female doesn’t prevent that.

      Arcana Heart actually has quite varied and unique character designs.
      I think it’s really DOA that gives all-female fighters a bad rap…

      • MMO_JOE

        But hows does that say bad things about the fighting game community? We want to be praised and accepted for are skills in a certain games and not automatically ridiculed and judged. So your telling me if a small crowd of random people circled around a group of “Grown Men” playing skull girls and all they see is all little girl female characters and characters with skimpy skirts and big boobs they wouldn’t automatically assume they were some creeps. Come on man this is why this game turns off so many potential players nobody wants to put in that awkward situation where someone asks why are you playing a game with all little girls and no matter what you say they automatically have a assumption about you as a person.

        • datagram

          You know, it wasn’t too long ago that there was a stigma attached to “Grown Men” playing videogames at all.

          How are we supposed to get people to take us gamers seriously if we’re afraid to play a game because it has “too much sex appeal.” You think film enthusiasts worry about being called creeps because some of the films they watch have nudity?

  • Hiya_tiger

    Moe blobs vs two good quality looking characters.

    Vote Eliza & Aeon.

    • datagram

      I’d consider Aeon more of a moe blob than Annie.

  • Conway Obleman

    can’t I just have all 4? 🙁

    but I’ll go with Eliza

  • SolsticeOfGravity

    I still think Annie is the best choice here. She has an indirect influence on the cast and is already a veteran aware of the situation involving the Skull Heart. Her play style sounds great and there is nothing wrong with her design.

    • datagram

      The intro lines for Parasoul vs. Annie would be hilarious.

      I think Annie’s a solid choice, but I think I’m leaning more towards Eliza since her design is a little more ambitious. Those two are the only good options here though, imo.

      • SolsticeOfGravity

        Honestly I find her design to be lackluster. I feel she is more of a cartoonized rejected Mortal Kombat character. That is saying a lot since I was excited to see Eliza’s final design, then disappointed when I finally got to see it.

        • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

          Go back to your shitty anime.

  • Haze Shouhda

    Go Minette! Come on little fishy!

  • Will Unpronounceable

    im not going to tell you who to vote for (eliza cough cough ). but i will tell you who not to vote for…why? just why? why vote for annie? i dont understand the appeal of her design. if someone can convey to me in a rational and intelligent manner why her design is “good” beyond just the usual obvious preference then i’ll feel a little better. but almost all the other designs are themed well and are highly conceptual.

    eliza= Egyptian diva, hubrecht= affectionate circus strong man. aeon=time goddess. regina=animal tamer. but annie. what the fuck is up with her!? a woman trapped in little girls body with a sword that has a television show? and she has stars sprawled over her design like its herpe sores.

    • Know_the_ledge

      because she’s like Baby Herman from Roger Rabbit except more badass. And her stuffed bunny looks like it has rabies. That’s pretty cool.

      • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

        “INTELLIGENT!”

    • Austin Davoren

      She’s Homura with a Sword.

      • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

        He said “intelligent!”

    • datagram

      She’s this old jaded hardass that’s forced to dress like a kids cartoon character and watch her language. I think it’s a clever character design.

      It’s like if Ragna the Bloodedge were forced to use Platinum’s particle effects and sound effects.

      • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

        He said “intelligent!”

        • datagram

          …as if your comment was any less full of opinionated analogies.

          Is it the cool thing now to shit on everyone else’s comments before making your own?

    • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

      I thought, judging from her name, and looking at her, that she was gonna be an orphan out for revenge ala Kill Bill, as her name is “Annie” (implied “Orphan Annie), and she looks derived from Japanese action movies, and manga. Think Matilda from “The Professional,” and Hit-Girl from “Kick-Ass.” But, nah, she’s just gonna be like that one minor villain from “Batman: The Animated Series.” Bleah.

  • Joseph King

    None of the dudes made it through 🙁

  • d3v

    So, which one of these is a zoning/keepaway character’?

    • Kloakenstein

      Well to answer your question Eliza was detailed to have half screen attacks.

  • Otaku Jeffrey

    I’m going to vote Annie. She’s cute. <3

    • Johnny Donuts

      she’s ugly

      • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

        She’s useless.

  • Thank fuck that stupid shark is gone. However, Annie and Minette have no right to be here, either.

    • Petran79

      everything turned out so unpredictable but those two wont make it to #1.
      But no matter the character, everything depends on the developers. I dont mind the design really, as long as they turn out interesting gameplay wise.

  • Johnathon Otero

    Eliza and Big Band Team all dayyyyyyy. In a gaem that looks as cool as skullgirls, Eliza is just clearly the coolest looking character out of the four. Also that’s my girlfriend’s name and I love her very very much so it’d niiice to play as her in the game :3

  • Mike Jones

    My main pick Feng is gone My second pick Isaac is gone. Eliza is my third place pick that still remains. How ccould this happen. Please don`t fail me aswell Eliza T_T

  • heatEXTEND

    No, Panzerfaust ? Back to GG I guess ;_;

    • Play both.

    • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

      Yes, back to GG with you, ya go. This game ain’t for you. Or play Marvel, where you get to play a big robot.

  • Christopher Wrightson

    idk why.. maybe the color scheme or the height of the characters… idk… All I know is that for SOME reason in my head I am having a hard time making myself look at Eliza and seeing her as different from Mrs Fortune.

    NOW HEAR ME OUT!!! I know she is NOT at ALL like her and they are completely separate characters same as 4 and 5 are two seperate numbers. But I think because of the art style + color scheme, subconsciously my brain keeps swapping them interchangeably despite their stark differences; like during quick glances.

    Is anyone else feeling this way?

  • samirerre

    *sees the candidates* .THATS RIGHT all the characters should be femals so we could fap on them.WHAIT WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS AINT A HENTAI!1! ………..*looks at those pictures again*……yo people here are f*cked up.(j/k)

  • Johnny Donuts

    i really don’t understand the annie votes. Nothing at all interesting about her. She isnt even cute. Feng is much cuter. SG community has such horrible taste…

    • Creepy Chris

      “People don’t like what I like, so that means they have horrible taste.”

      Classy, fella.

      • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

        Shut the fuck up with this stale, old, holier-than-thou smug faggotry shit. It’s fun. It’s like arguing sports teams. There’s sport in battling. Man up, and stop being a pussy who thinks he’s above it all for misplaced notions.

        • Creepy Chris

          So…arguing about mere taste, which is ENTIRELY subjective, is fun for you? I’m sorry, but claiming to have superior taste is simply juvenile to me. I refuse to tolerate such behavior.

    • Snow Loss

      Space powers.
      IE: Black holes, comet storms, solar flares, super novas, etc.

    • datagram

      “Nothing at all interesting about her.”
      Really? What are you basing this on? I think her backstory and personality are pretty unique. And she’s supposed to play similarlly to Sol Badguy, who’s apparently interesting enough to be the flagship character or GG. Even if her mechanics aren’t that innovative, I still appreciate that they’re fairly well defined.

      I do agree that Feng would probably be more interesting to play than Annie, but she’s definitely not the worst option in this top 4

  • Cat Astrophy

    No Annie. We already have a Miss Fortune.

    • Snow Loss

      What does that have to do with anything?

      • Cat Astrophy

        Dat League of Legends. Starting to get a bit more than coincidental.

        • Know_the_ledge

          Can you elaborate more? I don’t play league of legends.

          • datagram

            Apparently LoL has a character who is also named Miss Fortune, though from what I’ve seen the similarities end there.

  • Hays Kronke

    I wonder if the results will be similar for the next vote….
    Hope Brain Drain makes it next time!

    • Snow Loss

      BD would be great. Faust would be pretty nice too in my book.

  • Know_the_ledge

    Squigly, Big Band…If Eliza wins, I vote they change the title from Skullgirls to Dreamgirls.

  • Why in god’s name is Minette in top 4? How many of you weirdos wants a character thats inspired by Roll?

    • Mash Harder

      Lots of us.

    • windsagio

      well, consider your audience 😛

  • Kloakenstein

    Sitting this vote out rofl…

  • SonOfTheNorthe

    God, these comments are painful to read.
    That said, I’m quite the fan of Black Delilah, Brain Drain, Issac, Panzerfaust, Venus, and Samson. So as long as any of those win, I’m good.

  • Milton O’Bannon

    These comments really are painful. Is it too much to respect others choices that are different from your own? (I voted Annie btw, come at me)

    • datagram

      Not really.
      …unless that choice is Minette.

    • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

      Even through my detachment from this game, and lack of enthusiasm for it, I am very interested in following these polls, and seeing that the best character designs get in. So, no, I’m sorry, when the game is on the line, and there’s so many terrible designs, then I am not going to be respecting choices here.

      (Annie’s good ^)

  • Roxy

    Omega Tom Hanks is one my favorite characters ever second to Isabeau. That is why my vote firmly goes to Aeon.

  • Melting Sky

    It definitely looks like Eliza is the most Skull Girl of the remaining roster. An immortal Egyptian Godess with weaponized blood and skeleton, she may not be Panzerfaust or Beowolf but she definitely still sounds like she can kick some ass. Minnette just doesn’t look at all like an ass kicker. Aeon would be neat but she is final boss material.

  • $19298411

    Wow these characters look boring. SG community failed hard on this. #IncomingDownvotes #YouKnowI’mRightThough.

  • Austin Davoren

    Man, I wish even half of the people posting on this page would come out and play Skullgirls

  • I_Got_The_Moves_Like_Jaguar

    Big Band? More liek, “BIG BLAND,” AMIRITE?!

  • Daniel Rodriguez

    So Aeon 100,0000,000%

  • Lornaroseus

    I hope there will be a skullgirls 2 in the future and have the cast that didn’t make it in the vote off’s :3

  • Mr. Bear

    Eliza
