First Round of Voting for Second Skullgirls DLC Character Concludes – Beowulf, Feng, Stanley Survive; Leduc, Hubrecht, Yu-Wan Eliminated

After adhering to a shorter voting period for the second Skullgirls DLC character, the Lab Zero team recently released information regarding who made it out of the first stage. Unlike the previous voting process, which allowed choosing fewer and fewer characters as the campaign whittled down the candidates, this time around fans were asked to rank every character from most to least popular in order to give a clearer look at how they stack up to each other.

This first round has cut the stable of characters from thirty to twenty. They are, in alphabetical order: Aeon, Annie, Beatrix, Beowulf, B. Dahlia, Brain Drain, D. Violet, Feng, Ileum, Isaac, Marie, Minette, Molly, Panzerfaust, Roxie, Scythana, Stanley, Taliesin, Umbrella, and Venus.

While the surviving cast wasn’t ranked, we’re now able to keep a running tally of the eliminated fighters and their overall placings.

21. Mrs. Victoria
22. Leduc
23. Adam
24. Hubrecht
25. Andy
26. Hive
27. Ottomo
28. Samson
29. Yu-Wan
30. Regina

So, what do you think? One interesting thing to note is that all the characters that made it through the first round last time have done so again, with five new characters (Beatrix, D. Violet, Ileum, Roxie, Taliesin) thrown into the mix. Will we see the voting play out similarly this time around, or will their presence be enough to shake things up a bit? In any case, be sure to keep campaigning for your favorites!

    i didn’t even know this was happening -_-

  • Gene Q.

    James Stanley Chen

  • Gene Q.

    They should have put a character portrait next to the names when voting.

    • Everybody participating in this likely already knows every character.

      • Louis Lam

        It’d still make it better.

      • Gene Q.

        Just in case they dont.

    • I can’t disagree.

  • SpongeJordan123

    I’m going to ACEN next weekend with a Stanley cosplay, MUST DRUM UP SUPPORT!

  • Trollolo You

    I was personally mostly looking forward to Brain Drain. Too bad no one seems to be interested in him.

    • He made it to round 2.

      • Abelardo Rodriguez

        Brain Drain is a woman

        • Are you trolling me? Because if so, haha, good one. If not, I am sufficiently mind blown.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            Nope, everyone in the game is a trap.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            You mean if I trip them, they explode?

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            If having a penis does that, then yes.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            What if their penis is a land mine?

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            Then that would be one hell of an uncomfortable errection.

          • TheAverageGuyTAG

            That’s one load I wouldn’t want to see blow.

          • SolsticeOfGravity

            And that is how Double was born.

  • Andy Les Pahl

    Go Aeon, Panzer, Molly, and Isaac

  • k.b.a.

    Idiots. No Adam? Regina? Victoria?

    • CptPokerface

      No disrespect but I feel like Adam gets overshadowed by a large portion of the cast, in terms of aesthetics AND gameplay style.

      • TheAverageGuyTAG

        I can see aesthetics, but Adam was one of my top choices due to gameplay description.

        • CptPokerface

          Understandable. His playstyle is completely unique and fresh, but at the same time it seems to be a bit..convoluted. I don’t really think most people can fully understand the concept of a group character in a fighting game without an in depth demo or prototype for him. Shouts out to Lab Zero for the fresh ideas, though, can’t call Adam a knock off by any means.

  • Mwisk

    Support D.Violet, put her in your Top-10! Force Crouch mixups, Mid-range tools, Whip (KOF) inspired, voiced by an actual dominatrix? She’s all kinds of win! xD

  • Go Panzerfaust!!

  • Adeel Siddiqui

    GO BEOWULF!!!

  • Exy

    Those are some very oddly specific names that were cherry picked for this article’s title. HMMMMMMM.

    • Nap1400

      As long as Feng is getting support I couldn’t care less about bias.

      • SolsticeOfGravity

        I’m fine with Feng or Annie. But yes, lots of Feng support.

    • I liked the biased support.

    • windsagio

      oh c’mon, if it werent’ for this Skullgirls would get about 1/10th of the frontpage articles

      • Guest

        What does this have to do with the comment you’re replying to?

        • windsagio

          To rephrase, ‘you can’t benefit from biased reporting and then complain about biased reporting’.

          Although looking at the responses below, people seem to revel in it, as long as it’s biased in their direction…

          At least they’re not hypocrites ><

  • Beb0p

    The one with the most interesting story line would be the top row second from the right.

    The most interesting looking one is bottom row second from the left.

    Something I would vote for would be top row fourth from the right.

    Top row first from the right probably has a high chance of winning.

    People who pick Beowolf do so just because of the name, that chair is lame as hell. Brain Drain could’ve had a much better looking head.

    I would be most surprised if any of the following wins:

    Bottom third from the right.
    Top third from the left.
    Top fifth from the left.
    Top third from the right.
    Bottom fourth from the right.
    Bottom fourth from the left.

    • RiverboatGrambler

      what?

      • windsagio

        all I got was that the first consideration was ‘most interesting storyline’

  • Awsumpossum12345

    And I would do ANNNNNNYTHING FOOOOOR LOVE.
    YES I WOULD DO ANNNNNNNYTHING FOOOR LOVE.

    • GCBill

      But I WOONNN’T DOOO THAAAT!

      • Louis Lam

        OR THAT!

      • Jet_Set_Dizzy

        I’d totally do that.

  • Zonder88

    as long as a male character wins Im happy.

  • Johnathon Otero

    B Dhalia or Beowulf. Don’t really care either way since Eliza is already good to go <3

  • Art Salmons

    Bold prediction for next round: 7 lolis and a shark

    • TheAverageGuyTAG

      That’s only 8 people.

  • heatEXTEND

    Panzer PLZ

  • Leonardo Gomes

    Damn, no Regina again! >(

  • Narcowski

    Cool, both of the characters I’m actually interested in (Venus and Ileum) survived this time.

  • $35897352

    ummm

  • evilmajikman

    All about D.Violet. Games need more whip style characters and D.Violet is legit voiced by a dominatrix.

  • SolsticeOfGravity

    Lets goooooo Annie and Feng~!

  • Jelani-Akin

    I really hope Feng makes it. Failing her, Minette.

    • SolsticeOfGravity

      Backing up that Feng support, not so much Minette.

  • Milton O’Bannon

    ANNIE

    • SolsticeOfGravity

      ^ This

  • ZenTzen

    Scythana lets go

  • C’mon people, vote for Beowulf.

    Or do you not want to see someone doing Stone Cold Stunners on Filia while jumping off the top of a chair?

  • Top 4 is gonna be the same top 3 from the other voting and 1 wild card. I don’t even know why its the same layout. The people that voted for Eliza are gonna split the votes into a crap load of proportions while the previous top 3 are gonna retain or gain more votes than before. They could have did this alot better.

    • Mash Harder

      It’s not the same “layout”.
      It is a completely different voting system.

  • danzo uchia

    VOTE FENG!!!!

  • interpunct

    VOTE VENUS OR PANZERFAUST! 😀

  • SonOfTheNorthe

    Why doesn’t anyone like Samson?
