  • Gaute Vist Grong

    Well, then we might just have the greatest FG character the world has ever seen.

    • TheBlackRabbit

      i dunno…. this makes me nervous

  • Gojira Twit

    The name was probably inspired by Bedemon. Assuming the romanization is correct.

    • d3v

      Might as well share some of this ish.

      • Tekknight

        Ah NOW I get it!

  • Rahavic

  • Peter Locke

    Oh my gosh i just realized who this is: It’s Porky from EarthBound in his Bed Mecha!!!

  • $19298411

    guess you can say this bed…..




  • SavingPrincess

    Bedman was originally a Mega Man 12 boss.

  • Quan Chi

    Whelp, maybe I won’t get this game :/

    • Justin Archer

      we won’t miss you

      • Quan Chi

        Apparently ya’ll won’t miss the game either considering the Guilty Gear Series is barely talked about here when the games come out 😛

        • Richard N

          It’s kinda hard to get excited for a sixth rerelease of a ten year old game.

          Xrd? Well, that’s a different story.

  • PikminExpert

    Well, it wouldn’t be the strangest character to come out of the Guilty Gear series, considering that we got Leopaldon in Isuka.

  • k.b.a.

    i hit my head

    • CapnWTF


      • Tekknight

        So close to hitting the “dat’s racist” button, but looking at the context…

  • Tonton Ramos

    dunununununununu BEDMAAAAAANNN!!!

  • H_Magnus

    Hopefully he’s related to Faust, from his Dr. Baldman days.

    • Steven Hunt

      That was BaldHEAD, mate.

  • Marth will be in Guilty Gear?

  • SolarShift

    We will learn he is Sol Bedguy.

    • heatEXTEND


    • Ninebreaker (HurtboxTV)

      You sir, I like the way you think. You’re gonna go places kid.

  • That name is badass

  • It’s pronounced “Bedmin”

    • d3v

      You sure? The katakana on Famitsu (ベッドマン) seems to say otherwise.

      • Shane Guidaboni

        That’s definitely beddoman.

      • No it’s Bedmin. Like Like Rodmin or Spidermin.

        • d3v

          Well excuuuuuse me for not getting the joke princess.

  • NyuBomber


  • Dandy J

    damn that is so gg

  • OrehRatiug

    Not sure how I feel about this, I’ll have to sleep on it.

  • OnDrawnWings

    I was just about ready to say that is easily the dumbest FG character concept ever, but then I saw the spikes on top of spikes, on top of spikes and I thought different.

  • Quan Chi

    Dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

  • Go2hell66

    Troll Character Confirmed

    • Yogsagath

      No that’s roboky, zappa, and faust.

  • Sol badass

    Not even surprised. He should fit right into the GG universe. Although, he does look like a skullgirls character. And on that note, I always thought GG and SG were somewhat relatable games

  • Dectilon

    Faust and Zappa will be delighted to have another goofball join the cast.

  • PJ

    Still 100x better than whatever capcom gives us for the new 5th character.

    • ReddChief78

      I guess that’s why SF is more popular and sells 100x better than GG lol nice try tho i wish GG did but nice try

      • Carlos Miguel Pacheco

        That call of duty dollar.

      • Yogsagath

        Does sales mean that it’s a better game? Cause if you live by that mentality than fighting games mean shit.

      • Ninebreaker (HurtboxTV)

        Sells more here? Yeah it does, but guess what? GG does better in the arcades than SF. What now?

        • Yogsagath

          And supplies more content fuck that Blazblue supples more content than SF ever did and it didn’t even have have the shit that Guilty Gear X reloaded had to offer.

          • Vas Gian

            dont go too far in one direction there little fella. there is no “best fighter” that kind of thing is subject to preference its completley subjective. some like sf some like gg no right or wrong awnsers here…..unless you like mortal kombat than fuck you.

          • Yogsagath

            I never said there was a best fighter I said Guilty gear and Blaz Blue had more to offer than Street Fighter 4.

    • Kaihedgie

      Why are you complaining about a character that has yet to be revealed? Or are you simply speaking out of bandwagon hate?

      Seriously, what in the heck does this have to do with either Capcom or Street Fighter?

      • Julian GameHead Irwin

        its the typical irrelevant capcom/SF pot shot people like to make to seem cool… nothing new here.

  • King9999

    If this was any other game, Bedman would stand out as being weird. But for GG, it’s par for the course.

    • Vas Gian

      thats what i love about GG is just a collection of blankas and dhalsims

  • pootnannies

    so he’s like in a coma or something but can control all that shit attached to his bed?

  • goatchumby

    Wheeee! Character design!

  • Collander Parham

    ALL HAIL BEDMAN. If there is no zappa I’m happy with this , but if zappa is still in super hype

    • Yogsagath

      Well you get your Zappa too. Sigh he has concept art and boy he looks like a Newsy.

  • Rory Grant

    Highway Star?

  • Kazzzem


  • What you know bout dat Craftmatic, tho??

  • Slade

    I can’t believe there’s people dissing this. What the hell is wrong with you, posers?

    One of Guilty Gear’s charms has ALWAYS been the bizarre and unlikely designs for characters. There’s a girl with a giant key that turns into a demon, a feminine boy that fights with a yo-yo and a teddy bear, a cursed man that fights with spirits, a frenzied cartoony doctor with a brown bag on his face… are you really fucking serious right now?

    In short, this is awesome. I’m so glad we still get bizarre characters after so long.

  • BulletToothTeddy

    Serious use of white drugs with this dev team!

  • James I’mthepappy Parson

    Gon’ put you to bed son!

  • It kinda looks like a Persona character .-.

    • MrJechgo

      Funny thing is that Hikaru Midorikawa voices Akihiko Sanada in both P3 and P4A XD

  • Dat Azure

    He looks like Chrona mixed with Medusa, and that “bed-thing” looks like Ragnarok (Soul Eater) to me.

    • Yogsagath

      Now you say that he also looks like Dr. Frankenstein too.

  • ウam ‏

    People who dont think this design is awesome seriously need to wake up.

    • CrazyMobius

      Was that intentional?

      • ウam ‏

        you bet it was~

  • WrathChild

    That fake arm still reminds me of Peacock. Regardless, he’ll fit in just fine.

    • PJ

      With all the guilty gear references in SG, GG could afford to use one I suppose 😉

  • Jerrod Branson

    The silhouette first, then picture update reminds me of Pokemon with commercial breaks. “Who’s that GG character? It’s Bedman! Zzzzzzz…

  • allytronic

    This is weird just for the sake of being weird.

    Weaboos, rejoice. I wonder who’s going to be the first to try a cosplay of this guy.

    • Guest

      Shut up ya damn Yankee!

  • Kaihedgie

    Try jumping into bed with him now, Relena :T

  • Kal El Cool J

    How much LSD did Ishiwatari do for this guy? Still more hype than USF4, though.

    • Ninebreaker (HurtboxTV)

      he’s evolved to the point where he doesn’t need LSD for such thoughts.

  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    Looks like a SG character to me. Name makes it worse. I don’t like it for GG, but it’s cute for like…SG..:/

    • Kaihedgie

      Must everything be compared to Skullgirls now? SG isn’t the first fighting game to have absurd fighting game character concepts.

      • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

        That wasn’t where I was going with my comment at all. It’s not just the “absurdity” of the character. The style of the render as well as other things just made me think “SG” as soon as I saw it.

        Believe me, when I see a crazy character design, I more often than not think of GG. This just isn’t one of those cases.

  • OnDrawnWings

    (I think GG is fine, btw…but…)

    Reasons I hate this character design so far:

    1) The bed ALREADY has legs. Why does it need moar legz. Work within the confines of your own dumb concept of haunted bed!

    2) Artist: “We need something to spruce up this already confusing hot mess–I know screws! Screws have + signs that look cool, almost symbolic of crosses–THEME Baby!”
    Art Director: “What’s with all of these giant, industrial screws? They are symbolic of ‘you’re screwed!’ Redo this character!” Artist: “Oooew, sorry. No time.”

    3) Artist: “We’ve got the themes of a mental patient / possessed guy, and the theme of a guy who looks like a girl with plastic hair–YEAH, oh yes, plastic hair bitches. And…And…this girl-guy wears a big damn pink arrow pointing to his glasses! F-yeah! Awesome. One word–metal. Studs. OK, that’s two words, but–Oh, did I mention the bed is a f-ing BISHOP!…MIND BLOWN, right?…AND…”

    Art Director: “Shuddup. This is a hot pile of mess. Make it a robot and move on.”

      I take it you’ve never seen a screw before in real life. Those + signs aren’t meant to be symbolic of crosses. I mean, I guess you could make that kind of connection if you wanted, but you also kind of throw away the idea of a Phillips head screwdriver.

      Then again, you seem like you’re 15 and just full of angst. Go back to writing Hunger Games/ Twilight/ Harry potter fanfiction or w/e it is you teenagers are into.

  • Pooh Hardy

    i take it bedman is single

  • NicolaAcoust

    Awesome concept! He will be the new A.B.A.

  • Vas Gian

    i like the bed. the person in the bed…..ehhhhhh. the one cahracter arc type the balzblue franchise has worked very hard to establish in context to the fighting game community is the “long hair anime pretty boy” character. i have a pretty intense aversion to anything resembling that particular trope. if it were like a old dude in the bed like in roujin z i would be behind it alot more. instead its….just another anime character….it still has that guilty gear flare to it though, and its a bold design so im down with it.

  • Vas Gian

    this is actually really growing on me already

  • $19298411

    I am betting that all the people hating on this character will flip-flop so fast when they see the character in action and say he’s awesome and amazing.
