Arcade Interrupt Graphics
Assets made for the Japanese arcade version of Skullgirls, where single-player gameplay is interrupted if player two joins mid-match. Since this situation cannot occur in the Windows release, these assets go unused.
Unused Character Selection Graphics
Early HUD Icons
Early HUD mugshots for Eliza, Beowulf, and Robo-Fortune can be found alongside the graphics for the HUD. Eliza's pose is the same as her neutral Story Mode portrait which was used in several pieces of placeholder art during her development, while Beowulf is in his idle pose. Robo-Fortune's is almost identical to her final one, albeit low quality and looking off to the side. It is unknown why they exist within the game.
Character graphics exist for Fukua, a palette-swapped version of Filia with a very curious origin.
A version of Fukua was eventually made a playable character in the April 1st 2014 update.
Valentine's "normal" cutscene portrait has an unused variant with less revealing clothing. Her outfit also has a red cross, which could be this design was made very early before the censorship of that particular part.
B&W Black Dahlia
Temporary Beowulf Portraits
In the Digital Art Compendium, there are several sketches of characters lounging on Beowulf's chair, The Hurting, that can be found in either the "grabmode" folder in Beowulf's frame dump, or the "Sketches" folder in Beowulf's Character Art categories respectively.
|Original||Season Pass 1 (Updated during Annie's beta phase)||Season Pass 1 (Updated during Annie's Full Release)|
Originally, the image of Filia sitting was left uncolored. In the Season Pass 1 update during the open beta for Annie, the image was updated to be colored in Sepia-Tone, with a bit of shading. Another sketch of Filia sitting can be found in Beowulf's Character Art folder, but it is mostly similar to the original sketch. The only difference is that The Hurting is colored, and Samson's body is more transparent.
Peacock is slouching, watching something on an unplugged TV with her buddies Avery and George.
Parasoul is doing a royal perch.
Ms. Fortune quietly rests on The Hurting.
Painwheel is struggling to sit on The Hurting because the Buer Drive is in the way. At least she's trying her best.
Valentine is sitting on The Hurting while being... restrained?
Double is turned into a chair... while letting a chair sit on top of her.
Eliza sits on a chair in a way that's akin to an Egyptian hieroglyph.
Marie and Umbrella Assets
Marie, the final boss, has graphics for the character select screen. No corresponding character select portrait or face icon exist. It was likely she was intended to have been included as a playable character. Marie was later included as a potential candidate in the DLC voting campaign during the 2013 Indiegogo Fundraiser, but lost to Eliza and Beowulf. An eye-level image intended for the HUD when using a team is also present.
Marie has an image intended for the Blockbuster reel that appears when a character activates their Blockbuster. Even though she does gain meter, she has no Blockbusters defined so this image is never seen.
Umbrella, Parasoul's kid sister, was supposed to be included but was dropped early in development in lieu of Valentine and Double (Squigly suffered a similar fate, only to be reintroduced as DLC later on regardless). Umbrella also did not survive the DLC voting campaign during the 2013 Indiegogo fundraiser. She was announced as a DLC character in 2021 as part of the first season pass, and released in 2022.
