This is a sub-page of Skullgirls.

And you were just a scroll away from being fired too...
Oh dear, I do believe I have the vapors.
This page contains content that is not safe for work or other locations with the potential for personal embarrassment.
Such as: Butt grabbing and a dead guy.

This page contains all the unused graphics from Skullgirls.

Arcade Interrupt Graphics

Skullgirls arcade interrupt.png
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

An alternate spelling of Squigly's name meant to be used in the character selection screen.

Early HUD Icons

Early Final
Skullgirls RoboFortune EarlyMugshot.png Skullgirls RoboFortune FinalMugshot.png

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.

Fukua

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.

Skullgirls Fukua Super old.png
Her unused character portrait was reused for her Blockbuster reel image until the Eliza update where it was updated with her modern appearance.

Valentine

Valentine 00 neutral-ESRB.png
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

Skullgirls BW Dahlia.png
A black and white version of Black Dahlia's Story Mode portrait.

Temporary Beowulf Portraits

Located amongst Beowulf's cutscene portraits are three placeholders.

Beowulf's Chair

Original Season Pass 1 Update
Skullgirls Filia sitting on Beowulf's chair.png Skullgirls-Filia01 beowulf 1p.png

For some reason, there's a graphic of Filia sitting on The Hurting that's found in the grabbing file. In Season Pass 1 update, the image has now colorized in Sepia-Tone.

Annie Frames

Skullgirls Annie unused hitsun frame.png
A frame of Annie and Sagan making an anime-esque strained face. This can be found in the hitstun folder.

Skullgirls Annie unfinished tag out frame.png
An unfinished frame of Annie's tag out animation.

Mrs. Victoria

Skullgirls Rough MrsVictoria.png
A rough placeholder image for Mrs. Victoria can be found alongside the graphics for the Class Notes stage. The final game uses an animated version instead.

Marie and Umbrella Assets

Marie

Nerf Marie!
Skullgirls Marie Eyes.png
Skullgirls data charcoin marie glow01.pngSkullgirls charselect pedestal name marie01.pngSkullgirls charselect portrait name marie01.png
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

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. Nonetheless, remnants of her still exist in the game - and she still may be added at a future date due to her alleged importance in Parasoul's story line.

Skullgirls Data charcoin umbrella glow01.png Skullgirls Charselect pedestal name umbrella01.png
Umbrella's name and character "chip" for the character select screen.

I am a shadow...the true self!
Umbrella also has a shadowed portrait for Story Mode, which goes unused. In regular gameplay, the shadowed portraits are used in Story Mode when Double imitates the player character.

Joke Story Mode Images
