Skullgirls/Unused Text

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to: navigation, search
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: Obvious foul language in developer's rant.

This page contains all the unused text from Skullgirls.

Reverge Package credit

Reverge Package File 1.1

Found at the beginning of the game's .gfs files is this string of text.

Unused Story Mode Endings

The Story Mode was originally intended to have alternate endings after defeating Marie, which were cut due to technical limitations. One of the possible paths for each of the characters (besides Double) was turned into their ending in the final game. No accompanying artwork for the alternate endings is known to exist. Double is the only character made before the Reverge breakup who does not have an unused alternate ending.

Filia

Choice A: "I know enough about myself..."
Choice B: "I want to remember everything..."
Samson's been trying to hide something from me. Maybe to protect me, maybe to manipulate me... I need to know.
I lost my memories when Samson attached himself to me... so I should get them back when he comes off, right?
...Skull Heart!
I wish for...

No, Filia!
Don't! You asked me to...!

...my memory to return!

An interesting choice.
Neither your memories nor you death will allow you to escape your fate.
The fate that befalls all who misuse my power...
...A selfish choice.

Cerebella

Choice A: “I need to finish my mission...”
Choice B: “Can it really...?”
...Can it really make him love me?
I guess there's only one way to find out.
Skull Heart, I wish for Vitale to love me and only me... forever!

...Foolish girl.
Return to him to see what you have wrought.

Vitale!
I'm back!

...CEREBELLA!

What... what are you doing, Vitale!?

...ONLY YOU.
ONLY YOU, CEREBELLA.

He... murdered them all!
He's gone mad!

Oh no, I...

I'm sorry Cerebella - I know how you feel about him. I didn't mean to!
He just attacked, and...

...CE-RE-BEL-LA.
FOREVER... WITH... YOU...

Oh no... Did I do this!?

He survived... He's become some kind of monster!
We've got to run!
What the hell happened to Vitale?
We definitely can't go back to the circus after this... so I guess it's just you and me now, eh, Cerebella?
We'll start a new life together... someplace small in the countryside. What do you say, Cerebella?
...Cerebella?

Peacock

Choice A: “Only weaklings need wishes!”,
Choice B: “...I bet I could wish for something really cool!”
Well, what the hell - not very often you get wishes.
May as well wish for something cool.
Skull Heart! I wish for all the world's oxygen to turn into chocolate!

Your wish is grant...
...Wait, really? You can't possibly be serious.

What? Why wouldn't I be? That would be awesome!

My power has limits, girl. You'll have to wish for something else.

What a rip-off!
Uh... well, can you make everyone in the world turn into adorable puppies?]

No, I can not.
And, even if I could, I would not.

I fight all the way here and I can't even get what I want?
Some wish-granting doodad you turned out to be.
Hey, why do you only grant wishes to women, anyway?
Are you a dude?

...Look, I didn't make the rules.
Are you going to make a wish or...

...And what's with that seven year thing, anyway?
Seems pretty arbitrary, if you ask me.

Something about the alignment of the stars, I think.
Are you going to make a real wish or not?

Ooh, ooh! What if...

...Dammit, where is Double?
She's supposed to keep people like you away from me.

Oh, so now you're too good for me, are you?
Maybe if your legend had been a little more specific I'd know these things!

...Really?
Do you know how long it took us to even get this far?
Centuries of whisper campaigns and information control!
I must say, I've been doing this for thousands of years, and you are the worst wisher I've seen yet.

Parasoul

Choice A: “Stop Umbrella!”
Choice B: “Grab the heart!”
Umbrella... I'm so sorry.
It was the only way to save the kingdom.

<cough>
It's... all right.
...It was the right call, sis.
You always... do the right thing.
I... shouldn't have put you in that position.

Umbrella...

Ms. Fortune

Choice A: “Time to reunite the old gang!”
Choice B: “I don't need this, after all...”
If that hell-thing was right, I'm on easy street!
SKULL HEART!
I wish I had my old friends back!

Your misbegotten guilt is exceeded only by your gullibility - no magic can stand before my own.
Your selfishness is a stain on your soul, and the doorway to your swift demise.
Your friends shall be returned to you... and serve you, Skullgirl.
What!? Who would dare do such a thing!?

Nobody know, but people saw those Mafia sneaking around!
The River King hired a detective to find out. His name is Irvin, and left his card - maybe you can help him?

Don't worry, Yu Wan - I'll find them!
But first... Can I at least get an order of bao for the road? I'm seriously starving here.

Interestingly, Ms. Fortune's Story Mode text also includes an unfinished variant of her used ending! A portion of the beginning of the text is missing, but the context is more or less the same as the final's ending.

Painwheel

Choice A: “DESTROY!”
Choice B: “...FREEDOM?”
Free from the needs of the mind, body and soul.
Free of memory, reason and morals.
You shall be rage incarnate, a force of nature... a Skullgirl unlike any before.

Valentine

Choice A: “Become the Skullgirl...”
Choice B: “Seal away the Skull Heart.”
The cycle must stop.
Destroying the heart will only delay the inevitable and make matters worse - there's no telling where the new heart will emerge.
For years I waited, researching the heart inside you, Marie.
These tags I developed will nullify the heart's theonic energy and allow me to safely seal the Heart away in Lab Zero's vault.
...If director Brain Drain will take me back.

...Excellent work.
You have succeeded where countless others have failed, Valentine.

Thank you, director.
Again, I apologize for the deception, but it was the only way to get close to the Skullgirl.

Yes... About that...
This “deception” of yours cost too many lives. One, in particular.
My dear Christmas died because of your betrayal, and that is not something I will forgive so easily.

No, you don't understand...!

Begin implanting the control mechanism.

Yes, doctor.
Administering 50cc's of Roprynzonal.

Implantation complete.

No signs of rejection, Doctor.

Did you really think it would be that easy?
Such arrogant creatures you humans are!
As long as the Heart beats, your world's end marches ever closer.

Transmitting primary imprint... now.

AUUUUUUGGGHHHH!

Similar to the rants in Big Band's Story Mode text, Eliza's Story Mode files in dev.gfs contain several developer comments... and an ASCII portrait of Maya from Persona 2.

Early Marie 300% introduction

Squigly: Sorry!

Leviathan: Our humblest apologies for tricking you. 

Squigly: Yes. You are going to have to wait just a little while longer to play my story mode~

???: Wait.

Squigly: ...?

Marie: When is it coming out, then?

Squigly: Two weeks!

Marie: Two weeks?
Two weeks...?
"TWO WEEKS"!?

Marie: RAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHHHHH!!!

Leviathan: My word! Our frivolous use of internet catchphrases has raised the Skullgirl's anger over 300%!

Squigly: What, 300%? There's no way that could be right!

Marie: I'll teach you to troll me!

Squigly: Oh my, Leviathan... 
With a name like "Marie 300%" this can't be good! 
 
Leviathan: M'lady, it seems as though... 
...as I have heard colloquially...
"We're about to get schooled!"

An earlier version of the introduction to Marie 300% aka Squigly's troll Story Mode. The final lacks the reference to the "over 9000" meme.

Filler String

ZeeVeryLastThingSoItReadsTheLineAbove

A filler string used at the very end of some .sal files in the "Salmon" directory.

Unused Character name

Located within CharacterList.lua and PeacockArcadeMode.lua in the game's ui.gfs is the name "Slave Trader". It is likely that the slave trader who appears in the flashback scene of Peacock's Story Mode was intended to have said something.
