There is a lot of potential for what might happen a couple of decades later in the Skullgirls universe, and a lot of stuff to draw from. Instead of a World War II motif, now there'll be a Cold War motif, alongside soda fountains, jukeboxes, roller skating, {{Jerk Jock}}s, rockabilly music, ''Music/TheBeatles'' (well, an analogue), PsychedelicRock, large pink convertibles, drive-in theaters, drive-up hamburger stands, suburban sprawl (though I think the existing game already covers that), the Space Race, variety television, the early stages of the Civil Rights Movement, some ''Manga/AstroBoy'' expy, political assassinations, and maybe an AlienInvasion. Because this would be a TimeSkip, it would necessitate a completely different set of characters, however, hence why it would have a spin-off status rather than a direct sequel.

** There could possibly still be the opportunity for some characters to reappear as OlderAndWiser versions of themselves. Some may not even change that much, since Miss Fortune is TheAgeless as a side-effect of the Life Gem's immortality, Peacock and Big Band are both {{Cyborg}}s, and [[ImprobablyFemaleCast since almost the rest of the cast is full of young, teenaged girls]], a ten or even twenty year TimeSkip will leave most of them in their 20s or 30s, which would probably still be prime fighting age for them.

* More likely, Robo-Fortune will still start off as a shameless EvilKnockoff of the real Ms. Fortune, but will eventually grow a conscious along with Fortune's personality ([[DoAndroidsDream complete with wondering if she was starting to grow a soul in spite of being a machine]]).

She's probably the silliest member of the playable cast bar Peacock, with her lame puns and goofy animations, yet she managed to turn her {{Immortality}} into a unique fighting style. For all we know, she may be the biggest {{Badass}} too.

*** Cerebella being pure of heart is not so hard to fathom should comparisons to [[{{KingdomHearts}} Terra]] be made. In short, fundamentally good people at heart that are easily manipulated by rotten people that they trust (Vitalli and Xehanort respectively).

So... what do you get if you fight fire with fire? More fire. Brain Drain sent what is basically his own pet Skullgirl against the real deal. Why? Because he wanted control of the Skullgirl. [[KillAndReplace He deliberately let Painwheel loose off the leash so that she would direct herself to destroy Bloody Marie, replacing her]]. Valentine, who worked on Painwheel, was surprised to see her break free of the mind control so easily. And she would know about it more than anyone, save Brain Drain. So Brain Drain let Painwheel go to take out both Valentine AND the Skullgirl to take care of a loose end and replace the Skullgirl. He already has control over Painwheel. He made something of similar makeup that he already controlled because asserting dominance over a Skullgirl is... [[RedEyesTakeWarning kind]] [[PowerFloats of]] [[PowersDoTheFighting hard]] [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity to]] [[ArmyOfTheDead do]].

Added DiffLines:

** Allow me to attempt to translate it for you. Despite the fact that her story mode was just a dream [[TheStinger (or not)]], and that she is a creation of Brain Drain, she is not under his control. Being inhabited by two souls, she may have more personality that any other of BD's cloning projects, and thus, may want to be Filia. So she takes down BD and his projects, so that he won't come back to her and make her do whatever. This leaves her room to hunt down and inhabit Filia.

[[AllThereInTheManual According to supplemental material]], Lorenzo Medici held a rather healthy, handsome and most importantly suspiciously long life. Cue a [[IncrediblyLamePun cat burglar]] and the band of thieves she snooped around with, the Fishbone Gang, performing a daring heist on the unsuspecting Medici mob family and pinching Lorenzo's Life Gem. Ms. Fortune swallows it before she and the gang are butchered and dumped into the ocean. Weeks later, presumably, Lorenzo looks more like [[MarlonBrando Marlon Brando]] than [[DannyDevito Danny Devito]]. That Life Gem was the only thing keeping him from withering down to a prune of a man liable to break in half from the brute force of someone turning their head to look at him. A side effect of Ms. Fortune ingesting the gem is that its effects are everpresent on her at all times... this may well mean that she will live forever, unable to truly die, as she has fused with the Life Gem rather permanently if her description of the bond is anything to go by. Also, if her [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original design]] is canon in that it was what she looked like before she 'died', then [[PowerDyesYourHair Power Dyes Your Hair]] too. Or maybe it was being dead and submerged for a while that did that.
