* Marie rarely flinches to anything but to the most relentless of Blockbusters or combos. During the introduction to Peacock's story, Dr. Avian is giving some insight to her weaponry, describing the Z-Rays as being to able to 'disrupt a Skullgirl's very essence'. Coincidentally, Argus Agony happens to be one of the best Blockbusters when it comes to stun locking Marie. It's also very safe in comparison to most Blockbusters, and can hit Marie and most of her undead servants simultaneously.
* When Marie says that Umbrella 'reminds me of an old friend', it could be seen as Marie referring to Peacock - or it could be the Skull Heart speaking through her, referring to Parasoul's mother.

* Why would the game be called Skullgirls if there's only one Skullgirl in the game, and she isn't a playable character? [[FridgeBrilliance Fridge Brilliance]] kicks in when you realize that [[spoiler: almost every single playable character in the game is a potential Skullgirl due to their wishes being considered "impure" by [[JackassGenie the Skull Heart's]] [[IncorruptiblePurePureness standards.]]]]

* Eliza doesn't actually have a body—anything on her that isn't Sekhmet is basically blood. Including her skin, clothes, face, everything.

* Even more for Squigly, since her fate is horrible. Squigly is trapped in a never-ending loop of violence now. Whenever a new Skullgirl arises, the dead and Squigly rise again, but due to Leviathan she is immune to the Skullgirl's control. Meaning that she must defeat the Skullgirl if she ever wants to rest, but the Skullheart is guaranteed to appear again every 7 years, it will only awaken her once more and repeat the process forever. And to make things worse Squigly's body will continue to degrade over the years until all that is left is a skeleton. There is some solace in that Squigly is the perfect counter to the Skullgirl, and as long as she and the [=SkullHeart=] exist so will Squigly and Leviathan to stop them, though this is a cruel fate to bestow upon a 14 year-old girl who would probably never want this kind of fate.
* When Peacock arrives in Lorenzo Medici's office at the end of her story mode, it's implied that she got there by killing all of the Medici goons that stood in her way. Which quite probably includes Cerebella. In fact there's actually supporting evidence for this - in the shot with Peacock and all her cronies in the ending, she's holding a tattered scrap of Vice-Verses in her hand.

** In terms of Double's ending and her goals as seen in Beowulf's story, [[spoiler: She intends to eat everyone who gets in her way or fails to make a wish, and seemingly is absorbing them into herself. This is likely why she can shapeshift into other characters and use their moves and abilities. She's absorbed the fighting prowess and abilities from all the playable characters from every possible bad-end, then moves to the next one. A horrifying abomination that not only has all your strengths but knows she can beat you because she already has!

* When you play through the story modes for Double and Eliza, you realise something horrible about [[CrystalDragonJesus The Trinity]]: [[spoiler: The revered goddesses of this world are actually [[DeityOfHumanOrigin former mortals who somehow ascended to godhood]] centuries ago, and at least one of them was ''killed''by Eliza. Because of this, they ''hate'' humanity and want to destroy them; they ''created'' the Skullheart and its Skullgirls in hopes of eventually wiping humanity out. Oh, and the Skullheart? Is actually the last mortal remains of "The Mother". So, without even knowing it, humanity is worshiping a set of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s who actively want to kill them all! Talk about VillainWithGoodPublicity...]]

* Something that occurred to this troper as they considered whether ''Skullgirls'' was eligible for the GrandUnifiedTimeline (answer: probably not) - judging by the trees in Maplecrest, the game takes place in early autumn. That probably means that Peacock's birthday (November 13th) is coming up. Happy birthday, Peacock - [[spoiler: you have to kill your best friend.]]

* "In a Moment's Time" is a sweet jazz song that sounds fairly romantic at first listen. Paying closer attention to what the lyrics are implying reveals that the song is actually sung from the ''Skullheart's'' perspective.
