The Game


  • On the Meta side of things, some of the voice actresses from the game have a few rounds with each other, and each one of them descends into Crowning Moment of Funny material. The first video alone includes Erin (Parasoul) descending into raving insanity for about 30 seconds and putting twists onto her existing lines, while Sarah (Peacock) raves about shouting things like "I see London, I see France..."
    • "Look at that, I crowned a princess!"
      • Pretty much any line Sarah says due to her being a Large Ham.
      • "Where the hell are my followers? Goddamn Egrets!"
    • At the end they are both reduced to incoherent screaming.
      Sarah: Did we just have sex?! Is that what happened here?
    • Throughout the video, Erin frequently faux-yelps whenever an attack lands on Parasoul; to some people, these might sound more of ecstasy than pain.
    • The battle between Laura (Valentine) and Sarah (Peacock) is pretty glorious as well. Starting with Sarah shouting "HELLOOOOO NURSE!!", followed by Laura trying to convince Sarah there is candy in her truck, prompting Danielle (Painwheel) to say "Don't go in that truck, I made that mistake and look at me now!" Also "WHAT HONOR?! I'm a fucking cartoon, you bitch! I have nothing!"
      • "The merry-go-round broke down!"
      • Sarah's Peacock gets away from Laura's Valentine, who was sawing her head off in mid-air:
        Sarah: No, no! It's elective, it's elective surgery!
        Laura: I dunno...I could really help you, uh, look better in that dress...
        Sarah: You—Have you seen my measurements on the website?! I have no figure, there's nothing you can do for me!
      • Then, in Round 2, there's this moment after Sarah successfully lands an Argus Agony Blockbuster move:
        Sarah: "Oh, there it is! Finally, I countered her! I countered her. Look what I did, Mom! Look what I did! Are you proud of me?! Do you love me now, Mommy?!"
        (Peacock then gets hit by an EKG Flatliner attack)
        Laura: "No. No, Mommy does not love you at all."
      • Speaking of the EKG Flatliner, Sarah often lets out a high-pitched "EEE!" when she gets hit by one.
      • And then there's every time when Laura accidentally activates the EKG Flatliner in the air and misses, followed almost ALWAYS by "NO NOT IN THE AIR!!!"
      • And when Peacock sends out the big bomb, they frantically try to get as far away from it as possible.
    • Erin (Parasoul) vs Laura (Valentine)'s 1st fight. Anything from near the end of Round 1 and onward is just going to have tears coming out of your eyes, and most of the time it's going to be Erin's innuendo or Large Ham moments. These moments are connected to each other practically in the span of seconds, and it doesn't even end there:
      Erin: (after just beating Laura) OHHHHHHHHHHH, YES, THAT FELT GOOD! OH, I AM HEALED! Praise the Lord!
      Erin: Oooh, I feel better already! You are good for my health!
      Erin: You don't know how to operate your titties the way I know how to operate my titties! My titties are all organized.
    • Kimlinh (Ms. Fortune) takes on Laura. The inevitable Hurricane of Puns, followed by Kimlinh managing to pull off Fortune's head grab.
      Kimlinh: Yes! I nommed you!... Your boobs taste funny. They taste like plastic.
      Laura (after winning a round): You might be a Skullgirl, but I'm a Skullwoman!
    • And now they play the story mode, with some dubbing involved. The hilarity in these cases however stems not only from the voice actresses, but the cameraman, AKA one of the Egrets. Crowning goes to his performance as Dr. Avian, and Fat Albert!Double.
      • "I'm thirteen; I'm a fucking neonate!"
      • "Dr. Avian! Who did this to you...?" (beat) "WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU?! Look at me!"
        "Oh my god, my eyeball isn't even in my socket anymore! What the hell is this!?"
        "Oh quit your bitching, I got none."
    • Also, Brain Drain.
    • And now they got Rich Brown back to dub Big Band's story mode, and you can see him getting more and more into it throughout the three parts. Includes Kaiji's reprised role as Brain Drain for a sustained cutscene conversation, Rich Brown's Bing Crosby impression and the Running Gag that Dr. Avian isn't actually dead, among many other moments.
      Kaiji!Irvin: Sorry, Ben, she's with me. Little flakey, but she gets the job done... in the end. She's helping me do some recon.
      Christine (or possibly Sarah): At least he's getting a little pussy action on the side.
      Rich!Big Band: You used to cuff 'em, not cuddle 'em.
      Kaiji!Irvin: And you used to not beat up women randomly but y'know, we all change I guess.
    • The playthrough of Parasoul's story mode has a few gems too. Among them include Parasoul descending into madness (again), Molly being voiced by a Wobbuffet, and this moment after Umbrella pokes Parasoul's chest:
      Erin!Parasoul: We'll go after we return to the castle. Get your finger off my boob.
      Sarah!Umbrella: ...I'm stuck.
    • The training series, Mike Z trains Parasoul. Where Mike trains Erin in the fine art of using Parasoul, while slipping into many faux accents, from German to French to British to... of course Russian. Parts 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 9
    • Christine (Filia) and Cristina (Cerebella) fail at trash talk. And it's adorable.
    • A bunch of voice actors have a Skullgirls party at LittleKuriboh's house. Highlights include:
      • Charlotte Ann, the voice actress for Double, finally shows up. Naturally, this leads to Democratic Double versus Republican Double. "REPUBLICAN CAR!!"
      • Also makes an appearance in the playthrough of Ms. Fortune's story mode:
        (Republican) Double: HEY, HEY, HEY, Lady Valentine! The Skullgirl has requested your presence at the Cathedral.
        Valentine I'll be there soon, Double...
        (Republican) Double: YEAH!
        Valentine ...Return to Marie and let her know I found Lorenzo...
        (Republican) Double: ALL RIGHT!
        Valentine ...His minions led me right to him.
        (Republican) Double: FUCKING AWESOME!
        Valentine I just had to stop and perform a little experiment on our feline friend here.
        (Republican) Double: That's sexual!
        (Later, at the Cathedral of the Trinity)
      • Then she goes against Martin himself doing his Abridged!Yami voice the entire match.
      • The fight between the original voice of Peacock, Marianne Miller note  and her successor, Sarah Williams, as There Can Only Be One. Then they both follow Erin's example and go batshit insane.
      • Cristina Vee Taking A Level In Badass and winning every match she played — not surprising, as she was already declaring her intention to learn the game months before it came out. Naturally, it gets to the point where they just want someone to beat her, but she never lets off her Let's Get Dangerous! moment.
    • Two of the Egret voice actors have a Mirror Match, both using Parasoul, to hear their own voice lines.
      "Eric, let me touch you with my umbrella."
      "Lemme touch you with my umbrella."
      "Lemme touch you with my umbrella."
      "Dude that's gay."
      "Let me touch you with my umbrella!"
      "You gotta say no hom-"
      "Say no homo first!"
      "...No homo."
      "There, ok fine."
      Sarah: It's not gay if the tips don't touch!
      "Wait, what about if it's just the tips touching?"
      Sarah: Then you should probably have a long talk afterwards.
    • As well as Ms. Fortune's mentioned above, the other cast playthroughs of story mode are each gems in their own right. From Double's playthrough, and to the tune of 'In The Navy':
      In the Trinity... You can lose your fucking mind, IN THE TRINITY!
    • In Filia's story playthrough, Christina loses to Marie several times. With each one, the space-filler sprite of Filia at the side of the screen switches to become increasingly sad, and then angry.
    • The VAs are at it again during the Breast Cancer donation drive: Every main voice actor for the game except for Danielle attended, and they did more story mode "dubbing". Since Del also couldn't come, they got Mike Z to dub Samson... which, of course, he did in his REAL SOVIET DAMAGE voice.
    • They held another livestreaming event for the Breast Cancer donation drive: The only absent VA was Christine (with Danielle and Sarah making late but grand entrances). Even more story mode "dubbing" ensued. Other highlights include Laura, Cristina, Kimlinh, and Erin all singing "A Whole New World", most VAs taking requests for other character voices, and Squigly's formal debut and the VAs' reactions to it.
      • The videos for the stream can be found here, with most of the events happening in this one.
  • Also on the meta side, people's reactions to Double. See the iron gamers at 1:05, Maximilian's first reaction at 9:47 and his comment on her at 5:43.
  • After the patch came out, Mike Z did a series with Crossover Counter TV to promote the game for the hardcore community. And in one video, guess who returns? SOVIET MIKE Z!
  • Mike Z introduces the voice of Big Band:
    Mike Z: So I'm just gonna let him say hi and convince you all that he should be doing this character.
    Rich Brown: Hello. How's everybody doing out there in chatland?
    Mike Z: That's really all we needed.
    • Rich has since become a recurring guest on Salty Cupcakes, and his epic voice has led to many a chat meme based on the fact that his name is Rich Brown.
  • A very drunk Sarah regales us with the magnificent story of Yu-Wan.
  • Baby Skullgirls.
  • At Salty Cupcakes, when people start talking about all the team name innuendo that can be had with some of the upcoming characters, Danielle (Voice of Painwheel) starts adding "I ship it" after every new name.
  • Big Band will be able to play actual music with his standing Medium Punch. Mike Z demonstrates using "Charge!" as an example. (Starts at 2:50)
  • The Gilligan Cut between two of the Skullfaced videos.
    Erin Fitzgerald: I am remaining sober this evening, for I am Irish, heh-and if I get drunk, it will all go to hell too very quickly.
    The next video:
    "Erin Fitzgerald has been drinking for the past seven hours. She's fine! Look at her. She's Irish. I don't know..."
    Erin Fitzgerald: Happy Saint Patrick's Day, egrets. I decided since that it was Saint Patrick's Day, I was gonna go hard. Erin go brah.
  • The Typing of the Skullgirls Encore. It must be seen to be believed.
  • Fukua...a Take That! to Capcom's Decapre trailer for Ultra Street Fighter IV in the form of a palette-swapped and moveset-altered version of Filia. But, as the video description says, Lab Zero believes in taking a joke as far as it can go...which means Fukua is an actual, playable character now.
    • The best part? Look at her alternate costumes. Most of them are references to other clones and/or palette swaps in video games.
  • Before officially being cast as Beowulf, Kai Kennedy made a concept voice reel of him. His ridiculously hammy voice is worth a few laughs by itself, but some of the quotes are just gold too.
    (to Filia) Hey nice hair, I OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING?!
    (to Squigly) You got a dragon huh? Well I got a chair, so... yeah...
    (to Eliza) Aw sweet, I love your records! But I'm still gonna have to suplex you. Sorry.
  • The Skullgirls version of Lore In A Minute, complete with the voice of Kira Buckland (voice of Marie). WARNING: Contains spoilers for Squigly's Story Mode.
    Now it's up to you to pick a girl (or a giant tuba-man), fight your way to the lair of the Skull Heart and defeat the Skullgirl's three super-cheap forms, claiming the Skull Heart for yourself in what definitely probably will not backfire ever.
  • The website's official bio and description of Robo-Fortune:
    Robo Fortune is the creation of Brain Drain, the psychic director of ASG Lab Zero, and stands as a testament to her maniacal creator’s unmatched pride and petulance. Built to demonstrate loyalty and cunning, Robo Fortune fails to deliver either to any measurable degree. Employing cutting-edge technology, she sets out to hunt down the Skullgirl, and to engage in easily avoidable conflicts.
    Is the ASG Project’s latest creation the ultimate cybernetic soldier? Have Brain Drain’s mechanical machinations set the world on a treacherous path? Is Robo Fortune’s faulty programming more of a feature than a bug? Has science gone too far?!
  • The entirety of the "Skullfaced" series.
  • This page in a cheat book. It's hilariously bad.
  • Getting a "happy birthday"note  is pretty awesome already because it means you're scoring effectively double damage. Playing as Big Band and taunting your opponent by playing "Happy Birthday" on the trumpet during the Satchmo Slowdown before winning the fight with a Satchmo Deathblow? Teetering on the edge of "infuriating" and "so classy you can't be mad" with a heaping helping of unexpectedly funny.

How well does it match the trope?
