    I brought this idea up in the fanfiction thread and I thought that maybe we can discuss how it can work. If you don't know want Final Fantasy 6 is, we'll wait as you look into it and if you don't know what Skullgirls is, I'll follow you to the library and look into it.

    I think that retelling FF6 with the Skullgirls is possible. We can have Filia be Terra, the Mafia can be the Empire, Carol as Gau, etc. However I don't who'll be the perfect fit for everyone, like for Cyan or Ultros. Then again, we can edit bits of the original story so this one flows better and makes sense for the characters. like say, have the entire party head off to Zozo instead of just 4.

    BTW this is NOT an actual project. More like a fun group brainstorm.

    I almost satisfied with this list. There are some roles I have no idea who to choose, the mogs are something I'm having trouble to choose a character for. We can have the parasites be Espers and theonite can be magicite. I think Fukura can a joke with the joke being she beleives to be the main hero even though FF6 is an ensemble cast. Then again, the Skullheart can be treated as a joke because it's not important to the story.
    As for the idea of replacing the 8 dragons with Shovel Knight's Order of No Quarter, I thought it might be a cute cameo that makes sense to me like Treasure Knight can be plundering the lost castle, Mole Knight can be tunneling in the Phoenix Cave, King Knight can be ruling the opera house etc.

    Also, I thought I might share this playthrough of Pony Fantasy 6. Just to show what not to do.

    I just thought of how I can work on this. I tried looking at this with modding but I have trouble figuring out on how to use it. So I figured I could remake the maps into projects with the RPG Maker and work from there and when I get the full version I can put them all together. I just have one question: Do you want me to try to recreate the FF6 Battle System, The battle system from the SkullGirl RPG that's on hiatus or a mix of both.

    Also some story ideas, I don't know If I want Squigly to die or not but if I want her to die but stay in the party I can have her drink the poison when everyone is stating to die and finally keels over when you get off the train.
    As for Nadia's backstory, instead of being about someone who failed the person she loved, we can just her backstory from the Skullgirls about her being part of a gang and never let go of what happened to them. when you get to her home, instead of going to a house where you see the love you go to a graveyard and she'll just start introducing you to the graves.

    One final question: Who would be a better Gesthal, Lorenzo or Vitale?

    Honest question: Who would be a better Kefka? Double or Eliza.

    I know you can't do the whole crazy clown who went mad after being the first magitek solider since one of them is an parasite which would be the Espers of this setting and the other is Satan. I do like the idea of either of them being just off to everyone around them.
