    Is this an unused file or is it already included in the game? If is not here yet, you guys know if they're going to include it in the future?

    This and maybe the spank rough look like alternate timeout animations for Filia.

    Should be pretty easy to figure out why they aren't in the game.

    This is a Filia time-out animation that Mike refused to implement.

    Don't let anyone tell you that Skullgirls has no standards. :P

    Man Chrono you're just full of knowledge aren't you? I'd say that was a good call by Mike, I'm glad that Lab Zero does it's best to stay classy. Nonetheless I'm glad this GIF exists and it's going in my Skullgirls folder.

    As much as I support Mike Z's decision, I am worried.

    This may mean that my hopes of Beowulf's pants falling off in his time-out animation are shot.

    It totally fits Samson! xP

    Nah, to be honest, in the timeout pose, he's basically just pulling his own hair.

    As tasteless as it might be, I think it's somewhat clever what they were going for there. Filia has one win pose where she stands while Samson blows in the breeze, but she also has another one where Samson stands and she blows in the breeze. Filia's current timeout animation involves her tugging on Samson in her frustration, and...well. However risque, I find it vaguely amusing.

    (I bet everyone noticed this parallel already and I'm just stating the obvious.)

    Apparently Mike laid down some ground rules for what he would or wouldn't do after this. I wonder what they are, heh.

    "No ripping off clothing" is probably one off them.

    If it's ideological, it's likely something broad like, "no stripping for the titillation of the audience."

    Which, were that the line he'd drawn, I'd wholeheartedly agree with. A fighting game with satirically overboard sexuality is one thing, but any further any it just become an h-game with good fighting mechanics.

    Val gets stripped down a good number of times throughout her animations, but she's pretty blatantly "that" sort of character.

    But does she strip? Everything I've seen from val is a frame or two here and there during attacks. She'd never just had a moment of, "here, let's remove some clothing for the audience!" Her counter-super does show a lot, but it's part of an animation where she completely disintegrates, and you'd have to pause to see it. Not saying I think it's better, but it's quick, and the intent is different than this win/loss animation (which is essentially, "look at this high school girl's tits! Aren't they great?")

    DukeMagus Not A Duke; THE Duke

    No nakedness
    No unnecessary stripping (except val)
    no underwear-only frames (except val again)
    No parasite sex (except zone-tan)
    No annie (no exception)
    no flesh ripping/bones cracking (except painwheel)
    no eye gouging (except double, peacock is already out)

    They avoided a lot of things to keep it "classy", and even with all the limitations the game has more "sexyness" in the frames and "visual impact" on the attacks than many good titles.

    hafta respect Alex, Mariel and all the art staff.

    I think there is a line between a character taking off their own clothing (to titillate or otherwise), and having their clothing ripped off, the latter of which wouldn't fly. Filia basically has to live with another person strapped on to her head all the time, and showing Samson pulling off her clothes has some pretty sinister implications in her case.

    I'm okay with the time out, but I hope the taunt gets in. Also I hope D.Violet is kept intact, moral hypocrisy can be too much too.

    I don't have a problem with fanservice, but that animation is just so disgusting and I'm glad it didn't get into the final game. Makes me hate Samson a lot. Whose idea was this in the first place? Alex Ahad's?

    Given that Filia was the first character made, this was probably drawn up A LOOOOOONG time ago.

    Also, old version Samson was much more obviously villainous. Now he's just an anti-hero rogue with a heart of gold.

    I don't know (and don't really care) why Mike put his foot down on this, but personally I'm only glad it's not in because the backlash Skullgirls got for having pantyshots and some characters with large boobs was big enough without this kind of stuff.

    Bonus though, I do recall a quote from Ravidrath (I think) from a while back:
    sauce

    Pretty clever animation IMO. It should've remained in the game and happen as often as the cat that pops out of Cerebella's locked and loaded. It could've been a nice easter egg.

    It's probably for the best with how people judge everything to the 10th degree that it didn't get in, but I'd be for any new filia animations being in the game down the road in case she get's new moves, poses or maybe if characters get EX versions of themselves.

    It's safe to assume that the game's rating probably would of been brought up to a M rating if that was left in.
    I might be thinking too deep into this, but wouldn't this be considered pedophile since Filla is 16?

    I'm convinced those people aren't playing the game because it's either anime or primarily an all girl fighter.

    In some countries legal age of consent can be 14 (Estonia), 16 (Russia, Finland), etc, but I doubt it means that lolicon/child porn is acceptable.

    Even so, that least thing we need is ever more juvenile over-sexualization to scare the rest away. Fighting Games have set an extremely low-bar for the portrayal of female combatants, but Skullgirls somehow managed to take that even further, and it does affect how newcomers see the game.

    Hell, it affects how I see the game. I wish it wasn't how it is. I wish the entire game didn't worship at the altar of the battle-slut stereotype. I wish we could have the humor and playfulness without the high-school level sexual, "satire," that some people seem to be so self-congratulatory about.

    That being said, I like the game enough that I'm willing to ignore all that. I just hope it gets better over time, and not worse.

    Samson making her fat and giving her potential heart problems has a lot more sinister implications, if you ask me. :P

    It's a little crass but I see what they were going for (the parallelisms have already been pointed out). The ass smack taunt though, that one just seems gratuitous for gratuitousness' sake (you even see Samson stick out his tongue out of cheekiness, while in this case it's a angry reaction).
    I'd also add that animation has nothing on Double's sacrificial reverse gangbang extravaganza.
    A little girl has her eyes gouged out and no one bats a eyelid but show some teenage cleavage and everyone loses their minds. :3

    But overall, in the hypothetical scenario of that animation being in, there might be a few extra waves but I don't think it would make that much of a difference. People who dislike this game's aesthetics (in their God given right) will keep disliking it, regardless of what is added, altered or removed. Remember how it was before and after Big Band?
    "This game doesn't have any dudes. I don't like it."
    "This game has dudes now. I don't like it."

    Side note, IMHO Peter was a little harsh on poor Camilla White. Legs are the stronger limbs and she has a relatively small frame so it makes perfect sense for her to get all "leggy" on her opponents. If anything, blame the camera man's fixation with her derrière.
