There is his winning photo guys. Feel free to add it in.

I had Minette Feng, and Dahlia over Beowulf, but I am happy he is in, and will be an excellent addition.

I don't plan on going back to the game one way or another (unless the sequel happens, and actually takes off), but I'll take him over Aeon or Annie. If the sequel happens, and Stanley is in it, I'll buy it.

You do know he will play nothing like Kanji right? they said so right in his playstyle part. He is more WWE wrestler then anything. So expect lots of wrestling moves, chairs, made buff taunts, and pile drivers.

im praising every deity i can think of, thank every freaking thing that issac lost, hated that guy. dont care gonna main da Big Band.

As a Stanley fan, I'll admit - The best character won. I can't see anyone being truly upset at this result.

#10
Creeper said on May 16, 2013 at 9:18 p.m.

Professional wrestlers have been using steel folding chairs for decades before Kanji even existed. It's a very tired comparison.

Hopefully this character gets played, and the people who voted for him actually play the game now. I also hope his storyline actually has some importance to the overall cannon.

Good, only interesting character in the DLC polls. The females look stupid and I find it hilarious how people are actually upset that the game isn't female-only anymore.

#18
Evil_Hayato said on May 16, 2013 at 9:26 p.m.

wanted panzerfaust the most and wasnt digging beowulf but i can see his appeal. I think he ll be a nice addition to the game.

#19
CBX said on May 16, 2013 at 9:27 p.m.

>.> man was hoping for Panzer, Isaac, or Dhalia :( :( i'm be even more salty if this character isn't played a lot.

#20
Eye_of_Orochi said on May 16, 2013 at 9:27 p.m.

@ 10

Beowulf is one of maybe only 3 characters I had a strong aversion to from his reveal. But whatever, it is what it is. I'm happy for him and his fans and will just be glad that Skullgirls future is looking bright.

#21
h1tm0nl33 said on May 16, 2013 at 9:28 p.m.

Gamer Logic: wants more females in games like Marvel 3 or Injustice because it's a sausage fest.
Criticizes Skullgirls a game full of females for adding 2 males.

#22
Silverfan said on May 16, 2013 at 9:28 p.m.

Hpefully now people will stop yelling and stereotyping that everyone who wants Minette only wants her in for "generic anime moe" types. Now to wait for the next poll

ButterKnife said on May 16, 2013 at 9:34 p.m.

Honestly, almost every character on their list was acceptable. The two that won weren't my top choice, but not bad in any way.

#27
Chaos15 said on May 16, 2013 at 9:43 p.m.

Seriously I'm getting tire of the Minnete and Annie hate...... no ok I understand Minette's.
But Annie? So what if she looks like an anime cliche. The game is filled with anime cliches and references!

#28
roknin said on May 16, 2013 at 9:44 p.m.

Damn, none of my choices made it, particularly Feng... but eh, I'm fine with that. And Have to respect a man with folding chair. **** yeah.

So likely going to play Squiggly, Big Band, Valentine as my team, methinks! Honestly might even play Beowulf and Eliza as alts...

#29
Galletano said on May 16, 2013 at 9:44 p.m.

BEST RESULTS EVER!

#30
Rawrgna said on May 16, 2013 at 9:49 p.m.

Definitely awesome! i've been voting for him like crazy in the first pole and convinced at least 5 people to vote for him :D

I hope he's a mobile grappler like Tamaki from AquaPazza. Even if he doesn't, im sure he could use the projectile chair to move in.

#31
Kenshiro said on May 16, 2013 at 9:52 p.m.

@28 so what you're saying is that one more anime cliche is what's needed?

#32
Devdan said on May 16, 2013 at 9:55 p.m.

#28 That doesn't make it good. I played Skullgirls for a few weeks, and I had fun with it, but one thing I didn't care for was how LITERALLY EVERYTHING in the game is a reference to something. I generally have nothing against references, but geeze, they went overboard.

#33
Pachendrix said on May 16, 2013 at 10:06 p.m.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Painwheel, and I loved Eliza since she was first revealed back in the funding, but Beowulf is the only character that might actually dethrone Painwheel as my #1 favorite character. Too bad I can't have a 5 character team to show off Painwheel, Mrs. Fortune, Big Band, Eliza and Beowulf!! XD Oh and one more thing, f*ck Annie, right in her generic, boring, mediocre, anime @ss!!! Beowulf LET'S GOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#34
Pachendrix said on May 16, 2013 at 10:12 p.m.

And I almost forgot, too bad Stanley didn't make it, but then again a lot of other great characters were left out. But hey, SG2 is comming in the future, and surely they'll include them, because I would've loved Stanley as well.

#7, Are you retarded? they clearly stated he will be nothing like Kanji, so screw your dumb, know it all, attitude towards the character. If you're gonna bash at a character, at least make sure you have a clue of what your talking about.

BeatNinja said on May 16, 2013 at 10:21 p.m.

You did good people, you made the right choice.

We don't need sharks, waifus, or tank fists just yet, what we needed was a WULF.

#38
Phynx said on May 16, 2013 at 10:23 p.m.

I look forward to playing him

... a year from now.

Speakertag said on May 16, 2013 at 10:48 p.m.

All the salt by people thinking it's staged in here, it's almost as much as when Floe plays IWBTG. Butthurt your anime waifus like Annie didn't make it in?

#48
Beanybomber said on May 16, 2013 at 10:54 p.m.

and now we got 2 guys in the game woot, and a wrestler type to boot! now i can relate to my character more.

Esquilax said on May 16, 2013 at 11:03 p.m.

I wanted Stanley or Venus to make it through

But I am not mad at Beowulf going through!

badjab326 said on May 16, 2013 at 11:12 p.m.

Maybe I'll buy the game now. Big Band/Beowulf team would be pretty hype.

#51
ryuhayabusa13 said on May 16, 2013 at 11:13 p.m.

I think It was a good character choice. Don't see if anymore idiots will take their money back again. I wanted panzerfaust too, but this choice will definitelly add more variety. loved the concept art for all the others too. Eventually we will see the rest on part 2 or 3

#52
MentalFloss said on May 16, 2013 at 11:15 p.m.

A brawler character with a chair... how original. With all the other characters available people chose a persona 4 ripoff.

#53
SnakeX said on May 16, 2013 at 11:21 p.m.

Fantastic, glad he won. I'm excited to see how he looks in motion down the line. Thank goodness an interesting character won and not Annie or something equally as dull.

@53

He's going to play nothing like Kanji. Cry less please.

#54
AugustAPC said on May 16, 2013 at 11:27 p.m.

Ehhh... I love me some werewolves but not a big fan of the "pro-wrestler" type characters.

Umbrella seemed so awesome, I'm just sad she's not gonna be in.

I'm sure this character will be cool. He's just not aesthetically interesting to me. Still... I'm excited to see gameplay from him.

LOL I love how people just see Beowulf as a Kanji Ripoff just because he has a chair.

wow it's a miracle neither aeon, annie, or minette won. maybe skullgirls actually has hope

#61
Doopliss said on May 16, 2013 at 11:55 p.m.

YES! Maybe there's a reason for me to actually play this now.

MentalFloss said on May 17, 2013 at 12:09 a.m.

@54 Not crying in the slightest. Seems I struck your nerve with my comment. Sorry you can't take what people might say on the internet about something you obviously like. :D
Last I checked this was a place to post opinions which I did. Apparently if they don't coincide with your own it's called "crying." That attidue should get you really far in life.

#63
H_Lightning said on May 17, 2013 at 12:14 a.m.

Man, my character didn't make it....
Well atleast Stanley didn't make it.
Time to piledrive some girls!

#64
Loryuo said on May 17, 2013 at 12:24 a.m.

I like how MentalFloss is crying from such a minor amount a words, that made him burst out into a paragraph of denial.

Anyways, atleast a character i would actually play is getting added. i'll def play this game in the 1-2 years it takes for him to get added.

#65
Kawalorn said on May 17, 2013 at 12:26 a.m.

#63 There is having an opinion and there is being plain wrong, AND that mistake was pointed out a few posts above.

http://labzerogames.com/3rdcharacter/ Go check Beowulfs inspirations and see "not Kanji"

No, you're not crying. You're just an idiot that can't check his facts.

Glad to see Beowulf as the winner. Dude was my #3 choice. A bit disappointed that Issac or Stanley didn't get picked, but still awesome =)

#71
Razberryclownsac said on May 17, 2013 at 1:20 a.m.

Wasn't my first choice, but it's cool. My three were Isaac, panzer, and Dhalia, but I'm ok with this. Ready to try all these characters out

#72

Chaos15 said on May 17, 2013 at 2:11 a.m.

@32 & @33

No I'm saying one more is not going to hurt. Beowulf is going to have anime references just like everyone else either in his move set, color swaps, quotes, or all them.

I just wanted a Sword user.

And seriously everyone is hating on Annie for looking like an anime character when THE WHOLE GAMES LOOKS LIKE AN ANIME! The only exception is Peacock and that's for obvious reasons.

#80
tortoos said on May 17, 2013 at 2:14 a.m.

@80

No that's not why I hated on Annie. I hated on Annie because she just came off as somewhat generic and boring in her playstyle and in a game with so many interesting concepts, I think putting a character in who doesn't have a great concept is doing an injustice to everyone. How she looked to me was irrelevant. I just thought her playstyle sounded boring. Besides, you have Ms. Fortune. She SORT OF uses a sword. It's a blade at least.

#81
Schwoi said on May 17, 2013 at 2:15 a.m.

damn it, I really got my hopes up for Feng...
but I'm happy for all the guys who wanted beowulf (or just any male character)

#82
akemiscarab said on May 17, 2013 at 2:15 a.m.

Best news ever! I will have to pick this game up now! Beowulf alone is worth $15.

#83
Chaos15 said on May 17, 2013 at 2:24 a.m.

@81
Well at least that's a reason I can accept.
I guess I'll have to wait for the sequel (if they ever make it) for her Stanley, or Panzerfaust.
And now people here made me like Feng. Damn you guys who like Feng! You made one of you!

ShakeTheWorm said on May 17, 2013 at 2:45 a.m.

Eternal said on May 17, 2013 at 3:15 a.m.

Well I'm a little sad that NONE of my top 5 picks made it in for either vote (Annie, Scythana, Isaac, Beatrix, Feng) but Beowulf was my 6th so I'm not too mad. Really just about any of the characters could have made it in the fan votes and I'd have been ok with it. The only character I didn't want was Aeon because I want them to make her into a boss for Skullgirls 2.

Even the characters I didn't particularly care for I would have been totally OK with them winning because even the designs I feel pretty 'meh' about are better than most designs in current fighting games (Hello Oni/Evil Ryu/Shin Akuma/ect ect.) even Stanley and Minette who are kind of "joke" characters have their charms.

@81 Annie was generic (as a fighter)she did have a power up mode(if that pic was true) but I agree she would of been the ryu/sol of the game maybe that was a very good but bad thing new players would have a go to character but that type of character forces you to play lame or honest SG2 Annie x Beowulf team SWORD X Chair let's go

#89
Celticlord said on May 17, 2013 at 3:32 a.m.

All this Annie hate, she isn't any more bland than the sharkman you love so much. I'm honestly surprised why nobody voted in Isaac, I just voted Isaac as my third choice because MikeZ wanted to make him.

#90
MightyAfro said on May 17, 2013 at 3:39 a.m.

uh.... on what basis is this somehow staged? I'm curious now

#91
DesuBlade said on May 17, 2013 at 3:48 a.m.

Thank god Minette didn't win. What's to even like about that character? She's just a worse Roll clone. I'm a "Weeaboo" and even I don't find Minette worth the vote, even if it was because of Waifu Fags.

I wanted Panzerfaust to win it, but Beowulf winning it isn't that bad either. 'Tis a shame that we will never see how Issac plays considering his very interesting play-style.

#92
Him said on May 17, 2013 at 4:02 a.m.

Hell bloody yes. Beo was my number one choice last time. After hearing he had missed out from being in the top 4 last time by several votes this makes me so freaking happy! Let's go Wulfpack!

#97
Kawalorn said on May 17, 2013 at 5:08 a.m.

#91 On the basis that someone dared to disagree with him. :P

Beowulf was my 3rd choice (after Taliesin and Scythana), so I'm happy with this outcome. Too bad that he will be made last with exception of Robo-Fortune. :(

#98
ShinAkiraDesu said on May 17, 2013 at 5:10 a.m.

Hell freaking yes! Couldnt vote but was hoping to have beowulf the whole time since i saw his character. Now all we have to do is play the waiting game.

#99
icejohn said on May 17, 2013 at 5:25 a.m.

OH MY F***kin STARS! Coming back from work and i never thought that the Wolf would win.
AWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Can't believe both my characters i voted for won!
The fairest of all ladies and the manliest of all men.

way to go skullgirls community!
