Skullomania reappears in Street Fighter V, but only as a new costume for G


He's got a bone to pick with you

That troublesome but reclusive fighter Skullomania is making his presence felt once again, but unfortunately perhaps not in quite the way fans would have hoped. While it appears that the bodysuited weirdo is finally ready to make his long-awaited return to the Street Fighter franchise, this comeback is only in the form of an alternate costume for the equally bizarre fighter, G.

Skullomania, who debuted in 1996 release Street Fighter EX, has fast gone on to become one of the Street Fighter franchise's most legendary figures. Unfortunately, licensing issues have kept the part-time superhero from returning to the roster of Capcom's flagship fighter, much to the chagrin of fans. In recent years, Skullomania made a much-appreciated comeback, featuring in both Arika's Fighting EX Layer and in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, albeit in genderbent form.

Street Fighter V players can earn the Skullomania costume in the fighter's current "Extra Battle" mode - which tasks players with completing a series of fights in order to earn the skin. Amusingly, even in the Skullomania guise, G retains his iconic top hat. While this may not be the comeback that Skullomania fans had hoped for, it shows that the license issues are clearing up, and with Street Fighter VI currently in development... fingers crossed?
