That is the greatest fucking pun ever, jesus christDouble's gross fleshy form is referred to as her true form, meaning that the name Double was assigned to that particular form.
Her two default forms are her true form where she can transform, Double, and the nun form that is shown to be not entirely human with white eyes and creepy stretchy crap.
Therefore, at any given time she is either Double or Nun-thing.
(Also I think Alex may have said her nun form is called Nothing but I don't remember where.)
Oh yeah I totally forgot about the Carol reference. I think it's also meant to be a pun on the word "carousel". Gonna add that when I get home.Painwheel - 'Carol' is derived from an Old German word meaning 'free man'. There are other roots, but this one seems the most relevant.
If it isn't too anal, I'm trying to find the references in the normal move names - after all, what other game would be deranged enough to cram references in the names of the goddamn normals?
Yeah, I kinda got stumped with his name as well. I suppose I should add in what exactly it means but I have no idea what it could be referencing.You know, you would really think Vice-Versa's name means something... but I've got nothing.
Maybe it refers to how it picks up people and turns them upside down? Or how arms are usually attached to the torso? Or if we want to make an even stupider theory, it's because some of vice versa's attacks can be used as reversals? Hell if I know.
No, seriously, they didn't just randomly assign this name, it has to mean something, right?
Vice Versa means reversed.
I don't think Alex was going for accurate German spelling. For all we know, the names of Death and Pestilence/Conquest could be in completely different languages.
Oooh be careful you might be indirectly insulting his language by comparing it elementary school humor.
I apologize if that was insulting. I'm sure that you could find tons of English words that sound stupid in German. This also applies to pretty much all languages, I think.
Oh, yeah, Krieg isn't actually misspelled in the game I think. I misspelled it in this thread since I am an idiot. orz
Wouldn't they belong to Canopy Kingdom royalty as well? Also, do we know where Parasoul and Umbrella even got their weapons? And for that matter, do we know where Cerebella (or the medicis) got Vice Versa?Oh, yeah, Krieg isn't actually misspelled in the game I think. I misspelled it in this thread since I am an idiot. orz
But yeah I'm pretty sure Alex intentionally didn't use Hungersnot in order to avoid it sounding strange in English. There was also a whiteboard sketch by Alex where he labelled the Death umbrella as "Tod". He has said at a Salty Cupcakes that the other 2 umbrellas aren't locked down canonically yet they might change.
The sketchbook shows King Renoir wielding Tod. The other umbrella had a really rough design on the whiteboard sketch, and was labelled "Pestilence/Conquest" so Alex hasn't clearly thought it through. The assumption is that Queen Nancy would have been the one to wield it.
I agree. I suppose that's why Alex is still thinking about it. Conquest seems to fit well King Franz.
Not talking about their origins, it's just never addressed how Parasoul, Umbrella and Cerebella even found their weapons. As far as we know, they always had them. On the other hand, it's clearly said that leviathan is a parasite that's been with the Continello family for a while, and we know how Samson and Filia wound up together.
Oh okay I see what you mean. The only story I have heard about the umbrellas is that Hungern is actually the stronger umbrella compared to Krieg, but Parasoul was given the weaker umbrella as she compensates for it with better fighting skills. (This was told by Alpha, who worked on Skullgirls several years ago so it's possible that this info is outdated.)Not talking about their origins, it's just never addressed how Parasoul, Umbrella and Cerebella even found their weapons.
