Ooh. I doubt that's an intended meaning but quite interesting.
Same, it's just a really funny coincidence!
I was just reading Levi's wiki page when you posted that, weird coincidences everywhere. Attack on Titan also has a lot of meanings in the various character's names.
There is quite a bit left. :p I've been too busy/lazy to finish the list lol.
It was Alpha who said that he suggested it to Alex and showed him the picture, but yep you are correct.Now, uh, I forgot in which stream I heard this in, but I think Alex said that he named Parasoul's royal family, the Renoirs, after the artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This piece, aptly named "The Umbrellas", was the inspiration:
Good point; "Bloody Marie" is hardly ever used in the actual game, but it's found in several official materials. For example, if you look here and scroll down to Squigly's story, you can see her referred to as Bloody Marie. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/keep-skullgirls-growing*Incoming newb question*
Where, exactly, is Marie referred to as "Bloody Marie?" I've seen what is effectively all the dialogue in the game (I am missing after Marie 300), and I don't recall her ever being called that. She also isn't exactly covered in blood as she appears in-game...so where is she called Bloody Marie?
(Also, if it's a nickname of sorts, how did she earn that nickname?)
Her diva aspect is also based on Elizabeth Taylor, who played Cleopatra.
I keep forgetting that.
The 5th of Dismember is actually a reference to the 5th of November, the date of the Gunpowder Plot. Specifically, to the nursery rhyme:Guys, I have some information about Ms. Fortune.
First, her name, Nadia is a very common Russian female name. The full version of this name (Nadezhda) is also translates as "hope".
Second, her phrase while doing lvl5 is: "Remember, remember the 5th of dismember" which is similar to 5th of December. So it's obviously a reference to some event that happened in this date.
Another thing that I found out, apparently Cleopatra supposedly had a beautiful voice. Her singer persona might be a nod to that.
I'm sure it's already been noted, but I don't see it on the beginning list, so here we go. The name of Filia's Level 1 Blockbuster, "Gregor Samson," is a reference to Gregor Samsa, the main protagonist of the book The Metamorphosis, in which he transforms into an indescribably horrible vermin. Said vermin is sometimes mistranslated into "cockroach," hence the resemblance between Filia in this state and a cockroach.
Double's name may also be a reference to the term "Double Voice," a voice editing tactic where the same audio is played over itself at two different pitches (Supported by the fact that Double's own voice clips use this very tactic).
Has there been any thought as to what Marie's last name, "Korbel," might mean? I punched it into my search engine, and all it brought up were Californian wine companies.
OH MY OGD.A minor one but this had me grinning
So according to Alpha Peacock's concept art, Peacock's last name is Watson. Now assuming that they didn't change it for the final product, this is a actually pretty meaningful name. Watson literally means Son of Wat, Wat being a medieval nickname for Walter.
Who's a famous Walter we all know and love?
P much my reaction. It actually took me awhile to figure out why he picked that name and I'm kicking myself for not noticing the meaning earlier. Plus Peacock has a lot of Disney (and Loony tunes, but that's another company) shout outs, abet Golden age era mostly. I thought that she was named after Watson from Sherlock Holmes until I found out what her name actually meant. Alex Ahad, you magnificent bastard.
Also Bella's grab blockbuster.
