Street Fighter V Adds Skullomania Costume

Street Fighter V Adds Skullomania Costume This Week – GameSpot

A fan favorite, Skullomania’s last appearance as a playable character was in 2018’s Fighting EX Layer and SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy as a gender-swapped version of the showboating hero.

Concept

Skullomania’s design was inspired by the Japanese superhero Kamen Rider created by the late manga author Shotaro Ishinomori, with extra elements drawn from the Skull Man, a character from a manga Ishinomori wrote in order to work out the concepts for Kamen Rider. Skullomania also draws from real-life luchador La Parka (also known as The Reaper/Death).

Appearance

In Street Fighter EX, Skullomania’s costume is simply a black body stocking with a skeleton motif printed on it. The Kamen Rider/”Skull Rider” image was enhanced in Street Fighter EX2, where Skullomania’s costume gained a red scarf, gloves, and boots, as well as a belt almost identical to the Typhoon belt worn by Hayato Ichimonji, Kamen Rider #2. Both the belt and the forehead of Skullo’s mask bear a stylized letter “S”.
