About This Content

Big Band's in full swing!

Once a cop known as Ben Birdland, he fell flat when he got on the wrong side of New Meridian's corrupt police force. Birdland was broken and bent out of shape by his former colleagues, but was tuned up by Dr. Avian and ASG Lab 8. Now he is armed with a full ensemble of pneumatic weaponry, making him the full fortissimo instrument of justice: "Big Band."

Thanks to the incredible support of Skullgirls’ fans, Big Band is the second of 5 additional characters funded by Lab Zero’s Indiegogo campaign to be added to Skullgirls Encore. Big Band is Skullgirls's first male character, and lives up to his name with unique gameplay mechanics that take advantage of his tremendous size and musical motif.

Big Band features the same stunning, feature-quality animation and great gameplay you've come to expect from Skullgirls and Lab Zero Games, as well as a story mode and detailed tutorials so you can learn more about him and the Skullgirls world!

He's so big that he took twice as long to animate as every other character and forced the developers to completely retool how the game handles sprites just so he'd fit. His moves take up the whole screen. He has the only one-meter two-move touch-of-death in the game. He will kill people by breathing on them, and then you can use your fightstick to play a trumpet song to their corpse. I would pay $50 for him, but thankfully you can play him for just $5.

Big Band!

Now, you might be thinkin, "Gondy, oh Gondy, why oh why would I play Big oh Band?" Well first, I'd tell you to stop saying oh. You said that like three times, cut it out. But second of all, I'd tell you this: Who fights with tubas? Hm? Can you name even one character? No, hey you, in the back, put your hand down. The correct and only answer is: Big Band. Now, you might be also thinkin, "Gondy, oh Gondy, you haven't really explained at all why I should play as Big Band! In fact, you're just spouting a bunch of nonsense!" Well first, I'd congratulate you on using only one 'oh's for that entire sentence. Really, impressive! Good job! We're all very happy for you. But as for your actual question: can you name a character that fights with tubas?

One of his basic moves is a tiny bike horn. You know you want that.

Incredible damage and good combo potential but hard specials to pull off and slow.
You can play your favorite song on a trumpet and then beat your enemy to complete ♥♥♥♥, seriously that move will take out half to 3/4ths of a health bar depending on their team size. He's a smooth-talking butter-voiced brass-powered detective with incredible sax appeal, he's awesome.

It's pretty much Robocop, except replace his robotic features with instruments.

10/10 Would Blow.

Big Band is an amazing character, great power, amazing combos, and quite overpowered. The only thing that makes him a character that isn't the most over powered is his lack of speed, which balances it all out.
