The ScrollBoss site is 17 years old today, but the celebration will go on for more than a day! For now, let’s deal with today’s newness:

Custom sprites
Golden Axe: the Bad Brothers
Streets of Rage: Onihime & Yasha SoR/BK3 (stand and crouch sprites), Abadede SoR/BK2
Crime Fighters series: Faust
Nintendo: Bowser
Kunio-Kun: Yamada
River City Ransom: Slick (Yamada’s counterpart)
Sega: Dr. Eggman/Dr. Robotnik (classic game style)

All that newness is also in the main GFX Generator, where you can make screenshots just like the one at the top of this post!

It’s been a while since I uploaded a video, so I put another short clip compilation, but finally with the real ScrollBoss theme (for better or for worse, that’s up to you).

Be ready for another update tomorrow!

To everyone who has checked out the site back in the days of Vs. Mode fights and Minus World madness (the site section, not the completely different website), those who just visited for the first time today and every party person who falls somewhere in between, thank you for stopping by and making these sixteen pixel-packed years fly by. Get ready for multiple days of anniversary updates, starting with a seven-sprite kickoff!

Custom Sprites:
Capcom: Protoman (with variant)
Konami: Sledge (Vendetta/Crime Fighters 2)
– – Castlevania: Trevor Belmont, Sypha (SotN Cape up variant of the earlier sprite)
IREM: Straw from Ninja Baseball Bat Man
Taito: Sayo-chan (a.k.a. Pocky) from Kiki Kai Kai, Zeke from Zoo Keeper (both in-game and cabinet art styles)
Sega: Sonic the Hedgehog… decided to start running right as I clicked on the GFX Generator screenshot maker. See, that’s just rude. Maybe someone told him Protoman was the coolest person in the pic or perhaps he was scared off by the Zoo Keeper. Don’t worry, this isn’t the only update this week, so let’s see if I can get him to slow down for another sprite before the anniversary updates are done.

All sprites were added to the aforementioned GFX Generators (the old GroupShot and Vs generators).

Another Super-update on the day that Man of Steel hits theaters! How’s that for half-buttocked synergy?


There are now so many “Superman – battle hover” sprites that I had to give them their own gallery. I added more Superman variants, including classic Earth-2, Superman Red, Superman Blue, ’90s hair (or mullet, if you want to hurt his feelings) and Atari 2600. I also added the Samaritan from Kurt Busiek’s Astro City (an excellent, highly-recommended comic that just started up again) and Apollo from the Authority. I also added an old Whizzer edit to the Squadron Supreme/Sinister group character. This update’s bonus super-character is Sonic the Hedgehog in Super Sonic form and that’s in the Sega gallery.

GFX Generators – An edited Superman stage from Justice League Task Force (SNES) was added to the background-choosing modes of the Vs. and GroupShot generators. Sonic the Hedgehog and Superman were updated with their new sprites (Supes also got some new palettes) while Apollo and Samaritan were added to imprint subsections of the DC area (even though Wildstorm isn’t separate anymore).

If you missed last week’s update, check that out for the earlier Superman sprites (even Sunsoft’s Sunman got into the mix) and other info.
