Prize Fights

Prize Fights is a game mode that requires the player to be at least level 10 to unlock it.

The game mode puts the player in a continuous string of 3v3 fights where they choose 3 among their collection of fighters and get matched to another team of 3 (created by other players). The matchmaking method is based on the total fighter score of the 3 chosen fighters (as a result, choosing higher-point fighters results in getting matched with tougher opponents). If the player wins a match, they will get an amount of score that counts towards reward tiers of the Prize Fights' theme (for example, the 'Medici Shakedown' theme contains Canopy-Coin reward tiers). The more the player wins, the longer the win streak and, therefore, the higher the score multiplier will be so the player can get to higher reward tiers.

The following are Prize Fights' themes:

  • Two to Tangle (Filia)

Fighter Cards

In lieu of a roster made up of completely different characters, Skullgirls Mobile has fighters based on different color palettes of cast members from Skullgirls 2nd Encore, each with a unique title besides the character's name. In-game, this was explained as summoning fighters from parallel dimensions through the use of Relics, however; this has been retconned.

The fighter cards are split between rankings of bronze, silver, gold, and diamond, with the possibility of evolving fighters to a higher rank when certain sacrificial conditions are met. Fighters of each character palette are also associated with their own element: Fire, Water, Wind, Light, Dark or Neutral.

Update 3.3.1 introduced a standardized greyscale palette for Sparring Partners in Training Mode.[4]
