Abilities

George's Day Out - Peacock tosses a George bomb that waddles across the screen at slow speed.

Boxcar George - Peacock points at her opponent as a George bomb in a tiny car comes from behind her and races across the screen at medium speed.

George at the Air Show - Peacock engages in Semaphore as a George bomb in a tiny airplane flies in from the top of the screen behind her. The plane flies in a downward arc, crashing to the ground just before the opposite edge of the screen

Goodfellas - Peacock shoves her opponent into a burlap sack, then calls her buddies to stomp down on them in unison. A small George bomb joins in and beats down on the sack with a baseball bat before Peacock flicks away a spent cigar at the George bomb, blowing up the sack in a great explosion. Very high damage, even without multiplier. Deals 32 hits (24 in stompfest, 7 from George bat, 1 in George explosion).

Trivia

  • George's name and build are a reference to the Tex Avery cartoon character George, who in turn is based after George from the novel Of Mice and Men. Both the cartoon character and literary character are accompanied by a friend named Lenny, who is the namesake of the Lonesome LennyBomb.
  • Like Lenny it is not known whether or not there are multiple George Bombs, as he detonates whenever he appears in combat and there can be multiple George's on screen at the same time.
  • George and Lenny were originally named Little Boy and Fat Man before Skullgirls' official release, these names were changed to avoid insensitivity to the atomic bombings of Japan during World War II. Peacock's character trailer still features her referencing Fat Man when activating Lonesome Lenny.
  • Peacock based George and Lenny after the scientist with the top-knot.
