List of Character Short Names
« on: January 20, 2012, 04:50:35 PM »
Hi, I'm new to Melty. Having no previous Melty Blood experience, the character short names are confusing me.  :mystery:

Eg. this tier list:

Quote
S Nero Ryougi
A+ Arc Satsuki Wara Seifuku
A Sion Warc Akiha VAkiha Nanaya Kohaku HisuKoha Mech Len Kouma Ries Roa PCiel
B VSion Shiki Ciel Miyako Aoko WLen Hime
C NecoArc NecoArcChaos KohaMech Necomech

I figured Ryougi is Ryougi Shiki, and from youtube's videos I've gathered that Red Arcueid is WArc. But who is "Arc", as there's a huge number of characters with "Arc" in their name. Also, does this list not have Archetype: Earth, or is her short name something really strange?

If someone knows a link where these are listed it'd be much appreciated, as I couldn't find one after extensive googling and forum searching. Beyond that, if someone wants to put together such a list, it would be much appreciated!

Edit:

I've copied the linked answer here, in case it helps someone searching for the same info.

You're right about Red Arcueid. "Arc" should be Arcueid, and Archetype Earth is listed as "Hime".

Someone else should do the list though, since I've seen different notations on Youtube videos and such.

Read description on left sidebar

A lot of the short names that we use nowadays were lifted from the system files in the original PC version of Melty Blood(back when it was a doujin game).  For example, Akiha Vermillion/Sekishu Akiha was just "VAkiha" and Red Arcueid/Bousou Arcueid was "Warc".  Even though these characters are not officially called that anymore, the names have persisted since they're a lot easier to say and write

As for Archetype Earth being called Hime, it's what the Japanese Melty scene calls her.  We use the Japanese name to avoid search string overlap on Youtube.  If we just used her original name "Archetype Earth", people searching for Arc videos on Youtube would also get Archetype videos mixed in.

Thanks for the links and explanation, that clarified it for me plenty!

I edited the list into the OP in case anyone else searching wanders here (and it was a good exercise in learning the character names ;D )
