Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN’s New Character Is A Sleepy Enigma

By Spencer . December 6, 2013 . 1:53am

ggsign-01 Bedman along with Zato 1 will be playable in an upcoming Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN location test. And if you haven’t seen Bedman before he’s actually strapped to a bed.


This boy had his rollaway bed remodeled in a devilish way and slept through the whole thing. Almost everything about Bedman is a mystery. We don’t know where he came from or what his plans are, but we do know he likes soba pillows and dislikes chirping Bulbuls and chatterboxes.


His height is 156 cm (272 cm with the bed) and weighs 45 kg (666 kg with the bed). Bedman is extremely powerful and is said to lure his opponents into nightmares he makes. Oh, and the reason why Bedman is sleeping is a mystery too. It looks like one of Bedman’s attacks thrusts the a spiked wheel into the ground and rises where his opponent is standing.

    Well, that is strange.
    Zato-1 now has Eddie.
    So… ressurection or time paradox?

    Also, Bedman… is very unique. Zappa, you have a rival.

    • Daniel

      That’s still Eddie, he claimed Zato’s body as his own back in Accent Core+

  • Go2hell66

    My 1st guess was bedman was a kid riding a robot
    i actually wasn’t that far off

  • Sakurazaki

    Bigger pictures, aww yiiiissss

  • makubexnas

    Bedman……..a rage that come when you poke an insomnia guy trying to get a sleep.

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Duuuuude, I CAN’T WAIT to see this game get released to the console! When it happens, this would be my exact face:

    • I…I lost it when I saw this picture. I must have it now. *clicks and saves* You have made my morning.

  • Shippoyasha

    They couldn’t have picked a hunkier voice actor for the role of Bedman.

  • gangrelion

    Maybe he is the one Sol was talking about in the first trailer. you know, “the punk who Sol doesn’t care to who he really is, because he is just a bounty hunter who goes wherever they’re bounties”

  • Each time I think the Guilty Gear/Blazblue team have exhausted their ingenuity resources for extremely unusual character designs–something like this happens. It’s so often something absolutely crazy… like BEDMAN… but somehow it ends up translating well for the gameplay regardless.

  • koksuckaahh

    My fave fighting game making a comeback?, Move over blazblue! (As my current fave fighter)

  • Chido55

    What’s up brotha!!!

  • Ratutz

    Still waiting for That Man to be playable

    • Ninastars

      My wishlist still includes Bridget, That Man, Sin and Valentine but I’ll be more or less satisfied if we just get Bridget and one more character like That Man who hasn’t been playable before.

      • Göran Isacson

        I have to admit that I’m kind of curious. They HAVE stated that this game takes place some time after Guilty Gear, yet May doesn’t seem to have aged a day. But maybe that’s just some kind of magic at work. What I’m curious about is, if they include Bridget… will he have aged and no longer be a super ultra kawaii little shota but a BIG BUFF MANLY BARA?

        I have to admit, I would laugh like a hyena if that happened.

        • Arrei

          Big, buff, and still wearing his old outfit.

        • Ninastars

          Maybe he’ll end up a bit like Amane from the new BlazBlue, a bit older androgynous guy but no longer a shota.

          I’m all for manly Baradget though. It’d be glorious.

          • Göran Isacson

            Ah, Amane could be another path, yes. But still, I clamor for BAradget in my heart of hearts, solely for the comedic potential in unleashing that upon the fanbase. The weeping. It would be glorious.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I think we’ll be hearing Sugita one way or another, that’s for sure ;)

  • Dragard Kaos

    He reminds me of a Skull Girls character.

    • Shady Shariest

      My thoughts exactly… There is a little bit of Mugen and MugenZ on the what-ever-that-bed-thing-is, too :x

    • Daniel

      If you looked at the new Potemkin design, he looks like Panzerfaust from Skullgirls.
      Although, there has been claims that Skullgirls looks like Guilty Gear and vice-versa.

  • Luis Ibal

    plz bring Dizzy & Jhonny T^T

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I sure as hell hope the PS3 version is one of the upcoming titles to officially have a PS3 to PS4 upgrade Program. That’d be the shiz.

  • mockturtle

    Aaaand this is the video game equivalent of me.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Oooooh Zato-1 has a “Eddie” meter in that screenshot. Maybe that’s a sign that he’s wrested back control, but only barely? Maybe he can only use Eddie’s morphing shadow tricks as long as he has an “eddie” meter, and when that runs out he can no longer use Eddie and has to fight with his bare hands? Or maybe that’s some kind of control meter: Run out of “Eddie” and Eddie starts to disobey or damage Zato… so many possibilities.

    Oh, aand Bedman.

    I gotta admit, I got nothing. You really just have to wait and see what manner of madness they’ll bring with that one.

    • Daniel

      Nah, actually that’s still Eddie, he claimed Zato’s body as his own back in AC+.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ah, did he now? I have yet to find a copy of AC+ so I know very little of the twists there. Kinda wonder why his official name is Zato 1 though…

        • Daniel

          Probably Ishiwatari’s pun on the famed samurai movie: Zatoichi the blind swordsman.

  • Jrocy247

    Where’s Dizzy? :(

    • DragKudo


  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    I know Guilty Gear is known for interesting and original designs but I’m getting the vibe that this one is too wacky for my tastes. There are players who enjoy the designs of A.B.A and Zappa but I can take or leave them tbh.

    That said, I’m absolutely for variety in fighting game rosters and its down to ASW, not me, to decide who they put in their newest instalment. Please introduce some cool looking characters for GGXrd too though.

  • colorblindnightmare

    This game…will kill my social life. Forever.

  • Looks like Chrona xD

  • EternalLurker

    Some of the appearance changes greatly sadden me. (-.-) Millia looks wonky now and she’s lost that amusing similarity she and Ky had going on (same color schemes, similar intros to their themes, both being basically rebels against their organizations, etc). And how the fuck did May go BACK to being totally flat-chested in a game that’s presumably after Accent Core? (AC May: )
