Skullomania was once an average salesman called Saburo Nishikoyama. His superiors were not pleased with his results as a salesman. Down on his luck and constantly under pressure for results, he volunteered to dress up and perform like a superhero at a carnival thrown for a top customer in their department store. He had hoped it would be chance to prove his value as a salesman. When he grabbed the attention of all in attendance, something clicked in him. Tired of his job, Skullomania decided to become a vigilante crime-fighter. Not much else is known of his past.
In Street Fighter EX2, like most other Arika characters, Skullomania's storyline was changed. Instead of being a Japanese businessman, he was a defector from an army of an unknown nation, he and Shadowgeist are implied to be brothers.
Skullomania was officially used in the Arika game Technictix, released only in Japan. Skullomania also made an appearance in the PlayStation game, Fighter Maker, even with some of his special moves intact. His signature move is the Skullo Dream, an unblockable combo attack which is increasingly comedic in execution as the series progresses.
- Skullomania's design was most likely inspired by the Japanese superhero Kamen Rider (who interestingly enough was based off another character, from the same creator, called Skull Man) and real-life luchador La Parka (also known as The Reaper/Death).
- His ending in SFEX is a reference to Kinkotsuman from Kinnikuman (M.U.S.C.L.E) Giant Scene.
- Skullomania is one of the 5 playable characters to have their name shortened under their lifebar (appearing as "Skullo"), not counting the use of M. Bison's Japanese name in the international version. The others are Shadowgeist, Cracker Jack, Cycloid Beta and Cycloid Gamma.
- Due to his erratic playstyle and goofy nature, Skullomania has become a fan favorite among Street Fighter fans.
- Skullomania made a very small cameo appearance in the Street Fighter Legends: Sakura comic.
