Cerebella is one of the playable characters in Skullgirls.
The biggest sensation in the Cirque des Cartes, Cerebella is a tumbling, soaring dynamo of star power: throughout the Canopy Kingdom, she’s admired for her enormous strength and alluring curves. Sadly, this acrobatic orphan only desires the attention of one man, mobster Vitale Medici, who took her in and became the closest thing to a father she’s ever known.
While inherently good, Cerebella serves the mafia as a leg-breaker when not performing in the circus. Cerebella is the only person capable of controlling her powerful Living Weapon hat, Vice-Versa, so Vitale is stingy with his affections to keep her fighting in his corner.
After defeating Marie, Cerebella obtains the Skull Heart but decides not to make a wish just before Ms. Fortune makes an attempt to steal it. Cerebella stops the attempt by catching her in Vice-Versa's hands with Ms. Fortune still screaming threats against the Medici Mafia. She claims that she won't stop as long as the life gem still flows through her veins, which rings out to Cerebella. Using Vice-Versa's strength, Cerebella crushes Ms. Fortune's body into nothingness and reveals the life gem.
Soon after, Cerebella (as well as Vice-Versa) are seen in a bunny costume sitting on Vitale's lap with him congratulating her on a job well done.
Cerebella looks away with a sad expression in regret for killing Ms. Fortune in the process.
Cerebella is an energetic go getter who enjoys entertaining the crowd at the circus. In the fighting circle, she is confident in her and Vice Versa's abilities and the two make a formidable team. Despite the fighting, she is a very kind-hearted girl who shows no negative feelings towards any person unless they mess with anyone (i.e. Vitale and the Medici clan) she deems family. As shown in story mode, Cerebella is hostile towards Ms. Fortune for wanting to kill the Medici clan, unaware of their true intentions. Even with said hostility, she does not want to harm anyone to the point of death, even if it was Ms. Fortune. Judging by the look of sadness on her face after killing Ms. Fortune she has shown signs of regret.
Cerebella is the master of Vice Versa; its giant arms grappling and throwing foes around the screen like ragdolls. Cerebella herself is a talented acrobat and has no trouble adjusting her body to suit Vice Versa's needs, she is vicious with punches and kicks and contains hidden blades in the heels of her boots for a nasty surprise.
Cerebella is known for her beautiful and simple black eyes, slightly tan skin, and cerulean hair color. Cerebella's hair is tied in a sharp ponytail, and on her head is Vice Versa. Her attire consists of a sleeved mini dress with orange and black colors. Cerebella wears thigh-lengthed boots with a pair of small skulls in each.
- Movement: Can only step, no air dash.

Fighting as Cerebella
Cerebella's attacks deal tremendous amounts of damage, making her a nightmare against one-character teams. Even against multiple-character teams, her attacks and grapples can leave an opponent in critical condition until their health regenerates.
Fighting against Cerebella
A multiple-character team is strongly recommended when facing Cerebella. Most damage incurred from Cerebella's most powerful attacks/grapples ends up as "scratch", or recoverable damage. Once this happens, simply switch characters as soon as possible and keep a wary eye out for Outtakes. Ranged attacks are recommended to keep her at bay, as it takes an incredibly fast hand and reaction speed to pull off "Diamond Deflector"
- Her name is a play on the word "cerebellum". The cerebellum is the part of the brain at the lower rear of the head which controls motor functions.
- Cerebella is voiced by Christina Vee, the voice director for Skullgirls and also known for voicing Noel Vermillion in BlazBlue and Mio Akiyama in K-On!.
- If Cerebella kills an opponent with her Battle Butt attack, "2000" will appear on screen in a similar fashion as killing an enemy in Battletoads, an intentional reference placed into the game by Mike Z.
- Cerebella, like several members of the Cirque des Cartes(Circus of Cards), is incorporated with one of the four symbols or 5 characters in a deck of playing cards. Her symbol is the Diamond.
