Amazing work on those!

it's 16x16 size or something else?

They fit 16x16 tiles as a base of characters, but they are taller of course. 

Just wanted to say I purchased the Spooktober Sale Bundle and all of this spritework is AMAZING! The style has a really pleasant character to it; kind of reminds me of my old Rm2K days in all the best ways. Thank you for putting your work out there! ^^


puedes poner una vercion gratuita pero que no sea base, pues no todos tenemos dinero para comprar los sprites, solo es una sugerencia

Wow this is so cool :D

is there any animation samples?

Hi, how many sprites are with battle animations that have 4-directions? I want to use these sprites for an action rpg not battler. 


Hey, is chara sheet 1 exclusive for RPG Maker? because it was not within the sheets folder.

Oh good it was pointed out 2 years ago and still hasn't been addressed D: 

Noticed it myself and came to see if anyone else had already pointed it out

hello :P I love what you do, it's completely amazing! I agree with the other person! lower . up and down animations are needed! on many characters and even creatures! thank you for your attention ! much appreciated and keep up the great work

can i use this package in any engine other than rpg maker like unitycan i use this package in any engine other than rpg maker like unity

Yes that's fine

Hello , how do i get in  touch with you ? I would like to make a collab . My email is mmarius1991@gmail.com

Feel free to send me an email on the form on my website or a DM on Twitter. Thanks!

Hello! Are these assets available with equipment/hair seperated from the base sprite? I'd like to allow characters to equip/unequip items visually. If you have these available I'd be willing to pay extra, if not then no worries.

Not for this set. But there's been demand for such a thing, so I'm planning to do this for my next release. And maybe sooner than you might think... Stay tuned!
Thanks :)

Awesome! Looking forward to it then!

What file type are the sprite sheets?


does this  pack include only walking animations? or  do it have attack animations as well?

This set just has the walking animations. There's an expansion pack that has side-view battle animations for use in RPG systems, you can find it here: https://finalbossblues.itch.io/side-view-animated-rpg-battlers

this looks great. but i am working on a action RPG game and i am lookimg for top down NPC s   walking attacking animations.

I bought the pack and I didnt receive any characters with it?


Maybe the download didn't work? You should be able to re-download any purchase by clicking "my library" under your name in the corner. Thanks!

I have bought these assets from you here on itch.io

Can you use these assets in any engine for commercial purposes? I have never downloaded anything from RPGMaker.

Yes, commercial use is fine! No restrictions! Thanks

combat animation?



Hi, what are the dimension? 32x32?

Just noticed that on your doors sheet the doors are bigger taller than the doors in your tile sheets. 

Hi, I'm a game developer and sell codecanyon templates. Could I buy the regular license and create games to sell the codecanyon templates? do you allow me to sell the source code of the game developed in codecanyon?

(1 edit)


My terms disallow redistribution, so you're not going to be able to package these with any sort of template. HOWEVER, people have asked similar things in the past, and generally I've allowed this:

If you need them for some sort of example project, and you need some minimum assets to include (like one character sprite to show a movement engine), then that's OK with me. In that case though I'd ask for you to link back to my itch page here so if your users want to get the rest of the set from me directly. 

If you have more specific ideas please send me an email.


How many frames are in the walk animation?

this is for rpgmaker most rpgmakers use 2 plus the neutral frame

Can't wait to make a game with these!

Love these! Great to have so many options for characters, and the emotes are really nice. Check their website for some free work to see if you like the style.

Good Day are they any running or jumping animations

I have made some extra animations for the base style. Some are here (http://finalbossblues.com/timefantasy/styleguide/) and others have been release on my Patreon. It's just the base though, not for every character, so you'd need to modify it to match the character(s) that you are using.

80 chars for MV or VX? or 40 from each?

Deleted post

Hi! I'm thinking about purchasing your asset pack, just have a few questions:) What size are the character sprites?

Can I recolor them so they match my color palette? I'm making a turn based rpg so I hope they will match well!

Thank you!



The character sprites are sized to fit with 16x16 base tiles-- they're about a tile and a half tall. The exact pixel dimensions vary.

Recoloring is OK! Any sort of recoloring or editing for use in your own project is welcome. Have fun!


Are any of these "doubles" of the sprites from the Future Fantasy set?

(1 edit)

No, the future fantasy set was an expansion that came later. Thanks!

EDIT: The future fantasy includes some characters from this set, but they are a bonus inclusion-- I added them to that set because they had futuristic-looking armor.

just purchased and noticed that several of the files themselves (just viewing in finder) have white boxes covering some of the artwork. can you please advise ?

These white boxes would appear in some of the "master" tilesets. they're spaces where you could add additional tiles from other expansions.

I can use this assets for create my own videogame? and i can sell it

Yes, you  can sell any game created using these assets.


Can you make an action rpg verson of sprits with attacks?

what size tiles are these?

I tried the free vampire sprites and it works great with my 16x16 tiles in unity definitely going to have to get them now

when will we get 8 directional characters?


Is it possible to purchase one set now and get a discount on the full bundle later?

I love to use this in my game, but we are low on funding at the moment.


Can I use this for a top down action rpg ?


There's nothing stopping you from using them for a zelda style game, I have seen people use them like that. But they don't include 4 directional attack animations and are are designed more for final fantasy RPG style. 


How about making a blog post about how to add a simple 4way attack to one of these? We can then try and do the rest on our own. Id like to use these for a top down arpg, but without 4way attack its a no-go

I guess not...

(1 edit)

If I get these from the RPGMaker guys, is the license for any Game engine or is it for RPGMaker only? I'm asking because you said that the RPGMaker version had the tileset and characters while these are separate here.

The RPG Maker DLC is limited to use in RPG Maker only. That's why it's a lower price on their website, because the terms have more restrictions.


Are these compatible with the RPG Maker MV?

Yes. :)

Hello, did you make a complete package under the order for the rpg maker vx ac

Hello, I really like your work. Do you think I can use it with unity?  Also, does the sprite sheet has combat in all directions ?(up, down, left, right)
