RPG Character Template

Back to my Shop-page

About this Assetpack:

These animations are a perfect starting point for bringing your own characters to life. A lot of the very tedious setup work is done, and you can easily edit in your own characters details and weapons.

This assetpack contains over 500 frames of animation.
You get a male template (Pete) and a female template (Cathe) both with ~40px height.

(the female sprite differs from the male sprite by: different eyes, slightly thinner arms, wider hips, different underwear + chest area)

Both Templates come in 4 different skin colors.

A separated cast shadow can be applied

This assetpack also contains a fully animated sword which can get equipped and unequipped for both characters as starting point for a paperdolling system.

The sword comes additionally with 8 projectile frames.

Graphics Included:

  • normal idle (2 loops á 8 frames, 3 directions - blinking and without blinking)
  • fight idle (2 loops á 8 frames, 3 directions - blinking and without blinking)
  • walk (2 loops á 4 frames, 3 directions - normal & with angry eyes)
  • run (2 loops á 6 frames, 3 directions - normal & with angry eyes)
  • fist attack (2 frames, 3 directions)
  • light attack (4 frames, 3 directions)
  • heavy attack (5 frames, 3 directions)
  • hit (1 frame, 3 directions)
  • sitting (1 frame, 3 directions)
  • dead (1 frame)

Note: 3 directions means that you are supposed to mirror the east/west directions. So in fact all 4 major cardinal directions (N, W, S, E) are covered!


  • a sprite atlas for every skin color / sword / shadow
  • each file as single strip / image (.png) - optimally named for Yoyo GameMaker

Hey, the pack looks very interesting. Though I would love to have a casting animation. Do you have any plans to add some? 

Added it to the wishlist. I am adding constantly new elements to the assetpacks or work on new ones, which work with the old ones.

It says fluidly animated in 3 directions, is it not animated in the left direction? Just a bit confused. Cause for top down game would need top left right and down. Thanks in advance for the response.

It is animated in 3 directions because there are 3 uniquely made animations.

For left / right a simple mirorring does the trick and that's how most topdown games handle it.

If I'd say 4 directions this would mean that the sword would need to be uniquely animated for the 4th direction, which is not the case for this template. The sword will flip the hand - again that's how it is handled in most games.

This is the best character pack I've seen. It is well worth the purchase. 

These are so good. I need something like this for an 8 dir sprite.


Hey Boar Games,

Thanks, I am glad that you like them.

Probably at some point those will get an update with more directions / an iso set with the same proportions which complete it to an 8 set, however in the foreseeable future, I don't think this will happen.

No problem, thanks for the response and all the great updates.


Looks great! any plans on doing something similar for a platformer?

also, is there any way to contact you for discussing small commission work or consulting? 

No plans yet to do something like that for platformers in the foreseeable future.
Sure you can find a contact in the licence agreement.

A side-scroller/platformer set is now available.

bought :)


Wow, dude, these look great :)

thanks a lot, glad you are liking the quality =)
