I needed to do something where I don't need to think much, and a list was perfect for that purpose.

Many games use SV Battlers, but many want to use SV Enemies as well - now we face a problem. A huge problem:
SV Battlers are a huge amount of work, and not all artists can be mixed up. Some are hard to find, many have just one or few battlers and it is not very likely someone will fulfill requests in that section.

So, what are your possibilities?

I sorted them as sprited (~90% of that category can be combined among each other and match the default sv heroes best) and drawn (harder to combine, but some very pretty style options).

If you know additions to the list, let me know!

Sprited (RTP matching):

StrangeDragon99's SV Battlers
+ Very cute, come with matching on Map Sprites
- The style might clash with the RTP

Hiddenones SV enemies in her thread
+ Match the deafult battlers, new additions on weekly base
- Nothing. They are awesome!

RavenBlackbird's Sprited SV Enemies
+ Match the deafult battlers, from time to time new additions
- Be careful to credit every artist involved!

Pearsona's Monster SV Battlers

+ A cute Cerberus that matches the default Battler Design
- So far only one sprite

TTKOZ Freedom Project
+ Bat and Hornet match the default enemies
- So far only two sprites, doesn't seem to be expanded anymore

Haydeos Resource Collection with SV Battlers
+ Partly matching default Designs, cute style that improves over time (especially the newest rat is great!)
- especially the older ones might not fit the deafult battlers too well

AlephNull SV Enemies
+ Partly matching default Designs, well done skeletons that seem really useful for any RPG
- sadly no updated in quite a while

Ninjaconor's Dog SV Battler
+ many games need dogs
- just a single sprite

Avy's MV Stuff
+ This is me, I'm cool. Also, a few SV battlers that match the default style
- will probably not add too many more SV battlers

Sin's Wolf SV Battler
+ Cute poses and good animation
- The style might clash with the RTP

虚構の城跡 on LuckyDuet
+ Match the deafult battlers, well made
- Need to search through the board for new things as it is not everything in a single thread

魚圭@ENCOUNTERED!!! on LuckyDuet
Slime
+ Matchs the deafult slime, very cute
- just that single sprite

「雪乃です」ε-(´∀`; ) on Lucky Duet
Futuristic Robot
+ Useful for futuristic games or ares with technology
- there are hardly other robots in that style

ガルゴロン on Lucky Duet
Harpy(Base)
+ Pretty animation, the base allows you to create several different chars
- It is a base, you HAVE to create your own char

Drawn:
ShadowHawkDragon's Shade of Battlers
+ Large amount of very creative Battlers with cool designs
- It is really hard to find matching on-map Sprites

MogeMoge-Kun's Slimes
+ Cute small bubbly slimes
- Not all drawn style match each other and there are only those two slimes in there

Cassios SV Battler
+ cute style
- Not all drawn style match each other and there is just a single battler

Akashics SV Battlers
+ cute style, still expanded, many really creative designs
- terms make it hard to impossible to find matching on map sprites or someone to create them

Terrorchan's animated battlers

+ cute style
- Not all drawn style match each other and there is just a single animated battler

Yurudora's own styled SV Battlers
+ a huge collection of cute battlers, along with machting faces, sprites, etc.
- as most monsters are human like, you should use their heroes as well, that limits the design of your party (but since the designs are cool this is no huge downer)

Not ready to use, need edit or plugin (most probably edit):
Opengameart has a bunch of resources that can be edited into MV's Battler sheme
e.g.
Wolf Animation by William.Thompsonj
The blob by Redshrike
Troll by Craftpix
+ a wide collection of battlers, many different styles and settings covered
- hard to find what you exactly need, of most styles only few battlers

Holder's Battlers
+ a wide variation of stuff, good style and well done
- all in a format for RMVX/Ace, so you either need a plugin that allows different formats or you will spend quite a time with copy and paste

What a useful idea! Is it just me @Avery or is Thalzon not mentioned here?

The list is about animated battlers, that's why thalzon is not listed ;)

As I saw noone talking about it - Vibrato makes amazing SV monsters as well now!

(example images from his site)

Vibrato's large monster battlers

+ they are amazing, the collection is growing and they match the RTP and come with recolors
- nothing really, if I was nitpicky I would say some don't match the default small SV battlers but... whatever

@Avery Thank you so much for compiling this list! It led me to the Harpy Base on Lucky Duet and introduced me to other SV Battler artists I was unaware of. A quick note though, because this was made years back, but the first on the list -StrangeDragon99's-their forum is closed and they deleted their own posts/images. Thought you should know so you can edit the page.

Got distracted... again. So now I'm on project.... 5? 6? I can't even remember off the top of my head how many plugins I have in the works. Though I blame the latest two on a coding youtuber I watch occasionally. He codes in C++ but walks through the process well enough that it inspires me to do similar things for JS plugins. So... blame him for my lack of activity. lol
It's my birthday today! Mom and I went to my favorite Japanese restaurant for lunch and they gave me a Japanese dessert as a birthday surprise. Their salad is SO GOOD. Now we're back home chilling!
Game Theory is great to practice and all... but it is zero substitute for playtesting a game and saying, "Am I having fun?".

Here's this for an idea I might do: A Touhou RPG set in the universe of the Hoi4 mod "The New Order: Last Days of Europe". Expect BurgSys Yukari, the Great Fairy Trial, and funni clock Flandre
