The background is non-transparent to match the original sprite's opacity. This game, as you already know, uses colour FF0084 (255R, 0G, 132B) as a transparency key. As an archivist, I cannot alter the original state of the sprite.
GooRoo, if I may make some suggestions:
MegaZIPper contains the trojan identified as "TR/ATRAPS.Gen2". Please follow this guide to proceed with the removal of this trojan, and possibly other malware.
For a replacement archive viewer/editor/extractor, please consider using 7-zip.
I personally use GiftedMotion for animated GIF creation, which is capable of setting a custom transparency key colour.
Point #1: Neither MalWareBytez nor ZoneAlarm complain about MegaZIPper. Perhaps an older (or newer) version than the one I have has been infected.
Point #2: I try to avoid anything requiring an archiver, so would not acquire another unless it were the only program capable of unpacking something I acquire (also very unlikely).
Point #3: I will investigate GiftedMotion, since AdvancedGIFAnimator doesn't seem to be responding to e-mails.

Simply for (my) ease of use (and for download sizes) I would say 34 archives, named as the source material was named. There really is no good naming possible for individual frames in an animation, so "Frame01" ... "Framenn" is just as good as any.
Okay, sure. I took the liberty of renaming the archives to describe their contents and prefix my username, but the contents of each archive remain untouched.
The Cutting Room Floor is a wiki that aims to catalog unused and debug content found within video games, covering an enormous variety of platforms and genres.
Each of the Grunt Spritez links provide an invisible download. The file to be unZIPped magically appears in your download folder, appearing that nothing happened.
The post containing 4 Gauntletz Gruntz in attacking mode do not seem to be usable ... because they are all one file, not four individual animations. When I downloaded them before, I obviously was unsuccessful in separating them, and probably deleted the file. But I will re-download it and see if I can fare better in my advanced age.
