Zelda-Mashup-Game-of-Thrones-Intro

This isn’t the first Zelda-themed reworking of the Game Of Thrones intro, but it might be the best. This time, the focus is on the Link to the Past world map.

Maybe HBO should talk to Nintendo about making that live action version of Zelda that everyone wants.

Check out the intro after the break…

minion-fast-furious

When the crew of The Fast & The Furious needs to pull of a big fast-paced heist, they call the Minions! Crazy stunts, super fast cars, and general shenanigans are familiar territory for these little guys. With both movies coming to theaters this summer, the mash-up video is all action-packed and super cute.

Watch the video after the break.

dalek - sailor moon

I’ve yet to be scared by Daleks in Doctor Who. They’re clunky, and unless there are large quantities of them closing in, I’m not impressed. I do appreciate their iconic design though, and Kelly, a.k.a. egyptianruin on DeviantArt, has mashed the Doctor’s enemy together with some cute characters – like Sailor Moon! Daleks look good with blonde hair. Who knew?

This and other 2.5 inch Dalek figures by Kelly were made from polymer clay and hand-painted. She created them for MAGFest a few years ago.

See a few other Dalek mash-ups after the break.

hanna_barbardians_of_the_galaxy_by_jayfosgitt-d8ckdmm

Hanna-Barbera released some cartoon gems back in the day, didn’t they? The Smurfs, The Jetsons, and The Flintstones are just a few of them. Artist Jay P. Fosgitt is a fan of those old school cartoons and decided to mix ‘em up with a little Guardians of the Galaxy. Behold, Hanna Barbardians of the Galaxy! Fosgitt explains:

The Guardians of the Galaxy, envisioned as a 1970’s Hanna Barbera cartoon. That’s teenage Pebbles and Bamm Bamm as Gamora and Star Lord, Muttley as Rocket, Captain Caveman as Drax, and Grape Ape as Groot. I added a distressed texture to give this piece a vintage “garage sale” look.

I would watch a show with these characters for hours and hours – possibly instead of the official Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon we’re getting this year.

iron man

Pause for a moment and think about all the superhero films and television series in the works, currently airing, and already in your DVD/Blu-ray collection. You’re making out like a bandit whether you’re a fan or Marvel or DC. YouTube user Alex Luthor took that happy feeling we all get from seeing our favorite heroes and villains on screen and turned it to 11 by making a trailer that imagines what it would be like if Marvel and DC characters played in the same universe.

It pulls from both movies and television, and Luthor did a tremendous job editing together battles from The Avengers, The Flash, Man of Steel, Thor, and more to make it appear as though Marvel and DC characters are facing off.

Watch the awesomeness in the video after the break.

lego mash-ups 3

If you have a pile of LEGO minifig parts in front of you, it’s only natural to mix them up and see what happens. Artist Alexandre Tissier came up with some perfect mash-ups for a Fiction Meets Fiction campaign for LEGO. He’s got Homer Simpson as Wolverine, Spider-Man as James Bond, Darth Vader as a geisha, and Batman in pajamas and holding a teddy bear. I feel compelled to make these designs a reality.

See more funny swaps after the break.

disney smash bros 1

What if Disney characters starred in Nintendo games? By the looks of this art from Michael Villamejor, it would be awesome. He mashes up characters from Disney films with ones from Smash Bros., and it results in combinations like Stitch as Pikachu and Robin Hood as Star Fox. I can barely handle the brilliance of these pixels.

See more of the creative and cute series after the break.

pikachu thor

Calm down and don’t fret because The Wiivengers are here to save the day. YouTuber James Farr has created a version of The Avengers starring heroes from the Nintendo universe. Link is a great Captain America (I want to see that cosplayed!), Pikachu is Thor, Mario is Iron Man – you get the idea. They have to stop Loki from ruining everything, and the animation is cute and fun.

Watch the mash-up after the break.

guardians destiny

Once you get past the sad beginning, Guardians of the Galaxy moves into a happy and fun intro. Peter Quill dancing around to “Come and Get Your Love” is one of the most memorable scenes of the film, and YouTuber Somewhat Awesome Games decided to pair it up with the newly released video game Destiny. The edit features a hero from Destiny dancing a la Star-Lord, and it’s on the nose.

Watch the cool mash-up after the break.

gym_leader_elsa_by_isaiahstephens-d73qtg7

What if the characters of Frozen were actually Pokémon Gym Leaders? They are in art imagined by Isaiah Stephens, and they look like they were made for the roles. He illustrated Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Hans as members of the Gym in the game, and I hope cosplayers run with these costume designs and that they also manage to recruit or capture some pocket monsters.

See more of Stephens’ work after the break.
