mash-up

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.

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.

charlie brown guardians of the galaxy

The characters from Charlie Brown fit right into any environment, and the art featured in Dorkly’s list of the best Charlie Brown mash-up pieces proves it. The illustrations feature Charlie Brown, Linus, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang in well-known television series, comics, and movies. The above image by Matthew J. Fletcher putting Charlie Brown into the role of Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy is perfect.

alpacamon_by_lopaki-d7tcx8y_header

The internet has a penchant for turning things into animals. We’ve seen Disney princesses as sloths, manatees dressed like superheroes, and now we have all the original Pokémon as alpacas. Why not? DeviantArt user Lopaki came up with the Alpacamon, and I’ve got to say that the makeover makes the pocket monsters even cuter. I want Alpacamon plushes!

harry potter scott pilgrim

YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has mad skills when it comes to putting together different franchises. He’s the genius behind the Star Wars cut to the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer mash-up, and now he’s sliced footage from all the Harry Potter films in Scott Pilgrim trailer style. It’s freaking brilliant. The addition of comic book style sound effect lettering pushes it over the top. I love it.

Watch the mash-up and the original Scott Pilgrim trailer after the break.

final_fantasy_7___pokemon_by_andrewryanart-d7gr6va

What if characters from Final Fantasy got confused and ended up as Pokémon trainers? It turns out they look like a natural fit. DeviantArt user Andrew Ryan put some thought into which type of trainers the character would become. For example, with Final Fantasy VII, he thought Barrett would be a good rock type Pokémon trainer since he grew up in a small mining town. Plus, I have to agree with Andrew that he looks cool with a Poké Ball arm launcher.

disney hogwarts 1

Though I like Harry, Ron, and Hermione plenty, seeing Disney characters in Hogwarts school uniforms makes me feel giddy. Disney has its own kind of magic and combining it with the world of Harry Potter means sparks! DeviantArt user Eira1893 came up with this crossover and created illustrations featuring over 20 characters in the school setting.

My favorite part, other than seeing the cute couples, is noting which house the artist sorted the characters into. Anna and Kristoff from Frozen are both in Hufflepuff while Ariel and Prince Eric are in Gryffindor. She goes into detail about her process for choosing the houses on some of the pieces at DeviantArt.

sesame street fighter

You never know where mash-up art will lead. DeviantArt user gavacho13 created an illustration pairing Sesame Street with Street Fighter, and now it’s a playable game. Thanks, internet! Game developer Cocoalasca took the idea and ran with it and recently made Sesame Street Fighter available.

The HTML5 game pits character combinations against each other. For example, Bert and Ryu are merged into one creature. You fight by being the first to type in a series of words. The concept is laugh out loud funny to me, and the game is kind of addictive.

Now, go forth and play Sesame Street Fighter!
