What do you get when you take 238 cut-outs of classic Super Mario and Mega Man sprite art and animate them as a stop-motion video across 1,245 photos? If you're fafonio of YouTube then you get this video of Nintendo's famous plumber fighting with Capcom's legendary blue bomber. Dirty tricks, power-ups, and a cameo from a special guest character abounds in this impressive creation made as part of fafonio's thesis. The first minute is taken up by a brief making-of explanation before the main feature begins. It's a fun sequence, but the final takeaway for me is that I really want to see Mega Man appear in the next Super Smash Bros. sequel.
