Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Content Creator Recreates Famous Scenes In-Game

It’s weird how rare machinimas are nowadays, isn’t it? The art form of animating stories with real-time video game footage used to be one of the most dominant forms of entertainment on the early web. Anything from Quake to Garry’s Mod could be the canvass on which the internet's next viral video would be created. The practice was a gaming fandom keystone in its own right that has since been all but abandoned because we can’t have nice things (or because actual animation software became more accessible).

One of the worst side-effects to come from this has been that what few artists the medium still has have been woefully underappreciated as of late, so we’re doing our part today by showcasing “Armenaut”; An artist who’s been using his talents and his copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to create short videos that recreate famous scenes from classic movies and TV shows (and also X-Men: Apocalypse).

These recreations include the death of Mufasa in The Lion King, the death of the titular robot in The Iron Giant, and most recently, Krillin’s death at the hands of Frieza in Dragon Ball Z. What we’re getting at here is that there’s a lot of death in these videos.



The best part of Armenaut’s videos is that despite using alternative camera angles and audio from outside works, he moves the characters with animations already found within the game itself. Half the fun comes from seeing how he matches the various Smash Bros.’ movesets with the original scenes, especially with how surprisingly on-point they end up being.

Armenaut has been making amazing videos like this for over a year. We encourage all Smash fans, cinephiles, and everyone else interested in this unique form of online entertainment to give him a follow on Twitter to keep up with their impressive content. They also have a Youtube channel which only has about 300 subscribers as of now that we also recommend you subscribe to.

It would be cool to see someone recreate this scene from One Piece in Smash with Bowser with a baseball bat and Min Min:


Because you know, Bowser is the most similar looking Smash character to Kaido and Min Min being the only fighter in Smash that can stretch their arms out far away like Luffy does.

Ack! I'm at the Zou arc and I already know who you mean with the Bowser comparison haha. My fault for watching ahead of course.
