Mario vs. LocoRoco

June 26, 2019

Y’all like that Akira? Listen, this one isn’t gonna set the world on fire but the idea tickled me in the right places and I’m always down for Akira homages.  And with this one, I’ve caught up to the once a month schedule I set myself for these fights....

Mario vs. Viewtiful Joe

May 27, 2019

Bring Viewtiful Joe back, you cowards. I initially tried to do that JoJo’s punch rush thing with this one (you know, Mach Speed) but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be here. I’m still trying to find the right one to put that in. Maybe Chun’s lightning legs. 

Mario vs. Master Higgins

May 19, 2019

I told myself I’d do these once a month this year but so far this is my 3rd one. I’m falling behind here but I aim to rectify that. This is Master Higgins from Adventure Island. Honestly, this game probably wasn’t great? But hey, I have fond memories of...

Mario vs. Agent 47

March 1, 2019

Yo, Hitman is goooood. I was going for something with the perspective here but I’m not sure I got there. Drawing is hard.  Based Mario’s room loosely on the Mario RPG version. Feeling Ruby Heart next. 

Mario vs. Elta

January 14, 2019

Magician Lord was the first Neo-Geo game and, though I’ll be the first to admit I was never a huge fan of it, I’ll always have a soft spot for SNK and the games on that console. So here’s to you, Elta. (Magician Lord is also a pretty cool...

Mario vs. CATS

November 28, 2018

I’ve been dying to do this one for months. CATS (from Zero Wing) might have only had a grand total of 3 sprites ever but he will forever live in all of us dammit!

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

October 30, 2018

75th fight in the bank! Crazy to think that I’ve done so many. It’s been super fun and, no worries, I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Have a lot of interesting ones planned out and I might loosen some of my personal rules when it comes to these....

Mario vs. Gum

June 25, 2018

I’ve been working on the layout for this one as early as last year. I’ve done at least 5 other fights since I first started working on this. It’s been tough. The poses weren’t there for starters so I kept putting it on the backburner. Needless to say, I’m...

Mario vs. Gungrave

April 25, 2018

So this is extremely busy but it’s kinda what I was going for. That’s why I skipped the background (which is always a blessing for me). It’s funny, soon after I started thinking about this, they announced Gungrave VR which, presumably, will lead to some more Gungrave stuff. We’ll...

Mario vs. Hollow Knight

February 3, 2018

I loooved Hollow Knight and I’ve been wanting to do this piece since I played it last year. Thought about setting it in the dreamscape (or whatever it’s called) because it looks so cool or in the Colosseum because I thought it’d be cool to have Mario fight HK...
