Kratos vs Ryu Hayabusa? Sign Us Up Now!
Let’s be honest, we all spent far too much time as kids pondering insane hypothetical fights. Could Superman beat up Batman? Was Sonic better with his fists than Mario? Silly stuff, but a topic of endless fascination all the same. Today, those aren’t questions we tend to ask – but we can’t help but have a look when someone goes ahead and provides the answer for us anyway.
Ninja Of War 2 pits Kratos, the hulking, rage-filled protagonist of the God Of War series, against Ryu Hayabusa, the cool and collected hero of Ninja Gaiden (and long-term stowaway on the good ship Dead Or Alive). We won’t spoil what happens, but it’s safe to say that if you’re familiar with the series in question, you’ll know that the results can only be spectacular.
The video is the work of MNOAlpha, a YouTube user whose work also spans Pokémon and other series. And if the concept of a CG battle crossover video seems a bit familiar, you’re right – the Dead Fantasy series by the late animator Monty Oum presented a very similar concept of Dead Or Alive characters and Final Fantasy characters having a scrap.
