The Greatest Video Game Cat Fight of All Time


There’s pretty much nothing I can say that will prepare you for the awesomeness of the above video. Suffice it to say, it’s Dead Fantasy?an entirely fan-made machinema of the ladies of Final Fantasy and Dead or Alive beating the living shit out of each other in am 11-minute ballet of fantasy action so amazing John Woo would fall to his knees crying in shame.

In the first Dead Fantasy, it was Advent Children‘s Tifa and FFX-2‘s Rikku and Yuna versus DOA‘s Kasumi, Hitomi and Ayame; in this sequel, Ninja Gaiden‘s Rachel joins the DOA team, with FFVIII‘s Rinoa?complete with wings and Squall’s gunblade to mitigate her original uselessness?helps out her fellow FF girls. I highly suggest getting a second pair of underpants ready, as it’s entirely possible the video’s awesomeness will make you crap yourself. From one who knows.
