The Super Smash Bros. of Television

(click for huge size)

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a few days now. I’m currently playing my advance copy of Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale, that systems version of Super Smash Bros.

It got me thinking, what if someone made a similar game with a bunch of the most badass characters from TV? Well, it might look something like SUPER BADASS TV BROS. which I’ve attempted to render above.

I don’t have the artistic talent to draw out an actual fight, but this is what I imagine the character select screen might look like. Below, I’ve posted each character and what I think would be their “Finisher” move that draws from their character. Check out the image above and the list below:

Gob Bluth

Finisher: The Sword of Destiny – Gob summons a magic sword to chop his opponent’s hands off.

Tyrion Lannister

Finisher: Vengeance of the Hill People – Tyrion rallies his allies to mob his opponent

River Tam

Finisher: Activation – River’s true nature is awakened and with eyes closed, puts a dozen bullets into her opponent.

Omar Little

Finisher: Omar Comin! – Omar barrels toward his opponent tearing them apart with repeated shotgun blasts.

Rick Grimes

Finisher: The Herd – Zombies ignore Rick and swarm his opponent

Walter White

Finisher: Biohazard – Walt throws on his hazmat suit while the arena floods with toxic meth fumes, killing his opponent.

Jesse Pinkman

Finisher: The Tub – Jesse throws his opponent in a tub where they dissolve in acid.

Sydney Bristow

Finisher: Hacked – Sydney reboots the game, and when it comes back on, you’ve lost.

Jax Teller

Finisher: Harley – Jax mounts his motorcycle and runs over his opponent repeatedly.

John Locke

Finisher: The Smoke Monster – Old Smokey comes to help Locke finish his opponent by grabbing them and bashing them into the ground.

Jack Bauer

Finisher: There’s No Time! – Jack fails to disarm a nuke buried beneath his opponent’s feet.

Dexter Morgan

Finisher: The Table – Dexter immobilizes his opponent in plastic wrap and impales their heart.

Dwight Schrute

Finisher: Which Bear is Best? – A group of black bears maul Dwight’s opponent.

Ron Swanson

Finisher: The Heart Attack – Ron summons various meats to rain down from the heavens on his opponent.

Al Swearengen

Finisher: Whoremaster – Al’s prostitutes come and seduce his opponent, right before he slits their throat with a broken bottle.

    what a great idea… I imagine so well Dexter giving his opponent a spin (like Kabal in Mortal Kombat) to warp him quickly in plastic!

  • wevs

    The concept is cool, but those moves are pretty lame. Kind of like something they would come up on Celebrity Deathmatch.

  • Rob

    This is the best idea I’ve ever heard

  • Eastcoaster

    No Richard Harrow?

  • Frank

    I think Spartacus is missing from this roster.

  • Johannes P Anderson

    This must happen

  • Michael

    I would probably include Vic Mackey, and at least Tony Soprano.

  • banko

    Great as Tyrion is, almost anybody else would have been a better replacement. Also throw in Raylan Givens from Justified, Adama from Battlestar Galactica, and Buffy/ Angel.

    Jack Bauer

    Finisher: jack says ‘Damn It!!’ And everyone else takes a drink and passes out.

  • Arghhhh how did I forget Spartacus?

  • Nick D Pags

    How did you forget Lancel Lannister?
    Just kidding, I mean Jamie.

    Also Daryl > Rick. Jus sayin.

  • Rob J

    Man I wish this was a real game!
