This idea had crossed my mind before, but I was previously hesitant to try and bring it to fruition since I had never digitally drawn the likeness of a preexisting character before and wasn’t confident in my ability to make them look right, even by the very loose standards of this meme, and it took a prolonged period of extreme boredom, in which I haven’t been able to work on any videos due to long-term technical issues, to get me to go ahead and take a shot at it. Needless to say, it turned out looking considerably better than I’d anticipated and was very fun and cathartic to make; now that I know the ease of the drawing aspect involved, I may very well make more meme images of a similar technical nature to this going forward…

Just a pair of filler images that I took the opportunity to make the other day when I saw “Oh, the humanity”/“Oh, the huge manatee” trending on KYM.

Also, I’m aware that the pun “Oh, the Hugh Manatee” has been made and visualized multiple times before (based on a Google search which indeed has more than a few results), but as far as I’m aware, mine is the first plural version, and was definitely the first iteration to be posted on KYM. “Humana tee”, meanwhile, is one that no one else has previously thought of, or posted at any rate, to my knowledge

…And in the event that he somehow does, I will - as I’ve promised elsewhere before, and I quote - eat my shoe.

In all seriousness, as a Smash fan with ridiculously high personal standards for what I want to see in the future, this is really the one common suggestion of a new third-party franchise (which is basically all I want to see going forward) that gets me irrationally annoyed for a few reasons; rant incoming:

1. It’s just not legally feasible; Nintendo would have to reach out to make an unprecedented cross-licensing agreement with Disney, who are of course notoriously protective of their properties, such that it’s honestly an anomalous miracle that Kingdom Hearts itself exists as is.

2. In the event of Square Enix contributing again, what they need to add is, without question, more Final Fantasy content, as it’s the most underutilized franchise currently playable in SSB by a glaringly massive margin, and the original elements of Kingdom Hearts comprise what is, for all intents and purposes, a Final Fantasy storyline, which raises the question of why someone would choose to vouch for an iteration of the franchise that’s tied up with all kinds of licensing issues from Disney over the dozen-plus other iconic Final Fantasies that have no such legal complications and frankly have far better stories and characters much more often than not.

3. I find it hypocritical that the fandom which is generally so vehement against the inclusion of any content not specifically from video games, such as exemplified by the image from which most of the composite text shown here is taken (I’ll trust you probably know the one, provided you’re an invested fan who pays attention to memes such as this), would present such high demand for a property that comes inextricably bundled with such content.

4. Regarding anyone and everyone who is suggesting that Kingdom Hearts be used without any Disney elements whatsoever, my oft-repeated analogy is that doing so would be like adding a character from Guitar Hero and including no music whatsoever.

…Unironically.

I also know that as of this post the new Ariel hasn’t actually been confirmed not to be redheaded, and if she actually is I will be very pleased, and the whole ridiculous controversy about her, which feels like it’s been around for a very long time considering that the film doesn’t even have a trailer as of yet, will look even stupider in hindsight.

Also TMW Starfire, the one redheaded character whom they gave a black actress but got her hair color right, still looks the worst out of all four just on account of an ugly general design.

Inspired by my own current experiences with the right-most game, which I honestly never thought was all that bad to begin with, and has admittedly improved the least of these three as a simple matter of the least time having passed with it, but by all appearances, it has the long-term support behind it to ensure that it will only continue to get better.

Honorable mention: Star Wars Battlefront 2

Special thanks again to Fruzmig; without her artwork, realizing this video would have been very much infeasible. Likewise to Skeep Tieel, and I would say the same for Timothy Brandolino as well, but he sadly seems for whatever reason to have dropped off the face of the internet sometime shortly after he recorded this, which is a shame as he certainly did a serviceable job of “talking to himself” on this track.

Here’s again stressing thanks to ThatTacoDude for instigating the correspondence that lead to this battle’s creation. As of the audio’s completion, the verdict is still out on whether he’ll help with any visual aspects of the video, but if he does, then it might likely end up coming to fruition potentially even soon enough to be the next upload on my YouTube channel.

Another super-big battle, initially conceived as a vicious skewering of my most hated book that I ever had to read in school but ultimately ending up as more of a straight parody, which may be for the better anyway.

Plus, it’s far from all just about Orwell or even Orwell and one other source, as I also got to incorporate:

• A familiar (half-obscured) face making his triumphant comeback.

• A great literary antihero for whom 1984 would have been much better if it had included someone similar.

• A character from one of the few books taught in school that I actually kind of LIKE, a perfect sympathetic counterpart to the pure evil of Big Brother and, the more I think about it, possibly one of my favorite antagonists ever.

Lastly: Gotta love that thumbnail.

This rather obvious and elsewhere-established matchup was suggested by my very good friend Austin Thurmand, and the reason I ended up making it given that prompt was for the third-party, who I was already planning to use in a less serious context (Vs. I.M. Meen) which was eschewed in favor of this, though obviously his voice is still in YTP format.

SHODAN is probably my mother’s best performance in my series to date.

A super-quick battle by my lengthy standards, though considerably more intense in subject matter than Eds Vs. Warners, consider this Season 3′s equivalent to Gaston Vs. Hans.

Rango is an awesome film; at the time I first saw it, I declared it to be my new favorite movie ever, and although I will now recant that overly bold statement, I still really, really like it. Rattlesnake Jake is a great villain; not a very complex character, but extremely badass and cool in appearance and manerisms. In this regard, I’d even call him better than Boba Fett. As for Jake “The Snake” Roberts, I knew almost nothing about him going into making this battle, but after researching him and watching his matches and promos, I can say that he’s pretty awesome as well, both as a staged character and as an interesting real person. I decided to give him the last word in the battle based on the factor of him having a greater quantity of history.

Moleman’s Epic Rap Battles Season 3 cements its landing with its second episode and first “small” battle, in this case serving as something of a breather after the intensity and/or dark subject matter of the past several battles.

Similarly to Aang Vs. Ben, both of the parties in this battle are respectable, but one is simply so incredibly good that it ends up making the other look poor in comparison when it would look good in conjunction with almost anything else. Animaniacs is quite possibly the greatest animated series of all time; definitely in the Top 10.

A short and sweet one-on-one battle amid a season and series full of much more elaborate ones, the logic behind this idea was very simple, but the resulting matchup turned out very unique and “well-meshing” regardless. Though I seldom actually played any growing up, the puzzle-based adventure games of old have fascinated me just about as long as I’ve been using the internet, and I spent a great many hours watching video playthroughs (and death reels) from the King’s Quest games in cinematic fashion back in the day. The reasons for their nostalgic belovedness are apparent, and there are very few series for which that can be said based only on indirect experiences with them. Plus, I immensely respect the series’ fandom for their brilliant professionally-made remakes, as I also do the Sierra company for being largely okay with their distribution.

Last thoughts on this battle: I particularly like the instrumental I used both as a general tune and in terms of how it fits the subject matter here, and both Darren (Guybrush) and David (Graham) did awesome vocal jobs per usual.

The Season 2 premiere, though not actually the first to be released due to recording scheduling issues, this is the only straight-up rematch/sequel you’ll ever see from me, and fittingly enough, it is a follow-up to the most unique of my early matchups.

To be honest, this actually isn’t one of my favorites. In hindsight, it isn’t really as “epic” as I thought it was while making it, and the sound is also pretty iffy here. The only part here that I absolutely love is Steve Urkel’s finishing verse.

Also, if anyone was wondering, the “reason” for Geno’s appearance is that he follows the same connection held between Sally and Mega Man in the first place, i.e. none whatsoever. I tried to think of the most random thing possible to use and went with Geno since I’d wanted to use him but couldn’t think of a conventional matchup for him.

The first of my second “wave” of battles after something of a hiatus following Penelope Vs. Gadget, this is where I first became serious about producing a large series of these things, evidenced by my switch to the in-video title of “Moleman’s Epic Rap Battles” as opposed to “Epic Rap Battles of History… (Fanmade.)”, a gag that was cute for my first few videos but had run its course.

This is also where I first brought the lovely Anna Valenzuela on board with my series.

These two are probably among the least-worthy, most obscure characters I’ve ever used, but the connection of their names was simply too good to pass up.

Gotta love that image (unfortunately not mine) that ended up being the thumbnail.

Sally Acorn Vs. Mega Man… now what can I say about this one? Obviously (okay, maybe not so obviously, I’m not a real web celebrity or anything) and somewhat surprisingly in hindsight, this always has been and continues to be one of my most successful battles, and is considered my “signature” matchup, mainly because it was such a random combination of characters that no one else would have ever thought to put together. Sally’s victory here has been the most common such topic of comments I’ve gotten across all of my MERB videos, which I guess I can attribute to the battle being unfairly designed, but probably also has something to do with my deliberately whiny, childish Mega Man voice.

Fun fact: I originally intended to make this as Sally Acorn Vs. Mrs. Brisby, and even started production (writing and video-assembly) on it in that form, but I found that I couldn’t satisfactorily write for Brisby, something that I could probably pull off now if I were to go on and use her in another context…

Another classic, though this one is more-so in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way. Mister Ed’s outrageous lines make this probably my second-most audaciously offensive battle ever as well, next to Michael Rosen Vs. Jim Dale.

This was actually the first major idea I ever came up with, and I even made the cover image for it well before making Gwen Vs. Daria, at the time not yet intending to write and produce it as an actual battle.
