When Worlds Collide by Didj When Worlds Collide by Didj
I have been wanting to do this picture for a long time. And you guys are lucky. Consistent bad weather has prevented me from going home this weekend. With my car firmly snowed into the parking lot, even traveling around base in this snow is not a casual endeavor. So I'm spending this weekend in front of my computer. Stepping out only on occasion to get some food at the mess. Gawd this weather is horrific.

Anyways, like I said, I've wanted to do this picture for a long time. Originally, it was going to be Link and Zero from the Megaman Zero series. But pairing Link against Samus just seemed more natural, they are both Nintendo characters after all. It was easy designing Link all sci-fi like. But designing a medieval armor version of Samus was rather tricky. I was going to go one step further by having sci-fi design of the Tri-force and a fantasy design of the Metroid symbol splashed against the backgrop going off in perspective, but it never turned out looking right.

Both are simply awesome, Link as a Techno-Knight and Samus as a kind of Armored Mage. Any chance you would make more of these crossovers?

Sci-fi Navi's programming in a nutshell:

while(;;)
{
   printf("\nHey!);
   printf("\nListen!);
}

This made my day. I've been looking for both a Sci-fi Link and a Medieval Samus for a while. This accomplishes both with a very cool flare.

This is absolutely one of the most awesomely ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.

I just love the touch of Link have the sci-fi getup and Samus having more of a fantasy look. That dragon arm cannon…! That Beamsword of Evil’s Bane…! That cape…! ROBO-NAVI.

You're a genius. Great idea, wonderful execution.

Mind you, if Link has access to the same tech that allows Samus to go Morph Ball, then that WOULD finally explain how he can carry so many items.

Link looks like he could be at the Pioneer's Hunters Guild. (PSO) :) And if Samus have all of her abilities, darknuts and iron knuckles would be no match for her!

This is awesome. I especially like the details, like the digital Navi (MAYBE WITH A MUTE BUTTON?!), the dragon arm cannon, and the visors on both of them. Well done.

Also, if you did just a background of the Triforce/the Metroid symbol by itself, that would be equally awesome. And I might pay for a print of such a thing... >>

I think that I can make up something on the spot for you...

If the science fiction Samus was raised by mystical bird people who gave her her armor, then it would stand to guess that the fantasy Samus was raised by a race of mystical dragon people. Be it dragon worshipers, dragon summoners, half dragon people, or actual dragons, take your pick. And they would have given her their magical dragon armor to take with into battle. The dragonfire cannon would contain within it a rare gem taken from the throat of an elder dragon's corpse and enhanced with magic runes.
