Ryu From Street Fighter Fights Captain America in This Animation, Because It's Cool

By Julie Muncy on at

Ryu’s been getting around lately. Sure, yeah, he’s in Street Fighter. But he’s also in Smash Bros. And he’s a Power Ranger? And now he’s a Lego man, fighting Captain America?

That’s what happens in this cute little stop-motion fight scene, via LEGO Empire on YouTube. The fight scene, which shows Ryu struggling against the implacable good-person-powers of Captain America and his sweet shield, took about ten hours to film, according to the video description, with an additional thirty hours of editing.

That’s a lot of work for what is essentially a forum argument made flesh. Or, well, plastic. And that’s why I love it, honestly.
