Many, Many Mega Men by captainslam Many, Many Mega Men by captainslam
It started as a cure for boredom at work, and then I just got obsessed. If you include the turret and companion cube from Portal, there are 100 classic, famous, or otherwise significant video game characters depicted in the original classic Mega Man format that we all know and love so much. I'll take requests for future updates if anyone thinks of somebody cool I left off!

To see it in all its massive, full-size glory, click it to make it bigger, then right click and select "Open in New Tab." You should be able to zoom in beautifully then. Pixels the size of gorillas.

As a response to anyone who thinks I am pirating sprites, I do NOT claim to have designed the original Mega Man sprite after which these are patterned. However, I DID build each of these myself (meaning I didn't just recolor some image I found on google).

Is it ok to make bead sprites of your work? Did you do the Ninja Turtles?

Hey there! Would it be ok if I used a few of these sprites for a video I'm working on? I'll credit you and post a link to this page.

You should add Resident Evil, Splinter Cell, Ninja Gaiden, Pokemon, Kirby, Tekken, Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive, Virtua Fighter, Tomb Raider, Pac-man, Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, Spyro, Kingdom Hearts, Golden Sun, No More Heroes, Killzone, Call of Duty, Dead Rising, Fire Emblem, Persona, Tales series, Phoenix Wright, Professor Layton, and that's pretty much all I can think of. I also just randomly wrote all that I can think of. I'm pretty sure you don't know every single series I just named. Also not every one of these are that popular anyway. I still love this pic!

Hey thanks for the suggestions! I'll give you a little update on the ones you've suggested.
Firstly, a handful of those have actually already been added in this one: [link] The ones you mentioned that were added were Resident Evil 4, Splinter Cell, Ninja Gaiden, more Pokemon, Tomb Raider, Pac-Man, Spyro, Kingdom Hearts, No More Heroes, Call of Duty, Dead Rising, Fire Emblem, Phoenix Wright, and dozens more.
The ones you've suggested that aren't on there are either on my big to-do list, or they've already been added to a spread I haven't released yet.
So far, in addition to the ones in that newer version that is openly available on my page, I've also done sprites for Bubsy, Snoopy's Flying Ace, Animal Crossing, Deus Ex, Thief, Rocket Knight, Red Steel 2, Red Faction, Castlevania, Toejam and Earl, Scribblenauts, Shenmue, more Uncharted, Commander Keen, Resistance, Killzone, Jet Set Radio, Professor Layton, Chrono Trigger, Golden Sun, Quake, Prototype, Bionic Commando, more Halo, more Resident Evil, and a crapton of Batman characters. I'll be posting it once I've tackled more of the requests =)

I saw the picture with the 200 Characters on Pikigeek. They are fantastic. You have to made a Ultra High Res Version of it. I want it as a poster on my wall!

haha i saw this on kotaku so now you are really famous

but then you can never go wrong with video game characters and megaman especially since well you put pretty much every good character in there. i cant find anyone missing. i loled about gears of war because i once did a markus fenix which i based on megam an as well and it reminds me a lot of what i did so lol sympathy

also i love you for having put isaac clar in there. i would have been disappointed if he wasnt there.
really great work. just sonics and tails nose next to his pupil give one pupile the look of TWO pixels while the other one is just one pixel width so they kinda look retarded- its hilarious though

They are all so awesome - the hardest thing to do is pick out a favorite.... I really dig them all. I guess I will say Banjo & Kazooie, I like the pose. Man so killer. I bet you could do just about any character in that format with your eyes closed now XD
