What, you thought Dragon Ball fans were busy playing Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Z: Xenoverse 2? Well, that’s true, but that hasn’t stopped a dedicated modding scene for 2007’s Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3. The Wii/PlayStation 2 fighter’s 161 characters are prime for tinkering, with the game’s Fusion Dance mechanic especially subject to left-field Frankenstein abominations. Pictured above is the community’s most recent and zaniest merger yet: Goku and beloved children’s icon Thomas the Tank Engine! Trust us: even after the fact, you’re not ready for the ensuing transformation!
Of course, that’s hardly the end of it — the likes of Pikachu, Dora the Explorer, and God of War‘s Kratos are itching for some action, but check out how this Goku/Santa Claus video incorporates a full-blown narrative! (Yes, that’s Frieza as The Grinch, albeit with Raditz’s voice.)
In case you’re wondering, not all these unholy fusions revolve around Dragon Ball’s protagonist; indeed, check out how the below horror-fest brings together movie icons Jason Voorhees and Freddy Kreuger against Chucky of Child’s Play fame.
There’s plenty of other hilarious examples, but we’ll instead direct you to the following half-hour compilation. What better way to spend your Mother’s Day?
