Can you imagine how much better the Mega Man 1990’s cartoon would have been if the entire show’s animation budget was consistent with the opening intro? Well, as much as you can knock the actual show for having hokey writing and slapstick action, the first 60 seconds were always awesome.
That’s why we like this 8-bit recreation from YouTube member ColoniaContraAtaca, who’s taken the entire clip and reanimated it in the style of something you might see from an older NES-era title. Heck, something like this would actually look appropriate for the downloadable titles like Mega Man 9 or Mega Man 10.
Actually, I changed my mind. Every episode that focused on Protoman (Blues) turning into a good guy was awesome, and the best one by far was the episode where Mega Man X showed up and started blasting the living bejeezus out of everything.
