John Wick can be seen thrashing hordes of assassins in Parabellum, but one fan recreated the ex-hitman in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure style since he shares a strange connection to the titular family name.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has received critical acclaim throughout the years and has been an influential anime since being created. It was only natural for two fan-favorite franchises to converge at one point, resulting in an awesome crossover piece.

In a Reddit post, artist Ted Ryan revealed an astonishing fan creation that took The Reaper and painted him in the anime creator’s style which makes Wick look all the more menacing, if it were even possible.

Ryan’s version of Wick is a true reimagining of the assassin complete with his iconic clean suit which is perfectly contrasted by the arsenal of weapons he tends to carry around.

Though what is interesting is that Ryan didn’t include a Stand for his Wick creation, leaving onlookers to fill in the gaps that perfectly round out the assassin’s design.

“Stand: Here Comes Revenge (Metallica),” Reddit user Shingekyo said. “[Here Comes Revenge] does not manifest as a normal Stand. However it gives the user an unlimited knowledge of martial arts, weaponry, war tactics, and inhuman reflexes. The stand can activate itself at will, however generating feelings of revenge to the user will activate it automatically.”

How is John Wick a part of the JoJo lineage?

According to artist Ted Ryan, his artwork was inspired by a May 19 tweet from a parody Twitter account posing as show creator Araki Hirohiko which highlighted the fact that the John Wick movie franchise technically stars a JoJo.

Setting aside the abhorrent dog abuse in both the movies and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, the two share a deeper similarity after realizing what John Wick’s real name actually is.

“John Wick’s real last name is Jovanovic that makes him a Jojo,” the parody account said.

While some fans might raise their brow at trying to make the relation, the connection was more than enough to inspire Ryan to create his incredible piece of fanart.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
