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.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
