Popular animator Dillon ‘dillongoo’ Gu gave the Apex Legends characters an incredible new design by creating a hilarious fight scene all in the unique art style of fan-favorite anime RWBY.

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale features a wide cast of Legends each brimming with personality that doesn’t really show in the game, making dillongoo’s video an instant hit with fans of all kind.

Although brief, the 2-minute video shows almost the entire Apex Legends characters fighting through the isles of a cramped grocery store for none other than the final pudding left in stock.

Dillongoo YouTubeThe Apex Legends anime-inspired video shows new sides of the character’s unlike anything fans have seen before.

The video’s hysterical premise leads into Wraith being tipped off by the Voices in the Void that she had been spotted by an incoming foe.

After being tackled by Bloodhound, weapons fall from the ceiling of the store in front of Wraith just as a Lifeline and Pathfinder get the jump on the Interdimensional Skirmisher.

What follows is an action-packed sequence of Wraith doing all she can to make it to the checkout counter with the pudding in hand all the while showcasing the unique artform most notably used in RWBY.

Dillongoo himself was a part of the animation team at Rooster Teeth Productions, lending his talents to the third season of the hit American anime.

Fans will have to pause and look closer for all of the hilarious, small details dillongoo leaves throughout, including an Overwatch reference that gets meta really quick.

Apex Legends perfectly blended with anime inspirations

The video itself is nothing short of masterclass in using creative animation and merging it with thoughtful call backs to its source material.

From Wraith’s comical use of Dimensional Rifts to fool Lifeline to the characters’ voice lines being used intermittently in the animation, the animator went all out with this sequence.

Dillongoo tied up the video with an incredibly painful reminder for top Apex players, that no matter how well you do there will always be a Pathfinder to take the credit saying.

The Apex Legends community has been a thriving source of creative works, but dillongoo’s creation is definitely one of the best to come out in quite some time.

Demon Slayer cosplayer brings Nezuko in a box to life

Early on in the story, Nezuko Kamado is turned into a demon after surviving a brutal attack from a creature. A part of her new powers is the ability to shrink her body. To avoid being seen, the heroine travels in a box that is carried by her brother.

Cosplayer ‘aru.rinh’ went viral on Instagram after bringing the iconic plot point to real life. Photographer ‘muze‘ captured Zekia sitting in a box strapped to the back of an artist portraying her sibling, Tanjiro.

Adorably, her legs hang out of the wooden container as she sits snugly in the box. In the picture’s caption, she explained, “yes i do fit all the way into the box.”

In another shot posted to social media, aru.rinh gave viewers a full look at how detailed her costume really is. She faithfully created Nezuko’s signature pink yukata, including the red and white checkered sash around her waist. Zekia even included the character’s large leg wraps that go into her sandals.

The cosplayer also posed in an up-close portrait photo, and shows off how faithful her look is to the anime. In the series, the Kamado sibling’s eyes turn bright pink after being turned into a demon, which aru.rinh nailed effortlessly as her curly black hair falls on her shoulders.
