Stuntmen Recreate Fights Using Game Characters’ Combat Styles

A septet of stuntmen whom also happen to be fans of video games decided to combine their work with their pleasure and film a bunch of fight sequences. The video begins with Alex Iashioka dressed as one of the titular Assassins of the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise. Judging from the costume and the fact that he is skirmishing with men clad in attire and arms from America’s colonial period, it would seem this particular stuntman is fond of the Indo-British “Ratonhnhak√©:ton” or “Connor” from the third game in the main Assassin’s Creed series.

“Connor” beats up on several soldiers, using a musket as a cudgel until the camera shifts to one soldier taking aim with a pistol. It is at this point that the second character appears in the short. A camouflage-pattern-clad soldier known for an eyepatch, a “FOXHOUND” patch, and his skills in close-quarters combat sneaks up on the soldier and dispatches him with a throw. Matt Scheib is dressed as Solid Snake, of the Metal Gear franchise, and fights with several modern soldiers until Bill Bussey’s Geralt, from The Witcher, appears to stab a gunman aiming for Snake.

The video then jumps time zones again, this time with Geralt taking on several men dressed for the Crusades. Just as he’s dispatched the medieval mooks, a masked man menacingly points a sword at Geralt’s back, distracted long enough for Ben Aycrigg’s Nathan Drake, from the Uncharted series, to sucker punch the masked marauder. After shaking his hand from having punched a metal object, Nathan tussles with several mercenaries. After a gunfire battle involving hiding behind cover, Nathan remains crouched behind cardboard only for the sounds of blades cutting into men and men screaming to fill the area. Nathan looks over his shoulder to see a man flying through a neighboring barrier then lifts his head only to see Tang Ngyuen as an axe-wielding Kratos from the “God of War” series butcher everyone in sight.
