The lights are on
Two of gaming's most iconic space commandos are together at last. Given how little both of these characters talk in their games, and how stupid it is when they do, you'd have to imagine this meeting unfolding with an awkward handshake, foot shuffling, and lots of drama filled pauses in a pointless conversation about oddly shaped space rocks.
The picture above by Deviant artist FantasyAce depicts an epic battle most gamers would want to see. Given the pose they are in – both using each other as leverage – I really to see Samus transform into morph ball mode, causing Master Chief to tumble hilariously to the ground. Check out FantasyAce's gallery for other video game-inspired artwork, including two amazing Zelda pieces.

if they had a baby it would be......
I thought Haloid gave birth to the name Master Chick, since it was a female in the armor and not Master Chief. Am I thinking of the same video, or am I crazy?
so, if i recall right, other m is the first game that samus talks. the article states that they both sound stupid when they talk. does that mean samus is stupid in other m? this doesnt bode well...
This is art. Go Samus!
These were new pants too...
there should be a game with both these characters as the protagonists. but wait...nintendo wont put samus on a 360, and microsoft wont put master chief on the wii...I'VE GOT IT! PLAYSTATION 3! lol
The accuracy and detail on this piece is great! Every time I see great work I get inspired to draw again.
so badass,thats so my wallpaper.
You know when you think of how they don't talk(including Gordon Freeman) you just think why. It's not like they could lose an argument or a fight.
Man I wish I could make art as awesome as this... Seems to me that FantasyAce should become a concept artist and make bank.
Wow that's EPIC! Love it! :P
This kinda reminds me of a spoof that I saw on YouTube. MC and Samus were fighting each other, then they were attacked by space monsters. They fought side by side, then it was revealed that they were both lesbians. I love this art though
No, please don't make this into a game. Also, why does everyone insist upon turning them into a "couple". They are two different people with two different lives. Plus they're not even on the same console.
"Given how little both of these characters talk in their games"
All this leads me to question is how these two garner so many fans...
Uh, haloid on youtube has been around for awhile now.
Great artwork but it would be an awkward meet.
