Watch The Witcher 3's Geralt Take On The Griffin, Samurai Jack-Style

 While he may be a bit more pragmatic about his bad guy-killing by taking payment for it, Geralt does share a few traits with Samurai Jack's titular ronin. Both wander the world slaying monsters and humans alike (when necessary), and both are the best at they do.

Mashed has also seen the similarities, and decided to blend the two series together into one pretty great animated short. While the character may be Geralt, the short is all Samurai Jack; the hunt is medatative, but brutal where it needs to be, with The Witcher's general opining about the nature and morality of monster-hunting giving way to a calm, wordless approach.
