Mash-Up Monday: The Final Showdown! Bowser vs Robotnik!

Yes, yes, oh my god yes.

Likely the Mash-Up Monday to end all Mash-Up Mondays (METAPHOR. Do not take this seriously!), we’ve got a real sexy piece of ear candy for you all!

Possibly one of the greatest RPGs available on the Nintendo DS, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story brought about one of the most chaotic final showdowns ever experienced in the Mario series. In fact, it shares quite a few similarities with that of Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s Death Egg Robot.

For one, both battles take place in an isolated area on top of the world: one being on a tower atop Peach’s Castle, another being in the colossal Death Egg orbiting the planet.

Secondly, being final showdowns, the fate of the world rests on the heroes’ shoulders. Sonic chases Eggman through emerald hills and metropolises to thwart his dastardly efforts of taking over the world for the second time, without the bare essentials to keep him alive for longs (rings); Bowser, with the intention of ruling the Mushroom Kingdom in the future, takes on a Dark Star-created, destruction craving clone of himself in a battle of the titans, while Mario and Luigi destroy Fawful and the Dark Star Core from inside Bowser’s body. All sorts of chaos is happening in both scenarios.

And three, with final bosses comes FANTASTIC BACKGROUND MUSIC.

Hence, I am happy to share with you all the most glorious mash-up to hit TSS. Combining the final boss themes from Bowser’s Inside Story and Sonic 2 (with a little bit of Super Mario Galaxy on the side), we present to you:

“Bowser vs Robotnik”!

“SHOWTIME!”

  1. Aww , I actually thought it was going to be a video about fighting! XD Great video, though! I’m loving the music.

  2. I figured you’d like it. ^____^

    Of course, anything with the Mario and Luigi 3 final boss music is amazing.

  3. An even better mashup would be one of the many remastered M&L3 final boss remixes and the Generations remix of Death Egg Robot.

  4. wow, just amazing, should have been the updated version from sonic generations though, but still epic

  5. hahah funny last image there of them probably in a bar, all bluesy, bitter, and bogged down about losing yet again to the heroes, Sonic and Mario
