->"My personal favorite super belongs to the dainty umbrella-wielding Mian Hua Tang: she calls out to her manservant, ordering him to attack. (Relevant: her manservant is [[{{Franchise/Transformers}} Optimus Prime]].)"

More accurately translatable to ''Dong Dong: the Immortal Legend'', ''Dong Dong Never Die'' is a FightingGame that defies all but the heartiest attempts at description. Suffice it to say that just before its destruction, [=SkyNet=] sends a more advanced Terminator the [[FlightStrengthHeart nigh-invulnerable, gun-wielding, super-strong, and water-drinking]] Sheng Hua Nan to the past. In response, the leader of the human resistance, Dong Dong, sends back a T-800 Model Terminator that he has reprogrammed to protect his past self. Both Terminators arrive at a time when fighting representatives from all parts of China such as [[JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong]] with a spray paint can, some guy with [[FunnyAfro a huge afro]] and an inner-tube, and {{Mario}} gather together and...

[[FlatWhat Yes,]] [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay that's]] all really part of the plot.

''Dong Dong Never Die'' shamelessly lifts plots, characters, and everything else from all sections of pop culture and blends them into a ridiculous, hilarious, unbalanced, and surprisingly fun fighting game. It's free to download, and is one of the few places where you can have [[RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms Zhuge Liang]] order a volley of arrows against a Terminator who celebrates his victory by drinking a bottle of water and singing "[[RKelly I Believe I Can Fly]]."

GiantBomb took at look at it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kZQhZbJevM here]], Let's Try To Play took their crack at it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLaTcvsAa9k here]], and Joel from Vinesauce streamed (and fell in love with) it, as partly shown [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnl7VpOf9L0 here]]. A quick look at it can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97sm0Kbk0P4 here]].

!! Dong Dong Never Die contains examples of...

* TheAhnold: Gouki, especially during his bazooka super. He even has the accent.
* AlternateUniverse: This seems to be another alternate timeline of Terminator2JudgmentDay.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Da Lan seems to be some kind of authority figure (one of his followers lights his cigarette post-match) and is the only member of his crew fighting.
* BigDamnHeroes: During the final battle against Sheng Hua Nan, either Dong Dong or Terminator help you out in a second match. Oddly, Sheng Hua Nan doesn't power up or call an ally of his own to boost his own power, so the second match is comparatively easy.
* BulletTime: One of Gouki's supers slows time and [[JohnWoo releases doves]].
* TheChosenOne: Dong Dong is apparently the only one who can save the world (according to Time Magazine).
* CombatMedic: Jie Mei Hua are two nurses who, despite throwing scalpels, otherwise attack with typical fighting game moves.
* CompetitiveBalance: Completely averted with Sheng, with regards to his gun attacks. Infinite range, infinitely chainable, and can combo any opponent from full health. The only way to beat him is to get lucky with his machine gun spread, and then never let him fire his guns again. Its only weakness is that all of his projectiles aside from his machine gun super are high enough to completely miss ducking opponents, allowing a canny player to roll towards him and...[[HeadsIWinTailsYouLose probably get caught by his ludicrously-damaging and self-chainable breakdancing sweep kick]].
* ConfusionFu: Jie Jie has a DoppelgangerSpin teleport and one of his supers involves using his inner tube as a teleportation device to dive at the enemy repeatedly.
* EnemySummoner: Aside from the aforementioned Mian Hua Tang, Mo Shu Shi summons spirits to attack, while Terminator summons five human missiles for one of his supers.
* EvilLaugh: Violent Dong Dong and Sheng Hua Nan have suitably hammy ones.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Averted for Sheng Hua Nan. He's a tenor.
* {{Expy}} / ShoutOut: So many. Just a few of the more notable ones...
** Several of the stages are recreated expies of various [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Street Fighter]] stages.
** The intro is more or less KingOfFighters 98.
** Dong Dong, Terminator, Sheng Hua Nan, and '''the entire plot''' are tied to Terminator2JudgmentDay.
** Ken is...[[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Ken]].
** Yin Yin's outfit might be a reference to Aya's from {{Oneechanbara}}. She also begins matches by riding [[FistOfTheNorthStar Kokuo-goh]] onto the stage.
** Liu Mang seems to be a huge reference to ShaolinSoccer and {{Dodgeball}}.
** {{Mario}} is [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Akuma]].
** Da Lan has several mannerisms and animations homaging MichaelJackson.
** Arcade mode has a bonus stage where you [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} beat up a car]], and a few bonus stages where you fight characters from StreetsOfRage, CadillacsAndDinosaurs, and a beat-'em-up possibly based on RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms.
** Mian Hua Tang summons [[{{Franchise/Transformers}} Optimus Prime]].
** On a related note, Xiao Pan wears an Autobot T-shirt, but otherwise has absolutely nothing to do with Transformers. Instead, he has [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Guile's]] move set.
** Dong Dong, Violent Dong Dong, and Mario all have [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Akuma's]] winpose. Oddly enough, Gouki doesn't.
** Fei Fei is basically a female [[KingOfFighters Iori Yagami]].
*** Speaking of which, Dong Dong has a move that looks like Iori's Shiki Aoi Bana and a move similar to Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu, but otherwise seems to be a pastiche of [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Ryu]] and Kyo Kusanagi.
* ExtendableArms: Wu Liao Jun stabs his arms into the ground and stretches them upward.
* EyeBeams: A Shuang has them, and is something of a [[XMen Cyclops]] {{Expy}}
* FlechetteStorm: One of Jie Mei Hua's supers surrounds the target with a ring of scalpels that then home in for loads of damage.
* FunnyAfro: Jie Jie has a huge fuzzy one that marks him as something of a crazy funster.
* GratuitousEnglish: Mian Hua Tang sometimes says "Hey, guys! Come on!" and all of Yin Yin's lines are in English.
* GunNut: Gouki dresses in camo and has plenty of guns (and a rocket launcher).
* TheGunslinger: Gouki performs a few trick shots with his pistol during one of his supers and is about as direct an example of The Woo as anyone can be during another.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: [[RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms Zhuge Liang]] is in the game. And he starts fights by [[ShowSomeLeg showing some leg]].
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Aside from Mian Hua Tang using her umbrella, there's Jie Jie, who uses a pink plastic inner tube, and Ming Boy, who uses a flute and paper airplanes.
* LadyOfWar: Mian Hua Tang is dressed in a [[ElegantGothicLolita frilly and elegant getup]], and is one of the few who fights with a melee weapon.
* LesYay: Jie Mei Hua seem to be a couple, though they're among the less overtly fanservicey members of the cast.
* LethalJokeCharacter: Ming Boy looks ridiculous, has a short melee range, takes noticeably more damage than anyone else...and has indestructible multi-hitting projectiles that might be the best out of the entire cast.
* MsFanservice: Yin Yin and Fei Fei have very fanservicey getups, and one of Fei Fei's winposes has her teasingly unzip her pantsuit halfway.
* [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Multi-armed and Dangerous]]: One of Wu Liao Jun's supers has him stab his two arms into the ground, only to unleash a flurry of at least six.
* NakedOnArrival: Terminator sometimes does the {{Terminator}}-style time travel entry.
* NinjaRun: Ming Boy has possibly the least cool-looking version of this ever shown on screen.
* ParasolOfPain: Mian Hua Tang's melee weapon is an umbrella.
* [[PintSizedPowerhouse Pint-sized Powerhouse]]: Mario is much smaller than the other characters, but just as dangerous.
* PowerFloats: Huo Chai Ren and Ming Boy have floaty win-poses, while Violent Dong Dong has a floating pose for one of his supers.
* PromotedToPlayable: The usual depower is completely averted with Sheng Hua Nan and Violent Dong Dong. The playable versions are exactly as overpowered as when you fight them.
* PublicDomainCharacter: [[JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong]] is in the game. With a spray paint can.
* RainOfArrows: One of Zhuge Liang's supers has him call for a volley of arrows.
* RatedMForManly: Jian Ci Lang has a bit of [[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Zangief's]] move set, fights at a construction site (to [[Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar Ai wo Torimodose]]), considers two heavy-duty crossed chains an adequate replacement for a shirt, wields a claw hammer, wears another heavy-duty chain wrapped around his forearm as a bracer, and his winpose has him take the place of [[FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro alongside Bat and Lin]]. Yes.
* {{Shotoclone}}: Dong Dong, Ken (naturally), and Mario.
* SpamAttack: Jiang Bao likes to use bicycle kicks and rapid-fire punches.
* StickFigureAnimation: Huo Chai Ren.
* StoutStrength: Jian Ci Lang.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Violent Dong Dong is...Dong Dong's.
* TimeTravel: Naturally, given that the game's plot is Terminator 2.
* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: The machines are kind enough to disseminate confirmation that "We Will Attack You Again" to at least one major newspaper.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Yin Yin is the deeper-voiced grappler, while Mian Hua Tang is the frilly-dressed umbrella-user.
* [[WidgetSeries Weird Chinese Thing]]: Oh hell yes.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Yin Yin and Jian Ci Lang are grapple-heavy characters.
