A short CGI crossover FanFilm by Creator/MontyOum. As the title suggests, it crosses over ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' with ''{{VideoGame/Metroid}}''. It consists of nothing but our favorite PowerArmor-clad protagonists kicking ass (including each others') without regard for minor things like [[RuleOfCool the laws of physics]]. It was Creator/MontyOum's big break, securing his status as an Internet [[strike:celebrity]] legend. Something of a rough diamond compared to his later ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy'' series, it was nevertheless an impressive feat - put together in a barely over two months by one man with no formal training or a budget, on his home computer. Showcasing spectacular fight scene choreography, polished visuals, a fair bit of {{Fanservice}}, [[StuffBlowingUp explosions]] and a TwistEnding, it's a loving send-up to both games as well as shooters[=/=]fighting games[=/=]action movies in general.

!!This work contains examples of:

* BackToBackBadasses: Oh so much.
* BetweenMyLegs: The shot immediately after Samus' BringIt gesture begins this way, then zooms in on MC.
* [[RocketJump Bomb Jump]]: Although not by choice.
* BringIt: Samus' ''Film/TheMatrix'' style "come get some" gesture to MC.
* CreditsGag: Type 5 (Monty Oum is listed as doing everything)
* CurbStompBattle:
** It takes about thirty seconds for the [=ODSTs=] to all get killed.
** The Covenant get thoroughly squashed shortly after.
** After Samus loses her power armor, she starts kicking Master Chief around like a ragdoll. Chief would've easily been killed were it not for the Covenant's timely return. WordOfGod is that this is because MC had fallen in love.
* DancePartyEnding / DancingMookCredits: Nicole, Samus, and the Covenant troops all do this at the end. Done purely for {{Fanservice}} and [[RuleOfFunny lulz]].
* DeadlyDodging
* DualWielding: Samus does it with [[LaserBlade energy swords]]. And shields if you count them as weapons.
* EnemyMine: Samus and MC join forces when more Covenant troops show up. And ''much ass is kicked.''
* EquippableAlly: MC picks up Samus for a [[WeaponizedExhaust rocket-boot powered]] SpinAttack.
* FanService: Zero Suit Samus.
* GrenadeTag
* GunFu: MC takes down numerous Elites and Grunts with a plasma rifle this way.
* GunsAkimbo: Only replace guns with ''[[GatlingGood minigun]] and a [[ThereisNoKillLikeOverkill cannon]]''.
* HomageShot: To ''Film/TheMatrix'' films.
** A certain scene, with handguns swapped for ''rocket launchers''.
** Another scene, with a metal pole replaced by a ''laser whip''.
** Another scene, where Samus twirls around, with a metal pole replaced by MC.
* IDoNotOwn: In the end credits
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: A grunt demonstrates this with a shotgun right after the opening credits. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny On himself.]]
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Samus.
* ImprobableAimingSkills
** MC. At one point Chief kills about 30 Covenant with a single sniper shot.
** Samus, to a lesser degree, though she prefers to just [[MoreDakka spam various ranged attacks]] to cover her approach.
* IntimidationDemonstration: After the first time Samus activates her LaserBlade, she performs some basic cuts and swings with it.
* LaserBlade: Samus has one that not only cuts things but acts as a tractor beam, blaster and stasis field generator.
* LetsYouAndHimFight
* MoreDakka: MC doesn't like having an empty hand, and Samus has the [[SpamAttack Power Beam]].
* MorphWeapon: The {{stun gun|s}} / [[LaserBlade laser]] [[WhipSword whip/sword]] that Zero Suit Samus uses.
* NeckLift: A Covenant Elite does this to an ODST near the end of the initial battle.
* OffhandBackhand: Done by Samus to a pair of elites, while DualWielding a pair of energy swords.
* OneManArmy: Times two.
* OutrunTheFireball
* PinballProjectile: MC combines this with with a a SniperRifle, a pair of Energy Shields, and some ''serious'' ImprobableAimingSkills. ''Twice''.
* PistolWhipping
* ReverseGrip: Used to stab ''two'' enemies [[BadassBack without turning around]].
* RocketBoots: Another reason why Zero Suit Samus rocks.
* RunningGag: [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Crotch: ]]
*ffzzzt* [[spoiler:Which actually doubles as ''{{Foreshadowing}}''.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: The effect of the trope name was replicated for Master Chief. MC was surprised (and aroused, as the sparkle crotch indicates) to find this out. [[spoiler:Turns out MC is a girl too. It's short for Master ''Chick'' and she's meant to be [[http://deadoralive.wikia.com/wiki/Nicole-458 Nicole-458]] - the secret Spartan character from ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive 4''. Her identity is made explicit due to the number on her unarmored model's bodysuit]].
* SelfDestructMechanism: MC's Spartan armor has a detachable breastplate that can be set to detonate like a nuclear bomb.
* ShoutOut
** Samus' whip sounds like a [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]].
** As well as numerous shout-outs to ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' series.
* SigilSpam: The ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' logo appears on the back of MC's under-armor body suit and the chest area of MC's dance outfit.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: [[spoiler:Distaff example. Since the Chief was actually female, instead of getting a boner, she got wet.]]
* SphereOfDestruction: Courtesy of the Spartan armor's SelfDestructMechanism.
* StatOVision
** Threat level -- [[ReadingsAreOffTHeScale '''Massive''']]. We don't get to see any faces during the battle, but at this point, an OhCrap reaction can be implied.
** Before removing the outer armor, MC's HUD goes through a booting up, including the Bungie logo and "SO VERY TIRED", which was either our Spartan's feelings on the matter or that of the AI in said warrior's armor.
* StealthPun: There were two different Floods in this video; one resulted in sparks.
* SticksToTheBack: Justified. The SPARTAN armor is magnetized to provide this precise effect.
* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: MC cuts a Covenant member in half with a thrown shield.
* TheWarSequence: [[ZergRush Zerg]] have nothing on the [[AttackAttackAttack Covenant]].
* WeaponizedExhaust: Samus's rocket boots do more than just lift her up.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: The SPARTAN's unarmored appearance has never been revealed, but [[spoiler: according to ''Dead or Alive 4'' Nicole has a [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure BWH of 49-30-41]], a good deal more shapely than her unarmored model in the video]].
* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny [[invoked]]
* WaveMotionGun: Samus with her Zero Laser.
