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 ''DeadFantasy'' series, it was nevertheless an amazing feat - put together in a barely over two months by one man with no formal training or a budget, on his home computer. Showcasing dazzling fight scene choreography, impressive visuals, a fair bit of {{Fanservice}}, [[StuffBlowingUp explosions]] and a TwistEnding, it's an absolute must-see for any fan of either game or anyone who enjoys shooters / fighting games / action movies.

So, what are you still waiting for?

!!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 me" 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: 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.
* 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*
* 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. Also that ambiguous looking pig thing, it turns out [[spoiler:nah, just kidding, no pig thing, 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'', which we find out after the crotch spark]].
* 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.
* 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.
* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny [[invoked]]
* WaveMotionGun: Samus with her Zero Laser.
