Vargskelethor's Hardcore Friday Super Metal Almost Criminally Violent Ultra Swedish Meatball Royal Rumble MASSACRE!, or simply shortened as VHFSMACVUSMRRM, is a M.U.G.E.N screenpack made by Brergrsart in tribute to Vinesauce Joel. The screenpack includes Joel himself as a playable character, complete with other characters that appear or at the very least related and/or referencing to his previous streams, including Bootleg Felix the Cat, Bulk Bogan, Jotaro Kujo, Skeletor, and so on.

To put it simply, it's a frickin Vinesauce Joel fighting game, complete with shout-outs and nods from his previous streams and many more. The characters consist of Joel himself, which is a palette swap of Michael Roa Valdamjong with his moveset referencing his previous streams, some characters that Brergrsart himself has created for the game, and other characters from various fighting games (with credits to the original authors, of course) related to Joel's previous streams, including four bonus bosses that you can encounter during the arcade mode.

The plot is as complicated as you'd expect from a crossover fighting game; One day, Joel is streaming Mischief Makers on his computer, when suddenly he spills some water onto his computer. The water contains magical properties that makes all of his previous streams comes to life! It's now up to Joel to save the day. And that's just one of them, each character (sans the secret ones) has their own separate story from Joel himself.

The game itself is available to download here. While the core game is already completed, Brergrsart has stated that he may update the game at some point.

A planned sequel called "Vargverse" was announced and is on the way.

Needs some Wiki Magic Love.

This game includes the following tropes:

  • Adaptational Badass: In Hard Time, going berserk renders your character uncontrollable and causes them to attack anyone in sight, only regaining control after some time has passed. In this game, not only is Bulk Bogan able to control his actions if he goes berserk, he also deals more damage and gains super armor.
  • A.I. Breaker: You can literally break the game's A.I by adding/removing them via in-game commands.
  • And Now is Something Completely Different: Chinese Rev/Sheng Hua Nan's intro and ending is written in Google-translated Chinese.
  • Advertisement:
  • Artificial Brilliance: Since the game's AI varies between each character, some are considerably stronger than others. Kenshiro and Shaq are some of the more notable examples.
  • Artificial Stupidity: The AI when facing "Flock of the Falling Fathers", will instead blindly charge toward the crosshair instead of avoiding it, making it inevitable that the falling Geese will kill them.
  • Artstyle Dissonance: Typical M.U.G.E.N shenanigans, as per usual. Character sprites range from your arcade standard sprites to a digitized actors. There's even a Hi-res, fluent and detailed character in form of Kenshiro.
  • Assist Character: Uncle Joel himself has four characters that work as his striker moves; The first one is Kermit (which references his father), Vegeta (From his Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Dragon Ball Z Bootleg stream), Tommy Vercetti, his stolen nice bike and the bike's original owner chasing him (From his Grand Theft Auto: Vice City streams), and Chinese Rev/Sheng Hua Nan (from Dong Dong Never Die). He also summons Grand Dad in one of his rapid-fire fisticuffs hyper.
  • Background Music Override:
    • don't worry... these pizzas are in good hands will override any battle theme with "Funiculi, Funicula/The Spider-Man 2 Pizza Theme."
    • The Bestest Ken will override any music with "Ken's Theme" as long as he can successfully land a Shoryuken.
  • Bittersweet Ending: While some of the characters have unambiguously good endings, others are rather depressing. Said characters are;
    • Bulk Bogan's ending has him successfully make it home and have a well earned rest...only to never be heard from again.
    • Karnov defeats his enemies, but his previous employer Data East goes bankrupt. Thankfully he uses what remains of them to form Karnov East, which goes on to become the greatest video game development company that ever existed.
    • After winning the Gran Prix, Captain Falcon retires.
  • Black Comedy: The Stage "Norway" is a desolate nuclear wasteland.
    • Joel's most powerful move is a nod to him nuking Norway with 5000 nuclewar warheads in his Shadow President stream.
    • Everything about Jailbot, really. His ending has him successfully collect people for his party...all of which are already dead.
  • Bonus Boss: There are four hidden characters whom the player can randomly fight on the Arcade mode.
    • Dance Master Duane, a beatable and controllable boss version of the infamous Duane character. His mechanic consisting of charges that he can build up by holding the button or getting him hit several times, where he can use the charges and unleash devastating attacks that can take the entire screen.
    • Giygas is a fullscreen nightmare that can randomly throw the player into death traps from Eternal Champions. Here it's a strictly boss battle since it's controlled completely by the A.I. preset.
    • Flock of the Falling Fathers is a controllable minigame where you move a crosshair around to aim Geese Howard's falling body. Players have a short time to get out of the way or else get instakilled by Geese. For some reason, the A.I. seems to charge forward towards the crosshair.
    • Subverted with Heihachi(?). Despite being a secret character, he's not really that threatening at all.
  • Boring, but Practical: The Bestest Ken believes this, battling the other characters to prove that simple is "bestest" in the MUGEN engine.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Several from Joel.
    • "OH IT'S A BURNING SUPER DEATH SWORD!"
    • "NOT QUITE HADOUKEN!"
    • "THE PIZZA HE-MAN! EAT IT! EAT IT! YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
  • Cool Sword:
    • He-man and Lonk wields their respective signature blade.
    • Surprising no one, Joel has the Burning Super Death Sword as a special.
    • Averted with Tuna, who wields an ordinary kitana.
  • Crossover: It's a screenpack made with M.U.G.E.N game engine, so it's a given.
  • Dance Battler: Bootleg Michael Jackson, naturally.
    • Dance Master Duane also qualifies.
  • Dance Party Ending: He-Man/Prince Adam celebrates his victory with this, complete with HEYEEAYEAYEAYEA.
  • Disney Death: In Bulk Bogan's intro, it's stated that Bulk's has been faking his death at the beginning of the game. Unfortunately for him, people catch on and send assassins after him to finish him off.
    • Duke Nukem is revealed to have survived the supposed nuclear airstrike, with him commenting how much the ending sucks.
  • Disney Villain Death: Flock of Falling Father Figures is a parody of Fatal Fury's instance of this trope.
  • Downer Ending: Some of the endings are unambiguously sad and depressing, at certain points;
    • After killing many people using his Ninja Screaming arts, Arashi has finally received the recognition he wants...from the local police. Arashi is later arrested for mass murder and has his dojo shut down.
    • Robert Cop is slowly getting the edge of his job, when he suffers a terrifying case of Engrish, which accidentally shuts down his console.
    • Felix the Cat meets her current lover, Miss Kitty, where she gave birth to many beautiful kittens. Unable to bear the responsibility, Felix rushes to the nearby gas station to take his own life. note 
    • Despite his best efforts of fending off the human-disguised aliens, the government decides to nuke Duke's current position, where he presumably dies. He doesn't.
    • don't worry, these pizzas are in good hands ends up ruining the pizza he was trying to deliver, and to make matters worse, he's late for Doctor Connors' class.
  • Driven to Suicide: Felix the Cat, in his ending.
  • Eagle Land: Gweelay.
  • Easter Egg: Plenty.
    • Joel has multiple interactions depending on who's he fighting against;
      • He has a special quote when fighting Duke Nukem, a Continuity Nod from his infamous DUKI NUKI stream.
      • There's a chance for Angus to bug himself to death when fighting Joel. Specifically, when he uses his "crotch fire" special attack, the attack will fail, Angus will collapse, and Angus's lifebar will deplete automatically as his sprite gets larger and larger, all while Joel rambles about how "You blew it." Joel will then walk away, with this final quip:
      Joel: I will not play a game where I get slaughtered by crotch fire under the kilt.
      • Joel has a special "ORAORAORAORAORA" entry when fighting DIO, a la Jotaro's, followed up by commenting on Dio's bad leg.
    • If you manage to perform a Fatality on Tuna with Scorpion's 1st fatality, Tuna will become a plate of fish and sticks instead of the typical charred skeleton, before it explodes.
    • Defeating Felix the Cat will have his sprite turned into the infamous "ripped-off skin" bootleg game over screen version of him. Audio from Joel's initial reaction to it may start playing afterwards.
  • Excuse Plot: The plot is as complicated as you'd expect from a crossover fighting game; One day, Joel is streaming Mischief Makers on his computer, when suddenly he spills some water onto his computer. The water contains magical properties that makes all of his previous streams comes to life! It's now up to Joel to save the day. And that's just one of them, each character (sans the secret ones) has their own separate story from Joel himself, and every story felt disjointed with no connection at all.
  • Flaming Sword: Joel can summon a giant flaming BFS (the BURNING SUPER DEATH SWORD from the Cursormania software) by pulling a D DF F + Heavy Punch.
  • Flying Saucer: Felix rides a giant saucer that fires off lasers towards his enemies in one of his Hypers.
  • Pizza In The Face: One of Papa Jobel's hypers invokes this, throwing a giant pizza to his enemies up close or from ranged distances.
  • Game Mod: M.U.G.E.N was used to create the screenpack.
  • Groin Attack: Gweelay got hit by this, hence his voice being way higher pitched.
  • Have a Gay Old Time: The narrator in Felix the Cat's Arcade Intro describes Felix as gay and carefree. In Felix's Arcade Ending, it's established that he's in love with Miss Kitty, proving that the use of this trope was intentional.
  • Helium Speech: Gweelay suffers from this after he got his nutshack kicked. This extends to his quotes in the gameplay. Unfortunately, there's no way restoring it to his original Guile voice.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Shaq naturally uses his sick basketball moves (and product placements) to fight his enemies, and it's pretty effective. He even seems able to perform the dreaded Chaos Dunk!
  • Joke Character: Downplayed with don't worry, the pizza are in good handsnote : Like the original character, he is relatively well rounded, but has had his attacks edited to become less effective in some way. For instance, most of his moves, as well as move cancels, can hurt him. He can also randomly spew pizzas which can cause a Background Music Override. However, done well he can be as effective as anyone else. See Lethal Joke Character below.
    • Played straight with Heihachi(?), a Heihachi Mishima character based on a Tekken 2 Bootleg for NES. His moves are not that good, he moves rather clunkily, and doesn't have any sort of strong multiplier like Viga has. For some reason, he's a Bonus Boss, likely as a joke.
  • Kaiju: Godzilla.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Tuna wields one of these. Ditto with Arashi, though his blades were more like Ninjatos.
  • Kill Them All: Implied with Arashi's ending, where he kills every combatant he comes across and gets all the attention he wanted...from the cops.
  • Lethal Joke Character: While most of the characters are either regular fighters or of the Fighting Clown kind, there are a few that stand out as this.
    • Bestest Ken's moveset consists almost entirely of Shoryukens. He's still a force to be reckoned with.
    • Bootleg Michael Jackson doesn't have a large moveset, he's very predictable, and is generally very squishy. With good timing though, he's basically untouchable.
    • don't worry, these pizzas are in good hands is built up as a Joke Character at first, but he's based on MvC Spiderman, which means he's as powerful as his original counterpart. Just be careful not to hurt yourself.
  • More Dakka: Two of Chinese Rev/Sheng Hua Nan's specials involve rapidly firing an SMG he has on him.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: In-universe, Felix the Cat's Downer Ending tells you "This is canon, look it up". Indeed, it's the ending to the first ever cartoon starring Felix the Cat (or Master Tom as he was known then).
  • Nuke 'em: Joel's most powerful hyper move is a grab move that activates a scene of him nuking Norway on his Shadow President stream if hits.
  • Palette Swap: Joel himself is a palette edit of Michael Roa Valdamjong, albeit with his own moves.
    • Bulk Bogan is an edit of Mass' Hawk.
  • Patriotic Fervor: Gweelay has bits of this.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs:
    • Joel has two; one from his Grand Dad hyper, the other activated by tapping the punch button repeatedly until his stand appears. Hilariously you can even chain the Stand barrage into Grand Dad.
    • Jotaro and Dio obviously has one each, as a staple of their franchise.
    • In classic Kenshiro fashion, the Hokuto Hyakuretsuken is his finisher.
  • Reality Ensues: Arashi wants attention so he kills everyone he meets in his ending. The only attention he gets is from the cops, who arrest him and shut his dojo down.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Jailbot.
  • Sensory Abuse: Joel's mid-uppercut attack will spew seizure-happy visuals accompanies with a loud "WACKY EFFECTS!", a homage to his attempt of making a Youtube Poop during his first Windows Destruction stream.
  • Shoto Clone:
    • Joel himself was created with this in mind. He does not rely on a certain gimmick, has three different projectiles and uppercut move, along with three different strikers and four Hyper moves.
    • Kenshiro and Jotaro are this, to an extent.
    • The Bestest Ken, a Ken Masters is a Deconstructive Parody of Ken clones, in that he only has Shoryukens and little else.
  • Shout-Out: Plenty, and it's not only from Joel's Stream.
    • One of the stages available is Mount Akina.
    • There's a censored version of Joel's Movelist, a nod to the spoilerific nature of Michael Roa Valdamjong whom his sprite is based on.
  • Stylistic Suck: Tuna. He looks like a Microsoft Paint creation, yet lacks a battle intro, a taunt, and a victory pose. His moveset is also fairly limited.
  • Take Over the World: Viga and Pope Malware both try to do this in their respective story modes. They both succeed.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Thanks to how the ridiculous the roster is, some of them have attacks like this.
    • Joel has a "MUDA MUDA MUDA" move that he can simply do by repeatedly tapping his punch button.
    • Pressing his heavy attack once then pressing it again will prompt him to fire a shot of his revolver, which instantly stun any enemies that weren't blocking.
  • Undignified Death: Robert Cop's ending has them end up shutting down. Not because he was damaged beyond repair, but due to "a fatal case of Engrish".
  • Units Not to Scale: Godzilla will always as big as your average fighter included in this game mod. At the other side of the spectrum, everyone else that's playing in Godzilla's stage will be as big as Godzilla in the city.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Bulk Bogan naturally uses wrestling moves.
