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:

  • 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/Shenghua Nan's intro and ending is written in google-translated Chinese.
  • Artificial Brilliance: Since the game A.I. varies between each character, some are considerably stronger than others. Kenshiro and Shaq are some of the more notable examples.
  • Artificial Stupidity: The A.I. when facing "Flock of the Falling Fathers", will instead heading towards the crosshair instead of avoiding it before Geese Howard fell to his death.
  • Advertisement:
  • Artstyle Dissonance: Typical Video Game/MUGEN shenanigans, as per usual. Character sprites ranged 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 works 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), Toni Vercetti and the bike chaser (From his Grand Theft Auto: Vice City streams), and Chinese Rev/Shenghua 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 pizza are in good hands will override any battle theme.
    • The Bestest Ken will override any music with "Ken's Theme" as long as he successfully pull his 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 went home and take a well earned rest. He was never heard from again.
    • Karnov has defeated his enemies, but his previous employer Data East has gone bankrupt, in which he picked what's left off from them and created "Karnov East", and it becomes 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 his infamous action of Nuking Norway in his Shadow President stream.
    • Everything about Jailbot, really. His ending has him successfully collect people for his party. They 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 receive by holding the button or getting him hit several times, where he can use the charges and unleash devastating attacks that can takes the entire screen.
    • Giygas also appear as a secret boss here. 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 decide the position where Geese Howard will fall. Players must avoid this in short time before Geese reaches the ground. For some reason, the A.I. seems to charge forward towards the fall position instead of trying to avoid it.
    • Subverted with Heihachi(?). Despite being a secret character, he's not really that threatening at all.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Several from Joel.
    • "OH IT'S A BURNING SUPER DEATH SWORD!"
    • "NOT QUITE SHORYUKEN!"
    • "THE PIZZA HE-MAN! EAT IT! EAT IT! YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
  • Cool Sword: He-man and Lonk wields their respective signature blade.
  • 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 celebrate 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. People begin to notice his survival, thus they send assassins to finish him off.
    • Duke Nukem is revealed to have survived the supposed nuclear airstrike, with him commenting how much the ending sucks.
  • 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 was 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 and 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.
  • Driven to Suicide: Felix the Cat, in his ending.
  • Eagle Land: Gweelay.
  • Easter Egg: Plenty.
    • Joel has multiple interaction depending on who's he fighting to;
      • He has a special quote when fighting Duke Nukem, a Continuity Nod from is infamous DUKI NUKI stream.
      • There's a chance for Angus to bug himself to death when fighting Joel.
      • Joel has a special "ORAORAORAORAORA" entry when fighting DIO, a la Jotaro's.
    • If you manage to preform 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 his.
  • 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 other than the mentioned characters.
  • Flaming Sword: Joel can summon a giant flaming BFS (the SUPER BURNING DEATH SWORD from the Cursormania software) by pulling a D DF F + Heavy Punch.
  • Flying Saucer: Felix rides a giant saucer that fires off laser towards his enemies in one of his Hypers.
  • Pizza In The Face: One of Papa Jobel's hyper invokes this, throwing giant pizza to his enemies up close or from ranged distances.
  • Game Mod: Natch.
  • Groin Attack: Gweelay got hit by this, increases his voice pitch into ridiculous level.
  • Helium Speech: Gweelay suffers from this after got his nutshack kicked. This extends to his quotes in the gameplay. [[Spoiler: 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.
  • Joke Character: Downplayed with don't worry, the pizza are in good handsnote  is a relatively well rounded character like the original is based on, but is edited that make his attack somehow ineffective (most of his moves now can hurt him, especially when overdone or misses) and performing a move cancel hurts him as well. Also he has some penchant of spewing pizzas, complete with a Background Music Override. However, done well and 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, moves rather clunky, and doesn't have strong multiplier like Viga has. The catch? He's supposedly a Secret Boss character.
  • Kaiju: Godzilla.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Tuna wields one of these. Ditto with Arashi, thought his blades were more like Ninjatos.
  • Kill Them All: Implied with Arashi's ending, where he kills every combatant he came across and got the rightful attention he deserved from local police force.
  • Lethal Joke Character: While most of the characters are either fighting normally or a Fighting Clown kind of characters, there are a few that stand out as this.
    • Bestest Ken's only moves are Shoryukens and a few variations. 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. Time his attack and projectile right however, and he's untouchable.
    • don't worry, these pizzas are in good hands is build 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: Chinese Rev attacks are based on rapid firing his assault rifle.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: 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 some paints of it.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Joel has two; one from his Grand Dad hyper while the other one can be triggered by tapping the punch button repeatedly until his stand appears.
    • Jotaro and Dio obviously had one as staple of the franchise.
    • Kenshiro also bears one in his finisher.
  • 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 wass created with this in mind. He does not rely on a certain gimmick, has three different projectilez 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 character with only Shoryukens and variations of it as his moveset, is a Deconstructive Parody of Ken clones, who is also a Shotoclone himself.
  • Shout-Out: Plenty, and it's not only from Joel's Stream.
    • One of the stage available to play is Mount Akina.
    • There's a censored version of Joel's Movelist, a nod to spoilerific nature of Michael Roa Valdamjong whom his sprite is based on.
  • Stylistic Suck: Tuna.
  • Take Over the World: Viga and Pope Malware is engaging at one in respective story. 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 press it again will prompt him to fire a shot of his revolver, which instantly stun any enemies that weren't blocking.
  • 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 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.
