It'd probably be like the anime adaptation of Angels of Death, except the antagonist is a psychotic pig.

The subversive humour and satire are dropped in favour of a more conventional animated movie that contains only the surface-level qualities of a good Disney movie and the production values of a direct-to-video sequel. Shrek and Fiona also choose to become humans at the end.

Bowser is now a poorly veiled stand-in for Satan and all his minions are demonic now, which basically means theyíre the same but much less cute and more actively malicious in their attack patterns. Mario is a teenager (yet still has his trademark mustache) and Peach is his similarly-aged girlfriend who gets killed by the demons, prompting Mario to forge himself swords and become a demon slayer. Occasionally he does battle with a very powerful and unfortunately very hostile ghost who uses primarily wind and suction-based and grappling attacks. After the final encounter with it, it drops a familiar green cap. Another curious character he meets is a friendly demon who looks suspiciously like Peach, who later dies, causing Mario to proclaim that he shouldíve been the one to fill her empty stomach with pasta. Whatever THAT means.

The gameplay trades platforming for a combo-based hack and slash system, with most of the combos started by jumping on the desired enemyís head. That being said, there is still some platforming but itís obviously taken a back seat. He also retains techniques such as the ground pound and triple backflip for raw damage and dodging attacks respectively. The only thing absent are the guns, and Mario doesnít need them because heís Mario and he has two working fists. Some of the other big monsters Mario fights along the way are a three-headed Reznor, a huge piranha plant that uses its vines as spider legs, and the bird from Captain Toadís Treasure Tracker.

Critics absolutely lambasted it upon release for not being Mario but years after its release it starts to garner a cult following that believes the game isnít bad at all when taken on its own merits.

Iím sorry if you meant the reboot, but I know nothing about it so it wouldnít have been as fleshed out anyway.

You now have control over various characters, but rather than following a predetermined storyline, you can forge your own stories for them. You can either support the King of Fighters tournament, try to put a stop to it and stop the people behind it, or other activities that you wish.

[up] [up] Oops, [nja]íd. Iím sorry.

EVERYONE has a glock, you say?

That means the protagonist also has one, and since everyone now has a glock the game becomes a third-person shooter. Unfortunately, making a development team known for and experienced in designing excellent melee combat try and translate their skills into gun-based gameplay has predictable results, your bullets donít scale for damaging enemies with more health, turning every late-game boss into a Marathon Boss, accuracy is dubious at best, reloading is way too slow, and in spite of all of this, the enemies can not only take and do way more damage than you, but have scarily good accuracy. Have fun.

Hilariously, speedrunning the game with only melee weapons quickly becomes a popular challenge.

By the way, Billy 5545, that was good, both your post and the idea.
