Rick Sanchez apparently portal hopped to an SNK sprite dimension; Sabockee's fighting game sprite work sees various characters with retro looks

Plus Majin Buu versions of Geese Howard and some Street Fighter characters are bizarrely beautiful

Today we're bringing you a handful of Sabockee's wonderful sprites that see fighting game characters as they might have looked if included in Capcom vs. Street Fighter, SNK titles or even Street Fighter 3.

Some of these are straightforward replications of the popular characters, but others have something of a twist. Those are namely the Majin Buu variations on fighters like Geese Howard, Morrigan, Chun-Li and Guile.

We even get a surprise cameo of Rick Sanchez from Adult Swim's Rick and Morty as it seems he's crossed through a portal into a universe where everything is SNK from 20 years ago themed.

At first thought we figured it'd be cool to see Rick in a fighting game, but then we quickly remembered he'd probably just utterly destroy any and all opponents with little to no effort. Maybe not the best idea.

Unfortunately these are all pretty small to begin with, so clicking on each thumbnail won't do a ton in the way of enhancement. They're still really cool though, and well worth a look over for any fighting game fan.

Check out the full gallery below and be sure to head over to Sabockee's Deviant Art page to see the plethora of additional sprites just like these. Let us know which were your favorites in the comments.
