Badass, powerful and certainly cheesy - Click Burgundy's art is the perfect showcase of the best aspects in fighting games

Fighting games are a mixture of hype, feeling powerful and a healthy amount of cheesy goodness, so artwork capturing those specific elements makes them extra special at reminding us why we love the genre.

Click Burgundy is a Japanese artist we've featured a number of times on the site before, and their work certainly fits the mold of absolutely getting that fighting game charm right on the money.

We've put together a gallery of over a dozen of Burgundy's most recent pieces tied quite a bit to the fighting game reveals of the past few months from Terry Bogard in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Elizabeth joining BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Gill's reveal for Street Fighter 5 and all of that Guilty Gear: Strive goodness.

Quite possibly the best one of these is the first recreating Ken and Terry's unique pre-fight intro for Capcom vs. SNK, but instead of a Fatal Fury hat, Mr. Masters is tossing over Mario's cap for the crossover to end all crossovers made real.

Though a lot of their work is pretty lighthearted, Click Burgundy can get serious in their approach as well. Gill and Potemkin look fairly menacing in these though Kolin's ice-cold stare is really something else.

There's also Metera and Zeta from Granblue Fantasy Versus, more King of Fighters, a nice shout out to Garou and big boy Broly. You can find even more gaming and anime-related artwork on Click Burgundy's Twitter page — where they seem to also be taking commissions.
