8-Bit Fatality

Whenever the heroes of 8-bit video games “killed” an enemy, it was usually done by stomping, kicking, eating or shooting them–with no gore to be seen. Your combatants would simply disappear from the screen without a scratch.

Surely a Goomba facing 200-pounds of plumber would feel the pain, right?

Flickr user Tastypaints.com has remedied the problem by creating 8-Bit Fatality, a picture pool filled with the macabre deaths of yesterday’s villains by the hands of our favorite heroes. You’ll never look at Kirby the same way again.
