Worlds Collide/Mega Man-Sonic Crossover

Recommended Posts

An idea occurred to me one night.

Archie Comics publishes a Mega Man title and a few Sonic the Hedgehog titles, and they currently doing a crossover event with the two universes.

Coincidentally, Mega Man and Sonic games have been the two subjects of competitions here on OCR, and the idea just popped into my head of doing a similar one-off, crossover-type competition involving both Mega Man and Sonic.

It could be structured in the same way as other Mega Man compos and the other Sonic compos were: tournament style elimination. But each contestant could pick a Robot Master AND a Sonic Zone, and then alternate each week so that each remix was a combination of a Robot Master's theme and a Sonic Zone theme (e.g. Bubble Man in Starlight Zone, Sheep Man in Sky Sanctuary, etc).

To be fair, I wouldn't be able to run the compo. I am way to busy right now. But I just wanted to float the idea out there, and if doesn't get any traction, so be it.

Ha! This would be awesome! My two favorite game series! I'm going to have to check out those comics too...

Funny, I had pretty much the same idea myself a little while ago. Unfortunately I don't have the time to run a compo right now or I'd be happy to, but this is definitely something that should happen. Especially since, as far as I can tell, there are absolutely no remixes combining Sonic and Mega Man in existence right now...

It seems to me it might work better if there were either 2 brackets (one MM and one Sonic) that worked similarly to past compos (combine the sources in each matchup) or maybe teams of 2 (one person chooses MM source, other chooses Sonic source) for this, but eh. Still a wonderful idea.

Aw, dangit! I've been planning for months to do this for this season's RMWtS Vs. Special episode. Now you went and spoiled it. I'll probably do it anyway, though--mine is just one episode, so only 4-6 mixes will come out of it.

If you were to do this, you should wait a while. Back-to-back compos with the same source aren't a great idea, and Darkesword has dibs on Mega Man this summer.

Agreed. Though we should try to convince Darke to do something like this.

Like I said, I don't have the time to run the compo, I just wanted to throw the idea out there.

Hope someone can pick this one up, though!

SuperiorX did a fine job running the SZRC last time--Darke clearly has no objection to other people picking these things up. Besides, I think he gets fatigued running these all the time.

The format I'd put forward would be a double elimination tournament, in which, as orlouge suggested, each week alternates (first your robot master in your opponent's zone, then your zone with your opponent's robot master). Or you could do a "Draw and Pull" style double elimination format, either alternating as above or with one whole bracket being one direction and the other whole bracket being the other.

If there's few enough participants, you could also do a whole "Vs" style compo, with 8 robot master and 8 Sonic zones, and do it round-robin.

I've also considered a sort of "Grand Melee" format, but that would be a lot more complicated, probably unnecessarily so.

If someone actually creates this compo soon, it might break me. I can't possibly resist not joining a sonic/megaman compo, but I have so much in my hands right now that I would probably go NutS.

Yeah, this sounds very interesting. Maybe, to make it a bit different from GMRB or SZRC you could allow more than just zones and robot master themes.

Just to be curious, what would it take to run a composition like this? I would be up for starting it soon, since I have loads of free time lately, and could probably manage it.

I have an idea of how to do one without any elimination. I can run a short, 6 week compo with 12 participants if you guys are up for it. Competitors have to be ready to remix every week though.

Should I do it?

Oh man, that would be so awesome. Other people should reply and also say yes!
