ONE PUNCH! No longer just one of the single greatest lines ever uttered in a comic book, but the power of possibly the greatest anime and manga hero to ever exist. If you haven’t been keeping up, you might have missed out on the smash-hit manga series One-Punch Man getting an anime adaptation this year.
There’s only a handful of episodes so far, but the One Punch Man anime has some of the most jaw-droppingly fantastic fight sequences animated this year, even if they are more one-sided than the social media response to a thoroughly stupid UFO advertising campaign. The entire premise of One Punch Man is simple enough for even me to comprehend it: A super hero who can beat anyone, in a single punch. Anyone. Even Hulkamania.
Now imagine that idea, applied to Fallout 4:
The video above comes from YouTuber The Ghost, who modified Fallout 4 to include a proper version of Saitama, his jumpsuit (minus the cape), his serious face and his iconic punch. And that punch finds numerous targets, from overeager Deathclaws through to Assaultrons, bandits and Ghouls. Ghouls who really, really deserve to have what’s coming to them because they’re an irradiated bunch of bastards and yes I’m still feeling grumpy after I was murdered by a Glowing One in Hubris comics.
One Punch Man in Fallout 4 is but the mere tip of the modding iceberg. And right now, I’m waiting to see some Skyrim magic repeated, with a Randy “Macho Man” Savage mod that introduces wasteland bandits to Suplex City after player snap into a Slim Jim. OH YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
