Nov 10 2010Video Game Characters: The Other 8-Bit Meat


Graphic artist Jude Buffum went and created these meat diagrams showing the different cuts you can get from various video game characters. This is Bowser (full-res version HERE), but there's Ganon, Yoshi, a Chocobo, Cheep Cheep and Blooper after the jump. They all look pretty good if you ask me, but I'm a vegetarian so what the hell do I know? Vegetables and gas bad enough to make the dog sleep under the bed.

I decided to explore the carnivorous side of the world of video games. Though I myself eat meat, enough of my friends and loved ones are now vegetarians or vegans, so it's something I've been experimenting with. I suppose these pieces are a by-product of that exploration. That, and my long-time obsession with meat diagrams.

Listen Jude, I've been obsessed with a lot of things in my life, but never meat diagrams. I'm pretty sure that's what most health-care professionals would consider an "unhealthy" obsession. Also, letting your penis hang in the water of public toilets. You need help, bro. Me? I ALREADY TOLD YOU -- I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM, I JUST NEED A SHORTER PENIS!

Hit the jump to see the rest, then head to Jude's website to see them all in high-res (and purchase prints if you're interested).

I love all of God's creatures...right next to the mashed potatoes.

That's got to be photoshop! Shadows are wrong.

I'm holding out until a Kentucky Fried Chocobo opens near my house.

A bacon-loving vegetarian from Alabama. You're a twisty dude.

I suppose you could bake Mrs PacMan into a pie. And a pie is just an alternative fleshlight. Although I prefer peach pie.

I'll gobble her peach cobbler.

I think it'd be cool to have a diced Mario or Samus cutlets as well. Toad soup, too.

Another "graphic artist" with too much time on his hands. BTW copyright infringement *cough cough*.

I would om nom nom the crap out of that Yoshi.

@9: Nope, not copyright infringement. Parody artwork. There is a definite difference. The artist credited the original characters to Nintendo, which puts it into the parody category. If they had said "Hey, these characters are ALL MINE," then yes, it would be copyright infringement.

These works are perfectly legal. That's why "Fan Art" is also perfectly legal, so long as the artists don't try to claim the characters as their own.

Tell em Jonnyyy

I love Nintendo Maki

Jonathan's absolutely right. These would be great as T-shirts.


woah woah woah gw is a vegetarian? damn it gw you said you loved bacon and here i was doing a project on whos my hero and i was going to put you pfft not now i cant put some hippie as my hero.....fucking douche

i like to smoke sausage... but that doesnt mean i eat it when i have finished....

Oh my god. I want so many of these as tshirts!

@11 It's debateable imo.

@17: Okay there, Judith Griggs.

You're wrong. Your opinion is wrong. This is not debatable. The artist is a) making no money off of sales regarding these characters and b) claims no ownership of these characters. If you were correct, police could bust into your house and arrest your child for drawing Barney the Dinosaur in crayon.
