The Hottest Piece of Fan Art?

So I am whistling innocently through my day, thinking about calling it a day and fiddling around with the SDvR 2010 Story Editor some more and then passing out. Still, I figure it would be a good idea to check my e-mail. I peep something from one of my best mates, with an attachmen t called "SexySmashBros.jpg". Bracing myself, I click and find myself staring at:
 

The Ladies of Smash
The Ladies of Smash
So. A bit of back story. I am something of a reluctant consumer of fan art, and especially of the particular field of what I would call cross-genre bleeding, IE, taking a piece of one fandom and combining it with another. So this is already in my wheelhouse. Add the fact that I have an additional fondness for drag kings (don't ask)  and you might as well have found me the Holy Grail dipped in chocolate and pudding.
 
Granted, I have all of the above biases so I might not be the best judge. But still. I'd say pretty hott. Two Ts.
 
Any other candidates?
 
(Sidenote to Mods and such: While the above picture does cover all the "naughty bits", I also recognize it is pretty risque, especially the Peachachu. If you feel it violates the general guidelines of the forums, please free to nuke and/or lock this thread and get rid of the pic. Thank you and goodnight.)

Thats pretty hot. The thing is tho. I really do not want my Nintendo ladies to be hot. I want them to be cute. Some things should not be sexy. I am a big fan of sexy and most things should really be sexy. But not Peach and Co.

Naughty boys with too much imagination and too much time?   
 
I have never thought of Pikachu in that way, but I would actually play a Solid Snake game if he looked like that  ^-^

That's one of the creepier fan art pictures I've ever seen.
 
Pretty awesome though.

That hardly ranks on the creepy scale for me.  I've seen far, far worse.
 
That being said, it's a really good picture.

I actually think that the Solid Samus is fairly inspired, though other people have certainly made the comparison. The other two are mostly just silly (and yes, slightly unsettling) cosplay, though I think on some level it would have been just as easy and far more obvious to have Peach be Mario and Zelda be Link; by stepping outside of those pre-concieved expectations, I think it creates something abit more captivating. Because it isn't what is expected, it entertains a bit more attention.
 
 But Samus as Snake draws the comparisons between the two characters and makes a fairly striking image, I believe. The other two are just silly mash-ups with nothing beyond the initial confusion of sorting out the two iconographic languages, but I would play a Metroid game that borrowed stealth mechanics from Metal Gear. Say, stealing armor upgrades for the first half while avoiding contact with space pirates that would otherwise blow you away, before getting all geared up and getting the satisfaction of enpowerment.
 
And yes, I did just wank philosophical about a silly oversexed drawing of video game characters dressed up like other video game characters. I'm a liberal arts major, we can make anything deeper than it actually is.
