Flash MX 2004 is an animation program which is based on Macromedia History. The products of this program will be based on famous events which actually took place in Ancient History.

So here's this giant enemy crab battle.

EDIT: Frontpage? Not bad for a movie misinterpretating genital diseases. I'm putting up a list of references, should you be left feeling confused at certain jokes.

1) Ryoga coming home from work - "The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole" has a diary entry which contemplates what (theoretically) Jack the Ripper's wife's diary would look like.

2) The Giant Enemy Crab - the most obvious reference in the whole thing. Naturally it ties in with Sony' round at the E3 showing, and the game Genji 2. The description for the movie parodies the claims made about the game, citing historical accuracy and then advertising the titular creature.

3) "599 US DOLLARS" - a hysterical retelling of the PS3 price announcement. Would have preferred a Dr. Evil rendition of it, but what can you do?

4) "Use the carving knife on the crab" - a lot of point-and-click adventures require you to use something on something.

5) "MASSIVE DAMAGE" - again, a Genji 2 line.

6) "RIDGE RACER" - another Sony line.

7) "HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER" - Soul Blade/Edge/Calibur/Somet
hing voice, kindly donated by Borisz. The term of a new contender does appear prominently in fighting games.

8) "REAL TIME WEAPON CHANGE" - another Genji 2 line.

9) "DEMO VERSION" - and another.

10) Knife > Crab - Super Mario Bros 3. Throw a hammer or something at an enemy and watch it die.

11) Ballet dancing - this one's complicated. Basically inspiration from a Looney Tunes cartoon wherein two characters end the scene by taking up ballet-dancing.

12) The red bar in the credits (and at first the text) is presented in the style of Sonic 3, in particular the opening for each zone.

Note also that the character has a light-saber of sorts. He's been seen before - in "Death Nadir Episode 0".

I'll update if anything else comes up.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


The thing moved way too slow to be funny, and pointing out the references made it stupid. When you make a joke, people will understand it or they won't, so don't bother trying to explain it. It's not funny if you have to explain it. You could have done something a lot funnier and faster, and more suitable for the theme. Not front page worthy.

Steven-M responds:

If I didn't point them out, people would complain. And when I do, people complain. It's so unfair, I'm totally going to go and slit my wrists while listening to Linkin Park. WOOF. Thanks for critique!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

love your style

everything was great, but your style is what really stood out

Steven-M responds:

"Style"? Graphical, aural, interacativical? Ah, well. Thanks for watching the movie!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


The guy below me just doesn't get that its a cartoon with humor similar to that of looney toons or something... *nods head shamefully* when will
the growse perverted freaks at newgrounds ever learn... hmm? Oh! right! your animation... it was good, keep it up!

Steven-M responds:

Growse... k. Well, thanks for commenting!


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Nope. Sorry

That wasn't funny at all and it's sad that you have to explain your joke references. That doesn't make them anymore funny.

Steven-M responds:

Bye bye, Sony fanboy person!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

It had a few stupid parts.

But it was nice. I loved the two thumbs up after he beats the crab though.

Not as good as the MGS Crab Battle, but somewhat close.

Steven-M responds:

Any comparison to Crab Battle the Original can only be seen as a good thing. Thanks for watching the movie!
