Starship Koopas by pheeph Starship Koopas by pheeph
I've been working on this one for several days... and it's my first ever attempt at shading the pic... It's not my best since shading is generally not my forté...

In this pic, I decided to give the Mario series the Starship Troopers-treatment... and I call it "Starship Koopas". I was going to call it "Starship Troopas", but there was already a title in deviantart... Imagine Bowser's Koopa Troop in this military gear with automatic rifles... I never read the 1959 novel by Robert Heinlein... I only saw the 1997 film. This is largely based on the poster of the 1997 film.

Imagine them trying to fight the Antlions from the Half-Life games (which almost look like the Bugs from the film.)

That kind of encounter is going to cause a massacre... on the Koopa side...

Like how the humans were being slaughtered left and right in the film? Because the Antlion Guards are very tough to beat.

Koopa reporter: We have just landed here in the Mushroom Kingdom, codenamed Big M! It's an ugly kingdom, a plumber kingdom! A kingdom hostile to life as we know it...*two Mario clones start ripping apart the reporter*
Koopa Rico: Go go go! Get outta here NOW! *a Luigi clone shoots a green fireball at him, and everything goes black...*
100000 Koopa Troopas dead in one hour...would you like to know more?

I can imagine that...

I can also imagine one Koopa saying "Remember your training" and ends up being the first koopa to get ripped apart...

But how could all the countless Marios and Luigis rip the koopas apart? They don't have claws the way the Arachnids do.

yeah, but they say that the movie didn't accurately portray whatever was in the novel...

The koopas may gun people down before such a stunt is pulled...

if the koopas had guns in the games it'd be a whole new level of difficulty.

I've read that it was the Starship Troopers film (or the novel) that influenced the design of the Halo series...

that makes it even MORE of a ripoff! it's similar a game that's based on the same francise, it's also based on? what a mess!

The game design was just... dry. no 1 thing that disturbed me was that all soldiers next to you looked excactly the same, and they don't even help you much.

might aswell bought... Halo!

So, you're another Starship Troopers fan, huh?
While the movie is... actually not too bad, the book is definitely way better.
You should also totally give the CGI animated series, Roughnecks: Starship Troopers a shot, too. A damn good series from 1999-2002.
