Earlier this month we found out that M-rated action star Bayonetta would be one of the final competitors added to Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. I asked our image-manipulating community to put her in all the games. They did not disappoint.

We had many outstanding entries, though several of them wound up disqualified. My exact words were “ something recognizable as Bayonetta is in some sort of video game”, so if you went with a movie or historical photo or bucket of chicken, great job! Also, bad job. I love you all, but guidelines are there to guide and be lines.


My favorite game-themed entry comes from good old Sillstaw, who did something naughty to a piece of classic edutainment. I’ve a feeling young boys and girls would have looked much harder for this version.

Possibly a controversial choice, but I am an old man. So old.
