Dead Fantasy is a series of fan-made CG action movies created by Monty Oum, starring a cast of characters from the Final Fantasy, Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and Kingdom Hearts game franchises, fighting it out against each other "battle royale-style" in a number of different environments, including archaic ruins and modern cities.
Since the first installment of Dead Fantasy, the series has been well-received by the fans of both game series, with trailers, previews and the installments themselves being featured at several gaming conventions. There are six movies in the series, and Oum had confirmed episodes VII, and VIII. It is unknown if these new episodes will be created due to Oum's death on February 1, 2015.
The project for the Dead Fantasy series started in July 2007 after Monty Oum gained acclaim for the creation of the fan made CG movie Haloid, which featured Metroid series's Samus Aran fighting the Halo series's Master Chief. His intention for Dead Fantasy was to create a new CG movie which featured more human characters, instead of simply "humanoid" characters, as was the case in Haloid.
While Monty used the original voices of the Dead or Alive cast, due to lack of voice clips or none at all, he used voices from different sources for the Final Fantasy characters.
The moves the girls execute are not just from their respective series. Monty Oum included salutes to many action games, manga and movies by including famous moves into Dead Fantasy, including moves from Soulcalibur, Tekken and Street Fighter. (more...)
