Mario Bros, Pokemon, Zelda Characters Reimagined As Super-Hot Bears

A sexy new challenger approaches!

We’ve seen Disney princes turned into twinks and cartoon characters redrawn as drag queens, but now artist Leonardo Gutierrez is showing the bear community a little love with his sexy reimagining of Super Smash Bros. characters.

Partnering with his friend Ian, Gutierrez is turning his drawings into fashion statements with their shop OSO Apparel, described on their Facebook page as “Bear apparel for bear-lovers, geeks and fashion-forward folk.”

The artist created 12 Smash Bros. drawings in all, including one that sees Donkey Kong go from a gorilla to a bear, and another that features Pikachu in nothing more than a yellow tank top. Those two drawings and the reimagining of Mario and Link are the only four bear-inspired characters that the duo is currently selling as tees, but you can check out some of our favorites depictions below and then head here to see the rest of his work.
