An explosive viral meme has been sweeping the gamer corners of social media sites. The meme poses the question of who would win in a fight between the iconic brothers Mario and Luigi from the Super Mario Bros, versus the diabolical fallen angel Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.
On January 15th, 2023, Twitter user @GirlSephiroth posted the hypothetical match-up in a versus thread she had created earlier in the day. The post went viral gaming 14,000 retweets and 2900 likes over the next three days. The overwhelming consensus of the gaming community is that, judging by the feats they have displayed in each of their games, Mario and Luigi would handily defeat Sephiroth. This led many users to post humorous videos depicting how easily the Mario Bros. would defeat Sephiroth particularly using the Bros Attacks from the Mario and Luigi game series.
The meme quickly left Twitter and has spread to all corners of social media with videos, fanart, and more cropping up all over TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram. The meme shows no signs of slowing down as more gamers become aware of this hypothetical battle. What are your thoughts on this clash? Does the One-Wined Angel stand any chance against the mighty Mario Bros.?
