In 2001, Zhu Zhiqiang began uploading a series of martial arts animations featuring stick figures to Newgrounds.com. The name of the series was Xiao Xiao.

I wasted so much time on this, and the spin off sites. Amazing stuff. Cheers!

Somewhere on a lonely forgotten directory of one of my hardrives, exist all of these movies in the original formats.

Also, Red Vs. Blue in realplayer format. And a bunch of Homestar Runner rips.

I am old.

And now I remember being SOOOOO frustrated they never released Mutilator 3.

Sigh.

Kind put me off the whole trend.

I remember playing the vaguely FPS one with some friends in the computer lab and feeling like we were getting away with something.

Also from this era Ninjai - original site dead but mirror of episodes 1-12 here - (warning : stylish flash violence and cheesy voicedubs)

I loved Xiao Xiao. The FPS flash games were awesome.

Oh man. I loved this. One of my favorite early viral videos/memes.

Was Madness related to this in any way? I think I still have that somewhere. Looks similar, but more guns and zombie Jesus.
