Classic. Also reminded me of Xiao Xiao.


salxicha

Came here to say this. Xiao Xiao was amazing at the time


BeardedAsian

I feel like I saw this on ebaums world but maybe it was just one video or so of it back then Regardless, nostaaaaalgia


Carboneraser

Did any of y'all go on fluidanims? Animators create their own heroes and then battle against eachother Only one I remember is FLLFFL (ALFA) Edit: fluidanims merged with stickpage in 2012


blirrrr

Xiao xiao 3 is top tier. Takes me back to my school days


waka_flocculonodular

Hell yeah, same here. Good times.


FutureMode

Was that the ones with the yoyo guy? He was always so cool! Edit; I believe it was fluidanims and the animator was hyun

Ebaums shamelessly stole content from all over back then, cropped out watermarks and aggressively refused to link back to the proper creators for, I dunno, fear that traffic was somehow limited quantity or something. It was a massive content aggregate, but Eric Bauman and his old man were huge sacks of shit.

Thank you for this comment. What a trip down memory lane I’ve just had!


Stalwart_Vanguard

Was that the game? Man that was awesome


AnnihilationOrchid

There was a flash game within the xiao xiao series, it was xiaoxiao 4 if I'm not mistaken. And a few from others. But they were mostly flash animations. I used to do them too. It was truly great.


TechnicallyAnIdiot

Was that the animation with the bunnies? Lightsabers and stuff?


extralyfe

Xiao Xiao were the flash animations of the stick figures having epic martial arts fights, much like this. I honestly don't know if Xiao Xiao was the name of the dude who did them, or if it was the name of the series... one sec. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiao_Xiao looks like it was the name.


Huge_Flying_Lizard

It is a name


mcnathan80

His name was Robert Paulson


Battlesheep64

Spinuccix

Xiao Xiao 3 was the most epic. It was just revolutionary, specially the ending.

Xiao xiao was the stick fighting Madness was the grey dudes, Jesus and clown The bunnies I think was called Bunny Kill


Nyxu

Bunnykill. It's on youtube. The animator since dropped the project- some fans have continued it but they don't quite have the same style. Music by turmion kätilöt.

8Humans

The only stick page I know of is [stickpage.com](https://stickpage.com) but it's long dead since flash was disabled.


JIIThe_JokerIIK

That one is from back in the day 🤣 I remember seeing this back in middle or highschool


Amish_guy_with_WiFi

Damn so they just *sticking* old videos on tiktok now?


JIIThe_JokerIIK

Old as fuck videos, acting like they’re of their own creation, to benefit off the tireless work of someone else, day after day week after weeeek; to call it their own 🤣


dave-train

I looked up the account on tiktok, hoping that it was actually the original creator just reuploading on a new platform. Turns out, it's even worse than what you said - they're doing all that, AND using the videos to promote their mobile game about stick men.


BP_Oil_Chill

I feel like that's illegal


dave-train

Come to think of it, you're probably right - I went back and reported it on tiktok


JIIThe_JokerIIK

I feel it’s so unfair to the people who spent their time, making it, to have some half assed guy take it as their own


CTeam19

Any video with that tiktok tag at the end of a video I know I have seen before I have started to downvote them.


mymymy23

That’s correct. (We say as we are also watching said old video on Reddit)


elegantloba

Just like reddit


Bil13h

Reminds me of pivot. Surprised not to see it mentioned here at all, wonder if it's still available, I used to make sooooo many of these back in high-school in computer class, never any this good but some were twice as long. It's really fun, imma go check if it's still available, you should too! It's really fun and super simple to get started Yep, still available :D I just downloaded Pivot 4, but Pivot 2.2.7 is still available and is much closer to what I used to use 12+ years ago lol


Theopeo1

Oh man Pivot just sent me back 15 years in time, thanks for reminding me of the countless hours i spent in Pivot trying to animate stick animals realistically


Bil13h

Right!?!?! I completely forgot about it til I saw this video, just did a quick one of a guy waving so hard he actually ends up flying away, crash back into a handspring into super hero landing and ends it with a wave in pose Fuck I miss this software lol


aprofessionalfuckup

Yes!! Holy shit. Im about to scour my old youtube channel, I swear i uploaded so many pivot videos with My Chemical Romance playing in the background. Oh middle school me was so cool


Bil13h

Lmao!!!! For me it was Avenged Sevenfold in the background of all mine xD what are the odds ahahaha I thought I was the only one adding music to my fight scenes lmao


Theopeo1

I am also guilty of this, I used Linkin Park of course The edge was real


Bil13h

Riiiight ahaha that's hilarious


Vkmies

Pivot was amazing and the community provided so many readily made assets. I remember downloading dozens of huge packs of different kinds of guns and cars and characters. Loved coming up with scenarios and trying to make them happen in an impressive way. It made me realize that I am *not* that into animation, but also that I *am* into narratives and media studies.


Garbear119

Fun fact: The beta for Pivot 5 is actually out there. I'm not allowed to distribute it outside of my server but if you're interested, check out the dark demon discord. It's got some pretty neat stuff coming to it :)

vleessjuu

I recommend you check out [One Finger Death Punch](https://store.steampowered.com/app/264200/One_Finger_Death_Punch/), if you don't know it yet.


Azn_Bwin

And[ Stick Fight the Game](https://store.steampowered.com/app/674940/Stick_Fight_The_Game/) as well if you have friends to play with, that game bring back some nostalgia from those animation.


giggity_0_0

Did you ever play stick RPG? Fuckin best game as a kid lol


The-J-StandsForJiant

I remember playing the first, grinding until maxing out my stats, and then just...waiting for something to happen.

I used to make stick people flip books in middle school. I should get back at that


spacepilot_3000

Anybody remember that stick man animator software? I made so many little short flicks with that, inspired by these animations. Of course, they were terrible but I learned a lot about frame animation and motion design in middle school Edit: yes, Pivot! Everyone talks about how MySpace helped us learn html/css but Povot taught me 2d animation


VampireSomething

That would be Pivot! I spent so much time on this as a kid. It's website still exist iirc!

You guys remember there was ugly looking website youtube.com? Some people just made up some drama and others replied with their counter drama. Pffft that site ain't got future.


FiskFisk33

Do you remember the competitor google video? I lost some stuff when they shut down :(


1stOnRt1

video.google.com was the best. You could just download any video that anyone else uploaded Fuck paying Itunes for movies and TV for my IpodVideo, I could just rip the .mp4 from google


HandsomelyAverage

You sound like someone who wasn’t around for the early days of YouTube. The only drama back then was whether to leave Britney alone or not.


Coolrafid100

Facts. During the early days we watched Annoying Orange and Stampylonghead videos


jacksalssome

Ah, utube.com?


16yYPueES4LaZrbJLhPW

There was 0 drama on YouTube back then. Nobody was big enough to cause drama.


freezersnowcone

There were some others that followed Stickdeath.com In the mid to late 2000's. Xgen was one of them, the others are escaping me. But this animation definitely reminds me of the later SD inspired website animations.


RadioMessageFromHQ

> Xgen Were these the guys that made / hosted Fishy and Motherlode? Long forgotten doors in my memory are flying open.


leekyo1999

U guys talking about xgenstudio?


Neverjust_the_tip

Playing these games during computer class was like crack to us kids back then.


llMezzll

Stick death and DBZ was all the rage with my friend group back in that time. I used to make flip books in art class with DBZ inspired sticks fighting to death.


Thosepassionfruits

I can hear the linkin park playing faintly in the background while playing RuneScape in another browser tab.


daboring1

I can't remember "new tab" being a thing back then, I think you just had to open another window of explorer


Thosepassionfruits

Shit. You’re 100% correct haha.


UncleTedGenneric

Xiao Xiao was the shit


donkeybong64

For real, it's insane to see tiktok kids circling back to 2000s internet content. I imagine it's a similar feeling that an old person has when they see pink floyd shirts at walmart

disfunctionaltyper

so stickmanplanet is reposting 20 years old video as his own and reddit is reposting a pro reposter here in unexpected?


solsangraal

you're surely referring to [xiao xiao](https://youtu.be/O3sexvJM5Go), but i don't think this is that they didn't have OP's framerate and resolution 20 years ago


Enverex

The later stick figure stuff was Flash and vector based, so they could scale infinitely to any resolution without quality loss.


Kingmudsy

Sure, you could improve the resolution if you had the source files and a way to run Flash! If all that’s left is a shitty video rip on YouTube, then you’re stuck with that. And the frame rate isn’t going to change in either scenario.


heddpp

The frame rate can change if it was done with keyframes and interpolation. It's only not possible for purely frame by frame animation.


Kingmudsy

Good point, I guess my understanding of interpolation might be a little flawed. I’ve always assumed that really stuttery animations like Xiao Xiao are frame by frame! I guess if you were willing to bring in outside tools you could use animation upscaling software? Not sure, really. We’ve reached the limit of my domain knowledge haha


theonlydidymus

In old flash you would set your own frame rate while animating and iirc higher frame rates both made animation a more complex process and they required more power/load times. It’s been a long time since I’ve dealt with it but you’ll find that a lot of solid old flash stuff had <30 FPS.


silly_red

No this isn't xiao xiao... there's several communities around stick animation like RHG. Though not sure that's still around. I've seen this animation years back, 5 years minimum. 20 is an exaggeration but I think the point of their comment was quite clear.


freezersnowcone

Holy hell, how did I forget about Xiao Xiao? Is this what it feels like to be old? I love it.


FunkeeLover

Does every video now come with a Tik Tok stamp on it This video is as old as time


kingape

Came here to say the same thing. Real tired of seeing Tik Tok on everything.

yuricacaroto34

Me 7 years ago on pivot animations


alhade27

YOOOO I LOVED THAT


Kir4_

Yeah.. searching for hours for tings like weapons and such, spending hours on animating then turns out I have no idea what I'm doing and it all looks like shit, get sad and back to watching animation Vs animator.


waltjrimmer

> spending hours on animating then turns out I have no idea what I'm doing and it all looks like shit, get sad and back to watching Woah, woah, woah. Now, listen. I am TERRIBLE at animation. The handful of things I've made are bad, okay? But I made them. They got done. Did I put in the time and work to become a better animator? No. But that's my own doing. Can I look back on some of them and still like them? Yeah. They're dumb. They're bad. But they're fun to me. The point I'm trying to make is, you can't take one run at a wall and give up when you can't jump over it. Make something small and stupid that you like. Learn from it. Get better. Keep doing it. Over and over and over again. Get a little better each time. It works. It's how everyone who is really good at anything got there. Seriously. While some people can luck into certain lots in life, all skills take practice. No one just has them. Pivot is still around. And there are better things. I changed to using GIMP because PIVOT, while a helpful tool, was really restricting in some things I wanted to do. (I'm not suggesting GIMP. That was a pain in the ass to get right. I'm certain I was doing it wrong.) So, you know, get back at it. Go make something stupid that only you will like. Make it just three seconds long or something. It doesn't need to be the epic that people who spent years refining their skills on made as a final product, it's your starting point.


Kir4_

Hah thanks that was really nice. I was just making fun of myself as this was years ago and I was a kiddo but still was enjoying myself. But that's some solid and motivating advice! I am actually about to finish uni in graphic design. I now know animation is not my thing really as I've had a taste of it in school and such. But yeah it takes time and practice to be good at anything but it is a journey worth taking because at some point you'll just realise you actually know something. Just recently got paid for my first design gig and it was the greatest feeling ever.


ForCom5

Phew, you just took me waaaay back. Don't even remember where I got that from, it just kinda happened one day.


ImpedeNot

Yeah holy shit. I had completely forgotten about that old thing. Many a summer afternoon was spent with my friends making stick animations.


tehWoody

Surprised no one has linked Alan Becker, the man who first went big with stick figures fighting in the Animation vs Animator series: [Animator vs. Animation (original)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npTC6b5-yvM)

that's who i thought of straight away and im only 25


Wolfiie_Gaming

He has changed the way people animate stick figures. Animation vs Animator episode 5. Especially part 4 of it.

Stick figure death theater. Used to watch these back in late 90s , the pain was real, not from watching the stick figures , but waiting 10 minutes for one of these videos to load .

This is a very good perspective on being a good martial artist. You can kick all kinds of ass, but if you get shot, you're still fucked. That's why one, you don't get into violence unless given no alternative for your safety and two, if you're going to, end it as quickly as you can or escape, cause if they pull out and unexpected weapon, you're done son

KHRONMAN420

This flooded my mind with memories of stickpage or the early days of youtube. This one in particular reminded me of Terkoiz' "Shock" series or Xiao Xiao, man I miss those days of spending hours watching these or trying to create my own and failing horribly. Good times....


nicethrowmeaway

Well, it prolly reminded you of Terkoiz because he was the one who animated this! The animation is [RUSHED2](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jmkA0vfpss).


TurdleShell_

as someone who used to be part of this community that is, to and extend, very much still alive rn. seeing this tiktok repost reposted on reddit feels just... cringe. im p sure this animation is part of or a tribute to the Rushed collab. either on Stickpage or Hyuns Dojo. i dont remember how old it is.


nicethrowmeaway

Animation source is [RUSHED2](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jmkA0vfpss) by [Terkoiz](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaRCmNEwsoJEiRCaxxJSrVw). ​ That reposter should've at least had the decency to leave the "Rushed2" and "ANIMATED BY PHIL" part of the animation.
