There's a beautiful relationship between Doom and Animal Crossing. Besides the shared release date, they've also formed a heavy metal band.

3D Animator Andrei Mishanin brought the best of both worlds together to summon a moshpit of Nintendo characters as DOOMANIMAL, with Isabelle on drums, Tom Nook on keys, Doomguy on bass, and Marnie from Pokemon Sword/Shield on guitars. The 1-minute animated clip has the heavy metal quartet playing Mick Gordon's 'Bfg Division' from the 2016 Doom soundtrack.
I needed 5 metal/punk-ish looking villagers for the crowd, so I've picked some and Fuchsia ended up among them, and funny thing is I just found out that she is near Isabelle on the box art, I'd like to think she is a big fan and asking Isabelle for selfie or autograph🤭 pic.twitter.com/D4srZyWdas— Andrei Mishanin (@andmish) March 20, 2020
In a Twitter thread, Mishanin shares the process behind creating the DOOMANIMAL video, writing that the name was inspired by metal bands called Funeral and Cathedral.
"I needed 5 metal/punk-ish looking villagers for the crowd, so I've picked some and Fuchsia ended up among them, and funny thing is I just found out that she is near Isabelle on the box art, I'd like to think she is a big fan and asking Isabelle for selfie or autograph," the former game creator adds.
