It seems like cross sections of toys and animals is a hot topic to be illustrating, and these are some pretty fine examples. Created by Jude Buffum as part of the show Pixel Pushers, sponsored by SCION and curated by Giant Robot, these wonderful diagrams explore the innards and meaty possibilities of some beloved video game characters, including Bowser, Yoshi, Ganon from Legends of Zelda, Chocobo from Final Fantasy, and the flying fish and octopus from Super Mario Bros. To see the full collection, check out Jude’s blog post about it! A word from the artist:

… I decided to explore the carnivorous side of the world of video games. Though I myself eat meat, enough of my friends and loved ones are now vegetarians or vegans, so it’s something I’ve been experimenting with. I suppose these pieces are a by-product of that exploration. That, and my long-time obsession with meat diagrams.
