Game information[edit | edit source]

ClayFighter 63⅓ is a fighting video game released for the Nintendo 64 by Interplay in 1997. Its title is a parody of other games released for the Nintendo 64 at the time, many of which were popular franchises with "64" suffixed (such as Super Mario 64). A later version of the game, ClayFighter: Sculptor's Cut, released for rental only, is one of the rarest and most expensive N64 games.

Like its predecessors ClayFighter and C2 Judgement Clay, Clayfighter 63⅓ uses stop motion animation and claymation as opposed to traditional computer animation to produce a unique effect. Its title was a play on the fact that many of the titles for the N64, at the time, had been labeled with the number 64 after the title (Pilotwings 64, Super Mario 64, etc.). It is also an homage to The Naked Gun movie series titles, particularly Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult.

The arenas in ClayFighter 63⅓ are unique in that each one, with several exceptions, houses multiple rooms; during fights players can punch or kick their opponents into different rooms and the fight will then continue in that room. There are 26 different rooms to fight in. Originally planned for release on 3DO's M2 console, the game initially had a much darker tone.

The game itself parodies other fighting games. It uses a 3-level bar for super combos like in Street Fighter Alpha and uses parries like Street Fighter III, and many of the super attacks are noticeably variations of attacks from the Street Fighter series. It also features a combo system similar to Killer Instinct, although it makes fun of the combo names (for example, "Itty Bitty Combo", or "Triple Brown Betty Combo", even as high as a 234 hit combo, which is known as "Insane Combo"). It also parodies Mortal Kombat's fatalities with silly sequences (they are called Claytalities). Michael Buffer, the announcer, begins each match with a variation of his famous catchphrase: "Let's get ready to crumble!", a play on "Let's get ready to rumble". During battle you can use many different attacks which have their own strengths and weaknesses.
