Original Idea by Lucas EB2. Executed by Hyruleboy.

This one is using the famous "what is a man" conversation from Castlevania, which was also used the really hard freeware game, I Wanna be the Guy, which is where the game over screen was ripped, and it might take playing that game to get the punchline.
