"Rules Of Nature" Goes With Everything is a series of videos that combine various footage of over-the-top action sequences with "Rules Of Nature," a boss battle theme from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for an enhanced viewing experience.


The theme can be heard in the tutorial level of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance[1] wherein the protagonist Raiden[2] is ambushed by Metal Gear RAY, a type of Unmanned Gears. The vocals kick in when Raiden initiates the finishing move on his enemy, which involves launching the machine upward before jumping on it and cutting off its arm, and the song returns for a reprise when he cuts off the other arm and bisects the Metal Gear.

The first parody video utilizing the theme song was posted by YouTuber KazNDS on March 8th, 2013, which featured footage of an obese woman picking up and throwing a table and subsequently blocking and dodging chairs thrown at her during a riot (shown below, left). In homage to the original Guile's Theme Goes With Everything video[3], another YouTuber by the name of RulesOfNatureFitsAll juxtaposed footage of the Super Mario Brothers live-action film with the song on April 24th, 2013, utilizing "Soundtrack Dissonance"[4] in order to make the scene seem more engaging (shown below, right).


Following the initial wave of parodies, additional montages featuring the song began to make their way onto YouTube; Versacality uploaded two volumes of moments edited to feature the song, and two other users known as Baiken 梅喧 and CesiumHippo included their own moments. Each video has over 10,000 views and over 100 "Likes".

Furthermore, more users selected single scenes from shows, films, and video games to combine with the song. The series of videos became popular enough that "Rules Of Nature Goes With Everything" became a search tag on YouTube.[5]
