Elden Ring Actually Lets You Summon Mike Tyson
Hold onto your ears because Mike Tyson is about to massacre Malenia, rip through Radahn, and murder Mohg. That's right, the former world heavyweight champion boxer is ready to KO the competition in Elden Ring. Even though FromSoftware's latest Souls-like is a formidable foe, we imagine the Shardbearers are quaking in their boots about now.
While we've seen bizarre builds of Homer Simpson, Sonic the Hedgehog, and now even Darth Vader, they're no match to Kid Dynamite lacing up his gloves for Elden Ring. Now, some unknown vigilante has taken on the form of Tyson and is stepping into the ring to help us beat the bosses.
Why Is Mike Tyson In Elden Ring?
Posting on Reddit, u/andyj610 shared the bizarre incident that Mike Tyson popped by to lend them a hand. As you can imagine, the thread was soon filled with lisp jokes. One joked, "I wana thummon Mike tython," while another added, "Let me tholo him" (more on that later). Yeah, good luck making them to Tyson's face.
In co-op, you can summon others to help with your quest. It comes in handy when you're facing an OP boss and are sweating at the concept of tackling them alone, but even with a full squad of pals, it's not exactly easy to take on the game's hardest bosses. Sadly, there's no confirmation on how handy this summon was and whether the virtual character lived up to Iron Mike's real-life legacy.
Others said this isn't the first pop culture favourite they've seen jump into battle. Another commenter said they've seen Wolverine, Lord Farquad, and even Jesus Christ himself. Well, that sounds like some sort of Multiverse squad that Malenia and co. should be scared of. It's unclear who is behind the Mike Tyson build, but just imagine if it's the man himself.
Is Mike Tyson The New Let Me Solo Her?
None of us were really that bothered about Elden Ring's co-op, with the mode adding a bit of a boost to your play but never being anything much of note. Also, there's nothing more frustrating than doing a summon, only to end up with some Level 1 Wretch that is as much use as Alexander the pot guy. That was until Let Me Solo Her became the stuff of legend.
Arriving on the Elden Ring scene last month, Let Me Solo Her was an anonymous player, dressed in their underwear and sporting a pot on their head. Taking on the might of Malenia, the masked hero made light work of the game's hardest boss and became a memeworthy addition to Elden Ring lore. Since then, we've had the likes of Let Me Solo Him to best Mohg, and now, it looks like Mike is joining the party. We like to think that George R.R. Martin would add some tattooed boxer to canon in the inevitable Elden Ring sequel, but wait and see.
