Using Elden Ring’s character creator, one talented player recreated Nigel Thornberry from the classic Nickelodeon show The Wild Thornberrys.
One talented Elden Ring player has used the title’s extensive character creation tools to create the cartoon character Nigel Thornberry from the classic Nickelodeon show The Wild Thornberrys – with terrifying results. Since the highly-anticipated new adventure from FromSoftware released last month, players have been enjoying its character creator, a feature which has been a fan-favorite across previous games from the developer.
Like other Soulsborne titles, despite spending the game from head to toe in armor, Elden Ring‘s uncanny in-depth character creator allows players to create their Tarnished in almost any way imaginable. Receiving a lot of love since release, fans have been spotted recreating everything from Uncharted‘s Nathan Drake to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, complete with their own unique bandanas and weapon sets. While Elden Ring is known for its difficulty, traveling the Lands Between as a character from another game offers some levity to the experience.
Redditor KingBongHogger420 has shared a clip of their Elden Ring character creator version of Nigel Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys. During the short clip, the user showcases Nigel Thornberry’s facial features, including his red hair, his mustache, his long nose and pointy chin, perfectly created using the title’s extensive in-game character creation tools. Receiving positive reception from the community, other users in the comments can be seen making jokes, with quotes regarding the character straight from the show. While not the first Nickelodeon character created in Elden Ring, it’s perhaps one of the most terrifying and intimidating thanks to its hyper-realistic features.
This isn’t the first time the beloved Nigel Thornberry has appeared in a game. The classic show The Wild Thornberrys aired on Nickelodeon from 1998 to 2004, but the iconic character has remained in the cultural zeitgeist thanks to his familiar features and memorable jokes, which often make him the subject of memes. The character’s imagery and popularity have led to fans recreating the cartoon character in many titles, using character creator tools similar to Elden Ring‘s. Additionally, Nigel Thornberry has also appeared in official Nickelodeon games, with his latest feature in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, where players can make use of his close-quarters combat style and special moves.
FromSoftware’s character creators have allowed players to create atrocities and beautifully-made characters for more than a decade, and thanks to Elden Ring, Nigel Thornberry has now been added to the list. While The Wild Thornberrys and Elden Ring are completely different media properties, the fact that Nigel can be recreated in FromSoftware’s latest title makes it even more compelling. More recreations and character mods can be expected in the future to help players enjoy the experience with a lighter and less serious tone.
