In the Elden Ring community, no player has achieved more notoriety than Let Me Solo Her, a cooperative player who has been taking down Malenia for anyone lucky enough to summon them. To celebrate Let Me Solo Her’s accomplishments and contribution to the community, Elden Ring publisher Bandai Namco is sending the player a special gift.
Let Me Solo Her, also known by their online handle KleinTsuboiOW, is a truly legendary player among the Elden Ring community. Like FromSoft’s other challenging co-operative roleplaying games, players can summon one another for assistance when fighting the game’s brutally difficult bosses. Malenia is one of the most difficult late-game bosses and is a particularly troublesome encounter where summoning another helpful player can go a long way. Let Me Solo Her has taken this even further, however, by requesting that players simply stand back and watch as they take on the boss single-handedly. Thousands of players have been assisted in this manner, leading to the gamer becoming a legendary figure in the community.
Let Me Solo Her has confirmed on Reddit that they have achieved over 2,000 Malenia kills, and have reportedly lost count of the true number at this point. In an extraordinary gesture of recognition, Elden Ring‘s publisher Bandai Namco has decided to celebrate Let Me Solo Her’s achievement by sending them a personal gift. Although at this time the contents of the gift have not been revealed, there have been some issues in the process of sending it. French customs initially refused to forward the package to the United States, requiring another round of paperwork. The fact that the package failed to get through French customs makes the nature of the gift even more curious.
Besides Bandai Namco, many other people have celebrated Let Me Solo Her’s legacy in a variety of interesting ways. A New Zealand restaurant has a Let Me Solo Her drink, and another Elden Ring player has created an action figure in KleinTsuboiOW’s honor. An impressive amount of fan artwork has been made featuring the player in their iconic outfit consisting of nothing but a jar on the head, and one modder has even added Let Me Solo Her as a custom NPC to summon.
KleinTsuboiOW has stated that they are not retired, and they continue to solo Malenia for players in need while uploading YouTube videos of the process. Elden Ring is a game rich in lore and history, and now the legacy of Let Me Solo Her will forever be a part of the community’s culture.
Elden Ring is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
