In the realm of Elden Ring, where player creativity knows no bounds, one intrepid gamer undertook the challenge of recreating Jade from the Mortal Kombat universe. Elden Ring, nearing its second anniversary, maintains its popularity due to its expansive open world, providing players with the freedom to shape their experiences as they see fit. With an array of weapons and equipment at their disposal, players can tailor their loadouts to suit different playstyles or even introduce extra challenges for a truly immersive Elden Ring adventure.
Yet, among the game’s many remarkable features, the character creation process stands out as a playground for creativity. Since its launch early in 2022, players have showcased a myriad of imaginative interpretations of beloved characters from various media. While one player successfully brought Boomhauer from King of the Hill into the world of Elden Ring, another dared to summon Mortal Kombat’s Jade, but alas, the outcome was less than satisfactory.
Taking to the Elden Ring subreddit, a user named ravelwolf957 unveiled their endeavor to craft Jade based on her appearance in Mortal Kombat 11. A side-by-side comparison revealed that the final rendition fell short of the player’s aspirations, as the two characters failed to align seamlessly.
The community, ever witty and quick-witted, swiftly seized upon the comparison shots for a lighthearted jest. Many drew upon iconic lines from the Mortal Kombat series, like Dan Forden’s unforgettable “TOASTY!” or reminisced about the minigame “TEST YOUR SIGHT,” all in good-natured jest at the outcome. Some users offered constructive feedback, suggesting adjustments like elongating the face, slightly reducing the size and sharpness of the eyes, and lengthening the nose as a starting point for improvement.
Regrettably for fans of NetherRealm’s fighting franchise, Jade remains absent from the roster in Mortal Kombat 1. Her last appearance was in Mortal Kombat 11, leaving her dedicated fan base eager for her return. While Jade’s inclusion in the latest mainline game remains uncertain, NetherRealm has a history of releasing multiple DLC packs. This raises hopes that the beloved green-clad ninja might find her way into a future update, providing fans with a chance to once again wield her deadly prowess.
