Elden Ring may not be exactly like The Lord of the Rings, but it contains enough swords, sorcery and grotesque monsters to make the High King of Gondor feel at home. At least, that’s what a new fan-made mashup indicates, as it shows Aragorn running, fighting, and smashing his way through the Lands Between.
YouTuber eli_handle_b edited various clips from Peter Jackon’s Elden Ring film trilogy, stitching them all together into a one-minute video. Aragorn fits beautifully into the fantasy landscape, but what’s most impressive is how the clips have been carefully put together to match his actions to his surroundings.
At one point, he hits a mounted Tree Sentinel. At another, he puts his hand on a player message to read it. Later, he confronts Margit and even kicks Pot Boy good.
It is 60 seconds long and well worth watching.
This is a fun little meta game to try and figure out which scenes from the Lord of the Rings movies were taken from. The moment Aragon charges towards the camera with two skeleton militiamen by his side is clearly pulled from the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, where he rushes into the fray alongside the army of the dead.
Looks like the scene where Aragorn enters an underground lake is edited from when the Fellowship enters the Mines of Moria, and the scene where Viggo Mortensen kicks an Uruk-hai helmet and s Broken toe is replaced by him kicking poor Iron Fist Alexander from the back.
Eli_handle_b has done a lot of mashups like this before. They replaced Mass Effect’s Captain Shephard with Austin Powers last year, having placed Mr Bean in Cyberpunk 2077 and Walter White in Half-life 2.
This isn’t the first time Middle-earth characters have entered the Middle-earth either. An Elden Ring player has recorded himself and a friend prancing around the action-RPG to recreate Frodo and Sam’s journey from the Shire to Mount Doom.
Another player figured out how to effectively transform into a Sith Lord by equipping a specific range of incantations and donning black robes. It looks very elegant, indeed.
