Klein Tsuboi, the legendary Elden Ring player better known as Let Me Solo Her, has been gifted a real sword and other items by publisher Bandai Namco. The beloved figure is known for helping players defeat the endgame boss Malenia by fighting her single-handedly while wearing only a jar for a hat. The famous Elden Ring player has become a multiplayer legend, and now Bandai Namco has officially acknowledged the folk hero.
First appearing shortly after Elden Ring's release, Let Me Solo Her quickly rose to prominence thanks to his undeniable skill and questionable fashion sense. As his name implies, Let Me Solo Her became famous for defeating Malenia one-on-one while his cooperative allies watched in awe. The Elden Ring player also refused to wear armor, instead using speed and agility to survive against the Goddess of Rot's onslaught of sword swipes. Following his ascension to legendary status Tsuboi began streaming his victories against Malenia for the Elden Ring community to enjoy. Then, in May 2022, Let Me Solo Her restarted Elden Ring following his 1,000th victory against the Blade of Miquella.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

A Twitter post from Klein Tsuboi shows off an impressive collection of physical relics, including an actual sword, sent to him by Bandai Namco. The gift package is seemingly meant to honor Let Me Solo Her's 1,000th victory over Malenia and the icon subsequently restarting Elden Ring. The amazing case includes a wood carving of Tsuboi's nemesis Malenia, a physical map of the Lands Between and an illustration of the jar-wearing warrior. A physical sword, engraved with the phrase "Rise, Tarnished," is the crown jewel of this Elden Ring collection.
Thank you @BandaiNamcoUS and @ELDENRING for giving me this gift and congratulating me for being #LetMeSoloHer . I can still remember my first experience with the soulsborne series and almost quitting because of Iudex Gundyr in Dark souls 3. I'm glad I persisted and (1/3) pic.twitter.com/w2FF77HRnO— KleinTsuboi (@TsuboiKlein) July 6, 2022
LimitBreakers, BonfireVN and many others. I hope they know that they have inspired me to be who I am today and continue to be awesome. Thank you everyone! -Let me solo her— KleinTsuboi (@TsuboiKlein) July 6, 2022
The Elden Ring gift set rewarded to Let Me Solo Her has also been sent to other content creators and collaborators. For example, FromSoftware sent Mistborn author Brandon Sanderson a sword back in April 2022. The beloved fantasy author had previously expressed disappointment that George R.R. Martin had gotten to work on Elden Ring, despite the fact that Sanderson himself is a huge fan of FromSoftware's games. In an apparent effort to keep the door open for a collaboration, Sanderson was sent the physical sword and wood carving alongside a note expressing interest in a future partnership.
Let Me Solo Her has made a massive impact on the Elden Ring community, with the jarhead Tarnished helping hundreds of players beat Malenia the Blade of Miquella. His distinct style and breathtaking skill have led to countless tributes from across the gaming industry, and now Bandai Namco itself has acknowledged his feats. While Let Me Solo Her may be in the midst of a new playthrough, his legacy will never be tarnished.
