let me alone she already defeated the hardest boss in Elden Ring 1,000 times. There are 165 bosses in the game and he killed one of them six times more. The definitive Elden Ring folk hero, who has been immortalized with 3D models, fan art and imitatorsbroadcast the final fight to thousands of people yesterday and, intentionally or not, almost stood alone in the final minutes of the battle.
The first phase of his thousandth kill in Malenia seems pretty subdued, or as subdued as a flawless fight with the game’s most notoriously difficult boss can get. Let Me Solo Her, with its naked body and helmet, cut her health without taking a single hit. Then, as Malenia prepared for round two, he rocked the game’s iconic theme song.
The theme roared as Let Me Solo Her leapt around the winged rot goddess and scraped off her health. Things were going just as well as they had been for the last two hours of the stream, but then Malenia rose into the air and sent clones of herself to attack him. Let Me Solo Her rolled away from the first two and was caught in the third attack. Her health has dropped to a fraction of her health bar. Any single attack, any small deviation of dodge time would finish our hero and yet he kept going.
It was at this moment that I think all of the 7,000+ viewers on the broadcast realized that no matter how low their health bar, Let Me Solo Her was always dancing on the brink of death. There is no difference between 100% health or 10%; it is not dead until it reaches zero. I like to believe he just drank a vial of healing to let us all catch our breath.
When he took a hit again several seconds later and still didn’t flinch, they were all on the same page. This fight was basically over, it was just a matter of watching Let Me Solo Her close. He watched as Malenia launched a few more jabs and jabs, and when she landed a final blow to the ground, he lunged towards her and delivered the killing blow.
If you watched it live, you would have seen the donations coming in. It’s hard to estimate how much money people threw at Let Me Solo Her with the various coins at stake, but he certainly raised well over $1,000 by taking on Malenia and standing in his empty boss room afterwards.
In the end, the naked warrior teleported to Roundtable Hold, sat at the titular table, paused for a moment, and then started a new game. He passed the first boss (untouched, of course) and spent the final minutes of the stream sitting in Limgrave.
“Thanks everyone for all the support. I couldn’t be here without you guys,” he wrote on the stream.
“I will try to get to Malenia soon :)”
