One of the most hyped enemies shown in the trailer is the vase monster. Although it is not revealed how it will work, a popular theory is that it will be common to the fake chest in the Dark Souls games. The tweet shows some amazing fanart of the so-called ‘vaseboy.’ Definitely less scary than the one in the trailer, but a very unique take on this enemy.

Twitter just can’t get enough of the new Vase enemy, and the memes are coming in hot. It is an unspoken rule between experienced players in the Dark Souls series to always roll on vases in the background in order to find hidden items or even secret passages (which is what @SoTypicallyTori is joking about the destruction of them).

In Elden Ring, players should think twice before rolling since an enemy could easily be hiding among the vases. In Elden Ring, no place is safe, not even the vases.
Heck yeah, peak enemy design.#ELDENRING #DarkSouls pic.twitter.com/bsmhWq1we6

One of the best memes on Twitter comes from @EXDragonith account, who jokes about?Dark Souls’ mimic chest looking at the new vase enemy as its successor. In Dark Souls, mimic chests were hidden among real chests, thus making players think twice before rushing and opening a chest. They would have to hit it first to see if it’s a fake one.
Although fans don’t know if Elden Ring will keep the mimic chests or not, in any case, the vase monster seems like the successor of the mimic, ready to create frustration among players who roll on vases without checking first.
This game is fantastic, I can’t believe how much better it looks than the things I had seen.#ELDENRING pic.twitter.com/RyBJMdpdSD

Elden Ring showcased a huge open-world environment with beautiful details and fans replicated that artwork as soon and as accurately as possible. From the?surprising new mechanic of horse riding, the challenging boss fights to the picturesque wildlands in the sunset, the numerous images selected by @antyherowow capture all the magic of the trailer with unique accuracy and precision.

The Valkyrie character is, by far, one of the most unique characters in the trailer, and the artworks for her are simply out of this world.

This image @znnavigator has chosen is probably a follow-up after her scene in the trailer. After killing the soldier, she takes a moment to breathe in her dark cave, which has a background that is similar to the bright ethereal tree shown throughout the trailer. The only difference is that it now looks darker and almost hollow.

If the Valkyrie lady was the first thing that fans got excited about then horse riding has to be the second. Elden Ring is the first of all the Soul series games to feature horse riding and mounted combat. The GIF @voidpeaches has chosen manages to capture both amazing aspects at the same time through a Valkyrie that is riding her horse, while cheering for the player. With even her eyes smiling, she seems as happy and excited as everyone else for Elden Ring.

Lady Dimitrescu, the villain from the latest resident evil game, was significantly well-received by fans. However, it seems like there’s a new sheriff in town with Elden Ring’s Valkyrie. Fans are?called to choose between the two exceptionally tall and fearsome ladies. However, despite what the tweet showcases, there does not seem to be a clear winner between the fans, with opinions favoring either side.
tall lady….. horse…. i have everything i need…. pic.twitter.com/7Mp8J5n02m

Fans are most thankful for two features from the trailer: the Valkyrie-like lady and horse riding. Both together set great foundations for Elden Ring to become an awesome game. This art features the player in a moment of appreciation of the Valkyrie and horse riding. It resembles most of the fans who are excited about these features and are generally hyped about the game. It sums up perfectly the justified hype for Elden Ring.

The art that @SkillUpYT has chosen sums up all fans’ behavior on January 21st, 2022.? A thorough explanation of why canceling plans and taking a few days off everything else will be necessary in order to enjoy the game on day 1 of its’ release. Elden Ring’s trailer has set the bar exceptionally high for the game and Twitter makes it obvious that the fans are having a hard time containing their hype.
