Elden Ring: ‘Let me solo her’ call explained

Elden Ring is full of tough bosses where many see enemies like Radahn and Radagon as some of the toughest enemies in the whole game. However, no one can compare to Malenia, where Blade of Miquella is the toughest challenge available to those exploring The Lands Between. While fans have debated whether her healing and waterfowl dancing is fair, she would be a big challenge even without these abilities.

With Malenia many fall Elden Ring players, regardless of their skill level, have a large number of players resorted to summoning others so they can get help to take her down. Through these calls, rumors of “Let Me Solo Here” began to spread, with reports of this player popping up everywhere on social media platforms like Reddit. Before long, players discovered that this was very much a real person, and since then, this talented player has built up their own fan base.

The appearance of “Let Me Solo Here”

Early on, players had no idea whether “Let Me Solo Here” was real or a community joke like Elden Ring‘s dog mom. But as time went on, it became clear that this phenomenon was not a myth. Several posts were shared that had the same exact details, with fans reporting on a call sign with “Let Me Solo Here” and a very distinct outfit. Specifically, the called player did not wear any clothes at all except for a jar on top of his head. They also used two katanas, giving them an instantly recognizable look.

As more and more players reported appearances of “Let Me Solo Here”, the actual player confirmed their existence. They shared a video of themselves soloing the boss along with a picture of their character and an explanation of their actions. This post can be seen above, bringing in a staggering 64,000 up-votes and hundreds of comments praising the player. They go by KleinTsuboiOW on Reddit, and according to them, they have helped “countless Tarnished” beat this boss via Elden Ring‘s co-op mode.

Since KleinTsuboiOW revealed himself, there have been several pieces of fan art dedicated to theirs Elden Ring Grade. Players have made “Let Me Solo Here” drawings and fully painted models, which takes their appreciation of this player to a whole new level. In just a few days, “Let Me Solo Here” has gone from simply whispering on the Internet to common knowledge, inspiring dozens of appreciative posts from those who encountered them and those who have only just heard the stories.

The popularity of “Let Me Solo Here” is comparable to Dark souls‘Giant father, only with some opposite motives. Giant Dad saw the most talented Dark Souls players dominate all those encountered in PvP, while “Let Me Solo Here” only tries to help their other Tarnished defeats Elden Ring‘s toughest boss. Both have become iconic within the games’ respective communities, with Giant Dad being a meme and “Let Me Solo Here” portrayed as a hero. Further, like Giant Dad, there will definitely be more copycats.

Since many players are likely to dress up as “Let Me Solo Here” and leave this message, it will be difficult to say whether Elden Ring players summon the right version or a pretender. For those who manage to call on the right one, however, they will likely be carried through a battle that they have spent hours fighting with. As time goes on, fans are likely to continue to spread the word about what KleinTsuboiOW is doing, by placing them on a pedestal and further honoring the legend.

Elden Ring is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
