Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been hailed as a difficult game befitting the reputation of developer From Software, but that serious tone and difficulty hasn't prevented the modding community from having some whimsical fun with the action-adventure title. Recently, a modder known as Katalash swapped Sekiro's great serpent with Thomas the Tank Engine, and now the same modder has seen fit to add Dreamwork Animations' Shrek to the game.
Katalash, working with another modder who goes by Drop0ff, created this mod for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice which replaces the Chained Ogre boss with the green Ogre with layers. Considering Shrek's reoccurring role in Internet memes, the only thing surprising about this mod is that it wasn't added sooner, but make no mistake, this is not the same Shrek that many have come to love.
Combining Shrek's graphics with the movements and actions of the Chained Ogre has created a wonderful yet terrifying version of the character, filled with good old fashioned nightmare fuel. Whether it is the exaggerated and elongated limbs, being lifted into the air by Shrek, watching him half-crawl across the ground, or any other unorthodox movement, fans of Sekiro will want to end the fight quickly. Luckily, defeating Shrek is no different than beating the Chained Ogre in Sekiro.
It's worth mentioning that is a simple character model change-up, but that hasn't stopped others from adding some music to best fit the encounter with Shrek the Chained Ogre. Perhaps the most fitting is Smash Mouth's "All Star" that has practically become synonymous with the Shrek franchise, and perhaps the modders will see fit to add more nuance to this Sekiro mod in the future.

Despite the difficulty of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, it has proven to be an incredibly popular game, but even this Shrek mod may not be the heights of the fervor associated with it. A YouTuber has recently managed to beat Sekiro using DK Bongos, which is an impressive feat to say the least.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
