Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ character creator is a series first for Borderlands, and one gamer shows just how in-depth it is with their Shrek design.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands shakes things up quite a bit through a few of its major changes. However, while the Overworld map and spells are proving to be popular additions to the Borderlands formula, many Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands fans are enamored with the looter shooter’s character creator.
With the spin-off’s similarities to Dungeons and Dragons being a big part of its appeal, as it is plenty of fun to experience a campaign hand-crafted by Tiny Tina, a character creator is essential. Fortunately, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands features just that, as the game allows players to build their character from the ground up. Not only can they choose their protagonist’s voice and backstories, determining how they act and what areas they are strong in, but every detail of their face can be customized.
Considering that gamers have full control over the size and placement of facial features like eyes and noses, it is not too surprising that many are using Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands‘character creator to make intentionally silly designs. However, ugly and over-the-top characters are not the only thing being made by fans. Much like in other games that boast this feature, some players are going out of their way to create characters from pop culture, ranging from figures seen in other games to movie and TV icons. One such player named BlueLobster47 has made Shrek in-game.
With Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands being set in a fantasy world, players are not limited to human facial features and skin tones. Instead, a variety of colors, scars, and makeup are available to use when building a character. BlueLobster47 was quick to realize that Shrek could be built in-game due to the presence of green skin, though they made sure to get other aspects of the ogre right as well. His head size is massive and his lower face is wide, for instance, with some bushy eyebrows and big irises present as well. The fan also keeps Shrek’s outfit brown to mimic his signature attire.
While some liberties did need to be taken, as the character’s iconic ear shape was not an option, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands‘community has responded well to the Redditor’s attempt. Alongside hundreds of upvotes, several comments referenced Shrek, with a few gamers quoting the song “All-Star.” While the background is not perfectly accurate to Shrek’s swamp, it does resemble some scenery in the fairy tale land Shrek explored with Fiona in the original film. As such, Shrek seems to fit perfectly inside the game.
Funnily enough, players have used Elden Ring‘s character to create human Shrek, showing that the ogre is still incredibly popular on the internet. For those that want to play as Shrek in a video game, it seems like there are a few options available.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
