One observant Elden Ring player finds a real-life version of Iron Fist Alexander, the famous giant pot character players can encounter.

p>FromSoftware's open world Soulsborne title Elden Ring has taken the world by storm, and a key part of that has been the game's dark and often surreal world. Its roster of twisted knights, mutated demigods, and hat-wearing tortoises seem to have captured the imaginations of gamers everywhere. One Elden Ring fan has even found a real-life version of the game's giant pot character.

Iron Fist Alexander is an NPC in Elden Ring that has been affectionately nicknamed Pot Boy by the game's fan community. He earned his name because of his odd character design, which resembles a large cauldron with arms and legs. Although fans can fight him if they want to, he is a generally friendly character who requests help from the player and will reward them if assisted.

Redditor kllgor shared a photograph of a large pot partly buried in what seems to be a grassy field. The accompanying text announced that they found "him," with the him in question being Alexander. Alexander is typically encountered stuck in various places around Elden Ring's game world. Between the pot's striking resemblance to the Elden Ring character and the similar situation it was found in, it's easy to make the connection.

The pot is a deep red color and features several metal rings attached around its mouth. Additionally, there seem to be a number of straps wrapped around the neck of the pot and running down its sides. The result looks rather medieval, which enhances its resemblance to something out of Elden Ring's dark fantasy world. However, it's hard to tell exactly what the pot looks like because it's buried in the earth at a strong angle, leaving much of its right side and its entire bottom underground. Glancing at the photo leaves it unclear how the pot managed to get so deep in the earth.

When players encounter Alexander in the game, he will prompt them to help him get unstuck. Since Elden Ring is an action game, this help takes the form of players giving him a good smack to help him get moving again. Apparently, some encounters with the character require a bit more help to get Alexander out of the ground - specifically, gamers need to add some oil before whacking him in order to get him loose. Since this pot appears to be made of a more breakable substance than Alexander, it might be more difficult to extract it in one piece.

Elden Ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
