One Tiny Tina's Wonderlands player makes an attempt at recreating My Hero Academia's Red Riot--also known as Eijiro Kirishima--in the game.

p>Tiny Tina's Wonderlands has been warmly received by fans, many of whom are already tearing through fan-favorite Borderlands character Tiny Tina's Bunkers and Badasses campaign. Gamers have been especially excited about the game's character creator, which offers more customization options than ever before. One Tiny Tina's Wonderlands player used it to make My Hero Academia's Eijiro Kirishima, also known as Red Riot, in the game.

The My Hero Academia franchise focuses on a group of high school students attending a school specifically for kids who want to become professional superheroes. Eijiro Kirishima is one of them, and his positive attitude combined with an impressive and visually interesting quirk--the series' name for superpowers--have made him quite popular. In costume, he's referred to by his hero name Red Riot, which was inspired by his personal hero Crimson Riot.

Redditor NeverDeadlyy shared screenshots of their Fatemaker, whom they customized to look like Red Riot, complete with costume. My Hero Academia's heroes and villains often dress in outlandish costumes that can make recreating them in video games quite difficult. However, this recreation of Red Riot works surprisingly well, though some elements of his powers didn't quite make the leap.

In the post, NeverDeadlyy shows off a Fatemaker with spiked red hair, an open longcoat, and brightly glowing red armor worn over a black bodysuit. While the result shows less skin than Red Riot's actual costume, the rib-like armor they chose does make it seem like he's wearing the coat over nothing. This bears a certain resemblance to Red Riot's actual costume, which features detached sleeves and bright red accessories. This recreation of the hero also features a muzzle-like mask rather than the metal lines that trace the contours of Red Riot's face.

Red Riot's quirk is called Hardening, and it allows him to transform his entire body into craggy living rock. It may not be the most overpowered quirk in the series, but it does allow him to run around almost totally shirtless and still shrug off bullets, fire, and just about everything else the villains can throw at him. While NeverDeadlyy was able to capture the red and flowing theme of Red Riot's costume, capturing the side effects of his quirk in a Deadshot character--a Graveborn multiclassed into Spellshot--was a bit harder. NeverDeadlyy ended up resorting to adding scars and lines of wear on the character's face to imitate the craggy features of a transformed Red Riot.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is Available now for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
