KATY, Texas (KRON) — Who doubts the power of the master sword of Zelda? Certainly not a Texas man who is hospitalized in serious condition after he was stabbed by a replica sword fashioned after the video game.

Eugene Thompson tells police he got into an argument with his girlfriend who then called her ex-husband for help. Thompson says he pulled out his replica master sword from the “Legend of Zelda” video game to defend himself.

“And I pulled it out and I stood in the doorway and he was just coming down that hall at me while I was yelling ‘Go away you don’t live here,’” Thompson said. “And he just walked right into the point. I don’t know if he thought it was a toy.”

The ex-husband suffered stab wounds to the chest and leg but not before he allegedly hit Thompson over the head with a flower pot.

The ex was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Thompson was treated for a head gash.

Authorities haven’t yet said if charges will be filed in the incident.

 

Only Texas, more surprised it isn't Florida tbh. I imagined this entire scenario in Skyward Sword form, laughed probably too hard at the flower pot bit.

Well you can say they made a very good replica of the sword.People should be more careful when managing those things.

"...stab wounds to the chest and legs"

 

"...just ran into the point"

 

One of these things just doesn't belong here.

It looks like he actually went to an iron shop to get it ironed and sharpened. Because that is one sharp weapon Smiley Surprised

I was about to say something like that would never happen in Texas

but realized (after reading the OP)... it happened in Texas.

 

I cant wait to hear the media puting the blame on video games, again.

Maybe we'll get a movie inspired by this called "The Texas Sword Massacre" Smiley Wink
