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.

 

 


Oh wow, they even fought like they were actually playing Zelda....

That actually sucks. I feel bad for the guy. Although, I'm slightly distracted. My gamer instincts make me desire that weapon for myself.
I can here hurtful. I can be purple. I can be anything you like.

I don't believe him. I don't think he couldve done that much damage running into it. The one guy obviously used it against the ex hubby. But he had every right to do so. What kind of woman calls her ex husband to whoop her current man's **bleep**? I would have turned the sword on her next!

One of these things just doesn't belong here.


 

How very true. Unless he ran into the point repeatly...all while he was moving the sword up and down for some super defense!

Maybe these wounds need to be re-examined...

How epic, just imagine someone brakes into your house and the first thing you pick up to defend yourself is the legendary Master Sword. 

But yeah that Zelda, I mean his girls is a b for callinmg his ex-husband. Good job geeky guy.
