The internet never fails to disappoint.
We’ve seen Shaggy in Jump Force.
We’ve witnessed the wrath of Thomas the Tank
Engine in Resident Evil 2.
And now the modding community has given us
a brand new treasure to cherish: Shaggy as
the main character in Resident Evil 2, complete
with voice lines and his trademark green tee.
“Talk about toasted.”
The modders behind this particular work of
magic weren’t content with letting Shaggy
breeze through Resident Evil 2.
The already terrifying Mr. X has been duplicated,
and at any given moment, there are around
ten of them chasing our favorite cartoon crime-solver
around the Raccoon City Police Department.
Is that a problem?
Not if your name is Shaggy and the world somehow
believes you should be blessed with unmitigated
Shaggy is easily able to keep every single
Mr. X at bay, thanks to his totally canonically
accurate ability to shoot fire from his hands.
At one point, nearly six or seven of the Mr.
X clones are taking a knee inside the RCPD,
almost as though they’re paying tribute.
Lord Shaggy, we are here to serve you.
In all seriousness, the internet’s infatuation
with Shaggy has been incredibly fun to watch.
You might remember the meme that kicked it
all off, you know, the one that depicted Shaggy
as some kind of all-powerful otherworldly
That laid the groundwork for Shaggy to be
proposed as a potential addition to the Mortal
Kombat 11 roster.
Ed Boon, bless his heart, played along with
the gag, giving everyone a legitimate sense
that he was considering Shaggy as a character
in the game.
But the MK 11 team ultimately broke our hearts,
inspiring one player to mod Shaggy into Jump
Force as a way to satiate his desire to see
the superpowered slacker in a fighting game.
And in case you’re wondering, “What’s up with
Shaggy’s gloves?”: it appears that the Shaggy
mod for Resident Evil 2 uses the same model
as the Jump Force mod, which means those are
actually Vegeta’s gloves dealing out pain
to all of those Mr. Xs.
Just a fun fact.
“I’m not just gonna leave you here.
What if you’re attacked, what if you need
“I’ll be fine.
Don’t worry about me.”
Along with all of the Shaggy love being handed
out like candy on Halloween, Resident Evil
2 has also been a favorite target for modders
who are looking to score some internet points.
Mr. X is certainly an imposing figure in the
game already, but fans of Resident Evil 2
have found ways to make him even scarier,
or in some cases, even more hilarious.
There are mods similar to the one mentioned
above that add even more Mr. Xs to the game,
further increasing the challenge.
There are mods that attach music to Mr. X,
causing DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” to play
anytime Mr X. is in the general vicinity.
One popular mod replaces Mr. X with Thomas
the Tank Engine, creating a brand new kind
of nightmare that you didn’t even know you
And other mods remove Mr. X from Resident
Evil 2 entirely, delivering a far less stressful
RE2 experience that players can complete without
fear or being stalked for hours on end.
Because no meme lives in a bubble, it was
only a matter of time until someone put two
and two together and decided that Shaggy deserved
a shot at battling Raccoon City’s zombie problem.
And Shaggy appears to be doing an extraordinary
job at handling all of the Mr. X clones thrown
his way, thanks to the superhuman abilities
the meme world granted him.
But you have to wonder, when does it all end?
When do people finally tire of seeing Shaggy
in video games?
Will our thirst ever be quenched?
“You know, Scoob, I’m kinda thirsty.
I wonder if there’s a liter-sized soda glob
That, we’re afraid, is a question for another
Until then, zoinks!
We’ll be here for whatever hero role Shaggy
takes up next.
And if some intrepid Resident Evil 2 modder
decides to swap out Mr. X for a ham and cheese
sandwich, well, we’ll be here for that too.
