Sekiro’s Great Serpent Is Replaced With Thomas the Tank Engine in Disturbing PC Mod

Thomas the Tank Engine makes a chilling appearance in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice PC mod

I remember the good old days of watching Thomas the Tank Engine on TV with pure innocence. Even though I did still find him a little creepy, it seems as though those child-like, care-free memories have now been wiped clear due to Thomas’ daunting alter ego as he frequently makes a guest appearance in titles such as Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil 2 but now thanks to a PC mod that inserts Thomas in place of the Great Serpent in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, we shall never sleep again.

The ‘Thomas the Snake Engine’ mod replaces the Great Serpent with an unnerving floating Thomas who makes his way through the cliffs in a really unnatural fashion. What makes this even scarier is the fact that before you see the blue tank himself, you hear the ‘toot toot’ of his whistle, making his presence known before you see him. Then, out of nowhere, Thomas makes his big reveal showcasing that god-awful emotionless expression! The fact that Thomas the Tank Engine isn’t animated as he moves and slides around just like the Serpent really is the stuff of nightmares and in my opinion, much worse than any massive snake, that’s for sure.

If you’re into this kind of thing – although I’m unsure why anyone would be – then you can head over to Nexus mods and give it a go yourself. If you’d like a taster of what you’re getting yourself into, you can view some gameplay below, but don’t come crying to me if you have to watch some cartoons before bed tonight (preferably not Thomas the Tank Engine).

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sold over 2 million copies worldwide across PS4, Xbox One, and PC in fewer than 10 days after its release and I can only assume those figures will keep rising so if you have yet to play it, you can go ahead and pick up the title over on Amazon right now.
