The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom leaked a little over a week before the game’s release, leading to caution around spoilers and some particularly giddy folk downloading it far ahead of release date at no cost. But one man won’t stand for such wanton piracy – the ol’ titan himself, Reggie Fils-Aimé, who QRT’d one “imahumanandimagamer” with his own version of vaporizing beams:


Reggie quoting the monologue from Taken to jokily threaten a random TotK pirate is honestly quintessentially him: a little hokey, extremely goofy, and yet filled with power; this is evidenced by the account in question privating and eventually deleting itself in the wave of attention that Reggie brought to it. Truly his might makes even the heavens quake in fear. Pirates better sleep with one eye open, lest they wake to the vengeful growl of “My Body is Ready” before knuckles pop. 


Tears of the Kingdom releases officially on May 12th.
