Once in a while during the personal time between new releases in a series like Mass Effect, fans will start to take a few classic characters and stir them up with later fads and memes. This is exactly what has happened lately with several of Shepard's companions that have become symbols, and a relatively new meme known as Flat Croc.
The Flat Croc meme itself is a part of a continuous week after week occasion online where Reddit clients will post pictures of flat articles each Friday, generally including animals that appear as though they may have been deflated. Naturally, this means that consolidating this with characters from the Mass Effect series makes for a few hilarious plans as the classic companions are flattened out.
Up until this point, the Reddit client MaxCrultak_26 has shared two of these images, one portraying a deflated rendition of Garrus Vakarian, and the second being Urdnot Wrex. Both of these characters have kept on being among the top-level of fan-favorite characters since they appeared in the absolute first Mass Effect title. This makes seeing them in this bizarre, deflated state, with a portion of their most notorious lines captioned underneath, an incredible sight for fans that have become attached to these characters.
The artwork for Wrex in particular feels surprisingly fitting for a known character to have leathery skin and rip Shepard's head off in Mass Effect in the event that the two are on inverse sides of an argument. In any case, regardless of how fitting the possibility of either of these two being rehashed as a crocodile appears, the loosened up armor and angled face certainly takes some becoming accustomed to. It's a bunch of basic pieces that manage to pull a lot of character from the companions, and heap on its very own portion using this strange meme format.
These strange lengths that fans will go to show their appreciation for a game is part of how the franchise keeps on staying in the personalities of players, even after Mass Effect 3's controversial consummation. The characters and how fans reacted to them, with the end result of proceeding to make fan art for companions from the main title in the series, has always been the greatest strength Mass Effect has had making it work. This is the reason fans have already rushed around these Flat Croc renditions of Garrus and Wrex and are anticipating seeing what the fan artist has available for any other dearest companions.
