Alright, this is just flat out awesome. Someone created a PC mod in Tekken 7 that turns DLC fighter The Walking Dead's Negan into Darth Vader. Worlds are colliding in the best possible way.

With this transformation, Negan's trusty barbwired baseball bat Lucille becomes the trademark red lightsaber of the Sith, and Vader even comes equipped with his own voice clips!

Okay, fanboy-ing aside, this mod comes from the mind of Bluewhite92 with the footage we have here uploaded by Twitter user OpenFGC. The creator notes that Vader is still a work in progress — which we can see from his face being a bit hard to see — but in action it looks great.

Vader has all of the big bat swings and strikes of Negan, and each time the lightsaber moves we hear the classic sound from the Star Wars films. The voice is also swapped out here, giving Vader lines such as "your powers are weak" and "give yourself to the dark side."

A lot of things from Negan translate over well to Darth Vader, even the Rage Art that reenacts the memorable lineup scene from the comics / show — though I guess that would actually play out differently with a blazing hot blade instead of a blunt baseball bat. Some other things don't work quite as well, though, like Vader resting the lightsaber on his shoulder with that Negan smugness.

Overall, though, this Tekken 7 mod looks like a lot of fun to play. The last time we saw Darth Vader in a Bandai Namco fighting game was as a guest character in Soul Calibur 4, so this feels like a nice little throwback.
