An 8-part obstacle course made for a Valheim version of Ninja Warrior.

Ninja Warrior, also known as Sasuke in its native Japan, is a game show where 100 contestants try and complete a series of obstacle courses without falling into the water below. One Valheim fan, inspired by this long-running show, has created their own Ninja Warrior obstacle course in Valheim.

Created by a Reddit/YouTube user named Caeus, the initial design for this course features eight different obstacles to test a player's dexterity and their character's stamina. In their initial tests, they were able to complete the first obstacle without any food buffs, but other obstacles might be trickier. However, Caeus says that the course doesn't have any particular jump skill requirements and can be completed with only a single piece of cooked meat. This means that any newly-created character should be able to participate. Caeus told us that in order to accommodate for what Valheim does and doesn't have, they added a bonfire at the end to represent the fireworks that would normally be there, as well as a platform on the outer rim to reduce the chance of players drowning while they're swimming.

Speaking of participation, Caeus, pleased by the positive reception on their build, is more than willing to have other players on this weekend to test the course and hold an official episode of Valheim Ninja Warrior. If you'd like to give it a try, Caeus is in GMT+9 (which puts them around Tokyo time) and is free on Sunday from 8 AM to 10 PM, so DM them your time zone and availability if you'd like a shot. Depending on how many players Caeus can get on a time frame, they might stream the runs on Twitch or will make a compilation video for YouTube and share the leaderboards afterward. Caeus told us that after the first test run, they'll likely build another version on land and possibly a deadlier course.

Valheim is available for purchase on Steam.
