Niche Mods Spotlight – THUG Pro


If you’ve ever seen a really weird clip of Solaire skating in Dark Souls 1‘s firelink shrine, or Goku absolutely shredding it in Kingdom Hearts‘ Traverse Town, then you most likely stumbled upon the THUG Pro mod.

Every once in a while a clip of this mod being played goes viral, but people never know where it’s from. One of the more recent ones happened on TikTok, featuring Lain from the Serial Experiments Lain anime.

THUG Pro is a mod for Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, which introduces custom soundtracks, levels, and player characters, as well as stages from all Tony Hawk games with support for online multiplayer.

The project first released on August 10th, 2013 and is still in development.
