KATY, Texas, March 3 (UPI) -- Two men in Katy, Texas, were hospitalized over the weekend after getting in a fight using a Zelda replica sword and flower pot as their weapons of choice.

The fight started when Eugene Thompson was at home with his girlfriend. The girlfriend's estranged husband knocked on the door, and the girlfriend let him inside the house. Thompson told the estranged husband to leave and when he didn't, Thompson walked back to his room to retrieve his master sword replica from the Legend of Zelda Nintendo game. The estranged husband reportedly then walked straight into the point of the sword.

"He was coming down the hallway at me while I was yelling, ‘Go away, you don’t live here’ and he just walked right into the point of the sword, I don’t know if he thought it was a toy,” said Thompson.

Thompson didn't get away unscathed, as he too was injured when he was hit over the head with a flower pot that busted his head open. The two men are in stable condition.
