• Equipping the Ascendant Midas skin in Fortnite unlocks unique dialogues with NPCs like Jules and Meowscles.
  • Fans are intrigued by the connections between characters in Greek mythology, such as Marigold and Jules being revealed as Midas’ daughters.
  • While these interactions are not gameplay-related, they enhance Fortnite’s world-building and create a richer experience for players.

A Fortnite player has discovered that several NPCs have unique dialogue sequences if they interact with them while wearing the ascendant Midas skin. The interaction works quite similarly to the different NPC dialogues players get when using the various society skins in Fortnite.

Fortnite‘s Chapter 5 Season 2’s focus on Greek mythology caught many fans by surprise, but so far it has been an absolute hit. While the release of a plethora of new cosmetics has given fans plenty of new options to show off, items like Wings of Icarus have added a new dynamic to the meta. One of the most popular aspects has been Fortnite’s Thunderbolt of Zeus, which can deal a massive amount of damage if used correctly. When it comes to the skins, it seems like there is more to offer than merely being of a cosmetic nature.


LEGO Fortnite Player Discovers Wholesome Feature

One LEGO Fortnite player accidentally discovers a hidden and wholesome interaction feature while playing cooperatively with a friend.

In a new post on the Fortnite subreddit, user IHVEYOU_TTV showcases all the new NPC dialogues players can get by equipping Fortnite’s new Ascendant Midas skin. When players interact with Fortnite NPCs like Marigold, Jules, Skye, Meowscles, Brutus, and TNTina, they will be able to experience unique dialogues that are tied to their history with Midas.

All New Midas Skin NPC Interactions

  • Marigold – “I can’t believe you named a boat after me”
  • Jules – “Hi Dad. It’s… really good to see you”
  • Skye– “BOSS! You’re back, safe and sound!”
  • Meowscles – “Good to see you, boss. Give me a skritch for old time’s sake?”
  • Brutus – “You’ve been gone for a while, boss. Glad you’re back.”
  • TNTina– “You were always more gunpowder than fuse, boss.”

Fans are already brainstorming to understand the references behind the various Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 NPC dialogues. In particular, the one that has got many scratching their heads is the relationship between Marigold and Midas. A fact that some players are unaware of is that Marigold and Jules are actually Midas’ daughters in Greek mythology, which also goes on to explain Jules’ remark. However, many are quite skeptical about that, considering that Jules seems to be missing Midas’ gold touch. This has been a running debate in the community, with two of the common theories being that she is either an evolved snapshot or simply just doesn’t want to show her powers. That being said, the fact that Jules and Marigold never acknowledge each other is something that is quite strange, considering that they are theoretically sisters.

Another interaction players seem to be finding quite hilarious is the dialogue with Mewoscles. Precisely, he asks for a “skritch” where he implies saying the word scratch, in his broken English. While Fortnite interactions like these don’t affect the gameplay as such, they play a crucial role in world-building — something Fortnite has set a benchmark for in the battle royale genre.



Fortnite is a massively popular game that has several modes, the most famous of which is the online battle royale mode. In this mode, players collect items, build structures, and battle it out to be the ultimate victor.
