* {{Biseinen}}: Leon definitely qualifies in his younger years with that fabulous [[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} Jack Dawson-esque]] 'do of his. While he's no longer as effeminate by the time of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' (''just look at his muscles''), he's still much more of a pretty-boy than any of the other male protagonists, particularly with the steadily-increasing length of his hair. Other characters seem to notice, as one of the Policia in the beginning of 4 asks if he "forgot his makeup", and Leon himself lampshades it in ''Damnation'' when he's nearly stabbed in the face by a pair of pruning shears and retorts with "Do I look like I need a pruning"?

* MaleGaze: The camera likes to focus on [[http://imgur.com/2TSlWUQ Claire's plump derriere]] sometimes, like in one scene in Darkside Chronicles, where the camera views Claire from behind, and moves down a bit to emphasize and show her gorgeous backside. It's revealed to be from Steve's POV, as he was definitely checking her out.

* TagalongKidTagalongKid: In ''Resident Evil 2'', she serves as this to Claire... once she stops trying to run away from her, at least.


Added DiffLines:

* AdmiringTheAbomination: He was utterly ''fascinated'' with the mutagenic virus he created after recovering its base-form from Lisa Trevor after attempting to use the Nemesis-Alpha macroparasite on her. This culminated in a crossover with BlasphemousBoast: according to [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary material]], the "G" in G-Virus stands for ''God-Virus''. To emphasize the point, the antigens he created to the G-Virus are actively referred to in-game as the Devil Vaccine.

* ImpossibleItemDrop: ''Resident Evil 2'' has Mr. X drop ammo on his person should you defeat him in an encounter. It is never explained why the mutant carries bullets.
* MightyGlacier: Moves at a steady walk, but hits like a mack truck. This is often exacerbated by the fact he's usually fought in narrow corridors with no room to manuever around him. He turns into an outright LightningBruiser after he goes OneWingedAngel.
* OneWingedAngel: At the end.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The player's efforts to fight him only end up destroying his coat, allowing him to assume his Super Tyrant form.
* OneWingedAngel: At the end.end of the game, thanks to the damage to his PowerLimiter, he ends up mutating into a mode commonly nicknamed "The Super Tyrant". It causes him to grow even bigger, develop scale-like armor across his torso, his hands expand into [[WolverineClaws massive, blade-fingered appendages]] and he gets a ''huge'' speed upgrade.

A particularly deadly mutant created after the T-Virus infected Raccoon City. Although initially
it has only appeared officially in non-canon minigames ''[=RE2=]'', it went on to appear in ''2'' the post-[=RE3=] segments of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles'' and ''Darkside Chronicles''.in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''.



* AnimateInanimateObject: A living block of tofu.
* DummiedOut: Since ''3'' was made using ''2'''s engine, it's also in that game as well and can be hacked onto the player character model.
* GratuitousJapanese: Mutters "farewell" in Japanese when it is killed.
* JokeCharacter: Does this really need explaining? Even its ending in "The Mercenaries" for [=RE2=] emphasizes it, when your reward for beating the game is an ending in which [[spoiler: HUNK eats the tofu for his lunch.]]
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Curses in the kansai dialect when it's attacked.
* KnifeNut: Its sole weapon is a knife.
* NiceHat: Its beret.
* ShowsDamage: As Tofu is attacked, it gradually turns from white to a deep red. Similarly, it turns purple when poisoned.
* SillinessSwitch: It's a freaking walking block of tofu, wearing a beret, that mutters in Japanese and wields a knife. In the middle of a zombie-infested SurvivalHorror game.

** This could have been worse: the original plan was for the player's attention to be caught by a ''severed head being dropped onto the floor'' before they looked up at the ceiling. This was cancelled for being too graphic.

* GenreSavvy: His expertise in ''Degeneration'' can basically be summed up as, "I've been in these kinds of games before, I know what I'm talking about." It's much the same situation in ''Damnation.'' As of [=RE6=], this single fact has landed him in a pretty high government position, along with Hunnigan.

* ChivalrousPervert: Some of his dialogue towards Claire in her scenario comes across as very sleazy, but he is a genuine nice guy trying to help out as many civilians as he can.
