    Jake Muller
Voiced by: Troy Baker

"I want 200,000 up-front, another 200 when this is over... oh, and B.O.W.s? Those are extra."

The mysterious third protagonist of Resident Evil 6. Coming from a poverty-stricken Edonian family, Jake became a mercenary early on in order to afford medical treatment for his chronically ill mother, who died shortly thereafter. Left alone in the world, he turned his only concern into money. His life comes to a turning point when he meets Sherry Birkin, who claims he's the world's best hope of salvation — and learns his father, who left his pregnant mother, was no other than Albert Wesker.

  • Adopt the Dog: Slowly starts to care, until he's genuinely trying to help Sherry save the world instead of just doing it for the money.
  • Action Genre Hero Guy: Has the appearance of one.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Much like his father, Jake posses superhuman abilities though to a smaller degree to that of his father. However, Wesker only acquires this abilities after being injected with a unique virus during the Mansion Incident in 1998. This leaves the question as to when and how Jake acquire his powers as the only time Jake is infected with any kind of virus is with the C-Virus, which is a completely different virus from the one his father received.
  • Anti-Antichrist: He's the final legacy of what was the series Big Bad for a while. His response to that can be summed up as "screw that."
  • Anti-Hero: A Nominal Hero, he's much more concerned about how much money he could earn with his blood rather than saving the world, but by the end of the game, he graduates to a Knight in Sour Armour, becoming a much more heroic and self-sacrificing character.
  • Badass Biker: Chapter 4 of his campaign involves a chase sequence on motorcycle, with Jake pulling off some impressive tricks to escape his pursuers.
  • Badass in Distress: He gets captured twice. He mostly rescues himself the first time, though it took him six months, but the second time he only managed it with outside help.
  • Blood Knight: At first, it seems that Jake's jokes, taunts, and boasting might just be bravado on his part. But it eventually becomes clear that he means what he says, and he really is having fun fighting zombie hordes. He refers to the Recurring Boss Ustanak as his personal punching bag without irony, after about the fourth time that it came within a hairs-breath of killing him and Sherry. When they team up with Leon and Helena to battle the Ustanak in Lanshiang, Jake freely admits that he lives for stuff like this, causing Helena to question his sanity.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Jake never has a good opinion on his father though he always thought he was simply a deadbeat who abandoned him and his mother. When he discovers Wesker is actually what kind of a man Wesker is, Jake's hatred for him increases and spends the remaining of his campaign speaking ill of him.
  • Casual Danger Dialog: He calmly talks about re-negotiating his price for his job while beating a J'avo senseless.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: His C-virus antibodies, which Carla Radames uses to make the C-virus more potent.
  • Child Soldier: Began his work as a mercenary when he was still a young teenager to support his mother.
  • Comically Small Demand: His scenario's ending has him sending a text message to Sherry that he's dropped his price for his blood to 50 dollars. He goes even further in the secret ending, where he's seen taking an apple as payment from a kid for getting rid of some B.O.W.s. It's a pre-arranged price, too.
  • Cool Shades: His alternate outfit in The Mercenaries. Canonically, he wears them only once in the game.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Being one of only two survivors when his first mercenary group was sold out by their leader, a man he'd grown to admire and even regard as a father. To make matters worse, it happened around the time his mother died. He's described as having never trusted anyone after that.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Some of the things he’s done as a mercenary weigh pretty heavily on his conscience, causing him to speculate bitterly about what traits he might have inherited from his newly-discovered father.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Potentially one of the snarkiest characters of the series.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In one of the last boss fights against Ustanak, Jake finally has enough of running from it, and goes mano a mano with him. And assuming you don't screw up too many commands, manages to last long enough to survive the encounter and beats the shit out of that bastard.
  • Distressed Dude: Despite his badassery and powers, he is captured twice during the game by Carla and her Neo-Umbrella.
  • Dull Surprise: To the extent that he simply takes everyone else in his platoon turning into J'avo out to get him in stride.
  • Even Anti-Heroes Love Their Mamas: One of his main motivations for becoming a mercenary was to provide for his mother.
  • Everyone Has Standards: This quote sums it up pretty good:
    "Dying for money's one thing — that's my choice. But dying for no good reason? Doesn't sit right with me."
  • Extreme Mêlée Revenge: During his final boss, when he goes mano a mano with the Ustanak, the end result is him punching the creature with incredible force and speed while screaming profanities at it, and finally ending with a Megaton Punch that knocks it into the lava.
  • Fiery Redhead: He has the classic Blood Knight variation on the trope, eager to fight and quick to react with violence. It's hard to tell with his hair buzzed so short, but his character designs show that he's a redhead.
  • Freudian Excuse: His fixation on money is more understandable once you learn that he was raised in poverty by a chronically ill mother, with no father in the picture, and became a mercenary at no more than fifteen to try and earn the money to treat her illness, only for her to die of it soon after. Then when he was seventeen, one of his trainers became a father-figure to him only to sell out the whole unit for money, getting all but two of them killed.
  • Generation Xerox: Rather ironically Jake ends up developing a close personal friendship with Sherry Burkin in RE6 that mirrors the relationship his father Wesker had with Sherry's father William. Fortunately for everybody they are far better people then their fathers were.
  • Genius Bruiser: Downplayed since he's not that educated and drops more curses than big words, but he's implied to pick up skills extraordinarily quickly; aside from learning combat skills well enough to kill multiple experienced attackers after relatively little experience when he was just a teenager, he speaks and writes flawless English despite it probably being his second language and learns how to both speak and read fluent Chinese — a tone language with vastly different grammar from English and most European languages — from a few months of listening to his captors.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: While his gameplay is similar to the other characters, his melee is faster, stronger, and can combo, and he has powerful counters. Throw in limited ammo and do the math.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Sports a long, straight one down the cheek.
  • Have We Met?: Said by Chris in the Captivate trailer. Not surprising, considering Jake's parentage and Chris's antagonistic relationship with Albert Wesker.
  • Healthcare Motivation: He originally became a mercenary to earn the money needed for treating his mother's illness. Unfortunately, she died soon afterwards.
  • Heroic Bastard: His father and mother never married, so that's a given. Despite this hardship, he establishes himself as a firmly heroic, if a bad jaded, person as his story progresses.
  • Hidden Depths: Whoever expected a tough-as-nails merc like him to know how to play Chopin on the piano?
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: He's about a good foot taller than Sherry, despite being about several years younger than her.
  • I Am Not My Father: Deciding this is an important turning point for him.
    Jake:: "You know what? I'm not my father. And I'm gonna make damn sure it stays that way."
  • The Immune: Immune to the C-Virus, and also his blood is its cure. Unfortunately, Neo Umbrella wants his blood so they can make the C-Virus stronger.
  • In the Blood: He questions if "crazy doesn't run in the family" after finding out his parentage, but he ultimately has little in common with Albert Wesker.
  • Indy Ploy: He decides to stop running and destroy an attack chopper that is hounding both them and Chris, but then admits that he's making it up as he goes along and has no idea how to do so.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his snarky behavior, Jake does seem to care for Sherry over time. He also changes his price from 50 million to 50 dollars. Not to mention the whole reason he became a mercenary was to support his mother.
  • Lamarck Was Right: Despite the fact that they've never met, some of the attacks he uses resemble those used by his father, such as the way he drops one shoulder and rushes an enemy. Possibly partly justified by them having the same superhuman strength and agility.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Although not to the same extent as Wesker, Jake is incredibly strong and agile despite being only 20 years old thanks to his genetics. He is the only playable character who has hand-to-hand melee instead of a knife. His melee is also faster, stronger, has powerful counters, and is the only one that can combo. He is also strong and fast enough to dodge and trade blows with 20 ft-tall fellow Lightning Bruiser Ustanak.
  • Living MacGuffin: Neo Umbrella wants him so that they can experiment on his blood to make their C-Virus more lethal. The US government also wants him and his blood so that they can use his antibodies to develop a vaccine for the C-Virus.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He is Albert Wesker's illegitimate son though he only discovers this from Carla three years after Wesker is dead.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Complete with a long Shirtless Scene.
  • The Nicknamer:
    • He calls Sherry "super girl".
    • Like Wesker in Chris's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, he calls the BSAA "boy scouts".
  • Nom de Mom: He doesn't share his last name with Albert Wesker, which is used to contribute to The Reveal.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Jake has what is definitely an American accent, but he was born and raised in Eastern Europe. He did learn to speak fluent Cantonese just by listening to his captors.
  • Not So Different: To his father, Wesker, despite his I Am Not My Father. Downplayed, as this ultimately doesn't apply to personality. Both have fighting styles which resemble each other despite having never met each other. And of course, Jake later adopts Cool Shades just as dark as his father's.
  • Not Worth Killing: After escaping Ustanak in chapter 1 the first time, Jake tells Sherry on how he encountered a man who pulled a knife at him rather than shoot him, as he figured Jake wouldn't be worth killing with a bullet.
  • Only in It for the Money: One of his dominant character traits, and the trait focused on by the reveal trailer, is his fixation on money. This is explained in his story, as Jake took up a job of being a merc to provide for his mom since Wesker abandoned the family.
    "Well, the world can have [my blood], as long as someone ponies up the dough."
  • Parental Abandonment: Wesker abandoned an Eastern European woman before he was born. This may factor into how Jake is nothing like Mr. Wesker at all.
  • Polyglot: He speaks fluent, accentless English, learns how to speak and read Chinese after listening to Neo-Umbrella goons speak it, and, judging by his usage of "Grazie," has at least some knowledge of Italian.
  • Pretty Boy: Of the "rugged, bad boy" type.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: His backstory. His mother was chronically ill with something curable, but they barely had the money for basic expenses, never mind treatment. To get the needed money, he became a mercenary, but his mother died soon after, leaving him with money but no mother.
  • Ship Tease: Lots of it with Sherry.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Has the tendency to say curse words like "Get our own helicopter, asshole!"
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Chris seems to recognize something of Wesker in him in their first meeting, even asking if they've met before, and later tells him that he can see his father in him.
  • Suplex Finisher: One of his finishing melee moves.
  • Tired of Running: The whole reason why he decides to take the Ustanak head on during the final boss fight.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: At 6'3".
  • Trailers Always Spoil: The game's trailers reveal from the beginning that he's Wesker's son, which the game itself treats as The Reveal.
  • Troubled, but Cute: His poverty-stricken childhood and the bad experiences he's had as a mercenary have left him with some serious issues, even though he's barely out of his teens, but he's still a very attractive guy.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Sherry.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Spends a chapter of the game in nothing more than hospital pants.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Spinning DDT on stunned enemy = Your Head Asplode. He can even perform a freaking suplex on Ustanak.
  • You Killed My Father: When Chris confesses that he was the one who murdered Jake's father, Jake flips out, holds him at gunpoint, and comes within a hair's breadth of shooting him in the face right then and there, but averts his aim at the last second.
  • Younger Than They Look: Jake is only 20 years old, despite appearances.

    Helena Harper
Voiced by: Laura Bailey

Leon's companion in 6. She is a government agent who holds herself responsible for the virus outbreak in Tall Oaks.

  • Action Girl: She's the physically strongest of the three female characters and can keep up with everyone else.
  • Alliterative Name: Helena Harper.
  • The Atoner: She is genuinely heroic and was allowed to stay in the Secret Service, as her superiors believed it was unfair to arrest her for Simmons' wrongdoings.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: As expected of a highly-skilled Secret Service agent. She changes into more casual clothing for the trip to China.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her China outfit includes a tank top that exposes about an inch of her stomach, but not quite enough to reveal her belly button.
  • The Big Girl: Of the four playable women in 6, Helena is physically the strongest as noted in Muscles Are Meaningful, and she is the only who uses the Hydra, a triple-barrel shotgun.
  • Big Sister Instinct: When she found out Deborah's boyfriend was abusive, she shot him in the leg. Simmons later used her sister's life to force her to distract the President's security detail, and she spends the first part of the game trying to save her sister and the rest trying to avenge her.
  • Boobs of Steel: Barring, maybe Rachel, she's the bustiest playable player from the series.
  • Cassandra Truth: After distracting the President's security detail as part of Simmons' plan, Helena had a crisis of conscience and attempted to convince them to go back before Simmons made his move, but due to her past transgressions under the CIA, they all ignored her. Leon was the only one willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, and by then, it was too late.
  • Cowboy Cop: While a good person at heart, Helena had become rather infamous in the CIA for repeated cases of misconduct. She once assaulted a suspect in a serial murder case for making crass comments in front of a victim's family. She also shot her sister's ex-boyfriend when he attacked her for breaking up with him. The CIA actually planned on firing her but she instead got transferred to the Secret Service.
  • Determinator: Throughout her campaign with Leon, she is more than determined to put a bullet in Simmons' head. And gets the chance to.
  • Expy:
  • Fair Cop: Especially her alternate costume in Mercenary Mode.
  • "Get out of Jail Free" Card: While she was forced into it and only did so to protect her sister, Helena still aided Simmons in killing the President and the C-Virus outbreak in Tall Oaks. Nonetheless, at the end of the game, her superiors decide it unjust to hold her accountable and give her a clean slate.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She is very sympathetic and moralistic (and has strong morals at that), but used excessive force against a murder suspect who threatened the family of a victim.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: The files portray Helena as having serious anger issues, and she spends most of the game furiously pissed off. Granted, she has every right to be, but she chills out near the end of the game.
  • I Have Your Sister: Simmons uses her sister's life as leverage to force Helena to call in a fake threat to distract President Benford's security detail, which allows Simmons to infect him.
  • It's All My Fault: Her word for word reaction after Leon shoots the zombified president.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her sympathetic tendencies and strong morals, her extremely rash behavior and inclination to violence has earned her quite the reputation, as her fellow agents had labeled her as "the CIA's problem child".
  • Knight Templar Big Sister: When she discovered that Deborah's boyfriend was abusive, she actually shot him.
  • Male Gaze: Her tight pants are a delight to some players.
  • Master of the Mixed Message: Despite one or two scenes that could be construed as romantic with Leon early in the game, she later seems to pretty solidly approve of his feelings for Ada, to the point that she saves Ada's compact and gives it to him.
  • Moving the Goalposts: Does a lot of this in the first two chapters. She starts by telling Leon that she can get him some important information at Tall Oaks Cathedral. Upon arriving, she stays silent on that front until they open and move into the cathedral basement and begin working their way through the laboratory. She then continues to postpone telling him what's going on, either by being distracted or just asking him to wait. Upon finding her sister Deborah, Leon angrily demands to know what is going on, and Helena attempts this again by just asking for his help in getting Deborah out and to safety. Only after they're forced to kill Deborah does Helena finally come clean. Granted, this can all be excused by the fact that time is of the essence, but it's noticeable regardless.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Helena is noticeably more muscular than other women in the franchise, especially her arms. This translates directly into gameplay, where she not only performs feats requiring great physical strength, such as carrying her sister on her back over a long distance and climbing up several stories of elevator cables, but also in her melee attacks, which consist almost entirely of throws and slams.
  • Nerves of Steel: Just as much as Leon, but arguably more noticeable due to her not actually having any experience with zombies. She planted a bullet into Simmons' skull after a large piece of debris he flung at her nearly struck her in the head and didn't even flinch.
  • Overprotective Big Sister: She got hurriedly transferred to the Secret Service after she shot her sister's abusive boyfriend in the leg.
  • Police Brutality: Given her temper and violent tendencies.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: A bizarre example. Helena's superiors transferred her to the President's Secret Service detail after she shot Deborah's boyfriend.
  • Revenge: Her motivation for the rest of the game after mercy killing Deborah was to go after Simmons.
  • Shipper on Deck: She repeatedly presses Leon about his relationship with Ada, getting very personal with him. After the other woman leaves after their battle with Simmons, Helena encourages Leon to leave her behind and pursue Ada.
  • Ship Tease: She and Leon have moments together and it seems she has a thing for him.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: Helena's personal weapon aside from her Picador is a modified version of the tri-barreled Hydra shotgun, which uses custom (and rare) 10-gauge shells instead of the more common type.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: It's been said that while Helena was a serious government agent, her sister Deborah was a carefree party girl.
  • Staking the Loved One: She dropped the mutated Deborah and let her fall into the bottomless pit below out of mercy.
  • Stripperiffic: Literally. Helena's alternate outfit in the Mercenaries mode doesn't actually show that much skin, but it looks like she's about to break into a strip routine.
  • Tranquil Fury: After Deborah has to be subjected to a Mercy Kill, Helena is livid, to say the least with Simmons. She rarely leaves this state after she plunges into it, and it culminates in her putting a bullet between Simmons' eyes with a completely flat demeanour outside a look of out-and-out hatred.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Helena can bust out an elbow drop, a tilt-a-whirl slam, and a Dropkick.

    Piers Nivans
Voiced by: Christopher Emerson

A young BSAA operative serving under the North American branch's Special Operations Unit Alpha Team, and Chris's partner in RE6.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses his right arm in the final battle. A C-virus injection gives him a new one.
  • Badass Normal: Piers is a talented soldier, but still an ordinary human fighting against virus-enhanced weapons.
    • Empowered Badass Normal: He willingly infects himself with the C-Virus to save Chris, causing him to regrow his arm with the ability to shoot electricity. As such, he presents a chance for the player to experience playing a BOW in the canon campaign.
  • Badass Driver: He claims to be the best driver of the BSAA — and you even get to drive a military jeep while playing as him at one point of the campaign. His alternate outfit in The Mercenaries references this, being a racer jumpsuit.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: The apparent reason he opts for the Heroic Sacrifice. He's struggling to maintain his sense of self throughout the final boss battle, and realizes that no matter how hard he's trying, the infection is slowly spreading beyond his arm.
  • Broken Pedestal: He always dreamed about joining the army like the other men in his family, but when he did and saw his superiors treating their soldiers as expendable pawns... things changed when Chris recruited him into the BSAA. Subverted in his relation to Chris, as he never loses faith in him and helps him go back to what he was.
  • Cast from Hit Points: His lightning attacks with the mutated arm. Good thing his HP is slowly but always recovering when infected.
  • Determinator: A fiercely determined soldier, never giving up and going so far as to tear his own injured arm off and use the C-Virus on himself to save Chris.
  • Doesn't Trust Those Guys: He doesn't particular trust mercenaries and if he had his way, Jake would have been arrested in his first encounter with the BSAA.
  • Dying as Yourself: He chooses to remain behind and die with Neo-Umbrella's underwater facility because he knows that he will eventually lose himself to the infection.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared as a focus character in Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire. His first name was mistakenly translated there as "Beards," which caused a lot of amused reactions from Western fans.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted — he can easily be interpreted as the Good Counterpart of Jack Krauser from Resident Evil 4. Both men are accomplished soldiers and firm allies to a Resident Evil main character (Leon for Krauser and Chris for Piers) who find themselves mutated by viruses that cause both to acquire a Right Hand of Doom, but while Krauser goes crazy and tries to kill his former partner, Piers maintains his sanity to the end and commits a Heroic Sacrifice for Chris's sake.
  • First-Name Basis: Is literally the only member of Chris's squad to address him by name, though he still mostly sticks to just calling him "Captain".
  • Friendly Sniper: Piers is the sharp-shooter of his team, and a relatively kind man.
  • Healing Factor: Once he injects himself with the C-Virus, he develops one in gameplay, with Regenerating Health. This is justified by the fact that his Shock and Awe Red Right Hand is Cast from Hit Points, meaning that he needs to have something to use as ammunition.
  • The Hero Dies: Piers is noticeable for being the first protagonist in a Resident Evil game to die, sacrificing his life to push Chris back up to the surface before the base collapses and he loses his humanity.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He uses the C-Virus on himself, using the last of his strength to save Chris and staying behind so that he'll die before the infection takes over his mind.
  • Hunk: Alongside staple RE hunk Chris Redfield, of course.
  • Informed Ability: According to supplementary material, he's known as "the man who never misses a target". Sadly, he doesn't qualify for Red Baron since no one calls him this in-game, and while he's shown to be a very good sniper, he doesn't make any shots that qualify him for having Improbable Aiming Skills, leaving him stuck with this.
  • The Lancer: Goes from Chris's second-in-command to Chris's conscience. Revelations 2 reveals that Claire entrusted him to look after her brother.
  • Last Breath Bullet: With the last of his life and humanity, Piers finishes off Haos before it can kill Chris.
  • Lightning Gun: His C-Virus Red Right Hand doubles as an organic one.
  • Meaningful Name: Piers is a name of Greek origin, meaning "rock" — fitting, since he is Chris's rock.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Inverted Trope. Chris is grooming Piers to take command in the future, and sees him as the future of the BSAA. Instead, Piers drags Chris out of his 10-Minute Retirement and sacrifices himself to save his mentor.
  • Nice Guy: According to the files, he always has "time to offer a kind word to his fellow soldiers".
  • Number Two: He acts as Chris's right-hand man whenever he's leading a BSAA team.
  • One-Winged Angel: A Heroic example, spending the final battle in a transformed state. Afterwards, he commits suicide to ensure he won't lose his humanity.
  • Passing the Torch: Chris intends to have Piers as his successor, leaving him in charge of the North American BSAA team. The ending of the game ensures that this will never happen.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Chris' Red. He's noticeably calmer, more optimistic and more level-headed than Chris, and often acts as the voice of reason whenever his Captain's judgment becomes clouded by distress.
  • The Reliable One: To Chris, as his second in command. This quality was what caused Chris to begin grooming Piers to become his successor in the BSAA. Revelations 2 reveals that this reliability has earned him Claire's trust, as she's willing to let him handle problems with Chris instead of getting directly involved.
  • Right Hand of Doom: After injecting himself with the C-Virus, he grows a monstrous limb that can shoot electricity.
  • Roundhouse Kick: He can execute one as one of his melee attacks in The Mercenaries.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: He wears a shemagh, a type of Middle-eastern scarf popular among soldiers serving in that region.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Is given full characterization in both The Marhawa Desire and 6, only to pull a Heroic Sacrifice by the end of the game.
  • Shock and Awe: Only when infected, though. And it can be charged.
  • Shoryuken: His coup de grâce is a powerful uppercut.
  • Sniper Rifle: His Signature Weapon is the Anti-Materiel Rifle, a sniper rifle built for destroying military equipment rather than personnel.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: Granted, the person he's speaking about really deserved it.
    Piers: Wesker deserved what he got!
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: At 5'10".
  • Tragic Monster: A heroic example. Especially since he remains an ally even after his transformation.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gives one of these to Chris about his vendetta, kamikaze-like rampages, and heavy drinking and letting all of that overwhelm his sense of justice.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Especially when compared to Chris. His VA comments that still being very young plays a part in his idealism.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: He's a reasonably accomplished hand-to-hand fighter, pulling off headlocks, uppercuts and even back-breaking strikes as a playable character in The Mercenaries.

    Deborah Harper
Voiced by: Kate Higgins

Helena's little sister, who was kidnapped by Simmons and used as a C-Virus test subject. Avenging her is Helena's driving motivation throughout the game.

  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Upon her mutation.
  • Disney Villain Death: After the battle, Helena drops her to her death.
  • Distressed Damsel: She was help captive by Simmons in order to blackmail Helena into helping him in the attack on Tall Oaks.
  • Doomed Hurt Guy: Helena tries very hard to rescue her, but it ultimately comes to nothing, as she succumbs to the C-Virus and turns into a monster.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish to Helena's Responsible.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: She's entirely naked in her boss form.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Stated in the art book to be deliberately designed as one of these in her C-Virus form; the very first attack she pulls off in the first stage of her fight is to straddle the player character and then caress her body as her new limbs impale them.
  • Painful Transformation: Her final moments before mutating are spent screaming in agony before bursting into flame.
  • Spider Limbs: Her main method of attack.
  • Tragic Monster: After mutating.

    Derek Clifford Simmons
Voiced by: David Lodge

The US National Security Advisor, and an expert on bio-terrorism.

  • Abusive Parents: He becomes this to Sherry, who he adopted after the end of Resident Evil 2. He has her locked up in his home for eleven years so his private research team can study G-Virus in her blood.
  • Ancient Conspiracy: He is the leader of an organization known as The Family that was founded centuries ago, at least before the American Revolutionary War.
  • Arc Villain: Of Leon's campaign.
  • Asshole Victim: His death is well deserved.
  • Ax-Crazy: When he is infected with the C-Virus, his behavior spirals down to fluctuating between his Yandere feelings for Ada and Unstoppable Rage.
  • Beard of Evil: A well-groomed one.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He thinks he's in control of everything, yet his focus is limited — Carla is the one who founded Neo-Umbrella and leads it, all of the J'avo belong to her, and she's even able to infect Simmons with a powerful dose of C-Virus. Out-Gambitted indeed.
  • Disney Villain Death: Which leads to him getting Impaled with Extreme Prejudice.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Another of his boss forms resembles a T-Rex.
  • Evil Chancellor/The Mole: He's the President's aide, and current leader of "the Family".
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: And he never will. He finds Sherry's "overly-kind and ultimately naive, charitable nature" disgusting.
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: Carla has him infected with this in mind, taunting him over the phone that, with his infection, he's becoming the monster he always was. And boy howdy, does he end up weird, even by B.O.W. standards!
  • Final Boss: For Leon and Ada in their respective campaigns.
  • Flies = Evil: His final boss form.
  • Cerebus Retcon: He's the reason Raccoon City was nuked off the map. This one action is why Ada refuses to associate with him. Originally, it was the U.S. President who issued the contingency plan to sterilize Raccoon City. The President did take the fall for it, as Degeneration showed him being forced to resign from office from the public backlash.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Attempts one on Leon and Helena, to little avail:
    Simmons: "You... have no idea... what would happen if I die!!
    Leon: "The world will be a better place!"
  • Hate Sink: From the moment he is introduced, Simmons already shows how dispacble he is.
  • The Heavy: Simmons' obsession with Ada prompted him to have Carla develop the C-Virus. He also turned Carla into an Ada doppelganger against her will, beginning her Start of Darkness. But while his actions pushed the events of the plot into motion, he is more of a lesser villain compared to Carla, the mastermind behind Neo-Umbrella and the attempt at destroying the world.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Simmons is this for as long as his determination allows him to keep himself together after he's been injected with the C-Virus. He can even bring himself back to his human form on occasion.
  • Humiliation Conga: His entire Rasputinian Death is very long, undignified, humiliating, and he deserves every second of it.
  • Implacable Man: Becomes this later in Leon's campaign. You end up fighting or running from him several times, and each time he seems to up the stakes against you.
  • I Lied: He doesn't outright say it, but he tricks Helena into believing that Deborah will be returned to her safely after she does her part in his plans when in reality, he planned on offing Deborah and using Helena as a scapegoat all along.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets knocked off a rooftop and reverts to his human form long enough to be impaled on the monument in the foyer.
  • Insane Troll Logic: He gives Leon and Helena a Motive Rant as to why he caused the incident in Tall Oaks, believing that had President Benford disclosed the truth behind the Raccoon City incident, the resulting social unrest and mayhem would throw the entire world into chaos. Of course, he caused an actual disaster to prevent a possible one, as Helena points out, and he's giving this speech as Lanshiang is suffering from a bioterrorist attack and is falling apart around him.
  • Kick the Dog: He holds Helena's little sister hostage in order to force her into helping him in his plan... and even when Helena plays her part, Simmons decides to be a rat bastard and use Deborah as a C-Virus guinea pig.
  • Laughing Mad: Completely loses his shit by the final battle with him, giggling like a lunatic in the creepiest manner imaginable.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: He's obsessed with Ada Wong, with whom he had only ever had a professional relationship. So he uses the C-Virus to try to create an "Ada Wong" who can belong to him, eventually succeeding to his satisfaction by using one of his female researchers who had feelings for him, and brainwashes her into thinking she is the real Ada. After Carla finds out and tries to destroy both him and the world, he remains convinced that Ada is a creation of his, screaming about how they were meant to be together, threatening to create another Ada if she won't obey him, and trying to off Leon as competition. The real Ada is understandably disgusted.
  • Magic Pants: No matter how grotesquely he transforms, he still has pants on when he reverts to his human form. Close inspection reveals that while the rest of his clothing was destroyed, his initial C-viral combustion grafted the remains of his jeans to his legs.
  • Moral Myopia: He has the gall to call Carla out for trying to infect and destroy the entire world despite him murdering the President and infecting the entire city of Tall Oaks before nuking it, causing tens of thousands of casualties, all to keep his own corruption a secret. That's not even getting to the fact that him forcibly turning Carla into another Ada Wong is what caused her to do all that in the first place.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Repeatedly tries to kill Leon, initially through indirect action and eventually directly trying to kill him while screaming that the other man isn't worthy of Ada.
  • Necessarily Evil: He thinks of himself as such, anyway, viewing all of his crimes as being better for America than letting Bedford reveal the full truth of Raccoon City.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: For all of his grandeur about maintaining global stability, the only thing he utterly cares about is being in control; his primary motivation for having the President zombified is to prevent the social unrest and mayhem that he believes would be the inevitable result of revealing the U.S. government's involvement in the Raccoon City incident. However, Simmons is prevented from becoming sympathetic by his lust for Ada Wong. Not only do Simmons's actions in pursuit of his lust squick out several other characters (most notably Ada herself and her Love Interest Leon Kennedy, whose disgusted reactions will most likely be shared by the player), they are also the direct cause for Carla Radames's Start of Darkness, and therefore, pretty much every bad thing that happened over the course of the game. Furthermore, in the process of preventing said information from becoming public, he infects and kills over 70,000 innocent people with the C-Virus; Helena even calls him out on it, pointing out that he caused an actual disaster to prevent a possible one.
  • One-Winged Angel: Due to Carla, he mutates through several of these.
  • Order Versus Chaos: He's obsessed with maintaining global stability and order, which is why he infected Tall Oaks with the C-Virus, believing that President Benford revealing the truth behind the Raccoon City incident would destroy that stability. Carla, meanwhile, wants to use the C-Virus to destroy civilization completely and rule over the resulting chaos. Of course, as Leon and Helena point out, Simmons has caused quite a bit of chaos himself, since his idea of averting a possible disaster was to cause an actual disaster.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: Has a massive one towards Ada Wong so much so that he experimented on 12,235 women just to create another Ada.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: After the Raccoon City incident, he becomes Sherry's legal guardian and allowed Claire Redfield to visit her regularly. However, this was not done out of kindness towards Sherry, but rather him protecting his stake in her. An agent that can regenerate is undeniably useful for him. Plus, Claire frequently visiting Sherry and helping Sherry cope with all the experiments he subjects Sherry to was all planned. In fact, Simmons doesn't like Sherry at all, as he mentions that Sherry's cheerful personality makes him sick and he only tolerates her because she may be of some use.
  • Rasputinian Death: He gets shot thousands of times, hit by a train, shot some more, falls dozens of stories, is caught in an inferno, is partly devoured by zombies, has several limbs blown off by lightning, and takes a rocket to the face, before he finally dies when his human form falls off the top of the Quad Tower and is impaled on a pillar.
  • Rule of Symbolism: When he's Impaled with Extreme Prejudice on the monument in the Quad Tower, his blood floods the floor of the courtyard and ends up forming the Umbrella Corporation logo, symbolizing that Simmons was just as bad as Umbrella. It also symbolized the US government's connections to Umbrella.
  • Sanity Slippage: By the end of the game, he's gone so batshit crazy that he's firmly convinced that Carla is the real Ada and is unable to differentiate between the two.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: It seems the law of conservation of mass does not apply to Simmons after he goes One-Winged Angel. They try to make it more believable by making his earlier forms basically hollow and the latter requiring extra mass from zombies. In his death scene, his monster form splatters off into gory debris until he's in human form again.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He never shows interest in any woman but Ada Wong. When she left his services, he turned his loyal researcher Carla into an Ada clone without a second thought.
  • Start X to Stop X: His idea of averting a possible disaster that might occur from President Benford revealing the truth about Raccoon City was to cause an actual disaster by infecting and nuking Tall Oaks. Leon and Helena even point this out to him.
  • Super Toughness: In his One-Winged Angel forms, he can take ludicrous amounts of damage and keep going.
  • Tautological Templar: He honestly seems to believe that everything he does, no matter how evil or crazy, is for the sake of preserving global stability. Never mind that in trying to preserve said stability, he essentially recreates the Raccoon City Incident in Tall Oaks and kills tens of thousands of innocents.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Simmons sets Carla down her dark path by turning her into a clone of Ada against her will and shattering her sanity.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Carla, whom he thinks is still on his side.
  • Villain in a White Suit: Simmons's outfit for the entire game. It gets shredded after Carla infects him.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: As the National Security Advisor, he was considered above suspicion of causing the Tall Oaks incident. It helped that he had set Helena up to take the fall prior to the outbreak and controlled all of the evidence implicating him... though he didn't count on the real Ada leaving Leon and Helena evidence that proves his guilt after his demise.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As the game goes on, when he realises just how badly Carla had played him.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: In-game files reveal that he finds Sherry's kind and charitable nature sickening and disgusting.
  • Voice of the Legion: It comes and goes: sometimes he has it in his human form, usually has it in his monster forms, sometimes he doesn't in either.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Makes B.O.W. history by not only keeping his sanity (as it were), but shows the ability to freely shift between human-ish form and an array of monstrous shapes and back again whenever he pleases.
  • Walking Spoiler: Do you see the tropes and how many spoiler tags are on them?
  • Yandere: And holy shit! See "Love Makes You Crazy".


A character that exists as a co-op partner for Ada Wong. Unlike all the other cooperative partners, he is not a factor in the overall story line, and is excluded from single player as a result. Should the player choose to play with another player, he will appear to assist in combat. He cannot interact with puzzles and in important events, having to rely on the first player (Ada Wong) to do everything. He IS fully playable in the other extra modes, however.

  • Expy: To Hunk. Or he may as well be Hunk. Who’s to say?
  • The Faceless: He is always seen with his mask.
  • Featureless Protagonist: He has no place in the story at all. He IS just as capable in combat as all the other characters, though. Taken Up to Eleven in that combat and assisting his partner is the ONLY thing he is allowed to do, and he is unable to do any Action Commands except ones directly relating to countering enemies, jumping across chasms, or climbing ladders.
  • The Generic Guy: Unlike past and future male protagonists such as Ethan Winters, he is just sort of there. The only time he's acknowledged is if he dies and Ada shouts a Big "NO!".
  • Neck Snap: His finishing move, almost the same as Chris's.
  • No Name Given: He is only known as "Agent", and even then, he is never acknowledged by name or anywhere outside of preset partner dialogue choices.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Since he cannot get around certain obstacles like Ada can, he's teleported to Ada's location when she advances without him.

    Adam Benford 
Voiced by: Michael Donovan

The President of the United States in 2013 and a personal friend of Leon's. He and Leon went back decades together, when he was implied to be the one who recruited the latter into the Division of Security Operations, a federal bio-terrorism response unit that succeeds the earlier Federal Bio-terrorism Commission, following the Raccoon City outbreak. He is assassinated-by-proxy during the Tall Oaks outbreak, by being exposed to the C-Virus, which zombifies him and forces Leon to put him down.

  • And Then Adam Was a Zombie: Is infected by the gas cloud and becomes a murderous flesh-eater along with every other poor bastard who breathed in too much of that Fog of Doom.
  • Benevolent Boss: If Leon's fondness of him is any indication, he was this.
  • First-Name Basis: With Leon, due to their history together.
  • He Knows Too Much: He's assassinated by Simmons to silence him on matters regarding the US government's dealing with bio-weaponry in the past, which he was going to deliver during the speech at Ivy University.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: By his own admission to Leon, he'd been friends with Simmons for thirty years.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: Of the "President Personable" kind, right down to being targeted by the conspiracy.
  • Posthumous Character: His death plays a large role in the events of the game, but we only ever see him as a zombie and in Leon's flashbacks.
  • President Evil: Completely averted. He is a good man and a Reasonable Authority Figure who wants to come clean about the Raccoon City incident to the world, including the U.S. government's part in it, so they can all move forward and start working together to fight bio-terrorism.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's honest, listens to his subordinates, and tries to promote trustworthy, competent people to where they can do the most good. And when Helena is found blameless for her part in his death, Leon says President Benford would have said the same.
  • Remember the New Guy?: He was Leon's recruiter before the events of RE4 and has been his friend for a decade, but he was never mentioned before. Justified in that he has little to do with fieldwork, which is basically all we see.
  • Retired Badass: Ex-military. Sadly, it doesn't help him.
  • Staking the Loved One: Leon is forced to shoot his reanimated corpse. It's clearly a distressing event for Leon, who for once is hesitant, shaky, and even tries futilely to talk him down.

    University Staff Member 
Voiced by:

A member of the faculty at Ivy University. He asks Leon and Helena to help him find his missing daughter.

  • Despair Event Horizon: Liz succumbing to the C-Virus drives him to the point of despair. He breaks down, cradling her dead body. This gives her the opportunity to attack him and bite out his throat when she revives as a zombie.
  • Hope Spot: Subverted. As thanks for helping him find Liz, he offers to take Leon and Helena with him in his car. This amounts to nothing since not only does he get killed but the parking garage turns out to be overflowing with zombies, so taking his car was never an option. And since it's obvious from his coughing up blood that he's a Zombie Infectee himself, he was pretty much doomed anyway.
  • No Name Given: He isn't identified by name, although the BradyGames strategy guide identifies him as Robert. However, Capcom has not confirmed this as canon.
  • Quest Giver: His role during the section of the game at the university, when he asks Leon and Helena to help him find Liz.
  • Red Shirt: The latest in a long line of doomed Resident Evil supporting characters.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He isn't around very long before getting killed by his infected daughter.
  • Zombie Infectee: He was coughing up some blood even before Liz killed him, so even if he'd survived the elevator scene, he probably would've turned into a zombie.

Voiced by:

The faculty member's missing daughter.

  • And Then John Was a Zombie: After seeming to die during the elevator ride, she suddenly revives as one of the living dead.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: As a zombie.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Helena pops one in her noodle.
  • Flat Character: She's just a basic Distressed Damsel in need of rescuing.
  • Hope Spot: Averted. She's clearly going to turn into a zombie whether her dad gets her to the car or not, and by gum that's exactly what happens.
  • Self-Made Orphan: After turning into a zombie, she kills her father.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's difficult to discuss her role in the plot without outlining what she does, because her only role in the story is to get rescued, die, revive as a zombie, kill her dad and finally get blown away by Helena.
  • Zombie Infectee: She's infected with the C-Virus and turns into a zombie after seeming to die on the elevator.

Voiced by:

A survivor who joins Leon and Helena.

  • Dirty Coward: Abandons Nancy to die and tries to save himself.
  • Don't Celebrate Just Yet: He's quite pleased with himself after downing the first zombie he encounters after running off and abandoning everyone else. It promptly turns into a Bloodshot and kills him.
  • From Bad to Worse: He thinks he's facing an ordinary zombie and shoots it, only for it to revive and become a Bloodshot, which kills him.
  • It's All About Me: Insists he is more important than everyone else, including his own girlfriend.
  • Jerkass: He is completely unhelpful and antagonistic.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Running off and leaving Nancy and the others to get killed leads directly to his own death when he gets killed by zombie that turns into a Bloodshot.

Peter's girlfriend.


    Carla Radames
Voiced by: Courtenay Taylor

The mysterious founder and leader of Neo-Umbrella.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Hell, yeah.
  • Action Fashionista: Out of all of the characters in the game, she's easily the most fashionable.
  • Asshole Victim: Her pathetic death at the hands of the real Ada was very deserved.
  • Ax-Crazy: By the time she and the real Ada meet face to face, she's pretty much completely lost it. Although infecting herself with The Virus (which also doubles as a Psycho Serum) probably didn't help matters much.
  • Badass Driver: Barely suffers any trouble when eluding Chris and Piers in a car chase.
  • Big Bad: She's this for 6.
    • Elaborating, she's definitely the Big Bad of Chris's, Jake's and Ada's campaigns, while Simmons is more prominent in Leon's. It's appropriate to say that both villains are as much against each other as they are against the heroes. Carla is more identified as the overall Big Bad because she's the one who leads Neo-Umbrella, is responsible for all the chaos in the story (which ends up affecting even Leon's campaign), and the game's Evil Plan is hers.
    • Non-Action Big Bad: That being said, she's more of a schemer than a doer. Of course, she's more than capable of getting her own hands dirty, as she both personally oversees Jake and Sherry's capture and infects Chris' entire squad. This gets averted in Ada's campaign where she goes One-Winged Angel and is fought and killed by Ada.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In a way. Despite her death, the missiles loaded with the C-Virus successfully launched and struck Tatchi afterwards, thus spreading throughout the city, so in the end she does get the last laugh.
  • Blob Monster: Carla's One-Winged Angel form, which she gained from injecting herself with a powerful dose of the C-Virus.
  • Chaos Is Evil: Her plan amounts to this. "Hell will rise, and chaos will reign! And I, Ada Wong, will be Queen of the new world!"
  • The Chessmaster: She manages to manipulate just about everyone around her, playing Simmons for a fool and even drawing Ada into the chaos along the way.
  • Clone by Conversion: Of Ada Wong, thanks to Simmons.
  • Cloning Blues: After her transformation, she initially believed herself to be Ada Wong, before the Carla persona regained control. There still seem to be remains from her Cloning Blues, though — when she's Drunk with Power right after injecting herself with the C-Virus, she claims to be the real Ada Wong.
  • Color-Coded Character: Her outfit is dark blue, in direct contrast to Ada's usual bright red motif. Also, in terms of material - Ada prefers to wear softer, flowing materials; whereas Carla's dress seems to be a thicker, fibrous, more conservative polyester fabric
  • Color Me Black: Changed from a blonde-haired Caucasian woman into a copy of an Asian.
  • Combat Stilettos: Those high-heeled boots don't slow her down, even when she's running from Chris.
  • Cool Car: A very expensive-looking red convertible she uses to drive around Lanshiang.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She always seems to take every little possibility into account and create plans behind plans behind plans. She thinks about the possibility even of her own death, creating "Plan D" to be automatically activated if that comes to happen.
  • Dark Action Girl: While she generally pulls the strings behind the scenes, she's nearly as capable as the real Ada. She's easily able to elude Chris and Piers on multiple occasions, taunting them all the way.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A very cruel one.
  • Death of Personality: Downplayed. Carla's mind was practically a blank slate immediately after her rebirth as "Ada Wong". Simmons then taught Carla how to behave like the original Ada, right down to her habits and traits. After some time, what's left of Carla's original self gradually crept back into her mind, screaming for vengeance against the man she once loved.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Wanting revenge against Simmons for experimenting on her and using her? Understandable. Wanting to destroy the entire planet with the C-Virus as twisted payback against him and the Family? Not so much.
  • Doppelgänger: Of Ada Wong.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Ada states that had Carla limited her vendetta to Simmons, she might have helped her. Carla's response is to tell Ada to "Get over herself".
  • Drunk with Power: Her diabolical speech after injecting herself with the C-Virus can only be described as this.
  • Dystopia Justifies the Means: She openly admits that this is the end result of her plan: to spread the C-Virus globally and take over after civilization has been destroyed.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Her ultimate goal, orchestrating virus outbreaks across the whole planet. If anything, considering the amount of casualties around the world, she nearly succeeded.
  • Exposed to the Elements: Her blue dress doesn't look like it would offer any good protection in a cold, snowy area but she isn't phazed at all.
  • Evil Is Petty: When it comes down to it, her entire Evil Plan, which leads to at least three cities across the world being destroyed, is little more than twisted payback at Simmons for subjecting her to C-Virus experiments.
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: Infects Simmons with the C-Virus with this trope in mind:
    Carla: "At first, you'll be afraid. But don't worry. You're just becoming the monster you always were."
  • Evil Genius: Played with. She's definitely a genius as she received a doctorate at the age of fifteen, but she didn't become unreal until she realized what Simmons had done to her.
  • Evil Twin: Not genetically, but Ada refers to her as such.
    • Evil Knockoff: Ada also calls her this in their final battle.
      Ada: Hate to break it to you, but you're nothing but a cheap knockoff at best.
  • Eye Beams: A variant; she actually builds up acidic fluid in her eyes and blinks it off as a projectile.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Like Deborah, the transformation process destroys her clothing when she mutates and tries to kill Ada.
  • For the Evulz: Unlike Wesker, whose delusions of grandeur led him to believe that B.O.W. experimentation would unlock the next stage of human evolution, Carla's primary goal is initially rooted in her vengeful designs against Simmons - she has zero remorse for any living thing, human or otherwise (save for the Ustanak), and her residual Omnicidal Maniac tendencies appear to all be simply for the sake of plunging the world into chaos. However, her severe Cloning Blues-induced Villainous Breakdown and endgame Godhood Seeker speech seems to illustrate that she's perhaps more like Albert Wesker than she'd probably like to admit.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: A random viral researcher working for Simmons with a crush on him who ends up becoming the Resident Evil villain who comes closest to destroying the entire world.
  • Godhood Seeker: "And I, Ada Wong will be the Queen of the new world!"
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: The same kind that Ada uses.
  • The Heavy: For Ada and Chris' campaigns.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Before she became Ada's doppelganger, Carla was truly in love with Simmons and worked hard on creating another Ada Wong for him despite her own feelings. Unfortunately, Simmons' obsession led him to betray Carla by using her as a test subject, resulting in the loss of her very self. One can only imagine how different Carla's life would have been were it not for Simmons' obsession with another woman.
  • Hot Scientist: She was quite attractive as her original self before her forced transformation and still is afterwards.
  • Humanoid Abomination: During the boss fight against her Blob Monster form, the liquid Carla is composed of can turn into humanoid shapes, mainly a body of liquid, enormous faces, or many arms grabbing at Ada from out of walls.
  • Hypocrite: Played With. it seems like Carla is this when she describes the late Albert Wesker as a "colossal imbecile" for his attempts to destroy the world with bioterrorism, while she is doing the exact same thing; right down to loading missiles with her virus, and rambling on about being Queen of the new world note . However, it's possible that she wasn't mocking his motivation but rather his competence in carrying out his plan, in which case she has room to talk since she came closer than Wesker ever did.
  • Jerkass: Carla is one of the cruelest characters throughout the franchise, taking every chance to rub Chris's failures in his face, still...
    • Jerkass Has a Point: You really can't disagree with her when she points out Chris' incompetence in 6, even going as far as to say that just being under his leadership, his team had an abysmal survival rate.
  • Kick the Dog: Her default mode in dealing with the protagonists.
    • She forces Chris to watch his team die at her hands, then takes every chance to taunt him about their deaths.
    • She tells Jake his father's identity, and mocks him over having a failed Omnicidal Maniac as a father.
    • She throws Death Trap after trap at Leon and taunts him, making him think that Ada is trying to kill him.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Her decision to infect and mutate Simmons can best be described as this. Pretty hard not to cheer her on for it when we remember that this is the guy who killed the President and destroyed Tall Oaks while framing Leon and Helena for both, and also held Helena's little sister hostage to blackmail Helena into helping him do so and then experimenting on her with the C-Virus regardless. And this is used on her in turn by Simmons’ followers who snipe her, forcing her to undergo a freakish mutation where she eventually gets killed by Ada.
  • Kill and Replace: Attempted and failed against Ada.
  • Kill It with Ice: The only way to truly hurt her in her boss fight is to shoot blue liquid nitrogen tanks around the area. First these slow her down, but a final one behind her finishes the job.
  • Lady of War: Just like the real Ada Wong, she has an air of elegance about her.
  • Laughing Mad: The Slime Girl copies that she creates during her boss fight giggle creepily as they close in, and its fair to say that by this point she’s nuttier than squirrel shit.
  • Manipulative Bitch: To Simmons, and previously to Chris' team in Edonia. She tries this on Ada, but this doesn't work nearly as well.
  • Me's a Crowd: A very disturbing Blob Monster and Humanoid Abomination variant in Ada's boss fight against her.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Wanting revenge on Simmons for turning her into a doppelgänger of Ada without her consent is pretty understandable if not justified. Unfortunately, Carla goes about this by trying to throw the world into complete chaos just to hurt Simmons and framing the real Ada, who had no involvement in her victimization at Simmons's hands, for her crimes. Ada even says that she would have helped Carla if she had just limited her wrath to only Simmons.
  • Naked on Revival: The videotape found by Leon and Helena shows her "rebirth" as Ada. She pops out of the C-Virus cocoon, completely naked and covered in fluid.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Out of all the series' villains, including Wesker himself, Carla comes the closest to achieving her goal. In fact, if it weren't for the real Ada's involvement, she would have won easily.
  • Nerves of Steel: Just like the real Ada, she remains cool as a cucumber in any situation. Taken Up to Eleven when Chris and Piers confront her; she calmly taunts him over the loss of his men and barely shows any reaction to having her C-Virus dart gun shot out of her hand. Although this vanishes after she comes back from the dead thanks to an injection of the C Virus and becomes a psychotic Blob Monster.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Thanks to a Trauma Conga Line that starts with Cloning Blues and Fake Memories, Carla goes from an out-of-left-field villain with a simple case of Woman Scorned to the villain responsible for causing the most destruction on a global scale in the entire game series.
  • One-Winged Angel: After injecting herself with the C-Virus before she was shot, Carla transforms into a white Blob Monster.
  • Order Versus Chaos: Simmons is obsessed with maintaining global stability and order, which is why he infected Tall Oaks with the C-Virus, believing that President Benford revealing the truth behind the Raccoon City incident would destroy that stability. Carla, meanwhile, wants to use the C-Virus to destroy civilization completely and rule over the resulting chaos.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Her plan basically boils down to bombing major cities across the world with viral missiles and unleashing an Eldritch Abomination she herself created to agamogenesize when it reaches the surface and infect the entire planet.
  • Pet the Dog: According to one file, Carla is mentioned to be nice towards the Ustanak, almost motherly. In fact, she seemed to be motherly towards all of her creations. She considers the Haos to be her "special pet" and calls the Chrysalids "her little cocoons".
  • Pride Before a Fall: Carla is usually very cold, calculating, and careful, but she commits a fatal mistake out of pride: taunting Ada Wong about her plans and her intention to frame her. Ada's involvement is the very key that leads into Carla's downfall. According to a file, Carla may have contacted Ada Wong out of the desire to be saved by her, but by the time Ada comes across her, her mind is already lost.
  • Red Oni: An odd example: Carla, though wearing primarily blue, is slightly more confident to the point of arrogance, contrasting to Ada, who commonly wears red but is also cool and aloof.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: One of her main goals is taking revenge on Simmons for using her as an unwilling subject for Project Ada, which includes, but isn't limited to having him infected with a highly powerful and dangerous strain of enhanced C-Virus... and taunting him about it.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Adorns a flowing red scarf, and is capable of kicking ass.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: When she and Jake meet in Edonia, Carla has absolutely zero qualms against referring to the late Albert Wesker as a "colossal imbecile" and a "fool." While talking to Wesker's own son, no less.
  • Sanity Slippage: Despite not being all there thanks to Simmons' experiments and brainwashing, she was composed and calm when she first entered, all the way up to catching a bullet in her chest, but when the C virus injection she took kicks in and saves her from death, she starts ranting and raving as she disintegrates into a white paste, and by the time of her demise she's a slimy mass of Ax-Crazy, she's having trouble speaking, and is ranting nonstop about her desire to kill Ada.
  • Slime Girl: A particularly grotesque form. She uses her mutated body to form deformed copies of herself that secrete acid, scream like infants and walk in a weirdly sensual manner if they aren't tripping over themselves.
  • The Starscream: Even after Carla remembers everything and regains control of herself, she pretends to still be loyal to Simmons for some time, in order to use his own money and resources to advance with her plans, which include destroying him and everything he holds dear. Eventually, she decides she doesn't need this anymore and leaves him.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Her ab-lib for telling her teammates to fall back in the alternate modes indicates she does not play with others.
    "Move or I'll shoot you!"
  • Slasher Smile: Some of the faces that she forms in her boss fight sport one.
  • Teen Genius: Completed a doctorate course in genetics at fifteen.
  • Troll: Especially when she taunts Chris over the death of his soldiers. Whom she mutated with the C-Virus, all while wearing a sadistic smile on her face. And during the entire time she's taunting him, Carla is mockingly displaying the very gun she used to infect one of his men with.
    Carla: Still haven't had enough, huh? Even after losing all your men — again?
    (Chris beings to become more incensed)
    Carla: With your track record I gotta say, I'd hate to a member of your team, Chris.
    (Becoming even more angry, Chris advances onto Carla but is stopped by Piers)
    Piers: Don't listen to her, Captain.
    Carla: But where are my manners? I mean, really, I should be thanking your men for being such good test subjects.
    (Enraged, Chris fires the gun out of Carla's hand. Carla only gives a smug smirk while calmly shaking her hand to ease the pain.)
  • The Unfettered: Even before her Evil Plan began, she was remarkably ruthless — for instance, choosing to make her base in China because of the sheer number of unsuspecting civilians she could have abducted to use as unwilling test subjects.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Her crazed rant to the real Ada as she's undergoing her One-Winged Angel/Blob Monster transformation is indisputable proof that she's pretty much snapped.
  • Walking Spoiler: Even more than Simmons.
  • Woman Scorned: The main reason why she's determined to destroy Simmons and everything he held dear. Carla loved Simmons dearly before her rebirth as "Ada Wong".
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: While she may have desired the world's destruction, she never really asked to become what she is, and Simmons manipulated and mutated her against her will. Ada actually sympathizes with her to a degree, even telling Carla that, had she not also tried to destroy the world, she would have gladly helped her take revenge on Simmons.


    J'avo & Complete Mutations 
Humans directly infected with the C-Virus, as opposed to those caught in the airborne variant, who become mere zombies. J'avo do not lose their intelligence and gain increased durability and ferocity, but it is their ability to regenerate wounds by triggering selective cellular mutation, allowing them to transform into a variety of different forms, that truly makes them dangerous. In rare cases, they may enter cocoons and undergo a complete genetic transformation, becoming a monster called a Complete Mutation.

The Edonian Liberation Army used J'avo during the Edonian civil war, and Neo-Umbrella effectively has a private army of J'avo supersoldiers at their disposal.

  • Action Bomb: Telo-Ekspolzija, as their name indicates, are living suicide weapons that blow up when shot or if they get close enough to a victim.
  • Ax-Crazy: The J'avo suffer from a bad case of this, having been driven completely psychotic from the infection and consequently lashing out at anything that crosses their path.
  • Adaptive Ability: Their special trademark. Hit them in a specific area, and they may mutate it to give them a new power. Or they may transform into a Complete Mutation.
  • Armless Biped: Strelats have no arms, despite running around on two legs.
  • Armor Is Useless: Averted. Napads are effectively Nigh-Invulnerable unless you manage to blow off their armor or get the right angle and accuracy to target their gaps. Noga-Oklop and Telo-Krljusht J'avo are completely bulletproof where their armor covers them.
  • Attack Its Weak Point:
    • See that big glowing red tumor-thing in the hollow between a Glava-Smech J'avo's mandibles? Shoot it!
    • Napads have a huge chink in their armor under their shoulders; hitting them here, or making a new weakspot by blowing off their armor with a grenade, is the only way to efficiently hurt them.
    • Shooting a Ruka-Bedem J'avo anywhere that's not being covered by its shield-arm is a waste of time and ammo.
  • The Berserker: Glava-Begunats J'avo and Napads both attack wildly and ferociously, with no greater purpose than rending victims apart with their bare hands.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Strelats can lash a foe with their barbed tail up close.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Ruka-Srp mutation is a "blade replacing the limb" variant, giving the J'avo a massive, sickle-like reaping claw.
  • Body Horror: Just the default J'avo has a torn up face with multiple, slime-weeping inhuman eyes staring out at random points. Bu it is their mutative abilities that truly distort them into grotesque new forms.
  • Breath Weapon: The Glava-Dim J'avo constantly exhale a toxic smoke that poisons and blinds anyone who comes near them.
  • Combat Tentacles: The Ruka-Khvatanje J'avo use their centipede-like arm to reach out and grapple victims from afar in a case of Tentacle Rope. If they want to soften their victim up first, they can just pummel them senseless from afar by using their arm like a giant whip.
  • Creepy Crows: The Mesests look like distorted, humanoid crows.
  • Extremity Extremist: J'avo will only make melee attacks with the limbs that have mutated. Noga-Oklop J'avo in particular rely on kicking first and foremost, even ignoring their guns to do so.
  • Expy:
    • The Rasklapanje's physical appearance, independently mobile body parts, penchant for traveling through sewer pipes, and disturbing method of reproduction are all eerily reminiscent of Flukeman, one of the more infamous Monsters of the Week from The X-Files.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: A J'avo's face sprouts multiple eyes as part of the infection, visibly tearing up their face in the process.
  • Faceless Goons: The J'avo in China wear Peking opera masks, obscuring their deformed faces.
  • In a Single Bound: Noga-Skakanje J'avo are just as capable of leaping around as the grasshoppers they resemble. Noga-Trchanje aren't so spectacular at leaping, but still make some mighty impressive jumps and pounces.
  • It Can Think: J'avo retain all of their previous human intelligence, allowing them to plan, communicate, coordinate attacks, use guns...
    • In fact, all of the mutations are fairly intelligent in their actions. Ranged units taking cover and staying out of sight, while those built for smashing up their prey actively avoid gunfire and cover up their weak points if they can.
  • Killer Gorilla: Napads looks something like skinned, armor-plated gorillas.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Ruka-Bedem J'avo are Nigh-Invulnerable if you try to attack their mutated arm-shield.
  • Me's a Crowd: Gnezdo can pull this off to confuse their targets.
  • Meaningful Name: All of the specific mutation strains, the Complete Mutations and even the name J'avo itself all have some logical reference behind them in Serbian, the language of the region where they are first encountered.
    • J'avo is a dialect variant of "davo", the Serbian word for "Devil".
    • All of the J'avo mutations begin with either "Glava", "Ruka", "Noga" or "Telo", the Serbian words for "Head", "Arm", "Leg" or "Body" respectively. Take a wild guess where each mutation manifests itself?
      • "Glava-Sluz", meaning "Head-Slime", is a mutation that grants Super Spit.
      • "Glava-Smech", meaning "Head-Laughter", is a mutation that replaces the head with an impossibly wide, gaping mouth.
      • "Glava-Begunats", meaning "Head-Runner" or "Runaway Head", is a mutation that turns the J'avo into The Berserker.
      • "Glava-Dim", meaning "Head-Smoker", is a mutation that grants the J'avo a toxic smoke-based Breath Weapon.
      • "Ruka-Srp", meaning "Arm-Sickle", creates a mantis-like talon that functions as a Blade Below the Shoulder.
      • "Ruka-Khvatanje", meaning "Arm-Capture" or "Catcher Arm", creates a centipede-like limb that can reach out and snag someone like Combat Tentacles of the Tentacle Rope variety.
      • "Ruka-Bedem", meaning "Arm-Wall", creates a super-durable shield to cover the torso and head.
      • "Noga-Trchanje" meaning "Leg-Work", turns the J'avo into a spider-taur creature that has Wall Crawling and enhanced leaping abilities.
      • "Noga-Let" meaning "Leg-Flight", gives the J'avo wings and lets it fly.
      • "Noga-Skakanje" meaning "Leg-Hopper" or "Leg-Jumps", gives the J'avo grasshopper-like legs that allow them to jump huge distances, which they favor doing in order to ambush prey in melee or get to a better firing angle.
      • "Noga-Oklop" meaning "Leg-Armor", covers the J'avo's legs in powerful armored muscles that deflect bullets and let it deliver devastating kicks.
      • "Telo-Ekspolzija", meaning "Body-Explosions", turns the J'avo into an Action Bomb.
      • "Telo-Krljusht", meaning "Body-Scales", covers the J'avo in a biological Bulletproof Vest that makes them Nigh-Invulnerable.
      • "Telo-Magla", meaning "Body-Mist", causes the J'avo to start generating obscuring mist.
    • The "Strelats" mutation takes its name from the Serbian for "to shoot" or "shooter", and it attacks primarily with a biological Flechette Storm.
    • The "Napad" mutation takes its name from the Serbian for "attack" or "assault", and it's the most heavily armored and violent mutation.
    • The "Mesets" mutation is a flying Creepy Crows creature that takes its name from the Serbian for "moon".
    • The "Gnezdo" mutation takes its name from the Serbian for "nest" and is a hive-minded swarm of mutant insects.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: You cannot hurt a Napad unless you breach its armor, whilst Telo-Krljusht J'avo can't be hurt, period, by anything directed to the chest region. Headshots, limb shots and explosives are another story though. Meanwhile, Gnezdo are immune to pretty much any attack that doesn't hit their Hive Queen.
  • One-Hit Kill: The Gava-Smech J'avo will bite you in half in a single shot if you let it get too close.
  • Painful Transformation: The mutations that the J'avo undergo when wounded are not pleasant, if the fact that they hunch over in pain or cry out as their limb tears (complete with blood and gore) itself apart and puts itself back together into a grotesque new form within a matter of seconds is anything to go by.
    • The transformation into a J'avo itself must not be very pleasant either considering that Jake's squad screamed in pain as they were changing.
  • Super Soldier: J'avo are this to a T, having been made either from Hired Guns or have been given military training and are capable of standing on fairly even ground with the BSAA.
  • Super Strength: Napads and Noga-Oklop J'avo are immensely strong and hit like a runaway train if you let them get close to you. Regular J'avo also have this to an extent, as one has been seen giving a soldier a Neck Lift without much effort.
  • Super Spit: The Glava-Sluz J'avo can spray a noxious slime that encases a victim and holds them in place.
  • Slasher Smile: The J'avo encountered in the game have a disturbing habit of doing this. But one of the real scenes where it shows is the first time the Ruka-Srp mutation is introduced, where after said J'avo's arm is shot, it proceeds to mutate into a Sinister Scythe while the J'avo grins full force in an utterly murderous manner and stares Chris down.
  • Sinister Scythe: The Ruka-Srp mutation turns the J'avo's arm into a Blade Below the Shoulder, with the elbow inverted and everything else all the way down reconfigured into a jagged, mean-looking sickle.
  • Tears of Blood: In an overlap with Bad Black Barf; J'avo weep thick, slimy black tears from all of their eyes, covering their faces in trails of noxious black muck.
  • Technically Living Zombie: J'avo are technically zombies of the "rage zombie" variety; living humans infected with a plague, they technically retain all of their intelligence and bodily functions.
  • Wall Crawling: The Noga-Trchanje J'avo are capable of doing this... but what would you expect when their lower body has been replaced by a Giant Spider?
  • Winged Humanoid:
    • Noga-Let J'avo are a twisted variant; their legs have mutated by fusing together into a single large moth-like organism, which flies whilst trailing the still-conscious and aware humanoid torso of the J'avo beneath it like a disfigured, oversized abdomen.
    • Telo-Magla J'avo are a technicality; they have multiple wings growing from their bodies, but these can't fly, they just disperse the smoke it secretes around their body.
    • Mesets are humanoid Creepy Crows with fully functional wings.
  • The Worm That Walks: The Gnezdo are a variant of these; most of their bugs are small, making them extremely hard to hurt, but their consciousness resides in a single massive bee-like "Hive Queen" — kill it, and you kill them.


  • Body Horror: Lepotica is a pear-shaped, vaguely feminine creature whose head can open up like a flower, with its upper jaw hinging open 180 degrees before the right and left sides of the face peel away, to expose a lashing, worm-like tongue. It's also covered in dozens of viral gas-generating sacks on its torso that look like sagging breasts.
  • Fog of Doom: The Lepotica creates this by dispersing clouds of C-Viral fumes, turning those near her into C-Virus Zombies.
  • Meaningful Name: Lepotica means "(Feminine) Beauty" in Serbian, serving as an Ironic Name referring to its grotesquely feminine form.
  • Multi Boobage: Lepotica is covered in grotesquely breast-like gas-sacks.
  • Sissy Villain: Lepotica may, arguably, be female, but its effeminate giggling and squealing still conveys this feel.


  • Body Horror: Brzak resembles a monstrous, deformed shark with claw-like hand-flippers and an extendable claw on its tongue.
  • Eye Scream: Over the course of the battle with Brzak, Leon and Helena will gouge out its eyes.
  • Threatening Shark: Brzak, in a nutshell. A giant intelligent shark that likes freshwater, has something approaching Combat Tentacles for atongue, and can climb on land.
  • Meaningful Name: Brzak means "rapids" in Serbian, and it's a fish-like monster fought in the middle of a rapids.


  • Attack Its Weak Point: Killing Ogromen requires grabbing the mechanical pieces hanging of out its back to expose its beating heart, so you can then shoot it.
  • Body Horror: Ogroman is a distorted, hunch-backed, skeletal giant with a too-wide mouth that contains only a handful of twisted, tusk-like teeth. It also has a mechanical implant dangling out of its hump; pulling on this will yank its distorted heart mostly out of its body, exposing its weakspot.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In Jake's campaign, you can finish off the Ogroman by pulling a spike/rib out of his back and plunge it into his exposed heart.
  • Meaningful Name: Ogroman means "Enormous/Gigantic" in Serbian, and is a towering giant creature.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: Ogroman is the biggest humanoid B.O.W seen in the series, surpassed only by the Uroboros Aheri from Resident Evil 5.


  • Attack Its Weak Point: You can only hurt Illuzija by shooting it in its mouth.
  • Body Horror: Illuzija resembles a giant, eyeless snake with skin torn open over underlying bone plates in random spots and a mouth filled with what are either wriggling fangs or insect claws.
  • Eyeless Face: The Illuzija's eyes are just... gone.
  • Eye Scream: It's unclear if the Illuzija's eyes melted or were just grown over. Still, that's not natural.
  • High-Voltage Death: How Illuzija finally meet its end, as bullets alone proved inefficient.
  • It Can Think: Like many other victims of the C Virus, these infected are unique in that they retain a lot of their former intelligence. The Illuzija however, stands out the most considering that it both sadistically taunts it's hunters, as well as use it's cloaking ability to stalk them and observe as well as draw the team away from each other for an easier kill.
  • Meaningful Name: Illuzija means "illusion" or "phantom" in Serbian, and it's capable of rendering itself invisible.
  • Mythology Gag: You have to roam through Illuzija's lair, avoiding deadly ambushes, and kill it by shooting it in its open mouth. Very much like the fights against Yawn in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.
  • Scaled Up: Illuzija is a gargantuan, man-eating, invisible snake with human-like intelligence... because it used to be a human.


  • The Berserker: The Ubistvo is just a mindless killing machine that attacks everything in sight.
  • Body Horror: Ubistvo has bony armor growing out of its twisted legs, a severe case of Two-Faced that's resulted in half of its face being just... gone so that two bugs can protrude from where the brain was, and its right arm being twisted into an organic chainsaw. Which is actually made up of its heart and ribcage.
  • Chainsaw Good: Not when they're organic chainsaws being wielded by The Berserker, they're not!
  • Meaningful Name: In Serbian, Ubistvo means "Murder", and it's The Berserker and armed with an array of One-Hit Kill attacks.
  • One-Hit Kill: Most of the Ubistvo's attacks will put a character into dying status (or skip it entirely and kill them) if they land.


  • Animate Body Parts: Rasklapanje takes this to the level of being a twisted variant of The Worm That Walks.
  • Body Horror: Rasklapanje looks like it has melted its skin, almost leech-like, before its various body-parts separate and crawl around with throbbing, pink, intestinal-looking tentacles.
  • Healing Factor: You basically can't kill a Rasklapanje, it just regenerates all the damage you do. The only to who actually die in a cutscene show that extreme methods (being shoved in a meat grinder and falling in a vat of molten metal) are needed.
  • Meaningful Name: Rasklapanje means "Dismantle" in Serbian, and it has the power to break down into a swarm of Animate Body Parts and then reassemble itself.
  • Not Quite Dead: Due to Rasklapanje's Healing Factor, when they "die" you can clearly see that they're still twitching and making creepy sounds.
  • The Worm That Walks: Rasklapanje's various organs are all independently thinking and functioning creatures that just so happen to choose to form a single humanoid form at times. For bonus points, even in their combined state, they look like a humanoid leech.


A Tyrant-like B.O.W. used by Carla Radames to pursue and capture Jake Muller.

  • An Arm and a Leg: A file mentions the test subject that became it lost his right arm in a lab accident, prompting ...
  • Artificial Limbs/Swiss Army Appendage: And it has a lot of accessories for it.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Its only vulnerable point is its oversized heart. It takes alot of damage for it to be vulnerable itself, though.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: When it attacks Jake and Sherry with a drill, they counter with a mining drill of their own, eventually overpowering and impaling it.
  • Book-Ends: He's both the first and the last boss you face in Jake's campaign.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He brings spare arms to encounters so that he can stay up to speed in a fight. Helena even acknowledges this in her one encounter with him.
    Helena: Give him credit. At least he came prepared.
  • Determinator: Just like his predecessor, he doesn't know when or how to quit. Once you have been targeted, you are as good as dead, unless you are a badass like our heroes/heroines.
  • The Dragon: To Carla.
  • Dumb Muscle: Subverted; despite its inhumanity, it keeps an impressive level of intelligence. It's capable of using and adapting its equipment to the task at hand and will wise up to Jake and Sherry's stealth tactics if they futz up too much. In fact, one file mentions the C-Virus may have actually increased its intelligence as a side effect.
  • Faster Than They Look: Lampshaded by Sherry:
    Sherry: He sure can move fast for something that size.
  • Final Boss: Of Jake's campaign.
  • Genius Bruiser: Downplayed. It may not look that way and it isn't exactly a genius, but it can wise up to Jake and Sherry's tactics, carry extra weaponised prosthetics to change it's own tactics if it finds itself at a disadvantage and can use the environment around it to it's advantage as well.
  • Healing Factor: Averted; despite being a C-Virus B.O.W., and despite being super tough, it lacks even conventional healing ability. Six months later, it still sports the wounds Jake and Sherry gave it with a mining drill. A file mentions the C-Virus didn't even regenerate its lost right arm prior, prompting Artificial Limbs to compensate.
  • The Heavy: In Jake's campaign.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: If one of the files really is his diary entry just before being injected, all he once dreamed of was being reborn as a super powered being.
  • Implacable Man: It relentlessly hunts down Jake and Sherry, whether they're running from him inside a building, or trying to escape it while on a helicopter.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Don't let its size fool you; this thing is incredibly fast, and deadly in melee range. Sherry even acknowledges that it is fast for its size.
  • Meaningful Name: "Revolution" in Serbian, signifying its brute strength.
  • Mook Maker: Creates the Oko creatures from an organ on its back. They function as a Patrolling Mook for it.
  • Recurring Boss: Hounds Jake and Sherry from beginning to end and even has a round with Leon and Helena.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: The Ustanak's strength fluctuates depending on how much of a threat the plot needs him to be. He can go from a Nigh-Invulnerable One-Hit Kill machine to being weak enough that Jake can trade blows with him in close quarters.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: One of it's arm cannons is essentially an oversized shotgun.
  • Super Toughness: Over the course of the game, Ustanak survives several boss fights, falling from a great height, getting impaled through the stomach with a mining drill and being burnt alive in a pool of lava. He finally dies after being shot in his exposed heart with a magnum.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of the Tyrant series, but mainly Nemesis, due to being a relentless and durable hunter, loyal only to its creators, and being a recurring threat throughout Jake and Sherry's story.
  • Tranquil Fury: After Carla's death, a file mentions it may have this or sadness.
  • Undying Loyalty: A file mentions it has this towards Carla. According to another file, he had been this way before being transformed into Ustanak.


The ultimate creation of Carla, designed to infect the world.

  • Advancing Boss of Doom: The first couple of stages just consist of running from the thing.
  • Artistic License – Biology: An odd subversion. While there are many examples of the C-virus stretching the bounds on conservation of mass with its mutations (with the enhanced C-virus breaking the bubble entirely), there seems to be a hint that HAOS was made using numerous bodies. Examining its chrysalis with a sniper rifle, one can see encased bodies sticking out of the cocoon.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Designed to do this, though it was awakened too early to be fully active, and is killed before it can carry out its mission.
  • Final Boss: Of Chris's campaign.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Possesses no attacks that spread infection, despite it being its main function.
  • Healing Factor: Regenerates from being blown in half a few times over the course of the battle.
  • Implacable Man: Takes multiple rounds of fire and battles to take down. And even then, it only dies from Piers's final attack and the base explosion.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Inverted, when HAOS first emerges from the cocoon, he's humongous. As he's damaged in battle and forced to chase Chris and Piers in smaller rooms and corridors, he emerges from its dessicated remains in a smaller form to keep on fighting.
  • Meaningful Name: "Chaos" in Serbian, signifying it as the final step in Neo-Umbrella's plan to plunge the world into complete chaos.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Of varying sizes, spread all over its grotesque body.
  • Sequential Boss: Has about five stages to him.

How well does it match the trope?
