Who is Resident Evil 2’s Mr X?

Mr X is a bioweapon known as T-00 (a Tyrant) that both Leon and Claire encounter as they explore the Racoon City Police Station, though luckily for the younger Redfield sibling, this is the only place she encounters the monster. Well, we say lucky – she just ends up having to deal with a different kind of evil, but that’s a story for another time.

As for the rookie cop, not only does he encounter Mr X in the station, but the Tyrant also follows him deep below ground into the secret Umbrella research facility, where Leon must ultimately destroy the bioweapon once and for all. In essence, Mr X stalks the protagonists, doing all he can to put an end to their existence.

What is Resident Evil 2 Mr X’s personality?

Okay, so saying Mr X has a personality is a bit of a stretch. This hulking mass of evil doesn’t speak, but we imagine it’s a loyal minion to its creator, given it just won’t stop chasing Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Besides that, one look at the creature shows just how murderous and intimidating it is.
