Who is Resident Evil’s Hunk? Well, we’re here to tell you who the badass is, what games he appears in, and offer a bit of an insight into his character. You see, he’s a bit of an enigma, yet many can’t get enough of the strong survivor. To be fair, he does go through hell, so much so his experience even rivals the ordeal of Claire and Leon.

Since Hunk is from Resident Evil 2, you might want to read our Resident Evil Ada, Resident Evil Claire, Resident Evil Leon, Resident Evil Sherry, and Resident Evil Mr X guides to learn more about the game’s other characters. Or, you could check out our Resident Evil virus guide to find out what he must fight against in his bid for survival.

Anyway, let’s take a look at Resident Evil’s Hunk.

Who is Resident Evil’s Hunk?

No, he doesn’t have that name because he’s tall, dark, and handsome. I mean, he might be, but he wears special task force clothes that hide how he looks, so we may never know. In all seriousness, we don’t know a great deal about this survival horror icon. We don’t even know his real name.

However, what we can tell you is that he works for Umbrella and thus qualifies as a villain in Resident Evil. Now you don’t care if he’s a looker, do you? The fact that he’s a bad boy is enough. In Resident Evil 2, Umbrella sends him to steal the g-virus from Dr Birkin, which results in the supposed death of the doctor.

Naturally, Birkin injects himself with the virus, becoming the monster known as ‘G’, who then kills the entirety of Alpha Team in the sewers, except for Hunk, who, against the odds, survives long enough and fights through many hordes, to call for an extraction. It’s his escape from the sewers, through the police station, to safety that you experience in The 4th Survivor in Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil Hunk’s personality.

Cold and determined. Those two words personify Hunk. He’s a man on a mission, literally, and stops at nothing to achieve his goal. Quite honestly, he doesn’t care who must die (unless given orders to bring someone in alive), and it’s easy to be collateral damage if you get in his way. He doesn’t even care if his comrades fall. It’s survival of the fittest, and Hunk is a survivor.
