What’s going on guys? I’m happy to say that this list is a long time coming. Resident Evil is one of my favorite video game franchises and with so many great games, naturally I would gravitate to some of the characters. This list is my top 10 favorite characters in the Resident Evil franchise.
HUNK is the code-name of a Special Agent of the Umbrella Security Service who was the leader of the Alpha Team under the employment of Umbrella. He is the ultimate soldier under Umbrella. He’s mysterious, he’s a survivor, he’s completely badass. If Umbrella has equivalent of Chris or Leon, it’s H.U.N.K.
9. Jack Krauser
Krauser is a former government military agent turned henchmen for Albert Wesker and later Osmund Saddler. A mercenary with a bad attitude, a talent for talking shit, and a wicked mutated arm that can easily cleave his opponents in two. Although a supporting protagonist in Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles he’s a secondary antagonist of Resident Evil 4.
8. Osmund Saddler
Saddler is the leader of the religious cult and paramilitary group known as the Los Illuminados. He’s the main antagonist of Resident Evil 4 and has one thing most of the villains don’t have and that’s personality. He’s powerful but he’s witty and charismatic, and one of the few characters who’s in total control of his Plagas.
7. Claire Redfield
Claire is as resourceful as her brother Chris Redfield, and has that same strength and leadership potential. She’s currently a member of the human rights organization, TerraSave. One of the few survivors of the Raccoon City Incident, she shows bravery in the face of danger and is a natural survivor.
6. Albert Wesker
Former leader of the S.T.A.R.S. unit in Raccoon City and one of Umbrella’s top researchers, Wesker is the central antagonist for much of the series. There are few characters who are as badass, as power hungry, as manipulative as Wesker. He’s the biggest douchebag of the series, having his hand in many of the events following the series from the mysterious “Organization” all the way to TRICELL, Inc.
5. Ada Wong
A mystery to everyone but herself, Ada is a private agent who thrives on the intrigue and treachery that is the corporate world. Ada is cunning and mysterious and always walking the fine line of being a good guy and bad guy, based on her own goals. Cold and calculating, she’s mostly known for her employment under the series’ villains but also for her relationship and aid of Leon S. Kennedy.
4. Sheva Alomar
Like Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, Sheva is an agent of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance as part of its West African branch. Developers wanted to partner Chris with someone as capable as his partner Jill and they succeeded. Sheva is beautiful and sexy who exudes a great deal of strength and skill. Is she Jill Valentine? No, but she has the strength, versatility, firearms experience, and fighting ability to hold her own.
3. Jill Valentine
A former member of the elite law enforcement unit in Raccoon City called the Special Tactics and Rescue Service who is one of the original survivors of the mansion incident. Special Operations Agent of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance and a co-founder of the BSAA. Smart, sexy, and highly resource, it’s no wonder why she’s one of the leading faces of strong female characters in video games.
2. Chris Redfield
A natural leader who’s strong and tough-as-nails, he’s a Special Operations Unit Captain of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, as well as a founding member, and the older brother of Claire Redfield. No one has biceps like Chris, which has him looking on par with the likes of Captain America or Superman. His partnership with Jill Valentine and rivalry with Albert Wesker has gone down in video game legend. Strong, capable, and determined, Chris definitely earned his spot on this list.
1. Leon S. Kennedy
There is only one contender who can truly rival Chris Redfield in terms of awesomeness and that’s Leon S. Kennedy. A very confident character who’s charming and highly skilled, he once was a R.P.D. rookie cop who survives the Raccoon City Incident to become a federal agent for the Division of Security Operations. Great with one liners and an expert marksman, Leon has gone into the mouth of hell several times and come out on top with style.
