Tofu is a secret character from Resident Evil 2. He also appears in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles as an enemy in the secret mode.

Resident Evil 2Edit

Initially conceived and created by Capcom to test the game's collision detection[1], Tofu was given his own minigame, The Tofu Survivor, as a parody of HUNK's The Fourth Survivor. To unlock the Tofu scenario, you must complete all 6 scenarios with an A ranking.

Tofu goes through exactly the same environment that HUNK does, complete with HUNK's voice. Tofu is armed only with a knife and a few herbs, but he can also take more damage than human characters. Tofu will instead change color when he takes damage, going from white to blood red when on danger and dark pink when poisoned.

Whenever Tofu is attacked, he swears in the Kansai Japanese dialect, and when he is killed, he mutters "farewell" in Japanese. Ironically, things don't end up very well for Tofu, for HUNK is shown eating him aboard the chopper in the ending FMV.

Darkside ChroniclesEdit

Tofu appears briefly in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles "secret mode". It replaces zombies with Tofu as you fight from the R.P.D.'s courtyard to the crashed truck appearing at the beginning of Resident Evil 2. The player character is Claire Redfield armed only with a handgun.

Further NotesEdit

  • Tofu was supposed to be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 but did not make the cut.
  • Tofu can be used in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis with a game enhancer.
  • Zombies and Zombie Dogs are seen chasing down Tofu 'zombies' during the secret mode in Darkside Chronicles.
