Stage 1

Birkin 1

As this form does not possess any natural weapons, G instead makes use of his superhuman strength to tear a pipe from a guardrail to swing about and attack with. The monster can swing the pipe in a powerful two-swing attack, or raise it and bring the pipe crashing down with enough force to kill a character in one hit.

In Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, this stage's repertoire is expanded. Now G can throw his pipe, or swing it multiple times in rapid succession. The creature is also more clever; when Claire and Leon jump on top of a structure, rather than trying to climb to reach them, G merely smashes their platform, shaking it and throwing off their aim, before striking one of them with the tip. Lastly, after throwing its pipe, it will pick up a character and strangle them to death. If stopped, G will drop them off the side of the bridge before repeatedly swinging at them.

Stage 2

Birkin 2

The creature's attacks include:

  1. A double swipe where it hook swings at you then backhands;
  2. A single hook swipe;
  3. If the character stands still it will stab straight and/or;
  4. If the character stands still it will hook punch with its left hand.
  5. If the character is on low health, G2 William Birkin will perform a gut stab incredibly similar to that of the Tyrant (T-002 Model) from the previous game. As a matter of fact, the second stage has often been compared to a Tyrant.

Stage 3

Birkin 3

In Resident Evil 2, this stage has similar attacks to its previous stage. Mostly it attacks through single swipes with its massive upper arms, and jumps great distances. Also, if it walks towards its victims with its arms spread, it will attack with a powerful 4-hit combo. Its two death scenes involve it impaling the victim with its lower arms before shredding them with its upper arms, or decapitating them.

In Darkside Chronicles, the monster will perform powerful jumping slashes and is very acrobatic. It will even perform a roundhouse kick, as well as a swipe with two arms (i.e. both right arms.)

Stage 4

This stage moves around with an odd gait, often compared to a dog or wolf. It jumps about from pillar-top to pillar-top, and often jumps down in front of a character. It will either swipe at them with a small forearm, or more dangerously, it will grab them and gnaw them with its massive fangs. In some endings, this is the final boss.

In Darkside Chronicles, this stage is slightly revised. Now it can climb walls and is much, much larger than it was before. The many fangs in its maw now twitch and it expels acidic slime from its mouth. The stage mostly employs pouncing from a great height onto Leon and Claire, occasionally destroying sections of the walkway. The creature eventually grabs one of them in order to devour the victim head-first, but fails. Eventually, one of its pounces fractures the walkway, causing the survivors to shoot at it while it dangles. Eventually, it slaps the catwalk and knocks them down to its level, allowing it to attack with acidic vomit and slashing with its massive talons. Eventually, it falls off the catwalk and vanishes from sight.

Stage 5

1070732-g type mutation 5

This final form attacks using its massive tentacles and swiping through the train car in an attempt to push a character into his mouth. The creature is also pulling itself into the train, giving this fight a time limit: if the monster isn't killed after a certain time has passed, it will catch and devour Leon or Claire.However, if Leon or Claire is out of ammo/does not have any weapons and the monster comes close to them,the monster will die on its own.

In Darkside Chronicles, this form is more powerful, and much more aggressive. It fights by hurling wreckage of the train car at the characters, as well as using claw-tipped tentacles to slash at the players. The monster also has two incredibly bizarre attacks: it can vomit up recently consumed zombies to fight the characters, and eject its own mouth, extending it to about ten feet before striking the players.
