T-A.L.O.S. is a boss character from the Resident Evil series of survival horror games. It first appears as one of the bosses in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.


T-A.L.O.S. stands for "Tyrant - Armored Lethal Organic System". It is the ultimate bio-organic weapon, created by the Umbrella Corporation. The Umbrella research team stationed at the Arklay Research Facility originally conceived of the T-A.L.O.S. as their answer to the European Nemesis. Before it could be completed, development was interrupted by the T-Virus outbreak caused by James Marcus. Realizing that the facility's days were numbered, Spencer ordered Vladimir to recover the T-A.L.O.S. prototype so that its research would not be wasted. This was done, and the prototype was safely brought back into Umbrella's hands before the facility was destroyed by Wesker.

After Raccoon City was destroyed, the Umbrella Corporation was forced underground and most of its activities were shut down. The T-A.L.O.S. project was moved to Umbrella's Russian branch. The T-A.L.O.S. was tested against a special forces unit, two armored vehicles, and an attack helicopter, making T-A.L.O.S. the ultimate B.O.W. The idea behind the T-A.L.O.S. Project is the creation of a highly advanced bio-weapon that could be effectively controlled, which relies on chip connections to brain cells, making it remotely controllable. T-A.L.O.S. is equipped with specialized combat firepower and armor. Even while armed with heavy weaponry, it has mobility unthinkable in a natural organism. It was ultimately defeated by Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, during a raid on a Russian Umbrella facility commanded by Vladimir.
