Tofu is a secret joke character from the Resident Evil series. As the name suggest, it is a block of coagulated soy milk. It first appears in Resident Evil 2.

Description[edit | edit source]

"The 4th Survivor", the unlockable mini-game that puts the player in the role of the mysterious masked HUNK, apparently was too easy for some Japanese gamers. If the player is able to unlock "The Tofu Survivor", he/she must be prepared for something considered by most to be quite impossible to complete.

The first thing the player will notice upon beginning one of the most difficult mini-games in Resident Evil history is that the character is nothing more than a piece of tofu.

The second thing the player will notice is that (unlike the picture to the right) Tofu is only armed with an army knife, making the mission extremely difficult and challenging.

Tofu starts the game solid white, and as it begins to take damage, it turns a dark red.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

Tofu returned in 2009's Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, with many Tofus replacing the usual zombies in an unlockable "secret mode" with Claire Redfield as the player character.

Tofu appeared again in Dead Rising 3's downloadable content.
