Who do you think is a better protagonist? i think Leon is better because he is still looks like a human, unlike Chris who's muscles are always on the verge of busting out of his shirt that is way to small, but hey that's just my opinion

I don't even want to have to debate this. Chris for sure. He beat Wesker across the face with a pipe and that takes mad balls. =D

I've always loved Leon so he would be my choice...not to mention the only RE games I've enjoyed both starred him.

#4 Posted by Vyse_Legends (417 posts) -

Leon because he knows The Merchant.:P

#5 Posted by dofuss (13 posts) -

Chris win hands down for me.  Partly because he was in the original (and for me best) Res Evil.  And partly because I am sure Leon is being played, no one ever seems to mention the US President, just the President.

leon has emo hair on his side, chris does not have emo hair. i have not played a game with chris.

#7 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

Leon, hands down. Chris is too default to be a good protagonist.

#8 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

Leon is better, Chris is uninteresting and i agree with you, his body is ridiculous.

#9 Posted by Tom_H (53 posts) -

Chris is better because the thing that he has with Wesker is the best part of the entire RE story.

#10 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

Chris is small time.

#11 Posted by BoG (5192 posts) -

Chris. I actually prefer Leon, but if the two were really, I'd want to be better freinds with Chris and convince him to set me up with his sister, Claire.

#12 Posted by insanegamer (612 posts) -

i just like chris way better. always have and i hope to in the future.

#13 Posted by carlthenimrod (1597 posts) -

I like Leon more but in a fight Chris would win. Looks like he has been juicing for the past number of years. I wonder if he plays baseball...

#14 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Definitely Leon. Like Kush said, the two games he was in were the ones I enjoyed the most.

Yeah, Leon seems to always be in the good RE games, but i am REALLY hoping that i enjoy Resident Evil 5.

Leon, but Chris is also great.

#17 Posted by MackDaddicus (57 posts) -

Chris easily, did you see how many guns he showed up with in Code Veronica?

#18 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

Seeing as my Resident Evil experience stems only from 4 and 5 and while Chris' boulder punching exploits did give me some possibly unintentional laughs, I'd have to go with Leon on this one.

#19 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

Dude, Leon. Chris is fine and all, but Leon. Anyone that can put up with "LEON! HELP!" and "What're ya buying?" deserves your respect. 

#20 Posted by Ubiquitous (571 posts) -

Chris is obviously superior.

Both of them are great characters but, I would have to go with Leon.     Reason?  RE4.  That's all I have to say.

#22 Posted by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -
Chris Redfield
1.  He is a member of the NRA
2.  Hes so manly he cant unlock stuff or mix herbs (he didnt go to college like Jill or rebecca)
3. He saves Rebeca
4. He lands on the Island in Code Veronica totally strapped for battle with a tank and harrier jet
5. Wesker shadow punches him a bunch of times and he continues to live
6. In the First Resident Evil Chris gets 2 less item slots than Jill 
 
Also this
 


His blood type is O
#23 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2494 posts) -

I'll go with Chris because he was voiced & mocap'd by Reuben Langdon in RE5.

I definitely believe that Leon S. Kennedy is the greatest character in the  resident evil series he was a rookie cop already kicking zombie A$$ he also is really smart at what he does he doesn't just run around punching rocks he uses his head and he's never scared of doing the right thing I mean think about it if you were on an island to save a little girl and there was a way you could leave but with out her would you not leave guess what he didn't he stayed to complete his mission and he has fought and defeated the biggest and most zombies out there and the only thing i can ask for more is that he is in re6 Leon is also way cooler and more acrobatic along with skilled in many fighting styles such as knife fighting and kicking

Where the hell are they here?! lol.

RE1 has had some of the most memorable dialogue and scenes in my gaming history. Especially the live action parts. But aside from that, the whole thing with Wesker (the cool guy) is awesome, and Jill can turn into Zero Suit Samus. And the thing Chris did with the flashbangs in the remake of RE 1 was pretty badass. If anything the fact that he's hit his mid 30's and bulked up a bit makes him even more badass compared to that wuss Leon who was all hesitant about shooting zombies and trying to reason with them in the opening cinematic.. Idiot.
And chris starts off with a knife. He doesn't even get a gun or anything. Also Chris has, at this point, the best graphics. There is no better rendered playable videogame character as of yet than Chris Redfield.
 
Also "I hope this isn't chris's blood"

#28 Posted by copycatzen (816 posts) -

Leon, cause kicking Krauser's ass in RE4 was a lot harder than kicking Wesker's ass in RE5. Period again
#29 Posted by Godwind (2597 posts) -

This dude. It is sooooo kick ass.

 Chris did not kill Wesker. when Sheva and Chris met Wesker they both ran, afterwards Jill told him his weakness, then Sheva and Chris injected him (one of them held him down) then Sheva stalled him on the plane, and it Was in fact Sheva who stabbed Wesker so many times in the heart while chris held him down. Leading to both Sheva and Chris killing Wesker together.chris sheva jill and josh killed wesker...so chris only assisted in killing wesker...
 
  

#31 Posted by livinsoul (3 posts) -

leon took down a giant with his knife and chris had to use the machine gun of a hummer to do the same. i think leon is the top badass character of resident evil
i also noticed how ppl say dat Chris>Leon,but they cant even tell why except simple reasons like:
1.muscles - (which Leon proved that he can fight things that has 100x more muscles than Chris has)
2.has more training & experience - (but leon has SHOWN us equal or better)
3.Wesker - (which is totally embarrassing mentioning how Chris managed the situation since CVX and RE5)

Leon had three women he could've fucked throughout the games: 
 
Ashley - Hot jailbait, that WANTED to fuck his brains out. 
Claire - Redhead who was just as spicy as she looks. 
Ada - Yellow fever bitches. 
 
Leon doesn't fuck any of them.  He is a homosexual or is a pussy.  Chris is a real man.

#37 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -

Leon, probably. 
 
I like Chris a lot, too. He is badass in the original and an absolute tank in 5.

#38 Posted by Chop (1999 posts) -

pfft screw those two...Josh dominates them both. He fucking choke slams enemies!
 
"I AM A LEGEND!"

#39 Posted by Yummylee (22274 posts) -

Barry Burton is the true hero amongst all this. He is the only Resident left in Evil, I say! Everyone else has been too warped into ninja's and disfigured mutants.

I'm pretty sure Leon would go for Ada, if he could get her to not disappear after 20 seconds.

chris had jill, sheva, and rebecca to not fuck, so they're tied i suppose.

I'll bet he totally had a foursome with Josh, Jill and Sheva on that helicopter during the ending. 
 
    
    Just look at all of those cheeky grins they give each other!
#43 Edited by Meowshi (2911 posts) -

I liked Leon because he realized he was in a ridiculous game.  He shouted one-liners, did ridiculous shit, and never dropped into "this is serious business mode".   
 
The ending credits to RE4?  Perfect. 
 
Leon shouting, "MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKE!", for some guy he hardly even knew?  Perfect. 
 
"Got gum."  Perfect. 
 
"Your right hand comes off?"  Perfect.   
  
His obvious homosexual attraction to Luis Sera?  Perfect. 

God I love that game.  What were we talking about again?

Hunnigan, was like a spicier version of Sarah Palin.

Leon seems like a normal dude but mother truckin' Chris can punch a boulder to death.

Leon looks less generic.

A normal dude who can defy the laws of reality. 
 
  
   
I mean punching a boulder is insane, but at least that's somewhat plausible, since it's executed by just pushing and punching... that (^) on the other hand is like a scene from the Matrix
#49 Posted by Undeadpool (4986 posts) -

Leon is a better character. Or I should say Leon is a character. Chris is a roid-freak archetype.

Leon S. Kennedy.
