Resident Evil 7: Is Leon Kennedy in the Game?

Surprises around every darkened corner.



Chances are if you are a fan of the Resident Evil series, you might know of certain character by the name of Leon Kennedy. He first appeared in Resident Evil 2 as one of two playable protagonists, and since then has appeared in two other entries in the series including being the sole protagonist in Resident Evil 4 and one of six lead heroes in Resident Evil 6. Leon Kennedy was also featured as a playable character in the Game Boy spin-off game Resident Evil: Gaiden, and stars in the full-length film Resident Evil: Degeneration. But is he in Resident Evil 7?

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is the latest entry in the series, and many players are wondering whether Leon will make an appearance, or even be mentioned in any files collected throughout the game. As it turns out, Leon Kennedy is not featured in Resident Evil 7, without a single trace of him to be found in any file you gather during a play-through. However, another past Resident Evil character does make an appearance during Biohazard, so hard-core fans can still have that throwback. For those who would like to know which past Resident Evil character makes a surprise appearance, check out this story breakdown. But be warned, while it features no Leon Kennedy, it is filled with spoilers.
