Leon Scott Kennedy is one of the main protagonists of the Resident Evil series, and he is also a playable character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. His rival is Alex Mercer , a shapeshifter from the now dead IP [PROTOTYPE] series. Leon is the first known character to come with an Assist character via the circle button.



Survivor of an outbreak, he now hunts down the corporation responsible as well any Bio-terrorists who seek to replicate more outbreaks.

Leon S. Kennedy is given an assignment from his superiors. A claimed terrorist attacking some soldiers, it is widely believed that this person is part of a new virus as his strength is shown to be above the normal. Leon then leaves to seek this "Zeus" out as Chris Redfield (voiced by Roger Craig Smith) joins in his search.


Name: Alex Mercer

Alex Mercer


Connection: Both [PROTOTYPE] and Resident Evil have a theme focused on zombies originating from bio-warfare/bio-terrorism, so instead of coming back from the dead through magical means, they are revived through a special chemical.



Kennedy's gameplay style is sort of an amalgam between Nathan Drake, Isaac Clarke, and Colonel Radec where most of the special weapons are done by the Triangle and Circle buttons leaving the Square button to function with short range and melee. He has access to mostly modern weapons such as the pistol equiped with a laser pointer.

New to the series, by utilizing the Btn circle button Leon or Chris call each other in to do one of their signature moves and then leave. The person assisting can be interrupted and be used as a punching bag for foes to gain AP.



Leon is the ranged fighter between him and Chris. He focuses on keeping his distance and stunning his foes leaving up openings for him to get in close to do a few melee attacks then focuses on gaining distance once again.
