"LEON IS AN IDEALISTIC ROOKIE COP. HE BURNS WITH THE NEED TO PROTECT AND SERVE, AND LIFE AS A CADET WAS AN EYE-OPENING EXPERIENCE. WHILE RECKLESS AND BRASH, LEON IS CERTAINLY NOT AS NAIVE AS HIS DEMEANOR WOULD SUGGEST. HE IS HIGHLY QUALIFIED FOR HIS NEW JOB WITH THE RACCOON POLICE."
Resident Evil 2 Nintendo 64 Manual, p.3
  • Leon's name can be a reference to the character of Jean Reno in the film The Professional. In the feature, Natalie Portman's character is called Mathilda, the same name as the special weapon used by Leon in Resident Evil 4.
  • Leon appears in the Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City house (which is based on Resident Evil 2 and 3) for Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 23.
  • Leon was planned to be a playable character in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom but was dropped for unknown reasons.
  • In the "non-canon" scenario in Ghost Survivors in Resident Evil 2 remake, Leon manages to arrive at the Mizoil Gas Station in time to rescue the sheriff Daniel Cortini of the eminent horde of zombies and the two head out towards Raccoon City.[1][2]
