Instant Hero (インスタントヒーロー Insutanto hīrō ) is the ninth chapter in the Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire manga series. It was first published in Issue #29 of the Weekly Shōnen Champion Extra's 2012 series, but was later on re-published in the second tankōbon volume on October 5.
PlotSeeing a Zombie tearing into Ray Hsu's neck, Dr. Doug Wright swings his axe at the attacker, followed by a whack from Tahir Kapoo's mallet. The lights go back on, allowing the group to properly see what is going on. Hsu lays dying, beyond help, with his final acts being to hold out his hand in the air, thinking Mother Gracia is standing in front of him. Kapoor is angered at his friend's death, and delivers a strike with his mallet so powerful it destroys the Zombie's head entirely as he makes a charge for Bindi Bergara.
There should be only one more Zombie workman to deal with. While the stand over Hsu's body, the hooded woman from before appears behind Bergara. Both women disappear, with Bergara screaming out. The three men leave Hsu behind to look for Bergara, but the final Zombie workman appears and pulls Dr. Wright to the floor. Kapoor takes on the Zombie, leaving Ricky Tozawa on his own.
Tozawa makes his search for Bergara, and while he cannot find her he finds her crossbow. Soon, he is confronted by the handless workman who warned them of the hooded woman - he has returned as a Zombie. With his life on the line, Tozawa grabs the crossbow and fired. Meanwhile, Kapoor finishes the other Zombie workman, but finds that Hsu has now come back as a Zombie.
