"Tyrant" is a figurine manufactured by Palisades as part of their third series of Resident Evil figures.[1] It is based on the Tyrant (T-002 Model) boss from Resident Evil.

Secure File

As with the other Palisades Resident Evil products, the back of the box has a "secure file" detailing the character. These blurbs are not part of Capcom's canon and may be speculative or take information from other sources such as the WildStorm comics or the S.D. Perry novels.

Subject: Tyrant

Weapons: None

Special Attacks: Slashing Overhead Claw Attack!

Height: Over 10'

Weight: Unknown

Age: Unknown

Description:The original B.O.W Tyrant was constructed as part of our super soldier program using the T-Virus to mutate human tissue. Abandoned because of the rarity of viable test subjects, the Tyrant Program was officially replaced by the Nemesis Project, perfected Umbrella France, our sister company in Europe. Awakened prematurely, this weapon was destroyed by Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in our mansion laboratory outside of Raccoon City.

Even premature, this B.O.W. packs quite a punch. Be prepared to move quickly when this behemoth approaches, because despite its mammoth size it has the ability to move extremely fast and will bring its claws down with enough force to crush a tank!


This figure is, to put it simply, massive. Standing in at over 10.5 Inches in height, this figure easily towers over most other Palisades figures, even many of the monsters are smaller than it, including Mr. X which only stands about as tall as this figure's chest. This figure features quite a bit of articulation and is able to successfully strike a variety of poses.  Articulation for this figure includes rotating hips and wrists,  shoulders, chest, and a head with ball joint articulation which allows for a variety of positions, and elbows, ankles, and knees with bending articulation. 

The head is an interesting piece of the figure because the arteries for the heart are connected to it via a very flexible but not cheaply made plastic. The artery cords may be pulled out slightly further to move the head more. The arteries will move with the head when it is moved.

Further Notes

  • This figure was so massive that Palisades deemed it too expensive to include any accessories.
  • The paint detailing is so well done that a line is located on the Tyrant's crotch where it was probably castrated, showing a scar where the stiches were.
