Resident Evil 2 Mod Turns Mr. X into Thomas the Tank Engine
Everyone who has played Resident Evil 2 knows Mr. X, a.k.a Tyrant. He is one of the most frightening characters we have seen in games recently which can be attributed to his determination to destroy. Now picture this thwarting figure as Thomas the Tank Engine. Thanks to a few modders, this picture is now a reality. You can live the nightmare!
Thanks to a Tweet from user @Nitomatta, we can see the mod in action. As you can see from the video, the mod works similarly to the “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” mod that was making the rounds not too long ago. Which is a fun coincidence since the audio queue of the Thomas & Friends theme was done by the very same person who did the DMX mod, DJPop. As for the Thomas model, that was done by ZombieAli.
If you really want to get the most out of the Thomas mod, you can use the aforementioned DMX audio mod with the Thomas model for a combination that is both horrifying and hilarious.
The Thomas model was made by ZombieAli and the audio modification is by the same person that did the X Gon Give it To Ya mod. (DJPop)
And yes, the DMX mod works just as well here. pic.twitter.com/5yQaPOfUd2

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Thomas haunt the video games we know and love. Modders also turned dragons in Skyrim into the famous train engine, as well as deathclaws in Fallout 4. Personally, I’m waiting for the Thomas mod that puts the tank engine into Monster Hunter: World. Oh wait, that already happened and it’s ridiculous.
As for Mr. X, we here at DualShockers are big fans of this sharply dressed tyrant. We aren’t the only ones either. Recently, Resident Evil 2 remake’s Director, Kazunori Kadoi, is surprised at how popular Mr. X has become.
Resident Evil 2 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to know what we thought of the game, you can check out our review.
