What is The Tofu Survivor? - Apperance

Play as a Literal Tofu

Resident Evil 2 Tofu Survivor Mode Close Up

The Tofu Survivor is a parody of The 4th Survivor, but this time, you play as a huge chunk of Tofu with S.T.A.R.S. beret (which somehow speaks high-pitched Japanese in Osaka-accent).

Designed For Players Wanting More Challenge

Though a joke mission, the Tofu Survivor mode is one of the hardest missions in the game. You're only given a few combat knives, and a couple of herbs. As with the 4th Survivor, there are no item pick-ups as well. Knowing when to use the counter attack will be the key to completing this mode.

Beat The Challenge for Bragging Rights

The Tofu Survivor gives players another chance to show off their survival skills. Challenge yourself to get the best completion time!

From this point on, you will now be stalked by the Tyrant so always watch out. It will stagger when it hits you so you can make a quick escape after that. Now is a good time to heal up or use your Red + Blue Herb.

3. Take the right side path in the East Office

Taking this path will narrow your encounter to just one zombie. One will have its back turned on you which you can safely run from, but be careful of the one near the door as it may quickly turn and grab you.

The stairs in the Main Hall are now blocked and you have to circle around quite a bit more.

Let yourself be grabbed by the zombie at the door and use the knife. Run past the group of zombies onto the next area immediately.

16. Dealing with the Stairs Zombie

Tofu Survivor Guide

Ensure you have enough health at this point as you cannot use your knife to counter zombies blocking stairs.

21. Prepare for a lot of enemies

Several zombies, a G-Monster and couple of plant type zombies in the Courtyard. Save up your items for this part as this can be the most difficult section if you run out of items.

23. Exit towards the RPD Front Gate and beware of the Tyrant

Tofu Survivor Guide

If you linger too much in this area, the Titan will make your escape much more difficult and challenging.
