Do you remember how Mr. X and William Birkin tormented players? With the Resident Evil 2 Remake, we once again meet the T-Virus and G-Virus, these two very annoying bosses?
In Resident Evil 2 Remake, we saw the appearance of the first two bosses as a Tyrant with the alias Mr.X. The other is Dr. William Birkin turned into a monster after injecting the virus himself.
In the original Resident Evil 2, these monsters are mutated products from T-Virus and G-Virus, with different characteristics and strengths. Still, gamers often do not pay much attention to the difference between them.
If only included in the Resident Evil 2 Remake, T-Virus is the main cause of the disaster in Raccoon City, turning more than 100 thousand people here into Zombie. The game also mentioned this case in the post wrote. We need to discuss the power between the two main bosses in the game, namely Mr. X and William Birkin, and the difference between T-Virus and G-Virus.
First, let’s talk about Mr.X. If calculated according to the original storyline that was re-deployed by the Resident Evil 2 Remake, Mr.X is a Tyrant with the number T-103 – a manufactured product. A series of cloned methods from the first Tyrant version of Umbrella (T-102). The structure of T-103 is no different from T-102. Its identity is like a man with tall stature (about 2.5 meters), with mutated muscles that can turn into nails: swipe and big heart located on the right.
T-103 was created to guard, collect, or destroy the targets specified by Umbrella, its most significant improvement with the main form is the appearance and intelligence. In Resident Evil 2 Remake, we also see that Mr.X, at first glance, looks no different from a human, with a thick cloak over his head that hides the mutant body inside. Moreover, Mr.X’s hand is also Not as claw as the original. Thanks to this point that it could distract the prey, Leon or Claire himself first encountered Mr.X, extremely surprised.
Mr.X’s intelligence is not very high. It can only act on a programmed command such as reclaiming a particular object or destroying designated living creatures. To be clear, Mr.X is quite “stupid” compared to his brother Nemesis in Resident Evil 3. Another feature is that if attacked hard enough, T-103 will automatically mutate to the old shape. With long claws on both hands, along the bulging right chest is its second heart.
Due to being developed from T-Virus, Mr.X still possesses features such as strong cell resilience, tremendous strength, and can mutate or absorb other individuals to mutate. A Tyrant like Mr. X is almost invincible to small individuals like Leon or Claire. We see that both the original and the Resident Evil 2 Remake must run with flags every time they encounter this monster.
William Birkin – or the same monster created when the doctor injected G-Virus into his body was completely different. According to the Resident Evil 2 Remake timeline, this is also the first time the G-Virus has appeared, including why Raccoon City became infected due to Umbrella sending people to steal G Bir’s virus from William Birkin. He was dying of injecting G-Virus himself, then accidentally spilled a portion of T-Virus into the city sewer. Everything was known after that.
The G-Virus, whose full name is the Golgotha virus, was discovered by William Birkin during the T-Virus research. Many fans also call it God-Virus in the Resident Evil series, partly because of the extremely hegemony characteristic far different from the T-Virus. The most significant difference between the two viruses lies in the ability to reproduce. Suppose the T-Virus only produces dead tissue and provides just enough energy for the host to exist. In that case, the G-Virus can regenerate revive the cell to bring the host back to life, genuinely close to the “immortal” threshold that humans dream of.
Another thing is that the G-Virus is inherently an independent organism. When transplanted directly, it will slowly grow and “eat” all of the host’s body to grow. In Resident Evil 2 Remake, we can see the eye on William Birkin’s shoulder (now dead), one of the G-Virus brains.
G-Virus can mutate itself many times to T-Virus. In the original, William Birkin changed shape five times to get horror without external forces. The strength, endurance, and reflexes of an organism infected with G-Virus are also at an absolute level unless it is a heavy weapon that blows the whole body, otherwise do not attempt to kill it.
G-Virus’s weakness is that it is not as infectious as T-Virus (through blood, bites, or open wounds). Only organisms with the same genetic structure can transmit G-Virus to each other. G-Virus itself can spawn tentacles like leeches to find new hosts, but an infected person without the same genetic structure will be destroyed immediately. Thanks to the fact that a self-mutant independent organism, G-Virus can grow much stronger than T-Virus in the field of biochemical weapons (Tyrants have to implant chips or other support). to help them get their order).
In theory, the G-Virus is much stronger than the T-Virus. Unfortunately, many possibilities in this Resident Evil 2 Remake we will not verify because running away from these two monsters is enough. Dead Resident Evil 2 Remake will be released on January 25, 2019, on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One systems.
