There are 20 Mr. Charlie bobblehead statues to collect in the Resident Evil 3 demo. These figures are located in some tough to spot places. Even though the RE3 demo is only around 30 minutes, it could take hours to find them on your own. Luckily, we’ve got (almost) every Mr. Charlie statue location in the RE3 demo right here.
Some of the Mr. Charlie bobbleheads require you to take specific actions before they unlock. We’ve stuck those at the end of this list as they’ll likely be the hardest ones for you to find. We finally got all 20 statues after two days of searching, so check out the locations below and save yourself some pain.
Resident Evil 3 demo Mr. Charlie bobblehead statue locations
As stated above, there are 20 Mr. Charlie bobbleheads scattered throughout the RE3 demo. To collect them you have to shoot them or stab them with your knife. Once you’ve broken them, they won’t appear in subsequent playthroughs. Luckily, the demo keeps track of how many you’ve got, and you can see your total in the Results page found on the main menu.
If you just need a hint on how to find the Resident Evil 3 demo Mr. Charlie statue locations, here’s a brief list to point you in the right direction:
- In front of the subway train.
- On a table at the top of the subway stairs.
- In an ambulance near the first zombie.
- On a cop car behind a gate with three zombies nearby.
- Underneath some scaffolding near across from Toy Uncle.
- By the microwave in Moon’s Donuts.
- On a power box on top of a roof.
- Hidden among some boxes in a storeroom.
- On the edge of an elevated railroad track.
- On the roof of Moon’s Donuts.
- On a counter in the supermarket.
- Between two vents in an alley by a dead Umbrella soldier.
- On a shelf in the pharmacy.
- In the Subway Office in a cabinet.
- Just around the corner from the fire hydrant (be careful with this one or you’ll accidentally end the demo).
- In a cop car near Toy Uncle (you’ll have to figure out how to coax the zombie into opening the door).
- In a cop car outside Moon’s Donuts, near the Subway Office (the zombie in this car is bashful as well).
- Shoot a zombie by the cop car where you find #16 and return to the pharmacy.
- Stare at the Mr. Charlie poster in Toy Uncle, then look on the roof of Moon’s Donuts.
- Get two high-grade gunpowders, make magnum ammo, keep it in your inventory, go back to the start, then go to the roof where #7 is and you’ll see it by an orange lift.
If you’re still stumped, we go into detail on each figure (with maps) below.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #1
The first Mr. Charlie can be found near where you start the demo. Go out the doorway closest to the north end of the subway car and look at the platform across the track. You’ll be able to spot the Mr. Charlie bobblehead chilling on the ground.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #2
This Mr. Charlie is maybe the easiest to find in the whole RE3 demo. Once you ascend the stairs to the ground floor of the subway station, you’ll find this statue on the desk near the UBCS file.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #3
Once you leave the subway station and see your first zombie, take him out and look towards the south part of the street. You should see an ambulance with some gurneys nearby. In the back of the ambulance is Mr. Charlie #3.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #4
At the north part of the same street you find Mr. Charlie #3 at, you’ll see three zombies banging on a gate with fire behind them. Behind these zombies, on the hood of a police car, is the next bobblehead.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #5
To find this Mr. Charlie, descend the steps towards Moon’s Donuts, and once you’re at the bottom, turn around. Underneath the scaffolding on the left is statue #5.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #6
This bobblehead can be found by the microwave behind the counter in the southwest corner of Moon’s Donuts. He’s tucked in there, but if you go to the west door and turn until you face the south wall, you can’t miss him.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #7
Northeast of the east door of Moon’s Donuts, there’s a staircase that takes you to a catwalk leading around the downtown area. To get statue #7, go up the stairs and head east. In this rooftop area, stick to the left, and you’ll find a Mr. Charlie bobblehead on top of a power unit.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #8
Take the same stairs mentioned in the last entry, but go west instead. You’ll find yourself in a storeroom full of boxes and a safe. Here, you’ll find a Mr. Charlie tucked on the top shelf among some boxes.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #9
Once you exit the storeroom via the south door, you’ll head through a hall with a door facing east, leading to another catwalk. If you stand right where the door opens onto the grating and look up at the railroad tracks, you’ll see Mr. Charlie #9.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #10
Continue standing exactly where you were when you shot Mr. Charlie #9 and look south towards Moon’s Donuts. On the roof, you’ll see another bobblehead to cap.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #11
Back on the street you found Mr Charlie #3 and #4, there’s a supermarket locked by a chain. By this point, you should have found the bolt cutters that will allow you to gain entry (if not, they’re in the save room in Moon’s Donuts). Cut the chain and head inside. Look north, and you should see Mr. Charlie #11 sitting on a counter.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #12
West of the western door of Moon’s Donuts, you’ll find an alley blocked by a gate locked with a chain. Use the bolt cutters to open it. Inside, after you take down the zombies, you’ll find another Mr. Charlie bobblehead tucked between to vents near the case containing shotgun shells.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #13
This bobblehead is waiting for you in the pharmacy. Scan along the western wall, and you’ll find him nestled on a shelf.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #14
You’ll find yet another bobblehead in the Subway Office. In the room where you find the shotgun, you’ll find a Mr. Charlie on a shelf in a low cabinet on the north wall.
Note: All the above Mr. Charlie bobbleheads can be obtained at any time in the demo. These next three require you to get the Fire Hose from the Subway Office and trigger the fight with Nemesis.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #15
To snag this elusive bobblehead, you must use the Fire Hose on the hydrant in the alley north of Uncle Toys. Once you do that, inch your way to where you can see around the corner ahead. Don’t go too fast or too far, or you’ll trigger the end of the demo. Around the corner, on top of a vent by the door, is another Mr. Charlie.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #16 and #17
These last two Mr. Charlies are an absolute pain to get. They’re located in two cop cars. One car is near the gate leading from the alley coming from the subway station, and there’s one to the southwest of the western door of Moon’s Donuts. These cars are closed when you first past them, and you need to trigger the zombie inside to open the door and flop out.
I’m not entirely sure what the exact trigger is to get these cars to open. I’ve only got one of the two, the one near the gate leading back to the subway station, to open. As of right now any of these could be the possible trigger:
- Knock Nemesis down x number of times during the fight.
- Play the demo for x amount of time.
- Have Nemesis chasing you for x amount of time.
- Some players reported that getting a number of perfect dodges caused the doors to pop open without even spawning Nemesis.
I did notice that I could without fail get the car door near the gate to the subway station to activate by knocking Nemesis down 3-4 times. However, after hours of trying, I still haven’t gotten the cop car west of Moon’s Donuts to open. I know that’s where another Mr. Charlie is because I saw it happen for a streamer, but they were as confused about the process as I am.
Update: It seems like the zombie in the cop car near the gate leading back to the subway requires you to down Nemesis three times to open. The cop car west of Moon’s Donuts seems to require you to get 25 Perfect Dodges throughout the demo (which means you do not need to summon Nemesis for this one). I’ll continue testing to confirm these.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #18
The info for Mr. Charlie #18 comes from Dead Jester (@DJCLE84) on Twitter. This bobblehead requires you to pull off a specific sequence to spawn:
- Put out the fire with the Fire Hose.
- Head to the police car where you find Mr. Charlie #16.
- Kill the out-of-bounds zombie that has spawned around the wrecked cars.
- Return to the pharmacy.
- Near the Aquacure sign, a zombie has reanimated, where they were laying is now Mr. Charlie #18.
Following the above steps should get this statue to spawn without fail.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #19
Mr. Charlie #19 is a snap to get as long as you know what you have to do. Head to the Uncle Toy store and stare at the Mr. Charlie poster through the window for about 10 seconds. If you waited long enough, you’ll see that this statue has spawned on the roof of Moon’s Donuts.
Mr. Charlie bobblehead location #20
The convoluted scheme for the final bobblehead is upon us and it’s one the roof from the seventh bobblehead up the staircase to the right of Moon’s Donuts and across the way from Jim’s Crabs. But first, you’ll need two high-grade gunpowders, which you can find on a shelf in the locked supermarket across the street from the toy store and on a shelf in the pharmacy a little later on (maps below). You’ll need the bolt cutters from the back room behind the kitchen in Moon’s Donuts to get in.
Mix the high-grade gunpowders to create magnum ammo and be sure to keep in your inventory. Go back to the start of the demo and Mikhail will talk about Carlos. After that remark, go back to the aforementioned roof and there will be a zombie in a yellow vest next to an orange lift. The bobblehead will be right by it hidden in the darkness. Thanks to Jesusness, Roflomgabbq, Yellooooooow and StevivorAU on Reddit for helping with this obscure bobblehead.
In case you need a bit more help, here’s the high-grade gunpowder from the supermarket.
