The Tyrant is a scary guy. Even calling him Mr. X doesn’t reduce the spine-tingling fear that players feel when the hulking mutant turns a corner into their path. A new mod has provided some reprieve for scaredy-cats everywhere. Mr. X in a thong. We didn’t know we needed it but now the Resident Evil 2 Beachboy X mod has provided us with an endless opportunity silly screenshots and memes. Throughout the game, the imposing presence of Mr. X leaves players constantly on the edge but, in this Mr. X mod, he looks ready to make a fashion statement and scare you in a whole new way.
According to PC Gamer, the Resident Evil 2 Beachboy X mod gives the strapping Tyrant a set of shades, some flip flops, and a thong (complete with an interestingly positioned Umbrella logo). The Beachboy X mod can be downloaded here.
The modding community hasn’t stopped there, however. If a near-naked tyrant just looking to catch some rays isn’t enough, another mod adds the classic DMX song “X Gon’ Give it to Ya”. The tune gives Mr. X’s impending approach a rather different vibe. If you want a glimpse at Mr. X’s cheeky transformation, you can watch YouTuber Residence of Evil play the mod below:

Aside from Mr. X’s shenanigans, the Resident Evil 2 Remake gained rave reviews for its updated take on Capcom’s 1998 title.
