The sight of cosplayers in Japan is nothing unusual, but if we ran into these ghoulish fellows on the streets of Tokyo we’d certainly double-take.

Dressed as the fiendish biologically-engineered “Tyrant” giants from the Biohazard (Resident Evil in the west) games, these three enormous men wandered through Akihabara, where they were met with comments varying from “creepy as hell” to “too cute!” as they showed a softer side than we’re used to seeing in the games and spin-off movies…

The Tyrant character has appeared multiple times in the Biohazard games, each time a little different, supposedly as the result of fictional bio-weapon creators Umbrella Corporation’s experiments and upgrades. They’re big, scary and damn-near impossible to kill.

The appearance of the “T-103″ type Tyrants in Akihabara late last week, though, led to a number of people altering their perception of the killer bio-weapons as they witnessed them going about their day like everyday Tokyo-ites, tweeting rather than ripping off heads or closing throats.

Here’s how most people have seen Tryants up until now…

And here’s how they looked in Akihabara last week…

Twitter users were excited to spot the three giants going about town and uploaded shot after shot, tweeting their location and commenting along the lines of “those monsters from Biohazard are wandering around town!” and “These guys are so cute!”

Not, perhaps, the response a dedicated killing machine is used to hearing…

▼Stopping by McDonald’s (perhaps to see the french-fry feast?)…

Someone get this bio-weapon some reading glasses…

▼See that, kids? Even Tyrants obey the rules when crossing the street…

They even buy their own train tickets

Waiting patiently for a train…

Haven’t we seen these guys drumming on trash-cans somewhere?

Although no doubt venturing outdoors to raise the profile of Biohazard creator Capcom’s scary new animated movie Biohazard Damnation, the three cosplayers weren’t quite as menacing as the game’s manhunting bio-weapon, and even stopped by a few businesses to help out in the name of promotion.

▼”Pardon me, I have a three o’clock appointment…”

▼Japan- home to many equal opportunities employers

▼Thankfully, they found at least one target, so the day wasn’t a total waste.

Oh, Tyrants, you guys crack me up. Maybe next we’ll see zombies cooking vegetables in the name of healthy eating…

While it’s not exactly everyone’s favourite chapter from the long-running videogame series, we’ll leave you with a clip that shows Biohazard at its cheesy, gruesome best. Here we see two of the game’s heroes come face to face with the first Tyrant ever created. Be sure that not every Tyrant you’ll ever meet is as friendly as the three chaps above…
