Ada Wong was just in the remake of RE4, so here are all of her roles in the Resident Evil games.
Ada Wong is one of the most well-known characters in the Resident Evil series. She is known for being a badass femme fatale. She works as a corporate spy for “the organization,” which is a competitor to Umbrella and makes bioweapons. She is often hired to do hard, cruel jobs that have caused many deaths and bioterrorism attacks over the years.
Ada is not a normal hero, but she has become one of the most famous anti-heroes in video game history. She has been showing up more and more in recent years, and fans want her back in every new game. But which games in the series has this popular character appeared in?
Resident Evil 2 (1998/2019)
Resident Evil 2 is the story of Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. It was first released in 1998, and a great remaster of the game came out in 2019.
Ada is a big part of this story. She pretends to be Leon’s friend, but then betrays him so she can find a sample of the G-Virus as she was told to do. Even though she’s mostly a side character in this game, you can play as her for a short time when you’re chasing Annette and when you have to solve a problem to get the club key.
Resident Evil 4 (2005 & 2023)
Survival horror game Resident Evil 4 came out in 2005 and was later redone in 2023. Now, the story is about how special agent Leon Kennedy tries to save Ashley Graham, the daughter of the US president, from a religious cult in Spain.
Ada Wong is a big part of the game’s story and one of its main characters. She is working with the game’s main villain, Wesker, again to get the Las Plagas virus, a disease that turns its victims into human puppets. Given how well they get along, she and Leon sometimes (and, in Leon’s case, reluctantly) work together in Resident Evil 4, often coming to each other’s aid. Ada isn’t a playable character in the main mission, but in the original game, after the main story is over, players can play as Ada in her own timeline of events through a minigame called “Separate Ways.”
Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (2007)
Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles basically tells the story of the first three games, but this time it goes into much more detail and adds important events to the timeline so that players can fully understand how Umbrella came to an end. The game is different from the first three in that Wesker now tells the story and it is played from a first-person point of view.
Ada is the main playable character in the scenario “Death’s Door.” This task follows Ada as she brings the G-Virus sample back to Wesker, despite being badly hurt from her fall, and escapes Raccoon City before it is bombed.
Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles (2009)
As part of the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection, Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles came out. Like Umbrella Chronicles, the plot tells the story of two past games, Resident Evil 2 and Code: Veronica, with a third act that ties the two stories together.
Ada isn’t a playable character in this game, but she is a supporting character in chapters 3,5, and 6 of the “Memories of a Lost City” scenario. This mission tells the story of Resident Evil 2, which was arguably Ada’s most famous appearance to date.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (2012)
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has nothing to do with the storyline and is not at all official. It tells the story of two teams that are at odds with each other: Delta Force and Echo Six. Delta Force’s mission is to destroy any proof that Umbrella was involved with the T-Virus outbreak, while Echo Six’s mission is to find evidence that will prove them guilty.
Before the blast, the Delta Force will find Ada in the lab, where they are told to kill her. Ada, however, gets away. In Funny Shooter, Ada is the boss, and the player has to fight her in a battle where she uses both guns and bombs. Once the player gets close to Ada, she will run away, so they will have to chase her through the lab.
Ada can also be used in the game’s “Heroes Mode,” which lets players compete against each other.
Resident Evil 6 (2012)
Resident Evil 6 is a third-person shooter game that came out in 2012, the same year as Operation Raccoon City. The plot follows the stories of the game’s four main characters and their different journeys, which are played out in separate campaigns. In most of these campaigns, the people responsible for a worldwide bioterrorism attack have to be faced.
Ada is one of the four characters you can play as in Resident Evil 6. She is once again more of an anti-hero/anti-villain because she works for Neo-Umbrella, a group whose main goal is to destroy the whole world. Her campaign is based on her goal to find Carla Radames, the founder of Neo-Umbrella, and Derek Simmons, the leader of “The Family,” so she can find and destroy any evidence that she was involved in bioterrorism.
Resident Evil: Re:Verse (2022)
Resident Evil: Re:Verse came out in 2022 and is a very different addition to the series. It is an online survival payback battle game where two to six players must fight to the death. It has a group of fan-favorite characters that you can play as, and each one has its own set of skills.
Ada Wong is one of the most famous human characters you can play as in the game. She has a pistol and a crossbow. She also has a strong set of skills that make her very good at avoiding damage. These skills include “Pipe Bomb Arrow,” “Somersault Kick,” and “A Spy’s Wisdom,” which lets her dodge stamina be slightly restored when the player’s health is low.
