But denial and conflict are neither reasons or justifications for him telling a full scale zombie to "don't make me do this", "stay where you are" and "Mr.President!" (in the "stop" sense).
If there was a bystander, someone from the series who has had the experience of zombies as well, they would be all "what the hell is he doing talking to it and not pulling the trigger instead?" Capcom should have just made him hesitate all the way but keep his mouth shut at least, like Steve did and Claire was yelling for him to help. Helena could've yelled for Leon to help but Leon only would shoot at the last second. That would have been much more believable.
You need to go back and watch the segment several times over, maybe you'll finally see why it's so ridiculous by actions, since factual proof and logic doesn't seem to cut it for you.

That's not what I meantOriginally Posted by ElusionM
Leon certainly never thought that someone as important as the President could become a victim of a bioterrorist attack with all the security surrounding him, etc....
He never imagined his friend and boss becoming a zombie, if you want. Just like you would never imagine something bad for your friends.
Probably, but something's off. Why Leon, who managed to lose his innocence by becoming an experienced agent would return to his naive persona? Especially after Degeneration and Darkside where they showed him as the guy who knew a lot, but didn't bother to share these vital informations with his partners (Claire, Angela, Krauser, etc...). Capcom tried so hard in the past to show us how Leon became a badass and was no longer the naive guy of RE2.Leon has always been the naive, easily manipulated type of character. That's why his RE4 and Degen character failed because he was never made to be the cocky type, but rather the naive, good guy Joe (which he is in RE2 and now again in RE6).
I prefer the naive type, to be honest, but if he's really THAT naive in RE6, then it will bother me a little.
You know, your behavior is never that logical in extraordinary situations. How would YOU react then? I'd really like to know. Because there's no way to tell. You could talk to your friend, cry like a baby, laugh under pressure or be cold hearted. There's plenty of reactions possible. And Leon never killed a zombified friend before, I should add.And doesn't change the fact he has no reason to talk to a zombie.
