The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Weapon(s) of Choice
Chainsaw, Hammer and Hook
Leatherface is the main antagonist of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies and appears as a playble character in Terrordrome: Rise of the Boogeymen.
Not much is known about the monster known as Leatherface. He comes from a small cannibal family consisting of his brothers and his grandfather. The family worked in the slaughter houses of Texas and later on owned a roaming cafe. He and his brothers, the hitch hiker and Chop-Top, were the hunters of the family. Bringing in fresh meat for the eldest brother Dreyton to cook up. The fresh meat they served was human. Leatherface or as he was known by his family Bubba, would use one tool to bring down his prey. A chainsaw.
Leatherface has a lot of range in his attacks. He is a rather aggresive character who gets in close to his opponents and shreds them apart with his chainsaw. His helper involves him placing a bear trap on the ground that damages opponents who step on it.

Leatherface geared up for battle.
Prepared to hunt down the man who destroyed his family, land, and life.
He witnessed his family turn into horrible creatures.
Awful midgets, what kind of magic was that? The hunt began.
After chasing the Tall Man for months,
Leatherface finally got his revenge.
He saw many family members taken away...
...and couldn't do anything against the Tall Man's army.
The Tall Man was dead, Leatherface could return home.
He had to find something new to care about.
But Leatherface didn't notice a new Tall Man appear from a portal.
With the Tall Man around it is never over.
As the brand new Tall Man emerged from the dimensional portal,
He said: "Well nothing to care about, real matters awaits."

Relationships with Other Characters
- One of the first four characters to be playable.
- His in-game design is from the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), but his grunt noises are from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986), and his select screen picture is from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).
- Leatherface's stunned animation is different from all the other characters. Instead of twirling around and looking dizzy, he will rev up his chainsaw and try to get it started, assuming his chainsaw has run out of fuel or stopped working for some unknown reason.
- His Air K is a dropkick, possibly a reference to Leatherface's antics in FMW.
- Leatherface is one of the few terrordrome characters to have an official video game appearance in Mortal Kombat X (Freddy in the 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat and Jason in Mortal Kombat X).
