Whatever you've got, I've seen worse.

Hellboy, a character from Dark Horse Comics, is a playable guest character who appears in Injustice 2 (2017). He is available through DLC as part of Fighter Pack 2.

About Hellboy[]

Anung Un Rama, whose name literally translates as “And upon his brow is set a crown of flame”, was conceived in October 15, 1574, the day that his birth mother, Sarah Hughes, a human woman, was on her deathbed. Hughes was a witch who conceived her powers from being the consort of Azzazel, Archduke of Hell, who was Anung Un Rama’s biological father. When Hughes attempted to repent at a church on her deathbed in East Bromwich, England, Azzazel burned her body away so that their child would be born and de-limbed Anung Un Rama’s right hand and replaced it with the aptly-named “Right Hand of Doom”, a relic tied to the Lovecraftian cult known as the Ogdru Jahad. When the other princes of hell learned of Azzazel’s actions, he sent Anung Un Rama away while the former was stripped of his powers and sealed away in an icy prison as punishment. 355 years later, in the final months of WWII, young Anung Un Rama was summoned to Earth by Grigori Rasputin, a deranged Russian mystic, to Tarmagent Island, off the coast of Scotland, as part of “Project Ragna Rok”, having been commissioned by the Nazis to turn the tide of the war in their favor. In a fireball, Anung Un Rama came to Earth, arriving at the ruins of the East Bromwich church on December 23, 1944. Proving not to be a true devil in the traditional sense, but a devil-like creature, colloquially referred to in myth as a Cambion, he was redubbed “Hellboy” by Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm. He was then taken by the United States Armed Forces to an Air Force base in New Mexico. Bruttenholm raised Hellboy in as normal an environment as possible, and ironically, as a catholic. When he grew older, following the success of his first mission in 1952, he was granted “Honorary Human” status by the United Nations, and he became a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, a private organization dedicated to combatting Occult threats, where he became known as “The World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator”. As such, he interacts regularly with humans, especially law enforcement, military, and those who were referred to as “Scholars of the Weird”, most of whom do not react overtly to his strange appearance. In the BPRD, he is their primary agent, working alongside other human or quasi-human agents, including Kate Corrigan, a professor of folklore at New York University, Abe Sapien, an amphibian humanoid, and Elizabeth “Liz” Sherman, a young woman with pyrokinetic abilities. An occasional ally to Hellboy was the ghost of the murderous vigilante known as “The Lobster”. He reported directly to the director of the BRPD, who was also his adoptive father, Professor Bruttenholm, up until the professor was killed by a Lovecraftian frog monster.

Biography[]

As a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy has defended the world from fiends, witches, demons, and more than a few Lovecraftian Gods. With his trusty revolver and his Right Hand of Doom, Hellboy has made monster disposal his specialty.

Injustice 2[]

Hellboy serves as a downloadable character as part of Fighter Pack 2. In the game, Brainiac has brought Hellboy from his original universe to add him into his 'special collection'. To which Hellboy responds by beating him down. After that, his popularity rises after defeating Brainiac; he was offered positions and help from numerous individuals but became bored quickly, stating that 'it is not his thing'. When he returned to his universe and into the Bureau, it was not the same as usual. Hellboy soon decides to retire from his job and takes refuge in Africa.

Powers and Abilities[]

While fighting, Hellboy uses his revolver and an assortment of specialist grenades and magical relics; but most of his attacks are based on the Right Hand of Doom, his supposedly indestructible stone-like hand, which gives him enhanced strength and invulnerability, which also serves as his great defense. He also displays skilled marksmanship with his revolver, the 'Good Samaritan.'

Black Lightning and Vixen mention it will take everything they have to beat Hellboy.

Character Trait[]

Hellboy pulls out one of his medallions, engulfing him in an aura along with a flaming crown and flaming horns. He gains one of the following traits based on a button input:

  • Broom's Rosary: A patchy, red aura forms around Hellboy, giving him armor until the buff ends. Sustaining too much damage ends the buff early.
  • Agrippa's Charm: A flaming aura engulfs Hellboy, increasing all damage dealt, with the exception of his Super Move. The effect lasts about as long as Whittier's Amulet.
  • Whittier's Amulet: A red aura forms around Hellboy reducing all damage taken. This buff lasts the longest.
  • Mohlomi's Bell: A heavenly aura shines off Hellboy's shoulders, giving him the ability to resurrect when defeated, restoring some health. The amount of health returned is based on how much Super Meter he has when defeated, however, Hellboy may only resurrect when on his second bar of health. This effect lasts the shortest out of all his buffs.

Other Moves[]

  • Grab: Hellboy knocks the opponent in the air with an uppercut, then slices them with Excalibur, knocking them further away.

Super Move[]

  • Final Resting Place: Hellboy pulls out one of his medallions and punches a hole in the ground with his stone fist, creates a portal to Hell, then lunges onto the player while the ground traps their feet, tackling them into the hole. He punches them several times while falling into Hell. The player lands and is attacked by demons while Hellboy does an overhead smash with his axe before bringing him and the player back to the battlefield.

Injustice 2- Hellboy's Ending

Somehow, Brainiac shanghaied me on a slow boat to this universe. Bastard had big dreams about me in his "Collection". Guess what I thought about that idea. Taking Brainiac out certainly got folk's attention. I got a lotta offers to stick around, but I got bored quick. Megalomaniac villains and tights-wearing heroes really aren't my thing. What's it they say? Home is where the heart is? But when I got back, things just weren't the same. The bureau was too small. Was time for me to hit the road. Africa was totally the right call. The wide open spaces suit me. Clean air, starry skies and, not surprisingly, more than a few monsters to hunt. All in all, makes for a pretty good life.

Costumes[]

Hellboy - Anung Un Rama

Hellboy's base costume is identical to his design in the comics. He wears a thick trench coat with a grey undershirt, mid-length padded pants, and boots that reveal the toes of his hooves.

To the right is Hellboy's base skin, Anung Un Rama. He is wearing his default gear. The remainder of his costumes can be found on his gallery page.

Trivia[]

  • Injustice 2 marks the first time in 17 years, that Hellboy was portrayed by a voice actor other than Ron Perlman, who has portrayed Hellboy in almost all live action films, animated series and video games (the first time being a video game where he was voiced by David Gasman)
  • In-game, Hellboy's stone hand changes from his left to right depending on his stance, unlike in the comics were it has always been portrayed as his right hand. This may simply be an oversight.
  • Hellboy is the first guest character to not come from Mortal Kombat. The second being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
    • He is also the first, (second if the Mortal Kombat comics are counted), comic book guest character from another studio to be featured in the game. He originates from Dark Horse Comics.
  • Hellboy mentions that Brainiac tried to collect him.
  • Hellboy is the tallest character in-game, towering over most of the character in the game roster (Almost reaching the same height as Braniac and Darkseid).
    • He is usually known by many nicknames such as "Big Red" or "Red" in his universe, and "Big, Red Monkey" for insults.
  • Hellboy's ending in Injustice 2 is the only ending shown in Mignola comic book art style. The ending was illustrated by frequent Mignola collaborator Peter Bergting and overseen by Mike Mignola himself.
  • Hellboy is the third guest character to appear in Injustice 2 and the fourth guest character overall. The first was Scorpion from Injustice: Gods Among Us.
  • Hellboy's shaders are all unable to be purchased with Source Crystals, instead serving as random drops. This may be the result of the deal used to license the character to Warner Bros., which may contain a clause specifying that NetherRealm may only profit off of the sale of the DLC itself.
    • As of February 8th 2018, his shaders are available for purchase and he can be leveled up to level 30 instantly using Source Crystals.
  • Hellboy once had a crossover featuring Batman and the Jack Knight Starman titled Batman/Hellboy/Starman back in 1999.
  • Enchantress is the only character who know Hellboy's real name, Anung Un Rama.
    • So far in their interactions, Black Manta and Michaelanglo are the only ones who knows him by the name 'Hellboy'.
      • Many of the others don't even know he's called Hellboy.
        • Green Arrow even seems to mistake him for Atrocitus when first meeting him.
          • He will say his name to Atrocitus, calling himself Hellboy after Atrocitus simply calls him boy, after which he calls Atrocitus a dumbass.
            • He will introduce himself formally after Atom does the same in a pre-fight interaction. Similarly, Donatello will simply ask him who he is. Hellboy’s response is the same, however.
    • This marks the second time that Hellboy has crossed over with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the first time was when they both made cameo appearances in Savage Dragon #41.
    • This is also the first time he crosses over with characters from Mortal Kombat.
  • The manner in which Hellboy resurrects is very similar to how guest character Jason Voorhees resurrects in Mortal Kombat X.
    • Both require the fighter to lose all their health and will regain a percentage of health based on their remaining Super Meter.
      • Unlike Jason however, Hellboy must input a button input in order resurrect while Jason can simply resurrect when he loses all his health.
        • Ironically, both of these characters share ability traits with one another:
        • Both can grant themselves armor, increase their overall damage and resurrect when defeated. The only difference is that Jason can heal himself while Hellboy reduces his damage taken.
  • In one of his interactions with Jay Garrick he mentions a vigilante from the Hellboy comics, The Lobster. (Hellboy: "You ever meet the Lobster?" Jay Garrick: "Ah! Someone who knows his history." Hellboy: "History? I fought alongside the guy's ghost.").
  • If Hellboy's head piece increases the size of his horns, he will not grow elongated horns when using his character trait or during his victory pose.
  • In one of his encounters with Joker, he displayed an intense dislike of him (Hellboy: "Why do you do what you do?" Joker: "You can't spell "slaughter" without "laughter"!" Hellboy: "You are one sick piece of crap!").
  • The relics that Hellboy uses in combat are named after people in history and characters from the Hellboy comics.
      • Broom’s Rosary is named after Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, who was known by the nickname “Broom”, an allusion to the pronunciation of his surname.
      • Agrippa’s Charm is named after Roman consul, general, statesman and architect Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa.
      • Whittier’s Amulet is named after Professor Emile Whittier, who appeared in the Hellboy Comics.
      • Mohlomi’s Bell is named after African Bakoena chief and philosopher Mohlomi.
