Destroy All Humans! Wiki


President Huffman is the President of the United States who appears as a minor character in Destroy All Humans!


During 1959 (the first game's setting), Huffman has won the presidential election against Richard Nixon (historically, John F. Kennedy won the election in 1960). Some of the Americans in the game see him as sleazy and crooked, and those who do like him (primarily women) admire his looks. The Military, particularly Armquist, dislike him, believing him to be a puppet for Silhouette and Majestic.

After Armquist's death in Union Town at the hands of Crypto, Huffman makes a public speech in front of the Capitol Building, where he is assassinated by Crypto, who managed to wipe out a Majestic unit disguised as a presidential convoy. If Crypto fails to assassinate him within the time limit, the papers will call President Huffman "loco" because of his "confused speech". However, his death was covered up by the newspapers claiming he was ill, and his brain was later extracted by Silhouette and used to build the Roboprez, a giant robot mech controlled by Silhouette. The Roboprez was destroyed by Crypto's Saucer.

Crypto later uses Huffman's disguise to masquerade as the President and take over the US government, operating a new non-lethal Furon DNA extraction method through Testing Machines. However, Crypto soon lost interest in controlling the government, which led Orthopox into creating a "mechanism" of Huffman to keep the government in control. Although never seen, Pox tells Crypto that his job approval rating has tripled since he made the switch. Crypto is also mentioned as being known as the President by other characters in the game, much to his surprise.

By the time of Big Willy Unleashed, Crypto as Huffman officially resigns from the position of President.

Mission Appearances


  • Huffman is likely a parody of former U.S presidents Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy. In terms of appearance, he seems to resemble former president Ronald Reagan in the original game, though the remastered alters his appearance to look like Kennedy, whose voice is coincidentally imitated for the Mayor of Rockwell and the Mayor of Santa Modesta. In the remake he also has thoughts about Marilyn Monroe, who Kennedy supposedly had an affair with.
  • If Cortex Scan is used on him during his only appearance, Huffman is seen as somewhat sadistic, having witnessed the death of Cryptosporidium-136. He comments positively on the look on his face and listen to him squeal "like a pig".
  • Even if Huffman is disintegrated or has his brain extracted, Silhouette will still get his brain for the Roboprez.
    • In the remake Crypto is able to extract his brain, however is unable to collected it.
  • Huffman's presidency lasts fifteen years (1959 in the first game to 1974 in Big Willy Unleashed), which in real-life is not possible. Presidency in the United States of America lasts a four year term, with a total of eight years if the candidate is re-elected for another term.
