Destroy All Humans 2

Destroy All Humans 2
-Sequel to the first one
-Made by Pandemic Studios
-The game is set in 1969, 10 years after the original. The games begins with a KGB slid show.
-Soon after, things begin. Crypto must stop the KGB from destroying America. Crypto's boss, Orthopox 13, downloaded himself into a hologram unit just before he died. Crypto finds out that the KGB have fled to Albion, and they follow. There he meets Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe, a James Bond like figure with M16 or British Intelligence. Also he meets a rogue KGB agent named Natalya. They find that the KGB have created a type of spore that can mutate a human into a monster. Eventually Ponsonby betrays Crypto, revealing that he is British Intelligence, part of Majestic, Sector 16, the British branch.

-Then Crypto learns that the KGB have a base in Takoshima. Arriving in Takoshima, Crypto is to rescue a man named Dr. Go(parody of Dr. No). He provides info and access to the KGB base hidden in the island's volcano. Crypto and Natalya must break into this base and they eventually find out that the person behind most of this is the Russian Premier Milenkov. He shows them a clip showing his men using the spores on a Takoshimese girl, who tranforms into a Godzilla-like creature, called Kojira. After defeating the monster, Crypto and Natalya travel to Tunguska, a remote scientific industrial town in Russia. Crypto finds another alien race has taken over the town, The Blisk. They are an enemy the Furons fought during the Martian War. Pox realizes the Tunguska event of 1908 was actually a Blisk warship crashing on Earth. After rescuing Natalya from a Blisk gas bubble, the 2 go to the Moon where Project Solaris is.

-There they find a superweapon designed to bombard the Earth with Blisk spores and radiation, granting the Blisk control of Earth as their new irradiated, water-logged homeworld. Using his ability to "body snatch" Crypto disguises himself as cosmonaut Leonid, the head scientist and convinces the rest of the cosmonauts to turn against the Blisk. Crypto also manages to sabotage the firing mechanism for the weapon. So Milenkov confronts Crypto and he reveals that they have been controlling the Russian government. Natalya and Crypto destroy the Blisk Hive Mind with a virus called O.M.G.W.T.F. After fighting Milenkov, Crypto relaxes in his saucer with Natalya in bed.


-Cryptosporidium (furon) Cryptosporidium, known as Crypto for short, is the main character in the series. A member of an alien species known as Furons, he is an anti-hero who enjoys wreaking havoc and destroying humanity and he speaks with a very slow and emotionless Texas accent. He is known to have a best friend/ ally personality with Pox, although he does not like to admit it and enjoys pushing his buttons. He is also known to be an alcoholic, tomboy, gambler, smoker and many other personalities of the sort. His name comes from the Cryptosporidium protist. Crypto's commanding officer is Orthopox 13, who usually gives him his missions. Sometimes, Crypto talks with a variety of wise-cracking remarks. Voiced by J. Grant Albrecht and Sean Donnellan (in Big Willy Unleashed).In Japanese version, he is voiced by Kappei Yamaguchi.

Orthopox 13
-Orthopox, known as Pox for short, is Crypto's commanding officer, who gives him his assignments. Pox is an intelligent furon scientist who likes to experiment on the species' DNA, and is the second most senior fleet commander in the entire Furon Navy. Pox is the mastermind behind the expedition to retrieve the furon DNA from Human brain stems. Pox is a brilliant tactician, a canny businessman, and holds his own in chess. However, years of physical neglect has rendered his lower extremities somewhat useless, requiring the use of a cerebro chair, with which he uses to float about, and to help support his massive cranium.[2] Pox also has Cranial Implants on his head, which resemble metallic horns. These could be a sign of Pox's high status in the Furon Armada. Pox's achievements include: Conqueror of Zarkon-5, Hero of the Battle of Tharsis Mons, Winner of the Xanthrax-47 Mental Cruelty Award 6 years running. Having been destroyed at the beginning of Destroy All Humans! 2, Pox's mind has been confined to a HoloPox unit, a furon hologram projector that he developed himself, which he managed to download his conscious into before the mothership exploded and his last words,(WHAT THE???!!!), were Spoken. Though with this unusual handicap Crypto makes many jokes about at Pox's expense about being dead. He remains this way until he obtains a monkey`s body by mistake in Destroy All Humans! 3. Between the times of Destroy All Humans! 2 and Destroy All Humans! 3, Pox opens a new restaurant called Big Willy's. However, it is revealed that Pox has been collecting the dead bodies Crypto leaves lying around and feeding them back to the people as hot dogs in the Big Willy Franchise. By the time of Path of the Furon, Pox is extremely bitter about being confined to his holographic prison and wants to just collect the human DNA and go home so he can receive a new clone body. He is voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz (causing him to sound like Zim from Invader Zim, albeit with an English accent) and by Darryl Kurylo in Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed

Supporting Characters
  • Natalya Ivanova - was a KGB agent who went rogue after strange things begin to happen. She allies with Crypto in order to save both their species from Milenkov and the Blisks. She is killed at the end of the game, but Crypto reclones her. It is revealed in Big Willy Unleashed that they had a son. In an in-game conversation, Pox reveals that her clone died about six years before the events of Path of the Furon due to human clones having a short lifetime. She is located in all the countries Crypto goes to.
  • Agent Ivan Oranchov - he was a commanding KGB officer, and was in charge of the KGB operations in Bay City and Albion. In a final duel with Crypto, he uses Blisk spores to transform himself into a humanoid Blisk creature, but is ultimately killed. KGB agent's thoughts sometimes contain questions such as "Why does Agent Oranchov always shout at me?", or a statement such as "Agent Oranchov is mean." even after the Soviet spymaster has been eliminated.
  • Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe - is secretly leader of the Majestic command in Albion. He helps Crypto in two missions, but then betrays him. He is killed by Crypto after he escapes. He speaks with a posh British accent and wields an umbrella rifle. It is discovered through mind-scanning Ponsonby or listening to his speech during his final battle, that he was in love with Silhouette from the original game.
  • Blisk - The aliens that the Furons defeated and all-but-destroyed in the Martian War. Pox describes them as "brutes with large claws and withering halitosis" and the result of "a cockroach mating with a lobster." They have a single hive mind, and are attracted to radiation, as it nourishes them. They are located in the Soviet Union and on the Soviet Moon base. They are able to mutate humans with their spores.
  • The KGB - An original enemies of Destroy All Humans! 2 until the Blisk are discovered. KGB commanders include Agent Oranchov, Sasha Soyisorski, Soviet Premier Milenkov, Blazitsky, Zablazitsky and Leonid. The KGB base: in Bay City is The Rock, in Albion is the abandoned tunnel network (as well as M16), in Takoshima is the volcano as well as a single building in the city, in Tunguska is the large KGB Base, as well as acting as the police when the alert level is raised and on the moon is Solaris. If subjected to Crypto's psychoknesis, then the KGB agents may quote "You will cease to levitate me this instance!" or "You think we cannot do this in Soviet Union?!"
  • Majestic Command, Sixteenth Sector - The British Majestic, controlled by Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe and ultimately Her Majesty. If a British Majestic agent (or Secret Agent) is manipulated by Crypto's psychoknesis, then they will quote "I bet Blofield put you up to this." or "I haven't got a license to levitate!"

By reading his mind, you find out that he sometimes thinks things such as "I am a fish! I am a fish! I am a fish...." or "I AM THE KING OF THE LIZARDS!". It is revealed by reading his mind that all of the other hippies avoid him unless it is to buy drugs from him.
-Albion. This level is a parody of London in the 1960s. You might notice that alot of the men in this level have collarless suits that were made especially famous by The Beatles, and the men and women all make various references to musicians, people popular in England in the 1960s, such as The Kinks, The Rolling Stones,The Beatles, Marianne Faithfull, Dianna Rigg, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Michael Caine, etc.
-Bay City. This level is a parody of San Francisco.
