Forest is in charge of vehicle and weapons maintenance. He is described as being a perfectionist, and well-regarded by his teammates due to his professionalism. He also has a close friendship and rivalry with Alpha Team member Chris Redfield, as they are both professional marksmen.
In Resident Evil: Director's Cut, a scene was added in the "Arrange" mode in which Forest revives and attacks the player. This zombie version was brought back in the GameCube remake of the game, as well as in Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, an enhanced Nintendo DS port (also, Zombie Forest is a boss in the game's unlockable "Masters of Knifing" minigame).
One Dangerous ZombieEdit
An additional game mode can be also be unlocked in the GameCube remake in which the zombified Forest, wearing a bandoleer of grenades, appears randomly in certain rooms. Attacking him with any weapon, including the knife, will result in a massive explosion, killing Forest and the player instantly. He also makes an appearance in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. He revives on the balcony, just as he did in the other versions. When he is defeated, Chris states that he will miss their target practice sessions together.
Forest makes a cameo in the prequel Resident Evil 0.
- The concept art of Forest from Resident Evil 0 bears a striking resemblance to the actor Robert Patrick's appearance in Terminator 2.
