Leatherface is the main antagonist of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre films 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, Nubbins and Chop-Top, were the hunters of the family. Bringing in fresh meat for the eldest brother Drayton to cook up. The fresh meat they served was human. Leatherface or as he was known by his family Jed, would use one tool to bring down his prey and sometimes Mexicans. 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."
