Once I let go of the spoon, there ain't no coming back.
~ Billy, throwing a grenade at the group.

William "Billy" Yoder is a member of the mercenary group InGen sent into Jurassic Park during the Isla Nublar Incident. He serves as an anti-hero of Jurassic Park: The Game in episodes 2 and 3, but later becomes the main antagonist in episode 4.

He was voiced by Jason Marsden.



At some point during the game, Billy and the others in a group of mercenaries are hired by InGen to retrieve and rescue remaining Jurassic Park staff on the island. Upon arriving, he finds Nedry's jeep and has a run-in with a Dilophosaurus. Soon after, he begins rounding up the survivors. He meets a female employee, who informs him of the shocking events that happened at Jurassic Park.

Along the way he and the mercenary group meet the Hardings: Gerry, Jess, and the smuggler Nima Cruz. At first, he is sympathetic towards the dinosaurs, ordering Oscar not to kill a Dilophosaurus that he had wounded. But as time wears on, his respect for them wears thin after seeing them kill his friends. He develops a rising resentment towards Laura Sorkin's motherly devotion to the dinosaurs, often contemptuously referring to them as her "freak show" or "pets" simply to spite her, and taking great care to emphasize that they will all be destroyed in the Napalm bombing. His dislike for her rises continuously after Oscar's death, and when she quietly reveals that she had known about the Troodons, he threatens to kill her, only to be stopped by Dr. Harding, Jess, and Nima - but not before forcing her at knifepoint to admit that everything had all been her fault.

After the deaths of his two best friends, he goes insane. He decides to take the Barbasol can for himself, so that he would be paid for the embryos. In the end he betrays the group and fights Nima. Billy doesn't hear the incoming T. rex, yet he manages to stand still. But Gerry, deciding to shift the tyrannosaur's attention to the enemy, kicks the Barbasol can so that it would fall into the water. In a lapse of judgement, Billy ran after the can and managed to grab it. After he gets up. he feels the breath of the Tyrannosaurus behind him before it devours him.
