Fritz Fuchs is a minor antagonist in Hitman: Codename 47 and a flashback antagonist in Hitman: Contracts. He is a terrorist appearing in both version of Traditions of the Trade, serving as its secondary antagonist. He is one of the infamous Fuchs Brothers who are a group of terrorists and one of Agent 47's uncles.
He was originally a killable NPC (or an optional victim) in Codename 47, but became the mission's secondary target in the Hitman: Contracts remake. Nevertheless, it was vital in both versions to eliminate Fritz so that 47 could seize the Fuchs Brothers' chemical bomb much easier.
Fritz was one of the Fuchs Brothers who joins his brothers' cause. He had been suffering from heart problems and couldn't withstand heat.
In the mission Traditions of the Trade, Fritz and his brother Frantz Fuchs had planned to set off a chemical bomb at a UN summit. Fritz Fuchs is posing as a dentist, and is storing the chemical bomb in the X-ray room in his dentist practice. However, Agent 47 killed Fritz and Frantz and took the chemical bomb with him before they can set it off.
In Hitman: Codename 47, Fritz was killed by 47 during taking sauna bath, via rising up the tempreature to cause a heart failure, killing Fritz. In Hitman: Contracts, however, Fritz was (canonically) killed by 47 whilst swimming in the bathhouse, after 47 pludged Fritz' head into the pool and drowned him, though the killing via sauna bath is still available for Fritz's elimination.
In HITMAN (2016), Fritz was featured in "Legacy" trailer and cutscene, as one of the past targets eliminated by 47 who appeared in Lucas Grey's flashback. Here, it showed that Fritz was (canonically) killed by 47 via drowning in the bathhouse, like that in Contracts.
- Similar to the Blue Lotus Emissary in The Massacre at Cheung Chau Fish Restaurant and The Seafood Massacre, Fritz was not originally a target, but was made one in the Hitman: Contracts remakes. This is due to him being necessary in accessing the Chemical Bomb.
- Fuchs' hairstyle and mustache appearance in Hitman: Codename 47 resembles that of Adolf Hitler.
