Villain Overview

I know what you're thinking, but the funny thing is, I don't even like video games.

Postal Dude Jr. is the villainous main protagonist and playable character of the controversial Postal video game franchise.

He was voiced by Rick Hunter in the Postal, Postal Redux, Postal 2, and it's expansions and as a voice option in Postal 4. Corey Cruise in Postal 3, Postal 3: Brain Damaged, and as a voice option in Postal 4, and Jon St. John in Postal 4: No Regerts. He was played by Zack Ward in the live-action film.

Appearance

Postal Dude is depicted as a middle-aged tall, thin man sporting a soul patch and red hair. He is always seen wearing sunglasses and a long trench coat whose color varies between games, as well as a t-shirt with a stamp of an alien. In Postal, he has much longer hair and now has fingerless gloves. In Postal Redux, he is shown to have a red button-up shirt. In Postal 4, he wears a t-shirt with a monkey on it and wears a purple bathrobe. In the Postal 2 beta shown at E3 2002, the Postal Dude had no glasses, exposing his reddish eyes, and he was much taller and thin. In Postal and Postal Redux, the voice heard in gameplay played by Rick Hunter isn't the Postal Dude himself, it was confirmed to be a demon in his head commenting on his killing spree. This is verifiable by the fact that within the original game files, Hunter's voice clips are labeled as "demon".

Personality

While in the original game, Postal Dude appears to be nothing more than a melevoyant psychopath who hates everyone and everything, the remake is very different. When played on harder difficulties, it is shown that Postal Dude actually appears to be a paranoid schizophrenic who is having some form of a schizophrenic attack, believing that he is acting in self-defense and that the world is out to get him.

In Postal 2 onwards, the Dude is shown as an antisocial and reclusive loner who is just minding his own business. On the surface, he is a very easygoing and imperturbable guy, usually not minding the stuff happening around him and constantly making unflattering and sarcastic remarks about them. Despite all that, he also displays extreme sociopathic tendencies, in particular his penchant for bouts of murderous violence against anyone he comes across for a variety of reasons, and sometimes for no reason at all. He tends to view these violent acts in a very blasé fashion (like he doesn't care), or with wry observations ("it's like bowling, only cooler!"), sick humor /jokes ("Have a nice day!", "edged weapons -- someone could lose a limb...hehe, yeah!") Or cold self-reflection ("Guns don't kill people, I DO.") He also loves his dog Champ dearly, going to great lengths to save him on both expansions of the second game. Despite having no prior experience with firearms, he is shown to be very skilled with them, even able to improvise on the spot.

However, it is interesting to note that in Postal 2, the Dude is only as violent as the player wants him to be, as the majority of the missions can be completed with or without violence. However, it is usually simpler to take the former route, as the pacifistic solutions often require money, which is very scarce, or the player to avoid confrontation with enemies; also, if the player clears the game with a perfect pacifist run, they are awarded with an extra message in the end which says "Thank you for playing, JESUS." as a way to (almost mockingly) congratulate the player. However, given the sequels and the nature of the series, it seems that the more destructive way is the "canonical" one.

Origins

Name

In the Postal games, he is called the Postal Dude because he is the representative character for the series. In the film, he is called the Postal Dude by the people of Paradise because they blamed him on going postal at the Little Germany festival and causing a massacre, when in fact Al Qaeda were largely responsible for the death toll.

However in Postal III's introduction, the Dude says that he "hates that f***ing name". When the announcer asks him if he has a real name, he replies with "Uh, I forget. Kids, don't do drugs".

Family

The Postal Dude has four known relatives.

  • His step-father, T. Dude Sr. (whom Postal Dude hates) who died in 1996. His corpse is located in the Paradise Cemetery.
  • His unnamed mother.
  • Uncle Dave, a cult leader (in Postal 2) and a drug dealer (in Postal 2: Paradise Lost)
  • His real father, The Postal Dude, Sr. (also known as "The Boss"), the kingpin of Edensin.

Powers And Abilities

  • Marksmanship and weapon improvisation: Despite never being stated to have any previous experience with firearms, the Dude is very skilled with them, as well as being able to make use of improvised weapons, such as scissors or garden shears.
  • Stamina: the Postal Dude has a great amount of stamina and can run endlessly
  • Strength: the Postal Dude is quite strong and can use his strength to beat several individuals in a row, despite having no apparent martial arts skills.

Trivia

  • The Postal Dude's age has never been revealed, the Postal concepts from 1996 mentions that he is twenty-seven years old. It has also been confirmed that he is in his early 50's by the time the fourth game takes place.
  • In Postal 2, when quick saving repeatedly in order to make progress in difficult areas (also known as save scumming), the Dude may call the player out on the cowardly tactic, saying even his grandmother could beat the game eventually if she used the same method. Turning on cheat codes will make The Dude call the player a "sissy".
  • The Postal Dude's favorite type of cheese is gruyère.
  • If the Postal Dude is wearing a policeman's uniform or the lawman chaps in Paradise Lost, he will be allowed to do almost anything he wants to including robbing and killing anyone he feels like, and will only be in trouble with the police if he attacks them.
  • When the Postal Dude is kidnapped by Rednecks on Wednesday, there is a direct reference to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction when one of them uses Zed's infamous line "Bring out the gimp".
  • Despite the vast amount of awful things the Postal Dude can do and not caring at all what the hate groups do to other people (such as religious terrorism or cannibalism), if he goes into the arcade and finds a game known as "Teen Sniper", he will show pure disgust at the thought of killing kids saying "That's clearly wrong.".
  • It is possible to complete the game without the Postal Dude killing anyone, however this is not possible in Apocalypse Weekend as some missions require the player to kill a certain amount zombies and diseased cows.
  • The Postal Dude makes an appearance as a playable character in Oh Sir! The Insult Simulator.
  • Barring Krotchy, the Postal Dude is the only human character that cannot be gibbed or dismembered in Postal III.
  • The mugshot from the intro of Postal III lists the Dude's height as 6' 8".
  • According to background dialogue from POSTAL 4, the Postal Dude has a tapeworm.
  • In development footage of the original Postal, he was meant to have an black jacket like his original design, but iy changed to red due to the black jacket blending in to the background due to older computers.
  • Due to both characters being played by Zack Ward, a running joke within the fanbase is that Postal Dude and Scut Farkus and actually the same people and that the Postal game are a sequel to A Christmas Story.
  • It is very possible that the Postal Dude from the first game and it's remake is actually the main Dude's father.
