In Free Guy, a character referred to as the Dude is placed in the city. The role is played by Ryan Reynolds who also plays (Blue Shirt) Guy. As Guy is just one of many NPC's and the Dude was still being written and programmed, why would they both just happen to look alike?


1 Answer 1


When Guy starts leveling up, he quickly becomes famous and popular. Antwan, wanting to capitalize on Guy's popularity, demands that a Blue Shirt Guy be added to Free City 2. So the team creates Dude with all the "upgrades" that Antwan wanted added.

    I do recall that Antwan yelled at the art people to capitalize on the Blue Shirt guy popularity, but I didn't see anywhere where that was specifically impacting Dude (and the time flow of the movie has so much happen so quickly that it is weird to think that in this one particular area, this singular chnage was made).

  • Antwan did yell something just before they put Dude in the game where he said I programmed / updated his code and he is ready. he even comments on his catch phrase where he said I couldn't think of one but Catchphrase is a pretty cool catchphrase in itself.
