Can you turn off Mr. X?
I really don't want to bother with him playing this.

If you play on PC, people have created a mod to remove him... among many other silly mods such as putting him in a speedo or just making him invisible.

If you play on console, you're out of luck.

You can turn him into Thomas the Tank Engine if you like

Never thought I'd be scared of Thomas the Engine, but here we are...
Honestly, that's even more frightening than Mr. X.

He's pretty easy to avoid. Of course it makes you take the long way around, but it's worth it to avoid having to waste ammo on him. And he is slow enough you can usually dart around objects to get around him in various areas or use the safe rooms to let him go past you (you can keep the door open enough to keep an eye on him) and then dart out once he's gone past.

If you do it right you just kind of
Spoiler:
rush through the station once he starts following you to get things done to get out of it asap and then go back to the station afterAda runs him over with the van to finish collecting things you missed. Because then you can do so at your leisure without worry of him showing up.

This game is scary lol. I can't take Mr. X stalking me - so tense. Just out of curiosity, why do fans call him Mr. X?

He was never referred to as a Tyrant or Mr. X in the original RE2 game, but Tyrant was first referred to as Mr. X by Claire in a novelization by SD Perry that released way back in 1999 along with some other promotional material.

Umbrella Corp created multiple Tyrants. "Mr. X" is a Tyrant, but has a different designation (T-103) than the original RE Tyrant (T-002), so he's a different type of Tyrant, one that can be controlled.

Resident Evil 2 (1998) introduced the T-103 Tyrant as an additional, persistent enemy in the "B" scenario, as opposed to having another Tyrant as an endgame boss. In the Prima strategy guide, he is nicknamed "Big Guy", but has since been retconned as a Tyrant-type.

Oh wow, didn't know there was that much backstory, thanks.
