President Huffman is the President of the United States who appears as a minor character in Destroy All Humans!.
During 1959 (the first game's setting), Huffman has won the presidential election against Richard Nixon (historically, John F. Kennedy won the election in 1960). Most of the Americans in the game see him as sleazy and crooked, and the few who do like him (primarily women) admire his looks. The Military, particularly Armquist, dislike him, believing him to be a puppet for Silhouette and Majestic.
After Armquist's death in Union Town at the hands of Crypto, Huffman makes a public speech in front of the Capitol Building, where he is assassinated by Crypto, who managed to wipe out a Majestic unit disguised as a presidential convoy. If Crypto fails to assassinate him within the time limit, the papers will call President Huffman "loco" because of his "confused speech". However, his death was covered up by the newspapers claiming he was ill, and his brain was later extracted by Silhouette and used to build the Roboprez, a giant robot mech controlled by Silhouette. The Roboprez was destroyed by Crypto's Saucer.
Crypto later uses Huffman's body to masquerade as the President and take over the US government, operating a new non-lethal Furon DNA extraction method through Testing Machines. However, Crypto soon lost interest in controlling the government, which led Orthopox into creating a "contraption" of Huffman to keep the government in control. Although never seen, Pox tells Crypto that the clone's approval rating went up by three in the ten year span. Crypto is also mentioned as being known as the president by other characters in the game.
By Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed, Huffman retires as president.
- Huffman is likely a parody of former U.S presidents Truman and Kennedy.
- If Cortex Scan is used on him during his only appearance, Huffman is seen as somewhat sadistic, having witnessed the death of Cryptosporidium-136. He comments positively on the look on his face and listen to him squeal "like a pig".
- Even if Huffman is disintegrated or has his brain extracted, Silhouette will still get his brain for the Roboprez.
