Nemesis, also called the Pursuer is a fictional character in Capcom's Resident Evil franchise. It first appears in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, before later emerging in other titles and cameo roles. It is also featured on various merchandise and in the 2004 film Resident Evil: Apocalypse. The character is voiced by an uncredited actor in the game, and portrayed by Matthew G. Taylor in the film.

Nemesis is a bio-organic weapon, created by the Umbrella Corporation as a form of super soldier. Designed as an improvement on Umbrella's previous Tyrant design, Nemesis can use weapons and think independently enough to overcome obstacles to complete its mission. Unleashed in Raccoon City, its orders are to kill all members of the STARS.

Since Nemesis's introduction, the character has received a positive reception, and has come to be regarded as one of the series' most popular characters. Publications such as GamePro have praised its role as an intimidating villain, while others such as IGN and GameDaily have noted it as one of their favorite and most terrifying monsters in video games. The general public also praised the character, earning it mention on G4's Filter and on GameSpot as one of their favorite villains of all time.

Introduced in Resident Evil 3, Nemesis was designed under the concept of a "huge, overpowering monster that could use weapons and [...] intelligently track you anywhere". During development, many different designs were considered. Although some elements remained constant among them, the early designs featured several different degrees of surface damage, as well as different options for clothing such as a protective vest instead of a coat or a nude design similar to the original Tyrant from Resident Evil.
