There is something special about the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series that is difficult to describe to someone who wasn’t there in the late 1990s and early 2000s, in the heyday of the franchise. It was one of the first big mainstream skateboarding games, and was filled with quirks and fun unlockables. One of those was the many hidden characters you could shred with. The likes of Spider-Man, Darth Vader and the Doom Slayer all were featured in the games at some point or another. It’s a different world now, though, and certain companies are far more protective of their IPs as they once were, but the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 remaster looks to still be bringing back an old friend.

The recent demo was datamined, and within it, the files for a potential secret character have been found. Those who recall the older games will also recall Officer Dick, a slightly overweight cop who was all about skateboarding on his off time. Here it looks like he will be featured and, also, that he will get a face lift to look like one Jack Black. The picture and files were originally found via Reddit, but have since been deleted, but the internet never forgets, and you can see the file picture below.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will release September 4th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A demo for the game is available now for those who preorder the game digitally.
