Santa Sam, appearance-wise, looks like Serious Sam in a Santa suit with a fake beard, but is actually a different person.


Santa Sam is a multiplayer character in Serious Sam 1, Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam 3: BFE.

In Serious Sam 1 and Serious Sam HD, he is basically Serious Sam in a Santa suit and wearing a crappy fake beard. However, in Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3: BFE, he received a new model that makes him look more like Santa and less like Serious Sam.

He appears as a secret in the level the Land of the Damned. Shooting him will make him drop armor, health, or a power-up. If you kill him, he makes the same sound that Sam makes when he dies.


Apparently, many people believed that Santa Sam actually was Santa until a kid pulled his beard off one day. After that, he disappeared from the public's view.

A few years later, Serious Sam found him selling ice cream on a beach while still wearing his Santa outfit. Sam gave him an offer to join him and take out Mental. Santa Sam accepted, and now he delivers very lethal gifts to Mental's forces.
