Sam Bridges is the main protagonist of Death Stranding.

History Edit


Death Stranding Edit


Abilities Edit

Sam possesses, like the Unnamed Woman 01, an unknown factor called DOOMS, specifically the extinction factor,[2] wich probably gave him some mysterious “unique” abilities. The first one is the ablity to "sense" the Mysterious Entities,[3] manifesting itself as a form of rash on his skin; the second one occur when he die: he can wander outside his body in a sort of "upside-down world", where he can freely navigate and than return in his body, transported back to the world of the living.[4] When Sam is "eat" by one of the Mysterious Entities, it will trigger a "voidout", causing a crater in the area that will remain even when he return in the world.[5]

Contrarily to the Unnamed Woman 01, he can't see the Mysterious Entities but thanks to the baby pod he can see them through the fout-point shoulder-mounted robotic device.

Sam is also differently afflicted by the Timefall than most other lifeforms, probably due to the ingestion of the Cryptobiote.

Behind the Scenes Edit

Sam likeness, voice, motion capture, and even the tatoo on his right inner bicep, was provided by American actor Norman Reedus.[6] During TGS 2018 stage was revealed Kenjiro Tsuda as the Japanese voice of Sam.[7]

During a podcast with Dan Fogle, Norman Reedus talk about Sam revealing that he as "phobia of being touched, and as you play the game the phobia leaves you".[8]
