Vince is Madame Charmaine's third best voodoo doll, and the protagonist of Voodoo Vince. His goal is to save Madame Charmaine, his creator, from the clutches of Kosmo the Inscrutable. Vince is very agile, capable of performing a variety of combat moves, as well as having the notable ability of killing several enemies at once through use of his voodoo powers - hurting himself in a various ways (such as cutting himself in half with a chainsaw) will be inflicted upon his enemies (for example, his enemies then being cut in half).
After Kosmo's goons unleashed the power of the Zombie Dust, it brought Vince to life. Madame Charmaine then communicates with him through telepathy. Kosmo appears and laughs at him, thinking he can't defeat him but Vince destroys his vision proving his power
Vince has a large arsenal of voodoo power to help him on his quest, but he also has some non-voodoo attacks to help himself.
Main article: Voodoo Powers.
Being a Voodoo doll, Vince is capable of inflicting damage on enemies by hurting himself. Vince is able to summon various methods of death, from bear traps to alien death rays, to do this.
To use his powers, Vince must collect enough Beads (dropped by enemies upon their death) to gain a Skull Icon. Vince can also gain new Voodoo Powers (methods of death) through finding Voodoo Power Icons.
Voodoo Powers are activated by pulling both the left and right triggers simultaneously.
Vince is very sarcastic, often quipping and making remarks as he explores and defeats monsters, and will often acknowledges the absurdity of most of the situations he encounters in a self-aware manner. He expresses a fair amount of annoyance and even frustration with being the hero, even going so far as to break the fourth wall when he complains about it. This is especially evident when he is asked to perform favors by other characters, like Dr. Ethel needing balloon materials or Dolly wanting him to kill the monsters in Brusque Manor.
He is however loyal to his creator, Madame Charmaine, with her rescue being the only real motivation he has throughout the game. Despite his pessimistic attitude, he will show signs of enjoying himself, often celebrating or talking himself up after completing an important task, and catches himself having fun as well, such as at the end of Rat Race Rodeo, cheering "Yee-HAA!" in victory, before immediately downplaying it and resuming his usual attitude. He also has a somewhat immature sense of humor, sometimes making crude jokes to himself, and at one point farting as a punchline while insulting Kosmo.
