Eugene Cooney is a character first encountered in Issue 28 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a pudgy, bald cage fighter and resident living in Woodbury.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Eugene's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible he was already a resident living at Woodbury.

Post-Apocalypse

Woodbury, Georgia

Not much is known about his past. Eugene seems to have anger problems, such as when he gets his teeth knocked out by Harold in a fight, he goes on a rampage, killing Harold in Stevens' office by stabbing him in the neck. He is volatile and angry, making him one of Woodbury’s best fighters. He duels Michonne in a death match in the Woodbury cage and ends up dying having his head decapitated.

Death

Killed By

In the arena fight, Michonne kicks Eugene in his groin, and lastly, his head is decapitated. His reanimated head is presumably destroyed or kept by The Governor as his estranged form of television. One of his feet is given for food to Penny.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Eugene has killed:

Relationships

Harold Abernathy

It is clear that Eugene and Harold were not friends, as proven when Eugene aggressively confronted Harold in Stevens' clinic after having his teeth knocked out by Harold. Their dialogue did not suggest any sort of friendship, and Eugene had no problem sticking a knife in Harold's throat as payback.

Trivia

  • Robert Kirkman answered the question whether naming characters the same name, Billy, Chris, Jim, Eugene, Eric, and Bruce was an oversight, "It's not oversight at all. It's completely unrealistic for a group of people to meet at random and never encounter the same names."[1]
  • Eugene's last name, Cooney, was mentioned in the novel, The Fall of the Governor.
