Proof is one of the four protagonists in Def Jam Vendetta.


A true adrenaline junkie, Proof loves anything that gives him a thrill. He started racing motorcycles when he was a kid, and entered the U.S. Superbike circuit at 19. After a series of reckless maneuvers, Proof was ruled responsible for a crash that ended the career of one of the other racers and was handed a five-year suspension.

Role In Def Jam Vendetta[]

Proof shares the same role as the other protagonists in story mode. This individual was once the champion of the underground fighting circuit [1] and, at one point, met and eventually dated Angel, who performed at the clubs he fought in. This all changed when local mob boss and businessman, D-Mob, entered the circuit. D-Mob started to make changes to the circuit and assembled a loyal group of followers to safeguard his territory. Apparently, Proof did not want to fall under this conformity and had rebelled against it. This prompts D-Mob to come up with a scheme to get rid of him, he does this by seducing Angel with promises of fame and fortune and dangling a record contract for her. This angers Proof enough to challenge D-Mob to a fight resulting in Proof's defeat and being chased out of town.[2] Three years later, prior to the events of Def Jam Vendetta, Manny beckons him back into the circuit, after losing a lot of bets. At first he returns to help his friend, but later he has his eyes set on earning back everything he lost. After the defeat of D-Mob, he and Angel leaves the arena and possibly the circuit for good.

  • Interestingly, Proof may be the actual one true protagonist in Def Jam Vendetta, as in an intro cutscene of the game, he is seen ready to fight the trio of Pockets, House & Snowman in the only handicap match as the player eventually would in the game's story mode. Despite this, it is all still just speculation.
    • Considering the Def Jam game series features a high volume of black characters all throughout, combined with the fact that Proof is the only black protagonist of the default four in Vendetta, may lend some credence to this speculation.
    • Despite all of this, he still shares the exact same story with Briggs, Spider & Tank in Vendetta.
  • Proof, along with the other protagonists in Vendetta, are the only characters to have two intros and victory outros.
  • Might Be A Coincidence, But there's a actual rapper with the same name as him.
  • Proof's name appears in the highscores on Def Jam Fight For NY.
    • His front blazin' move is unlockable in story mode. There it's named "Over and Out".
