Leatherface

Leatherface is the main antagonist of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, even though he commits his murders alongside his family. Leatherface wears a mask made of human skin, which is where he gets his name from. Leatherface was reportedly based off of Wisconsin killer Ed Gein, who also wore a mask made from skin. In the movies, Leatherface’s main weapons are a chainsaw and a sledgehammer and, as well as murdering his victims, Leatherface was a cannibal and would eat them too. Director Tobe Hooper has noted that Leatherface kills out of fear, rather than malice.

Leatherface, portrayed by Gunnar Hansen in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), is 6 foot 4 inches (1.93 m) tall.
