Ben is the protagonist of the game and the only playable character. He has a long black suave haircut, and a graying face of stubble, showing his age. Ben is the leader of the Polecats and rides a Corley Motors Chopper. He's voiced by the late Roy Conrad.

- Although not revealed during gameplay, Ben's last name can be found on concept art and sketches.
- Ben's brother is Hoagie from Day of the Tentacle. Ben's full name is Ruben, their mother named them both after a sandwich.
