|“||Solving the following riddle will reveal the awful secret behind the universe, assuming you do not go utterly mad in the attempt. If you already happen to know the awful secret behind the universe, feel free to skip ahead.||„|
"David Wong" (real name unknown) is the main protagonist and narrator of John Dies at the End.
After his friend John drags him into the world of the paranormal after a night of partying gone wrong, Dave finds himself being forced into a heroic role he'd really rather not take.
He took the pseudonym David Wong because, as he claims, Wong is the most common surname in the world.

Powers and Abilities: Awareness of supernatural phenomena and creatures, access to a wide variety of weapons and objects suited to dealing with demons, ghosts, and similar beings, Soy Sauce grants him a varying combination of Clairvoyance, Precognition, Time Manipulation, Stopping, and Travel, Astral Projection, Enhanced Senses, vastly increased processing speed / intelligence for a varying amount of time, Reality Warping with the Furgun (It fires whatever he imagines).
Attack Potency: Human level (Despite his experience, Dave repeatedly admits to being out of shape and poorly physically equipped to deal with what he does). At least Wall level with weapons (Has access to many weapons, such as firearms, explosives, and chainsaws). Unknown with the Furgun (Destroyed an army of Shadow Men with no difficulty whatsoever)

Standard Equipment: Assorted objects suited to dealing with supernatural creatures (such as Testamints [breath mints with bible verses written on them] and a stereo), firearms, melee weapons, the Furgun, and Soy Sauce.
Intelligence: Around average under normal circumstances, though he is fairly well-versed (by most people's standards, anyways) when it comes to the supernatural. When under the influence of Soy Sauce, Dave's intelligence increases exponentially, enough that he is able to construct a complex bomb and flamethrower from household objects and determine things and predict the future based on minute, imperceptible changes in someone's expressions and voice, among other things - when talking with a police officer, he was able to determine a wide variety of facts regarding the officer's personal life, recent occurrences, and the case he was investigating (such as his personal hero, family, religious beliefs, how he had spent the past day and what he was thinking, and how every person who had died the night before died) based on his voice and expressions alone.
Weaknesses: Soy Sauce is very scarce, its effects vary and tend to be uncontrollable and the most beneficial ones wear off in a couple hours, and taking too much of it can have lethal effects.
