During the Tribute Parade, he and Foxface wore shiny and flashy silver costumes that represent District 5's main export, power and electricity. For the interviews with Caesar Flickerman, he wore a pink suit. When Foxface has her interview with Caesar Flickerman, the District 5 male's face is shown on the screen behind along with Foxface.
The District 5 male died in the initial bloodbath. The District 5 male was stationed next on the right of the District 4 boy on the pedestals. When the games begin, he is one of the many tributes to run towards the Cornucopia for weapons and supplies. He targeted the District 3 girl because he wanted to take her black backpack. He wrapped his arms around the tribute and prevented the District 3 female from fleeing the bloodbath for a while. She managed to get out of his grip but fell onto the floor doing so. The District 5 male then grabbed a sickle off the floor near where Clove was looking through a backpack for knives and when the District 3 girl got halfway up, he used it to slash at her head, killing her. He then took the tribute's black backpack, fleeing into the Cornucopia after seeing Cato see him. The District 5 male attacked the District 7 girl by swinging his black backpack at her. He was nearly killed by the District 7 boy, the District 7 female's district partner, until the tribute forgot about him and confronted Thresh. He crawled away from the battle, leaving his black backpack. He and the District 6 male have a brief fight in which the District 6 male strangles him with his bare hands. The District 5 male manages to gain the upper hand inside the Cornucopia. He uses both of his hands to grab the District 6 male by the throat and hurls him into crates, injuring him. Glimmer, the District 1 female tribute, attacks him by pinning him onto a crate and immediately stabs him in the abdomen with a knife killing him. Allowing the District 6 male to grab a sword and attempt to kill Glimmer. The District 6 male is then tripped and slashed to death by Cato. When the cannons fired and Claudius Templesmith and Caesar Flickerman are shown talking, his portrait shows that before his death, the District 5 male tribute had spent 13 seconds in the Games before he died. At night, his portrait isn't shown but is presumed to have been.
After his death, the District 5 male, like all the other dead tributes, had his DNA mixed with a wolf to form a muttation which had similar characteristics to the fallen tribute. It's unknown if his mutt survived the fight.
In the film, he weighs 145 pounds and is 15 years old.
In the arena, the color jacket he wore was plum red.
His death appears in the special features of the DVD.
In traning, his odds of winning were 8-1, he scored higher than Thresh but died earlier.
The District 5 male is shown to survive for only 13 seconds, despite appearing to kill the District 3 female (who survived for more that twice than his time). The photo credits showing the statistics appears to be the District 10 male, who survived the bloodbath. He placed second last in the film.
The unnamed District 5 male can be considered very powerful for an unnamed tribute as he does some damage to other tributes and even kills the District 3 female (disputed, since he died much earlier than the District 3 female).
