Tribute Parade

In the film, the boy from District 8 was first seen in the Tribute Parade with his district partner, riding in the chariots, wearing blue and pink costumes with star patterns and hats with present bows representing textile clothing.


In the film, he stood behind Peeta as Atala is explaining the training center rules. During training, he was shown struggling to climb the jungle gym, until he fell and hurt his leg. On the scoreboards, his odds of winning were shown to be 3-1.


In the film, he and his district partner are shown to be absent along with his District partner, District 3 female, District 9 male, female and District 10 female.

Cornucopia bloodbath

Marvel repeatedly stabs the District 8 male.

The District 8 male was killed in the initial Cornucopia bloodbath, forced to wear a leg cast from his injury during training. Like most of the other tributes, he fought for supplies. He runs halfway until spotting a small knife, he grabs it and tries to attack Marvel, who managed to disarm him, slash his throath and knock him to the ground, eventually stabbing him repeatedly with a knife, effectively killing him, and his face is the 5th seen by Katniss on the first night of the games.  Muttation After his death, the male tribute from District 8, like all the other fallen tributes, had his DNA mixed with a wolf to form a muttation which had similar characteristics to the fallen tribute. It is unknown if his mutt survived the fight.
