* LonelyPianoPiece: ''DeadIsland'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZqrG1bdGtg infamously]]. Its sequel ''Dead Island: Riptide'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEmXLn7mSM8 had its own as well.]] The game itself uses it a LOT (one piece plays at the lifeguard tower which serves as a hub early in the game).

** ''Dead Island: Definitive Edition'' once again makes him an incredibly challenging bonus boss. His ability to kill you in one hit has been restored, and now he can only be damaged with critical hits.



** ''Dead Island Definitive Edition'' turns some storyline enemies into KingMook bosses, similar to the named enemies found in ''Dead Island Riptide''. They can be identified by the skull next to their health bar, and have more health than regular versions of that enemy type.
