*** But he's not the '''ONLY''' one...
** [[BigBad Conal Cochran]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO]] of Silver Shamrock Novelties, a company known for its Halloween masks, which it shipped all over the United States. Cochran had built these masks with a computer chip made from a fragment of Stonehenge. When Silver Shamrock's commercial would air on Halloween night, the chip was to unleash a lethal swarm of insects and snakes, killing the wearer and anyone in the immediate vicinity. Cochran is shown demonstrating how these masks work on an innocent family, causing them to be poisoned and eaten. His plan is to [[WouldHurtAChild kill thousands of children]] all over the country, partially to bring back the darker aspects of the Celtic festival Samhain, which he connects to witchcraft, but also just because he considers this [[ObviouslyEvil mass murder to be a fun joke]], the best ever in fact, because it's a joke on the children.
** In the theatrical cut, [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr. Terrence Wynn]] is revealed to be as monstrous as Michael himself. Wynn uses the ancient {{Cult}} of Thorn as a front for his experiments, using Michael's DNA to create evil in its purest form by impregnating female patients of Smith's Grove Sanitarium with Michael's DNA, most resulting in stillbirths. It is also discovered Wynn helped mentor Michael into being the killer he is today, and helped him escape in the [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} first movie]]. In the [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers previous movie]], Wynn followed Michael in his killing spree, and [[CopKiller blew up a police station]] before abducting Michael's niece Jamie and escaping with Michael. After Jamie successfully births a new baby, Steven, Wynn plans on making Steven the next cycle of evil, and even forms a fascination with Danny Strode, trying to get him to become a killer too.

** In the original, Michael Myers quizzically tilting his head while looking at his kill, who is pinned to the wall with a large knife. The shadows and heavy breathing make it an iconic, creepy moment.

** In the original, Michael Myers quizzically tilting his head while looking at his kill, who is pinned to the wall with a large knife. The shadows and heavy breathing make it an iconic, creepy moment. Michael's white mask emerging from the darkness as he's about to slash Jamie is also an unforgettable moment.

* CrossoverShip: A non-romantic example. Alot of fan art portrays Michael as close friends with [[TrickRTreat Sam]].

* SignatureScene:
** In the original, Michael Myers quizzically tilting his head while looking at his kill, who is pinned to the wall with a large knife. The shadows and heavy breathing make it an iconic, creepy moment.
** In the second film, Michael Myers has a similar moment by lifting a nurse she stabbed in the back just by '''the handle of a scalpel'''. Same head tilt, same curious disposition. The scene is even redone in ''H20''.



* UncannyValley: The original Michael Myers Halloween mask was a Creator/WilliamShatner mask, spraypainted white and with the hair frizzed out and eyeholes altered. The effect is downright creepy.

* YouLookFamiliar: In 2009's ''H2'', the actor who gets stomped to death behind the strip club later turns up as the green-faced host of the big Halloween party.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Michael Myers]] in the [[Film/{{Halloween|1978}} original]] [[Film/{{Halloween II|1981}} films]] is a cold-blooded SerialKiller with a hatred of teenage sexuality and a [[KnifeNut fondness for carving knives]]. After killing his sister [[EnfantTerrible at the age of six]], [[TheSociopath Michael]] breaks out of prison as an adult and goes on a killing spree through his hometown of Haddonfield, on his way to kill his surviving sister, murdering three of her friends before targeting her. He's stopped, but the horror doesn't end there, as in the ''Film/{{H|alloweenH20TwentyYearsLater}}20'' [[Film/HalloweenResurrection timeline]], after tracking Laurie down, he fakes his death by switching places with a paramedic--after crushing said paramedic's larynx so he couldn't cry outócausing the paramedic to get killed in his place by Laurie. Michael then tracks Laurie down in an insane asylum, and later kills people filming a reality TV show in his house a year after his goal was seemingly complete. [[LackOfEmpathy Incapable of feeling empathy]], and driven by a loathing of seemingly everybody he encounters, the unstoppable and perpetually silent Michael helped to define the SlasherMovie as we know it, and remains one of the most bone-chillingly evil slasher villains.

He's stopped, but the horror doesn't end there, as the series spits into two timelines. In both of them Michael returns repeatedly, making numerous attempts on Laurie, her daughter Jaime, and anybody else who gets in his way. In [[Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers Jamie's]] [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers timeline]], he finally [[Film/HalloweenTheCurseOfMichaelMyers kills Jamie]] and then [[WouldHurtAChild targets her newborn baby]] [[note]] Who is believed to be [[LukeIAmYourFather his own son]], [[ChildByRape born from the rape]] of his niece [[/note]] In that same movie, it was initially believed he was [[DemotedToDragon under the control of an evil cult]], but he proves his evil is [[DragonInChief beyond anyone's control]] when he massacres them too. In the ''[[Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater H20]]'' [[Film/HalloweenResurrection timeline]], after tracking Laurie down, he fakes his death by switching places with a paramedic, who was killed in his place by Laurie, before tracking Laurie down in an insane asylum, and later kills people filming a reality TV show in his house a year after his goal was seemingly complete.
