Main Characters

    Rick Taylor 

Rick Taylor
"What have you done to me? What am I? What am I!?"

Voiced by: Josh Keaton (2010 remake)

The main hero, an everyday man forced to wear the demonic Terror Mask to face the forces of evil and save his girlfriend and, in the third title, his son.

  • An Arm and a Leg: In the first chapter of the remake, a teratoid rips off one of Rick's arms. This is initially played straight with Rick freaking out over his lost limb, then Played for Laughs and subverted as the Terror Mask calls him a pussy before growing a new one for him.
  • Ax-Crazy: Subverted; Rick isn't unhinged or even outright crazy, and although he is really vengeful and violent towards the monsters the he faces (with the Mask even revealing that he secretly enjoys killing demons and monsters), he isn't NEARLY as bad as the Mask is.
  • Bald of Awesome: He loses his hair when he has the Mask on. In the remake, he retains it.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Fits him to a T, especially in the remake. He is Lovecraftian Superpower embodied, but all he wants is to save the world and rescue his girlfriend.
  • Berserk Button: He hates it when the Mask talks. He gets so annoyed at him for doing so and tells him to, "shut the fuck up."
  • The Berserker: He has no qualms in killing things that get in his way (which is understandable, given that, well, you know, THEY attacked first) and it really shows in the remake where he is killing left and right and his body repeatedly becomes heavily mutilated with his muscles being torn and his bones and innards being exposed, but he really doesn't seem to mind because he is hellbent on saving his fiance. This is really shown when he transforms into Berserk Mode (although the ladder instance is actually the Terror Mask taking over briefly).
  • Berserk Mode: The name of a transformation he takes when he has bone spikes sprouting out of his body and uses them as blades.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Even disregarding the Mask's comments, Rick does kill his opponents in shockingly gruesome ways.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: When in Berserk Mode or using Splatter Slash in the remake, he has two bone blades protruding from his arms, and skill upgrades can make them bigger.
  • Blood Knight: According to the Terror Mask, anyway. Rick does seem to silently enjoy fighting monsters though.
  • Body Horror: As his body actually Shows Damage he can often run around with missing chunks of flesh and exposed bones. And of course, the mask-induced transformation in all games.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Rick turns into a giant hulking monster while wearing the Terror Mask, but is still one of the most heroic and noble characters in the game.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not along the same lines or as often as the Terror Mask, but it's there.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: And sometimes knocks Cthulhu out with a 2x4, or with his own severed arm while he's at it.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Rick is truly barefoot in every game except for the remake.
  • Doom Magnet: Becomes this, due to the Terror Mask. The second game ends with Rick noting that evil will never go away until the Terror Mask does. Sometime after marrying and having a child with Jennifer, both of them are targeted in the third game and will die should you not complete the levels in time. The Terror Mask itself gets in on the action as well.
  • Evil Feels Good: The Terror Mask accuses him of liking the powers it gives Rick, and how he enjoys slaughtering demons. Rick tries to deny this at first, and while he doesn't admit it, he notably stops trying to.
  • The Faceless: In the original trilogy, the only time we ever get a good look of his face is during the Fatal Family Photo in the worst ending of Splatterhouse 3. The remake on the other hand averts this by having a few scenes of him and Jennifer together before the events of the game.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: The Ram move in the remake.
  • Gentle Giant: Of course, his drive to protect his loved ones is what makes him so badass.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Good god, does Nice Guy Rick not hold anything back. Especially with the Splatter Kills in the remake.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Among the weapons that Rick can use include dismembered enemy arms and heads, and one of his throws involves spinning an enemy around to clear an area. This turns Up to Eleven when Rick can use his own dismembered arms to kill enemies.
  • Heroic Build: Bestowed upon him by the Terror Mask alongside the Super Strength
  • Hockey Mask and Chainsaw: Back when the Terror Mask was a hockey mask, Rick pulled off the look very well.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Pre-transformation, Rick fits squarely into this. Bonus points for keeping that dweeby-voice afterwards.
  • Horrifying Hero: Wears a mask of unspeakable power and that allows him to transform his bones into blades, but he is still The Hero of the story.
  • Hidden Depths: In the remake the Mask often states that Rick actually enjoys slaughtering and maiming his foes. Due to being able to peer into his mind, it also brings up several things that Rick would rather not mention.
  • I Am a Monster: Rick is initially horrified at what he becomes when the Mask transforms him. This is later used by Dr. West, claiming that Jennifer would never love Rick for what the Terror Mask made him into.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: His appearance is based off of one of the original composers, Howard Drossin.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: Only in the third game and the remake. Prior to those, the Terror Mask just gave Rick Super Strength. Afterwards, he gains some distinctly more monstrous powers.
    • Bad with the Bone: In the remake, he can extend his bones through his flesh to form vicious blades. He primarily does so by turning his arms into bone-swords, but he also has a Shockwave Stomp attack that causes bones to stab down from his foot and then rip up from the ground to impale his enemies.
    • Combat Tentacles: In the third game, in his Super Mode, he can extend shapeless "fists" of flesh from his torso as a super-attack. In the remake, he has the ability to turn his arms into tentacles for increased range
    • Feel No Pain: Remake Rick can fight on with massive gaping wounds in his body, completely unbothered by broken ribs, exposed organs or shredded muscles.
    • Heal Thy Self: In the remake, he can absorb the blood of his slain victims to regenerate his own wounds.
    • Super Mode: Called Mutant Rick in the third game, where it causes the Terror Mask to visibly fuse to his skin, bulks him up, and gives him clawed fingers. In the remake, it's called Berserk Mode and gives him access to more powerful attacks whilst covering him in bone-based Spikes Of Evil.
    • Temporary Bulk Change: In the third game, activating his Super Mode buffs him up considerably, whilst in the remake, putting on the Terror Mask turned him from a shrimpy Hollywood Nerd into an Adonis.
  • Magic Pants: In the remake and 3. His clothes gets torn to shreds during his transformation, yet his jeans remains fairly intact. His shirt in part 3 also somehow reappears on his torso when Rick returns to normal.
  • Metalhead: He and his girlfriend are. Before it was ripped off, he came into the mansion wearing a Mastodon shirt.
  • Nice Guy: To Jennifer, at least. Though in the remake, the Mask insinuates that under all his niceness, Rick likes maiming and killing demons.
  • Painful Transformation: Rick was dying when he puts on the Terror Mask. The Terror Mask then starts to forcefully shove Rick's pooling blood and intestines back into his body, enlarge his arms and chest and breaks his leg before fixing it. All while Rick is screaming in agony.
    Terror Mask: Aww, quit whining. Did I say it was going to be fun?
  • Papa Wolf: In the third game, one of the main objectives is to rescue his son.
  • Power Incontinence: In the remake, the justification for needing to upgrade himself is that his body is incapable of handling the mask's full power initially.
  • Roaring Rampageof Revenge/Rescue: In the first game when Jennifer turns into a monster Rick is hell bent on revenge, But really the main goal in all the games is to rescue her which Rick goes on a rampage just to save her.
  • Super Strength: He can rip and tear various monsters apart with nothing but his bare hands. The remake makes the sheer scale of his strength more obvious.
  • Shockwave Stomp: His charge attacks in the remake can do this. He even has "bone" versions.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: In the remake, Rick's eyes glow yellow when he puts the Mask on.
  • Tranquil Fury: Throughout the games, Rick rarely speaks and aside from a couple of Cluster F Bombs and a few lines of dialogue, he rarely exhibits any emotion. Usually, he uses the Terror Mask for that.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In the reboot, presumably due to Rick's lack of real fighting experience, his body movement employs a lot of wild waving when punching. Thanks to the Terror Mask, however, his strength more than makes up for his lack of finesse.
  • Unstoppable Rage: The plot of every game (barring Wanpaku Graffiti) amounts to, "someone has endangered one of Rick's loved ones; Rick horribly mutilates everything between where he is and where they are". But during the game where you tear apart monsters and demons Rick is visibly enraged and very angry especially when transforming into Berserk Mode.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Although this can be excused, as it was an accident and he didn't realize what was happening, Rick is revealed during [[Phase 10: The Wicker Bride]] to have been the one that caused West's Start of Darkness, killing what the good doctor THOUGHT was his own wife before his very eyes.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Despite being inhumanly large, muscular and able to rip enemies apart with his bare hands, he still has that nerdy-sounding voice.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In the third game as Mutant Rick and all throughout the remake.

     The Terror Mask 

Terror Mask
"She doesn't have to die."

Voiced by: Jim Cummings (1952)(2010 remake)

An ancient Aztec/Mayan artifact of great power, which turns the user into a powerful warrior. The mask provides Rick the strength needed to complete his quest, but is quite sinister on his own and eventually tries to kill Rick and Take Over the World, but is destroyed. In the Remake the mask has a new personality, and wants to get revenge on the Corrupted for what they did to it.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the original series, it wants to take over the world, and is using Rick for that end. In the remake, while proudly Ax-Crazy and prone to deliberately antagonize Rick, its implied goal is to destroy the Corrupted for killing the Aztecs that it personally protected. That said, it still lies or uses half-truths in its likely centuries-long gambit to accomplish their goals.
  • Anti-Villain: In the remake, despite being a destructive and threatening force with blood on its wearers' hands, it actually hardly makes Rick do anything evil outside of having an involvement in Lenora's death and comes across as a Noble Demon at worst.
  • Ax-Crazy: Especially in the remake. It whoops and hollers in excitement with the more monsters you kill.
  • Artifact of Doom: A sentient Aztec mask that gives its wearer immense strength and Lovecraftian Superpower and in the original games was Evil All Along. Though this is played with in the remake, as it turns out that the Mask was a benign protector of the Aztecs until the Corrupted came along.
  • As Long as There is Evil: Its final speech in the third game on any bad ending route after you defeat it.
  • Batman Gambit: In the remake, it uses both Rick and (heavily implied) Dr. West into one spanning space and time to take vengeance on the Corrupted.
  • Blasphemous Boast: When they first meet, the Mask compares itself to God in the remake. Considering its origins, it's not entirely wrong, so this is a downplayed example. It backpedals to clarify that it's not the God, but it is the only one that's going to help Rick for the time being.
  • Blood Knight: More exemplified in the remake as well as justified, since it runs off The Power of Blood.
  • Cool Mask/Evil Mask: It is one. It is a mask capable of healing mortal wounds and then using its host's own body as a weapon.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: A variation. Lets be honest, given the threats that they pose to the world, and the fact that Rick is a Nice Guy and that they BOTH have understandable (justified in Rick's case) reasons to be against both Dr. West and The Corrupted, things would have probably gone MUCH more smoothly for both if the Mask just came clean about it's plan to Rick right from the get-go.
  • Dark Is Not Evil/ Dark Is Evil: Subverted in the original trilogy, where the Mask reveals itself to have been Evil All Along, but played straight in the remake, where, despite being an Artifact of Doom that transforms Rick into a monstrosity, and a lust for blood and violence, its intentions are benevolent.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When it isn't being a Large Ham, the Terror Mask has quite a dry sense of humor.
    I ain't your mama, asshole!
  • Demonic Possession: A gameplay mechanic. Whenever Rick goes into Berserk Mode, the Terror Mask briefly takes over to cause as much mayhem as it can until its meter depletes.
  • Derivative Differentiation: It originally looked like Jason Voorhees' iconic hockey mask (to the point the mask was made red in censored rereleases of the first game), but became more skull-like in 2. 3 brought back some of the hockey mask traits (the indentations around the mouth) and the general appearance of that incarnation carried over into the reboot (albeit made of bone).
  • The Dreaded: Dr. West is noticeably terrified when he sees Rick wearing the Terror Mask. And in Splatterhouse 2, three Mooks choose to be killed by Bellyache than fight Rick. What does that tell you about the Terror Mask?
  • Evil All Along: P Layed straight in the original series. Although it isn't as bad as in the remake, cut dialogue for the final boss fight actually had it reveal itself to be allied with the Corrupted. When Rick refuses its We Can Rule Together offer and kills the monster in this version, the Mask begins to speak of its other plans...
  • Fate Worse than Death: It views itself being enslaved by the Corrupted for eternity as this.
  • Final Boss: The Terror Mask itself is the final enemy Rick has to face in the original trilogy.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Seems to know that it is in a video game; as it will often reference past games and at times acknowledge the player themselves in the remake. Fully comes to a head during the last encounter with the Biggy Man.
  • Game-Over Man: Usually has a quick quip whenever Rick is killed. One of these is directed at the player, telling them to hurry up and select continue.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: At least, according to the Terror Mask in the beginning of the remake.
  • It's Personal: Brings the Corrupted to Earth so it could kill it for itself.
    I want vengeance for an eternity of agony. I want the Corrupted to know that it was ME who stopped them!
  • Jerkass: In the remake, makes a habit of being as annoying as possible to Rick many a times whenever it speaks. Many of its jokes are at his expense, and he mocks Rick for his perceived cowardice and wimpy demeanor. At one point, it starts to mock Jen's cries for help, just to piss Rick off.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: However despite it's annoying banter, it at least doesn't fall back on its promises and is still perfectly willing to help Rick save his girlfriend, even if it taunts him about it along the way.
  • Kick the Dog: Verbally abuses Rick by calling him a pussy and mocks Jennifer's cries for no other reason than to rile him up. What's more shocking though is that the Terror Mask was kicked by the Corrupted, which destroyed the Aztec civilization it ruled over. This being after serving them for an unknown length of time as a slave on top of that.
  • Light Is Not Good: It's a white mask made from bone, and Henry West attributes his voice to one of "an angel" to encourage him on his journey. A cut subplot from the game also has the man who found the Terror Mask, Francisco Miguel Cortez, say that he could see "the faces of angels" beneath the surface of the sarcophagus he found it in. He also explicitly compares himself to God (or just a God) when he first meets Rick.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: It inflicts heavy Body Horror on its host and grants them a Lovecraftian Superpower, but it ultimately opposes greater evil. Subverted in the third game, where it was revealed that it was using Rick all along to try and Take Over the World.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Its death after Rick defeats it at the end of Splatterhouse 3.
  • Made a Slave: The reason why it knows of the Corrupted so much.
  • Manipulative Bastard:
    • In the remake, why was it that it needed Rick? It wanted Rick to bring the Corrupted to Earth so the Mask could kill it personally. It had Rick kill ten thousand monsters over the course of his adventure to open the gates of Hell with their souls, so the Corrupted would be already weakened by being made out of already injured corpses. Unfortunately, the Terror Mask did not foresee the Corrupted possessing Jennifer.
    • It's also implied that it's the Mask that is the one that set it up so that Rick and Dr. West would cross paths. Dr. West describes that the first words he hears after Rick kills his wife in the Stable Time Loop were "She doesn't have to die".
    • And that's still saying nothing about the Mask from the trilogy, where it had Rick kill its competition so that it unleash hell on Earth itself.
  • Mask of Power: It is the source of all of Rick's powers, and without it, Rick would have bled to death at the beginning of the remake.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast:
    • The Terror Mask. Considering its powers and its personality, it's not the worst description.
    • Its original name, the Hell Mask, also fits into this neatly.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Its plan to stop the Corrupted works, at the cost of Jennifer being possessed. But maybe that was all according to plan...
  • Noble Demon: In the remake, the Mask is still an Artifact of Doom that loves to see things suffer. Then it is revealed that the reason why it is helping Rick, that while still selfish, is rather noble. It is using Rick as part of his Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the Corrupted for two reasons. One, for the Corrupted enslaving it for eternity. And the second, for killing the Aztec tribe that it was benevolently protecting.
  • Not So Different: The Terror Mask tries to invoke this frequently, telling Rick that he loves killing the demons as much as it does, although...
  • Not So Similar: It's pretty obvious that Rick is a FAR better person than the Mask could ever hope to be.
  • Oh, Crap!: In the remake when encountering Biggy Man.
    Terror Mask: Wait wait wait, I know this guy! ... yeah we are screwed...
  • One-Winged Angel: In Splatterhouse 3, the mask gains its own form during the Battle in the Center of the Mind. While it never fights Rick in the remake, the mask uses its appearance to block off exits until he kills all the enemies in an area.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: While Rick starts freaking out over his arm being torn off for the first time, the Terror Mask takes the time to scoff and mock him over it before growing him another.
    For a Dick, you are such a pussy.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite its Jerkass exterior, it can sometimes be genuinely more cooperative with Rick, encouraging him to rescue Jennifer without verbally mocking him.
  • The Power of Blood: You can upgrade its abilities by spilling blood.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The Mask from the third game had its body outlined by a red light, along with its eyes. In Rick's fight against it, it also has red eyes.
  • Revenge: Its main goal against the Corrupted. Specifically, it wants revenge both for enslaving it for eons, and killing all the people it had protected.
  • Sadist: Encourages Rick to completely slaughter his enemies has he saves Jennifer.
    Hey — want to see what your spine looks like!?
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Though the actual extent of its evilness depends on the game.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: In the remake, he throws around curses like there's no tomorrow.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: It is a mask in the shape of a grinning skull, making it a living example of this trope.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: He's a self-proclaimed god with quite a vocabulary.
    Who am I? Let's just say I'm god. Your god; well at least, the only god's who's listening right now. What do I want? Ah, same with any god: a little faith. For without faith, I am nothing, and without me, YOU'RE FUCKED.
  • Start X to Stop X: Its means of destroying the Corrupted? To give it enough sacrifices for it to form on earth, with the battered bodies of enemies that Rick killed to weaken it.
  • Take Over the World: Its ultimate goal in the third game.
  • Telepath: Communicates to Rick this way, while also being able to peer into Rick's thoughts and memories. It makes sure to remind Rick of that.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: When Rick encounters the Biggy Man in the Meat Factory, the Terror Mask has a bad feeling about it.
  • Vampiric Draining: In the remake, it can telekinetically drain blood from enemies to heal its host body.

    Jennifer Willis 

Jennifer Willis
"I want us to be together until the end of the world."

Voiced by: Shanelle Gray (2010 remake)

Rick's girlfriend, kidnapped by the evil forces of the House. She was turned into a monster and killed in the first game, brought back from hell in the second and saved again in the third. In the Remake, Rick must save her from West, who wants to sacrifice her to the Corrupted.

  • And I Must Scream: Her soul was trapped in Hell after Rick is forced to kill her, until he ultimately saves her in the second game.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In the remake, she wears a small baseball shirt that barely reaches her belly button.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Possessed Jennifer at the end of the remake.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: A unique instance where one person invokes all three! Her photos that she leaves behind in the remake show that she enjoys coloring her hair frequently!
  • Damsel out of Distress: Invoked but then subverted in the remake. When she was given the chance, she quickly grabs a dagger and stabs Dr. West in the head with it. Normally, this would kill someone, except unfortunately for Jen, West is no longer human/mortal.
  • Distressed Damsel: A reoccurring theme among each of the titles.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: In the original Splatterhouse and the sequel, Splatterhouse 2, she was clearly bare foot, along with being in a tattered attire. In Splatterhouse 3 and the remake, she is not.
  • '80s Hair: Especially in Splatterhouse 2 where her hair reaches down to her hips.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: In the original series, she had red hair. She has blonde hair in the remake.
  • Identical Stranger: In the Remake, Dr. West chose her because she's identical to his deceased wife Leonora.
  • Ms. Fanservice: In the remake, especially considering that the player can collect photos of her being topless.
  • Nice Girl: She is in the remake, at least. People criticize her for dating Rick because he's "too nerdy", but she doesn't care one bit.
  • Nightmare Face: She pulls a vicious one off if the timer reaches 0:00 in the second level of Splatterhouse 3, when she's being devoured by the Boreworm.
  • Replacement Goldfish: West kidnaps Jennifer because she resembles his lost love, invoking this at first. Turns out to be a subversion, he's trying to bring back his wife through Jennifer's body.
  • Tragic Monster: In the first game, she was turned into a monster and Rick was forced to put her down, leading to his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.


    Dr. West 

Dr. Henry West
"Tonight, God willing, I will join her."

Voiced by: Richard Doyle (2010 remake)

A Mad Scientist and unseen owner of the West Mansion where the game takes place. In the Remake, he kidnaps Jen for a sacrifice to the Corrupted in order to resurrect his dead wife Leonora.

    The Biggy Man 

Piggy Man (a.k.a. the Biggy Man)

The most popular monster in the game, Piggy Man is a large humanoid with chainsaws for hands that guards the mansion. In the Remake, he's fought by Rick in the Meat Factory in the future New York.

  • Adaptational Badass: He was merely a very difficult boss in the original game. In the remake, he can force lights on and off, which allows him to teleport.
  • Body Horror: Has some nasty looking growths and missing skin across his body. Not to mention his hands.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: He has a chainsaw on each arm.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: The reason why he became the "Biggy Man" in the 2010 version.
  • Breakout Villain: The reason he was included in the Remake was due to his popularity with the fanbase, with the remake giving him a significant amount of buildup before you fight him, and his fight features quite a bit of spectacle.
  • The Brute
  • Chainsaw Good: Two serving as a Blade Below the Shoulder on each arm.
  • The Dreaded: In the 2010 game, the Terror Mask reacts with surprise at seeing him again... Before expressing that he and Rick are screwed.
  • The Faceless: Is covered by a sack. In the remake, it shows the eyes.
  • Fat Bastard/Stout Strength: In the remake. In fact, early concept shows he was going to be fatter.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: In the first game. The remake hints at his presence several times during the fourth level.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Rick kills him by ripping one of his blades and shoving it into his intestines.
  • Humanoid Abomination: It's not really known just how far different it is from humanity due to being mostly obscured by a mask, but it is considerably tall and strong, with chainsaws for hands and two yellow eyes.
  • It Can Think: As Dr. West notes in the 2010 version, it has a primitive but cunning intelligence, even getting Dr. West caught in one of it's traps on one occasion. It also named itself.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Piggy Man's name was mistranslated "Biggy Man" in Turbo Play's strategy guide for the TG16 version. The name "Biggy Man" was used in fan sites to identify the character and the spelling eventually made its way into the 2010 version of Splatterhouse.
  • That One Boss: Lampshaded as an In-Universe Mythology Gag, as the Terror Mask claims that it knows the Biggy Man... then simply says that Rick is screwed.
  • Villain Teleportation: In the 2010 game, he's shown to have this ability, often accompanied by the lights turning on or off. He can also use it to escape Splatter Kills up to three times.

    Hell Chaos 

Hell Chaos

Voiced by: Kyle McCarley (High Score Girl, English), Sascha Krüger (High Score Girl, German), David Camarillo (High Score Girl, Latin American Spanish), Rafa Calvo (High Score Girl, European Spanish)

The final enemy in the first game, Hell Chaos is a rotten giant who comes out of a grave to kill Rick near the end of the game. It is speculated that this monster is actually Dr West's mutated corpse.

    Ultimate Evil 

Ultimate Evil

An eldritch beast from the Void who was accidentally released by Rick when he opened the portal. It's fought by Rick in the woods just outside of the Mueller Mansion.

    The Evil One 

The Evil One

Leader of the demons of the Void, he's the Big Bad of the original series. In the third game, he tries to use the Dark Stone to become invincible and conquer the world, but Rick completely crushes his ambition.

  • Big Bad: Of the original series. Though the Terror Mask is Rick's last obstacle.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appears as an Advancing Wall of Doom in the second game, and becomes a boss in the next one.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Resembles a blue outline of a giant humanoid.
  • Kick the Dog: He delivers one should Rick fail to save Jennifer:
    The Evil One: Rick... you will suffer, you will die! Just like your precious wife.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is bright blue, with glowing red insides.
  • Shock and Awe: The Uses electricity to attack.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Its means of getting the Dark Stone involves using Rick's son David as a sacrifice, ahd has absolutely no remorse in doing do.

    The Overlord 

The Overlord

The leader of the Corrupted, he's the first of them to step in the material realm. However, the Mask forces him to possess the various corpses of the weak enemies slaughtered along the way, allowing Rick to destroy it soundly. This backfires when the overlord's essence possesses Jennifer.

  • Demonic Possession: He needs to inhabit bodies so that he can have a physical form. The Terror Mask takes advantage of that, by destroying those bodies before it has the chance.
  • Eldritch Abomination
  • Evil Is Visceral
  • Mook Maker: During his slow march, corpses of previous enemies will fall from his body and become alive.


How well does it match the trope?
