What killer do you think is the most sadistic?

Karao_KeKarao_Ke Member Posts: 1,217

Contrary to my last discussion on mercy, which killer do you feel like would be the most likely to drag out your death & enjoy it? Once again, you can use lore to sway your decision but I'd prefer opinions.

Lore wise, Doctor is the obvious choice. Opinion wise, I'd say Pyramid Head, Deathslinger & Frank. There's a couple other killers I also think are sadistic, but for the sake of time, I'm just going to choose 3.

Pyramid Head - His mori is brutal & it's even mentioned in his description that he's sadistic. No doubt he doesn't mind giving out his "punishment".

Deathslinger - You cannot tell me he doesn't enjoy reeling in his victims.

Frank - Think of death by a thousand cuts because I feel like he'd do something like that.

What do you guys think?

    Pyramid Head was born from guilt and desire, while Doctor just woke up one morning and said "I'm going to torture people!". Not denying that PH is sadistic, but Doctor did everything because he wanted to. He's a really evil person.

    Doctor or Freddy I would think.

    The Doctor is pretty well explained by everyone else here, so I won't belabor it further.

    Freddy is a demon born of the soul of a child murderer. I am not real familiar with reboot Freddy, Robert Englund was my Freddy, and always will be, but unless they made some wild departures from the source material, Freddy tortured children and threw the remains in the boiler, until he was caught and fed to it as well. His rage, and desire for blood of Innocents lead to him becoming the dream demon we know and fear. The only other thing I feel adds to my argument here is watch Nightmare on Elm street 3. That's sadism.

    The clown sucks fingers #########.

    The Doctor laughs.

    The witch eats his heart.

    Deathslinger kicks them yeah is very rude XD.

    Ghostface looks like he enjoy it and mocks take it a photo.

    And the hit that bubba gives them in the head before use the chainsaw uff XD.

    Also how huntress throws the axe in their face is very sadistic for me.

    The nurse strokes their faces she looks like her enjoy too.

    For me the most sadistic is the witch because the clown is rather sick XD

    Just reading ghost face's backstory tells me he's pretty sadistic. Stalking his enemies before killing them and whatnot.

  • Karao_KeKarao_Ke Member Posts: 1,217

    In the remake, they make Freddy out to be more of a pedophile rather than a child murderer. He's also a lot more sadistic than in the original movies, here's a clip to show you (watch till the end): https://youtu.be/rvpFERo3ZnA?t=150 (age-restricted so I couldn't put it in as media).

  • AsherFrostAsherFrost Member Posts: 2,340

    Yup, still the sadistic terror master.

    Gotta think he's one of the few killers that totally agrees and likes the way the entity does things, no manipulation required.

    Fun clip, still think Englund was better, and the face looks weird to me, but I can't put my finger on what exactly makes it look off. I spent 5 Halloweens staring at Freddy's face in the mirror (RPHH for life!) so I'm really particular about it.

    Also was a bit disappointed he got the setup and didn't deliver the best freddy line. "This, is God"

    The clown and Freddy definitely, both abuse their victims physically and mentally before giving them their end, The Clown kidnapped young people and children (I think) and took them to his caravan (I think he sexually raped his victims before killing them) and Freddy is the most sadistic since he enjoyed hurting and abusing children and then killing them.

  • It’s a tie between Doc and Amanda. Maybe Ghostface as well since his Mori is him talking a selfie with the corpse

    The hag is going around eating people's livers!

  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 12,616

    Clown cuts off people's fingers mid-match just to taste them and then wear them on a keyring. Freddy is a pedophile. Doctor tortures the ever-loving hell out of people. I'd say those three probably top the charts IMO.

  • jester20kjester20k Member Posts: 827

    Freddy. Hes a pedo. And he came back from the grave to punishment the children he molested because their parents rightfully killed him. What an ahole lol.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 2,188

    It's heavily implied that he kidnapped children when it says "Men, women, young, old, he didn't care. The essence of a good collection is in the variety, in the memories and stories they evoke."

    He's like Bubba in a way, both of them don't discriminate and will take any skin/finger that satisfies them.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 2,188

    Amanda is debatable as..

    In Saw 3, we see her start spiriling out of control at the end, all of the murders she had carried out had driven her to the point of no return and her guilt got the best of her.

  • MeltingPenguinsMeltingPenguins Member Posts: 3,437

    Doctor and Clown.

    They both see the survivors for what they are, unlike Deathslinger who sees the survivors as the people who massively wronged him.

    Bubba has the whole 'trying to protect his family' bit going, hasn't he?

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 2,188

    You're right about Bubba, in his backstory it mentions that he kills because he's scared that his family will disown him. He just wants to keep his family safe and will do anything to protect them.

  • ASpazNamedSteveASpazNamedSteve Member Posts: 1,783

    Definitely Doc and Clown. They live to make others suffer.

    Wasn't Oni super brutal and petty too? Can't quite remember.

  • unluckycombounluckycombo Member Posts: 582

    For lore, Doctor and Clown. As others have stated, Doctor experimented on his victims, and Clown sexually abused his victims before killing them. I'd probably say Freddy next, because it is Freddy.

    I think Pyramid Head and Ghostface are up there too though. Ghostie really enjoyed the thrill of the hunt.

    I would put Myers higher as well, as he is supposed to be evil incarnate and all, but in the first two movies (and the og book), while it does talk about how he gets pleasure out of murder, Michael is also kinda dumb, and at least tends to make the actual stabby stabby murder bits quick. Compare that to Doctor and Clown, who seem to wear you down in every way until your demise, PH who was literally created for this, or Freddy who you could never escape, and I just think he's a weak contender. (He do still be best boi though.)

  • HectorBrandoHectorBrando Member Posts: 2,671

    Clown and Doctor, both their backstories state they enjoy torturing people, both until their victims are drained of their strength and will and in the case of Clown it does gives some vibes of being sexual incited torture...

  • MeltingPenguinsMeltingPenguins Member Posts: 3,437

    Which killer sees the survivors as who they are and who doesn't. And who has other motives?

    Sees someone else for all we know:

    Wraith (for all we know)

    Nurse (possibly)

    Huntress (potentially)

    Oni (likely sees them as the farmers and lords that insulted him)

    Deathslinger (sees them as Bayshore, the warden and others who wronged him)

    Twins (potentially. Might go into the second category as well)

    Kills to survive/protect someone:

    Trapper (arguably)


    Hag (for all we know)



    Blight (The Entity supplies him with serum in exchange, iirc)

    Kills for killing's sake and sees the survivors as what they are:











  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 12,616

    Unless Myers actively starts slurping on fingers, that ain't pleasure. :P

    Of course it is. You don't have to suck fingers to derive pleasure from killing. Unless you think doing stuff like making a Jack O Lantern out of someone's head was an act of boredom lol. Michael even enjoys toying with his victims at times before killing them. Remember the ghost sheet stunt he pulled in the original?

  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 12,616

    That's just him being efficient. It ain't pleasure unless it's tasty. :P

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 5,832

    Efficient? They're already dead lol. Decorating the corpses is purely a pleasure aspect.

  • SnakeSound222SnakeSound222 Member Posts: 4,467

    But does he bring his victims back to life just to continue hurting them? And does he offer himself as a test subject?

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 5,832

    He has not got the power to bring them back to life. Offer himself as a test subject to whom?

  • DabihwowDabihwow Member Posts: 3,409

    i'd say Pyramid Head, Doctor, or Clown
