Licensed characters yall want.

What are your biggest requests for licensed characters in DbD?

How would you want their killer power to work?

What would their survivor perks be?

I for one would love to see candyman added as that was the first horror movie I watched that made me a junkie.

Honestly wanted to know the community's input?

    Jason :(

  • RuckpieRuckpie Member Posts: 49

    I really hope people don’t spam Jason. I want the guy from little shops of horror and a map made out of the shop.

    I'm not into a lot of scary movies so I don't know a good majority of the probably licensed killers out there, but I'm really hoping for one to be added that's actually terrifying, creepy, and makes the hairs on your neck stand. Let's be honest, for a horror game. No one is actually scared of the killer.

    I personally go "awwww" when the killer keeps failing a mind game

    I'd LOVE to see the Warrior-form of the Xenomorph and possibly Ripley.

    No clue as to what their perks or power would be, but hey. They'd be a cool addition.

    Were you thinking the guys who feed people to the plants? Honestly that would be neat I'm just not sure how it would be executed.

  • MusicalhexMusicalhex Member Posts: 55

    Not sure if it'd be liscensed but an SCP killer would be pretty damn cool.

  • RedrumCBRedrumCB Member Posts: 15

    I think it would be worth it to pitch the idea the the actual scp forums. Someone might come up with an Scp specifically for this lol

  • RedrumCBRedrumCB Member Posts: 15

    I'm not sure I know of what or where Brenda is from but those perks seem really well thought out. That first one would be cool if it was like decisive but only worked if you were within like 12 meters of a hook and it eliminated you scratch Mark's for 10 seconds?

  • RuckpieRuckpie Member Posts: 49

    The guy who feeds the plant. I can’t think of a way for the actual plant to be a killer lol.

  • KwikwittedKwikwitted Member Posts: 641

    Pinhead from Hellraiser would be my obvious choice.

    Jason got his own game so likely he won't be available until that thing dies a horrible death. Pennywise would be crowding with the actual clown killer we already got. It's already kind of weird we have two chainsaw wielders in the mix thanks to licensing.

    If they wanted to get very true to the lore they should go with Clive Barker's original pinhead from the novel which is female.

  • TFjawbreakerTFjawbreaker Member Posts: 43

    Pinhead or the chatterer from hellraiser

  • NorMak3NorMak3 Member Posts: 88

    The reason none of the killers are intimidating is because they're underpowered and aren't given the proper tools or graphics to be legitimately scary to experienced players, but I still kinda see your point.

  • AshleyWBAshleyWB Member Posts: 4,062

    Alien, SCISSORMAN, Matilda (Mrs Trunchbull), Terminator, Predator, Dave from I.T, Penny-wise from IT, The wendigo looking creatures from a Quiet Place (insane hearing but blind), Deadites, Jason, Pinhead, The mummy from the mummy movies, RA, giant boulder from Indiana Jones, and Adolf himself from Wolfenstein or Zombie army trilogy or something.

    Anything less then I'm uninstalling. You have 24 hours.

    The Tall Man from the Phantasm movies would be one of my choices.

  • doublev1986doublev1986 Member Posts: 78

    Tallman Phantasm

  • skullybonksskullybonks Member Posts: 2

    I know this doesn't really fit in with the horror movie trope, but the character itself is pretty horrifying as a concept.

    But, yeah, General RAAM from Gears Of War would be a cool one imo. His primary attack would be his serrated blade & his secondary would be a ranged Kryll attack. I guess the latter would work similar to Huntress's hatchets or something.

    Given that executions are a big part of Gears, maybe he could have 3 randomized Memento Moris, or the ability to change them or something. I'd have them be his impalement he does on Minh in the first game, his neck snap from Gears UE & the beheading from the RAAM's Shadow DLC in Gears 3. I mean, if that's not possible, just the impalement would be fine.

    I don't know what his perks could be, though. Maybe he can like smash a gen and completely put it out of commission? Seems like it'd be a little OP, though. I dunno, perks are kinda hard to come up with, tbh.

    The one big problem I can see is that... well, canonically, RAAM is 10ft tall lol. I don't think his model would fit through certain doors lmao. Although, with breakable walls, maybe that'd be slightly less of a problem. You could always just scale him down, I guess.

    Alt skins: Gears 1 model, UE model, "Vold RAAM" model, maybe standard red Theron outfits & Palace Guard outfit as well.

    His chase theme could be a "chase-friendly" remix of the Gears 1

    In-Game Name: The General or The Uzil (which just means General)

    If he had to have a Survivor counterpart, it'd probably have to be Chaps or Franklin, the Stranded from Gears 1. Having Marcus & Dom or anyone like that wouldn't feel right, given that the average Gear soldier is like 300 pounds of muscle & armor and can crush skulls into paste with their bare fists lmao.

    Another cool killer would be Skorge as The High Priest or something, cuz his double-sided Chainsaw Staff is a pretty sick weapon. But, I think RAAM fits the game better.

    But, yeah. I'm done for now lol. Sorry for the super long reply.

  • skullybonksskullybonks Member Posts: 2

    The Old Man would be cool. SCP-106, I think it is.

    I know 173 is the popular one, but gameplay-wise, I think 106 fits in better. A voidwalking ability would be pretty cool to walk through walls and whatnot. Maybe it'd work kinda like Demogorgon's portals do, idk.

    The "Shy Guy" would be sick. But again, like 173, I don't think they would work at all in terms of gameplay.

  • DWolfAlphaDWolfAlpha Member Posts: 927

    Not really licensed, but part of me would love to have Jeff the Killer. I don't have any idea how that would work, but the Mori would have to be the "Go to sleep" thing.

  • OtakuBurritoOtakuBurrito Member Posts: 512

    bruh if brenda got into this game i would literally NEVER play anything else

  • GamekeeperGamekeeper Member Posts: 47

    Am i the only want one who wants candyman? I think the devs could think of something clever with his bees

  • yutycornyutycorn Member Posts: 246







    TERMINATOR :')))

    Uhh that's all I can think of at the moment. I desperately want JASON added though. He'd be such a great fit for this game.

    Just woke up to be discussing powers for each but for a quick sum up, I want their powers to be similar or on point with their abilities in the movies.

  • TheVampyreSlayerTheVampyreSlayer Member Posts: 21

    I'd love to see some kind of alien. Or maybe the blob. :P

  • GhostofYharnamGhostofYharnam Member Posts: 597

    They said awhile back they will never add Jeepers Creepers due to the guy being a pedo.

  • GhostofYharnamGhostofYharnam Member Posts: 597

    Weeping Angel

    Buffy Summers. I would honestly be close to tears if she was added. She’s been my hero since I was 13. 😂

  • Hag.is.DtierHag.is.Dtier Member Posts: 1,398

    Ben Wilis from I know what you did last summer.

  • TerminatorGuyTerminatorGuy Member Posts: 431

    1-The Terminator T-800 that looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but as the game progresses his fire could melt off his skin exposing the T-800 endoskeleton. We need a soulless machine/android in the game.

    2-I wanted to say Jack the Ripper, but I remembered he's unlicensed unless they take the one from Assassin's Creed Syndicate and make a deal with Ubisoft. The 1800s London map and atmosphere would be phenomenal. The survivor could be the male detective working on the Ripper case.

    3-Jack Torrance as killer from The Shining. His wife, Wendy Torrance as a survivor and the Overlook Hotel as a map. Corridors, rooms, wide open lobby, maybe even the maze a little.

    4-Xenomorph drone from Alien. Either Ellen Ripley or Amanda Ripley as a survivor idc. The USCSS Nostromo OR The Sevastopol (depending on which survivor they choose to add) as maps. The Xenomorph can possible get a lot of cool cosmetics based on different variants like the Deacon or the Protomorph, if you've seen all the Alien movies.

    5-The Engineer from Alien Prometheus as a killer. Yes, I know another character from the Alien franchise, but those Engineers are scary when they're mad and....they hate humanity. Anyway, the survivor would be Elizabeth Shaw and the map would the the inside of the Engineer's 'Juggernaut' spaceship.

    6-Pyramid Head/Red Pyramid from Silent Hill 2 with James Sunderland as a survivor. The Wood Side Apartments would be the map. PH's chase theme should be "Betrayal" theme from the game and his terror radius coming closer should give the scraping/dragging sound of his Great Sword.

    7-Frank West as solo survivor. Shoutout to the dedicated person on Twitter ;)

    8-A Candyman chapter based on the 1992 version. Candyman killer and a Cabrini Green map. But also Helen Lyle as a survivor. But the devs better do her looks justice unlike Laurie and Quentin. They gotta make Helen as pretty as she is in the movie. She would take the number one spot for prettiest survivor in the game probably.

    9-Outlast 1 chapter with Chris Walker as the killer and Miles Upshur as the survivor. The map would be somewhere in the male ward of Mount Massive Asylum. Walker's chain sound could be implemented and his power could have something even more to do with the breakable walls we already have and BHVR are testing them even more. "LITTLE PIG"

    10-Re-Animator DLC with Herbert West as a survivor and undead Dr.Carl Hill as a killer. The map would be one of the labs. (BIG PS: Jeffrey Combs(the man who played Herbert West) said something like he would be glad to negotiate with BHVR if they approached him first with an offer.)

    Optionals-Pinhead(Hellraiser), Pennywise(I.T.) Jason(Friday the 13th) (when the lawsuit is settled), Supernatural chapter with Sam and Dean Winchester, B.J. Blazkowicz as a solo survivor(Wolfenstein game franchise) @Peanits

    Thank you for reading if you made it this far. :)
