How would you rate these 5 based how excited/hyped you would be if they were the new killer:

Jason, Xenomorph, Pennywise, Candyman, Pyramid Head


for me:

  1. Candyman (most excited)
  2. Xenomorph
  3. Jason
  4. Pyramid Head
  5. Pennywise (least excited)

    Most Excited to Least Excited:

    1. Jason Vorhees
    2. Pyramid Head
    3. Pennywise
    4. Xenomorph
    5. Candyman

    Vorhees would be the Ultimate Addition to Dead by Daylight. He's THE most iconic horror film character. Camp Crystal Lake would make for a fun map, and the chances of him ever being in it are so low at this point that him being added would just be Mindblowing.

    Pyramid Head is another unlikely one. Silent Hill would make an incredible map, and it'd pave the way for future horror game characters making an appearance.

    Pennywise would be pretty good. I wonder if hey'd have creepy red balloons around the map.

    Never really watched Alien, but seems like an okay addition.

    Candyman would be fine, too, though. Just least excited of all of these. He's not really iconic. And while his addition wouldn't be a bad thing, it's basically what's expected at this point. I'd say its like adding DQ Hero to Smash. "Cool, but yeah we figured this."

    I’m a HUGE fan of the Alien and F13 series but seeing the Xenomorph would be the coolest to me personally.

    Alien is one of the most influential horror movies ever, so much so that it's preserved in the Library of Congress. A Xenomorph would also be a terrifying creature to deal with.

    Jason is one of the big boys of the slasher genre. Yet the lawsuit has kept him so far away from his slasher brothers.

    Pennywise is such a cool creature, but my big issue with him is how powerful he is, potentially on par with the Entity. You just can't show that power in the game without completely breaking it.

    Candyman's cool, and if they had Tony Todd voice him, it would be perfect. But he's just... not really all that iconic.

    Pyramid Head is so far at the bottom he doesn't count. Maybe it's just my lack of experience with Silent Hill, but I just don't see the appeal of this character. From what I've seen others say, he doesn't even truly exist either, being a figment of the main character's guilty conscious or something.

    1. Candyman

    2. Jason

    3. Pyramid Head (I don't think he'll ever come to the game because for one he moves at a glacial pace, but I love the character)

    4. Pennywise

    5. Xenomorph (I don't think they fit the universe in the slightest)

    But my true number one, that you didn't mention, is Pinhead. I'd also love a classic monster like Dracula, Wolfman, The Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc.

    I personally would love the idea of more nonhuman killers and even though I don't dislike the idea of the typical killers I don't think i'd enjoy seeing Jason or Candyman as I just don't really like them. Pennywise I am a a little neutral as I feel as though he might not fit in with the dbd theme, as much as you can say that with a lot of killers I just doubt they could make him as menacing as he is in the films.

    1. Xenomorph -> Cmon it is a freaking Alien
    2. Pyramid Head -> I love his design
    3. Pennywise -> We have a Clown, yes. But Pennywise is not really a clown. Also he is a legend in the horror community.
    4. Jason -> This guy should be Nr.1 actually, but I feel like he is already in the game.
    5. Candyman -> Couldn't care less about him.

    Never been much of a horror anything person really so Saw was actually the only property I'd heard of before dbd enough to actually remember it's existence. Always been a gamer though so I atleast know about pyramid head and be looks dope. Love alien everything games and movies but unsure how they'd put a Xenomorph in. Pennywise is atleast a non human which could be interesting and candyman bees sound like an interesting power. Don't know anything about Jason other than something about legal battles.

    5.) Candyman

    I love the Alien movies and would like to see another non-human killer.


    I don't really think it's gonna be Candyman. They told us the chapter is gonna be ICONIC and Candyman doesn't even come to mind

    I really hope it's Pyramid Head, since he's strong and scary and a KILLER, but I don't really care otherwise. I don't really see the point of Xenomorph, Pennywise or Candyman, but Jason would be alright.

    If not Pyramid Head, maybe they could add Scissorman from Clock Tower.... 😏

  • DabihwowDabihwow Member Posts: 1,944

    1: Candyman

    2: Jason

    3:Xenomorph

    4: Pyramid head

    5: Pennywise

    The reason I have Candyman as my number 1 pick because a lot of evidence is pointing to him, however they might be doing that to trick us. Jason because there is a decent amount of evidence like the date in which the stream will go live. Xenomorph, I have never watched the full alien series because I'm not that into it. Pyramid head because I don't know if they would be able to fit something like that into the game. But Pennywise is the least for me because I wouldn't mind seeing him in the game but I don't see how something as powerful as him can be controlled by the entity. however these are just my opinions

    Honestly 3 4 and 5 are all about the same excitement level for me. I'd be most excited for Candyman or Jason but ultimately I don't care as much about who it is as I care what their power is. If they have a good power it doesn't matter how excited I was for the character I'll like them. On the other hand if their power sucks I'm not going to like them even if it ends up being who I want it to be.

    1. Jason

    2. Xenomorph

    3. Jack Frost

    4-6 candy man, pennywise, pyramid head


    1. Jason is so iconic he transcends the horror genre and is known throughout popculture. Of the big 3, he's the biggest. Have always loved him.

    2. Xenomorph again transcends the sci-fi genre. If you look at the structure of the films, and put it on earth you have a horror movie. Its only sci-fi because, space. As long as they dont make it a demogorgon clone I would be happy.

    3. Killer snowman. Completely underrated and ignored!

    4-6. Havent seen any of the movies nor played the game. As for pennywise, except for runningman, i hate Stephen king.

    EDIT TO ADD: Other than Jason, I'd much rather have Pinhead (Hellraiser) and the Tall Man (Phantasm) or even Chucky (Child's Play).

    2-4 are pretty much random since I don't think the devs would do any of them justice.

    Most excited is number 1, least is gonna be 5 ^^

    1. Candyman (most excited)
    2. Pennywise
    3. Jason
    4. Xenomorph
    5. Pyramid Head (least excited)

    1 I love the original Candyman, I've always loves his aesthetic and style and just the many messages the film conveys, controversy or not it's a cult classic!

    2 Love the IT movies, especially the most recent incarnation of IT but the original was awesome as well so I wouldn't mind seeing it as a cosmetic.

    3 Jason has never been my favorite slasher, I liked the first movie but everything after that is kind of meh to me. I hate the whole fact that he's impossible to kill. Myers is different as I only count the first and 2018 edition as he's a bit more cunning and though he survives against the odds it never really feels like he's un-killable.

    4 Love Xenomorphs and the whole Alien franchise as a whole, but it would be weird to see it assimilated into the game and it's aesthetic. If it were a Big Chap style alien I wouldn't mind it, and would probably be excited and you know I'd main Ripley as a survivor

    5 I know little to nothing about the guy, and the whole thing looks absolutely goofy imo and another sword wielding killer so close to Oni is boring but I suppose I should attempt to learn more about him if he does come to the game.

  • Cornpopers_EvanCornpopers_Evan Member Posts: 1,974

    From most to least excited

    1. Jason- C'mon, he's the king of slashers
    2. Xenomorph- Xeno's are awesome through and through, a Alien is my third most dreamed about chapter @MegMain98
    3. Pennywise- I'd definitely take Penny, I really enjoyed IT chapter 1.
    4. Pyramid Head- I haven't played the SH franchise but know of PH, isn't he supposed to simply be just a manifestation? Still, would be cool
    5. Candyman- The ultimate "ok" for me, I do really enjoy the first film(haven't seen the others) but I personally think there's much bigger ip grabs to go for. Still, I'd be fine with Candyman, oh, plus, Tony Todd is awesome!

    And if I'm being perfectly honest, I'm only excited for the first two. Pyramid Head would be my number one, if it wasn't for the fact that Jason should just be in DBD already. So many people want him, he's the most iconic character missing from the roster. Pyramid Head on the other hand is actually scary to me, and he'd be one of the most iconic monsters from a video game they could add. I've always loved his character design, and BHVR could have a lot of fun designing that one's powers.

    Candyman fits DBD. Pennywise, sort of. We have to ignore the lore. Where Pyramid Head canon wise shows up after the initial lore in Silent Hill 2, Pennywise has a much more structured lore. He's an alien. He's an eldritch creature. He's trans-dimensional. He's a God. He's def on par with the entity in terms of being. Stephen King has all but stated he is a major villain outside of "IT" in his "Dark Tower" series. Again though, we can ignore the lore. BHVR does for a couple of current characters on the roster.

    Xenomorph? Idk man, just not interested. I know we have the Demogorgon and everything, but beastly creatures seem a hard fit.

    Friday the 13th is the slasher franchise and it's mark on not just horror, but pop culture, is undeniable.

    Getting Jason and the Friday the 13th license would be the dream for Dead by Daylight. The ultimate feather in an already well-adorned cap.

    Additionally, I personally would to love to see BHVR's take on Jason, as well as whomever they'd choose to be his Survivor (Tommy? Chris? Alice? Ginny? Paul? Or maybe someone who got killed in a particularly memorable way?).

    All this said; I don't really see this happening until the lawsuit is settled, regardless of what other people say.

    -

    The first Alien film is a masterpiece of horror; due in no small part to H.R. Giger's insane and otherworldly designs or how it challenged pop culture views of science fiction at the time.

    Getting the Alien and either the Nostromo or the Space Jockey's spaceship as a map would be incredible.

    This said, I don't see how Dead by Daylight could feasibly transfer an Alien into their gameplay loop. Their sneakiness, resilience, and superhuman cunning aren't traits that I can see being easily translated into the gameplay loop of hit, down, and hook Survivors.

    The best thing I could see them accomplishing would be making a sort of Alien skin for Demogorgon. Which would be as lame as getting Alien would be cool.

    -

    I've never had the privilege of playing the original Silent Hill games, they were before my time, but from I've heard they were really impressive and atmospheric.

    If BHVR miraculously somehow coaxed Konami into letting them use Pyramid Head it'd be incredible - as long as he comes with some of that much lauded Silent Hill mood, and isn't just dumped unceremoniously into the game with a forgettable power and nary a thought for the source material; like *cough* Leatherface *cough* some licensed Killers.

    -

    I'm not a fan of Candyman, and I don't really see how he'd fit in Dead by Daylight in a way that respects the original character - he'd need major adjustments, like Freddy, to fit into Dead by Daylight.

    Maybe if he somehow gets a cool power or awesome perks I'd get excited, but otherwise I'd be more disappointed we didn't get someone else.

    -

    As much as I love the original miniseries AND the new film adaptation (the book executed Stephen King's cool ideas terribly, fight me Stephen King stans) I would hate to see Pennywise in DbD.

    It's a demigod like being in her own right: and while it's theoretically possible the Entity's Spider Goddess status would trump It's Spider Goddess status, I don't think there is any way that It could be portrayed in DbD in a way that is both faithful to the source material and interesting to play as.

    1. Xenomorph - because they are easily the coolest looking and, in my opinion, scariest of the bunch
    2. Pyramid Head - never played the Silent Hill games but from the little gameplay i've seen this character looks pretty damn menacing
    3. Pennywise - I've seen the original movie and the first of the 2 most recent ones and the character is interesting
    4. Jason - gotta say I don't really care for Jason as i've never found him to be all that interesting
    5. Candyman - last because before all of these speculations I genuinely had no idea this character even existed
