“Do not fear him. He chooses that name to scare off intruders, and protect his flock... of giant spiders.” — Lars Halford


The Kill Master is a character in Brütal Legend. He is a motorcycle-driving bass mystic who lives at the top of the Thunderhorn and has the power to heal his allies by playing his bass guitar.

“I ain't much of a joiner but I'll do anything if it pisses off Lionwhyte. Drag your wounded up here before they die and I'll heal 'em all.” — Kill Master


Early in Eddie's journey, he must reach the top of this mountain so that the Kill Master can heal Ophelia, who is severely wounded. To get there, the player will have to survive stampedes of Raptor Elks and Lionwhyte's minions. Unfortunately, Ophelia's wounds are so grave that even the Kill Master's heaviest strings aren't enough to heal her, and Eddie must journey into the lair of the Metal Queen to get bass strings heavy enough to save her. He has a personal hatred of General Lionwhyte, doing anything to "piss him off". After being given the offer, the Kill Master joined the ranks of Ironheade, along with his Thunderhogs.

After Lionwhyte is killed, Eddie may ask him why he didn't leave. He claims he wants to see where this "revolution" is headed. Upon meeting Rima, he impresses her near instantly by healing her and her Metal Beast, which apparently feels fuzzy and warm. Eddie wonders how bassists do it, since he had to summon evidence of his father being an ancient hero just to avoid being burned to death by her.

Double TeamEdit

“Everything louder than everyone else.” — Kill Master

Kill Master is a unique version of the Thunderhog unit.

Drivable vehicle. Eddie can take the bass guitar and produce a massive sonic blast, temporarily stunning nearby infantry and vehicles, along with boosting the healing performed by the Kill Master.

TriviaEdit

  • His name is merely to keep out intruders, the Kill Master himself having taken an oath to not harm others.
  • After the campaign is completed, the Kill Master can be found on his mountain, where he was originally found.
  • The Kill Master appears as the first Thunderhog hired by the player.
  • The Kill Master is modelled after Lemmy Kilmister as well, right down to the two warts on his left cheek. The name "Kill Master" is a reference to Lemmy's surname Kilmister.
  • The Kill Master's bass is modeled to resemble the iconic Rickenbacker bass used by Lemmy of Motorhead
  • Kill Master does all his own solos.
  • During Regret's Infinite Mire, if Rima's Metal Beast is hurt and the Killmaster is close enough to heal it, the following dialogue is heard: Rima: "What...what's that sound? I feel so alive!", Eddie: "Oh, that's our bassist.", Killmaster: "Just doing my job, ma'am", Rima: "(moans pleased)", Eddie: "Man, what is it with bass players?". This may be based on the cliché wherein bass players are very popular with women.
