Axe creatures is the encompassing term given to several axe-wielding creatures that appear throughout the House of the Dead franchise. First released by financier Caleb Goldman onto the streets of an unnamed European city alongside several other creatures, these beings have since been engineered to combat AMS forces in many biological-related incidences.

The axe-creatures come in several iterations with the series: Johnny (ジョニー, Jonī?) and Cecil (セシル, Seshiru?) from The House of the Dead 2, Jack (ジャック, Jakku?) from The House of the Dead III, and Jimmy (ジミー, Jimī?) from The House of the Dead 4. While having the same physiology and weapon of choice, each variant displays different methods of attack.

Appearance

The axe-creature’s appearance remains similar in The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead III. These creatures have blue skin and long, shoulder-length blonde hair. They always wear blood-covered flannel shirts and dirty, torn denim jeans. In the second game, they wear brown loafers, while throughout the rest of the series they are depicted as barefoot.

In The House of the Dead 4, Jimmy is depicted as pale-skinned and gaunt, with stringy blonde hair and dressed completely in black.

History

Main series

The House of the Dead 2

The axe creatures first appear in the second game under the moniker Johnny. They almost always appear in hordes and will approach the player(s) one-by-one to attack with their dual-wielding axes. They can also stand on high places and launch their axes as projectiles. A secondary variant in different clothing, Cecil, also appears. Johnny appears in Chapters 1, 2, and 3, while Cecil appears in chapters 2 and 3.

When AMS agents James Taylor and Gary Stewart successfully infiltrate Caleb Goldman's headquarters, Johnny, along with several other creatures, can be seen in the process of incubation.

The House of the Dead III

The axe creatures, now called Jack, only appear within the EFI Research Facility specifically in the Information Systems Department. Their only method of attack is running in hordes and slashing one at a time with their axes.

The House of the Dead 4

Under the guise of Jimmy, the axe creatures make appearances in Chapters 3 and 4. Here, they display a diverse range of attacks. They will either approach the player and slash with their axes one at a time, throw their axes toward the player(s), or hold their axes horizontally and perform a dual-slash assault. This incarnation of the axe creature is possibly the deadliest in the series, due to its unrivaled speed and various methods of offense.
