Type C-2, named Bentley (ベントレー Bentorē?), is an obese humanoid creature. He is an enemy in The House of the Dead, its 2021 remake, the mobile game The House of the Dead: Nightmare, and House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn.

Developed by Dr. Curien and Thornheart to carry out humanity-threatening worldwide incidents, Bentley is characterized by his massive strength and endurance. He originally belonged to a C-type group of other obese creatures: Samson (サムソン Samuson?) and Burner (バーナー Bānā?). Both inherit Bentley's traits, but utilize different weapons.

Bentley is the predecessor to several obese creatures in the House of the Dead series, including Bob from The House of the Dead 2 and Charles from The House of the Dead III and 4.


Bentley is a shirtless, heavyset creature. In The House of the Dead, he wears blue jeans. His skin is pale, with parts of his belly, right bicep, and the left side of his face covered in green burn-like markings. His right eye is pale white, but his left is missing. Bentley is also completely bald.

In House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn, Bentley's appearance has changed. He now sports a grayed, filthy jacket with matching pants and black loafers. The burns across his body are covered entirely by his attire.

On the PC port of The House of the Dead, the markings on Bentley's body are pink in color.


Bentley is one of the strongest creatures encountered; he can survive even if his belly is blasted open (in The House of the Dead). From a distance, he tends to throw barrels or oil drums at the player. Otherwise, he will rush his target in an attempt to shoulder tackle them.

He shares a common weak point with all other humanoid creatures: his head. His throwable objects can also be destroyed before they damage the player.


Bentley's unused "debu" model.

  • In the original House of the Dead, there is an unused variant of Bentley with the filename "debu". This version has different-colored pants, lacerations on his body, missing portions of his scalp and mouth, and no missing eye.
