Candi Stryper is a playable character that appears in the two extra levels of The House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut.
Candi has blond hair that is pulled into two red pigtails and blue eyes.
She wears revealing yellow shirt that displays her cleavage and ties below the bottom of her midriff, a short red-striped mini-skirt, red sneakers and she is seen with a leg-brace on her right leg, which possibly came from a leg injury prior to the game's time frame.
Candi was the co-worker of Varla Guns at the Pink Pussycat strip club and the lover of Jasper Guns. After Varla informs her of Jasper's death, Candi accompanies her through Bayou City in search of her motorcycle. Fighting their way to the biker bar on the other side of town, they face a pair of mutated strippers whom they once worked with known as Coco and Sindy.

Later, after abandoning the protagonists at the carnival, Varla encounters Candi again, attempting to hitchhike back into town to retrieve Jasper's voice box which she left at the club by mistake.
Once again, Varla attempts to get Candi away from the outbreak, but when the pair discover Papa Caesar at a meat processing factory, they divert their attention to taking him down. In the end, they have a face off with Meat Katie, a female mutant with a head of a Minotaur with a giant meat cleaver. They defeat her by knocking her back into a grinder, at the same time her cleaver is thrown into the air and lands across two supports. Unfortunately, they do not hold it in place for long and it falls, cutting Candi's right arm clean off. She dies of blood loss in Varla's arms, seeing visions of Jasper coming down from Heaven on a stair lift to greet her.
