Franklin (フランクリン, Furankurin?) is a humanoid cybernetic creature. He is an enemy in The House of the Dead 2 and 4, appearing exclusively in Caleb Goldman's headquarters.

Appearance

In The House of the Dead 2, Franklin appears as a naked, silver-skinned cyborg creature with part of his brain shown through a transparent cranium. Like Lance and Eric, his eyes are noticeably missing.

In The House of the Dead 4, Franklin appears in hordes, and bears a more cybernetic physique.

History

Main series

The House of the Dead 2

Franklin appears throughout Goldman's headquarters, he will hit the player(s) with his fists at close range. Compared to other cybernetic creatures, he moves at a relatviely slow pace.

The House of the Dead 4

Appearing once again exclusively in Goldman's headquarters, Franklin can be found in hordes, moving slowly towards the player(s) and attempting to strike with his hands.

Gameplay

Franklin can appear through walls, but is slow-moving likely due to his experimental nature.[1][excerpt 1] While this makes him less dangerous, he has a tendency of appearing suddenly and ambushing the player.[1][excerpt 2]

In The House of the Dead 2, Franklin's movement and attacks are the same as Ebitan, another creature. In The House of the Dead 4, Franklin will instead shoulder tackle or grab the player, and his weak point is the emblem on his chest instead of his head.
