The Wiki of the Dead

A horde of creatures approaching. There are multiple Davids and Labans, and two Stones present.

The following is a comprehensive list of all creatures in The House of the Dead 4 and its expansion, The House of the Dead 4 Special. Serving as the main enemies, these creatures were utilized in a posthumous 2003 incident masterminded by Caleb Goldman.

Most of the creatures have a noticeable "punk" aesthetic; they sport tattoos, jewelry, piercings, wild hairstyles, and studded bracelets. Fighting together in hordes, they may grab or knock down their prey in an attempt to overwhelm them. Many of these creatures are, in appearance and behavior, reminiscent of the ones used in the 2000 incident.

All canon names are found in game files for The House of the Dead 4's PlayStation 3 port.[1]
