The '''Samson Series''' are a bunch of large-bodied zombies in the [[The House of the Dead (Series)|House of the Dead]] series. These bald-headed, chubby zombies move rather fast, despite their size and can take an number of hits before falling. Preferring to fling heavy objects most of the time, they can be the most formidable.
