Cyril is a Zombie that is armed with two axes appearing in The House of the Dead. Cyril is the predecessor to Johnny, who appears in both The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead III and Shane (Unofficial Name), who appears in The House of the Dead 4 but an upgraded version who does not require an dual axe to attack them. It is the second zombie encountered in the franchise, being first encountered in the entrance of Curien Manor.

Cyril has been a sort of Icon to The House of the Dead series as he has been the idea for several different zombies in the game alongside Johnny; the face of the second game. These successors to Cyril include a zombie almost identical to Johnny from the fourth game; Shane, who is the only axe-wielding zombie which is seen in several places without any weapons.

Bestiary Overview Edit

Cyril wears light-brown shirt and black pants with the lower part torn. His eyes are blank white and his skin are colored in light-blue. His choice of weapons are two axes in both hands. His head is nearly bald with brown hair from the back.

His appearance from both the arcade, PC, and Sega Saturn is very different. From the arcade and Sega Saturn port, Cyril's blood from his mouth and the right portion cheek are green resembling slime. From the PC port, however, his blood are simply red.

Offense Edit

The axes that Cyril holds can be used to attack by close range or by throwing at distances. They take up to 4 bullets to kill and can be quite a problem on high difficulty.

Trivia Edit

  • Cyril makes a cameo in the 2012 animated Walt Disney Studios film, Wreck-It Ralph.
