Cyril is a brown-shirted Zombie that is armed with two axes. The axes can be used at close range or thrown from a distance. Cyril is the predecessor to Johnny, who appears in both The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead III. It is the second zombie encountered in the franchise, being first encountered in the entrance of Curien Manor. They take up to 4 bullets to kill and can be quite a problem on high difficulty.
Cyril has been a sort of Icon to THoTD series as he has been the idea for several different zombies in the game alongside Johnny; the face of THoTD2. These successors to Cyril include a zombie almost identical to Johnny from the fourth game; Trevor, who is the only axe - wielding zombie which is seen in several places without any weapons.
- Cyril makes a cameo in the 2012 animated Walt Disney Studios film, Wreck-It Ralph.
