Hello, my AMS friends. It's Darryl.
After a long and hard time of thinking. I have appointed User:Multibrawlr as our secondary administrator!
This decision is made due to his constant activity on the wiki, as well as his contributions during his time as a "Content Moderator". I also believe that I myself need someone to take control while I'm gone since I'm getting abit busy.
So if you have questions or feedback, don't afraid to ask Multibrawlr!
That's all for now. More improvements to the wiki will come very soon!

Hello my AMS friends, Darryl here.
Me and a couple of our contributors have made changes to the wiki. Here are some of the changes
1. You may have noticed that the logo and the name of the wiki has changed. Special thanks to Egregiousguy, who helped me create our new logo. By the way, Egregiousguy is also a data miner, decrypting lots of stuff from the arcade version of the games. He recently decrypt and present a TON of models and stage layouts for The House of the Dead 4, ranging from character models, stage layouts, boss models and enemy models. So again, huge thanks to Egregoiusguy for helping us out!
2. User: Multibrawlr has made major changes for the wiki, from making navboxes for HotD4 Special and SD respectively, adding quotation temp…

Hello my AMS friends.
I am proud to announce that I has accepted the offer as the new administrator for the wiki. As for the previous admin, Dean3, he will stay as an administrator, though due to personal reasons he might not be able to help much.
And now with a new leadership, it's time to continue fixing and updating the wiki. Setbacks will happen and difficulties will be encountered, but slowly but surely we can fix it all.
It's time to make the wiki great again!

Hello, everyone, it's Darryl
I just want to tell you all that I am now pursuing to be the wiki's new administrator. The current administrator, Dean, couldn't fulfill his tasks as administrator due to being busy in real life and has given me his blessings.
As a part of my administrator status campaign, here are some things I want to do for the wiki, appearance wise and content wise:
1. I will remove any unnecessary categories and pages. Stub pages will be removed completely and the category pages will be reworked.
2. I will change the overall look of the wiki (not sure if an admin could do so, but hopefully we can)
3. We will start cleaning up the mess that is the List of Zombies page, in particular HotD3 and 4 sections.
4. Duplicate pictures wil…Read more >
Hello my AMS friends. We got some sweet sweet information today!
House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn has appeared in multiple D&B locations. So if you're nearby one, you're probably in luck!
But wait! There is more!
Thanks to our member in Discord, luffytam, we've discovered an article full with behind thee scenes production of the game, concept arts and much more! The article is in Japanese so you might need Google Translate to understand it. Also, prepare for a bit of disappointment if you read the article.
That's all for today, folks. Farewell my AMS friends.

Darryl --DarryLazakar (talk) 18:33, September 17, 2018 (UTC)
Hello my AMS friends.
Today is the big day! House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn is officially released in Japan!
For starters, the website has been massively updated, featuring story synopsis, characters, zombies and bosses (of all things?). Be sure to check https://hod.sega.jp to see it! However keep in mind that this only available at desktop/PC, as using the Android version does absolutely nothing.

Hello, my AMS friends. Before we get started, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Darryl, I joined this wiki since this January, ever since Scarlet Dawn was announced, and since then, I've been trying to improve the wiki while also updating Scarlet Dawn page with the latest info, which bring us to today.
The day has finally come, friends. The release date has been confirmed
My friends at House of the Dead Discord discovered this tweet, featuring new poster of the game and what seems to be the date for the 5th location test. But someone had confirmed to us that no, it's not the location test date...
It's the official launch date.
Yes my friends, September 15th is the la…Read more >
We waited patiently for this for some time, over 8 years, and we have a new HotD game in the form of Scarlet Dawn. After most of you gave up too. Anyways, it looks like the game will have a difficulty that fits in somewhere between 2 and 3 due to how many zombies can appear on screen at one time. In that sense, it would make the zombies relatively slow attacking and moving, and possibly give the player and alternative weapon to the pistol, maybe an SMG like 4 or a shotgun like 3.
Moving on, lets make sense of the screenshots we've been given.
The game looks like a reboot so the chance of existing characters making an appearance is quite low, we were lucky to get G in Overkill frankly. I also found a Eurogamer article about the game, which …Read more >
(Will be edited further later on)(Many things will be changed)
The following statements are my ideas of, what we can only hope, future installments for the House of the Dead franchise. These are my ideas and what I like to see and enjoy if a sequel is in development.
The House of the Dead: Overkill 2 is a first-person rail shooter video game for the Wii, PS4 and PC. The game takes place before and during the events of House of the Dead 4 during the "several days earlier" timeline but the setting is in a different country.
The following contains the game's available features:
A grizzly message from Caleb Goldman has broadcasted throughout the entire world:

Well guys, it's finally here: I finally got my hands on a copy of the HOTD 3 Official Guide, and all the enemy names. Attached are all pages in the guide's "Enemy File."
Now here's where Part 2 officially begins: ALL the names are in Japanese, so I'm going to need a Japanese translator to translate the kanjis.
So if anyone wants to step up or knows someone who can finally complete the last leg of this quest, the table's open!Read more >
Also, due to real life stuff, I think it's time I find a co-admin to help run this place.
As such, I'm open to any candidate offers, whether it's from yourself or someone you know.
The requirements are:
1. Must be an active contributor for at least 1-2 years.
2. Must have NEVER pulled any troll moves or purposely posted false info.
3. Be prepared to provide proof of the top two merits
4. Must be backed up by at least two fellow (non-trolling) contributors who've been here for at least a year.
That is all for now. I await your offers.Read more >
Sorry for the long absence. Dealing with a lot more real life stuff now.
I'm about to get my hands on a Japanese House of the Dead 3 official guide. And if my hopes are correct, it should have the ever-elusive enemy names.
With that said, anyone know Japanese or someone who does?Read more >
Im going to try and make a page for all of the enemies in the game
any help would be appreciated :)Read more >
Hey Guys you all didn't know that this year is the 20th anniversary of the game but SEGA didn't announce a sequel for it I got a petition I want everybody to sign I want The House of the Dead 5. Link: The House of the Dead 5 petitiionRead more >
Well firstly, the director of the first four games (Takashi Oda) said that if THoTD5 would be in development, it would be based around The Mystery Man as the game's main antagonist. For this to work, THoTD5 would most likely be set after House of The Dead 3, seeing as we were first introduced to The Mystery Man in one of House of The Dead 3's alternate endings. It may be set a few months to a year after THoTD3 was set, (Halloween 2019) because The Mystery Man is obviously working on something that needed Curien 's antidote? Either that or the bad ending of THoTD5 could involve The Mystery Man escaping. With the antidote, we also learned from THoTD3 that the antidote can cure terminal illnesses but will eventually mutate the person with the…Read more >
It feels like I'm the only person here anymore. I'm seeing less and less edits, not a single blog post in 10 months, it's like everyone has forgot about this website.Read more >
Hello, HoTD fans ! I am from Russia. In my country here no many HoTD arcades, but I played second game arcade in Sochi as a kid and saw third and fourth games in Moscow five years ago. So I fell in love with series and watched walkthrough of all games (including Overkill and Zombie Revenge, but not EX). I played Windows version of HoTD 2 and HoTD 3 too.
I so sad that we don't have HoTD 5 for ten years. Overkill is great game for sure, and it expands series overall story, but without tarot-named bosses and without ties to main series besides G I can't take it like "true" HoTD game. It was not on arcade, I guess too.
So I got some fantasies and guessed about series future.
1. Bosses and design. In my opinion, because all bosses are somehow conn…Read more >
Could somebody who is good at making templates/ knows how to make templates make one about the Magician? I have tried doing this myself but I just cannot figure it out for the life of me. Could somebody make one and out it on the Magician page, please? He's the only boss who doesn't have one.
Thanks, CookieSnookieRead more >
Alright...who keeps doing this? This is getting very frustrating. I keep having to edit the Magician wiki over and over and over again. I can understand it if you see an error or want to add missed info, but right now I am pissed. Why? Because some dope on the wiki is thinking that it would be hilarious if they kept putting disgusting edited photos and gross jokes on the Magician page.
I am sick and tired of having to edit the wiki Magician page every time an idiot decided to put something disgusting onto it. I want it to stop...NOW!Read more >
On Agent G's wikia page, somebody put that in House of the Dead 5, he was to.be voiced by Chris Hemsworth. Is this true? Can somebody tell me what is up with this?Read more >
Do you think The House of the Dead 1 and The House of the Dead 4 + Special will ever come out for the Wii U as a compilation game like The House of the Dead: 2 & 3 Return which is a compilation of The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead 3 that came out for the Wii?Read more >
Recently, I've been +1'd on youtube on a small theory regarding G in THoTD4's 'G ending' which finds G in the courtyard of the Goldman Building staring into a crater and saying his farewells to James Taylor who died in the ending scene.
In this ending, i've found that G has the same model he had in THoTD3 which takes place 16 years after this. However, in THoTD4SP; G has the model used in games 1 and 2; his original model.
My theory is how G managed to change between 2 completely different forms in a small space of time and what i've ended with is that there could be two G's instead of the one. (One G being the mainstream belief)
It has also come to my attention that G had a sinister tone of voice in the G ending but was back to normal when h…Read more >
The House of the Dead 2 is set in Venice (the waterways) and Rome, Italy (the Coloseum). Since the characters drive to the Goldman building, we can infer that in this story, the building located in Italy.
However, in The House of the Dead 4, the city has a different design, resembling London, UK. The buildings, the subway which resembles the London Underground, and many more. Since once again they drive to the Goldman building, it must have been the same place from 2?
A comment on YouTube asked of the Goldman building is both in Italy or UK. Could this be a continuity snarl? Please reply to this thread and tell me what you think.Read more >
There are 3 tarot cards left in the deck.
Who will those 3 bosses be?
Who will return to the THOTD series?
Will the Mystery Man reappear and reveal his true identity?
Will G return?
Will the Magician explode again
Is Goldman dead?
Only Sega (and time) will tell...Read more >
I like the House of the Dead's: 1, 2, 3 and 4/Special
But there's too much G especially in The House of the Dead 4 and Special, I would prefer if Gary Stewart reappeared as the playable character in Special.
Also using G's House of the Dead 4: Special sprite in The House of the Dead 4's ending that he appears in.Read more >
This 'has anyone noticd this?' is referring to the bad endings of THOTDs 1 and 2. If you maximise pictures of the zombified sophie and goldman (v1) you will find that even though most people think that they are primitive and undetailed, (if you look closely) they have hidden features. For example: in THOTD1, Sophie Richards looks like she has a serious virus. (pale and bags under eyes) And Goldman (in a small pic of the bad ending) looks not very detailed but (when looked at closely) you can kind of see that his suit is broken, he has lost his glasses and he has white zombified eyes. Here are the photos maximised to make it look more detailed.
(the goldman photo has been somewhat deleted from the website)
more 'has anypne noticed this' soon…
Read more >
I have only just watched the THOTD4 mystery man ending for the first time in 7 years, and i've noticed something. You know how the mystery man's right leg is damaged? well, it's because (if you look closely), he only has ONE FOOT. The right foot is just a stump, that's why he is constantly limping. All of you
experts probably know what happened (even if it clearly HASN'T been revealed)
And of course, the people who aren't as intrested and the admins for this site will obviously find out when they (SEGA) release THOTD6 in 100 years or so...
thank you and good night.Read more >
It's so boring how sega keeps making the millions of fans in this world wait years for a new house of the dead game so they keep making remakes of the already existing games. including
House Of The Dead 2&3 Return (wii): apart from making two of the house of the deads playable by wii gamers, it's exactly like a dumb bundle that the games' companies make to shut the fans up. They did the same thing with Devil May Cry (capcom)
House of the dead overkill director's cut: House of the dead overkill ruined the series in so many ways; frequent swearing, the only game not to have an arcade release and the bosses aren't called by tarot cards. But then they made a game where the only thing different are that the levels are kind of extended.
what a wa…Read more >
This blog is called bosses' backstories' for a reason, i will be writing about how certain bosses have links to certain things. Ok, lets start off with the final boss of THOTD4, The World
this boss' backstory has a link to Caleb Goldman; the main antagonist from the 2nd and 4th games. If you get an A or B ranking in THOTD4, you will get a rare and "different" ending. Alike the game's standard ending, Goldman is seen in a recording on his hidden PC, saying one final message; "ah, yes, there is one thing I forgot. The human race has not been eliminated. Travel North... hope is such a splendid thing..." Just before saying "hope is such a splendid thing", Goldman takes off his glasses while the camera zooms in...
It is very noticable that he had…

Yes, we have problems. Look at the design of the wiki.
All we have for decoration is a low-res image of 2 dull looking random zombies and for a wiki logo we have the name of the wiki in a fancy font with large capital letters.
If anybody has photoshop, whip up a nice logo for the wiki and show it to a admin please. I will give you a cookie.
Also, if someone finds a nice image for the wiki's background. Find a admin and ask if it can be the background image for the wiki. Whoever does this gets 2 cookies.Read more >
As you may notice with other "Finer" wikis, they lock pages.
Locking a page mean it is cemented into the wiki, so only admins/bureocrats can edit it.
Locking pages will stop vandalism on popular pages/rules and guideline pages.
Locking pages is a winning stragegy!
So admins, get doing it. As us "Lower" users don't really have magic wiki-wide changing skills... Yet.Read more >
Just pointing out here.Yes, this is from the flim.
Right now, we lack images of important moments in the series like when Daniel Curien turns into a zombie in the bad ending of HOTD3.
RIGHT NOW, we have 5 pictures that are not required of this female's buttocks.
WE DO NOT have VITAL IMAGES.
WE HAVE USELESS IMAGES AND NOT USEFUL ONES.
There, I made my point. Go get them vital images and NOT IMAGES OF FEMALE BUTTOCKS!Read more >
Would it be dark? Would it be light-hearted? Would it be the last in the series?
All of these are questions without answer.
As far as my knowledge goes:
Curien's Son: Fine, possibly in a relationship with Lisa
Lisa: Fine, p0ssibly in a relationshop with Curien's Son
The Magician: Probaly fine, I mean. He has came back 3 times now, why not 4?
Dr. Curien: Dead, unless he is brought back again like the Magician
Gary Steward: Unknown, possibly dead, may of been the Star in HOTD 4 so he is probaly dead.
Sophie: Unknown, possibly undead or dead or alive
Goldman: Dead, but he could come back
It could be that Dr. Curien (The wheel of fate) The Magician, The World and The Star could be joined together in one to create the deadliest zombie/b…

Hello Fellow House of the Dead Fans and WIkia Members,
Dean3 here again. I am proud and very pleased to tell you that one of the original admins Oranejo (Oranejo, thank you very much again if you can read this) has given me the position as Admin of this Wikia.
As stated in my previous "Campaign" post, I will now start up the "cleaning up" of this Wikia. So to begin, I would like any active contributors here to post up any (legitimate please) suggestions and pointers so we can come up with ways to initiate this process.
Cheers and let the renovaiton begin!

Hello Fellow House of the Dead Fans and WIkia Members,
Dean3 here. First off, as a fellow House of the Dead fan I want to thank all of you for filling this site with your informative and faithful contributions.
Now for the nitty gritty, As most of you know, this wikia has been without any active admins for quite a while. This has led to a recent increase of vandals, griefing, and users posting noncanonical information on this wiki. As such, I would like to make the bold move to become an "adoptive admin" myself.
In order to do so, the Wikia guidelines state that I must first make this blog post to gather the Wikia Community's opinion and support before making such a request to the main WIki Community central.
Now to list my credentials on why …Read more >

I've gotten a chance to speak with one of the employees of Sega of America during Comic Con about more The House of the Dead games after 4. He said that he will pass on the word to the Digital Manager of HOTD 3 & 4. I came up with an idea similar to the NiGHTS campaign that NiGHTS fans, TRiPPY & DiGi, did awhile back for a NiGHTS into Dreams port in HD. That ended up happening. If classic Sega games can get remastered in HD, so can The House of the Dead. Not only the original two games in HD, let's not forget Loving Deads The House of the Dead EX which was never released outside of European and Japanese arcades. Want to join the campaign, it's easy just visit here http://www.thewebsiteofthedead.com/?p=1512 and sign petitions for both games…Read more >
These are the early drafts of the characters in the first House of the Dead game. They consist of

Dr. Curien as "Dr. A"

They've also included G3's article interview Nishiyama, producer of The House of the Dead 4. Here are some words from the producer himself.
“I personally spend a lot of time in gaming environments with players, in arcades, pubs, bowling centres, just watching the customers, imaging them playing my game in order to build profiles. I would quit this business if I lost this connection to the player, this sense of the games they want to play” ~ Yashuhiro Nishiyama
Wouldn't mind him and Takashi Oda working together again since fans loved the 4th game.Read more >
I need some help: I don't know the full history of the AMS. The reason I'm asking about it is because the page sort of lacks things like establishment date, leaders and so on. I'm gathering as much intel about them as I can so I can put them to the test against their Capcom counterparts. I'm hoping to get in touch with at least the hosts of my favorite show on Spike: Deadliest Warrior and pit the two groups together in a squad-on-squad match and see who's victorious.Read more >
Hello community of The House of the Dead wiki, my name is Patrick aka Kori-Maru on the Sega forums and SegaBits.
