Type-1210, codenamed "The Empress," (エンプレス) is an agile assassin-like creature wielding a double-ended chainsaw. It is the third boss in both The House of the Dead 4 and Loving Deads: The House of the Dead EX.

The Empress slices apart the environment (and victims) with the chainsaw, which also deflects bullets. The creature's weak point is its head.

Bestiary Overview Edit

The Empress is a large, armored, blue-skinned creature with glowing-red eyes. Its double-ended chainsaw can be pulled apart into two separate chainsaws. With the exception of its head, the creature's body is invulnerable to gunfire.

Despite the chainsaw's size, the Empress can make great leaps and bounds as well as cling to surfaces.

Appearances Edit

The House of the Dead 4 Edit

The Empress was one of several creatures unleashed by the late Caleb Goldman, head of the DBR Corporation and financier of Dr. Roy Curien's research, in a posthumous 2003 outbreak.

AMS agents James Taylor and Kate Green battled the outbreak underground; after discovering a plot to launch nuclear missiles, the pair fought to the surface. While taking the subway to a shopping district, the Empress ambushed them on the train. Upon defeat, the creature fell through an open doorway onto the opposite track, where another speeding train ran it over.

Loving Deads: The House of the Dead EX Edit

The Empress is the boss of the third chapter. It pursues Zobio and Zobiko in a subway. The boss fight is a mini-game in which players use the cabinet's footpetal to dodge obstacles and the Empress' attacks.


  • In terms of appearance and weaponry, the Empress resembles Strength from The House of the Dead 2. However, it is unknown if the two are directly related.
  • Despite its feminine name, the Empress' gender is not specified; James and Kate both refer to the creature as "it".
