Michael Myers

Jump to: navigation, search
Something, or rather someone, is here now. I've never seen this... Shape before. A man hiding behind a mask. He comes with a determination. But more worrying, he comes with an apparent grasp of the hunt. He does not strike me as someone who even went unwillingly to this place. Is there more to this being than I can fathom?
~ Unknown (Potentially Benedict Baker)
I met him, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realised that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

Michael Myers or "The Shape" is one of 18 Killers IconHelpLoading killer.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

He was introduced as the Killer of CHAPTER II: The HALLOWEEN® Chapter, a Chapter DLC released on 25 October 2016.

He originates from the 1978 Horror Movie franchise with the same name, Halloween.


Overview

The Shape is a haunting Killer, intent on monitoring Survivors from a distance to feed his Power. The more he stalks, the stronger and faster he becomes.

His personal Perks, Save the Best for Last IconPerks saveTheBestForLast.png, Play with Your Food IconPerks playWithYourFood.png, and Dying Light IconPerks dyingLight.png, select one Survivor to become his Obsession and will trigger deadly effects based on the Obsession Status.

His Perks are focused around Obsessions, just like Michael Myers is obsessed with killing, the Killer picks a Survivor, and tags them as his Obsession.

Difficulty rating: Intermediate (Community) / Hard (Developer)
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play him and use his Power effectively)


Lore

SH charPreview.png

Some humans are simply bad seeds. Seeds infused with a distilled and pure form of evil.

Michael Myers is one of those seeds. He had no issues with causing the pain of others. Instead, it was exactly what he sought. But even life can be tough on those with minds filled with terror. The difference is just how one goes about to solve those problems. For Michael, he had to kill to find some inner peace. As he took his sister’s life, the police found a silent boy dressed as a clown at the scene.

When one stumbles upon a growing fire, one does not pour gasoline on it. But this was an action taken by officials that had no idea how it would shape this demon in the boy's body. Sending Michael to a mental institution was a feeble attempt to save the child. Unsuccessful therapy and nightly screams just made him even more introverted and deranged.

People hoped that Michael Myers would end up a parenthesis, soon to be forgotten and buried, a failure that soon were to rot away. But then...he escaped.


The Shape's Perks

These are Perks which start off only appearing in The Shape's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. After achieving Level 30, Teachable versions of these Perks can be found:

  • Save the Best for Last - Level 30
  • Play with Your Food - Level 35
  • Dying Light - Level 40

Once obtained, other Killers will be able to find The Shape's Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards

Load-out

Weapon: Kitchen Knife

MM Knife01.png

The Kitchen Knife is the Shape's primary weapon. An oversized blade with devastatingly sharp edges.

  • If he gets a successful hit on a Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png, the attack cool-down animation is the Shape examining his knife.
  • While in Evil Within III, he'll hold his knife upside down.

Power: Evil Within

Evil Within is The Shape's main Power, a 3-tiered Power Gauge, changing how he hunts for Survivors with each respective Tier. The Shape can stalk Survivors, which fills up the Power Gauge. The Shape gains pure benefit from going up Evil Within Tiers, with the exception of his Terror Radius, which increases with each Tier:

Tier Description Audio Cues
FulliconPowers stalker1.png
Evil Within Tier-up Warning (no longer used)

FulliconPowers stalker2.png
  • Moderately reduced Terror Radius (16 metres)
  • Normal Movement Speed (115 %)
  • Normal Lunge duration (0.5 seconds)
  • Slightly increased Vaulting Speed (1.48 seconds)
Evil Within II Theme

FulliconPowers stalker3.png
  • Normal Terror Radius (32 metres)
  • Normal Movement Speed
  • Slightly increased Lunge duration (0.6 seconds)
    • Attacks deal double damage
      • Lasts for 60 seconds (default)
  • Moderately increased Vaulting Speed (1.275 seconds).
Evil Within III Theme

Evil Within III Tier-down

Power Trivia

  • Each Tier of Evil Within requires The Shape' to gain 5 points from draining evil from the Survivors.
    • The amount of total evil available in a Trial (40.4 points) is independent to how many Survivors load into the Trial, the evil is always evenly distributed across them at the start of the Trial.
      • If all 4 Survivors load into the Trial, each Survivor carries enough evil to be equivalent to 10.1 points.
  • The Shape can stalk Survivors within a range of 2.5 to 39.85 metres. The stalk's efficiency depends on The Shape's distance to the stalked Survivor, ranging from 100 % at closest range to 1 % at farthest range. With a stalk rate efficiency of 100 %, it takes The Shape 6 seconds to fill his stalk meter.
  • The Shape's movement speed is moderately reduced (set to 60 % of his base Movement speed) while stalking passively (no Survivor in his FOV) and tremendously reduced (set to 20 % of his base movement speed) while stalking actively (Survivor in his FOV).
  • Upon reaching Evil Within II, The Shape can never fall back to Evil Within I.
  • The colour of a Survivor's outline while being stalked determines how much Evil is left in them, ranging from white (full) to red (empty).

Power Change Log

Patch 3.3.0
  • Evil Within I now applies the Undetectable IconStatusEffects undetectable.png Status Effect.
    • The Shape's Terror Radius in Evil Within I is now reduced to 0 metres from formerly 6 metres.
    • Evil Within I no longer grants immunity from detection Perks, meaning that Premonition IconPerks premonition.png and Spine Chill IconPerks spineChill.png, which previously would not detect him in Evil Within I, will now announce his approach.

Stance

The Shape's stance or posture changes with each Tier of Evil Within and is also affected by certain Add-ons and Perks. A watchful Survivor can use this to their advantage, to be warned of potential danger.

Evil Within I

  • Left hand relaxed and moving freely
  • Blade pointing slightly outwards and moving freely when chasing
  • Slightly stiff walk

Evil Within II

Similar to the Evil Within I idle stance

  • Left hand is clenched to a fist
  • Moves a lot more freely and similar to The Trapper IconHelpLoading trapper.png

Evil Within III

Similar to the Evil Within II stance

  • Blade raised, pointing downwards

Unlockables affecting his Stance

  • Vanity Mirror FulliconAddon vanityMirror.png
    • Evil Within II stance remains the same as the Evil Within I stance.
  • Judith's Tombstone FulliconAddon judithsTombstone.png
    • All stances are the same as the default Evil Within I stance: relaxed left hand
    • The angle at which he holds his knife on Evil Within III changes and the relaxed hand shows his readiness to grab Survivors
  • Play with Your Food IconPerks playWithYourFood.png
    • Each Token increases how much he clenches his left hand into a fist if he's in a stance that features a relaxed left hand.

Trivia

  • The Shape is the first Killer to be introduced as paid DLC.
    • The Shape was also the first licensed Character to be released, alongside Laurie Strode.
  • The Shape's in-game name is a reference to the original 1978 Movie. During the credits, the role of "Michael Myers" is instead credited as "The Shape".
  • The music that plays when The Shape reaches Evil Within III is from the movie Halloween.
    • Originally, when The Shape was about to reach the next Evil Within Tier, the stalked Survivor would hear a remade version of The Hedge, which incidentally plays in the film whilst the protagonist Laurie Strode is being stalked.
    • Whenever The Shape changes tiers of Evil Within, a small tune following the Halloween main theme plays throughout the Trial Grounds.
    • The Shape's Terror Radius audio is a remake of the original Halloween track, The Hanger.
  • The Shape has a small animated trail behind his knife when he swings.
  • In Evil Within III, The Shape lunges for 0.2 seconds longer than when in Evil Within II giving him additional reach.
  • In Evil Within III, The Shape's knife is in the way of The Stain and occasionally reflects its red light.
  • The Shape's breathing is slightly different to how it is heard in the original film.
  • The Shape's Memento Mori is possibly a reference to how he kills people in the original film, as he often grabs people by the neck and either stabs them or simply suffocates them.
  • The Shape, in terms of appearance, is the cleanliest of the Killers, apart from a small blood stain on his left shoulder and one on his knife.
  • The Shape was the second Killer to wear a face mask.
  • The Shape is the only Killer to date to have Add-ons that grant him the ability to kill Survivors.
  • The Shape is one of the most human-looking Killers in the game, as he doesn't have any unnatural alterations to his appearance like most of the other Killers.
