Bubba Sawyer or "Leatherface" / "The Cannibal" is one of 20 Killers IconHelpLoading killer.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

He was introduced with PARAGRAPH II: LEATHERFACE™, a Paragraph DLC released on 14 September 2017.

He originates from the 1974 Horror Movie franchise The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.


Overview

The Cannibal is a chainsaw-wielding Killer, able to trigger a deadly frenzy using his Power, immediately downing anyone in its path.

His personal Perks, Knock Out IconPerks knockOut.png, Barbecue & Chilli IconPerks barbecueAndChilli.png, and Franklin's Demise IconPerks franklinsDemise.png, make Survivors easier to locate while robbing them of their tools and abilities.

His Perks revolve around the unknown. Nobody knows where anyone is, especially The Cannibal himself. You are not aware of his presence until his Chainsaw bursts through your spinal cord.

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


Lore

JK CA charPreview.png

Whether killers perform their heinous acts by the compulsions of their diseased minds, or if they are forced into them by external pressures, has long been a matter of debate. But for one killer, nature and nurture are inextricably linked.

Leatherface kills not from a desire to exert his will over others, to satisfy carnal urges, or even to quiet the voices in his head. He kills because he is scared. Scared that others will hurt him; scared that his family will be displeased with him, scared that their shared willingness to eat human flesh will be discovered.

He does as he is told. His family loves him and that is all that matters. Outsiders are a threat, and threats need to be dealt with.

Like those kids that came into the house, uninvited. Walked in like they owned the place. Looked around the house, trying to find out his family’s secrets, no doubt. But Leatherface deals with them, and protects his family just as he’s been taught.

He is not just protector, he has many roles, and each role has its own face. He serves dinner, cares for the family, and dresses well when they eat. His Grandpa and Ma used to care for them all, but Grandpa, he is old now and Ma has been still for a while, so Leatherface and his brothers had to take over. Family is everything to him. Family is security and safety.

But, even though he did his best, one of the kids got away. He tried to stop her, chasing after her as fast as he could, but she had help: another outsider, driving a truck. The evil trucker killed his brother, ran him over like he was a possum. In a fury, Leatherface leapt at him, the saw ready to avenge his family, but the trucker was too quick. He knocked Leatherface aside and turned his own saw against him.

As he watched the outsiders driving away, the rage, grief and pain combined with the worry about what would happen to his family now. They would surely return with the police, and the police would take his brothers, his Grandpa. Without them, what would he do? Without their commands, he would wither and die.

As his world collapsed, Leatherface spun in circles, swinging the saw all around, trying to fight off the myriad external threats that surrounded him.

Then another feeling overtook him. It came from outside his vision, crawling over his skin with cold dread. He realised that no matter what outsiders could do to him, there was something worse, something bigger that lived in the shadows. He was filled with a terror unlike any he had ever felt before. But it was almost comforting, like the fear he'd felt with his family. The fear of disappointing them.

He was brought to a place that was familiar but unknowable, and he instinctively knew what he had to do. He couldn't fail it, the way he had his family. Outsiders would come but he would use his skills to overcome any threats. There would be screaming, but he could make the world quiet again. Until the only sound remaining was the blessed howl of the saw.

Let the outsiders come.

Weapon: The Sledge

Tips

  • While revving the chainsaw, The Cannibal moves slower than survivors. Use the Chainsaw when close to Survivors.
  • Bumping into objects will result in a long stun animation.
  • If Survivor tries to avoid the Chainsaw charge by jumping into a Locker, simply bump into the Locker. If the Survivor exits they will get downed by the Chainsaw, and if they wait it out they will be easy to catch.
  • Use the Chainsaw to counter Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png saves by downing both the rescuer and the rescued Survivor in a single sweep.
    • A Chainsaw Sweep is especially strong against basement rescues.
  • Try to use the Chainsaw Sweep in open spaces rather than in clustered places, as it is easy to bump into objects and get stunned.
    • While it is intended as (and usually is) a penalty, the bonus tantrum duration on Award-winning Chilli FulliconAddon award-winningChilli.png can sometimes prove to be more useful than its main effect, as Survivors will sometimes run into your Tantrum because they don't expect the extra duration.

Trivia

  • Dead by Daylight's Leatherface is based off the Killer mask Leatherface from the 1974 movie The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

    • He is the second licensed Killer to be introduced.
  • The Hillbilly IconHelpLoading hillbilly.png is said to be based directly on Leatherface and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, explaining their similarities in looks and abilities.
  • The Cannibal is one of four Killers that can instantly put Survivors into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png without any Perks IconHelp perks.png or Add-ons IconHelp addons.png.
  • During a Tantrum, The Cannibal's speed is reduced to about that of the Nurse when she is warp fatigued.
  • The Cannibal's Memento Mori animation was the first one in which the Survivor attempts to get up on their own.
  • The Cannibal's Memento Mori is a reference to Kirk's death in the original film.
  • The Cannibal is the fourth Killer to wear face masks.
  • The Cannibal 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.
  • The Cannibal is one of just two Killers without an associated Realm, though unofficially, and due to his promotion-material featuring him in it, the Coldwind Farm can be considered his associated Realm.
