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?

Michael Myers or "The Shape" is one of 10 Killers in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

He was featured as a part of The HALLOWEEN® Chapter.

He originates from the 1978 horror movie franchise with the same name, Halloween.

Background

Michael main killer.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.

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

If obtained other Killers are able to find the Shape's perks in their Bloodwebs from that point on.

The Killer’s perks are focused around "Obsessions", just like Michael Myers is obsessed with killing, the Killer picks a Survivor, and tags them as his "Obsession". The Killer only receives one Obsession IconHelp obsession.png per match.

Save The Best For Last

You become obsessed with one Survivor. As long as your Obsession is alive, after being in a chase for 20 seconds the cooldown for your next successful attack is decreased by 30/35/40 %. Your successful attack cooldown remains active for 5 seconds seconds after a chase. Re-initialising a chase before the 5 seconds have lapsed will reset the successful attack cooldown timer. Only one Obsession IconHelp obsession.png per match.

"Death has come to your little town, Sheriff." — Dr. Sam Loomis

"You've fooled them, haven't you Michael? But not me." — Dr. Sam Loomis

Unique to The Shape until Level 35, at which point its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.

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 cooldown animation is the Shape examining his knife.
  • While in Evil Within III, he'll hold his knife upside down.

Evil Within

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 realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil.
~ Dr. Sam Loomis

His special ability is called "Evil Within", a 3-tier gauge which affects the Shape's ability to hunt differently for each respective phase. The Shape can stalk survivors, which fills up his current Evil Within phase. The Shape gains pure benefit from going up Evil Within stages, with the exception of his terror radius, which increases for each stage. Any survivors currently being stalked will be highlighted brightly, and more than one survivor can be stalked at once. Survivors that are hiding in foliage (corn, grass, shrubs, etc.) or are breaking line of sight will either delay or stop The Shape from gaining any points from stalking them.

Tier Description

    • His full name is thus Michael Audrey Myers
  • The Shape is the first Killer to be introduced as paid DLC.
  • The Shape is the first killer in a paid DLC that can be accessed without paying - using the Black Splinter IconFavors blackSplinter.png offering.
  • Michael Myers was the murderer featured in the Halloween horror franchise. In the first film, he kills his older sister and is sent to a mental hospital for almost two decades before escaping, only to return to his hometown on Halloween night and begin hunting the friends and family of Laurie Strode.
  • Michael'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 Shape's Stain is invisible at Evil Within I.
  • The Shape is the only Killer with the ability to vault through windows faster than any other Killer, to the point of being only slightly slower than a medium vault of a Survivor or even a fast vault on Tier III of Evil Within.
  • The music that plays when The Shape reaches Evil Within III is from the movie Halloween.
    • When Survivors are being stalked by The Shape when he is close to the next Evil Within Tier, Survivors will 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 through the whole map. It is also the only audio indication of a Killer's power that does not get altered relative to distance, (i.e. The Nurse's muffled screeches upon blinking far away.)
    • The Terror Radius music that Survivors hear when near The Shape is a remake of the original Halloween track, The Hanger. The in-game track is unreleased and locked in the game files, data-miners have released it recently on the Steam Forums.
  • The Shape has a much smaller Terror Radius than the other Killers, depending on his ability's Tier.
  • The Shape has a small animated trail behind his knife when he swings.
  • In Evil Within I and II, The Shape holds his knife to his side, whereas in Evil Within III, he holds his knife up to his shoulder with the blade pointing outwards.
  • 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 cleanest Killer apart from a blood stain on his left shoulder and on his knife.
  • The Shape is one of three 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. The other two Killers being The Hillbilly IconHelpLoading hillbilly.png and The Cannibal IconHelpLoading cannibal.png.
  • The Shape is one of the few Killers whose default head skin is not named after the Killer's first name (the other being the Nurse IconHelpLoading nurse.png.)
  • The Shape is the second Killer to wear a face mask.
  • The Shape is one of 7 Killers without glowing eyes, the others being The Trapper IconHelpLoading trapper.png, The Nurse IconHelpLoading nurse.png, The Hag IconHelpLoading hag.png, The Huntress IconHelpLoading huntress.png, The Cannibal IconHelpLoading cannibal.png and The Nightmare IconHelpLoading nightmare.png.
    • His left eye can be seen through his mask in the menu.
    • Under certain lighting conditions, both of his eyes are visible through the mask.
  • The Shape is the only Killer right now that have Add-ons that grant him the ability to kill Survivors.
  • The Shape was the first licensed Character alongside Laurie Strode.

Tips

  • If you are stalking Survivors and you are nearing the limit for your current Evil Within Tier, all Survivors being stalked will hear an eerie audio cue a few seconds before the Tier ascends.
  • It is practically impossible for every Survivor to hide from you well enough to the point where you cannot stalk them enough to get Evil Within II. However, they will do their best to slow it down and make it as difficult as possible.
  • Note that on Coldwind Farm, the corn will shield Survivors from stalking, even if they are visible normally. An exception is if you stalk from a high ground, and a Survivor is not crouched - they will be always visible in any nearby cornfield.
  • Note that you can "stock" on Evil Within. Essentially, you can leave Evil Within II on 99% and you will have a full Evil Within III to use it the instance you see a Survivor.
  • When in Evil Within I, your Terror Radius may be minuscule but your breathing can be heard well before it. Many experienced Players will be wary upon starting a match, and will be on the lookout for Killers in the distance. A way to mitigate this is to stalk Survivors behind cover, or on high places. Such examples are behind trees, on top of hills, on top of buildings, etc. Though it won't guarantee to stop them from noticing you, it is far better compared to walking up to a fairly close distance and watching them out in the open.
  • The Shape is ironically one of the easiest Killers to spot, as his near fluorescent white mask is very distinguishable.
  • Survivors often try to hide behind Pallets IconHelp pullDown.png, but you can still stalk them.
  • When stalking, your vision is severely tunnelled and your movement speed is reduced significantly.
  • The unique Wraith IconHelpLoading wraith.png Teachable Perk Shadowborn IconPerks shadowborn.png will increase your field of view, making stalking slightly easier.
  • The unique Doctor IconHelpLoading doctor.png Teachable Perk Monitor & Abuse IconPerks monitorAndAbuse.png will increase your field of view when you are not in a chase, making stalking slightly easier. It will also reduce the Terror Radius in that situation, making sneaking up very easy.
