How Helter-Skelter joined the Tourney

Helter-Skelter is a fictional character in the 2007 video game No More Heroes. He is a cigar smoking albino garbed in the manner of a cowboy and ranked eleventh in the United Assassins Association until he is killed by Travis Touchdown before gameplay begins.

His age and nationality, as well as whether or not Helter-Skelter is his real name are unknown, though he seems to also go by the title of "the Drifter." Despite his large arsenal of weaponry which included dual revolvers and a special set of gauntlets that housed missiles, mini-guns and blades, he was unable to stop Travis from decapitating him in an anime-like fashion. He is named after the Beatles song "Helter Skelter."

Years after he lost his life, he was resurrected by Quan Chi. Helter-Skelter drifted to China and began to extort business on the whereabouts on Travis Touchdown. He encountered the goose chef, Mr. Ping hoping to get promising leads.
