How Matt Helms joined the Tourney
Matt Helms is the 24th assassin in No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. He's an undead pyromaniac with a crazed laugh and a smiling mask.
Matt was abandoned as a young child, and when he was about to die in a house fire, he made a pact with the devil to come back to life and to kill his parents. After doing so, he proceeded to haunt a decrepit old building, possibly his old home, waiting for more people to kill.
In battle, Matt Helms wields a massive flamethrower with a huge, axe-like blade attached to the barrel, He mainly uses slow, powerful swings of his weapon, supplemented with blasts of flame and Molotov cocktails. If he has an opening, he is not above using his great bulk against his enemies, either.
Even though Travis Touchdown stabbed Matt Helms' head and made it explode, Matt still lives as a blood-soaked, naked child. He whispers, "I'm gonna kill you." to an off-guard Travis, but Sylvia shoots Matt Helms before he can do so. As Sylvia explains his backstory to Travis, Matt gets back up and jogs away, laughing insanely.
His house is eventually burned down by the UAA, apparently destroying the ghost forever.
In hell, he learns that one of the Pillar Men, Santana pulled him out of hell for a certain mission.
