I'm gonna kill you...
~ Matt Helms whispers to Travis Touchdown

Matt Helms is the 24th assassin in No More Heroes 2; Desperate Struggle.


Matt Helms is a demonic battle axe-wielding pyromaniac with a crazed laugh, and a serious messed up mask that resembles a child's face. His back story is what makes him one of the most disturbing assassin in the No More Heroes game series.



Thirty years prior to the Game, Matt Helms was abandoned as a young child. When he was about to die he made a deal with the devil to come back to life and to kill his parents. Because of this, Matt Helms is immortal.
