Master Dead floats through a room in stage five of the original Splatterhouse, raising the dead with a motion of his hands and a strange chant, even the zombies that Rick has already knocked back down. It requires several jump kicks to kill him.
- In Splatterhouse (2010), this monster seems to be replaced by either Aegis, or the Tentaroid. Both of which can either prevent monsters from being harmed normally or eventually heal them completely.
- Many fans believe that Master Dead is chanting "I'm a Ghoul! Ha!", or "I am cool! Ha!", or even as the Happy Video Game Nerd puts it: "I'M GROVIN'! HAH!!!".
