Speed Buster


Speed Buster is the 3rd ranked assassin from the original "No More Heroes". An old lady that lives in the abandoned Speed City, she is one of the oldest assassins seen in the game. She is a misandrist woman that believes men are stubborn and foolish and loves to kill people who don't care about their own lives. She lacks any combat skills whatsoever and also became hard of hearing (or pretends to), however with a powerful Energy Cannon like the Buster Launcher at her disposal, it makes her one of the most dangerous enemies Travis has ever faced.

    • Pikachu with little difficulty as he's far to small and agile to get hit and he'd one-shot an old lady.
