The Schpeltiger (シュペルタイガー, shuperutaigaa) is a vehicle in No More Heroes and No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle. It is a specialized motorbike used by protagonist Travis Touchdown and has a platinum-white body and red pinstripe markings. The Schpeltiger is equipped with rear twin disk brakes, specially tuned suspension, a long spin arm, and 30-inch tires. It also has four mufflers which extend from the bike's left and right sides. In No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, Travis pilots the revamped Schpeltiger II, which is twice as long as the first make, although the original model makes a cameo in Naomi's Lab, where it is linked to a laptop. The reason for the second version to be made was due to the fact the original was destroyed in the Forest of Bewilderment en route to fighting Dark Star and Jeane.
Downloadable Content Edit
Two different paint-jobs for the Schpeltiger feature as downloadable content in No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise, if obtained from PlayStation Network by customers who pre-order the game through either Gamestop or Amazon. The Gamestop reward decorates the motorcycle with flares, while the Amazon.com bonus turns the Schpeltiger yellow.
The Schpeltiger is named after the "Schpertor" Mortar Headd, a giant mecha from the manga series Five Star Stories.
