Travis Touchdown v. Death Metal is the second major cinematic event in No More Heroes, which also includes a short bridge from the previous scene, the introduction. In the bridge following the introduction, Travis Touchdown ambushes the residence of the tenth ranked assassin in the United Assassins Association, Death Metal. After the player makes it through the Townsend Residence, the second, "true" cinematic versus Death Metal is seen. In it, Travis confronts the assassin who is relaxing in a foldout chair looking on the scenery while drinking wine. Travis and Death Metal debate over the true nature of "Paradise" and after giving Travis two chances to flee the premises safely, Death Metal prepares himself to kill him like the countless other aspiring assassins who come looking to enter the ranks of the UAA. After brandishing his brute beam katana, the Orange II, Death Metal leads Travis to the patio where they will duel.

The cinematic ends here and allows the player to battle Death Metal, but throughout the battle a voice over of Travis' thoughts can be heard, though this is the only battle where Travis' thoughts are revealed.

After the player defeats Death Metal successfully, a third cinematic is seen, in which Travis dodges a deadly slash and retaliates by slicing Death Metal's hands off at the wrists. His hands, still clenching the beam katana which has purged into the ceiling, cause a drizzle of blood to fall. As Death Metal makes recites his final words, he seems to ignore or simply not mind the pain of the spraying of blood from his dismembered wrists. Travis closes Death Metal's life with another mention of Paradise before decapitating him.

The final cinematic sees Silvia Christel, accompanied by the UAA body disposal crew consisting of Talbot and Weller come to congratulate Travis on his victory, and discuss accommodations for his future rise in the ranks. Eventually, Travis tries with minimal success to have Silvia agree to the two having sex, on the condition that Travis becomes the first-ranked assassin in the UAA, though Silvia does not explicitly reject the idea.

DialogueEdit

Part oneEdit

Travis Touchdown crashes through the front gate of the Townsend Residence, and leaping from the Schpeltiger, decapitates two of Death Metal's thugs.

Fuckhead.
Travis Touchdown

Travis approaches a third, apparently terrified thug who guards the front door of the residence.

Yo. Help me out here. Where's this Death Metal dude?
— Travis Touchdown

The trembling thug stammers in fright, failing to give Travis an answer.

Bad answer.
— Travis Touchdown

After slicing through the door, tearing through the thug in the process, Travis kicks apart the remains of the door and breaches the residence.

It's game time!
— Travis Touchdown

Silvia's phone callEdit

After Travis reaches the residence's great hallway when he receives an encouraging call on his cell phone from Silvia Christel.

Hey Travis? Your ranked fight begins just up ahead. Win, and you will be 10th. Lose, and hell awaits. Are you up to this? Need a bathroom break? Whatever you need to do, do it now. Your opponent, some call him the Holy Sword. He is good. But I know you can take him. You are the man! Eye of the tiger! He only looks tough because his mother was an ugly bitch. Take it to the red zone! Assassin's way at full throttle! Unleash your power! Show no mercy! Bring me Death Metal's head! Enter when you are prepared to fight. I believe in you and your Force. Now off to the Garden of Madness...
Silvia Christel

Part twoEdit

Quite beautiful, wouldn't you say? Paid for with the lives of many. When you have the strength to take life for yourself... That is true wealth. I am free of desire. So long as I have this scenery to look upon. I need nothing more. Please, leave me be.
— Death Metal
You're the one leaving... In a body bag.
— Travis Touchdown
I'll only say this once more. Leave here now!
— Death Metal
Me, leave? You obviously don't know me.
— Travis Touchdown
You don't get it, do you?
— Death Metal
Hey, you know what Paradise is, right?
— Travis Touchdown
Paradise?
— Death Metal
This is Paradise -- the place where dreams are fulfilled. Well, you've had your dream, old man. Time to wake up!
— Travis Touchdown
This is no Paradise.
— Death Metal
All right. Then what is it?
— Travis Touchdown

Death Metal stands from his chair as his robe slides off, revealing his tattoo.

A place to die.
— Death Metal
I'm glad you and I are on the same page here.
— Travis Touchdown
So naive. You have no idea, do you? What a pity. You make an old man cry. Arrogant, crude little shits like you come around from time to time.
— Death Metal

Death Metal begins to lead Travis up stairs towards the patio.

Listen well, young one. The wall is high... Higher than you will ever know.
— Death Metal

Death Metal draws his beam katana, the Orange II.

Ultimate sacrifice is sublime. Now draw.
— Death Metal
You can take that to your grave.
— Travis Touchdown

Travis' thoughtsEdit

During Travis' battle with Death Metal, his thoughts can be heard aloud:

This count... I feel as if I'm looking at my future self. Mega bucks, big ass house, fast cars... Dining in style with a world class chef and a trusty nutritionist counting every calorie. A team of hot yoga instructors to keep me in shape. Nurses to attend to my body... Maids and loyal servants at my beck and call. On the weekends, tanned babes knocking on my door every two hours. Every day full of excitement and luxury. That'd be the life. Everything in its right place. It's the perfect life. It's the life for winners. That'll be my life! I thirst for selflessness. Hypocrites lusting for their own desires get killed by young rookies like me. This is how it goes down. And for the old killers? They'll croak anyway. I guess you can call this a comedy. I realize there's really nothing here for me. But what else can I do but keep going? Maybe I should have been a little more careful before I jumped in. Gotta find the exit. Gotta find that exit to Paradise. But, I can't see it. Can't see anything. There's this sense of doom running down my spine, like it's... Like it's trying to suck the life out of me. I need to get rid of it before I bail. Something deeper... Deeper than my instincts is taunting me. Can't find the exit. Can't find the exit. Can't find the exit. Can't find the exit. Can't find the exit.
— Travis Touchdown

Part threeEdit

Following Travis' penultimate attack on Death Metal, rendering his hands dismembered at the wrists:

Extraordinary. The moment I've been waiting for. The name "Holy Sword" is now yours.
— Death Metal
You're joking, right? I don't care about titles or power. I just wanna be number one.
— Travis Touchdown
Then master the ways of the assassin.
— Death Metal
Here's your ticket to Paradise, old man!
— Travis Touchdown

Travis then decapitates Death Metal.

Part fourEdit

After the player obtains the "Maximum vitality" increase, an Access Point opens. The final cinematic begins once the player enters the Access Point.

Nice kill, Travis. I didn't think you had it in you. It was rather... Exciting. Congratulations. You are now ranked 10th.
— Silvia Christel
10th, huh? What? Do I get anything?
— Travis Touchdown
Hmm... How about some cash? That should help you pay the bills.
— Silvia Christel
I'm not feeling the sense of accomplishment that I should here. So I just gotta do this a few more times, right?
— Travis Touchdown
If you so choose, yes.
— Silvia Christel
And you will keep your promise?
— Travis Touchdown
There is nothing the Association cannot do.
— Silvia Christel
And if I refuse?
— Travis Touchdown
As the 10th ranked assassin, you are now a target for those who want to replace you. Anytime, anywhere. Number eleven could be right around the corner, ready to put a knife in your eye.
— Silvia Christel
So what you're tellin' me is that I gotta continue fighting. There's no way out of this. You set me up, bitch!
— Travis Touchdown
Quit your bitching and get with the program. There's only one road out of here. No turning back.
— Silvia Christel
OK, how 'bout this? If I become number one, will you do it with me?
— Travis Touchdown
Mmm... Maybe... Maybe not...
— Silvia Christel
C'mon! Just once!
— Travis Touchdown
