Background

When the prisoners' airplane crashed, a number of deadbeats lost their lives... But death is a funny thing and one of the psychopaths known as "Kruger, the Slaughterer" miraculously escaped his final hour, only to be left horribly burnt. Ever since, the nightmare continues throughout the wastelands.

Missions

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street: Block 80 damage with Kruger

Advantages & Disadvantages

Advantages:

  • 3* doesn't take up too much space in a deck.
  • For 3*, 7 Power is great and 4 Damage is okay.
  • His Bonus stops any Attack manipulation, which forces the opponent to Pillz even more.
  • His Ability makes winning easier, as he can reduce the opponent's power by 2 with a minimum of 4, which is much lower than his own Power, forcing them to use more Pillz.
  • It also works as a fallback plan to reduce Damage in case of loss.
  • He is almost as good as Rattle because he isn't ELO-banned, and can replace Shaker.

Disadvantages:

  • His Ability is more effective in Victory, because a minimum of 4 isn't low enough for the Damage reduction to be significant, especially in T1 matches where many cards don't exceed 4 or 5 Damage.
  • He is weak to intense Power manipulation cards which are unharmed by his minimum of 4. Caelus Cr, Oshitsune, and Robb Cr are good examples of this. (He's also weak to cards that have higher base Power and stronger Power Manipulation in general).
  • He's also weak to cards like Ymirah Cr, but especially his fellow 3* Pandora who shut down his Ability and have a higher base Power, therefore they beat him Pill-for-Pill.

Trivia

  • He is based off of Freddy Krueger(similar to Edwin), the main antagonist from the popular horror film series, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Like UR's Kruger, Freddy's face was also badly burnt, and he is considered to be a 'nightmare' to people because he can appear in their dreams. They also share the similar clawed glove as a weapon of choice.
  • Despite sharing the title of The Slaughterer as the killer in True Detectives: Room 13, they are not the same person.
