Comment[edit]

I'd argue for removing Hal Jordan now that his time as Paralax (sp?) has been retconned and blamed on the yellow impurity. wasserperson 04:16, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Magneto[edit]

Why do I not see Magneto (comics) on this list? He killed hundreds of humans in just the Planet X storyline alone.

CfD result[edit]

Please, delete this category, it's pointless, some of the characters listed did'nt kill anyone

Leatherface?[edit]

why is leather face listed?, he's more of a serial killer —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 209.244.187.117 (talk) 21:51, 28 February 2007 (UTC).

Light Yagami[edit]

why isn't light yagami from the anime/manga series "Death Note" appear in this list?

Methos[edit]

Methos from Highlander: The Series should be on the list as he admitted to being a mass murderer during his days as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Mnquipot (talk) 15:36, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

CJ[edit]

why is CJ from San Andreas on this list? he's the hero!(that's right the hero!) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.235.162.152 (talk) 23:16, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

LOTR[edit]

Witch-King of Angmar ? Balrog of Moria ? Morgoth ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.191.39.41 (talk) 11:19, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

mass murderers from gundams[edit]

Where's Char Aznable and Rau Le Crueset from gundam seed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Red aries (talkcontribs) 19:39, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Pyramid Head[edit]

I'd like to call into question his inclusion in this category. You only ever see him kill one person. Admittedly it's multiple times, but... WarriorKalia (talk) 02:39, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

4 people?[edit]

Hi.

Excuse me but 4 People? That`s a serial killer at the most. If you were at home or at work and 4 people were standing outside, would you say there is a "mass" outside, of course not, that`s not even a crew, i know is subjective but mass should be at least 50.

See Mass murder. It defines it as the killing of four or more people at one time. AnemoneProjectors 01:07, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
It`s true, my bad. Zidane tribal (talk) 02:20, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Iffy distinction between "mass" and "serial" fictional killers[edit]

You write up a very neat distinction between categories but things are rarely this black and white. In fiction, a killer might kill 4+ people in multiple situations...does that make him a "mass murderer" or a "serial killer"?

For example, Michael Myers, Freddie Krueger or Jason...if you are going to take one film (or one book or TV episode) as an "incident", then they are fit your mass murderer category. But considering that there are many movies within the film series, these killings, as a whole, cover a wide range of time (not an isolated incident) which would make them a "serial killer".

And in practice, even if your distinction was crystal clear, most people are not reading and considering your thoughtful words. They come across either the "mass" or "serial" category and apply it to fictional characters who've killed multiple people, regardless of how many incidents the murders cover. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 16:08, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

What about biblical characters?[edit]

Shouldn't Moses, Elijah, and YHWH be in this category? ♆ CUSH ♆ 05:23, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
