Shadow Puppets are a group of Scout-like TF2 Monsters created by YouTube user Rivfruifv.
Shadow Puppets take the form of completely black, Scouts (male or female) with their hands and head severed, and strings coming out of their neck, elbows, wrists, knees and feet. Females appear to have strings coming out of their breasts in addition. They also appear to walk slowly and unsteadily, with their knees occasionally bent inward.
Personality and Behavior
Shadow Puppets serve as minions under the reign of Silhouette, who creates them from corpses of Scouts. Since they don't have a head, they cannot see, and must use their other senses to detect nearby enemies.
Abilities and Weaknesses
Though they are limited in abilities, Shadow Puppets can pull off quite powerful kicks up-close, and can use their strings as whips to lash at enemies in close- to mid-range. However, they are rather slow, and mindless to their opponent, making them a rather easy foe to defeat.
- The Shadow Puppets are somewhat inspired by the Mannequins from Silent Hill 2.
