The Night Ripper is the killer in The Night Ripper. He's an homage to The New York Ripper.
He's a Jack the Ripper-esque serial killer who preys upon the population of New York City's slums, mainly prostitutes. He wears a long black coat, shoes, gloves, hat, and a duck mask. He wields a flashlight and uses a pocket knife to kill his victims.
He assumes Rachel is a prostitute in her late-night walk home, and thus relentlessly hunts her in his infamous black Sedan.
Throughout the game, there's a DJ heard over the radio trying to justify The Night Ripper's actions as a conservative justice. It's heavily implied the DJ is the Night Ripper's public alter-ego.
- Night Ripper originally had a red coat. It was replaced with a black coat in the final version, as it seemed more fitting.
