Psychological Profile

Unfortunately we have never been able to obtain a satisfactory glance into the psyche of Needles Kane (herein referred to as “Sweet Tooth”). Attempts have indeed been made to analyze him, but results proved fatal as he killed our first analyst and critically injured the next one. The third was driven mad by his inability to come to a satisfying analysis and subsequently took his own life.

Patient History

Sweet Tooth was once Marcus Kane, a middle-aged man who lived with his wife and three children and worked as an ice cream man. However Marcus constantly felt a burning emptiness within him that eventually formed into a dark split personality, known as Needles. This other personality wore away at him until he finally snapped, carving his clown mask and letting the other personality take over to become Sweet Tooth. The first time he killed someone he didn't even flinch, doing so as skillfully as a trained surgeon and without regrets. After the first one, he quickly developed an insatiable thirst for blood; it was obvious that he had found his calling in life. Sometimes his victims were meticulously hunted down, but most were randomly chosen and just unlucky to have crossed his path. When he was finally caught after his abundant murders, he was to be executed via electric chair usage. The Preacher cursed Needles Kane, burdening him forever with the flames of Hell, as well as enhancing his physical abilities.

WARNING: Sweet Tooth can breath fire. Do not approach.

II.) Sweet Vehicles

1) "Sweet Tooth" the Ice Cream Truck

Needles Kane has always driven an armored ice cream truck that can be declared as a one man army in a world war. "Sweet Tooth" is an old-fashioned ice cream truck (Chevrolet Step Van) with pink polka dots patterning its white-painted chassis, and a trademark macabre clown head atop the roof for decoration. Its appearance makes it easy to lure his most innocent victims. And more often than not, the freezer is used to store other 'items' besides frozen treats. The ice cream truck favors its power/armor of a tank rather than speed/handling.

1.5) "Sweet Toothimus Prime"

The secondary special weapon is for Sweet Tooth the Ice Cream Truck to transform into a bipedal mecha robot AKA "Sweet Bot". It has the abilities to fly, slam down on the ground to send out a shockwave, and throw its clown head like a grenade. This vehicle also has incredible ramming power when it turbo-charges into opponents with the 'Sixaxis Slam', being able to even inflict heavy ram damage on Darkside. Its extra mass and heightened stats are due to it being a transforming mecha.

2) "Dark Tooth"

Dark Tooth is basically an enlarged and more heavily-armored Sweet Tooth. It is a massive ice cream truck (the size of a large house), at least 6 times the size of Sweet Tooth, and can destroy full-healthy small cars by simply running them over. The monster truck's image is black with pink polka dots, and includes a massive demonic-looking clown head in Sweet Tooth's likeness. This is essentially a large opening-and-closing 'mouth' at the front of the truck, which is Dark Tooth's special weapon.

Atop the store building is a very humongous, flaming, and demonic clown head (that too resembles Sweet Tooth). Being given the name Tower Tooth, it is the tallest vehicle of all the Twisted Metal series.

III.) Henchmen / Clown Gang

No Caption Provided

"The Clowns" is the name of a gang led by Sweet Tooth. They follow Sweet Tooth with a cult-like devotion, going so far as to build a giant armed circus tent on wheels in his honor. It is unknown how Sweet Tooth was able to conjure this group of numerous followers. However, as stated by Calypso, they were each dedicated to serving Sweet Tooth, as they believed he was a 'god' and 'king'.

The Carnival of Carnage

Freakshow Carnival on Wheels
Freakshow Carnival on Wheels

Sweet Tooth's "Carnival of Carnage" is a massive memorial built in his honor; When Needles Kane died, the Clowns became obsessed with preserving his memory of him alive and believed he would rise, stronger and madder than before. Together they built a thematically carnivalesque and brutal mobile fortress, outfitted with various advanced technologies (including sophisticated weapons, dangerous self-supporting traps, and an electric force field).

#Carnival SectionsStart TimeDescription

1

The Underbelly

[0:00]The underside of the fortress is a large self-defense system which consists of an electric cage, multiple machine gun turrets, and flamethrowers. Many Clowns patrol the underbelly of the Carnival in their own personal Sweet Tooth vehicles, guarding the largely open areas of the underbelly.

2

The Pinball Chamber

[0:31]Inside of Sweet Tooth's Carnival of Carnage is a huge room which resembles the inside of a pinball machine, complete with giant bumpers, colorful lights, and large, explosive pinballs. Protected Clowns armed with chainsaws are running around.

3

The Obstacle Course

[1:13]Surrounding the Carnival and leading to the very top of the structure is a line of twisting halfpipes, which are protected by numerous traps (including over-sized maces, flame-spewing exhaust pipes, giant blade-edged fans, and titanic axes).

4

Sweet-in-the-Box

[1:53]The Carnival has its own horrific clown head adorned on top of it (modeled after Sweet Tooth), which is the primary control room. The mechanical head can release a volley of large fireballs from its mouth and fire a barrage of missiles from a cannon within its nose. It also has the assistance of an endless horde of Clown-piloted Sweet Bots, equipped with flight capabilities and time-delayed self-destruct sequences.
