Vikke (ビッケ Bikke) AKA "The King of Viking Metal" is one of the Dark Purveyors seen in the game Lollipop Chainsaw. He is the second of the Dark Purveyors encountered by Juliet Starling as part of a ritual enacted by Swan. Much of Vikke's time on Earth is spent causing a large storm over San Romero High School via his flying longship. He wields a large battle axe that releases lightning wherever he strikes.
His name is pronounced "Veek" in the original Japanese language version and "Vee-Kay" in the English language version.
After returning from The Junkyard, Juliet and Nick begin to discuss the very serious of issue Nick's bodiless condition. After Juliet obliviously refuses to acknowledge Nick's situation, Nick attempts to angrily explain his demands. But this is interrupted when blood suddenly lands on his face. Juliet's attention is then brought abrupt, as she begins to inspects the cloudy skies. A mysterious ship is then detected, revealing a great Viking zombie, with his pet and various other zombies that are providing the movement of the ship.
Lightning is suddenly striking several times near Juliet's and Nick's location, where Juliet luckily evades the attack. After the evade, Juliet then notices that Cordelia, her eldest sister, is riding on the back of the ship. Cordelia then releases a present, gliding in safety with the use of a parachute. Juliet then plans to retrieve the gift, along with the rescuing of her eldest sister.
As Juliet makes her way to reaching the present, lightning from Vikke is repeatedly struck as she dashes throughout the Stadium. Near the end of Stage 2, Juliet rediscovers the ship, flying over the Stadium. But she doesn't truly acknowledge it until she accomplishes the Baseball Minigame. After meeting up Cordelia at the Swimming Pool, the ship suddenly takes sail and begins to abandon the area. Cordelia and Juliet successfully execute a clever maneuver, and Juliet then lands on the top of the ship. Once the two begin to confront, a boss fight begins.
Juliet saws off sections of Vikke's body, he continues to battle with hysterical strength. At his most desperate, his head grows in size and exposes to Juliet the true limits of his rage. When Vikke is finally defeated when his jaw is separated from his head, his pet Yumil tried its chances, but unfortunately was easily defeated with a swift kick. After this event, Vikke's ship was destroyed when it lost control and landed at the O'Bannon Farm.
As with the other Dark Purveyors, Vikke's attire is closely tied with his predilect genre of music, noting his helmet with goat horns. His most prominent feature is the large viking axe he holds, which acts as a dual lighting rod system that lets him absorb and control lightning. His second most prominent accessory is Yumil, the living bear pelt draped over his right shoulder, which he uses in his final attack against Juliet. Vikke's eyes are an eerily pale icy blue and are adorned with black makeup underneath them. His skin is a sickly white and he is massive in size, bigger than the other Purveyors. His stomach is also split open, displaying his guts and intestines. His helmet also appears to be stapled on.
Vikke is loudmouthed and boastful, often proclaiming his status as a metal god and showing off his impressive physical strength. He is, however, somewhat dimwitted, as demonstrated by how easily Juliet can attack him from behind before he realizes where she is.
Hysterical Strength: Despite his zombie form, Vikke has shown incredible strength prior to his introduction. Being quick in reflexes and towering over others.
Levitation: Vikke has shown the ability to float at certain moments. During the first phase he will commonly float back to return to the balcony of his ship; He levitates his upper half when he is sawed in half in phase two; and his head is levitating during phase three.
Lightning Strikes: As Juliet is dashing throughout the roofs of the buildings, Vikke may strike the player with lightning that will cause them to become stunned and fall to the ground. Juliet's skeleton and Nick's skull are both visible as the lightning surges through them. This same animation is used when she is hit by the Axe Shock attack as well.
Physical Growth: During Phase three, Vikke will have shown to have increased by size, primarily only his head.
Pain Tolerance: When Vikke is amputated or dismembered several times, he shows no signs of serious injury. He just appears to continue attack with fierce force actually appearing stronger than before.
Drum Blast: Vikke begins to play a drum solo, which charges up until he finally unleashes a powerful lightning bolt that deals heavy damage to Juliet if she isn't dodging when it is cast.
Battery Zombies: Flying viking zombies emerge from behind Vikke's drums and attempt to ram into Juliet, upon which they explode. They can easily be dodged but if they strike ground near Juliet, their explosion might still deal damage.
QTE Leg Kick: During Phase 2, Vikke will scream in order to summon his legs to kick Juliet. A QTE will occur that Juliet must evade.
Metal Lightning: Used only during the third stage. Vikke charges lightning in his mouth, which he eventually shoots as a beam at Juliet. He follows her with the lightning blast for a moment before stopping, upon which he is briefly immobile and more vulnerable to attack.
Vikke appears to symbolize Swan's most inner, pure, dark emotions. This can be shown with Vikke's most apparent thunderous rage, his hysterical strength, and lack of critical wits. Vikke's courageous yet persistent violence towards Juliet could be symbolic of how Swan was determined to conduct his diabolical plans due to the massive strength of his own personal rage.
He is loosely based on the Draugr, a race of intelligent zombies from Norse mythology.
His head profile bears some minor resemblance to Metalocalypse protagonist and Dethklok vocalist Nathan Explosion. Alternatively, he bears some resemblance to the controversial Burzum vocalist Varg Vikernes during Varg's younger days in the Black Metal scene.
Vikke is capable of fusing his drum sticks into one weapon.
Stelpa, Vikke's name for Juliet, is Icelandic for "girl". Skraelings, his name for everyone else, is Icelandic for "little men".
Concept Art shows that Vikke's Battle Axe was not as big as what is seen in the game. He also appears to be missing his gold ring on his left bicep and Yumil looks less "lively" and possibly had an originally lesser significant role in the game.
Vikke's attacks are the only electric attacks that cause Juliet's skeleton (and Nick's skull) to be visible. All electric attacks from other bosses merely make her fall on her back instead.
