In No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle it has been 3 years since Travis earned the Number 1 spot in the United Assassins Association ranking, and investments from major corporations have caused the city of Santa Destroy to change... but is it really for the better? You are Travis Touchdown - a punk anti-hero, Japanese anime Otaku, beam katana master and pro wrestling-fanatic assassin. Revenge will bring you back to the UAA tournament. This time though, you begin at the bottom of the ranking and will have to fight your way up to save Santa Destroy and avenge your best friend.
