Deadliest Fiction Wiki

Name and rank soldier! You cannot tell me, can you, fella? Oh yeah... I know why... It's because you're Viet Cong! I'm right, aren't I? You are nothin' but a filthy communist!
— Cliff Hudson

Cliff Hudson was a Vietnam War vet and one of the many psychopaths that roamed around the town of Willamette during the zombie outbreak.

After having fought in the Vietnam War, Hudson suffered from PTSD and frequent panic attacks. This worsened during the Willamette Incident where zombies killed and ate his granddaughter causing Hudson to think he was back in Vietnam fighting in the war. During the outbreak, he captured multiple survivors he believed to be Viet Cong.

Eventually, Frank West, who was reporting on the outbreak, got word of Hudson's actions and decided to investigate. Upon encountering Frank, Hudson thought Frank was Viet Cong as well and attacked him only to be mortally wounded. Dying, Hudson came to his senses and explained his actions to Frank before giving him a key to the closet where he had trapped his 'prisoners of war'. Out of respected, Frank closed the eyes of the dead veteran.

Battle vs. Takao Hiyama (by SPARTAN 119)[]

Takao Hayama walked into a home improvement store, having slashed his way through countless zombies with his Bowie Knife. Hanging on the ceiling of the store, Takao could see numerous decapitated zombies hanging from the cieling.

Suddenly, a voice rang out. "Name and rank, soldier", the voice said.

Takao turned to see a man in bloodstained clothing, armed with a machete with a bloody blade, and several pipe bombs at his side.

"You can't tell me, can you", Cliff Hudson said, "Because your Viet Cong."

Takao raised his knife into an aggressive position and ran at Hudson. Cliff blocked the attack, and took a swing with his machete, only for Takao to jump backwards and attempt to thrust his knife at him. The attack grazed Cliff's side.

Cliff retreated behind a shelf, with Takao in chase. Takao turned the corner and found... no one. Takao got out his "future diary".

The diary said "3:30 pm, September 21, 2xxx, corner victim on top of shelf and cut his throat".

Takao began to climb up the shelves, however, as he was about half way up, something landed below him, a pipe bomb. The pipe bomb exploded, knocking over the shelving unit and injuring Takao.

Takao crawled out from the shelving unit. His "future diary" read "Victim enters ductwork under floor, corner him against a went, killing him by stabbing him in the heart."

Cliff Hudson, meanwhile, climbed out of ductwork and spotted Takao, who had just crawled out of the vent. Cliff lunged at Takao and stabbed him in the chest with his machete, before he pulled the blade out of the wound.

Takao's diary now read "DEAD END".

For good measure, Cliff stuck a pipe bomb into the chest wound and lit the fuse. A few seconds later, Takao Hayama's torso disappeared in a red mist.

WINNER: Cliff Hudson
