Ermen Palmer is a fictional character in the 2007 video game No More Heroes. He is an assassin who breaks into Travis Touchdown's motel room, attempting to kill him while he is defenseless on the toilet; his age, as well as his nationality, are unknown, although he is presumably American. The untrue ending concludes before they fight, and the "real" ending sees Palmer being split in half by Henry. It is notable that all fights up to this point have had the higher-ranked assassin pick the locale, although since the nature of the United Assassins Association is debatable, Palmer could be a rogue assassin or someone looking to enter the ranks just as Travis did.


  • Ermen Palmer is a homage to Emir Parkreiner from killer7, one of Goichi Suda's previous productions. Since that character is legally owned by Capcom, this may be the only way Emir could appear.
