Margaret Moonlight is the 4th ranked assassin in No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. She is a blond-haired woman dressed in the gothic lolita style. Her stage is the rooftop of Supermarket Guan's, under the moonlight. Her weapons are two small, bladed scythes that also have built-in rifles, called Le Croissant d'Ange. The song she sings as she battles Travis, called "Philistine", is the last thing her victims ever hear. During the pre-battle cutscene inside the booth, Sylvia states that she had been put into a week long coma from hearing her song.


She is ultimately killed by Travis Touchdown when he impales her through the torso and disembowels her. With her dying breaths, Margaret pleadingly asks if Travis had memorized her song. Upon affirmation, Margaret's last words are "That is so sublime".

Margaret is voiced by Tara Strong.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She is voiced by famous voice actress Tara Strong, who also voices Cloe Walsh.
  • A remix of her boss theme Philistine plays in the European and Japanese versions of the game in place of the regular version of Philistine in the American version of the game.
  • Though it is said that Margaret sings Philistine while killing all of her victims, the lyrics appear to be dedicated specifically to Travis.
  • She and Bad Girl are very similar as they both wear lolita style clothing, although they differ greatly in personality.
  • According to her theme song Philistine, her name means "pearl" in Greek. Her name comes from the word μαργαριτάρι /margaritari/ that means "pearl" in modern Greek.

Philistine Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Margaret's main theme is one of the few soundtracks in No More Heroes 2 that have lyrics. The singer is Nadia Gifford. These are the lyrics to her song:

Reaper, Reaper,
That's what people call me. Why?
'Cause they all die.
When I sing, I end their lives.
You act as though payback makes you a noble man. Is that a fact?
Well, you're a goddamn philistine! [2x]

Requiem eternal,
Bullets right through the sternum,
Lullaby to hell bane, Reaper's got your name.

Margaret is Greek you geek,
It means a pearl, I'm a pure girl.
Boys cannot crack this oyster shell,
So go on, whip around that sword like you're the best,
It's such a bore,
Another hero? Oh please. [2x]

Requiem aeternum, reaper has come, sinner.

Thigh high socks are my absolute territory,
Go on and drool, the Otaku can not resist.
You think the fire in your eyes makes you a tiger in disguise?
Dream on, you goddamn pussy!

Reaper, reaper,
That's what people call me. Why?
'Cause they all die.
When I sing, I end their lives.
You act as though payback makes you a noble man. Is that a fact?
Well, you're a goddamn philistine!
