The Kingpin[1][2] is an alien enemy cut from Half-Life. While it lacked convincing AI and gameplay goals, it was scripted nevertheless. It can be found in the game files.

[edit] Overview

Twice the height of an average person, it was to have a massive brain filling its entire body, with four eyestalks spaced evenly around it. An early version was to walk on three chitinous legs with a clicking sound; a later version, called Sactildiae Nefariousium,[3] traded the rear leg for a thick, worm-like "tail".[1] Its psionic attacks and psionic defenses would have made it immune to missile weapons.

It was to be found at least on Xen, in some caves.[4] Additionally, as stated by Marc Laidlaw, the Kingpin appeared in several concept art pieces of the Topside Motorpool area. It was to break free from a squad of soldiers tormenting it, and destroy them with the player's help.[5]

[edit] In modding

Its second version appears in the Half-Life mods Redemption, USS Darkstar, and as a functioning enemy in Sweet Half-Life.
