The Earthquake Maker is a weapon in the video game No More Heroes. It is a gigantic machine with a silo-like appearance. It was previously a war weapon owned by the LB. Army and contains the exaggerated brain of its inventor, Dr. Shake. As the Earthquake Maker prepares to launch a devastating, magnitude 20[1] seismic blast dubbed by its user, the "Disaster Blaster," the automated voice of Dr. Shake calculates aloud the cycle ratio of the attack, which can apparently reach as high as 140%.


The Earthquake Maker contains a number of components for purposes known to include detecting any disturbances in heating as it charges its "Disaster Blaster" and locating the target for the blast. A full listing of these components include the ignition, main engine, sub-engine, Cluster Generation, target coordinate calculation, thermal protection, Anti-Shock Balancer, heat detection system, main panel, CELL Pistons, Vanishing Sparks, Trinity Pistons and Scouting Scope.

Trading cardEdit

There is one trading card featuring the Earthquake Maker in the Design Materials set, Trading Card No. 72, although another card in the set features the Earthquake Maker in the background, behind Letz Shake as well.


  • A trading card which features concept art of the Earthquake Maker reveals that early in the development of No More Heroes, it was originally called the Earthquake Generator.
  • Letz Shake orders the Earthquake Maker to activate "CELL Pistons" and "Trinity Pistons," a reference to the PlayStation 3's cell microprocessor and the Xbox 360's Trinity engine. Interestingly, the game, which was originally exclusive to Wii, was ported to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010.
  • The visor Letz Shake dons during the Disaster Blaster's initiation phase resembles that of Nintendo's Virtual Boy.
