~ Official Battle Bears Gold description
The Horseless Headsman features Tillman dressed up as the Headless Horseman, who has been a motif of European folklore since the Middle Ages. The legend goes that a man was beheaded, but somehow survived and is riding around forests in search of his head, having replaced it "temporarily" with a pumpkin in some derivations.
It features Tillman in a black and team-coloured suit with gold ribbons and decorations. All metallic parts are painted gold, including the wheel details. His gloves are black and grey with three red marks on them each.
The famous pumpkin head features a wide smiling and laughing grin. The ears have both been replaced by stems. The back of the pumpkins have two scars.
The backpack is black with a massive golden pattern. On the middle of the pack, there is a big gemstone-like object.
- The name "Horseless Headsman" is a pun on the original fictional character Headless Horseman.
- This skin was discontinued on October 31st, 2012, but came back as part of a bundle deal costing one Gas that also included all other Halloween Skins.
- This skin quickly grew popular, making it the Halloween icon of Battle Bears Gold.
- The origin of the skin was from a fan-made concept by a forumer of BattleBears.com, and the idea quickly became popular. The in-game skin has different features from this concept.
