"These gloves pack a little something extra for the nearest zombie."
—Combo card description

The Tenderizers are a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. They are created by combining MMA gloves with a box of nails.

The player can make two or three sets right after leaving the Safe House, as there are multiple sets of MMA gloves in The Man's Sport and two boxes of nails in and near the maintenance room. There are also several cardboard boxes around the maintenance room that may contain nails.

They are very good for taking out crowds of zombies. The first hit of its combo can kill up to three zombies at once, and can be used to take out isolated crowds quickly as well when timed properly. Their small area of damage makes them safe to use near survivors. They are decent weapons against psychopaths, as they can deal lots of damage in a short amount of time.
