Resident Evil Village’s most gruesome deaths
resident Evil is no stranger to bloody and brutal deaths. With the release (and re-release) of each game in the franchise, the deaths become more creative and gruesome. The constant tilt of the engine’s stunning graphics provides more opportunities to create graphic death sequences.
Resident Evil Village, the newest game in the series, is one of the franchise’s most graphically enhanced games to date. With good graphics, characters, and a dark story, there are bound to be several death sequences that will make players’ stomachs turn. Not only are some main character deaths hard to watch, but seeing through Ethan Winters’ eyes as these creatures brutally murder him can make even the most hardened player cringe.
8 Elena burns alive
For many players, Elena’s death seemed pointless. Resident Evil Village It was rumored that there were multiple playable characters, with Elena presumably being one of them. This feature was obviously dropped in the final product, resulting in an anticlimactic character death that, really, was never meant to be.
That said, Elena’s death is still brutal in nature, no matter what players think. After running across a burning wooden platform when her father, who had begun transforming into one of the fierce Lycans, calls out to her, it becomes clear that her decision to run alongside her will be her last. she will ever take. The frail platform begins to crumble, and she painstakingly tells Ethan to leave before the platform gives way, and Elena falls into the roaring flames.
seven Mother Miranda
The final death sequence of Mother Miranda, while beautifully animated, isn’t the most gruesome death as far as gore goes. After Ethan delivers his final blow, Mother Miranda writhes, spitting blood before she calcifies and breathes her last.
While her death itself isn’t a bloody mess of guts and blood, Mother Miranda puts up a bloody and tough fight for players, both experienced and new. Her delirious cries about her daughter, Eva, whom she sought to bring back to life by infecting Ethan’s granddaughter, Rose, with the megafungus haunt to the very end.
6 Donna Benevento
The Beneviento house is already the stuff of nightmares, with a giant deformed fetus and creepy murder dolls stalking Ethan around every dark corner. Donna Beneviento’s death is both sad and somber, with her first and only words spoken by herself (rather than her doll, Angie), “don’t go, I can’t leave you”, implying that she really wanted to spare Ethan from Mother Miranda and the other Lords.
After finding Angie in his life or death game of Hide n’ Seek, Ethan repeatedly stabs her with scissors until the illusion finally wears off, and it is revealed that he had stabbed Donna. herself all the time, eventually killing her.
5 Karl Heisenberg
Heisenberg had one of the coolest final transformations of the Four Lords. His power lies in magnetism, so for his final transformation he transformed into an amalgamation of heavily armored mechanical parts equipped with saws and other deadly machinery. The boss fight was unique and challenging with a brutal death sequence.
After delivering the final blow, Heisenberg (still in his gigantic metal form) recoils, ruminating on his plans to ultimately betray and kill Mother Miranda. Then, its mass of mechanical parts explode into a mess of metal and fire, ultimately killing the sadistic, power-hungry Fourth Lord.
4 Ethan Winters’ Sacrifice
Ethan’s survival against all odds in Resident Evil 7 had fans rooting for him all along Resident Evil Village. After defeating Mother Miranda, it becomes apparent that the beloved protagonist won’t live to see his precious daughter grow up.
In an act of sacrifice, Ethan hands Rose over to Chris Redfield. He snatches the detonator from Chris and says goodbye to Rose one last time before heading back to where he killed Mother Miranda, setting off the bomb that would destroy the megafungus and the village once and for all. A secret ending sequence shows a teenage girl Rose visiting Ethan’s grave, confirming that the protagonist is truly dead.
3 Eaten by the mutant baby
The mutant fetus that roams the halls of the Beneviento house is already mortifying. His puffy black eyes, big mouth, and creepy human baby sounds are enough to send gamers shivers as they carefully round every dark corner.
If the player is grabbed by the deformed fetus, they are in for an ugly and gruesome death streak. The baby laughs happily as he pulls Ethan into his big, toothless, drooling mouth through his legs, slowly swallowing him alive. As the death sequence plays, players can hear the baby’s childish, “delicious” commentary.
Of the four Lords, Moreau felt like the one players could almost sympathize with. His overwhelming insecurity in both his appearance and his service to Mother Miranda almost makes the players feel guilty for taking the piece of Rose he guards. Don’t feel too guilty; he will make the players pay to take back the vial which would cause him to lose the respect of Mother Miranda.
His final mutated form is a large grotesque beast with clustered eyes on his back. The appearance of his final form is enough to make players gag, but his death streak is even more gruesome. After delivering the final blow, Moreau starts swelling with the acid he attacked with before. He screams in pain, implores Mother Miranda until, finally, his suffering ends in an explosion of acid and guts.
1 Crushed by Urias’ Hammer
Urias is one of the first boss fights the player has to endure. While not the toughest boss fight in the game, considering it’s one of the first, Urias is brutal and ruthless in his aim to kill Ethan. Urias wields a giant hammer, unlike any of the other Lycans, as they usually wield nothing at all.
If the player dies in Urias, he repeatedly beats Ethan to death with his big heavy hammer. Knocking once, twice and again, repeatedly crushing his torso in a pool of broken bones and blood. The death sequence is one of the first to be encountered, and seeing it through Ethan’s eyes as he is bludgeoned to death by this massive werewolf is heartbreaking.
Resident Evil Village is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
