A zombie-like enemy that appears in some "Legend of Zelda" series video games. They appear in Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess (however, they are called "ReDead Knights" in TP)
If the player comes within range, the ReDead will let out a shriek that will paralyze said player. It will then move in closer and jump onto their victims back & proceed to "bite" into the victim & drain their life energy.
In Twilight Princess, they no longer use their biting attack & use swords to attack instead.
This enemy is very notorious for being one of the most terrifying enemies in the Legend of Zelda games, as well as being one of the most dangerous.
Even to this day, ReDeads scare the shit out of me.
