A human, animal, or object that has been possesed by a disembodied Kandarian demon. The inhabited host will display massive abnormalities physically, as well as supernatural abilities such as levitation and voice throwing. They also can infect another host by biting them. To dispose of a deadite one must blow their brains out with a shotgun, or dismember the host's body, always making sure to destroy the brain.
Ash quickly realized the deadite was playing dead and told Aurthur to get an axe.
