Las Plagas

Main article: Las Plagas

Las Plagas (Spanish for "The Plagues") are the new agent of transformation in Resident Evil 4.[1] Las Plagas are parasitic creatures that grow in the body of other organisms and control the behavior of the host. Las Plagas (Spanish : The Plagues) are a fictional breed of parasitic organisms from the Resident Evil game series. ...


The Plagas were sealed deep under the castle by the first castellan. When the Plagas were unearthed, they seemed to have been fossilized. However, they had actually been in a dormant state, existing in a spore-like form. The first Ganados were extremely belligerent and had inhaled the parasite while mining.


Las Plagas are extremely sensitive to light, only coming out of the host's body when it has sustained a lot of damage, or if its head is destroyed. Because of their sensitivity to light, Las Plagas can only reveal themselves at nightfall. The head of the host may either be destroyed completely and replaced by the parasite, or the parasite may emerge from the mouth or neck of the Ganado; however, due to their photosensitivity, Las Plagas can be destroyed with the use of a bright light source such as a flash grenade. Photosensitivity is the amount to which an object reacts upon receiving photons of light. ...


Several varieties of plaga may be seen during the course of the game. Some appear as the result of damage to certain parts of the host's body, such as the head, and may be a protrusion out of its host's body, or in whole as a detached entity. It is unclear if these are actually different varieties or mutations of plaga or if they represent various levels of maturity. The following is a list of non-unique Plagas or their parts as seen in the game. Resident Evil 4, known in Japan as Biohazard 4 ), is a third-person shooter, published and developed by Capcom. ...

  • Blade plagas have a number of small tentacle-like appendages that swing erratically and are harmless, but one larger tentacle has a sharp bone at the end which is used to inflict damage by slashing at their enemy blindly.
  • Centipede plagas attack by swallowing the head of their enemy whole.
  • Spider plagas are unique in that they are capable of completely detaching from their host. They will eventually perish after detaching. While still attached they can spit acid at their enemy. They can also strike them with their legs, either while attached or separate.
  • Tentacle-like protrusions, found in Colmillos. Unlike previous forms, they are not spawned as a result of damage, but rather are simply produced when the Colmillos has engaged in combat. They attack by whipping their enemy.
  • Leech-like plagas, most of which can only be seen using an infrared scope, are found in Regenerators and Iron Maidens. They sustain the regenerative powers of both monsters.

Ganados

Los Ganados, from the Spanish term for 'herd' or the cattle, are the primary enemies in the game.[2] Ganados are humans who have become infested by the mind-controlling Plaga parasites. (Note that Los and Las are Spanish for The (plural), and thus the word "the" is not required before a Las or Los.)


Three main types of Ganados are found in the game (by order of appearance): Villagers, Zealots and Militia.


Villagers

The villagers were once peaceful residents of a rural community until they were exposed to the parasites. From that point, they became ruthless zombie-like savages under Osmund Saddler's control. They continue to carry out agricultural duties, although their living conditions have deteriorated somewhat. When Leon first arrives in the village, he is immediately attacked by one of the villagers after questioning him about Ashley's whereabouts. Sign in a rural area in Dalarna, Sweden Qichun, a rural town in Hubei province, China Rural areas (also referred to as the country, countryside) are settled places outside towns and cities. ... Osmund Saddler is a fictional character and the main antagonist in the video game, Resident Evil 4. ...

The Ganados' arsenal is comprised mostly of farming tools, including: pitchforks, hatchets, sickles, knives, torches, chainsaws, and dynamite (In a cutscene in Separate Ways, one villager uses an air powered tranquilizer gun, however no such weapons are ever seen during gameplay). Upon completion of the game, a series of sketches in the background of the credits serve as flashbacks to the earlier days of the village. What was once a community distanced from the modern world, populated with farmers and their children, became corrupt upon the arrival of Osmund Saddler, and the workers were infected with spores during the Plaga excavation, causing families to become savage and turn against one another. Ada is seen reading a book about this in the Separate Ways mission in the beginning of the second mission. According to the booklet included with the Biohazard 4: Incubate DVD, the children of the villagers died after being injected with the Plaga parasites, explaining why there are no children visible during gameplay.


Though the Plaga parasites control the hosts' bodies, they induce no obvious alteration of the host body aside from the glowing red eyes at night and slight discoloration of the skin.


Zealots

The zealots are members of the Illuminados cult, and appear in Ramon Salazar's castle. They are dressed in robes bearing the cult's insignia. Image File history File linksMetadata Zealots. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Zealots. ... // Main article: Leon S. Kennedy Ashley Ashley Graham (voiced by Carolyn Lawrence) is the 20-year-old daughter of the newly-elected President, taken captive by Los Illuminados during her trip home from Massachusetts and held in a European village. ...


The zealots are better equipped than the villagers, using a variety of medieval armaments. They wield weapons such as scythes, flails, crossbows and wooden shields. Their skin is much paler than that of the villagers, and all of them appear to be bald. Some have crimson lesions, tattoos or scarification from their rituals on their faces. A traditional wooden scythe A scythe (IPA: , most likely from Old English siðe, sigði) is an agricultural hand tool for mowing and reaping grass or crops. ... Flail The flail is a medieval weapon made of one (or more) weights attached to a handle with a hinge or chain. ... This article is about the weapon. ... A lesion is a non-specific term referring to abnormal tissue in the body. ... -1... Scarification is a term that is used to describe the act of scarifying. ...


Militia

These Plaga-infected soldiers are members of Saddler's mercenary organization, assigned to protect his island complex. They are generally better equipped than other Ganados and can run faster. They can be seen carrying stun rods, flails, wooden shields, RPGs, dynamite and crossbows. With the exception of J.J., no Ganado carries a firearm. Flail The flail is a medieval weapon made of one (or more) weights attached to a handle with a hinge or chain. ... A rocket propelled grenade (RPG) is a man-portable, shoulder-launched weapon capable of firing an explosive device longer distances than an otherwise unassisted soldier could throw. ... This article is about a high explosive. ... This article is about the weapon. ...


Notable Ganados

  • Dr. Salvador (also referred to as Chainsaw Man in the Japanese version), is a villager who wears overalls and a potato sack mask who chases after intruders with his chainsaw. He is far more durable than a regular Ganado, and is capable of decapitating his prey with a single strike. A larger variation of Dr. Salvador, dubbed Super Salvador in the official guide, also appears in "The Mercenaries" minigame as a sub-boss in the "Waterworld" stage. Super Salvador uses a large double-bladed chainsaw that appears to be constantly on fire and emitting smoke, making it a seemingly very unsafe weapon even to wield.
  • J.J. is a giant Ganado who wields a Minigun. He wears a red beret and an eye patch over his right eye. J.J. also appears in the Mercenaries minigame, as a mini-boss.
  • The Bella Sisters (literally meaning The Beautiful Sisters) are a pair of chainsaw-wielding Ganados. They wear bandages covering their faces, but are otherwise clothed in the same way as other female Ganados. They appear as a mini-boss enemy in The Mercenaries minigame, and Separate Ways of the PlayStation 2, PC, and Wii port of the game.

Colmillos

Colmillos (from Spanish, meaning fangs) are wolves that have been implanted with Plaga parasites. They act like guard dogs for the Ganados. The player will meet both regular Colmillos, and Colmillos in which the plagas are more obviously developed and tearing out of the back of the Colmillos, displaying flailing tentacles which attack with multiple strikes in succession.


Novistator

The Novistadors are large insectoid creature that were created from experiments with human specimens by Los Illuminados. Its name is a portmanteau of the Spanish words No and Vista ("No" and "View"/"Sight") and the noun suffix of dor. As such, the name Novistador can be translated as the "Unseen Creature", but literally means Nosighter. The name refers to the creature's ability to render itself invisible to the naked eye by changing the color of its exoskeleton. There are three types of Novistadores in the game. The first type encountered has the ability to turn invisible, while the second type may also turn invisible but differs in that it is completely white and has black eyes. The third type, encountered later in the game, does not turn invisible, but has the ability to fly. Novistadores often fight in packs and may have wings. They attack with their claws and spit acid at their enemies. A portmanteau (IPA: ) is a word or morpheme that fuses two or more words or word parts to give a combined or loaded meaning. ... In linguistics, a noun or noun substantive is a lexical category which is defined in terms of how its members combine with other grammatical kinds of expressions. ...


It should be noted that Novistadores are the only creatures in the game that do not appear to have a Plagas parasite infesting them. Luis Sera's notes state that Novistadors are among those mutants created by Los Illuminados through experimentation with Las Plagas on human beings. The sixth installment of the Resident Evil series, Capcoms survival horror game Resident Evil 4 is centered around Leon Kennedys mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the United States Presidents daughter, from a sinister cult bent on world domination. ... Los Illuminados is a religious cult responsible fo the Las Plagas virus. ...


Garrador

Garrador

The Garradors are Plaga-infested warriors who wear equipment resembling that worn by gladiators. The Garradors are equipped with large claws on each hand, which can be extended and retracted at will. The Garrador will indiscriminately attack anyone and anything in its path and are usually kept under restraint. Garradors are completely blind, and are only able to use their sense of sight for a short time if the player throws a flash grenade. They entirely rely on their sense of hearing to track down intruders and are easily distracted by loud noises. Garradors will become enraged when very loud noises are made, and are prone to charging in the direction of the noise and striking at its source. Image File history File links Download high resolution version (1024x1024, 82 KB)Garrador, an enemy creature from Resident Evil 4. ... Image File history File links Download high resolution version (1024x1024, 82 KB)Garrador, an enemy creature from Resident Evil 4. ... For other uses, see Gladiator (disambiguation). ...


The word Garrador can be literally translated into English as "Clawer" as no such word as Garrador exists in Spanish, though it can be a variation of desgarrador (Spanish for heartrending or, more accurately, ripper). The Garradors also appear in the Mercenaries minigame in the castle level.


Armadura

Armadura (literally meaning "armor" in Spanish) is a Plaga parasite that has taken possession of a suit of plate armor from Salazar's castle, which provides a sturdy defense. They attack with medieval weapons, such as broadswords and halberds. Their helmets are loosely attached, and once removed will expose the Plaga, which is extremely vulnerable to bright light. This article needs cleanup. ... The Middle Ages formed the middle period in a traditional schematic division of European history into three ages: the classical civilization of Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and modern times. ... The term broadsword is used to refer to different types of swords, across many cultures and time periods. ... This article or section cites very few or no references or sources. ...


Additionally, some Armaduras may attempt to ambush their victims by staying still until their target approaches, at which point they attempt to hit the target. The sudden movement causes the Armadura to disintegrate.


Regenerator

A Regenerator is a mutated humanoid created from experiments with Las Plagas and human specimens: according to the notes of Luis Sera, they are the most "clearly distinguishable" creatures born from Saddler's experiments. They can regenerate lost body parts in a matter of seconds, are extremely resistant to damage, but are unable to live without the leech-shaped Plagas which inhabit them, which are only visible using thermal imaging equipment. When a Regenerator has lost all inhabiting Plagas its tissues will begin to expand rapidly and will explode, leaving only its lower half. The Regenerators can stretch their limbs to reach opponents, pull them in, and bite them with their sharp teeth. They can slither on the ground if one of their legs has been shot off. They can also leap from a prone position. Also, if it takes a certain amount of damage, it will run, almost stumbling, towards Leon. The Regenerator can range from having two to five parasites depending on difficulty level and location encountered. For other uses, see Leech (disambiguation). ... Thermography can refer to a printing process and a imaging process. ...


Iron Maiden

An Iron Maiden is a variation of the Regenerator with the added ability to generate sharp spikes from its skin. An Iron Maiden is able to stretch its arms, latch onto a victim, and cause devastating damage by embracing and impaling him or her on its spikes. Named after a medieval execution device, an Iron Maiden looks as if it is in constant pain. The Iron Maiden always has five parasites, as opposed to a Regenerator, and if slithering on the floor, it constantly protrudes its spikes.


Del Lago

Del Lago (meaning "from the lake") is a creature that lives in a lake near the village, apparently a massive Plagas-infested newt. It attacks Leon's boat causing the anchor to be embedded in its skin, dragging the boat along. Del Lago attempts to kill Leon by ramming into the boat, knocking Leon into the water, and eating him if he swims too slow. Leon must throw harpoons at Del Lago, until it finally dies and nearly pulls Leon underwater after the anchor's rope wraps around his leg.


El Gigante

El Gigante (meaning The Giant) are huge humanoid creatures created by Los Illuminados from experiments with Las Plagas and human specimens. First encountered early in the game, these creatures are massive in size and deadly in combat. They are extremely strong and can even use trees as weapons. They contain massive Plaga parasites and when the parasites come out of their backs you can climb and start hacking away. Unlike the other kinds, they don't seem to have any form of self-defense.


Verdugo

The Verdugo (Executioner) are the two bodyguards of Ramon Salazar. Underneath the robes are monstrous humanoid creatures, with insectoid exoskeletons and long, muscular tails which sport sharp sickle-like blades, used for lethal surprise attacks. The Verdugo's exoskeleton is almost completely bullet-proof, but is weakened by exposure to liquid nitrogen. The Verdugo possesses keen agility and exceptional combat capabilities. Many players prefer to use the game's only free Rocket Launcher on the frozen Verdugo because of his near-invincibility to normal attacks. An exoskeleton is an external anatomical feature that supports and protects an animals body, in contrast to the internal endoskeleton of, for example, a human. ... Sickle Sickle A sickle is a curved, hand-held agricultural tool typically used for harvesting grain crop or cutting grass for hay. ... A tank of liquid nitrogen, used to supply a cryogenic freezer (for storing laboratory samples at a temperature of about -150 Celsius). ...


Another strategy while fighting the Verdugo is to aim for the groin area, which is the only unarmored spot on the creature. This could be used to buy time or, after enough blows, can kill it.


The second Verdugo merges with Salazar, along with a mutated plant. This Verdugo forms the large snake-like head of the merged entity, while Salazar is contained within a bud-like structure. As the snake-like part receives damage, the bud-like structure will periodically open, allowing the player to damage Salazar. Like Salazar, the second Verdugo decays to sludge when defeated by Leon.


U3

The U3 (referred to as 'It' by Saddler) is a creature that was created by splicing genes from reptiles, insects and a human into one organism. It is incredibly strong, fast and agile, and its numerous limbs possess various lethal claws and tentacles. A huge pincer-equipped plaga parasite, capable of bifurcating a human being with a single bite, lives inside it and will emerge if the U3 is injured sufficiently or a certain period of time has elapsed, increasing its lethality in combat. U3 attacks Leon on a series of suspended metal cages, forcing Leon to sequentially drop each cage as he tries to escape the monster. As Leon drops U3 with the last cage and escapes to more sturdy ground, his momentary sigh of relief is cut short as U3 runs up the side of the cliff to engage him. For other uses, see Gene (disambiguation). ... Reptilia redirects here. ... Orders Subclass Apterygota Archaeognatha (bristletails) Thysanura (silverfish) Subclass Pterygota Infraclass Paleoptera (Probably paraphyletic) Ephemeroptera (mayflies) Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) Infraclass Neoptera Superorder Exopterygota Grylloblattodea (ice-crawlers) Mantophasmatodea (gladiators) Plecoptera (stoneflies) Embioptera (webspinners) Zoraptera (angel insects) Dermaptera (earwigs) Orthoptera (grasshoppers, etc) Phasmatodea (stick insects) Blattodea (cockroaches) Isoptera (termites) Mantodea (mantids) Psocoptera... This article is about modern humans. ... Cat claw A claw is a curved pointed appendage, found at the end of a toe or finger or, in arthropods, of the tarsus. ...


During this stage, the U3 attempts to burrow underground and surprise attack Leon. This is best avoidable by staying on the move or being ready to dodge.


Even after killing the main body, the large pincer-plaga still remains alive and must be killed separately, implying the idea that it has its own life force separate from its host.
