Attack Pattern: ReDeads are undead zombies that use their gaze and a scream to immobilize Link. They move very slowly, but if one grabs Link the ReDead climbs on his back and drains some hearts before letting go.

Quick Facts: The ReDeads in this game appear in many of the later dungeons. Their distinct murmering sounds make it easy to locate them, and they can also be stunned with the Sun's Song.

Quick Facts: Found in the Earth Temple, Ganon's Castle and the Savage Labyrinth. These ReDeads look very different from the ones in the N64 Games, but they attack in a similar manner.
ReDeads are a type of zombie-like creature living in crypts or dark and haunted places.
The ReDeads feed by sucking life energy from their poor victims. To do that, they freeze their targets with horror by a direct look in the eyes. Then they approach slowly, and if the ReDead comes close enough it jumps on the back of its prey and bites the victim, draining their energy. You can throw off the ReDead if you struggle enough.
The ReDeads are created by evil magic, so, Light arrows or other weapons similar are effective against the ghoul. Summoning light in the area (like the reflect of a Mirror Shield or playing the Sun's Song) can freeze them temporily.
In Majora's Mask, wearing a certain type of mask makes ReDeads dance and makes them completely unable to attack.
Ocarina of Time
ReDead Its gaze will paralyze you. If it bites you, tap any button to escape!
ReDead... If it catches you in its paralyzing glare, you won't be able to move. Shake it off if you get caught!
The ReDeads in Ikana were once members of the castle's dancing troupe...
It seems the ReDeads that appear in Ikana Castle start dancing when the Captain's Hat, Gibdo Mask or Garo's Mask are worn. But that does not change things much...

Some French and German use different names for ReDead in TWW than in the other two games. The Spanish changed the second 'D' into a lower case letter for TWW.
