ReDeads are zombie-like enemies from The Legend of Zelda franchise.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee's Adventure mode, the ReDeads can be found in the Underground Maze. They are designed after their appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They attacking by charging at characters, leaping onto them, and slowly sucking out their health. They can be shaken off by mashing the controller buttons, after which they continue to walk around. If attacked for long enough, ReDeads eventually lie down on the ground. If left in this state, they eventually rise again, meaning that only further attacks are able to completely eliminate them. ReDeads that are killed have a chance of dropping a random trophy. On rare occasions, a ReDead can appear from Party Balls, Crates, and other kinds of containers in Versus Mode. The two types of ReDeads have different colors; the ones in Adventure Mode are a light brown, while the ones that can spawn from containers are a dark brown. Aside from the color, there is no difference between the two of them.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there is a sticker of ReDead, which depicts its The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time artwork.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, ReDeads appear as enemies in Smash Run. They maintain their The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D appearance. ReDeads attack by letting out a scream that can stun the player or push them back if they are in the air, then by swiping at them.

Seven years after Ganondorf took control of Hyrule, ReDeads roamed the ruins of Castle Town, moaning. At first, Link was shocked at the state of the town, and the apparent lack of survivors. He later learned that the townsfolk had evacuated to safety, and that the ReDeads were just magic animated into hideous humanoid shapes.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U trophy[edit]

Although the same trophy appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the former game lists the category as Enemy because ReDeads are enemies in Smash Run.

They attack Link when he gets too close, making spine-chilling noises that are hard to describe with words alone. Best not to try - just get rid of them!

Trivia[edit]

  • The trophy information in Super Smash Bros. Melee claims that Link learns in Ocarina of Time that the ReDeads aren't undead townspeople, but evil magic in a humanoid shape. However, this is actually not touched upon in the game itself, and seems to be inferred by the fact that many of the townspeople in the past can be found in Kakariko Village later in the game, with even more appearing during a victory celebration during the game's closing scenes. Despite this, an in-game poem refers to them as "living dead" and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has ReDeads stated to truly be undead. The much later The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes contains ReDeads that more resemble animate clay, akin to their description in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
