ReDeads are recurring enemies from the Legend of Zelda series. They first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and have appeared in many games since.
ReDeads look like the stereotypical "zombie". Usually, they tend to stand(or in some cases, crouch) in one spot until they spot prey, such as Link, they will then let out a shriek that paralyzes their target. They will then slowly advance toward their prey grab them, and start draining their life force, if they get there before the prey can move again.
