|~ The Baby upon killing Ethan Winters.|
The Baby is a minor antagonist in the 2021 horror game Resident Evil Village. They are a giant, grotesque humanoid monster that hunt the main protagonist and tries to eat them. They are possibly under the implicate authority of or a deadly illusion created by Donna Beneviento, hunting Ethan Winters throughout Donna's home.
As their name implies, the Baby shares many similar characteristics to that of a human infant. On top of sharing some similar physical qualities, this character also speaks in a similar manner. Throughout their pursuit with Ethan, they will often say "Mama" and "Dada". Like most infants at a young age, the Baby will stick things that they shouldn't into its mouth, such as Ethan when he gets too close. They will utter "Yummy" while doing so.
While in Donna's residence, he fell victim to Donna's fungus-infected plants and begins to experience hallucinations. This most likely implies that the Baby is a hallucination. If the Baby is in fact a hallucination, then they may represent Ethan's inner fears about his daughter.
While large and obviously superior to Ethan, the Baby's mutated form has made it hard for them to navigate their surroundings. They have a very hard time moving around the residence, bowing their head up and down each movement and dragging their entire body only with the support of their hands. They don't seem to have very good senses other than sight, not being able to find Ethan hiding under things.
The Baby looks less like a traditional human baby, and more akin to a malformed fetus. They have two giant beady eyes, a balding head, and a gigantic slobbering mouth that stretches down it's neck. They skin is a mixture of tan and red, as though they had been born recently. Their main body is flat and facing the floor. They walk on all fours, their hands doing most of the work as their feet are bend backward.
While Ethan is trying to retrieve the Break-Box Key, the Baby will appear at the end of a hallway that lead to the Doll workshop. They will then begin their chase with Ethan, who will have to escape into the kitchen area. Later, after Ethan obtains a fuse, the Baby will reappear and chase Ethan from the kitchen and the bedroom, only to escape it once reaching the Medicine room. The baby won't be seen again until Ethan reaches the elevator. Ethan will have to successfully closes it's gates before the Baby reaches him. Once he does, the Baby will scream at him as he slowly rises into the ceiling.
Based on the nature of the creature, it was most likely killed when either Benevito was killed by Ethan or destroyed when Ethan destroyed the Megamycete.
- The Baby was originally supposed to be fought regularly, but this was cut.
- Upon the release of Resident Evil Village, the Baby's level quickly became infamous among players for being by far the scariest section in the game.
