I read somewhere that ReDead aren't re-animated corpses at all; they're beings of pure magic. Don't suppose anyone has heard anything similar? I'm pretty sure I read it in a game.... JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 10:48, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I think it was in the Melee trophy, OK, yes, it does say they are magic made creatures.
Well, Melee is non-canon. So do we add it in the main article as a side-note or at the end as trivia? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 14:28, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I think we should add it as a side note in it's description, if someone else thinks it should be added as trivia, they can add it as trivia instead, because it does explain how they were made in a way, so it could be used as description.

Due to the rigid graphical complications of the software in this game, it is difficult to determine their exact behavior, therefore the only logical decision is to say that both are possibilities.

To clarify this, I went and killed a few ReDeads in Castle Town to see what they did. There was no hand movements. They simply sat there next to the fallen ReDead, cross legged, heads bowed. They mourn.

I personally would like to believe that they eat the dead ones. I mean, undead cannibalism. Awesome. But they don't eat them. I know that for a fact. I've seen them go over to their 'family' and look at them when their dead. It's mourning, not eating.

Maybe their mourning them by eating them, thus ridding them of the body. Like cremation. No way considered canon, just a thought. :3 ~Orangenelly

In relation to the discussion above, where are these ever called ReDead Knights? The TP guide just calls them ReDeads...

It says that on the page. They really don't look like normal ReDeads.--Waker-of-the-Winds (talk) 00:48, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

This is one of those things where if nobody gives me a legitimate source for this name, I see no reason why it should be seperate from the ReDead article (what it is called in the guide). This page was made by an IP, so the name was iffy to start with.

I support that mentality Oni Dark Link 07:40, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

What I am getting from this is that it is a fan-made name that has been here so long that it has become imbedded in out heads as official, when really it is not.

True. I guess we should do it in a bit if nobody provides an official source.

I agree, but I hate to admit it. ReDead Knight is a cool name, though. I'm going to try and find out where that came from, if I can.--Waker-of-the-Winds (talk) 22:58, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia says ReDead Knight. But they probably got that somewhere as well.--Waker-of-the-Winds (talk) 23:01, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

Probably from us. Wikis are bad sources to use. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 23:03, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

The official TP website doesn't even have information on most of the enemies, and the ReDeads are one of those.--Waker-of-the-Winds (talk) 23:09, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

OoT/MM strategy

Recently, I saw a video on Youtube that demonstrated a technique in getting past (or within striking distance of) Redeads. Basically, the player had Link walk rather than run, and avoided z-targeting them or making any sudden movements. The Redeads apparently didn't notice the player, even when walked in front of or touched. When any other actions were made, the Redeads immediately reacted. I haven't been able to confirm, as I don't have access to any Zelda games right now, so could someone please do that for me? Note that the game was the original OoT, though it was not clear which version. Naxios10 (talk) 06:44, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

I tested it in MM and they act like you said, except that they don't care if you Z target them, as long as you keep moving slow and don't draw a weapon. Since you did see video evidence for OoT I went ahead and added it (the version I tested where Z targeting does nothing) to the OoT section (the MM section just says they are like they are in OoT and talks about new characteristics). OoT confirmation would be great if someone can do that (my cartridge is with a friend at the moment), but it seems more than likely that they act the same. If there are any objections to having that info in the article like that just say so.--FierceDeku 05:44, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

TP Name Source

I was wondering what our source was for the names of the TP ReDeads, as well as TP enemies in general (there's no Fairy to ID them or figurines or anything). The original Japanese name for these guys is apparently Gibdo, which makes much more sense. The TP Dodongos are another oddly applied name given that all the other Dodongos have a Triceratops-like cranial thing. Maybe this is just the same kind of official translation silliness we're used to, but I'm wondering if maybe the names are coming from some odd guide or something that would warrant an in-article note that the names are questionable.--FierceDeku 02:07, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Forest Temple?

I don't remember seeing any ReDeads in the Forest Temple, like it says in the page. It may be because I have the 3DS version, but can somebody confirm this?

I don't remember it. I'll go check Youtube. It's like a birthday party, with everyone trying to kill me! (talk) 00:54, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

Are you talking about in Master Quest? Because I am almost positive there are no ReDeads in the original version. The thing in the hole after the twisty tunnel (in the room where the Wallmaster) is a Bubble. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 14:55, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
I could easily be thinking about Master Quest. I've played through both so many times they've blurred together in places in my mind Oni Dark Link 15:03, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
