Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden are enemies from the Resident Evil series. It is a variation of the Regenerator with the added ability to generate sharp spikes from its skin. They are featured in the game Resident Evil 4.


Iron Maidens are able to stretch their arms, latch onto their targets and cause devastating damage by embracing and impaling them on their spikes. They have a slightly slower gait than the Regenerators; on the other hand, they can crawl much faster than normal Regenerators. They also have no visible eyes, while the Regenerators each have a pair of glowing red eyes.

Iron Maidens also have considerably higher stamina than the Regenerators, as they contain more parasites, and it is the hardest regular enemy the player can encounter in the game.
