The ReDead is an recurring enemy type in the Legend of Zelda series that debuted in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 1998. They returned in LoZ Majora’s Mask (2000) that used many assets from the previous game . The ReDeads returned also in the following big sequel, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (2002) with a big visual re-design. They currently latest appearance was also their handheld Zelda debut as enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (2015) on the Nintendo 3DS.

Like the name implies already, the Redeads are undead enemies. They can be pretty scary but are weak to light and in general not very tough enemies.
