|Damage:||Instant kill by Impalement.|
|Encountered in:||Ronald Street, Subways.|
The Human Flower is an enemy encountered in Cry of Fear (SP Campaign and Doctor Mode). It's a writhing mass of flesh with multiple tendrils and faces emerging from it, alongside one giant arm it uses to strike at the player. This monster is not exactly an enemy, but an obstruction placed in the path of the player. It is invulnerable to regular means of damage and thus the player must find a way to either bypass it, or find an alternative means of killing it.
About the Monster
Approaching towards this enemy means an instant kill, so if there are enemies at the same area where this monster is, make sure that, while evading the other enemies, don't get too close to it as it will cause it to impale Simon on its chest and kill him instantly, dragging his corpse into its pit; likely to be absorbed into its mass. This same creature is also seen in Doctor Mode and must be avoided in the same fashion.
This enemy is encountered two times in the single player campaign, the first having emerged from a street in the city to block the players path. The player must take an alternate route around the creature.
The second Human Flower is met in the subway at Saxon Avenue, having emerged from the ceiling of the tunnel the player must progress down. In order to continue on, Simon must activate the nearby train which will then run into the abomination and kill it, allowing Simon to safely pass by.
Developer commentary states that the creature was created to trick the player into thinking that a biological outbreak of some kind was the cause of the monsters, the Human Flower meant to be shown expanding across the city and 'assimilating' Slowers--some versions of the slower even having tendrils growing throughout their body. The reason it is called the Human Flower may be because of its tendrils, which seem to resemble the petals of a flower.
