The infected plants make their appearance in Resident Evil 2. The creatures main form of attack is to spray acid, but they can also use their vines to whip the player. It should be noted that the creature can whip the player even in death. The spray emitted from the plants is also known to cause Poison status.
The creatures are extremely slow and can be avoided by the player at ease. However, they are very weak against fire, so the flamethrower or grenade launcher equipped with flame round can make quick work of them.
