The Farfarello (lit. Slanderer, elf, goblin, or evil spirit) is an independently-improved species of the Hunter B.O.W. They are featured in Resident Evil: Revelations.

HistoryEdit

Farfarello were developed by the terrorist group Il Veltro by administering the t-Abyss virus to regular Hunters.

BiologyEdit

As a result of being administered the t-Abyss virus, the Farfarello came to have aquatic characteristics, such as the ability to mimic their surroundings and become transparent similar to a group of aquatic organisms. However, because they were exposed to multiple viruses (t-Virus and t-Abyss), it is believed that they became so aggressive that they were even more difficult to control than a regular Hunter.

GameplayEdit

They are stronger than regular Hunters and slightly larger. They can be rendered visible by scanning them with the Genesis or inflicting heavy damage. Their locations can also be compromised by a weapon's laser sight as the laser's point will become rounded when one has been moved over. Their footsteps kick up snow, which can also denote their position.

It can decapitate and instantly kill you in one hit, even if it is invisible.

Raid ModeEdit

While invisible, their health bars will also be hidden.

In the 3DS version of the game, their associated wanted mission is called "Defeat Farfarello (Defear 5)" which has the description "You won't be able to find these creatures with your eye. But if you have the skill, you should be able to take down 5 of them.". The missions is worth 25000 BP.

In the port versions of the game, Farfarello count as "Beast" type enemies effected by the "Hunting Gear" custom parts.

StrategyEdit

In Campaign Mode, players can use the Genesis scanner to reveal a Farfarello's location and they will remain visible for a short amount of time, giving players the opportunity to shoot them.

Another strategy for locating a Fafarello, in both Campaign and Raid Mode, players can watch for shifts in the snow to track the creature's movement. Also, they can use their weapons' laser sight to pin-point their location, shooting them once the laser lands on a solid form.

Gunfire from a machine gun works best at keeping Farfarellos, as well as Hunters, at bay.

Injury from pulse grenade detonations can temporarily render them partially visible.[excerpt 1]

Resident Evil.netEdit

  • Description on Creature info page:

"Farfarello are created by improving Hunters with the administration of the t-Abyss virus, which enables them to turn invisible and blend into the surrounding environment, an ability usually found only in a number of aquatic organisms. The presence of multiple viruses has also increased their aggression however, and they are less controllable as a result."

Further notesEdit

  • The Farfarello is named after one of the 13 devils named the Malebranche (Evil Claws) from the Divine Comedy written by Dante Alighieri.
  • Quint referred to one of them as a "poltergeist" while witnessing it mauling a Veltro agent to death while camouflaged.
  • When turned visible, its color is slightly purple and grey, in contrast to the original Hunter's color which is greenish.
  • Because the t-Abyss virus is aquatic, Farfarello's invisibility ability is probably from the marine animal group Cephalopods such as octopuses or squids, which are able to modify their skin pigmentations and colors to disappear into the background.

    攻撃の前や威嚇動作などのタイミングで、短時間だが姿を現す。ダメージやパルスグレネードなどをきっかけに、しばらく透明化しなくなる (この間はハンターと同じ動パターンになる)。
