The lift (リフト rifuto ) is an area that is featured in Resident Evil 4 for both the main game and Separate Ways.
The lift area of the village contains two gondola posts separated by a deep valleyside, with the cliffs to the west having been dug out by the locals.
A Merchant can be found here in a small hut to the right (if you enter from the Barriers) along with a small house with dump full of trash beside it. There is a door up the centre with a retinal scanner which require the False Eye. The lift appears to be leading to the Slaughterhouse. Another merchant can be found on the way to the slaughterhouse.
Upon entering the lift, a single ganado for every platform is ready to aboard the lift determine to cut the chain which cause the lift to fall. If this happen, it will result instant death. This can be avoided by shooting them which they will fall.
|The door to the Road below the cliff while it is locked||OPEN||(Locked door sound) It won't open. It must be locked from the other side.|
|The door to the Barrier while it is locked||OPEN||(Blocked door sound) It won't open. It must be barred from the other side.|
|The door to the Slaughterhouse while it is locked||OPEN||It won't open. I guess this is the only way out of this village. This light looks like it's some sort of retinal scanner.|
|The control panel||CHECK||It looks like these are controls for the lift. I better not mess with them because I need a ride back.|
|The bed||CHECK||This blood's still fresh. Was there some kind of ritual here?|
|The lift while it isn't moving||GET ON||There's no reason to board the lift if it's not going anywhere.|
|The lift controls||OPERATE||It looks like the lift needs a key to activate it.|
|The door to the slaughter house||OPEN||(locked door SFX) The door won't open. It must be locked. I need to find a key.|
|The door to the road to the castle||OPEN||(locked door SFX) It won't open. This must be where that little runt I've read about is holed up.|
|The door to the Barrier||OPEN||(Blocked door SFX) It won't open. It's probably locked from the other side.|
|The door to the Road below the cliff||OPEN||(Locked door SFX) The door won't open. It's locked. I'd better hurry up and find that vagrant while there's still time.|
