The Valley (渓谷 Keikoku?)[1] is an area of the Village that is featured in Resident Evil 4. This area introduced the merchant who sell weapons and other goods.


This valley is filled with various buildings which are guarded by the villagers from any strangers. Explosive drums and sandbags are also placed in some areas.


Leon S. Kennedy and Luis Sera wake up chained together in a shack. A Villager enters, attempting to kill them with a hatchet, but Leon and Luis are freed when the axe cuts through their chains. Leon then kicks the villager against the wall, breaking the man's neck. Luis takes the opportunity to escape, and Leon is left alone. Exiting the shack, Leon meets the Merchant for the first time. The Valley Camp itself is filled with Villagers, and the door out of the valley is locked, requiring Leon to assemble the two pieces of the Hexagonal Emblem to leave.

The Emblem (Right half) is found on the roof of the building in the middle of the area. It is accessed via a ladder on the inside, or a ladder on the outside of the building.

The Emblem (Left half) is located at the top of the hill to the right of the initial building. This is also where the first few waves of enemies spawn, and given that some of them will be holding dynamite it is suggested that they are killed off before getting this emblem.
