The Creeping Corpse is an enemy in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. It is a type of reanimated corpse which, unlike Zombies, retains a bit of conscience and instinct.


There is a strange, magical root that only grows in the Land of the Dead which feeds on the carcasses of dead creatures. This plant consumes all the organic material around it, and after it is satiated, evolves from the corpse it has ingested to become a living being. Once fully grown, the Creeping Corpse looks for living creatures to devour.

They crawl forward on deadly claws, moving quickly despite their lack of legs and eyes while using their heightened sense of smell to detect prey. Their tactic is simple but effective: clawing and biting everything in their way.

In the Crematory Oven and Necromancer's Abyss, they also display the ability to fuse with abandoned coffins via their root-like appendages, making them much more deadly.

It seems there's a strange connection between them and the Gravedigger, who is able to call hordes of them.
