Resident Evil Village was already crazy, but now there are a lot of funny or scary mods for it. The modding society was already hard at work before the much-anticipated next game in the Resident Evil universe came out. The exclusive-paced demo for Village gave eager fans a chance to taste Resident Evil before it came out.
It gave players a certain amount of time to explore either the Village hub area or Castle Dimitrescu, which was heavily advertised but didn’t seem to be used much. Not lengthy after the demo came out, and you could already download mods that would eliminate the timed structure. Since the game came out, Resident Evil Village fans have had a lot of funny and scary mods to choose from. Buckle up. Ethan’s descent into Hell only got much weirder!
Baby Chris Redfield
In the months before Village came out, it was known that Chris Redfield would be back for the second movie. Fans already had Lady Dimitrescu to obsess over, and now they could see one of the show’s most popular characters back in action if it wasn’t past his bedtime.
Resident Evil Village players can now see a baby’s head on Chris Redfield’s huge body, thanks to modder JTegh. They can also see an adult, Chris Redfield’s head on baby Rose’s body. You’re right. Players now have the chance to hold and care for baby Chris.
I love you, and you love me, right? – Barney Enemy Skin Mod
Imagine that something you loved as a child returned to haunt you in ways you couldn’t even imagine. A picture that Barney the Dinosaur was trying to tear your neck open and drink your blood. He didn’t show himself like that on his show.
This Barney mod, made by Marcos RC, puts the once-loved purple dinosaur in place of all Ethan’s enemies. When looking through the crypts of Castle Dimitrescu, which aren’t well lit, this mod is especially creepy. This time, don’t go near Barney when he says, With a big kiss and hug from me to you.
Am I using it right? – Fly Swatter
Lady Dimitrescu has been the topic of conversation ever since she was found out, not just because of how tall she is and how much she wants to drink blood. Before Village came out, Lady Dimitrescu was the subject of many gaming community jokes. Some of them are funny, but most of them have a very bad and taste.
Modder EvilLord made the Fly Swatter replace the standard knife at the beginning of the game. If you give some boys who aren’t yet teenagers a fly swatter, they’ll have a great time with it. Right away, videos of players shooing Lady Dimitrescu in the back with a ridiculous swatting sound came out. Since Lady Dimetrescu can’t be killed with a gun, this mod is mostly just for fun.
What is it with people ruining memories from their childhood these days? As if Barney biting off a piece of your throat wasn’t bad enough, XxCRAZYPOTATOxX of Modding Sanctuary has put Thomas the Tank Engine’s head on Lady Dimitrescu.
Thomas also showed up in the Resident Evil 2 remake as a mod for a new enemy. The screenshot gives me the same dread as seeing this train wreck in-game. That smile and those eyes are the stuff of nightmares. Hopefully, modders will be able to add engine noises when she attacks at some point in the future.
Ghostface Enemy Skin Mod
The next entry is right on edge between being completely stupid and scary. Fans of slasher horror movies from the 1980s and 1990s will love how Ghostface replaces the Moroaica enemy type in the crypt of Castle Dimitrescu. When he jumped out of the blood-soaked stories of the winery, he did look pretty scary.
But it also could be how the jump scare is supposed to work. The costume is nicely drawn, but when you get close, you can see that its textures aren’t quite right. When you see him for the first time, it will make you feel many things. However, after seeing him a few times in a group of several Ghostfaces, it starts to get old.
What’re you buyin’? – Duke Merchant Skin Mod
Those who stick around long enough to meet the Duke will hear a nice little allusion to the Merchant from Resident Evil 4, which adds another link between the two games. At one juncture in the base game, the Duke says, What are you buyin’? as a joke. He then laughed and said it was an old friend’s phrase.
Why not have both if you have to choose between one or the other? With JWesker’s Duke’s Merchant outfit mod, players can now see Duke in the everyday clothes that the Merchant wore in Resident Evil 4. What are we going to buy? Oh, nothing. You just brought someone to mind.
Frank West Selfie
People were glad to see Frank West back in Dead Rising 4, but they didn’t like it when he began taking selfies. In interviews with developers before the game came out, they wanted Honest to grow up. We knew Frank West from the Willamette Parkview Mall, but this wasn’t him.
He may be older, but he still has a young personality. Resident Evil Village has an amazing photo mode that shows off the beauty and technical skill of the RE Engine. Then it was Frank West’s job to mess it up. He acts like a father who lives through his son.
Spongebob Paintings and Photos
KushAstronaut has made one of the best mods for Resident Evil Village right now about getting something dirty. Even though they don’t affect the game in any way, the paintings and photos of Spongebob from the show in Ethan’s house, Rose’s children’s book, and Castle Dimitrescu are nothing short of brilliant.
As players look around the rooms of Castle Dimitrescu, they almost run into Lady Dimitrescu but are saved by a painting of Squidward and Balloon Bass. This is the unique thing on this list. Spongebob, you did not get it dirty at all.
