KIPEPEO (RESIDENT EVIL)
Resident Evil 5: Biohazard (game)
Resident Evil: Retribution (movie)
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (movie)
The Kipepeo was a form of Type 2 Plagas created by TRICELL to market the sales of B.O.W.s to bioterrorists, with their flight capabilities being of interest. Some majini hosting Kipepeo were killed in front of Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar, as the parasites broke out of their host’s bodies.
A flock of Kipepeo were responsible for Kirk Mathison’s death after they attacked his helicopter, which Chris and Sheva both witnessed. This plaga form was also responsible for slowing down Doug’s journey to Jill Valentine and Josh Stone’s evac. coordinates.
- Kipepeo will only appear either without a host or emerge from a host infected by a Type 2 Plagas. As such the types of Plaga appear: Kipepeo on Type 2 Plaga, Cephalo on Type 2 or Type 3 Plaga and Duvalia on Type 3 Plaga.
- The Kipepeos are seen at the ending of Resident Evil: Retribution.
- They return in the Final Chapter. According to Anderson, they were introduced so humanity no longer had air superiority over the undead.
