-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This will greatly help you confronting and fighting enemies which you    
will meet later in the game.

1. Do not fight all enemies. This is the no.1 rule. The most important one. It 
may seems to be odd for you but don't do it. As some of the monsters you will  
encounter cannot be killed by any means so just run from them (e.g. victims).  

2. If you run in multiple enemies, the best way is knock down some of them then
run as fast as you can. If they pursue you to the rest of the world, it's up to
you if you will kill them or just run way.

3. Victims, wheel chairs and Walter are some of the enemies that cannot die.   
Eventually, if you keep running with them, you will be the one who will die. So
avoid confrontation with them as long as you can. They can be freeze and stop  
in a time but they would not die even the world die as they were already dead. 
Look for the Monster Bestiary and Boos FAQ for more details and strategies for 
them.

4. Some of the enemies like Gum Heads could steal your items in your care. Be  
sure to check your things if they hit you or something special for you will be 
gone forever. Look for the Monster Bestiary for more details.

5. Try to keep up healing items early in the game as they would be useful later
in the game where your room doesn't heal you anymore. You can use some if you'd
like especially if you're in danger zone.

6. I recommend not picking up the golf club weapons as they would fill up your 
inventory quickly and will be useless after it's broken. If you'd always like  
it you can take it as long as you free some space for more powerful weapons    
waiting for you to pick them up.

7. Don't waste ammo. They would come in a rare amount early in the game and    
doesn't damage much. I recommend bringing melee weapons such as steel pipe as  
they have charge attack that is stronger than the pistol. But if it too risky  
and your life is in danger, use it instead for a lifesaver to avoid            
contact on enemies.

8. Always use charge attack! Abuse it! They there! Charge attack is done by    
being in Pose mode and holding down the action button. You can notice a c-     
shaped bar on the right of your life bar which denotes how much time you       
would spend before you can unleash it. It will flash as soon it is full and    
ready to blow some butt. As soon as you release X button and put up some brain 
exploding attack, you will be invulnerable from any hit by the enemies. Sweet! 

9. Stomp enemy! It would be a total waste of time if you to hit them with      
weapons. As soon as they drop down, stomp down on it! It's an instant kill!    
One stomp would be enough to kill them.

10. Look at the enemy's stance! You can know when they would attack if they    
change it's stance. Example, a Sniffer Dog is moon walking when he/she saw you 
and changes it's move like a barking dog. It means it's charging for an attack.
Look closely!

11. Use healing items especially in the second half of the game where your room
doesn't heal you anymore. 

12. Kill 120+ enemies. It's a way to get a 10-Star Ranking after the game.

13. In fighting ghost-victims, always equip a Saint Medallion to avoid getting 
damages from their ghost auras. then pin them with the Sword of Obedience after
they fall down. I recommend to use the sword in the 4 major victims and victim 
no. 4. Why Victim-04? Because he appears in all places the most. You have 5    
swords so why doesn't you use the last one to the ghost you hate most.

14. Only victim-05 and victim-15 are the ghost victim you will never fight. You
can meet victim-15 but instead of fighting it, he'll help you to defeat the    
final boss.

15. Pinning a ghost with Sword of Obedience work sometimes hard. Whack them,   
wait until they really fall down. Sometime sit takes time to drop them down    
since they will float again and again. If that how it works, simply attack it  
again and again until you can stomp it. It means it truly does fall down and   
be ready to pin it. Selecting it in the inventory does pinning a ghost and     
when the chance is right, meaning the ghost fall down, press square button for 
Henry to pin it. Simple :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Victims 07+08 can be found also at the BOSS FAQ. Only victim-05 isn't    
capable of attacking you because he's sided with you. I will not pursue you to 
use range weapons such as pistol as if melee weapons are stronger and they have
charge attack. Here is the format:

Sniffer Dogs (Male)
...................
Mostly found: Everywhere, first half of the game
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun, Spade
Attack Rate: 2/5
Speed Rate: 4.5/5
HPs: 2/5

Description: Sniffers are dog-like monsters that have long tongues. Their      
             tongues are originally made for sipping bloods in the body of it's
             victim. Male Sniffers are weaker than the female ones. Males are  
             yellowish in color while females are pinkish.

Strategy: You always see them by groups. Using charge-attacks usually knocks   
          them in one hit. If you downed one, walk instead of running because  
          if you run they would be more aggressive. Stomp then kills the other 
          one by one. If you tend to run, run in a zigzag pattern so they      
          would not hit you.

Broucoulacas says: Running alerts them to your presence and gets them all going
                   at you like torpedoes. If you simply walk and maintain your 
                   distance, they will not hear you and, unless you pass close 
                   by one of them, they will usually leave you alone entirely. 

          Yeah I know I've been a dumb but for some reasons I thank you for 
          saying this one. I know this too but I forgot to write it. Yeah I 
          suggest too that you must walk in a distance to avoid them chasing
          you.

Speed Strategy: Run! The best way to do in early games, as your weapons are    
                weak that it would take 8-9 hits before they begin to fall. As 
                mentioned above, run in a zigzag pattern to avoid taking damage
                from them. But if you don't want them to chase you, walk! This 
                will save you from taking damages from this dogs.

Sniffer Dogs (Female)
.....................
Mostly found: Everywhere, second half of the game
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun, Spade
Attack Rate: 2.5/5
Speed Rate: 4.5-5/5
HPs: 2.5/5

Description: Unlike the males, females are more aggressive and more powerful.  
             They also have a new move called "lunge attack" in which they     
             would grind your leg. They have the same statistic in males       
             except that they are pinkish.

Strategy: They would mostly appear in the second part of the game. They always 
          come in a group too! The same strategy on the males is recommended   
          in fighting this sniffers. Be careful! They're more powerful now.    

Speed Strategy: Same as the male ones but they're faster and more furious than 
                the other one. The best way is to run in zigzag or walk in a 
                distance!

.......
Hummers
.......
Mostly found: Forest World 1 & 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): Bug Spray, anything
Attack Rate: 1/5
Speed Rate: 3.5/5
HPs: 1/5

Description: Bat-like creatures that fly above. They always come in groups and 
             have sharp fangs and teeth ready to peck out your body. They are  
             bat, insect mixed creatures that swarms by group. They are very   
             weak though.

Strategy: They weak and easy to kill with any weapons in one hit. Fast weapons 
          like steel pipe and golf club are ideal for fighting them. When they 
          drop down, commence stomping on them before they fly up again.

Speed Strategy: Same as the above but don't always fight them. They're useless 
                to deal with if you like a 10-star rank.

Wall Men
........
Mostly found: Subway World 1 & 2, Water Prison World 1 
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe
Attack Rate: 3.5/5
Speed Rate: 3/5
HPs: 3/5

Description: Wall Men are stationary because they are stuck on the wall. Quiet 
             deadly but the only downfall is that they cannot move from their  
             location.

Strategy: Hitting them with regular attacks continuously would stunned them.   
          Keep beating until they gone and it means they're already dead.      
          Avoid fighting them as long as you can cause they can't even follow  
          because they're stuck on the wall. If they're blocking your path,    
          attack until they slump then run pass them.

Speed Strategy: Run as you don't need to fight them. If you can't, beat it     
                down and then run.

........................
Tremers (blue & and red)
........................
Mostly Found: Water Prison World 1 & 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): Stomp on them
Attack Rate: n/a
Speed Rate: 1-3/5
HPs: 1/5

Description: Slug-like creatures, they are often found climbing walls or       
             slithering on the ground. They can move around ceilings and walls 
             then drop on the floor. They can't harm you unless you touch      
             them.

Strategy: If they're on the walls, you can attack one times and they will fall 
          down ready to stomp. However, if you manage to hit them directly on  
          the wall, they would likely to die and squeeze like a chocolate bar. 
          One hit would kill them so no worries. They are one of the easy-kill 
          enemies because of one strike explode the butt of them.

Speed Strategy: Run. If there are some in areas, hold down the action button.  
                If one blocks the almighty Henry, they would die. Easy kill?

             They will sprout out of the ground if you get near the place where
             they were installed.

Strategy: Whack them out! They're the easiest monster to deal with in one hit. 
          Sweet! Easiest way to get 10-star ranks.

Speed Strategy: Same as the above or just run off the road.

Gum Heads (Old type)
....................
Mostly found: Building World 1 & 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun
Attack Rate: 3-3.5/5
Speed Rate: 3-3.5/5
HPs: 3-4/5

Description: Blackish hairless monkey-like monsters with some mutated parts in 
             the body. Often leaping around and laughing at you! If you here   
             some laughing idiot somewhere in the room that means they're      
             there. Unpredictable creatures that can dodge attacks too.        

Strategy: Charge attack would knock them easily. Prefer using fast and strong  
          weapons like Rusty Axe to knock down them quickly. Stomp then it     
          dies. Running to them is a good choice. If you get near them, there  
          is a possibility that they would attack you or just laugh at you! I  
          hate them the most.

Speed Strategy: Never fight them unless they block your way or you're really   
                really pissed off and ready to whack out they're mouth.        

*Extra Note: Only Gum Head creatures could steal your items. So watch out! If  
             something is missing in your inventory, check out the corpse of   
             Gum Heads you've faced off. May be it holds the missing item?

Gum Heads (New Type)
....................
Mostly found: Building World 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun, Spade
Attack Rate: 3-4/5
Speed Rate: 3-3.5/5
HPs: 3-4/5

Description: Pinkish hairless monkey-like monsters without the deformation the 
             the older type has. They were also using golf clubs as a weapon.  
             After you defeat them, you can get the items they'd drop near the 
             the dead body. Faster and more unpredictable than their older     
             counterpart.

Strategy: They are much stronger and faster now. Be careful if they're using   
          golf clubs. Only approach them if you've already have a charged      
          attack. Stomp then get the items they drop as you wish.

Speed Strategy: Never fight them unless they block your way or you're really   
                really pissed off and ready to whack out they're mouth.        

*Extra Note: Only Gum Head creatures could steal your items. So watch out! If  
             something is missing in your inventory, check out the corpse of

Patient
.......
Mostly found: Hospital World, Outside Room 302
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun, Spade, Pickaxe of Despair      
Attack Rate: 4-5
Speed Rate: 3.5-4/5
HPs: 4/5

Description: Female patients of the hospital. Tall and wielding some heavy     
             blunt but fast weapon. Strong and have a large amount of HP.      
             They will make a loud noise if you hit them. 

Strategy: Use only charge attacks on them as they, would be hard to fall. If   
          they are really near from you, use regular attacks instead. Be       
          careful as they're attack can be a pain and very fast. 

Speed Strategy: Same as the above. You can run but be sure Eileen is safe      
                from any harm.

............
Wheel Chairs
............
Mostly found: Hospital World, Building World 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): RUN!
Attack Rate: 2.5/5
Speed Rate: 3/5
HPs: unknown

Description: Spirits died on the wheel chair patrolling the areas they reside  
             it. They have ghost aura just like victims which drains your      
             life. They will not chase you just like victims. They will just   
             drive on the room randomly.

Strategy: Run! The best way to fight them is to run. They can't die anyway     
          and will hurt you if they hit you. If they hit you, you will fall    
          down. It's useless to fight them as they can't die or knock down     
          but can be stunned or weakened by using Saint Medallion or Holy      
          Candles.

Speed Strategy: RUN!

.......
Bottoms
.......
Mostly found: Outside Room 302
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Stun Gun, Pickaxe of Despair, Spade
Attack Rate: 4/5
Speed Rate: 3.5-4.5/5
HPs: 4.5/5

Description: Large, uncloaked monsters similar to the twin victims except that 
             they can damage you more. It has a head on the underside of its   
             hideous body. They are more aggressive and powerful than Victim-07
             +08. They only show in the final area of the game.

Strategy: The best way is to run on them and evade when they attack. They      
          would be in a large group in the final area of the game. Probably 5  
          or more including Victim-07+08. They turn slowly that you can run    
          pass easily on them when you're behind. Use this advantage to run    
          fast.

Speed Strategy: Run but if you get pissed off, run instead. :)

HPs: 4/5

Description: Billy and Miriam Locaine. Victim 07121 and 08121. They are the

             cloaked creatures with a double face of a baby. Uses its 2 arms to
             walk and run.

Strategy: Best to use charge attack then stomp on them when they knocked down. 
          Run if you can as you usually fight it in a huge room. Use the space 
          as an advantage and its weakness in turning into its back to run.    

Speed Strategy: Same as the above.

Attack Rate: 4-4.5/5
Speed Rate: 3.5-4/5
HPs: 4.5/5

Description: The difference between the older version and this newer one, is   
             that they have panels which they can use to move but only up and  
             down. They can inflict more damage and they are much bigger than  
             the older one.

Strategy: When they're going up. Simply charge an attack then when they ascend 
          attack. Then continue using regular attacks until they die.

Speed Strategy: Ignore them. They can't even hit you as long as you are far    
                from them.

Mostly found: Building World 2
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe
Attack Rate: 5/5
Speed Rate: 4-4.5/5
HPs: 5/5

Description: Large Wall Men (New Type). The trick to this puzzle is that, one  
             out of the many is the real one. You will know if you've found it 
             when you attack, they all seem to be hurt. They have the same     
             power with the new type. The only difference is that they are     
             harder to beat down and kill.

Strategy: You can't pass out this room until you kill the One Truth. Simply try
          hitting each one. You will know if you've found it if they seem to be
          hurt all. Eileen will help you killing the One Truth if you found it.

Speed Strategy: Same as the above. Just be careful not be hit. Ouch!

Description: A giant worm you can always see in the game. It doesn't hurt you

Strategy: Ignore it.

Speed Strategy: Ignore again and again.

Description: Known as Victim 1, 2, 3, 6, and 9. They are the weakest ghosts. He
             is average in all statistics. The first ghost you will meet. One  
             of the weakest ghost. Pale white skin and in a scrap bloody       
             clothes. Looks more of a zombie. 

Strategy: Run! Of course, ghost can never die whatever you do because their    
          already dead matters roaming around the dark side of the world. If   
          they ruin or block your path, whack them. Do not use Sword of        
          Obedience to them because they're weak and you will just litter the  
          true power of that sword later in the game.

Speed Strategy: Run! Nothing cares. Just ignore them and run fast. Don't ever  
                try to duel with them.

Description: Steve Garland was a pet shop owner in the Business world. Steve is
             one of the only ghost victims to use a weapon. Wielding a little  
             spade, you know he'll be a hard enemy. Always wondering in every  
             world so expect to see him much. Pale white skin and wearing a    
             worn blue shirt.

Strategy: Run! Anyway, he will show himself to you most in every world and is a
          hard one too. The best way is to knockdown him and pin him one of the
          the 5 Sword of Obedience so you can never see his face again.        

Speed Strategy: Run same as ever!

*Extra Note: I advise you to use one of the five Sword of Obedience you will   
             find throughout the game on him, as he is one of the most frequent
             ghosts.

Description: Billy and Miriam Locaine. Victim 07121 and 08121. They are the    
             only people killed by Walter to turn into monsters instead of     
             victims. They can run past, but turn rather slowly. Large, black  
             cloaked creatures with a double face of a baby. Uses its 2 arms to
             walk and run. They don't have auras like the other victims.

Strategy: Best to use charge attack then stomp on them when they knocked down. 
          Run if you can as you usually fight it in a huge room. Use the space 
          as an advantage and its weakness in turning into its back to run.    

Speed Strategy: Same as the above.

Strategy: Nothing to worry. I advise you to take the sword in his chest as it  
          would be a waste. He's not that strong and powerful. He isn't show in
          many areas though. So take it! Run afterwards! Don't bother fighting

             he's the weakest.

Mostly found: Subway World 2 
Most Effective Weapon (s): Sword of Obedience, Saint Medallion, Rusty Axe
Attack Rate: 4/5
Speed Rate: 4/5
HPs: 4/5

Description: Cynthia Velasquez ghost. She is one of the hardest ghost in the   
             game. She has a long long hair just like Sadako in The Ring :) She
             has an ability to crawl out and leaves a black liquid thing on the
             ground if she's cornered. He has a moderate power and a fast one  
             too.

Strategy: I suggest pinning her the Sword of Obedience because she will be a   
          really pain in the game if you don't. Equip a Saint Medallion to     
          weaken her so you can easily dispatch it and stomp on. After that,   
          pin her with the sword. Leave the sword in her!

Speed Strategy: After the cut scene, rapidly go to her and start punishing her.
                Eileen will help you if she gets near. Equipping the Saint     
                Medallion will remove her aura and weaken her so the whacking  
                time would be fast. Whack her until she falls down and can be  
                pin down.

Description: Jasper Gein is a tough ghost too. He holds the chalice that he was
             holding when he died. Nothing can describe what his face now but  
             all we know is that he's burned by fire and now floating the realm
             as a flame ghost.

Strategy: I suggest pinning her the Sword of Obedience because he will be a    
          pain later in the game. Equip a Saint Medallion same as ever to      
          weaken him. After that, pin him with the sword. Leave the sword in   
          him.

Speed Strategy: Same as the old way but do it faster. Eileen will help you if  
                you have her with you. If you can't beat him, you can bring a  
                Pistol and a Silver Bullet. By this time, you should have it at
                least one. Reload the Silver Bullet to the Pistol. Shoot him   
                and move fast to him. Stomp him to make sure he doesn't wake up
                again, if he does, whack him until he falls down. Pin him with 
                the sword. Simple.

Speed Rate: 4/5
HPs: 5/5

Description: Andrew Desalvo's ghost is pretty strong. His barrel move isn't the
             greatest move that you want to encounter. He is bigger and fatter 
             now than the last time you saw him maybe because of Walter drown  
             him. He's tummy was marked 18121. He has the greatest hit points  
             in all ghost and one of the strongest. He also sings a stupid song
             which I hated most.

Strategy: I suggest using the Sword of Obedience. Start by using Silver Bullet 
          in him. Believe me that you don't want to defeat him in a close fight
          . If Eileen were here the fight would be easier. Equip a Saint       
          Medallion to weaken him then shoots the Silver Bullet. If he persist,
          spank him until he really falls down. Then pin him with the sword. He
          killed me the first time I saw him. He even doesn't fall even I shoot
          him with the Silver Bullet. He's a stupid moron.   

Speed Strategy: Same as the above. Beware of his "barrel" move. It can knock   
                you temporarily.

Description: Richard Braintree is one of the creepiest ghosts in the game. He's
             using a Steel Pipe-looking weapon to attack you. A deadly one too 
             cause he can teleport at your back and attack you. He looks       
             thinner now than he looks in the past. He can also unleash a      
             multiple hit combo.

Strategy: He can teleport, average attacking power and speed but, easy to beat 
          the guy down. He can't teleport if you keep beating him nor you're   
          too far from him. If you have a remaining Silver Bullet use it to    
          him. He's the last ghost victim in the game so just use the last     
          Sword of Obedience on him. Whack him until he falls down and pin him 
          with the sword. Now he can never bother you anymore!

Speed Strategy: Same as the old but to be fast use the Silver Bullet on him. I 
                think you should get 2 Silver Bullets in the whole game so use 
                it on Victim-18 and 19 only as they were the hardest to beat up
                to the ground. Equip a Saint Medallion always.

Description: Walter Sullivan is an annoyance in the game. The most powerful    
             victim in the game. He doesn't have ghost aura just like other    
             victim but the most dangerous one. He wore a blue coat. He likes  
             to carry deadly weapons usually you could use it too later in the 
             game. Possible combinations of weapons use by him are:

             Steel Pipe & Pistol
             Chainsaw
             Dual Pistols

             He cannot die like the other victims do but you can knock him down
             in a minute. I suggest not fighting him.
 
Strategy: As mentioned above, you cannot kill him but he can kill you easily!  
          He can run fast same as Henry can do. So just run. DO NOT FIGHT HIM  
          even the world die and whatever.

Speed Strategy: Just RUN (period)

Walter Sullivan (Final Boss), the "Conjurer"
............................................
Mostly found: Outside Room 302, Ritual Area
Most Effective Weapon (s): Rusty Axe, Pickaxe of Despair
Attack Rate: 5/5
Speed Rate: 5/5
HPs: 5/5

Description: The final battle has begun. "I must complete the 21 sacraments."  
             As a final boss, nothing much special about him. Except that he's 
             wielding only a steel pipe and a pistol. He can also teleports if 
             you're too far from him. You can't beat him unless you have the   
             Umbilical Cord.

Strategy: Bring any weapon you desire most. I usually bring the Pickaxe of     
          Despair to beat him. He doesn't even hit me when I used this. To     
          come this to an end, you MUST bring the Umbilical Cord. If you don't 
          , reset the game or just waste your time reaching a gameover screen. 
          I suggest not using Revolver. Why? If you run out of ammo you're     
          already dead. Also you need at least 4 free spaces to easily get the 
          8 Spears of the Holy Mother. After the cut scene, run fast to the big
          monster in the top-middle of the room. Use the Umbilical Cord in it. 
          If it doesn't work, move closer and use it. Then run around and get  
          all 8 spears. It's your decision if you go for the left side or the  
          right side first because each side have a 4 spears each. I suggest   
          running in a either side then get the 4 spears. Use it on the monster
          then run via the side you didn't visited yet then get the last 4     
          spears. Use it on the monster; afterwards beat Walter to the heaven. 
          He can now die. It's up to you if you want Eileen to die or to live. 

Speed Strategy: Same as the above but I prefer using Pickaxe of Despair instead
                any other weapons because it would kill Walter in about 8-10   
                hits. Remember freeing atleast 4 inventory spaces for the      
                spears.

7. Frequently Asked Questions                                  . . . *sh4_mb_7*
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Some of the answers and questions here can also be found at the Golden
Rules section. I will only put the questions regarding the monster you'll 
face in the game and how to defeat them all.

Q1. Why my Sword of Obedience is gone? I place it in my storage box and when I 
    came back it gone. What had happened?
A1. It is possible that Gum Heads stole it to you. When you face them, they    
    usually steals weapons and items from you to use against you probably melee
    weapons or items. If found out that they usually steals a Steel Pipe from  
    you if you have it. If ever something is missing from your inventory, try  
    retracing the Gum Heads you've face. Check their body after they've died to
    see if they have the item that is missing from you. 

Q2. How can I kill a ghost? 
A2. Never and will never forever you can kill a ghost. You can also stop them  
    temporarily or just for a long time.

Q3. How can I beat the Man in the Coat?
A3. You can't beat him but he can beat you in a second. Avoid him at all cost. 

Q4. How can I use a Sword of Obedience?
A4. Simply whack the ghost victim you want to use for and wait until it falls  
    down. You will know if you can pin it if you can stomp on it. If you can   
    stomp the victim, place the item inventory to the sword and press the item 
    use button, done by pressing square button. If you don't wan to see that   
    ghost again, leave the sword. If you want to see him again and again, 
    remove the sword. I suggest using the 5 swords in Victim-04, 16, 17, 18 & 
    19. 

Q5. How can I remove the Sword of Obedience in the victim?
A5. Just go near the victim pinned by the sword and press the action button. 
    You will be prompt if you want to remove the sword. Choose yes.

Q6. How can I equip Eileen a weapon?
A6. Just get near her and use the weapon. It will be marked as equipped if you
    successfully manage to give it to her. She will sometimes help you to 
    pummel some enemies.

Q7. How can I unequip Eileen's weapon?
A7. Simply go near her and use the weapon equipped on her.

Q8. How can that one ghost take his 40` through the walls with him?
A8. Ghost can't pass through walls. They just came out from a black jelly-
    looking things in the walls. I don't understand what 40` thing are you 
    talking about but all I know is that ghost just float in the mid-air and 
    follow you around after they came out that jelly thing.

Q9. If you have the doll, does that affect Eileen's health?
A9. No. It's just a little piece of junk that hunts you in Room 302 above the  
    storage box. They maybe connected but it really doesn't affect Eileen's
    health.

Q10. Is the doll some type of monster?
A10. As mentioned above, it does hunt you in Room 302 and damage you like 
     other huntings do. It can be avoided by not taking the Shabby Doll and not
     putting it in the storage box. You can take it but never put it inside the
     box. In a short answer, it's a hauntings not a monster.

Q11. Can I kill Eileen with my own bare hand?
Q11. I tried it before and Henry just can't kill her even worsen her condition.
     Eileen can only take damages from monsters.

Q12. Can Eileen die in the game?
A12. Simply no. She can only die at the final area where Walter finishes the 21
     sacraments.

Q13. How can I heal Eileen?
A13. You can heal her by using Holy Candles. Wait for her to stand up and walk 
     near her. Use it and Henry will place it on the floor. Wait the candle to 
     be lit off to be sure that she was cured. If you move too far Eileen will
     follow you and the Holy Candle healing effects will not occur. Be sure
     the candle/s is/are below her always.

Q14. How can this happen? I healed Eileen before the scene with Joseph in Room
     302 of the past. After that, when she followed me Outside Room 302, I 
     found out that she was bloodied again. Is this normal?
A14. Yes. To avoid losing Holy Candles, try not to heal her before this scene  
     or your fate will be like mine the first time I played the game.

Q15. Is there any other use of the Holy Candles except that they can remove the
     hauntings and heal Eileen?
A15. Yes. It slows her in the final battle. This means the slower she walks, 
     the slower she will be dead.

Q16. Is it true that when you have the Doll in your box, does Eileen take more
     damage in other worlds than usual?
A16. 

Da Dood says: From my experience, she becomes possessed much quicker. It's a 
whole other story about the damage... because I believe they're separate - but 
connected - things. :)

Q17. Can I play about 2 players in the game cause the cover said multiplayer?
A17. My own question :)

piecemealcranky says: No, you cannot play 2 players in this game.

Q18. Is it the Victim-Old Type who haunts me and the first ghost I saw in the  
     first cutscene?

Hello I'm Mhar Benedict from the Philippines. I am 13 years old now. I couldn't
put my surname for some security reason, you know why. Don't expect me that    
much in spellings and grammars because I'm still learning English but I'm not  
that bad after all. I'm a highschool student, still studying of course. I'm 2nd
year now and it was our summer vacation now. It sure it was very hot in here.  

I like playing RPG, horror and adventure games. I love playing with my brother.
We are now in a duel in NFSU2. Hence, my car is greater than him, much faster  
and fashioned. I hate using cheat. I'm no spoilers too. I'll be in Section 1 in
this coming school year.

About contacting me, just e-mail me at mharbenedict11@yahoo.com if you have
complaints, questions or corrections about my FAQ and the game. Try looking 
first in the guide. If the answers are already in the guide, I would simply
ignore the letter you wrote for me.

I'll directly credit your name as soon as you e-mail me and help my FAQ to be  
better. Any help will be credited. If you found out your name or site wasn't   
credited below, visit www.gamefaqs.com in Silent Hill 4 message boards as I    
would be there always via e-mail me at mharbenedict11@yahoo.com. I don't have  
any IM because it just made our computer slow or stuck in some unknown case. Be
not shy in contacting me as I would answer each of your e-mail.

creating a guide for them.
