|Race||Creatures of Darkness|
|Game(s)||Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare|
Night Rippers are a subtype of the Creatures of Darkness, which resemble man-sized creatures resembling scorpions with two cadaverous arms and a gaping maw.
Frothing and lumbering with a misshapen and scuttling step, these quadrupeds are a mishmash of body parts—four crab-like legs are fused onto a scaly scorpion body, and two tiny cadaverous arms swing malignantly underneath a gigantic gaping orifice said to be the beast’s head. The beast’s eyes aren’t easily distinguishable—encounters with Night Rippers don’t usually allow time for close inspection. They move swiftly, are extremely strong, and have jaw strength enough to lift a human-sized victim over its head and rip it apart. Face a Night Ripper only if you possess impressive bravery and ordnance.
It was encountered by Edward when he entered the passageway into the gate to the World of Darkness. Like some previous Creatures of Darkness before it, it's appeared as a brief apparation on screen before the real ones appears.
They mostly encountered in the World of Darkness.
- Though weapons like Triple-Barreled Shotgun can be used to deal with them, it's best that the player to use better weapons like Lightning Gun.
- Like when dealing with Ophtalmicid, Night Ripper can turned invisible, but won't hinder the player to detect it by raising their weapon where their arms automatically poined to the creatures' direction even while invisible. But remember, do not overestimate this ability.
- Like the Luxrat, the final design of these creatures is very different from that of the promotional images of the game.
