Type-6803, codenamed "'''The Hermit'''," (''ハーミット'') was one of the mutations created by [[Dr. Roy Curien]] during the events of the original ''House of the Dead''. When [[Thomas Rogan]] and [[G]] confronted him in a strange greenhouse-like room in Chapter Three, he escaped down a moving floor he was standing on. As the agents were about to give chase, Hermit dropped down from the ceiling to attack and distract the agents whilst Curien escaped back to his laboratory to continue work on the [[Magician]]. Its head is its weak point.

'''Type-6803''', codenamed {{Nihongo|'''"Hermit"'''|ハーミット|Hāmitto}}, was an armored, eight-legged insectoid created by genetic engineer [[Dr. Curien]]. It is the third [[Bosses|boss]] in ''[[The House of the Dead]]''.
   
Hermit itself appears to be a huge, armored spider crab-like insectoid creature, and fights in an animalistic way, based upon some of the natural instincts of the creatures it was based on. It starts its assault by diving down the hole where Rogan and G encounter it, and it would hold itself between the edges, quickly crawl toward the agents, and slash them with its unique front claws.

Hermit uses its legs offensively and defensively while firing web-like projectiles; its [[Boss weaknesses|weak point]] is its head.
   
After enough damage is given to the creature, it will drop down the hole and continue its assault as the agents chase it along a metallic tunnel. At this point, it starts firing dangerous web-like projectiles at the agents, and will cover its head as it slowly crawls toward them to repeat the attack pattern it attempted in the first part of the battle. At this point, it is only vulnerable when it lowers its guard to approach the agents more quickly, or when it raises its front claws to attack.

The creature is a horrific hybrid of spider and hermit crab thus tranforming it into this abomination.

Type-6803, codenamed "Hermit" (ハーミット Hāmitto?), was an armored, eight-legged insectoid created by genetic engineer Dr. Curien. It is the third boss in The House of the Dead.

Hermit uses its legs offensively and defensively while firing web-like projectiles; its weak point is its head.

History

Creation

Like the rest of the creatures brought to life in Dr. Curien's mansion, Hermit was incubated inside the BioReactor, a DNA-editing machine, before being unleashed. Alongside Chariot, Hangedman, and Magician, Hermit was considered a "perfect" creation.

1998 Curien Mansion incident

Main article: The House of the Dead (1996 video game)

Hermit was one of several creations unleashed by the insane Curien on December 18th, 1998. When AMS agents Thomas Rogan and "G" confronted him in a cultivation dome, Curien escaped as Hermit ambushed them. Upon death, it collapsed and died, allowing Rogan and "G" to enter Curien's underground laboratory.

Bestiary Overview

Hermit is a large spider-like creature, complete with eight legs, multiple eyes, a thorax, and an abdomen. Writhing tentacle-like attachments protrude from its mouth.

Gameplay

Overview

Hermit is an armored foe who has various methods to make shooting its weak point difficult: it can cover its head with its invulnerable talons, launch barrages of web ball projectiles, and sometimes move and attack upside down. Good accuracy and well-timed shots are critical to catching Hermit when its guard is lowered.

Phases

  1. After retreating into a tunnel, Hermit crawls after the player for a claw swipe. It does not attempt to cover its face, and after 6 shots will retreat further.
  2. Hermit covers its face before releasing web ball projectiles at the player. It then approaches the player as in the previous phase, attempting projectile attack after each time its weak point is shot.
  3. Its health bar almost empty, Hermit slowly crawls towards the player while covering its face; at close range, it will move normally and thus sacrifice its ability to shield its head.

Strategies

  • With good accuracy, it is possible to stun lock Hermit in place, preventing it from attacking for most of the fight.
  • After Hermit dies, each shot to its head is worth a bonus 100 points. Fast and accurate shooting could generate a decent point increase before the final stage.

Trivia

  • Hermit is the only boss that is not fought in the final chapter. It is unknown while, though possible that the developers did not wish to make the player fight the same boss in two consecutive chapters.
    • This makes Hermit the only boss to be only fought once in a non-final stage of the series prior to the release of the The House of the Dead III and 4, the other being Strength (unless being counted as a transformation attack from Emperor).
  • Hermit is the only boss in The House of the Dead to have its own unique death cry.
  • Hermit makes a brief appearance in The House of the Dead 2's intro on console ports.
  • This boss bears resemblance to the Lovers in terms of type number, weak point, and box-like tunnel fighting grounds, though the Lovers are fought inside an elevator shaft.
  • In the The House of the Dead's home console and PC ports, Hermit's mouth lacks the tentacles present in the arcade version.
  • Hermit is the only boss from the original game that has not returned in later installments (Magician returned in 2 and 4's Special version, while Chariot and Hangedman returned in House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn).
