As no doubt intended by Capcom, the Lickers in Resident Evil always give me the willies (strange choice of words - Ed). Creeping towards me with their insides out and their outsides in, their long tongues like whips trying to make a meat-snack of my intrepid hero's body… they’re the things of nightmares, come to life in video game form. Oh, then Resident Evil 5 comes along and Capcom makes an even stronger Licker called Licker B. Fantastic!
These are bigger, faster, and stronger Lickers, but they have a big weakness: their hearts. If you can manage to stun one and knock it onto its back, stand over it, activate the prompt, then you can watch Chris or Sheva unsheathe his or her knife and plunge it right into the sick bastard’s heart. I wish I could keep doing it after the first stab, once for every minute of sleep lost to those fiends (seek help - Ed).
