Groaner. Featured in: Silent Hill (Video Game, Jan 31, 1999). Appearing as a demonic dog with rotten skin and oversized jaws, a Groaner's small size and agility make them difficult targets to hit. They will circle their prey, jumping in with quick bites or full-on lunges. Believed to represent Alessa's dislike for large dogs as she was often frightened by barking dogs as a child.
