(a.k.a., Demon Child, Mumbler)
Former children that roam the halls of Midwich Elementary School, and the grounds of Lakeshore Amusement Park, in Konami's 1999 Playstation Silent Hill video game. Killing or harming a child, even a demonic one, is understandably controversial, so this particular monster was cut from the game in some regions and replaced with Clawfingers/Mumblers (the North American version, which is what I own, has both diminutive creature species).
These hideously-deformed children slash their intended prey with the knives they always carry. Child #3s also favor latching onto a victim's leg, immobilizing the individual until he or she can manage to shake themselves free--this tactic works especially well when there are two or more of the fiends, as one will hold the target while the others attack with their blades. A group of them can easily overwhelm a person in this fashion, particularly if they manage to trap him or her in a corner. Most adults are reluctant to harm children, even monstrous ones; this natural hesitation often works to the advantage of these small killers.
These juveniles toddle about at a leisurely pace and can be outmaneuvered with relative ease. While stronger and more damage-resistant than a normal, human child of the same size, these monsters are still relatively weak in comparison to a healthy adult.
(In no particular order of importance.)
