Strange flora that grow in the Abandoned Mine, Black Marble Gallery, Long Library, and Cave in Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night. Often mistaken for Thornweeds, which they closely resemble, when in their dormant state. May drop a healing potion or bottle of antivenom when destroyed.
The leaves of Corpseweeds have razor edges, touching them without protection will result in a painful lesson not soon forgotten. When stimulated by the presence of trespassers, these plants bloom, transforming from a short shrub into a towering vine (approximately 14 ft/4.3 m tall). The fruiting body of the sprouted stalk, which resembles a rotten, human head, spews toxic nectar at the offender. Corpseweeds are springy and elastic in nature, they can be crushed almost flat (a not uncommon occurrence as many of Castlevania's other evil denizens are quite large and heavy and none too considerate about what they step on) and suffer minimal damage.
These plants are slow to react, a fast attack can destroy them before they can bloom. Corpseweeds burn readily and are deathly afraid of fire. While resistant to being crushed, the long, narrow stem, when erect, can easily be hacked apart by any edged weapon. Like most plants, Corpseweeds are rooted in place and stationary, this puts them at a distinct disadvantage against an opponent which can move.

Mid-construction photo of my Corpseweed figure. It is complete, but unpainted with the exception of the head/fruiting body (which has remained unattached to this point, despite being the first thing I made, to avoid complications when the leaves that will surround it are painted):
