Cut from

The Tumbling Torsos are undead enemies that were removed from MediEvil.[2] They can be seen in an early trailer found on the PlayStation Plus Video Preview 1997 VHS. The Tumbling Torsos were intended to appear in the Pumpkin Gorge,[3] Cemetery Hill,[4] and possibly The Graveyard level.[2] Their model can be found in the MediEvil ECTS Pre-Alpha.[5]



Tumbling Torsos were green zombie torsos with exposed ribcages. Their heads had been cut off, or had fallen off, as only bloody stumps with a bit of bone jutting out remained in their place. Everything below the waist was missing too. This did not leave them helpless however, as they were quite capable of using their intact arms to get around.
