If you’ve played Resident Evil 7 or Resident Evil Village, then you know it’s become a meme that Ethan Winters has incredibly bad luck when it comes to injuring his hands. From getting them sliced to having them straight up cut right off, Ethan has suffered through a lot.
To be fair though, the developers at Capcom probably don’t have a weird hatred for Ethan’s hands. They probably just get hurt so often because the game is in first-person and it’s a lot easier for the player to see and experience hand injuries since they’re always right in your face.
Despite countless scratches, scrapes, and tears, Ethan still perseveres and somehow manages to just brush everything off. Either the first aid medicine in Resident Evil 7 & Resident Evil Village is godly, or either he is some sort of Captain America like super-solider unbeknownst to everyone including himself.
Some of Ethan’s injuries are nothing to scoff at, though, and in real life could easily kill someone. As such, we did the only logical thing we could think of and made a list ranking each of Ethan Winter’s Hand injuries in Resident Evil, ranging from not so bad, to don’t even want to think about.
Spoiler warning for Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village
Getting His Left Hand Cut By Lady Dimitrescu
Starting off the list is a simple, but painful-looking slice to the hand. Ethan obtains this injury when he enters Castle Dimitrescu and is discovered by the Dimitrescu sisters. They impale his legs with scythe-like blades and drag him to the tall vampire queen that is Lady Dimitrescu.
To taste some of his blood, she cuts his hand with a knife and begins to feast. Ultimately, it’s the nasty wound on this list, but it definitely wouldn’t tickle. Plus, it probably doesn’t feel nice to have blood sucked out of your body.
With all that said, Ethan could easily wrap this wound up and not have to worry about it, plus it’s not all that gross or gory, so it makes the bottom of the list. Tis’ but a scratch.
