Spikers are vaguely humanoid monsters appearing in Silent Hill: Requiem.
Spikers do possess human like qualities, such as the shape and the ability to walk on two legs, however the similarities end there. Their skin is a very dark gray, almost black, and they are covered in spikes, hence their name. They have the ability to launch spikes from their arms or back, and use their spikes for close quarters engagements. These spikes are nearly indestructible, and some Spikers have been shown to launch them at velocities reaching and going beyond supersonic, and punching clean through wood, metal, and other materials without losing much lethality, however to launch them at such speed requires a sort of charge up time, in which they retract all their spikes into their bodies in preparation to launch them, leaving them highly vulnerable to attack.
