** Emphasizing the fact that Mercer is an unhinged fanatic even by the standards of the other Unitologists, there's a looping video in one of the dorms before you encounter the Hunter for the second time where he tries and fails to convince a band of offscreen Unitologists to accept that the necromorphs are the Convergence promised by the church -- and fails, as they turn their backs on him in disgust.

* HeroicWillpower: Said to have a notable strong will that kept her resistant to both to the Marker and the Earth-Gov conspiracy's temptations. Sadly her resistance to the latter leads to her downfall when Earth-Gov decides she's a liability.

* TheBigGuy: As a buff and big ex-marine, he's the strongest of the survivors and the one known for taking out the biggest Necromorphs. He even managed to fight his way out from the Earth-Gov interrogators before unintentionally killing himself.

* TheScapegoat: Cho is turned into this by Earth-Gov in order to cover up the events that transpired at Aegis VII as punishment for refusing their job offer in studying the Markers. She's lobotomized to keep her quiet and framed to the public as a terrorist that massacred the crew on Aegis VII, the Ishimura and the O'Bannon before being held at the Sprawl to be tried for her "crimes".

* ClusterFBomb: Swears like a sailor in response to all the horror he's seen.
* HopeSpot: Led to believe he was getting away unharmed before he got shot in the head.
* OnlySaneMan: Remained resistant to the Marker's influence like Cho, and the only male to show no change in attitude in response to the events on the O'Bannon. Lampshaded by Borges himself.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Gets his head blasted when the Earth-Gov interrogators decided he wasn't useful since he hadn't made direct contact with the Marker fragment.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Boss Necromorphs in ''Dead Space 3'']]
!! The Regenerators

A Necromorph type first encountered about the USM ''Terra Nova''. Like the Hunter and Ubermorph before it, it regenerates lost limbs at a rapid pace, making killing it permanently a difficult proposition. Unlike the Hunter and Ubermorph, there's more than one Regenerator.

* BonusBoss: Although the first set of Regenerators (aboard the ''Terra Nova'') are unavoidable, a later set is encountered in an optional mission towards the end of the game.
* KillItWithFire: Subverted. These guys are ''fireproof'', so flame-weapons have no effect on them whatsoever.
* PaletteSwap: Looks a bit more like the Hunter than the Ubermorph, except its skin is very pale and has Marker runes carved all over it.

!!The Snow Beast

A large Necromorph that is encountered on Tau Volantis.

* CombatTentacles: Has a trio of them on its back, plus another set in its face.
* CowardlyBoss: In the first two encounters, [[spoiler:it retreats after enough damage has been done]].
* GiantEnemyCrab: It looks a lot like an enormous, alien crustacean. Fittingly, given that [[spoiler: Tau Volantis was originally a [[SingleBiomePlanet water-world]] before the Aliens froze it solid as part of their HeroicSacrifice]].
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler: Isaac ultimately finishes it off by using two harpoon guns to impale it and then pull it in half]].
* HealingFactor: Can regrow its back tentacles repeatedly.
* SuperPersistentPredator: It attacks Isaac shortly after he crashes on the planet and [[spoiler:continues to stalk him throughout most of the game. Even after he fights it off several times, it keeps hunting him.]]

!!The Nexus

Several giant Necromorphs Isaac and Ellie find frozen on Tau Volantis. Isaac has to explore the inside of one to locate the origin of the Markers, which thaws it out.

* {{Expy}}: Similar to the HiveMind from the first game; even the game's achievement text calls it the Hivemind, probably because it ''is'' one, albeit one made from aliens, not humans.
* MookMaker: Similarly to the Hivemind, except it spawns Enhanced Feeders.
* WombLevel: Twice. During the second time, you are promptly [[SwallowedWhole swallowed whole]] and forced to kill it from the inside.

!!The Moon

A [[GeniusLoci Brother Moon]] that has gone into hibernation due to the machine that turned Tau Volantis into an ice planet, this unfinished [[UltimateLifeForm Convergence Necromorph]] is masquerading as Tau Volantis' broken moon, using the Marker signal to call other humans to it to wake it up and "[[ArcWords make it whole]]." Due to this, it serves as a Bigger Bad, manipulating [=EarthGov=], Unitology, and many more for its cause.

* AffablyEvil: Not the one Isaac fights, which doesn't have any speaking lines, but the ones speaking through the "prophet" in the Awakened DLC are rather polite for planet-eating abominations.
* TheChessmaster: Manipulated everyone in the series at one point or another until 3. [[spoiler:Those who it didn't tended to end up dead, except for a select few.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Seen prominently throughout the game, [[spoiler:shown on various posters and promotional material, literally hiding in painfully obvious sight from the protagonists throughout the entirety of the game.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Isaac and Carver, two characters who barely measure up to the size of its ''teeth'', manage to not only go toe-to-toe with it, [[spoiler:but end up doing what the [[BenevolentPrecursors aliens]] failed to accomplish and actually ''kill'' the Brethren Moon with [[MacGuffin the Machine]].]]
* EldritchAbomination: It fits the description of one more so than any other Necromorph. [[spoiler:It has the ability to send out signals to its brethren to awaken them, cause hallucinations and madness, is incredibly massive with enormous CombatTentacles, and ''swallows'' entire planets.]]
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Its weak points are its eyes, and it can only be weakened by hurling Markers at them.]]
* FinalBoss: The final boss of ''3''.
* GeniusLoci: A representative of [[spoiler:an ''entire race'' of creatures that seem moons.]]
* GreaterScopeVillain: Of the entire series up to 3, [[spoiler:being the source of the Marker signals in human space.]]
* HiddenInPlainSight: It's the moon of Tau Volantis, [[spoiler:so it's kind of hard to expect it would be the BigBad of the third numbered game.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Isaac repeatedly impales it with [[spoiler:the very Markers it used to control the Necromorphs.]]
* ItCanThink: It's certainly smart enough to manipulate people through [[spoiler:its own version of Marker visions]].
* MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: Before its death, [[spoiler:it sends out one final signal to reawaken the remaining Brethren Moons. At the end of the DLC, Isaac and Carver arrive at Earth just in time to see that the Moons are already there and are well on their way to devouring the planet.]]
* PlanetLooters: It's presumed that after finishing its own birth, [[spoiler:it would have roamed the galaxy, homing in on humanity's Marker signals and ''eating everyone''.]]
* SerialEscalation: The single largest boss and Necromorph encountered by far in the entire franchise.
* StarfishAliens: Sapient planetoid aliens, but still. [[spoiler:Also the justification for the AbsentAliens trope--the Brother Moons ''ate'' them.]]
* ThatsNoMoon: Appears to be a broken moon of Tau Volantis [[spoiler:when it's really a giant Necromorph whose birth is stalled.]]
* UltimateLifeForm: A post-Convergence, [[spoiler:size-of-a-moon ultimate Necromorph.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: As the final boss of ''Dead Space 3'', virtually all information about it is a spoiler.

* ImAHumanitarian: Low supplies and desperation led to some of the S.C.A.F trying to extend their resources by eating killed necromorphs. [[spoiler: Naturally, this backfired on them horribly, turning them into [[TechnicallyLivingZombies a new strain of necromorph]] nicknamed "the Feeders".]]

* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: The S.C.A.F staff foolish enough to eat infected flesh to stave off starvation started began to turn insane, violent and cannibalistic when they started to turn. Sam Ackerman had to run from his own comrades and trap them by disabling the elevator when they tried to kill and eat him.]] Fast forward 200 years later and it's a safe bet that there's nothing human about them mentally anymore.


Added DiffLines:

* FateWorseThanDeath: Unlike other Necromorphs with the exception of the Guardian, these poor bastards are '''still alive''' despite their utterly horrific state.
