The Graverobber is a Necromorph that was supposed to appear in the short animated film Dead Space: Downfall, but was finally cut most likely due to time constraints. 


The Graverobber has a bear-like stance and possesses three jawless heads and pincers. The creature's entire upper torso is composed of dead bodies, most of which have been visually absorbed partway into the creature's flesh. Among these corpses are the remains of Ramirez, Samuel Irons and Heather. It also has large, Slasher-like blades, the right blade was obviously formed from a Slasher that was melded into it, or simply a grossly mutated human body.

As mentioned above, the Graverobber has three large heads fused to each other. A long, fleshy tongue comes out of the central head, while two giant mandibles or tusks comes out of the heads on the sides. The body of a Graverobber is similar to a Brute in that it has several armor-plated regions on its body, forming a ribcage-like pattern along the length of its torso. 

This Necromorph would find dead bodies and devour them within seconds, probably adding them to its biomass this way.


  • In Dead Space: Downfall, Slashers are seen piling up bodies in the mess hall. It is speculated that this is how the Graverobber was created.
  • Originally, it would have pursued Alissa Vincent until getting smashed by the Ishimura's centrifuge. This is likely how the centrifuge malfunctioned before the arrival of Isaac Clarke. If this is the case, then it is still unclear whether the creature is still alive or not, as no dead Graverobbers can be seen in the centrifuge chamber when Isaac came down to fix it.
    • The centrifuge can be observed leading into the vacuum of space when functional, so it might have been flushed out into space when the centrifuge hit it.
