  • A hiver party, 100 strong, takes its usual route along the undulating foothills, skirting the dreadful slimelands on the right, and the barren rocky uplands on the left. Beyond, the slope widens out into a valley in which water flows for much of the year, and where plants can grow and there are usually tubers or thick roots to be had. Before their narrow path widens the leader of the party grunts an order to halt. The seeker they carry with them is agitated, but is not telling them that there is food close by: it is telling them that others approach.
  • The Parasite (パラサイト Parasite?) is an armored insectoid species from Street Fighter 2010. Parasites are aggressive and have a carapace harder than ceramic.

  • In biology/ecology, parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host. Traditionally parasite (in biological usage) referred primarily to organisms visible to the naked eye, ormacroparasites (such as helminths). Parasite now includes microparasites, which are typically smaller, such as protozoa, viruses, and bacteria. Examples of parasites include the plants mistletoe and Cuscuta, and animals such as hookworms.
  • On Argelius II a non-corporeal entity that fed on fear assumed the form of one of the planet's inhabitants. It was later discovered the same entity had taken the form of "Jack the Ripper" in Terran history. The entity traveled between planets taking over host humanoid bodies. The entity then used the host body to murder women to feed on their fear. The entity took complete control of the body, making it harmful and the host was no longer conscious of its surroundings. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold" )
  • Les Floods également appelés les Parasites sont une espèce d'organismes virulents, des parasites qui se développent en 'consommant' d'autre formes de vie dotées de sentiments (comme la joie, la peur...), de calcium et d'une masse suffisante. Les Floods ont l'air d'être un essaim contrôlé par un même esprit, le Fossoyeur. On ne connaît presque rien de leur origine, mais il a été révélé que les Forunners les ont découvert et ont ensuite tenté de les éradiquer jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient submergés. Faisant face avec la menace des Parasites s'étendant partout dans l'univers et consommant chaque forme de vie, les Forunners ont alors construits et activés les Halos en tuant toute vie dans l'univers arrêtant ainsi l'expansion des Floods privés de "nourriture"'. Les Covenants trouvent dans les Halos
  • A parasite is a creature that invades a host and provides nothing to the host in return. The Goa'uld are parasites, in that they forcibly take control of their hosts. The host's consciousness remains intact but is forced into the subconscious. This experience is torterous for the host and is most evident when the host's consciousness emergies briefly. The Tok'ra are also parasitical in that they need hosts to live, but they are much more beneficial to their hosts, and only take willing hosts (in which case, the Tok'ra are more a mutualistic species than a parasitic species, as they benefit both themselves and their host).
  • Note: When the sun sets, PARASITE emerges from the shadows to stalk his Autobot prey! Uses hypnotic glare to subdue enemies so that he can get close enough for his diamond-tipped fang-drills to pierce their fuel lines and drain them of energon. Equipped with hypnographic projectors to terrify and confuse opponents. Despite his morbid and mystic nature, is suave and persuasive to ally and opponent alike. Transforms into an F-22 Raptor; capable of high-speed thrust-vectoring maneuvers and supersonic cruise. Avoids bright light; particularly vulnerable to photonic attack.
  • I say my respectful goodbyes to David, adjusting my pack of supplies, and shut the door behind me. It's a hot summer day in the middle of the desert state and the ash has finally let the sun through again. Other than being empty, the streets haven't changed at all. There are no signs of riots, no scorched buildings, no mangled bodies. Everything just happened too quickly. Sarah supposedly killed herself, but the way she did it wasn't released to the public. For the record, I hate the silence. It means that there are no animals. It means that there is nothing. There's never anything. INFECTION
  • A parasite, in biology, is a type of lifeform that depends on another being for sustenance and/or safety, with the other being gaining nothing in return, and possibly being harmed by the process. Different types of parasites usually evolve in differing ecosystems where resources or safety are being sought after by multiple organisms. Parasites can feed off other beings, or use them as transportation or the advancement of their life processes. A similar biological arrangement is symbiosis, but symbiosis is defined as two organisms that can mutually benefit from such an arrangement.

Parasites do almost no damage. At the beginning of Metroid Prime they are encountered in swarms, and explode upon contact, splattering their green blood on Samus' visor. They can impede vision because of this, but little else. Oddly, though they are repeatedly stated to be indigenous to Tallon IV, the normal variant are never found once Samus makes planetfall in Metroid Prime. Parasites also appear in Metroid Prime Pinball (where they appear on the Tallon Overworld pinball stage), albeit heavily redesigned for an unknown reason, along with the mini-game Parasite Purge. They are present in the first part of M06: Infiltration and M15: Mother Lode in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. In the latter mission, they spawn from a destructible hive. Parasite Queens are the largest known variant, seen on Frigate Orpheon in Metroid Prime and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. These creatures were created by the Pirates with Phazon. Similar-looking corpses can be seen on Elysia's Xenoresearch, suggesting that the Pirates were still attempting to make use of them after the Frigate Orpheon incident. Parasites hatch from eggs.

  • Les Floods également appelés les Parasites sont une espèce d'organismes virulents, des parasites qui se développent en 'consommant' d'autre formes de vie dotées de sentiments (comme la joie, la peur...), de calcium et d'une masse suffisante. Les Floods ont l'air d'être un essaim contrôlé par un même esprit, le Fossoyeur. On ne connaît presque rien de leur origine, mais il a été révélé que les Forunners les ont découvert et ont ensuite tenté de les éradiquer jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient submergés. Faisant face avec la menace des Parasites s'étendant partout dans l'univers et consommant chaque forme de vie, les Forunners ont alors construits et activés les Halos en tuant toute vie dans l'univers arrêtant ainsi l'expansion des Floods privés de "nourriture"'. Les Covenants trouvent dans les Halos une grande signification religieuse. Les Floods ont été "enfermés" par les Forunners sur Halo dans le but de les observer et de les contenir. Bien que leur intention était d'éliminer les Parasites en détruisant sur Halo toute forme de vie existante, dans le premier volet de Halo, Halo : Combat Elvoved, nous découvrons que leur plan a échoué. Dans La Bibliothèque, 343 Guilty Spark avoue que après l'activation d'Halo, les Floods ont été conservés sur l'anneau afin de les étudier.

  • The Parasite (パラサイト Parasite?) is an armored insectoid species from Street Fighter 2010. Parasites are aggressive and have a carapace harder than ceramic. They can assimilate a host to control it, also greatly increasing its power. In order to stop those powerful parasites, the Galaxy Police sends the cyborg Kevin Straker to destroy them. In the English version, Parasites were changed into Cyboplasm, a substance discovered by 'Ken' and Troy. When properly administered, Cyboplasm could make a person several times stronger than normal, helping to keep people alive in other planets. But in large doses, it comes alive and takes over the body and mind of its host, turning them into violent, mindless super beings. One day, Troy was killed and the Cyboplasm formula was stolen, being misused and spreading chaos in several planets.

It seems to be weak to Aglaophotis, which is shown to completely reverse the parasite's effects on Puppet Cybil Bennett. It is also implied that Aglaophotis is also made from White Claudia, suggesting White Claudia may be the ingredient which attacks the parasite.[1] PTV is produced from White Claudia as well, which may be the reason Lisa didn't transform as soon as her co-workers.

  • Several parasites can be seen in tubes in Lazarus Labs.
  • Whether the quadruped configuration is the natural state of this species is a subject of debate, as their facial features would suggest a humanoid origin.
  • A parasite is a creature that invades a host and provides nothing to the host in return. The Goa'uld are parasites, in that they forcibly take control of their hosts. The host's consciousness remains intact but is forced into the subconscious. This experience is torterous for the host and is most evident when the host's consciousness emergies briefly. The Tok'ra are also parasitical in that they need hosts to live, but they are much more beneficial to their hosts, and only take willing hosts (in which case, the Tok'ra are more a mutualistic species than a parasitic species, as they benefit both themselves and their host). A parasite exists in the Pegasus galaxy that attaches itself to the brain and causes what is known as "Second Childhood". It takes only a few weeks to grow exponentially in size, and is usually fatal to the host. However, ionized radiation, discovered at the Shrine of Talus, is harmful to the parasite. It will instinctually shrink into itself and detach itself from the brain in order to protect itself from the radiation, at which time it can safely be surgically removed from the brain of the host. (SGA: "The Shrine")

  • In biology/ecology, parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host. Traditionally parasite (in biological usage) referred primarily to organisms visible to the naked eye, ormacroparasites (such as helminths). Parasite now includes microparasites, which are typically smaller, such as protozoa, viruses, and bacteria. Examples of parasites include the plants mistletoe and Cuscuta, and animals such as hookworms. Unlike predators, parasites typically do not kill their host, are generally much smaller than their host, and will often live in or on their host for an extended period. Both are special cases of consumer-resource interactions. Parasites show a high degree of specialization, and reproduce at a faster rate than their hosts. Classic examples of parasitism include interactions between vertebrate hosts andtapeworms, flukes, the Plasmodium species, and fleas. Parasitism differs from the parasitism relationship in that parasite generally kill their hosts. Parasites reduce host biological fitness by general or specialized pathology, such as parasitic castration and impairment of secondary sex characteristics, to the modification of host behavior. Parasites increase their own fitness by exploiting hosts for resources necessary for their survival, e.g. food, water, heat, habitat, and transmission. Although parasitism applies unambiguously to many cases, it is part of a continuum of types of interactions between species, rather than an exclusive category. In many cases, it is difficult to demonstrate harm to the host. In others, there may be no apparent specialization on the part of the parasite, or the interaction between the organisms may remain short-lived.
  • On Argelius II a non-corporeal entity that fed on fear assumed the form of one of the planet's inhabitants. It was later discovered the same entity had taken the form of "Jack the Ripper" in Terran history. The entity traveled between planets taking over host humanoid bodies. The entity then used the host body to murder women to feed on their fear. The entity took complete control of the body, making it harmful and the host was no longer conscious of its surroundings. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold" ) During a scan of Aldean DNA, Doctor Beverly Crusher was able to confirm that parasitic organisms were not responsible for the Aldeans' sterility. (TNG: "When The Bough Breaks" ) The parasitic beings that invaded Starfleet Command were another type of parasite. Officers of Starfleet were taken over by neural parasites that attached themselves to the spinal cord and brain of the host. The host was left unable to control his own actions, and in the case of the Queen parasite, the host's body was left destroyed when the Queen exited. (TNG: "Conspiracy" ) In 2377, B'Elanna Torres fainted while in engineering. Icheb scanned her with a medical tricorder and detected a lifeform inside her. He quickly believed it to be a parasite. Seven of Nine then did her own scan and found she was actually pregnant with her first child.

  • I say my respectful goodbyes to David, adjusting my pack of supplies, and shut the door behind me. It's a hot summer day in the middle of the desert state and the ash has finally let the sun through again. Other than being empty, the streets haven't changed at all. There are no signs of riots, no scorched buildings, no mangled bodies. Everything just happened too quickly. It is six-and-a-half miles from David's hideout to mine and I make it there in twenty-six minutes. The seven-speed does just fine over the uneven ground, even though there is a large bubble in the tire. The sun beats on my neck, but the wind in my face is cool enough to stop me from complaining. Surprise was a small city in Arizona. It was founded in 1938 by Homer Ludden and he named it after his hometown in Nebraska. There were no riots or fires like the larger cities, but once the infection hit, it spread like wildfire. Nearly all of Surprise was infected before Patient Zero started losing it. Patient Zero was all over the news, the first victim of a brain parasite. Her name was Sarah Thompson and she begged on live cameras to be killed. Sarah, in the last few days of her life, reportedly pulled most of her hair out and skinned her arms with her fingernails. Some of them were lost in her flesh, but she was completely silent until the last five minutes of her life, when she started screaming quotes from books and detailing childhood memories. Sarah supposedly killed herself, but the way she did it wasn't released to the public. The house I've taken refuge in means nothing to me. I never lived here. I never knew the person who lived here, although from the pictures I can see that they were a family. There are no traces of them leaving, nothing missing. It's as if I woke up and was the last person on earth. Once upon a time I was a devout Christian, so this couldn't be the Rapture. They can't open doors, so after I slam the door shut behind me it's useless to rush to the lock. Through the window, in the daylight, I can see that nothing followed me anyway. When I turn around to examine the house, I feel safe. I've stripped away some of the carpet to safely build a fire, and I've made a hole in the ceiling for both ventilation and quick escape. Water bottles and jugs have been gathered from the stores and other locations, and my food stock is nothing to worry about. There's a reason David and I live so far away from one another. We both have resources, we both have adequate shelter, and we don't trust each other in the least. Greed is human nature, and we've accepted its existence. We try to hold on to things like greed. David and I met at gunpoint in an abandoned Target a few seasons ago. We helped one another for as long as we could stand, but eventually our eyes began to covet and our empty hands began to hunger and thirst. Those days are known as The Fall - the three years when humanity died more than humans. Again, there's a reason why we try to hold on to things like greed. Those things are our legacy, our nature. It's ironic, but things like wanting are all we have left. I set the backpack down on the ground near my sleeping bag. My body is covered in a thick layer of dry sweat and grime, and my shirt stings my nostrils when I pull it off and over my head. Doing my best to get comfortable on the treated carpet, I close my eyes and listen to the silence. For the record, I hate the silence. It means that there are no animals. It means that there is nothing. There's never anything. Birdsong wakes me in the night. According to my watch, it is three. The house is pitch black and I feel a draft. A door or a window is open and I instinctively run for the rope that will deliver me to the attic. I hear shuffling that is not my own and I climb fast. The shuffling comes closer until stopping right under me and I feel a very light swipe at the bottom of my shoe. There is a flashlight and a handgun in the attic in addition to those I keep next to me when I sleep, and I reach for the flashlight. Shining it below me, I illuminate the face of the intruder. Her face is very pale and there are almost no signs of decay. The meat on her arms has been slashed and lacerated; it is the same with her legs. She has no shirt on and blood has splattered the chest that rises and falls as she struggles to breathe. Her eyes were gray, lifeless, and her head cocked to the side while we examined one another. Her arms reached up to me and her fingers bent like a baby's, so I cocked the gun in response. Her mouth opened and she tried to snap at me. I extended my arm and her fingers grew more coordinated. A low growling appeared in her throat and rose to a loud wailing. She began trashing at me and jumping up and down, screaming inaudibly and snapping her jaw. The first shot struck her shoulder and drew no blood. She paid no mind, but when the second shot struck her forehead she fell limp to the ground and laid there. Silence returned to me and it was rushed along by the birdsong a few seconds later. I couldn't move until I felt the sun's warmth, and I pushed myself up and off the dusty ground to climb slowly back down. Flood detected my ass. She had somehow pried the unlocked sliding glass door open and made her way in. Some of the water bottles had been emptied onto the carpet. Most of my food except for the canned items had been opened and devoured or strewn about. I gathered my essentials and moved onto the house next door, a two story. The parasite makes them like cows, I've noticed. Cows mourn their dead. If a cow is buried on a hill, the other cows will make sure to avoid that hill. One of the safest places to be in the Post-Fall is right next to a body. So long as you don't disturb it and let it rot, the cows will make sure to avoid it. The infection isn't like it is in movies. The parasite is found in your fecal matter and can be transmitted through the air. While the infected feel no pain, they are still human. Enough shots to any point on the body will kill an infected individual. I've never seen one as it eats, fortunately, but I've been hunted by them; they're clever and persistent. The bubble has grown a quarter in size. The sun once again beats on my neck as I ride to David's house, and there is no breeze. The streets are still empty and the ash is still falling like snow. According to the news, the ash is from an entirely different continent. Somewhere in Asia, they just nuked everything. Sometimes I think something like that would have saved me a lot of trouble. David is dead when I force the door open. I shut it quickly behind me and watch him lay still on the carpet, covered in his own blood, and I let out a heavy sigh. No maggots have found their way into his collapsed skull, but I suppose it's only a matter of time. I watch him out of the corner of my eye while I reach into his fridge and remove a water bottle; to my pleasure, he seems to twitch only slightly. I send a quick kick to his head and it rolls on the ground, connected limply to his neck. His eyes are in the back of his head and he is still dead. I frown. I drink. I swallow and pour some of the water on his head, smirking. Again, as if it has become my addiction, I trace my fingers along his writings on the wall. I can hear his voice screaming at me while I whisper the desperate phrases and I lose my mind as I investigate how he lost his. INFECTION attacks the brain what the fuck is a HOT ZONE? I'm not sick I'M NOT SICK T.V. IS OUT, FIND RADIO The charcoal rubs off on my fingers and I wipe it on my pants. David's body is completely still as I heave another sigh and take a long drink of the water. Gathering some canned foods and a few bags of potato chips, I say goodbye to David again and head out the door, shutting it behind me. The tire blows out halfway home and my mind immediately begins to race. The tire's failing - although it wasn't the loudest sound one could make - was in sharp contrast to the silence of a summer day. I drew my gun, scanned the horizons, and crouched to see if I couldn't repair the tire. I use a knife to take the tube out. I've tied a roll of masking tape to the bike's frame and I use the last of it as an improvised patch. Footsteps come from behind me and I turn to see one of them charging at me, its mouth agape and its eyes empty. I fired four shots into its chest and watched it fall, then rushed my bike and tube over to its body. More came out of the woodwork, but they would not approach their fallen kin. I replaced the tube and pumped it with a small pump I retrieved from my bag. They all have their mouths open, snapping at me but not moving any other part of their bodies. Their eyes are empty and they all hum quiet and low. The tire is fixed and I flip the bike right-side up. My gun drawn, I take aim at one of them. A single round to the head drops and it lays motionless. I take aim at another, clearing a route for my escape. The shot misses and my heartbeat quickens even more. Another shot hits its chest and I curse loudly. Their humming grows louder and I'm suddenly aware of how much I'm sweating. Another shot kills it and I aim for a third. I miss again and scream at it when the gun reports that it is out of ammo. The humming becomes a sort of yelling and I throw the gun down into the dirt. The bike's seat is warm when I sit on it and I pedal hard toward the survivor. They all begin to wail like the girl did and I pedal faster. I'm pulled from my bike on contact, but I hit the ground, stumble, and start sprinting away. I hear teeth snapping behind me and their wailing becomes a screech. I'm just over three miles away from shelter and my legs become loose and weak. My lungs burn and it becomes hard to breathe. I feel a hand tug at my bag and I gain renewed vigor. My legs move faster and my arms pump harder but the adrenaline only lasts for a few seconds. Two hands tug at my bag and I throw it off, stumbling again. More hands reach for my shirt and I draw my knife. I turn around to be tackled onto the ground, but they all freeze when I cut one's throat. Its body falls on mine but doesn't bleed. I lay there, looking up at them as they stand with their mouths open, catching my breath. The night comes and the cool breeze has returned. It is silent. They still stand around me and I haven't moved. I slowly begin to push its body off of mine and they stand still. Rising slowly and cautiously to my feet, they don't sway at all. Their breaths pierce the silence; they are slow and deep. They're sleeping. My legs are running before I can tell them to. I run through the empty streets and hear nothing behind me. The door swings open in front of me and I am under shelter. I slam it shut and lose my balance, falling on my side. Heat and exhaustion force me to vomit. I wipe at my mouth and retch a few times more. The house is silent and the air is still. I hear no birdsong. I hear nothing but my own dry heaving. My legs barely move. I've gotten little rest and exhausted myself. Looking around for water, I find my lips are dry. I drink. I choke. I vomit again. My arm itches. My fingers run up and down desperately before I can tell myself to stop, before I can tell myself that I'm okay. Soon my mind isn't comforting enough and I have to speak out loud. It's calming to hear that I still sound human. It's calming to hear someone's voice. But soon, even my voice isn't reassuring enough. I have to see my words, to run my fingers over them as I whisper them to myself. I search the house for some sort of writing tool and settle for a pen. The doors are all wooden and painted white, so they seem a beautiful place to start. I'M NOT SICK I'M NOT SICK PLEASE, GOD, I'M NOT SICK David is just sleeping I'm not SICK it's safe here it's safe everywhere SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING SOMEBODY TELL ME I'M OKAY I stop to scratch furiously at my arm. It inflames the itch instead of extinguishing it. I scratch harder, faster. Blood is drawn. I try to keep writing while clawing at myself as well. WAKE UP DAVID WAKE UP DAVID How did I get this way? No one else No one else exists I AM THE LAST ONE I AM NOT INFECTED THE PARASITE IS DEAD IT IS NOT INSIDE OF ME I run out of room on the door and scream with frustration. My second gun is by my sleeping bag, laying on the ground with no one to hold it. I pick it up and cock it, screaming into the barrel. My finger pulls the trigger. Click. I curse loudly and start clawing at my neck. I feel a fingernail break off and the sound excites me. I pull the trigger again and again, slouching down against the wall. My finger pulls the trigger. Click. My finger pulls the trigger. Click. My finger pulls the trigger. A draft enters the room.
  • A hiver party, 100 strong, takes its usual route along the undulating foothills, skirting the dreadful slimelands on the right, and the barren rocky uplands on the left. Beyond, the slope widens out into a valley in which water flows for much of the year, and where plants can grow and there are usually tubers or thick roots to be had. Before their narrow path widens the leader of the party grunts an order to halt. The seeker they carry with them is agitated, but is not telling them that there is food close by: it is telling them that others approach. With another grunt the leader calls the warriors together in a protective wall; but they need not have worried. Those who approach pose no threat. It is full day now, and the party can see five or six shambling creatures moving down the rocky slope towards the slimelands. The bodies are bulky (very bulky for the size of their legs) with thick hummocks and rolls of fat seeming to engulf them. Dull faces look out from the folds of pale flesh. In the dim light, however, the parasites are just visible: tiny and spiderlike, four or five of them are embedded in the deep fat of each figure, their faces buried and unseen, feeding continually from the creature's surplus. No threat to the hive, and so of no interest to the party; but the leader does recollect that more and more of them are seen now adays wandering over their domain. They seem to be spreading from the forest areas that are their home. Dimly the leader wonders what they find to eat here, and how they protect themselves from the harsh Sun. He does not wonder for long, however. With a backhanded gesture, he brushes the first of the day's sand out of his moustache and signals for the party to move onwards. Soon he has the party on the move once more and the strangers have been completely forgotten. Had the party stayed to watch, they would have observed the lumbering creatures scramble down into the flats of the slimelands and wade out amongst the disgusting blue-green sogginess. Dumbly they scoop up handfuls of the slime, exposing the yellow stench beneath, and begin to feed on it. The parasites embedded in their fat ignore all this. The food, be it nuts, leaves or slime, will be converted into huge deposits of fat and tissue that will sustain them. The parasites and their hosts are not the first communal creatures to arise since the days of the engineers, but they are some of the only surviving types. The hunter symbionts and the symbiont carriers, in which the temperate woodland-dwellers teamed up with the tundra-dwellers to live on the cold plains, are extinct now. They took to the mountains after the cold tundra plains faded away, and there they existed for some time; but they were never really developed as mountain creatures, and all kinds of maladaptations began to show themselves. Eventually the populations dwindled and the whole two species died out. That is not the case amongst the parasites and their hosts. The hosts, too, are descended from the tundra-dwellers, but unlike the symbiont carriers they changed as the conditions changed. Gone are the woolly coats and the resistance to extreme cold, but they still retain the thick deposits of fat. Indeed their metabolism generates more fat than they could possibly need, and that is what sustains the parasites. The energy and raw materials for all this production comes from the constant consumption of plants - any kind of plants and similar organisms, including the blue-green algal cultures that the aquatics developed as their own food source and spread over the lowland areas of the globe, turning them into the foul slimelands so despised by most of the land-living creatures. It is not only the hivers that ignore the parasites and their hosts as they wade into the featureless slippery mat. Also ignoring them are the aquatics, not far away, looping and slithering about in the moist yellow depths below the slime crust. They are grazing their way through the algal culture that their ancestors established ages ago on the lowlands above the surface of the ocean. There is plenty of food for them now, not like in the days of want. They know very well that some creatures from the land come and steal from the edges, but the losses are small. The only trouble is dehydration. If the algal covering is breached there may be a considerable water loss before it has a chance to grow again; but with all the world's lowlands covered in the self-sustaining food-generator there is little to worry about.
