This article is about the enemy type. For the characters with good souls, see Captured Farmers.
Now for our next enemy, the Hay Monster. Use your Small Sword against them as well when they come at you. Usually, there are at least two to three per haystack.

MediEvil: The Official Strategy Guide

Mad Farmers are enemies from MediEvil. They can be found in the Scarecrow Fields level. Their role is replaced by the Hay Monsters in MediEvil: Resurrection.


The farmers are undead that hide in haystacks. Upon Dan's approach toward a haystack, they jump out and attack him with their pitchforks. Slashing them with the Broad Sword is the easiest way to kill them.


  • In early versions of the game as seen in its promotional trailer, the farmers come out of wagons of hay instead of haystacks.
  • The farmers are called "Hay Monsters" in MediEvil's official strategy guide. This name shouldn't be confused with the enemies of the same name.
