Severed Hands are zombie hands that can be found in each of the MediEvil games.
The hands cannot be smashed at all, but can be used for the Dan-hand ability instead.
According to Tom Saunter, Severed Hands used to deal damage. He compared them to low level enemies, such as the Goombas from the Super Mario series. He attributes the removal of this to himself.

They had basic AI to follow Sir Dan and would pop up rather too often which was a massive pain. And they leached health like nobody's business despite no actual attack power, so really it [removing them] was my duty to the players!" — Tom Saunter on Facebook.
