There are so many types of enemies in RE4, and each have to be taken care of 
differently.  I'll start with the most common, getting into the more complicated 
and rarer ones, and eventually and possibly talking about the bosses.

************************************************************************************
1.Los Gandos

A.They Attack:
By grabbing.  But they have horrible aim.  You don't really have to worry about 
them.  If they do get ahold of you, use the control stick to shake 'em off.

B.You find them:
Just about everywhere in the Village.  They're the most common and easiest enemies.

C.What to use:
Shoot them with a handgun until they bend over, then kick them, and then knife them 
to save a whole lot of ammunition.
Or, if they're in a big group, a couple of shotgun blasts should do the trick.

D.Rarity:  ...
************************************************************************************
2.Chainsaw Maniacs

A.They Attack:
At a next-to-you range.  But don't let 'em get that close.  They have one-hit kill 
weapons, so scout them out first.

B.You find them:
Once or twice throughout the Village.  So you don't have to worry about them 
popping up around every corner.

C.What to use:
Blow them away with a shotgun.  If you have to reload, try another weapon or reload 
and pray you don't get your head sawed off.

D.Rarity:  !!
************************************************************************************
3.The Groups

A.They Attack:
In various ways.  It's a mix of all the common people and some different ones 
thrown in together.

B.You find them:
At key plot points.  All you can really do is kill until something happens.

C.What to use:
A shotgun and incandecinary grenades.  If you need to reload, that's your time to 
throw a grenade and buy some time.

D.Rarity:  !!!
************************************************************************************
4.Farmers

A.They Attack:
With pitchforks, and they're hands, at a close range.  They're like the Los Gandos, 
but a little tougher.

B.You find them:
At the Farm.  After that they kind of get mixed on with the Los Gandos.

C.What to use:
The handgun.  It'll save a lot of valuable shotgun ammo, which you need for the 
upcoming Los Gandos.

Rarity:  ...
************************************************************************************
5.Dynamite

A.They Attack:
By throwing dynamite.  They have horrible aim, though, so they usually end up 
blowing themselves, and everyone else around them, up.

B.You find them:  
At the start of the Bridges area, and scattered around in other various places.

C.What to use:
A couple of handgun blows should do the trick.

Rarity:  ?
************************************************************************************
6.El Giagante

A.They Attack:
By throwing stuff at you, and trying to grab you.  When they pick up a tree, get 
ready to press L+R to dodge the attack.

B.You find them:
In the the big Arena area, near a merchant, and on the Right Path of the Two Paths 
area.

C.What to use:
A TMP at first to attack.  It's quick to fire and reload, a good weapon-of-choice.  
Then, when the virus comes out of his back, climb up on him and slash it with your 
knife (go near him, press A, then press A, B, or X really fast).

D:  !!!
************************************************************************************
7.The Fish

A.It Attacks:
By trying to pull you into rocks and eat you (eating is NOT a one-hit kill, so 
chill...).

B.You find It:
In the giant Lake.  Take a boat and drive out near the penninsula to start the 
battle.

C.What to use:
The unlimited supply of harpoons that they give you.

D:  !!!
************************************************************************************
8.The Big Cheese

A.He Attacks:
By trying to grab you and scratch you.

B.You find him:
After you've rescued AShley in an old warehouse.

C.What to use:
The TMP.  Once again, it's because of it's quick shooting and reloading.
************************************************************************************
8A.The Big Cheese-Part 2

A.He Attacks:
By throwing himself at you.

B.You find him:
Same place as where the first place was.

C.What to use:
Anything that works for you.  There's no real strategy for this fight.

D.Rarity:  !!!
************************************************************************************
9.The Hoodies

A.They Attack:
Similar to the Los Ganados:  trying to grab you.

B.You find them:
Pretty much anywhere fights are taking place.

C.What to use:
A handgun to single 'em out, and a shotgun to break them up.

D.Rarity:  ...
************************************************************************************
10.Mace-Swingers

A.They Attack:
By swinging they're maces around.  They'll keep them down until they get into a 
couple yards range of you, though.

B.You find them:
Mixed in with all the other people.

C.What to use:
Anything you choose.

D.Rarity:  ?
************************************************************************************
11.Red Cloaked

A.They attack:
By either trying to grab you or swinging maces.

B.You find them:
About once per area, them being the leader of the group.

C.What to use:
A shotgun, and just keep hitting them fast and hard.

D.Rarity:  !!
************************************************************************************
12.The Deer-Skull Men

A.They Attack:
With either their hands or rocket-launchers.

B.You find them:
Where you would normaly find red-cloaked guys, but these Deer-heads are rarer.

C.What to use:
Same as the Red-Cloaked guys-a shotgun.

D.Rarity:  !!
************************************************************************************
13.Rocket Launchers

A.They Attack:
With (WHAT ELSE?) rocket launchers.  Rocket launchers are single-fire weapons that 
go out with a big bang.

B.You find them:
About one in every group.

C.What to use:
A handgun should work, because once they use the launcher, they have no other 
weapons.

D.Rarity:  !
************************************************************************************
14.Archers

A.They Attack:
With fast-firing cross-bows.  Take advantage of their long-range weakness by 
getting near them before firing.

B.You find them:
Scattered in the groups.

C.What to use:
A handgun.

D.Rarity:  ?
************************************************************************************
15.Catapults

A.They Attack:
With flaming rocks launched from the catapults.

B.You find them:
In areas with a bunch of towers.

C.What to use:
A rifle, but take out the actual guys manning the catapults.  You can't even 
scratch the catapults, so don't bother.

D.Rarity:  !
************************************************************************************
16.Berserkers

A.They Attack:
With expandable claws and run around when they hear you.

B.You find them:
In the prison, among other places.

C.What to use:
A weapon of choice.  But you have to attack the exposed virus on their backs.

D.Rarity:  !!
************************************************************************************
17.Viruses

A.They Attack:
By trying to hit you or eat your head.

B.You find them:
Growing out of decapitated-people's heads.

C.What to use:
A shotgun, but aim for where it's connected at the neck.  That's its weak point.
