Herbs - all possible combinations and their effects
Resident Evil 4, like the other games in the series, features three different types of healing herb, which can be combined in numerous ways. However, due to the removal of the Poison status from the game, the Blue herb is replaced by the Yellow. The chart below lists all possible combinations and the effects of herbs when used:
Green - Restores a small amount of health
Green + Green - Restores a large amount of health
Green + Green + Green - Fully restores health
Red - Cannot be used alone
Yellow - Cannot be used alone
Green + Red - Fully restores health
Green + Yellow - Restores a small amount of health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Green + Green + Yellow - Restores a large amount of health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Green + Red + Yellow - Fully restores health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Note - You cannot combine more than three herbs together at any one time. It is impossible to combine three Green herbs and a Yellow, for example.
Note 2 - Yellow herbs are useless when you have completely maxed out your health bars. However, there are precisely enough in the game to max out both yours and Ashley's health bars by the end of the game.
Note 3 - White Chicken Eggs restore a small amount of health, Brown Chicken Eggs restore a large amount of health and Gold Chicken Eggs fully restore health. Also, First Aid Sprays fully restore health.
