Plant 42

In the 2002 remake, Plant 42 boasts a total HP of 3000-3800 at the start of the boss fight (compared with Chris' and Jill's 1400 and 960, respectively). After re-growing, the Plant will regain 1600-2000 HP. The Plant's tentacles have individual hitpoint values of 200-550, but their HP will only drop after the main body has taken a set minimum damage (900 for the first round; 450 for the second). The number of tentacles lso drops from seven to five after the regrowth.[1]
