Yellow Herbs have only been featured a few times in the Resident Evil series. Like all other herbs, they have health-regaining abilities. They are very important to find throughout Resident Evil 4 because they increase the player's maximum health.

Resident Evil Gaiden

The yellow herb actually first appears in this title. Yellow herbs will heal about half your character's health.

The yellow herb works as the G+G (Green plus green) combination from previous games.

Resident Evil 4

Yellow Herbs provide either Leon, Ashley or Ada with an increase to their maximum health. However, they are only usable in mixtures with Green Herbs (G+Y) or with Green and Red Herbs (G+R+Y).

Each Yellow Herb used by Leon or Ada increases their health by 1/4 of a bar. Leon can completely maximize his health after using 20 herbs. Each herb given to Ashley increases her health by one whole bar and she only needs 5 to maximize her health. However, she still has much less than Leon and Ada.

Like all other herbs, they only take up a 1x2 area in the attache case. To save space, you should mix them with green and/or red herbs as soon as possible.
