Crystal Demon (クリスタルデーモン, kurisutaru dēmon) is an enemy that first appeared in Bomberman Quest.
Gargoyle appears in Cave 4-2 (Map 6-D) in the Desert Zone. It flies aimlessly, throwing its scythe? Referred to as an "axe" (オノ) in the guidebook. at Bomberman. The initial throw of the scythe has a reach of about four squares. Once it reaches its maximum length, it will return to Crystal Demon like a boomerang. However, if the enemy happens to move out of the way, the scythe will miss, and will continue to circle around it until it is caught. Crystal Demon only has one scythe, so it must have it in its posession to be able to throw it. If Crystal Demon is hit by an explosion, the scythe will instantly return to it.
Because it is airborne, only Circle Bombs can damage it. The recommended strategy is to use the Power Glove to throw Homing Bombs at it. Crystal Demon has 6 HP and yields the Glasses upon defeat. Crystal Demon, its scythe, and the pool of lava in the center of the map all deal 1 HP of damage on collision.

Crystal Demon appears in the Sky Castle. It wanders aimlessly, often turning or reversing directions. It can pass over soft blocks. Periodically, Crystal Demon will disappear for a short time. When it reappears, it will throw a slow-moving sickle directly toward Bomberman; the sickle continues in a straight line, passing over everything, until it leaves the screen. Both Crystal Demon and its projectile deal 2 HP of base damage on contact. It has 1 HP.
Although Crystal Demon's name and design are unique to Bomberman, its behaviour pattern in Bomberman Tournament is similar to that of the "Demon" enemy in the earlier Hudson Soft game Neutopia II. Most of the enemy characters in Bomberman Tournament were derived from Neutopia II.
