Gargoyle (ガーゴイル, gāgoiru) is an enemy that appears in multiple Bomberman games.
Gargoyle appears in Map 5-F in the Beach Zone. It wanders aimlessly, often stopping to perform a rush attack. When attacking, it first hops into the air, then performs a headbutt rush in a straight line in whichever direction it is facing. If it collides with a bomb, it will kick it, but it if collides with a wall, it will be momentarily shaken.
The recommended strategy is to stun it by throwing bombs with the Power Glove. Gargoyle has 5 HP and yields the Helmet upon defeat.
|If I win, I get to eat you! Are you sure you still want to fight me?|
|Sure--but I'm warning you: I don't taste good!|
Gargoyle appears in Plasma Base in the Snow Zone. It wanders randomly, flying while carrying a spear. While moving, it is invulnerable, and Bomberman can pass beneath it. Periodically, it will pause and thrust its spear downward, during which time it becomes vulnerable and dangerous. It deals 1.5 HP of base damage on contact and has 1 HP.
Gargoyle appears in Spook World. It moves quickly and aimlessly, often pausing on squares. If it encounters a bomb, it will fly up into the air, avoiding its blast. After landing, it will remain stationary for a while, during which time it is easier to hit. It has 1 HP and yields 800 points on defeat.
Gargoyle originally appeared in the earlier Hudson Soft game Neutopia II. It has a similar appearance to its Bomberman Tournament counterpart.
