Catoblepas is a legendary creature from Ethiopia said to have the body of an ox and the head of a wild boar. In Castlevania, it is similar to the Gorgon (indeed, in Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin it is actually a direct re-use of the Gorgon sprite from Symphony of the Night), and breaths out petrifying gas.

Game-Specific InformationEdit

Castlevania: Circle of the MoonEdit

Catoblepas appear in the Observation Tower and Battle Arena. In this game Catoblepas look like a gray ox that of stopping to breath a petrifying gas it releases a low-hanging cloud of petrifying gas that travels a few step from the beast.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

Catoblepas appear in the study. It attacks by breathing petrifying gas, and their appearance is closer to a rhinoceros than an ox. A catoblepas' soul allows Soma to release a continous cloud of petrifying gas from his hand.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

Catoblepas appears few times in the Garden of Madness. They are very slow, so killing them is not a big deal.

Their soul allows Soma to create clouds of petrifying gas, which can turn to stone many enemies, and allows Soma to do +50% damage if the target actually turned to stone.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

Similar to Dawn of Sorrow. They appear in Sandy Grave.
