Death Bat is the boss of Stage 3 in Castlevania: The Adventure and will confront Christopher at the top of the trap tower. Its appearance is that of a skeletal humanoid with the head of a bird or a pterosaur and a pair of bat-like wings affixed to its back. The creature is very similar to Slogra, making one wonder if both creatures share the same origins (Slogra, however, lacks wings).
It attacks by flying high in the chamber, out of the reach of Christopher's attacks, and then making swoops at him, trying to harm him with the claws on its legs. Surprisingly, this boss is very easy to defeat, only taking three strikes from a fully powered whip to bring it down.

- The original Japanese name for this creature is "Gobanz". However, in the American and European manuals many names were changed:
- In the American and European manuals, Gobanz is not referred as a boss.
- "Death Bat" is a mistranslation of "Death Bird".
