The Death Bat is a boss in Castlevania: The Adventure.


The Death Bat is the boss of Stage 3 in Castlevania: The Adventure and will challenge 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 similar to Slogra, raising the question if both creatures share the same origins.

It attacks by flying high up in the chamber where it is fought and out of the reach of Christopher's whip, and then making swoops at him, trying to rip him apart with its claws. It is not very resilient, though, and can be defeated with only three strikes from a fully powered whip.

  • The original Japanese name for this creature is "Gobanz". However, in the American and European instruction booklets many names were changed:
    • Gobanz was renamed to "Death Bat".
    • Night Stalker was renamed to "Zeldo".
    • Zeldo was renamed to "Gobanz".
  • In the American and European instruction booklets, Gobanz is not referred as a boss.
  • The first boss in Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is a blend of the Death Bat and the Phantom Bat, although it lost most of its non-bat characteristics and also turns into a swarm of bats when struck. It maintained the original Death Bat's protruding rib cage, however.
  • "Death Bat" is a mistranslation of "Death Bird".
