OverviewEdit

Gaibon is a gargoyle-like enemy who appears in Super Castlevania IV, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. His skeleton appears in the background in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. Gaibon attacks by flying through the air, intermittently spitting fireballs down at the hero. In Super Castlevania IV, he can also land and knock stalactites down from the ceiling. Upon taking damage, he turns red and begins firing bigger and more powerful blasts of fire, as well as moving in different patterns. His soul in Dawn of Sorrow allows a Gaibon familiar to follow Soma and attack with him, and is also used by Soma at the end of Julius Mode. Gaibon is always seen paired with Slogra or in a room near him, perhaps from their initial appearance as two of the final four bosses in Super Castlevania IV.

Game Specific InformationEdit

Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

Gaibon is the first boss battle of the game. After that, he is a randomly encountered enemy. During the boss battle he teams up with Slogra. He spits fireballs at the enemy while Slogra impales them with his spear. If he gets low on health, Gaibon turns red and starts to spit larger fireballs. He will also step on the ground to shoot even more projectiles at the player. However, if the player breaks Slogra's spear first, Gaibon will start to grab Slogra throwing him at the player for massive damage.

Gaibon should be killed second in this battle. However, when he begins throwing Slogra at the player, note that although Slogra is stretched out, the hit-box remains the same. Therefore, you could be under Slogra's beak, neck or head when he lands, but you won't take any damage unless you're actually under him, the same as if he'd been holding his spear.

Castlevania: Curse of DarknessEdit

Gaibon can be found in several places, the Mortvia Aqueduct and Dracula's Castle are two places where he can be found. He attacks by either swooping down and slashing with his feet, firing a ripple laser from his mouth which has the ability to stun you, or using his grab attack: picking you up and hitting you six times if you don't break free. This time around Gaibon doesn't turn red and then spits stronger fireballs like he did in other games. When you find Gaibon he is almost always paired with Slogra, watch out as this is a dangerous combination, if they grab you they will literally throw you into each other.
