Appearances
Various (see list below)

Gaibon is a gargoyle-like enemy who was first introduced as the second of the four final bosses in Super Castlevania IV. Since then he has been a regular enemy in the series, usually fighting alongside Slogra or appearing in a room near him.

Gaibon attacks by flying through the air, intermittently spitting fireballs down at the protagonist. 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 in his Dark Lord persona at the end of Julius Mode.

His skeleton can be seen in a background of the Skeleton Cave in Harmony of Dissonance.

AppearancesEdit

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 and throw him at the player for massive damage.

Gaibon should be killed second in this battle. However, when he begins dropping Slogra at the player, note that although Slogra is stretched out, the hit-box remains the same. Therefore, the player can be under Slogra's beak, neck or head when he lands, and don't take any damage unless they'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; Mortvia Aqueduct and Dracula's Castle are two places where he can be found. He attacks either by swooping down and slashing with his feet, firing a ripple laser from his mouth which has the ability to stun Hector, or using his grab attack, picking up and hitting him six times if you the player doesn't break free. This time around, Gaibon doesn't turn red to spit stronger fireballs like he did in other games. When the player encounters Gaibon, he can frequently be seen paired with Slogra, which is a dangerous combination; if they grab Hector, they will throw him into each other.
