Gobanz is the first boss in Castlevania: The Adventure, an armored hulking creature that wields a retractable club-like weapon. He advances slowly from one side of the screen, stopping every couple of steps to unleash his weapon for a ranged attack. His armor will reflect any fireballs shot from Christopher's whip (reflected fireballs are harmless to Christopher as well).
He makes a reappearance as a normal enemy in the last stage of the game.

- The Game Boy Nintendo Player's Guide simply refers to him as "The Giant".
- Gobanz is perhaps the same type of creature in armor as the Iron Doll from Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge.
