The Gravedigger is a boss encountered late in the game, in the Crematory Oven, and is the fifth-to-last boss. He is an important servant to the Necromancers, and has the task of bringing them their supply of undead by getting corpses into the crematory using his giant shovel. He also commands the corpses of the dead, as he summons these during battle.
Before he is fought, he raises a door to prevent Gabriel from reaching him, and Creeping Corpses sprout out of the ground and jump in some coffins which are scattered around the area. After they have been dealt with, the door is lowered and Gabriel can proceed to confront the Gravedigger himself. When defeated, he falls and attempts to bring Gabriel down with him with his tentacles, but fails.
The Gravedigger is very tall, appears to be partially made of stone, and wears a strange helmet over his head that can open and release a set of four tentacles. Whether or not these tentacles actually are his head or simply extruded from it, is unclear.
- The Gravedigger bares some resemblance to Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2, as both are very muscular and physically powerful, both carry large blades (Pyramid Head's Great Knife and Gravedigger's shovel), and both wear bizarre-looking helmets that house tentacles. Both games are published by Konami.
