The Hippogryph is a legendary creature which resembles a winged horse with the head and upper body of an eagle. The hippogryph is closely related to the griffin.
The Hippogriff is a mythological creature that is born from the crossing between a griffin and a mare. Their head, wings, chest and front legs are like those of an eagle, inherited characteristics of the father, and the rest of the body is like that of a horse, like the mother. Since the griffin is usually depicted as a creature which detested horses, hunting and killing them, it can be difficult to imagine how a hippogryph could be conceived.
There is one Hippogryph in Symphony of the Night, appearing as a boss in the Royal Chapel. It has three methods of attack:
- The hippogryph can fly around the room, occasionally stopping to swoop into Alucard.
- It can draw in energy in order to spit it back out as a jet of flame.
- It can lay eggs, which hatch into little baby Hippogryphs.
The Hipogriff appears as a regular enemy in Circle of the Moon.
The Hippogryph appears in Aria of Sorrow as an ability soul. It is found in a hidden room inside the Top Floor and allows Soma to do a high jump by pressing ↑ and the L button on the ground, or by pressing the L button in mid-air. If you hit the ceiling, Soma will flinch in a comical fashion.
The Hippogryph soul also appears in Dawn of Sorrow, granting the same ability to high jump like it did in Aria. It is found in the first sandy room of the Abyss. If you hit the ceiling, Soma will stick to it for a second before falling again.
