Lilith is one of the many lady bats who have appeared in the Castlevania series. In Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, she and her daughter, Lilim,[1] are demons resembling beautiful women with wings. She attacks by generating several rings imbued in darkness that spin around her and which she can hurl at the player. She can fly all over the screen with great speed and mobility.

Since Aria of Sorrow and subsequent titles, she remains hovering at ground level. When attacked, she sometimes dodges backward and retaliates either by sending out a kiss that curses the player or by lunging forward to hug them and feast on their blood.


Lilith - 01

Lilith by John Collier (1892).

According to ancient Jewish texts, Lilith was Adam's first wife. Lilith considered herself equal to Adam, as they were both created from dust. After Lilith refused to lie beneath him while having intercourse, she cursed him and departed toward the Red Sea. Adam complained to God regarding Lilith and God sent three angels to retrieve her. When the angels found Lilith by the sea, they commanded her to return with them under the threat that she would lose a hundred of her demonic children by death if she refused. Lilith replied that she preferred that punishment to living with Adam. After this incident, Lilith took her revenge by injuring babies.

Lilith is mentioned briefly in metaphor in the Book of Psalms.

She is also based on an ancient night spirit named Lilitu, who is referred as "Queen of the Night".


Castlevania: Circle of the MoonEdit

Lilith appears in a hidden room of the Underground Warehouse only after defeating Camilla. Reigning supreme over all lady bats, she can deal devastating amounts of damage in just a few hits, making her one of the most dangerous regular enemies in the game. However, it must be noted that she yields a whooping 20,000 EXP points per kill and also drops the extremely valuable Sage Robe (DEF +250, INT +500), so she is a favorite among players for grinding and leveling up (around level 50~55).

To defeat her, it's recommended to summon creatures which deal high and constant damage and which can cover the entire screen, like Uranus + Thunderbird.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

One of Lilith's most characteristic features in Aria of Sorrow is that only the bone structure of her wings remains, without a membrane that could make them suitable for flight. Another characteristic is that in this game she appears completely naked, while in other games she wears at least some garments (headgear, boots, sleeves, etc.).

It's worth mentioning a particular room in the Arena, where Soma encounters a Lilith accompanied by a Succubus apparently taking a bath together in what seems to be bathtub (complete with a floating rubber duck toy).

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

Since Liliths have the ability to curse the player, they can be used to complete Wind's "Overcome the Curse" quest. A Lilith appears in one of the rooms below the portrait that leads to the Nation of Fools, along with a conveniently placed Warp Point. The player just needs to let her curse them and then warp back to Wind's location at the Entrance to complete the quest.

  • In her introduction into the series in Circle of the Moon, Lilith occupied the highest rank among all lady bats. However, in latter games she was demoted as being just a minor enemy, usually a weaker version of the Succubus. It was not until her reappearance in Order of Ecclesia when she was reinstated with her original title once more.
