Board games

Most games (see list below)

Mud Men are enemies in the Castlevania series. They're generally found in the swamp areas of the games they appear, and are essentially mud animated by magical arts to resemble a humanoid creature.

They usually don't attack directly after spawning, as they exhibit the qualities of a mindless creature. Commonly when one Mud Man is encountered, an infinite number of Mud Men will be summoned to aimlessly walk the swamp.

Mud men are known for the relative ease by which they can be destroyed, but are a deadly threat to anybody unlucky enough to fall into the swamps from which they are born, as they can be conjured from any point and will deal damage when a player comes into contact with them. When struck they sometimes break off a little at a time and the mud may coalesce to form smaller mud-men.

In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, a mud man can only be encountered if it is summoned by the Lesser Demon fought in the Long Library.


Castlevania: The AdventureEdit

Mud Man (misspelled as "Mad Man" in the manual) falls from the top of the screen as mud and takes the form of a human to chase the player.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night / Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

In some games such as Symphony of the Night and Portrait of Ruin, Mud Men have a technique where if they get close enough to a hero, they will burst open their chest and stick out what appears to be large metal spikes with which to pierce them. Whether or not they are metal spikes has yet to be determined, but it is an interesting ability for the Mud Men.

Castlevania: Circle of the MoonEdit

Mudmen in Circle of the Moon can be found in the Catacomb. They attack by jumping toward Nathan in an arc. Should the player dodge the attack, they will simply vanish upon contact with the ground.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

The Mud Demon appears in the sandy parts of the Abyss. It behaves much like Procel, being that it is a head made out of the material it resides in, and uses attacks made out of the material it resides in. The soul it drops is an ability soul which allows free movement in sand. It is not technically a useful soul, but it makes traveling through the Abyss much faster.

  • Creatures made of animated mud or ooze by magical arts were first introduced into popular culture by several types of board games, mainly from the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. They've also appeared throughout many classic horror-themed TV series and films.
