The Mushussu is an enemy in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. It is a furious beast from ancient Babylonia.


Mushussu - 01

A polished version of the Mušḫuššu dragon from the Ishtar Gate.

The mušḫuššu (also known as "sirrušu" or "sirrush") is a creature depicted on the reconstructed Ishtar Gate of the city of Babylon, dating to the 6th century B.C. As depicted, it is a mythological hybrid: a scaly dragon with hind legs resembling the talons of an eagle, feline forelegs, a long neck and tail, a horned head, a snake-like tongue, and a crest.


The Mushussu is a type of dragon, similar to a Manticore, that can petrify an adventurer with a sting from its scorpion-like tail.

Gaining dominance over its soul grants Soma the Poison Stinger ability, which gives him the ability to grow a scorpion-like tail that has a chance to poison certain enemies. It must be noted that this attack is actually the one used by the Manticore, as the Mushussu petrifies enemies instead.
