Pazuzu is a boss in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance.

OriginsEdit

Pazuzu - 01

In ancient Mesopotamian religion, Pazuzu was the king of the demons of the wind, brother of Humbaba and son of the god Hanbi.

Pazuzu is the demon of the southwest wind, the bearer of storms and drought, known for bringing famine during dry seasons and locusts during rainy seasons.

Although Pazuzu himself is considered to be an evil spirit, he drives and frightens away other evil spirits as well, therefore protecting humans against plagues and misfortunes.

DescriptionEdit

Pazuzu is a reimagined version of Leviathan, a boss from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. He is found as a boss in Dracula's former throne room in the Castle Top Floor (Castle A). He introduces himself by hatching from a giant egg in the background, where Dracula's throne should be.

Pazuzu attacks mainly by leaping, spewing fireballs in waves, and summoning hordes of Tiny Devils to attack the player.

StrategyEdit

A good strategy to fight Pazuzu consists in staying underneath any of the two raised platforms in the room, making the boss to jump and land on top of them, thus allowing the player to attack him while dodging most of his attacks at the same time.

Several Spell Fusions can be useful in this fight, either those that deal multi-hit damage, or even those that only deal a single but powerful hit.

The normal Axe sub-weapon is especially useful during the encounter. If the player manages to stay below a platform while Pazuzu lands on top of it, they will be able to throw several continuously from that safe location while dealing up to four powerful hits per axe thrown.

One of Pazuzu's most frequent attacks consists on him spewing waves of fireballs in a spreading manner. These are considerably easy to avoid, although the player will need to reposition themself accordingly throughout the duration of the attack.

Another one of his attacks has the demon standing still with his arms crossed while commanding a horde of Tiny Devils to home toward the player. It is recommended to deal with these minions as soon as possible to prevent them from populating the battlefield. Spell Fusions that can cover their spawning point, such as Hail Stone (Axe + Ice Book), will allow the player to deal with a whole batch with just a single cast if done right.
