Origins
Original Castlevania lore


The Peeping Eye is a common eyeball monster from the Castlevania video game series. They are floating eyes that have tails, chains, or a similar strip of material attached to them. It lies with its eye closed, awaiting prey, and when a victim approaches, it will swoop down and attack with either its whip chain tail or, in some games, a beam of energy that is emitted from its single eye.

It is described in various bestiaries as the castle's designated "watch dog" (a pun referencing the fact it's a monster eyeball).

General InformationEdit

The Peeping Eye is notable for being an enemy with a fairly consistent item drop: it usually drops an item, accessory or soul that allows the player to see hidden or breakable walls. As the Peeping Eye is literally a giant eyeball, this makes perfect sense.

Peeping Eyes can be the bane of some players, as they generally can only be attacked by jumping and then attacking, which given its movement pattern, is usually inefficient and risky.

Depending on the game they appear in, their tails can be either completely harmless or one of their main methods of attack. In some games, the tail is just too short to present any kind of danger; in others, making contact with them may have no effect at all; yet in others, they may unleash a special attack where they lash their tails furiously while homing fast toward the hero.

This enemy makes a minor appearance in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Peeking through the archways in the background, a giant Peeping Eye can be seen following Alucard as he moves through the Marble Gallery hallway leading to the Outer Wall. The Peeping Eye is only seen in this room and is not actually an enemy in the game, being little more than part of the background, albeit one that follows the player's movements and gives the game some added depth by including the castle's infamous "watch dog" as a piece of scenery.

A boss version of this enemy appears in Harmony of Dissonance, called the Peeping Big. When slain, it explodes into a multitude of smaller Peeping Eyes, although these don't have chain tails.

The improved variant on the Peeping Eye is the Bugbear. It behaves almost exactly the same as the Peeping Eye, except that it uses electricity on the end of its tail to attack.

In other mediaEdit

A toy of the Peeping Eye was released as an accessory with NECA's Dracula action figure.
