Rahab is a boss that appears in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. He is a gigantic fish who moves very quickly underwater and has the ability to generate cold, allowing him to spit balls of water that can freeze the ocean's surface, or create ice shards from various parts of his body. He first appeared in Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun, where he was called Mr. Dragon, and was a flying dragon instead of a fish.


Rahab is named from a Hebrew water demon normally associated with Egypt and the Red Sea. Prior to the Medieval adoption of "Rahab" to mean "demon" or "sea beast", the name also appears in Psalm 104, Psalm 89:5-12, as well as Job 38:8-11 and Isaiah 51:9-10. Rahab, in these passages, has the meaning of primeval chaotic sea, multi-headed dragon or Leviathan. This aquatic demon should not be confused with Rahab, the woman from Jericho who appears in the book of Joshua, although their names probably share the same etymology.

In medieval Jewish folklore, Rahab is a mythical sea monster, a dragon of the waters, the "demonic angel of the sea", although sometimes he's also seen as a deity. Rahab represents the primordial abyss, the water-dragon of darkness and chaos, comparable to Leviathan and Tiamat. Rahab later became a particular demon, inhabitant of the sea, especially associated with the Red Sea.


Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kunEdit

In this first representation of the monster, Mr. Dragon, as he was called, appears as the boss of Stage 4, which takes part in an icy landscape. He retains his affinity to ice, but in this game he is a flying dragon instead of a fish, and attacks in a very similar fashion as some varieties of flying White Dragons from the Castlevania series.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

Shortly after entering the Subterranean Hell, Soma must face Rahab, the monster that dominates the seas. With the added disadvantage of having to fight him in his own territory: the sea, Soma must resort to swimming on the water's surface while Rahab moves freely below, only surfacing from time to time to unleash one of his ice-based attacks. Either by jumping over Soma in a wide arc, while creating a series of icicles from various parts of his body, or by spewing balls of water with freezing properties, the battle surely takes an interesting approach. Some of Rahab's attacks will freeze the water's surface for a brief time, however, allowing Soma to have a temporary platform where he can fight properly.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

Soma CruzEdit

Not too hard of a boss. Wait for the boss to jump up into the air, that's your chance to attack. When he comes up out of the water, he'll do one of three things:

  1. The first is jumping over Soma. He leaves behind a series of ice spikes which fall down. Swim between them to avoid getting hit. He should stall a few seconds under you, where you can also jump up in the air and slash after you enter the water.
  2. The second thing he'll do is spin around and break all of the ice platforms he's made.
  3. Lastly, he'll make ice platforms that you can stand on. But don't. It's better to float in the water and avoid being hurt when he breaks the platforms.

If you fight him in Boss Rush Mode or New Game+, the Claimh Solais can be the best weapon against this monster, as he is weak to Holy attacks.

Julius BelmontEdit

This plays a bit differently since the trio (Julius, Alucard and Yoko) automatically has the ability to walk underwater. Just stay under him and keep attacking. When he swims to the bottom of the ocean, crouch down and attack. If you're standing up while he descends, you'll be hit. You can also follow him when he jumps up out of the water and land a few blows on him, but you'll need to quickly get to the bottom of the room after. You could also just keep double-jumping, but crouching at the bottom is easier.




  • In other games in the series (SoN, AoS, PoR, among others), a weapon called Rahab's Frost (Rahab's Sword in Aria), described as "an icy blade made from the fang of the water-dragon Rahab" can be found.
