Rowdain is a skeletal horseman and the boss of the first level of Super Castlevania IV. At first, he rides his skeletal horse which has the ability to spit fireballs at Simon. After the horse has sustained enough damage, it will die, leaving Rowdain to fight alone on foot while holding his lance. He will leap high into the air, trying to land on Simon and stab him with it. When his HP has been reduced to 1, he will fake his death by exploding into a mass of bones, only to reform again immediately in a final attempt to harm the hero.
