Blue Gargoyle (also known as Grimalkin in the SNES/PS version) is an enemy that appears in Fiendlord's Keep in the Middle Ages. Resembling gargoyles of mythology and pop-culture, Blue Gargoyles have pointy noses and wear angry expressions. Blue-skinned, this Fiend sports tiny pink wings. It uses its two strong legs to perform relatively high jumps and air-kicks to damage foes. It shares similar sprites and battle animations with Diablo.

Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]

Blue Gargoyles are vanilla enemies and easily defeated in battle. Their only two attacks are physical - but do not deal large quantities of damage. With lower Magic Defense than Physical Defense, it is strategic to attack them with the party's most powerful Magic Techs.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Blue Gargoyle's SNES and PlayStation name, Grimalkin, appears to be a portmanteau of gremlin and kin. The former are winged, demonoid creatures from folklore, while the latter is a synonym for family or clan. This may allude to the unified ideologies Fiends have against Humans, or the simple fact that they frequently appear with other Fiends in battle.
