Enemies are the numerous and various creatures players will encounter throughout the ruins. Most can be defeated with any Weapon or Sub-Weapon, with exceptions noted in their respective descriptions. All enemies can drop Experience orbs, Ammo, or Coins when defeated - the specific Collectibles dropped by each enemy are also listed under their respective descriptions. Keep in mind that only one can drop at a time, and drops are not guaranteed. Having an Item Fairy will increase the odds of Collectibles dropping as well as boost the quantity dropped.

The following is a complete listing of every enemy in the game, where they can be found, what they drop, and a description of their attack patterns with tips for defeating them. Several of these differ from their counterparts in the original, and others have been removed entirely.

A Bao A QuEdit

Dot a bao a qu
  • Location: Tower of the Goddess
  • Drops: Weights
  • Reference: Book of Imaginary Beings (1967)
  • These invisible creatures wait for Lemeza to turn his back before swooping in, and will dodge out of the way when you turn to attack them. The Eye of Truth renders them visible, but they can still be a hassle and ruin your jumps. Sneak up from behind or try to hit them with a wide-swinging weapon such as the Axe.

AmonEdit

Dot amon
Dot amon hell
  • Location: Dimensional Corridor, Hell Temple
  • Drops: Weights
  • Reference: Ars Goetia
  • Variants: The yellow version appears in Hell Temple.
  • A stubby-looking dragon thing. It walks back and forth, periodically teleporting to an empty platform. It attacks by breathing a bolt of fire which homes towards Lemeza wherever he is on the screen and can be destroyed with the whip.

AndrasEdit

Dot andras
Dot andras hell
  • Location: Tower of the Goddess, Hell Temple
  • Drops: Chakram
  • Reference: Ars Goetia
  • Variants: The brown version appears in Hell Temple.
  • A demon with the head of an owl which rides around on a wolf. It can dismount from the wolf and send it dashing across platforms to attack Lemeza. If its wolf is killed, Andras takes flight, becoming harder to reach. In the air, it will occasionally fire orbs of energy at Lemeza with its sword, and can also perform a diving attack.

AnubisEdit

Dot anubis
  • Location: Temple of Moonlight - Other areas in Hard Mode
  • Drops: Weights, occasionally
  • Reference: Egyptian mythology
  • Not to be confused with the larger Sub-Boss Anubis. These robed beings slowly float back and forth along platforms and over gaps, turning only when they reach a wall. If Lemeza enters their line of sight, they will fire a beam of energy horizontally across the entire screen, rapidly draining his health as long as he remains in the beam. Attack from behind. The Book of the Dead nullifies this effect, rendering the enemy harmless outside of direct physical contact.

AspEdit

Dot asp
  • Location: Gate of Illusion
  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • These purple snakes skirt along the floors, rapidly jumping at Lemeza when he comes near, making them difficult to hit as well as dodge in tight spaces. Use a fast, long-ranged weapon like the Whip or Keysword.

AssassinEdit

Dot assassin
  • Location: Tower of the Goddess, Chamber of Birth, Hell Temple
  • Drops: None
  • This ninja-like enemy quickly jumps out of the shadows, kicking Lemeza before quickly disappearing again. They are very tough to hit, but can be avoided by constantly moving.

Axe HeadEdit

Dot axe head
  • Location: Surface
  • Drops: Coins
  • Reference: None
  • One of the first enemies players will encounter before entering the ruins, these large blue snakes slowly wander back and forth, speeding up with a hiss as Lemeza approaches.

Bai ZeEdit

Dot bai ze
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Asian mythology
  • These beasts slowly prowl the ice, harmless until they bear down and begin flashing yellow and red. Eventually they will fire five spiky projectiles in front of them at a wide angle, making them tough to avoid without a shield. Defeat them quickly!

BatEdit

Dot bat
Dot bat 8bit
  • Location: All Frontside Fields (Endless Corridor has many Ilbats and a single frontside bat), Gate of Time
  • Drops: Coins
  • Reference: None
  • Variants: The single-color version appears in Gate of Time.
  • Bats are the most common enemy in the ruins. Typically found in groups, they will hang by the ceiling for a time before flying around in unpredictable patterns. They are slow but can be tough to hit, and they have a tendency to interfere with jumps. If Lemeza has the Scriptures, bats will harmlessly pass through him.

BehemothEdit

Dot behemoth-0
Dot behemoth hell
  • Location: Chamber of Birth, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Hebrew Bible
  • Variants: The pink version appears in Hell Temple.
  • Elephant-like beasts which wear turbans. They can climb up and down ladders and take a significant amount of damage before being defeated. They inherently guard damage from the front, requiring several hits before being stunned, at which point they are susceptible to damage. If Lemeza gets too close in front, they will jump up and slam themselves into the ground, causing extra damage. Best attacked from behind with strong, fast weapons.

BennuEdit

Dot bennu
  • Location: Temple of the Sun
  • Drops: Flares
  • Reference: Egyptian mythology
  • A bird-like creature that resembles a heron. It slowly flies around the screen, leaving slow-falling balls of flame behind which can interfere with jumps. Occasionally it will land on an available platform, leaving an open opportunity to attack while it stands idle.

Black DogEdit

Dot black dog
  • Location: Tower of Ruin
  • Drops:
  • Reference: British folklore
  • These enemies dash very quickly back and forth across platforms, jumping across gaps and lunging at Lemeza. Careful timing is needed to hit them, but they can be dodged by jumping. They resemble the black panther enemies from the Castlevania series.

BlobEdit

Dot blob
  • Location: Chamber of Extinction
  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • Ghostly, clawed hands that unexpectedly reach out from floors and ceilings. These remnants of the Chamber of Extinction are easy to hit once they appear, but predicting where they will pop out next is difficult.

BonnaconEdit

Dot bonnacon
  • Location: Endless Corridor
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Asian mythology
  • These beasts resemble bulls, walking slowly across the floors of the Endless Corridor. It will occasionally lift its tail and spray flaming dung at a wide angle across the room, which is only reliably avoided by staying in front of it or using a shield.

CailleachEdit

Dot cailleach
Dot cailleach hell
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Scottish/Irish folklore
  • Variants: The Cailleach with no visible eyes appears in Hell Temple.
  • A sorceress who teleports around the room, each time firing a tendril of ice that extends a fixed distance toward Lemeza and remains on screen until destroyed or another one takes its place. They can be tough to reach due to their teleportation and the slippery floors making control difficult, and their tendrils make it even harder to get close. The best strategy is to wait for her to teleport near you and attack first.

Cait SithEdit

Dot cait sith
  • Location: Temple of the Sun
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Scottish/Irish folklore
  • A mythical cat which can climb and balance on an inflated ball (earning them the nickname "Catball"). It rolls back and forth, even up sandy slopes. The cat and the ball are independent - if the ball is popped, the cat will simply walk along the floor. If the cat is slain while on the ball, the ball will maintain its momentum and continue rolling, potentially damaging Lemeza.
  • In hard mode; a MUCH stronger,faster specimen can be found near the Grail Tablet (C-1).

CamioEdit

Dot camio
Dot camio hell
  • (IMPORTANT: Name is not confirmed, but deduced from the sprites of the enemy and projectile)
  • Location: Chamber of Birth, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Ars Goetia
  • Variants: The red version appears in Hell Temple.
  • These bird-like creatures, carrying swords in their beaks, fly around rapidly, occasionally beating their wings to emit a blue sword projectile which will spin in place for a fixed duration before darting straight for Lemeza. They can be a major nuisance by interfering with jumps. Camio appears to replace the original game's Phoenix.

ChonchonEdit

Dot chonchon
  • Location: Tower of the Goddess
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Chilean/Argentinian folklore
  • These flying heads float across the screen, floating up and down in a sinusoidal pattern. Their frustrating flight pattern should be familiar to any fan of the Castlevania series.

CockatriceEdit

Dot cockatrice
Dot cockatrice 8bit
  • Location: Surface, Gate of Time
  • Drops: Weights
  • Reference: European folklore
  • Variants: The single-color version appears in Gate of Time.
  • Among the first enemies players will encounter, these grey birds stand around harmlessly until Lemeza passes in front of their line of vision. They will then fly up into the air, pausing before swooping down to attack and eventually flying off screen. They can be a bit tough to hit but are easily avoided with proper timing.

CondorEdit

Dot condor
  • Location: Surface
  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • A few of those large birds can be encountered on the Surface. They circle around in the sky for a time before diving straight at Lemeza from any angle. They are tough to avoid and can really cause trouble near the waterfall area.

CyclopsEdit

Dot cyclops
  • Location: Tower of the Goddess
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Greek/Roman mythology
  • A lumbering creature with one eye. After sustaining enough damage, the body disappears and the eye begins to fly around independently. If it drifts close enough to a platform or the ground, it may generate a new body.

  • Location: Dimensional Corridor, Hell Temple
  • Drops:

Di JiangEdit

Dot di jiang
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Chinese mythology
  • These six-legged faceless creatures move very slowly across the ice, occasionally lifting into the air with their wings but never traveling very far. They have no particular attacks, but coming in contact with one does considerable damage which is tough to avoid due to the slippery ice. They have quite a bit of health and need several hits to take down.

DruidEdit

Dot druid
Dot druid hell
  • Location: Twin Labyrinths, Hell Temple
  • Drops: Earth Spears
  • Reference: None
  • Variants: A druid with paler robes and no visible face appears in Hell Temple.

  • Location: Shrine of the Mother, True Shrine of the Mother, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Hindu mythology
  • Variants: The green version appears in Hell Temple.
  • An infuriating yellow monkey-like creature with colorful facial markings. They walk back and forth and will occasionally lift up a metal rod, causing a tendril of lightning to strike out toward Lemeza. The lightning is very difficult to avoid, so the best way to deal with this enemy is to defeat it quickly. Fortunately, the lightning can only barely move past solid surfaces.

HedgeEdit

Dot hedge-0

HippocampEdit

Dot hippocamp
  • Location: Spring in the Sky
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Greek mythology
  • A creature that can skirt along the surface of water as well as dive under it. They will seek out and attack Lemeza when he is underwater, and their movement patterns can make them tough to hit.

HundunEdit

Dot hundun

IlbatEdit

Dot bat (backside)
  • Drops: Coins
  • Location: All Backside Fields (Endless Corridor has many Ilbats and a single frontside bat)

Dot kakoujuu
  • Location: Inferno Cavern
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Japanese folklore
  • These flaming rats walk slowly across the floors of Inferno Cavern, their body occasionally spitting out embers which linger on the floor and can burn Lemeza on contact. The embers can be as readily destroyed by your weapons as the Kakoujuu itself.

KeseranEdit

Dot keseran
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants
  • Drops: Earth Spears
  • Reference: Japanese folklore
  • These fluffballs float around relatively harmlessly, but can get in the way of jumps. Swinging at them will cause them to float away some distance, making them hard to hit. This is likely a reference to a similar entity in The Maze of Galious.

Killer RockEdit

Dot killer rock

  • Drops: An explosion! Also Weights, if you kill them with your weapons (they will still explode though)
  • Reference: None
  • These spiky balls immediately home in on Lemeza as soon as he enters the room, turning red when close by and eventually exploding, catching Lemeza in the blast radius. Attacking them will cause them to explode as well. Either hit them from a safe distance with Sub-Weapons or evade.

Kodama RatEdit

Dot kodama rat
Dot kodama rat 8bit

  • Drops: Shuriken
  • Reference: Japanese folklore

KrakenEdit

Lava BallEdit

Dot lava ball
  • Location: Inferno Cavern
  • Drops: None
  • Reference: None
  • These glowing balls of molten stone erupt from the lava and can break into smaller pieces. A nasty surprise for anyone attempting a jump over the pits.

LeucrottaEdit

Dot leucrotta
  • Location: Twin Labyrinths
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Indian/Ethiopian folklore (The Leucrotta/Crocotta is actually a mythical wolf-hyena hybrid, and appears to be a misnomer in this case)
  • These slow-moving crocodile type enemies can be found crawling across platforms. They are rather flat, and thus require downward-attacking weapons to hit them if you're standing on the same level as they are.

Lizard ManEdit

Dot lizard man
Dot lizard man hell
  • Location: Gate of Illusion, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • Variants: The fuschia version appears in Hell Temple.
  • These walking lizards carry shields and behave like a tougher version of the Masked Men. When Lemeza is in their line of sight, they will spit fireballs across the screen. When close enough to Lemeza, they will swing their sword at him. They can block attacks from the front, but their shield will be knocked away after enough hits, leaving them briefly open to attacks. Try to hit them from below if possible.

  • Drops: Shuriken
  • Reference: None

Mini BossEdit

Dot mini boss
  • Location: Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Naramura

  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • Mudmen are the sixth Children of Mother, created by the fifth using the Cog of the Soul.

  • Drops:
  • Reference:
  • Variants: The grey version appears in Hell Temple. The single-color version appears in Gate of Time.
  • These giant stone fists slowly float back and forth. If Lemeza steps in front of them, they rapidly charge at him until hitting a wall or obstacle. Early in the game, when Lemeza has little health, they can be a major threat. Attack from behind or jump over them to evade.
    • They are less durable when rapidly charging at Lemeza.  Use a Sub-Weapon (especially Shuriken) to dispatch them quickly.

Rong Xuanwang CorpseEdit

Dot rong xuanwang corpse
  • Location: Endless Corridor
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Chinese mythology
  • A headless horse that can be one of three random sizes. At its smallest size, it runs back and forth quickly and can be hard to hit without a low-reaching weapon. At its middle size, it can only be damaged by Sub-Weapons. At its largest size, it moves very slowly and will drain Lemeza's health if he enters its line of sight similar to the Anubis enemy. Note that the Book of the Dead does not block this health drain effect!

RusalkiEdit

Dot rusalki

  • Drops: Earth Spears
  • Reference: General mythology
  • A red fire lizard which moves slowly on the floor. It will occasionally transform into three small flames which rapidly dance across the screen, eventually reforming. Lemeza can attack and destroy these flames, but leaving even one behind is enough for the Salamander to reform.

  • Drops:
  • Reference: Hebrew Bible
  • Variants: The turquoise version appears in Hell Temple.
  • These small flying demons float around the room slowly, eventually stopping and firing a rapid barrage of lasers in a sweeping, circular pattern. They are best dealt with quickly.

Dot skeleton-0

SkeletonEdit

Dot skeleton 8bit
  • Location: Everywhere
  • Drops: Weights
  • Reference: None
  • Variants: The single-color version appears in Gate of Time.
  • Skeletons are a very common enemy with several variations which can be found in different areas of the ruins. They mostly walk back and forth, occasionally pausing and sometimes collapsing into a pile of bones. As many non-enemy skeletons can be found in the background throughout the ruins, it is difficult to tell if a skeleton is actually an enemy or not. They do not take damage while standing, instead collapsing when hit, only taking damage while collapsed. If Lemeza possesses the Perfume, skeletons can be destroyed without collapsing provided enough damage is done.

SkilletonEdit

Dot skilleton
  • Location: Everywhere
  • Drops:
  • Reference: None
  • The most dangerous variety of skeleton. It can throw three fast-moving bone darts in a wide angle, potentially hitting Lemeza from below, and they have the most health out of any skeleton. Even the Perfume is not enough to defeat it with one hit.

SkulletonEdit

Dot skulleton
  • Location: Everywhere
  • Drops: Weights
  • Reference: None
  • More powerful than the Skeleton, but less powerful than the Skilleton. It can throw bones at Lemeza in a horizontal line or in an arc. Like the Skeleton, it dies in one hit with the Perfume.

Dot sky fish
  • Location: Tower of Ruin
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Optical illusion
  • These strange creatures move so fast that even freezing time will only slow their moments. They only appear as very faint, fast moving blurs without using the Lamp of Time. They are still possible to hit if you're lucky, but they are more likely to hit Lemeza.

SprigganEdit

Dot spriggan
  • Location: Chamber of Extinction
  • Drops: None
  • Reference: Cornish folklore
  • A large living statue. If struck 20 times, he will awaken and slowly walk forward, stopping to fire a floor-sweeping laser from its eye if Lemeza stands too close. Striking it 20 times again will disable it, allowing its head to be used as a platform. Cannot be destroyed.

  • Drops:
  • Reference: Robert E. Howard's short story, "The Slithering Shadow"
  • Variants: The single-color version appears in Gate of Time.
  • These transparent blobs with frog heads are produced endlessly by gaping mouths in the background. They fall down slowly and move back and forth once landing.

ToujinEdit

Dot toujin-0
  • Location: Graveyard of the Giants, Temple of the Sun, Tower of the Goddess, Dimensional Corridor, Hell Temple
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Unknown
  • A bright red turtle that shuffles slowly back and forth. Its hard shell protects it from rear attacks. If Lemeza enters its line of sight, it will charge and fire three fireballs straight at him. To defeat it, equip a shield and wait until after the fourth fireball, then hit it. The Toujin in Hell Temple will make your life miserable.
  • In hard mode; a toujin able to fire five shots in a row can be found in the Gate of Illusion (D-2).

TrollEdit

Dot troll
  • Location: Temple of Moonlight
  • Drops:
  • Reference: General folklore
  • These gray rock monsters move very slowly, occasionally curling into a ball and rolling back and forth. They cannot be harmed while in this form, so be sure not to get trapped in a narrow path and defeat them quickly.

Wall BeastEdit

Dot wall beast
  • Location: Chamber of Birth
  • Drops: None
  • Reference: None
  • These creatures inhabit large sections of the walls. They attack by flipping the wall section behind which they are hiding and shoot projectiles at Lemeza. After a while, they flip the wall and hide again. Cannot be defeated.

  • Location: Spring in the Sky
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Welsh folklore
  • Nicknamed "Surprise Fish" by the La-Mulana community, these winged frogs swim up and down the waterfalls, leaping out toward Lemeza if he comes near.

  • Reference: None
  • Variants: A Witch with paler robes and not even eyes visible appears in Hell Temple.

Dot xing tian
  • Location: Twin Labyrinths, Hell Temple
  • Drops: Caltrops
  • Reference: Chinese mythology
  • Headless humanoids which have a large face on their entire torso. They wield axes and shields (though this does not block damage in any way), walking back and forth across platforms. As they take damage, they will gradually become more red-tinted and move faster.

YaksiEdit

Dot yaksi

YowieEdit

Dot yowie
  • Location: Temple of Moonlight
  • Drops:
  • Reference: Australian Aboriginal folklore
  • These half-lizard half-insects slowly crawl along the background walls, often getting in the way. They have no attacks, but will take several hits with weaker weapons to dispatch, making them a nuisance on narrow platforms and elevators.

Zao ChiEdit

Dot zao chi
  • Location: Twin Labyrinths
  • Drops: Rolling Shuriken
  • Reference: Chinese mythology
  • These red-furred monkeys have frighteningly long downward horns jutting from their foreheads. They run around platforms quickly and can jump up and down between them, requiring quick reflexes to dispatch.
