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 beaks with angry expressions. Blue-skinned, this Fiend is completely naked and 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 StrategyEdit
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.
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.
