Gargoyle is an enemy from Vagrant Story. They accompany Wraith in the Iron Maiden B1. Gargoyles are fast moving and can use the special ability, Numbing Hook, to cause damage and inflict Numbness, which disables Chain abilities. The player can attack their wings with a piercing weapon to slow them down.
Gargoyles were initially ordinary stone statues built on rooftops to let rainwater above flow down to the ground through certain paths. The statues were usually carved as monsters and strange creatures, which later spawned the belief that gargoyles are the guardians of the buildings they live in.
