The Gargoyle (ガーゴイル Gāgoiru?) is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.

Design

Vaguely resembling their architectural counterparts, Heartless Gargoyles appear fairly rough around the edges. Their dark grey skin is covered by a dark purple bodysuit with roughly stitched-on light purple sleeves that end in a gold zig-zag trim and jagged edges. The purple color extends to cover the head and horns, and the horns also feature black stripes. Like other Heartless, the Gargoyle has golden eyes and a craggy maw, but it can unhinge its jaw to fearsome proportions. Their talons are long, but not nearly as alien as their dark grey feet, which are spindly and two-toed. Their leather-like wings are also pointy and sharp, particularly the tops which resemble spires, spearheads, or even a portion of the Nobody symbol.

The Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Gargoyles are much more colorful than the darker version seen in the original game. The Kingdom Hearts Final Mix versions are clad in light blue, with bright green sleeves, the blue gradating to a pale pink on the top of the heads and horns, and flame-like orange and yellow wings, while their feet are black.

The Gargoyle gets its name from resembling architectural gargoyles, stone representations of a mythological spirit said to ward off darkness.

Story

Kingdom Hearts

During the climax of Sora's adventures in Halloween Town, Oogie Boogie calls out to the Heartless after swallowing the artificial heart created by Dr. Finkelstein, hoping to control them. The only Heartless that came to help him were two Gargoyles because Heartless were not very attracted to a fake heart.

Strategy

This type of Heartless has a hard-to-read attack cycle. One moment it is in orb form, flying around Sora's head, the next moment charging up an attack by spewing a homing ball of light from its mouth. This Heartless actually only has a few basic attacks, but they are quite powerful, so watch out.

Attacks

  • Wing Attack: Unexpectedly enlarges its wings and thrusts them at you with alarming speed, dealing great damage.
  • Claw Attack: Lashes out with claws, dealing a heavy blow.
  • Kick Attack: Takes a quick swing with both its legs at you, dealing small damage.
  • Spewing Attack: Throwing its head back, it almost seems to expel a heat-seeking ball of powerful energy, causing heavy damage.
  • Transporting: Not so much an attack, but more of an unexpected way for it to get closer to you. It silently turns into a ball of blue flame, and dives down towards you, preparing for an attack. Be on your guard if you see one doing this.
