The Gargoyle Knight (ソードスタチュー Sōdo Sutachū?, lit. "Sword Statue") is a Pureblood Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix.

It hides among regular gargoyle statues, and appears suddenly to attack. It attacks by slashing its sword. It has no legs, is dark blue black in color, horned, and possesses bat-like wings. Slow as they are, Gargoyle Knights are immune to magic spells. They can also fly and swoop down blade-first, making them all the more dangerous.


A Gargoyle Knight is a statue with a tall, rectangular pedestal colored in various shades of grey. It has four steel grey spikes in its base. The actual statue is the upper body of a thin, muscular gargoyle with steel blue skin and wings of the same color. Each of its hands has four clawed fingers, and it wears a grey armlet with silver spikes on its upper left arm.

The Gargoyle's head is roughly triangular in shape and sports large, angular horns that curve inward. Its face is black and it has small, yellow eyes. It also wields a grey sword with a diamond-shaped guard and a spiked pommel.

The Gargoyle Knight's name refers to the creature the statue is modeled after. "Knight" may reference the fact that it carries a sword, as opposed to the Gargoyle Warrior. Its Japanese name, "Sword Statue", is a much clearer reference to the fact that it is actually just a possessed statue that wields a sword.

  • When a Gargoyle Knight is defeated, a Possessor comes out of it.
  • The Gargoyle Warrior also closely resembles the Demon statue, however the resemblances may be purely coincidental.
