The Gargoyle is an enemy from Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-. It is one of the weakest enemies encountered on Mt. Hobs, and will often appear alongside the more powerful Fledgling Rukhs. They can be defeated easily with a single physical attack.
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.
