Ancient gargoyle[1] is a very dangerous[2] hostile flying creature found in underground hidden rooms of all biomes and worlds, in single or multiplayer games.


Not to be confused with the decorative statues: side and frontal.

The ancient gargoyle is first found as a stone statue.

When any dwarf approaches the statue within a 3-blocks distance, the statue becomes alive and the gargoyle will chase the dwarf who disturbed its "sleep".

The empty pedestal can be dug and will produce five stones.

Gargoyle statue.
