Gargoyle is a dangerous[1] flying hostile creature found only during monster waves in all worlds. They spawn in flocks and attack the fortress and dwarfs from above.

Fossilized Gargoyle[ | ]

Gargoyles are nocturnal creatures and can't take the sunlight, which turns them into stone.

Type Disassemblable

When the sun rises, all gargoyles will turn to fossilized gargoyles[2], falling to the ground as little stone statues and being collected by dwarfs or imps to the stockpile.

Ghost interaction[ | ]

If a ghost reaches the stockpile, it will prioritize throwing a stone gargoyle over everything else. If it is thrown out of the stockpile during the night, it will turn back into a normal gargoyle and begin attacking dwarfs again.

The player may handle this nuisance by:

  • Disassambling fossilized gargoyles to get some of the resources listed below; or
  • Letting them come back to life for, maybe, get some coins, with 10% chance for each gargoyle. To do this, it's recomended to have static defenses like frogolisks and owlcats around the stockpile to avoid needing any special attention every time a gargoyle comes out.

Disassembling[ | ]

Fossilized gargoyles are not craftable, but the player may get some of these resources below when disassembling it.
