Who is a Gargoyle?
A gargoyle is a fantasy and horror monster inspired by the gargoyle architectural element.
While they were believed in mythology to frighten away evil spirits, the idea of such statues physically coming to life is a more recent notion.
Like golems, they are usually made of magically animated or transformed stone, but have animal or chimera traits and are often guardians of a place such as a cathedral or castle.
They can also be depicted as vessels for demonic possession or as a living species resembling statues.
Some examples of gargoyles in popular culture are:
- Gargoyles, an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television, in which gargoyles protect humanity as part of their nature.
- Ghostbusters, a movie where gargoyles are possessed by the demonic spirits of Zuul and Vinz Klortho.
- Dungeons & Dragons, a fantasy role-playing game, where gargoyles are grotesque winged monstrous humanoid creatures, with a horned head and a stony hide.
Here is a joke about gargoyles: Q: What do you call a gargoyle that likes to sing? A: A rock star!
