Enkidu is an enemy in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. It is a lonely artificial monster, its only company a White Dragon.


Enkidu - 02

Enkidu from an Assyrian palace relief.

Enkidu is a central figure in the Ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh. Enkidu was formed from clay and saliva by Aruru, the goddess of creation, to rid Gilgamesh of his arrogance.

In the story, he is a wild man raised by animals and ignorant of human society until he is bedded by Ishtar. Thereafter, a series of interactions with humans and human ways bring him closer to civilization, culminating in a wrestling match with Gilgamesh.

Though equal to Gilgamesh in strength and bearing, he acts in some ways as an antithesis to the warrior king. Enkidu then becomes the king's constant companion and deeply beloved friend, accompanying him on adventures until he is stricken with illness and dies. The deep, tragic loss of Enkidu profoundly inspires in Gilgamesh a quest to escape death by obtaining godly immortality.


Enkidu only appears in one location, the midway segment of Misty Forest Road. It is similar in appearance to The Creature, but carries a large segment of a pillar. Attached to this pillar is a White Dragon, which behaves the same as the normal enemy.

If the White Dragon is destroyed first, Enkidu will strike the pillar with its head in frustration, then hoist the pillar fragment on its shoulder and follow Shanoa, attempting to hit her with it.

If Enkidu is destroyed first, it will die and get crushed by the pillar. The White Dragon will continue to attack as normal. While most White Dragons will drop Hearts upon defeat, this one will drop $10 coins.
