The Fish Head is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are the skeletal remains of a fish reanimated by dark power to protect the sea.


The Fish Head is a construction made with the skulls of two violent fishes stacked one on top of the other. They are the reanimated remains of a fish from the neck up, capable of shooting a watery projectile. Found in the waterways of Dracula's castle, as well as out to sea. Fish Heads replace Bone Pillars in such places as they are no doubt better suited to the environment.
