The Flying Zombie is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are zombies which attack even when cut in half.


A seemingly normal Zombie; when attacked, it splits in half and the upper body flies about while the lower body continues walking toward the player. Both halves must then be separately destroyed.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Flying Zombies are encountered in Death Wing's Lair and also make an appearance in the Soul Prison, a stage exclusive to the Saturn version of Symphony of the Night.

They look just like normal Zombies, albeit wearing old, ragged prison pants instead of tunics. They also move notoriously slow and are generally encountered in large numbers.

When a Flying Zombie is struck, its body will rip apart and the torso will start levitating on its own while the legs remain on the ground advancing forward. Both parts will still move very slowly and not pose much of a threat, resulting in dealing with them just an exercise of performing more attacks than usual in order to get rid of all the body parts.
