Castlevania (N64) / Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness

See also: The Creature

The Gardener in Castlevania and Legacy of Darkness appears as an indestructible monster armed with a chainsaw for one hand. He is based on the canceled playable character Coller, as well as sharing many visual similarities with The Creature (in fact, being renamed as Frankenstein Gardener in the western localization of Legacy of Darkness).

During Reinhardt's and Carrie's campaigns, the Gardener can first be found pruning one of the hedges of the maze. If approached or attacked, he will pursue the player. After meeting Malus, the player has to escape the Gardener, this time accompanied by two gargoyle hounds. After this, the Gardener will pursue the player whenever they enter the maze. In addition, once the player picks up the Copper Key after escaping the maze on Hard Mode, the Gardener and his dogs will spawn outside the maze proper, in a boss fight. Once his health is depleted, the Gardener and the dogs will collapse, remaining unconscious until the player enters the Villa again.

Gardener Garden Keeper 40 (revives)

During Cornell's storyline, the player is asked by Mary Oldrey to save her son, Henry, from the Gardener in exchange for the Copper Key. The player is then required to escort Henry to the exit while defending him from the Gardener.

The Gardener appears also in Henry's storyline, only if the player enters the area by the main entrance, near where Cornell meets Henry, and Carrie and Reinhardt meet Malus. Like in Cornell's campaign, the gargoyle dogs don't appear alongside the Gardener.
