The Gear Steamer is a boss in Castlevania: Bloodlines.


The Gear Steamer appears as the boss of the Munitions Factory. It is an enemy conformed by several gears controlled by what appears to be telekinetic, magnetic, or magical energies (or maybe a combination of these) to give it the appearance of a giant humanoid. A central orb hovers at the center of its body, which is the enemy itself controlling the rest of the gears.

Gear Card

Death's Gear Steamer card.

The monster can acquire many forms by relocating the position of its gears. It can toss gears at the hero, either in a straight line or in arcs while wailing its arms; somersault through the room; hover and spin around while making a sweep through the room; or "dive" into the ground and "swim" to the other side.

Only its central core can be damaged and every time it receives a hit, the gears will tighten more toward it, gradually reducing the monster's size. Once it has received enough damage, the gears will expand again rendering the creature to its original size in a final attempt to stop the hero. Sometimes, when the player is defeated, it will trigger a short taunt animation.

This boss makes a final appearance as part of Death's fight in Castle Proserpina. Aptly named Card Gear Steamer this time, hitting the IV card Death spins around the room will take the hero to fight a weaker version of this enemy.
