The Hyena is an enemy in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. It is a sniper hyena werebeast armed with a musket.


The hyena is a werebeast covered with brown fur and dressing in red robes that wields a musket. Its method of attack is very similar to that of the Skeleton Gunmen found in other games, although it does not take breaks to step back and reload its weapon.

It remains knelt down in place and periodically shoots a single bullet, telegraphing this attack by briefly turning red beforehand.

In narrow places where jumping is not possible, the bullet can be dodged by sliding underneath it instead with proper timing (hopefully also killing the Hyena with the kick that accompanies this move).

It drops the valuable Night Suit, which raises STR +20, among other stat boosts.
