Nominon is an enemy in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. It is an evil, soul-sucking spirit that paralyzes its victims.


Phantoon - 01

Phantoon from the Metroid series.

This creature's origins appear to be based on the Incubus, a creature from the Berserk manga/anime series, which made its debut in 1990.

However, since both the Metroid and the Castlevania series have been often compared to since the release Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it's more likely that Nominon's origins are linked to Phantoon, an enemy boss which made its debut in Super Metroid (1994).


Nominon is a small, tentacled spirit that floats around its prey waiting for a perfect opportunity to strike. The monster will quickly lunge and attach to its head, paralyzing it, and then proceed to use its tentacles to suck up its soul. They are usually encountered when there are other enemies around, and use these distractions to their advantage.

They are remarkably weak, however, and a single strike from most weapons is usually enough to put them down, making fighting them more a matter of precision than of sheer force.
