The Rock Armor, also known as Rock Knight, is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is an armored soldier that throws boulders.


This enemy was first introduced in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, being a palette-swap of the Bomber Armor (although in subsequent games it became the other way around).

Rock Armors are armored knights that throw boulders at their foes. They have low mobility and usually stay near the same spot holding a boulder in one hand. When approached, they toss the rock at the enemy and quickly arm themselves again with another one.

Being armored enemies, they're generally weak against Thunder and Strike damage, and interestingly enough, to Stone. The rocks they throw can be destroyed in midair.
