Rowdain is the first boss in Super Castlevania IV. He is a lance-wielding skeletal horseman riding on an equally skeletal steed.

Description

Rowdain is the boss of the first stage, The Ruined Mansion. He is a skeletal horseman riding on an equally skeletal steed, which has the ability to spew fireballs at the player.

Once the horse has sustained enough damage, it will die, leaving Rowdain to fight on foot with his lance. He will then start performing high leaps into the air and try to land on top of Simon to stab him with it.

Once his HP has been reduced to 1, he will fake his death by exploding into a mass of bones, only to reform again immediately in a final attempt to harm the hero.
