Spriggan is an enemy in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance.

Spriggans are legendary creatures of the fairy traditions of Cornwall, and especially of Penwith West. They are fairy creatures, but evil in nature.

They were depicted as grotesquely ugly, wizened old men with large child-like heads. They were said to be found at old ruins, cairns, and barrows guarding buried treasure. Although small, they were usually considered to be the ghosts of giants, with the ability to swell to enormous size. They were also said to act as fairy bodyguards.

Spriggans were notorious for their unpleasant dispositions, and delighted in working mischief against those who offended them. They raised sudden whirlwinds to terrify travelers, sent storms to blight crops, and sometimes stole away mortal children, leaving their ugly changelings in their place.


Spriggans are encountered in quite a few locations in both Castle A and Castle B. They resemble tall knights that move around by hopping. When they engage an opponent, they attack by performing long sliding kicks along the floor.

The Spriggan has quite a peculiar design; first and foremost, he has no arms, his helmet does not seem to have any defined features, his armor appears to be segmented in various stripes or bands mainly aligned in a horizontal manner which cover either a red undergarment or body, he wears a blue kilt boasting some sort of symbol on it (probably an omega), and most prominently, a gush of blue energy spreads out from his back, possibly propelling him to provide mobility.
