The Wakwak Tree is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is a horrifying tree that can produce pods of men.


Iskandar (Alexander the Great) at the Talking Tree

Alexander the Great conversing with the waq-waq tree, 14e century, Iran (Freer Gallery of Art).

The waqwaq tree is a giant tree in Indo-Persian lore, whose branches or fruits become heads of men, women or monstrous animals (depending on version) screaming "Waq-Waq", which means screams in Persian.

It is a familiar element in all Persian tales and legends, especially in the Shahnameh where Alexander the Great would have conversed with a similar tree, the Indian Tree of the Sun and the Moon, where the latter would have announced his death, far from his country.

It is somewhat similar to the Japanese Jinmenju, another human-like tree.


Unlike the original myth, the Wakwak Tree produces Fleamen instead of human heads in both games where it appears in. However, the enemy itself is not a big threat because it never moves. In addition, it is possible to quickly get rid of the Fleamen it produces before they hatch by cutting its branches quickly enough.
