The Were-Horse is an enemy in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.


The tikbalang is a creature of Philippine folklore said to lurk in the mountains and forests of the Philippines. It is a tall, bony humanoid creature with the head and hooves of a horse and disproportionately long limbs, to the point that its knees reach above its head when it squats down. In some versions, it is a transformation of an aborted fetus sent to Earth from limbo.


A modified sprite of the Minotaur, it is covered in light brown fur. A crest of dark brown fluff sits atop its neck, and it wears a small loincloth around its waist. The Were-Horse comes armed with a big warhammer and advances slowly toward the player; once this is in a considerable proximity, the monster quickly lunges forward while swinging his weapon, which it smashes on the ground producing damaging debris to break out from it.

Keeping a safe distance and using ranged attacks (such as throwing Crucifixes at it) is a good way to deal with them.
