Deathgoyles are a class from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. They are the promoted version of Gargoyles, empowered by dark magic. They are not particularly common monster enemies, even compared to other promoted monsters such as the Entombed and Wight. They are swift and brutal, as well as notably quick compared to a lot of monsters. However, their weakness is that, unlike most 2nd tier units, they are only able to use lances, allowing axe-wielders to take advantage of the weapon triangle against them. As they are also flying units, bows will be effective aganist them as well. One appears as a boss in the Phantom ship, one in the Tower of Valni, a few in a monster base (Melkaen Coast/Narube River), and a moderate number in Lagdou Ruins.
