These flying beasts are similar in appearance and attacks to that of a Gargoyle, except that they are larger and have red skin. They are aggressive flyers, both lunging and grabbing a person for a stinger attack from the end of its tail to suck blood of its victim. Draining a victim makes Strigoi stronger; success is indicated by a glowing red drop on its tail.

- In Romanian mythology, 'strigoi' are the troubled souls of the dead rising from the grave. Some strigoi can be living people with certain magical properties. Some of the properties of the strigoi include the ability to transform into an animal, invisibility, and draining the vitality of victims via blood loss. Strigoi are also known as vampires (see Wikipedia: Strigoi).
- With its design, the Strigoi strongly resembles Firebrand, a Red Arremer enemy from Capcom's Ghosts 'n Goblins series.
