Ghoul (グール, Gūru) also known by the nickname "Bok" (ボク, Boku), is one of the major enemies in the Boktai series, and also one of the most common. Ghouls are green zombie-like creatures created through the undeadening that serve the Immortals. They are very weak to sunlight.

Appearance[]

Ghouls are green-skinned humanoid creatures with very thin limbs and a zig-zag mouth. They appear to be wearing purple pants and a large brown shirt. Their eyes, more resembling an animal, are of a yellow sclera without any pupils.

Behavior[]

Ghouls roam around specific areas in dungeons, they are attracted to noise and will inspect any suspicious sound they hear. This can be used by Django to lure them into traps or direct combat.

When they spot an enemy, they attack with Klorofolun by summoning them to pursue the player. In Boktai 2 and 3, they spew out Liquid Klorofolun, which stays on the ground before evaporating.

The Frost and Flame versions of ghouls in the first game are able to summon klorofolun in a straight row to attack their target, the "red" versions of ghouls in this exact same title are able to summon a mallet to throw it against their enemy.

Varieties[]

Etymology[]

A ghoul is a mythological monster from ancient Arabian folklore that dwells in burial grounds and other uninhabited places. The English word comes from the Arabic name for the creature: الغول al-ghūl, which literally means "demon".

A zombie is a creature that appears in folklore and popular culture typically as a reanimated corpse or a mindless human being. Zombies are a popular device in modern horror fiction.
