|“||Beware the Glass Demon! His soul lies frozen in his glass heart, hidden deep in the catacombs.||”|
– Book, MediEvil
This glass-spewing monstrosity is Zarok's best mate, which says it all really, but just to confirm, this transparent fiend is utterly evil. There is only one way to defeat such a creature and that is to target his exposed crystal cut heart. Judicious and sustained use of long-range arsenal will finally shatter the Demon into a thousand pieces, and good job too!
In the game, the demon is first mentioned within a book before the Skull Gates in the Graveyard level. It is revealed to be the Master of the Mausoleum, as well as the holder of the Skull Key (Stain Glass Key in Resurrection). A gargoyle near the end of the level tells Dan that Zarok travelled to the Mausoleum to meet with the demon.
Later, Daniel travels into the catacombs below the Mausoleum and releases the demon's soul by shattering the frozen glass heart in which it was preserved. The soul flies to the stained glass window and when Daniel approaches it, the soul enters the window and the demon awakens, triggering the battle.
After it is defeated, it shatters and drops the Skull key (or a pouch of gold if the skull key was already collected).
In Resurrection, the demon obtains the Stained Glass Key instead.
It has two normal attacks and three charged attacks. The two normal attacks consist of jumping on the player, or jumping opposite him and throwing glass shards onto him. The charge attacks are throwing a large amount of glass shards upon the player, trapping him in a glass crystal that drains his health, and creating an explosive burst of energy that damages the player.The player can only attack the demon when it hovers in the air, it's heart seperates from the body and it's charging its attack. It is recommended that the player runs immediately after the demon launches its attack.
