Hippogryph is the fourth boss Abel Belmont encounters. His theme is Followers of Darkness ~The Second~.
The Hippogryph will fly throughout the sky, while either producing crescent wind blasts, or dropping eggs. The eggs will either hatch into baby Hippogryphs, or explode. The Hippogryph can only be damaged by deflecting the eggs with the whip. After being damaged enough, the Hippogryph will drop to the ground, and use sonic attacks and claw attacks. He has 2000 HP.
