Behemoth is a cow-based woman that is the final of the three exclusive bosses in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji before Fudoushi and rightfully one of the most difficult. That reason being that she mesmerizes Arle with a dance before attacking, which can be quite difficult for some players to deal with.

After defeat, Behemoth runs off in humiliation that she was beaten by a child.


  • Japanese fans find her similar to Rulue; she carries around a fan, has a "noblewoman's laugh", and is a skilled fighter rather than relying on magic powers. Others think she is also highly like Minotauros as they are both humanoid cows, or possibly a combination of the two characters.

He first appeared in the PC98 version in replacement of Mamono, and was used in the later remakes with new abilities such as being able to change his size or poison the player. Due to him being more frightening looking, this may be the reason he had never appeared in the actual Puyo Puyo games.

Garuda is a demonic bird that shouts an ear-shrilling screech when encountered or defeated. The black blood that drips from its mouth that belongs to Lamia. When Lamia loses, Garuda appears from the shadows and devours her body.
