The Blood-goyle is a lesser demon that appears in Devil May Cry 3, and is created when blood touches certain enchanted statues. They are first encountered in Mission 5: Of Devils and Swords when Jester fills a fountain with blood, which animates the ornamental statues in it. The blood left behind after Dante knocks one into a wall forms the number 5.
Blood-goyles have bat-like wings, long tails, legless bodies, and grotesque faces with beak-like noses. Blood-goyles split in half when hit with melee weapons, but modern-day weapons such as guns will actually cause them to temporarily revert into statues. They can be found in both a regular and a "giant" size, which splits into regular Blood-goyles and is slightly slower.
Use the Spiral, Kalina Ann, or Artemis against Blood-goyles, as these weapons make it much easier to make them turn into stone. However, Ebony & Ivory are much more accurate, and rarely miss at long range. Cerberus's strike instantly turns blood-goyles into stone and preserves this form while hitting them.
After a little time they will revert to their previous form. If you are away from them when they petrify, keep firing while you move towards them. The more you fire, the more they will remain petrified.
When they split, they start shrieking and swelling up. Use this as a warning to alert you that they are increasing in number. When they are about to attack, they start spinning in circles and dive towards you. If you can shoot them when they are spinning you can stop them from attacking.
As for the giant Blood-goyle, although it takes longer to defeat, there will only ever be one on the field at a time.
