Destroy the eye!
~ Announcer in Gradius III

Gregol (グレゴール?) is the boss of the stage 6 in the arcade version of Gradius III.


The first thing one will notice when facing Gregol is his striking resemblance to the Golem. He chases the player slowly around the screen, moving either in a snake-like pattern or by "rolling". He will randomly and briefly expose his eye as each segment fires normal bullets toward the Vic Viper. Gregol will often fire two arms on either side of your ship to trap you, then pull himself toward the wall between his arms. Your ship will be destroyed by this tactic unless you destroy one of the arms before he moves.
