|Appears in||MediEvil / 2019 remake|
Merchant Gargoyles were the greedy counterparts of Information Gargoyles. They sold or exchanged goods throughout Gallowmere.
In 1386 during the evil sorcerer Zarok's second attempt at conquering Gallowmere, the Merchant Gargoyles provided their services to Sir Daniel Fortesque.
The merchants have a blue to silvery-white exterior.
As merchants are initially mute, their overall personality cannot be determined. A book found in Dan's Crypt explaining gold coins states that they are avaricious. This can be seen by how they voraciously gobble up any coins offered them. They also express sadness should Sir Dan have second thoughts about purchasing.
In MediEvil, Sir Dan can buy ammo for his ranged weapons, an enchantment for his Broad Sword, or have his Gold Shield repaired by these creatures. They can also sell him weapons that had been stolen from him by thieving imps.
If Dan is wearing the Super Armour while shopping at a Merchant Gargoyle in the 2019 remake, he will pay an extra 10% of the price, although this increase is not indicated in the merchant menu itself. It is therefore recommended that the armour is taken off before shopping.
|Repair Gold Shield||100||120G|
*Can be bought even after being stolen in the original game, but have to be bought back in the remake.
**Available in the Japanese version and 2019 remake only.
Second hand goods
Prices of second hand goods were halved in the 2019 remake. For example, it costs 600G to buy back the Small Sword in the original game, but 300G in the remake. The table below lists prices as they were in the original game (except for weapons that could not be bought back in the original).
*Can be bought back in remake only.
In MediEvil: Resurrection, Merchant Gargoyles can also repair Dan's copper and silver shields and sell him Energy Vials.

Behind the scenes
Merchant Gargoyles appear in all three versions of MediEvil. They serve as the game's item shop, allowing the player to restock on ammunition or to buy back stolen weapons.
MediEvil (1998 original)
Merchant Gargoyles do not appear in pre-release versions of the game from 1997. It is therefore likely they were conceptualised after the game's Zeldaesque redesign.
Merchant Gargoyles did not return in the second MediEvil. They were instead replaced by The Spiv who provides the same services as they did.
