The gargoyle is the second tier creature of the Mountain faction in Heroes of Might and Magic: A Strategic Quest.

It is a fast, somewhat sturdy, flyer, and an effective counter for enemy ranged units. It's very useful in early fights, and its high speed means that it can also accompany the army later in the game.
