Barghest, Revenant Faerie, is the name of a Faerie type enemy introduced in Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon.


A faerie spirit summoned by Fauns. They tend to have a fairer complexion than flesh and blood faeries, and the trademark of being faintly transparent. Though a spirit, the Faun's magic gives them a corporeal form in this world. Fauns largely summon Barghest for this reason - so they can be a physical shield whenever harm comes a Faun's way. Having no will of their own, the Barghest have no choice but to be sued as their Faun master sees fit.

Reborn as a spirit after dying in Avalon, they could be said to be for faeries what wisps are to humans. The faeries have no culture of showing respect to their dead, so they are not honoured. After some research, they seem unable to release negative vibes no matter how much they are tormented, so most faeries find little use for them.

There are instances of some simply appearing out of thin air, wandering the forest aimlessly, but they are rarely tied to the earthly world for too long.


  • A barghest is a a ghost or elf believed to be an omen of misfortune in English folklore.
