Captain N Wiki

Medusa is a character in Captain N: The Game Master.


Medusa is a gorgon who resides on Mount Icarus in Videoland. She is loosely based on the main antagonist of Kid Icarus.


Medusa was the guardian of the Power Items, which were capable of destroying the Three Sacred Treasures. She was even uglier than Mother Brain and could turn anyone who looked at her to stone. She used her beautiful voice to trick Simon Belmont into looking at her, but Medusa herself was turned to stone when she saw her reflection in Kid Icarus' Mirror Shield. Her petrified victims were then restored to normal.


Medusa makes a small, but crucial appearance in "When Friends Fall Out". Appearing in a flashback, she cast a spell on Kid Icarus, setting the events of the story in motion. Though not referred to by name, simply known as an "Evil Gorgon", her design is identical to her artwork for the game.
