Catablepon are creatures that appear to be green bulls with reptilian tails. They are found on the third level of the Stronghold of Security. They cast the magic spell Weaken (which appears as a spraying white sparkle) to drain up to 15% of their opponent's maximum Strength level.

Players are not advised to train on these with Melee, as Weaken can drain their Strength quite significantly, which will affect the player's experience rates in turn, unless Strength potions or Restore potions are used (you can also use the Protect from Magic prayer). They can use melee and magic attacks often and cast Weaken at the same time. After the spell has decreased 10 Strength levels, Catablepon will stop casting Weaken. Ranged or magic attacks are recommended for those attempting to kill Catablepons. On the west side of northwestern room, there is a ranged and mage safe spot behind the "Stinking tendrils" available. Walk into the western door and the western most tile behind the tendrils. Another safe spot is in the same room. Enter from the southern door and stand against the wall beside the door.
