The Marble gargoyle is a superior variant of the gargoyle. It has a chance of spawning after purchasing the unlock Bigger and Badder for 150 Slayer reward points from any Slayer master.

Unlike most other superior monsters, marble gargoyles use two combat styles: melee and ranged. Both its standard attacks can hit very high, though they are somewhat inaccurate. It is recommended to pray melee.

In combat, the marble gargoyle will occasionally launch a grey ball towards the player. If hit by the projectile, it will inflict up to 38 damage and immobilise the player for a few seconds. The message box states "You have been trapped in stone!" when this occurs. Players are able to avoid this attack by moving at least one tile away from their original position once the projectile is launched.

Trivia

  • Originally, the marble gargoyle appeared simply as a recoloured gargoyle, and received a graphical update on 23 February 2017, along with the rest of the superior slayer monsters. Despite this, it looked much like a standard gargoyle, apart from having a bit more detail on its wings. Its special attack also consisted of two squiggly purple lines resembling a Monk of Zamorak's Magic attack, which were hard to see because they were small.
    • However, the marble gargoyle received a more comprehensive graphical update (including unique animations) on 1 November 2017 as part of Old School Content Poll 55. This also changed the appearance of its binding projectile.
