The Serpent Gargoyles (sometimes also referred to as Stone Dragons due to their ability to spit fire) are a sub boss in the Tomb Raider Chronicles level Trajan's Markets.

These three gargoyles guard the Philosopher's Gate in a garden in Rome, Italy. They are made of stone but come to life when Larson Conway and Lara Croft disturb the gate. They fling Larson across the courtyard, but the fall does not kill him.

Lara has to destroy the gargoyles to advance to the Colosseum.

Powers

Each serpent does not move from the door of the gate, showing their loyalty to protecting the Philosopher's Stone. They can move as shown in the cut scene before Lara fights them but choose not to during the battle.

Each serpent can shoot fireballs. You can see the fireball brewing in a serpents mouth before they shoot it, giving you time to prepare to manoeuvre. If Lara is hit by a fireball, she will be set on fire and will die in a few seconds if she had a full bar of health. If set on fire, Lara must run to a nearby pool of water quickly before the flames consume her. The serpents will also lash out if Lara gets too close.

Strategy

By jumping sideways while shooting at them you can avoid the deadly flame bolts. Even when they recharge, they are very weak at that point. Shotgun Wideshot Ammo tends to be very effective against them.
