Bats are enemies seen mostly in cave areas. When first encountered, they can be seen sleeping on the ceiling. However, if Gale gets too close or kills another nearby Bat, they'll wake up and fly to where Gale was when they awoke. Regardless of whether or not they hit Gale, the Bats will keep flying until they leave the screen. If a Bat flies off the screen, it doesn't count as a death and the Bat will respawn when Gale reenters the room it was in.
