Gradius Rugul
Rugal is an enemy in Gradius, the second one to be encountered.

Attack Patterns

Rugals often come in groups of three, and though slow compared to other enemies, will home in on the Vic Viper, even turning around to get to it, and don't shoot. They also come in a red variety that drops a capsule when destroyed.
