While Riku is searching for Judge Frollo, he gets ambushed by Wargoyle in the Outskirts of La Cité des Cloches. The beast chases Riku to the Mill, where Riku finally finds Frollo, attempting to punish the inhabitants for harboring gypsies, and Phoebus, who tries to stop him. When Wargoyle appears, Riku realizes that it was created from Frollo's darkness, but the insane judge claims that he was granted the beast as an agent of "righteous judgment" to destroy the gypsies forever. When Phoebus attempts to stop Frollo from leaving, Wargoyle easily overpowers him and leaves the soldier badly injured. After Riku tracks Frollo to the top of Notre Dame, the judge summons Wargoyle to eliminate him, but Riku defeats it after a grueling battle. Wargoyle's wings ended up being shattered and destroyed, and it falls into the fires below before crossing into Sora's side of the world.
On Sora's side, when he attempts to follow Frollo while Frollo chases down Quasimodo and Esmeralda into Notre Dame, he is stopped by the now wingless Wargoyle, which crashes into the square in front of the church. Sora manages to defeat the rampaging Nightmare, then proceeds into Notre Dame.

- Wargoyle is often considered to be one of the most disappointing bosses in Dream Drop Distance. Many who played Dream Drop Distance wanted to fight Frollo, the boss fight is one of the more difficult bosses, especially since it's one of the first bosses, and many complained that the music does not fit.
