Céloche,[1] also known as Leviathan,[2] is a mechanical marine boss who appears in Rayman 3. He is fought underwater in the Land of the Livid Dead and is presumably controlled by a Hoodlum.

Céloche's first and only appearance is in the third final part of the Land of the Livid Dead. After Rayman travels through a network of underwater tunnels decorated with Teensie carvings, he ends up at a large, round, underwater cavern, into which Céloche jumps from above. At first he attacks by opening his mouth and releasing a metal fish which Rayman cannot see for the rest of the battle; this is the device that disperses the homing missiles which follow Rayman around and damage him if he does not avoid them. To defeat Céloche, Rayman must let the missiles follow him and then do an underwater somersault while in-between the missiles and Céloche, which causes them to miss and hit him instead of Rayman. This is reminiscent of the method by which Rayman defeats the Grolgoth in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2. Céloche can also fire a horizontally-moving laser beam at Rayman, which Rayman can dodge with a somersault. Céloche's powerful turret is also capable of firing blasts very similar to those used by Armaguiddons later in the game.

When defeated, Céloche collapses onto the lake bed. The metal fish spins around and explodes.


  • Céloche's battle theme is a remixed version of the music played when Rayman is underwater, before the fight begins.
  • It is highly likely that Céloche's design was inspired by that of the Martian tripod from H.G. Wells's classic science fiction novel, The War of the Worlds. Both are gigantic, mechanical tripods; both are piloted by antagonists; both use a Heat-Ray weapon; and both are capable of traversing both land and water.
  • Céloche's 'eyes', the 'face' on its turret, the 'eyes' on the metal fish and details on the side of the laser cannon use a texture from Rayman 2, identical to the portholes found in Robo-Pirate strongholds.
  • Whenever Céloche's turret recoils after firing a shot, boxing gloves similar to those used by Slapdashes appear on the muzzles for a frame.
