The '''Grolgoth''' is a giant robot which [[Admiral Razorbeard]] uses in an attempt to put a stop to [[Rayman]] at [[the Crow's Nest]].

For its right hand, it has a cannon, which fires [[helicopter bombAdmiral Razorbeard]]s that purchases it from [[Raymanthe General]] will have to shoot back at the Grolgoth in order to hurt it. The other hand has a hook, which sees no use in the battle. The Grolgoth can also shoot large energy balls from the soles of its feet.
==Final battle, first phase==
[[Admiral Razorbeard]] places the Grolgoth at the top of [[the Buccaneer]]'s mast. He also places [[Globox]], dangling over the edge of the ship from a large elevator's antenna. Before Razorbeard shoots Globox to his doom, [[Rayman]] appears through the elevator, shouting that Razorbeard shall leave Globox alone. Razorbeard takes advantage of Rayman's position and shoots down the elevator. As Razorbeard believes himself victorious, Rayman pulls himself back up on the platform. After checking to ensure that Globox is safe, the fight begins.
The Grolgoth is immune to [[Rayman]]'s [[shot]]s, and starts with heavy attacks such as shooting [[helicopter bomb]]s, fast energy balls and trying to jump on Rayman to squash him. Rayman will have to shoot the helicopter bombs back at the Grolgoth, but straight on, otherwise the Grolgoth will evade them.
==Final battle, second phase==
[[File:Grolgoth.jpg|thumb|320px|The final encounter]]
After Rayman has hit the Grolgoth three times, a cutscene starts in which Razorbeard make the Grolgoth jump on Rayman and squash him, but the jump cuts short, causing the Grolgoth to break the platform on which the fight is occurring. Both Rayman and the Grolgoth fall down into the heart of [[the Buccaneer]], a chamber filled with boiling lava.
[[Rayman]] is saved by [[Ly the Fairy|Ly]], who sends a [[Silver Lum]]-like ball of energy to catch Rayman in mid-air, and lower him safely to a small pipe sticking out of the lava, on which a friendly [[Flying Shell]] has been stationed. Ly's face appears in Rayman's mind, and she informs him that [[Polokus]] has eliminated all of [[Robo-Pirate Army|the Robo-Pirates]] on the land and that the slaves have escaped (with the help of Rayman, seen in the PS1, PS2 and Dreamcast version of the game). Rayman sees that [[Admiral Razorbeard|Razorbeard]] has survived the fall as well, with the Grolgoth clinging between two metal pipes going up the chamber's walls.
[[Rayman]] flies on the [[Flying Shell]], both having to find ammo hidden inside the chamber and avoid the homing energy-balls that [[Admiral Razorbeard|Razorbeard]] shoots after him. Rayman must use the ammo to shoot energy-balls at the Grolgoth's hands, causing it to slip and fall into the lava. When the Grolgoth is struggling to get out of the lava, it loses some health; Rayman can damage it more by shooting at it while it's still in the lava. Should Rayman get hit just once during this phase of the battle, his [[Flying Shell]] will explode and the battle begins as new from the beginning of Phase 2. When Razorbeard reaches 20% health, he will climb up to the top of the chamber and temporarily raise the level of lava. This can happen several times. When Razorbeard's health reaches 0%, the Grolgoth stalls and falls into the lava. Razorbeard crawls out, dragging an escape pod with him. Before abandoning [[the Buccaneer]], he says: "I've saved one last little surprise for you", and presses a button on a remote-control device, triggering the Grolgoth's self-destruct mechanism. Razorbeard in his escape pod flies straight up the mast of the ship, through [[the Crow's Nest]] and to safety. The Grolgoth detonates, blowing [[the Buccaneer]] to pieces and apparently killing Rayman. Razorbeard continues flying upwards until he reaches space.

Presumably this Grolgoth is a different unit to the one which was destroyed at the end of ''[[Rayman 2: The Great Escape|Rayman 2]]''. It appears only in [[Heart of the Ancients]], the final level of the game (excluding bonus levels). As in ''[[Rayman 2]]'', this Grolgoth's battle consists of two separate phases. In the first phase, the Grolgoth is fought in a manner not dissimilar from those of the bosses in [[Rayman 1|the original ''Rayman'' game]]; [[Rayman ]] must avoid the Grolgoth's alternating high and low energy blasts while punching its metal [[helicopter bomb]]s back at it in order to damage it. After being damaged 5 times the Grolgoth laughs at [[Rayman]] and passes over to the second phase. In the that second phase, [[Rayman ]] and the Grolgoth continue their battle in a spacious underground dungeon. [[Rayman ]] rides a [[flying shell]], and must manoeuvre it to trick the Grolgoth's homing missiles into striking the Grolgoth itself; this is also how [[Rayman ]] defeats the Grolgoth in the PlayStation version of ''[[Rayman 2]]''. Once defeated, this Grolgoth collapses to the ground, destroyed. [[Admiral Razorbeard|Razorbeard ]] is not seen again. <gallery widths="240px" heights="160px" class="sprite">Grolgoth GBA.PNG|The first phase of the battle between [[Rayman]] and Grolgoth in the [[Heart of the Ancients]].Grolgoth GBA 2.png|The second phase of the battle between [[Rayman]] and Grolgoth in the [[Heart of the Ancients]].</gallery> {{clear}} ==Gallery==<gallery widths="300px" heights="180px">Grolgoth(RR Japan).jpg|The Grolgoth in the Japanese version of ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''.Grolgoth(RR Japan 2).jpg|The Grolgoth in the Japanese version of ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''.</gallery>
==Trivia==
*In the PC [[Rayman Revolution|and PS2 versions]] Japanese version of ''[[Rayman 2: The Great Escape|Rayman 2Revolution]]'', there is a minor continuity error regarding phase 2: the location is too small. In the cutscene, the place was gigantic, and the Grolgoth was very big as well. Both [[Rayman]] and the [[flying shell]] were small enough to stand on the sticking-out pipe. After the beginning of the battle, this same pipe is even smaller (in width) than Rayman, half yellow and the Grolgoth is suddenly half the size as in the cutscene. In the cutscene that plays after defeating the Grolgoth, everything is back to its original size againblack.*A diagram of the The Grolgoth can be found on 's design was inspired by a table Robot Soldier from Hayao Miyazaki's 1987 film ''Laputa: Castle in [[the Pirate Factory]], an area exclusive to Sky''[[Rayman Revolution]].<ref>YouTube, 'Devs Play S2E09', https://youtu.
