Weapons and Abilities


Although normally harmless, Nagapokos could swarm and restrain Klonoa and the others in Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament if Garlen commanded it, although Guntz was able to shoot several down to free Klonoa.


A large machine which Garlen pilots in Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament. It is a big machine with a Dragon-Shaped head, gears on it's shoulders, wrists and neck, and a lack of feet, which serves as the final boss for the game. It's attacks are firing missiles with Nagapoko faces on them (and Moos on the inside), firing gears that could either fly in the air or destroy the ground of the stage, and jumping into the air in an attempt to land on, and crush Klonoa. As a last resort, the head can fly on it's own and fire a powerful beam cannon from it's mouth. The head is the only weak spot.

Garlen Bomber

Garlen and Super Garlen's Special Attack in Klonoa: Beach Volleyball. After the ball lands on the other side of the court (After Garlen/Super Garlen hits it), a bomb falls and explodes.


Klonoa 2:Dream Champ Tournament

Garlen hosts the tournament for "Greatest Hero" and invites several characters to join. In reality, this was all a plan to help build Garlen's Mechanical Empire.

He turns the losers of the tournament into gears and held Lolo hostage to cause Klonoa to get serious in his match with Guntz and promised to release Lolo if he won.

After Klonoa won, he demands Garlen release Lolo and the other competitors but the latter instead states he won't change Lolo but attempts to turn Klonoa into the Electronic Brain for his empire.

However, Klonoa is saved by Guntz and goes after Garlen. In the end, Garlen is defeated by Klonoa, and is later arrested by Suiryu after everyone else reverts back to their normal selves.

Klonoa Beach Volleyball

Garlen is one of the playable characters in Klonoa Beach Volleyball. When Garlen wins the tournament, Huepow claims that he only won because of his machine (because he's super when he's Super Garlen), and decided to restart the match with everyone in machines (or super), and Garlen is easily defeated.

Klonoa Heroes

Garlen works with Janga and Joka to make sure Klonoa and his allies don't interfere with their plans.
