Prefect Charyb (チャリブ・ザ・ギゾイド Charibu za Gizoido?, lit. "Charyb the Gizoid") is one of the two prefect Gizoids of the Nocturnus Clan, the other being Scylla.


Charyb is a blue Gizoid that is built much differently than the others; he is able to fight underwater and use water-based attacks. When Charyb is in the water, he is almost invincible (taking only one point of damage per hit despite the strength of an attack). His POW moves are Immunity, Regenerate and Mighty Slash.


When Sonic and Tails' group tried to fight him, the condition of his lair made him impossible to stop. When Knuckles' and Shade's group took out Scylla, they drained the water from Charyb's lair, allowing them to defeat him. He is more serious than his partner Scylla.

  • Prefect Charyb is named after the water beast Charybdis from Greek mythology, who was Poseidon's alleged daughter, and was turned into a bladder-like monster as punishment for conspiring with Poseidon to steal land from her uncle, Zeus.
  • Even though Nestor said that Gizoids were never named, this Gizoid was given a name.
  • Despite being nearly invincible while underwater, Charyb is weak to the Water element.
  • One of the sections of the Twilight Cage is also named after Charyb; it is called Sector Charybdis (Charyb for short).
