Thing type 1000, Gargoyle, is a pushable Thing that can be stood upon, pushed around and will crush players if it lands on top of them. It is a solid statue of a gargoyle that is frequently used as decoration in ancient, medieval, or mystical-themed levels, most notably in Deep Sea Zone. As seen in that zone, the gargoyle and other pushables can be used for puzzles that require the player to push the Thing onto a certain spot in order to continue. These effects are done with linedef type 314 and linedef type 315.
Checking the Ambush flag makes the gargoyle non-pushable. Checking the Special flag makes it lighter, so the player can push it a bit more easily and gargoyles can bounce off each other and off walls. Checking both Special and Ambush makes the gargoyle drop straight down when falling, stopping it from sliding after landing on the floor.
