Hexgourd (also refered to as Death Pumpkin or Deathly Pumpkin) is a recurring enemy in the series, and is part of a trio of pumpkin FOEs, often associated with each other and sometimes even fought together.
Similarly to the other pumpkins, this enemy boasts huge defenses, and has a variety of attacks that inflict binds or stauts effects.

|A hellish pumpkin demon. It catches explorers off guard and then binds them with its vines.|

|Resistance||Slash, Pierce, Crush, Fire, Frost|
Hexgourd is an FOE found in B2F of the Hall of Darkness, seen patrolling a large damage tile maze with its counterparts, the Trigourd and Flygourd. When any one member gets into a battle, the rest of the trio turn aggressive and try to join the fight. Despite its strength, it tends to play a bit more of a supporting role to Trigourd with a tendency to disable your party.
The Thorny Bone, its normal drop, is used to forge the Narcoleps, a powerful knife that can put enemies to sleep. Its conditional drop, the Pale Bone, drops rarely, and is one of the ingredients used to forge the Kerykeion, one of the best staves in the game.

Deathly Pumpkin (Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold) Edit
Hexgourd, renamed as Deathly Pumpkin, is fought as a random encounter on the third floor of the Ginnungagap.
In combat, it can use Confuse Vine to inflict confusion on a character row. This, combined with its high defenses, make it a very dangerous enemy, especially since you can't escape this floor until you complete it, and it can be found along other dangerous enemies. Avoiding confrontation is ideal if you lack resistance against confusion.
