Aku Gory has high health, insane DPS and less knockbacks than Gory Black or Angelic Gory, but is slower than both variants. His Savage Blow ability only has a 10% chance to activate, but it can be strong enough to cause a dent in your frontlines.
Treat him like would any variant of Gory. High DPS units such as Paris Cat can take care of him easily if stacked, but tanks are not recommended due to his rapid attacks. His range is quite low, so using crowd-controllers that outrange him such as Thaumaturge Cat to make him less dangerous is a good choice.

He was supposed to have found his true calling, but he
lost his job soon after the dark business problem* was discovered.
Recently, he's been trying to turn his luck around as a video streamer.
*The "dark business problem" was a scandal involving multiple Japanese comedians in June 2019.

- His Japanese name, Hell Gorilla (ヘルゴリラー Herugorirā), is likely a reference to the Dragon Quest monster Barbatos, who is known as Hellbattler (ヘルバトラー Herubatorā) in Japan. This is because "gorilla" spelled in katakana would normally just be ゴリラ, without the ー (chōonpu); by adding the ー, it actually translates to Hell Goriller. And, of course, there's the fact that both are bulky blue gargoyle-like demons.
- His description confirms that he used to be an Angelic Gory but got fired due to multiple mistakes. He can thus be considered a "Fallen Angel", which is the origin of Satan in Catholicism.
- His Japanese description saying he was fired for a dark business problem but came back as a video streamer seems to reference Hiroyuki Miyasako, who, along with several other comedians, temporarily lost his job soon after he was found to have been attending yakuza parties, but later resurfaced as a regular YouTuber. This scandal has been dubbed (roughly translated) "the comedians' dark business problem".
