Enemy list.
I don't think it was actually used in the game normally, but since it appears it CAN appear, might as well try to add the list in.
Enabled by using PAR code 7E037Exx.
Names enabled by bit 1, bit 0 displays enemy HP (bottom numbers), bit 7 displays upper numbers (unknown use).

I think it's supposed to be Deev/Div (a Persian demon). I remember this creature being mentioned in Arabian Nights.  ;D

ホムンクルス    Homunculus

Off topic, but I wonder if the Secret of the Stars final boss, Homncruse, is a mistranslation of the same thing? (skip to around 2 minutes in to see the second form)

(very possible, they also got Kraken wrong, and he's certainly much better known! :D )

Possible. I'd need to see the original. A homunculus is, at least in terms of most fantasy literature, an artificially-created human being, usually a body without a soul. Never played more than an hour of SotS so I wouldn't know anything about its boss's history.

Yes, it is a fit.

I don't remember the late-game plot too well, so it's a good thing I took screenshots.
Spoiler:
though it doesn't seem consistent whether Dr. Parakless created Homncruse entirely or if he mutated his own real son

Some of the already-done ones are incorrect or just misspelled:

ギャザー        This looks like Gather rather than Gazer
バックベアード  This looks like Backbeard (joke off of Blackbeard) rather than Buckbeard
スノーウぃドー  Snow Widow There's no "n" in the second word
キャタピラー    Caterpiller  Caterpillar
ガスト            This is Ghast, not Gust
はんぎょじん    Half Giant (rather than Mini-Giant)     
おおかみおとこ  Werewolf might work better than Big Wolfman
ウぃッチドクターWitchdocter      Witchdoctor

I'd also render まおうのきし as Evil Knight or Black Knight, unless the enemy is specific to the plot. はかいのリュウ would sound better as Chaos Dragon or Ruin Dragon, too.

EDIT: Here are some of the untranslated ones:

マシュマニトウ    Mush-manitou   
ラルバ         L'alba (The Dawn)     
フぁハン   Fachan
てつわんまじん  I'd go with Strongman     
ケイオス        Chaos? (Yes, that's Chaos)
ソンデナス    Sondennath
バズート  Bast (Maybe?)

Here are the ones I couldn't figure out:

カリメネス     
クラジぇール
アミイ
シスジック   
バミュー
スカルカプーラ
スフぃアテリー

Isn't this a merman (半魚人)? Or rather "half man/half fish"?

You're right! I didn't even notice that. "Kyojin" (not "Gyojin") is Giant.

てつわんまじん implies that it's not a "man". So it would be something like "Strong Demon" or "Buff Genie" or something, depending on the sprite.

Not to be picky, but I never liked "demon king" as a translation of "maou" when used as a title. I'm fine with its use as a noun, but "Demon King Galdea" seems excessively wordy; it doesn't sound like something a native English speaker would use.

"Lord Galdea" would probably work. You could leave "Demon King Knight" alone, though.

Tyrant Galdea
Tyrant Knight

I've always been fond of "Lord of Darkness" for 魔王 myself.
