Demons are a kind of denizen of Hell resembling the classic, popular Christian depiction of evil entities such as gargoyles or even Satan himself: long horns, claws, endowed with bat-like wings, and having supernatural abilities associated with fire and black magic. The word "demon" comes from the Greek daimōn, meaning "divine power", "deity" or "spirit".
Although the series has a long list of demons and devils with different attributes and hierarchic positions such as the Arc Demon or the Lesser Demon, these are solely called "Demon" and carry no other adjective.
It moves by flying erratically above the player and attacks by either swooping down with its clawed feet or by summoning three fireballs from within a magic circle that target the player upon launching.
It has 666 HP and yields 666 EXP points, referencing the Number of the Beast.
Different from Portrait of Ruin, here it receives a new sprite. Yet, due to appearing much earlier in the game, the Demon is weaker and has been stripped from its fireball-summoning attack.
