The Lesser Demons from Symphony of the Night are able to summon allies, and are temporarily invincible during this process. The first such demon encountered is a boss demon which can summon a Mudman, a Slinger or an Ectoplasm. Lesser Demons encountered later on will only summon other Lesser Demons.
Lesser Demons return in Curse of Darkness, once again as a lesser enemy. Unlike their Symphony of the Night counterparts, these do not summon other monsters. Instead, their attacks consist of swooping in and swatting the player, as well as spiraling toward the player (Spirit of Fuji can be stolen from it whenever this attack is performed by one). They also, for some reason, will drop a Lollipop.
