Tiny Devils, also known as Mini Devils, are enemies in the Castlevania series. They are small demons who make up for their size in ferocity and malevolence.


Tiny Devils are Imp-like demons that float about and are very hard to hit. They are differentiated from Imps by their red color scheme (Imps are blue) and usually come unarmed, attacking instead by casting homing energy vortexes. They are small, fast, and almost only vulnerable when they charge up their attacks, as they stand still at the given moment.


Castlevania: Harmony of DissonanceEdit

Tiny Devils replace the Imps from Symphony of the Night, and as such, they come wielding a spear with which to stab their enemies. They are only a minor nuisance and should not give too much trouble unless other enemies are in the area.

A group of Tiny Devils conform one of Pazuzu's attacks, where he will suddenly stand still with his arms crossed and summon four of these little demons to distract Juste while he prepares his next move.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

The first Tiny Devil can be encountered very early in the game, right at the beginning of the Underground Reservoir. They start becoming more frequent once Soma reaches the Chapel and the Study. Instead of attacking with a spear like in the previous game, they now have the ability to cast Tri-Cutter, a spell that creates three energy vortexes with slight homing capabilities and which would become their trademark move for subsequent games. As expected, gaining dominance of their soul grants Soma this very same ability, which can be very useful in the early game.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

The Mini Devil in Dawn of Sorrow, instead of being described as a mischievous enemy, is depicted as "a little demon with a big heart". These little foes fly around Soma while firing their energy blades at him. Catching a Mini Devil soul enables Soma to summon one for 5 MP per second. It fires the same energy blades and locks on to an enemy.

An interesting note is that at level 5+, the Mini Devil is revealed to be female. It looks like a faerie with little horns and a tail, keeping the Mini Devil look. She wears just a few garments and fires red hearts that cut and charm some enemies with Curse. Their rate of fire is also increased.

The Mini Devil also combos with Flying Guillotine (Guillotiner). When Soma casts one, the Mini Devil will cast another in front of it. With Power Throw (Skeleton Ape) equipped, both Soma and the Mini Devil will cast their guillotine further.

The Mini Devil also responds to touch screen commands, allowing players to move it to hard to reach places and attack enemies.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

The Mini Devil is a common enemy found throughout the castle. It is very hard to hit with a regular weapon due to the fact that it just flies away and attacks from a distance. The only good time to hit it with a regular weapon is when it is charging up an attack. Be careful as the charging might finish quickly and it has some slight tracking capabilities.
