Malebranche - 01

The Malebranche threaten Virgil and Dante, portrayed by Gustave Doré.

Barbariccia is a demon who appears in Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. In the poem, he is part of a demonic troop called the Malebranche, who guard the fifth bolgia of Malebolge. The Malebolge is found in the eighth circle of Hell, Fraud, where corrupt politicians are immersed in burning pitch.


Barbariccia is a purple demon who wields a spear. He looks and behaves much like Draghignazzo and Malacoda, although he's the weakest of them.

He is a lesser demon who may be destroyed very easily if Soma can reach him. He flies very quickly through the air. When it spots Soma, he will float backward and then swoop down at him with great speed. Although he may look dangerous, he's actually quite weak and Soma shouldn't find much trouble in defeating him once he comes in range.
