The Demon (デーモン Dēmon?) is a recurring enemy in the Castlevania series. It is an inhabitant of Hell, summoned to oppose vampire hunters.


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"[1].

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.


Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Although it is called "Demon", the enemy shares its sprite with the Arc Demon from Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. Some of its stats (HP, ATK and EXP given) are also the exact same.

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.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
