The Demon (and the Arch Demon on Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DS versionDS) is an enemy found in The Underworld. It attacks by summoning volleys of four spinning purple blades that accelerate towards the player, which are similar those fired by the Demon Scythe spell that it has a chance to drop. These blades have a chance to inflict Darkness and are stopped by any block, but cannot be destroyed with weapons.

Like other Underworld enemies, Demons are immune to lava. A rarer variation of the Demon is the Voodoo Demon.
