The Red Devil is a Hardmode enemy that spawns in The Underworld after any Mechanical Boss has been defeated. It is considered a more difficult version of the Demon, having more health and dealing much more damage. Similar to a Demon, it drops a magic weapon resembling its mean of attack, the Unholy Trident.
While the contact damage of a Red Devil is comparably low, its trident attack is capable of dealing large amounts of damage even to players in endgame armor. The tridents are fired in the same burst-like pattern that Demons fire scythes in, although they are slower and move at a constant velocity.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Red Devils will spawn prior to Hardmode if the Mechanical Bosses are defeated prior to the Wall of Flesh.
- Due to their relatively low knockback resistance, they can be easily stun-locked with rapid-fire weapons, such as Megashark or Chain Gun. That still allows them to fire tridents, however.
