Flying
A larger cousin of the common imp, with a fiendish grin and two short wings sprouting from its shoulders. They favor barbed tridents, often taunting their victims as they prod them from afar then nimbly retreat from pursuit.

Useful Info

Red devils are fire-themed tier-4 demons, usually found wielding tridents or demon tridents. Any time they attack while adjacent to their victim, there is a chance that they will hop back a space, keeping them within range for their reaching weapons but away from you. Although aggravating, they lack magic, and are generally only a threat if their weapon is well-branded or if they happen to generate in an early vault. They can be found in the Volcano, the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells (primarily Gehenna). Some monsters may also summon them through the Summon Demon spell.

Useful Info

  • Check their gear after killing them, as a good demon trident can be a very useful polearm (though summoned devils will never drop anything).
  • Be careful not to kill them in lava, as you will lose their weapon, which may be a good demon trident.

History

Prior to 0.13, red devils would stand their ground while attacking you, making them much less difficult to chase down.
