Sun demons are fire-themed tier-3 demons. They are fast, boast several resistances, and have powerful fiery melee attacks, making them a threat to characters who encounter them without the right preparations. They can be found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells, and guarding their entrances.
Some monsters will summon them through the Summon Demon spell.
Tips & Tricks
