Flags Flying
A muscular horned humanoid figure originating from some frigid hell. It swoops through the air on powerful wings, taking sadistic joy from harrying those who would try to flee its grasp.

“From the sad marine decanter I then drew the cork. Instanter
Out there jumped a little devil, blue in colour; and before
I could speak to the new comer (for I never was struck dumber),
Down upon my empty rummer, straight the little devil bore,
Right into my empty tumbler straight the little devil bore,
Squatted, grinned and nothing more.

There the little imp sat grinning at me while my head went spinning,
So that had I not sat down I should have fallen upon the floor;
‘Though thy looks be somewhat evil,’ said I ”tell me thou blue devil,
Wherefore holdest though thy revel in the glass that held before
Much the more agreeable spirit,—mizzle! leave me as before.“
Then the imp said ‘Never-more!’

Though I felt uncommon funky, still this answer put my monkey
Up, and at the small blue devil in an undertone I swore.
Then I said I must be dreaming, although broad awake I'm seeming;
Doubtless I shall have a screaming morning headache — what a bore:
Salmon I will eat no more.”
-J.T.S, “The Blue Imp”, _Melbourne Punch_. Sept. 4, 1856.

Useful Info

Blue devils are weak flying tier-4 demons that resist cold and poison, but which are vulnerable to fire. They don't hit particularly hard, but they have a swooping attack with range 4, allowing them to move past intervening creatures and the target itself, land on the opposite side, and immediately perform a melee attack. They can often be found in Cocytus or the Ice Cave.

Tips & Tricks

None needed, though when found in the Ice Cave, be on the lookout for powerful ice devils and ice fiends.


Prior to 0.13, blue devils were simple melee attackers.
