Information

Background

A Fire Demon is first encountered in Cyclops' Fortress fighting alongside an Elite Conehead. Their second appearance is in Lava World, where they are the primary enemies. At certain points in the level, Killing Fire Demons will make them drop a sandwich, which are needed to fight the Volcano and can be helpful against the Dragon and Sock Puppet. The sandwiches are also needed to access Industrial Castle.

Involvement

Fire Demons make up the main population of Lava World. It is also assumed that they serve the Cyclops, as one of them can be seen assisting an Elite Conehead in fending off the player in Cyclops' Fortress. It is also assumed that Fire Demons cause no harm, but defend their area from any attackers.

Description

Fire Demons are draconic in appearance. They have yellow eyes with oversized wings, and their big teeth are always shown. Fire Demon's element is completely comprised of Fire, similar to Orange Knight. Fire Demons are one of the main antagonists of Back Off Barbarian, along with Iceskimos and Barbarians.











Magic

Splash Attack

"Flaming Pillars"

Element: Fire

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (max 7)

Damage/Hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5 + Fire DoT

Use 360 RT.png360 Y.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. Flame bursts up from the ground in front of you. Each upgrade level adds another burst of flame in front of the previous ones, up to a total of seven. This is more powerful, or about as powerful, than the Thorny Vines Splash Attack because it nearly has the same amount of hits at the same speed with damage over time. It's a great boss slaying Splash Attack, and it's very useful for heavy enemies, who take normal knockback from all fire based attacks.


Magic Projectile

"Fireball"

Element: Fire

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Fire DoT

Use 360 RT.png360 B.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Circle.png to perform. A ball of fire trailing orange smoke. The Fire DoT effect adds a nice bonus, with the downside being the Fire element itself, meaning some enemies will resist it. Equivalent to Orange Knight's "Fireball" Magic Projectile.

Air Projectile

"Fireball"

Element: Fire

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Fire DoT

Use 360 A.png, 360 RT.png360 Y.png /PS3 Cross.png, PS3 R2.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. A ball of fire trailing orange smoke. The fire DoT effect adds a nice bonus, with the downside being the fire element itself, meaning some enemies will resist it. Equivalent to Orange Knight's "Fireball" Air Projectile.

An advanced use of Juggling, named Spellweaving, can use this Air Projectile for flashy techniques.

Elemental Infusion

"Flame Engulfment"

Element: Fire

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Base Melee Damage + Fire DoT

Use 360 X.png360 X.png360 X.png360 Y.png / PS3 Square.pngPS3 Square.pngPS3 Square.pngPS3 Triangle.png to perform. Engulfs the enemy in flames with a smack of damage over time. Combined with the large amount of enemies with Fire weaknesses, this is a powerful attack.

Magic Jump

"Flame Jump"

Element: Fire

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Fire DoT

Use 360 RT.png360 A.png / PS3 R2.pngPS3 Cross.png to perform. Leaps up with yellow and orange flame billowing out below, lighting enemies on fire. Equivalent to Orange Knight's "Flame Rise" Magic Jump.

Strategy

Overview

Fire Demon is an incredible character with high unmatched capabilities, barring the other characters presumably having more comfortable, desirable capabilities, such as crowd control, crowd clearing, juggling, etc. Fire Demon has a fantastic movepool due to his options that makes him overall, the 2nd best boss slayer in the game. Typically, a Fire Demon player tends to capitalize Magic at some point in time, due to how incredibly potent it is in said certain roles. After the hurdles of stat attributing subside, Fire Demon becomes an absolute killing machine that faces little to no problems in the game. The deal breaker of Orange Knight's fantastic Unlock Path.

Castle Crashers
