Fire Demon is an enemy and also one of the 31 Playable Characters in Castle Crashers. His magical attacks are Fire and his starting weapon is the Black Morning Star.

Fire Demon's specialties are damage over time, advanced boss slaying, knockback crowd control, basic juggling, elemental combo locking, and crowd clearing. 

Information Edit

Background Edit

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. Killing Fire Demons in Lava World also grants the player sandwiches at certain points in the level, 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 Edit

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.

Description Edit

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.

MagicEdit

Splash Attack

"Flaming Pillars"

Element: Fire (+Fire DoT effect)

Max Hits: 1 per upgrade level (max 7)

Damage/hit: Base Magic Damage x 0.5

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.

This attack is among the most broken, possibly the second or third most powerful attacks in the game. The reason for this is because it's a reskin of Brute and Snakey's Splash Attack, with slightly more range, but slightly less hits on bosses, which is already thought to be one of the best, but this attack adds fire damage over time on top of that speed, which makes Fire Demon a powerful character.

Magic Projectile

"Fireball"

Element: Fire (+Fire DoT effect)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

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. Uses a yellow and orange smoke color scheme as opposed to the yellow and black smoke colors of Orange Knight's "Fireball", but otherwise the same spell.

Air Projectile

"Fireball"

Element: Fire (+Fire DoT effect)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

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. Uses a yellow and orange smoke color scheme as opposed to the yellow and black smoke colors of Orange Knight's "Fireball", but otherwise the same spell. If you know how to use one of the levitation combos, you can spellweave Air Projectiles, where you abuse the mechanic of staying in the air for a long time.

Elemental Infusion

"Flame Engulfment"

Element: Fire (+Fire DoT effect)

Damage: Base Magic Damage + Base Melee Damage

Use Xbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button XXbox360 Button Y / PS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 SquarePS3 Triangle to perform. Engulfs enemies in flames, with a nice hit of Damage over Time. Combined with the large amount of enemies with weaknesses to fire, this combo can be very powerful.

Magic Jump

"Fire Jump"

Element: Fire (+Fire DoT effect)

Damage: Base Magic Damage

Leaps up with yellow and orange flame billowing out below, lighting enemies on fire. The same spell as Orange Knight's "Fire Jump" except graphically (the knight's "Fire Jump" uses yellow flame with black smoke and this is yellow with orange smoke).

Strategy Edit

Overview Edit

Fire Demon is an incredible character with high unmatched capabilities, barring the other characters presumably having more comfortable, desirable capabilities, such as boss slaying, 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.

Story Mode Strategy Edit

To take advantage of Fire Demon's Magic, one must decide to choose the appropriate combinations to maximize the damage output or potential that Fire Demon has in Story Mode. This varies from player to player, but the greatest options include Gold Skull Mace + Snoot, Chainsaw + Snoot or Piggy or Hawkster, Snakey Mace + Piggy or Hawkster, Chainsaw + Snoot or Piggy or Hawkster, and NG Golden Sword + Snoot or Piggy or Hawkster. With these weapons, Fire Demon increases his potency in the levels far more than any other weapon, making him an easy character to pick up and learn.
