Greater demons are demonic beings found in many remote locations throughout RuneScape. As most other demons do, they follow the god Zamorak. Greater demons are more powerful than lesser demons, with highly accurate magic attacks. They are distinguished from them by their large wings and slightly greater stature. Like all demons, they are weak to Silverlight and holy water. A famous demon slayer known to have fought these creatures is Gaalsien.

Greater demons originate on Infernus, where they were called Alyaroth, as the other demons seen in RuneScape do. They are part of the Avernic race, tribal and primitive, and slaves to whomever was ruling Infernus. At the time of Palkeera's memory of the realm, they were enslaved by the cannibalistic Chthonians, who were unable to consume the Avernics for some reason. Among the Avernic demons, the Tsutsaroth were the dominant tribe, ruling over the Alyaroth and Byzroth in a brutal manner.

Greater demons are often killed as a good source of crimson charms and as frequent droppers of clue scrolls. They provide good experience as a slayer task due to their low defence. K'ril Tsutsaroth in the God Wars Dungeon counts as a greater demon for slayer tasks, allowing for a more challenging alternative.

Accursed or infernal urns can be useful when killing greater demons to collect the dropped ashes and grant 20% more prayer experience than just scattering them.

Locations

If the player is killing greater demons for a Slayer assignment then they can gain 20% additional Slayer experience by equipping a demonic skull while killing greater demons in the Wilderness. They can gain another 20% extra experience per kill at these locations if they accept a special slayer contract from Erskine while assigned greater demons as a Slayer assignment. These experience bonuses stack, meaning the player may gain 40% extra Slayer experience. Completing a special slayer contract rewards the player with a choice of coins or combat experience.

Different appearance

Trivia

  • Before they were given a graphical update on 28 January 2013, they had heads which resembled that of a horse, or the old head of all the dragons, as well as long thin limbs, fangs, and a solid red skin tone. One variant of demon was purple and sported a different examine text of "Big, purple, and incredibly evil." This variant was changed to red along with its examine during the graphical rework.
  • On 4 February 2014 the greater demon underwent a drop table rework which resulted in them dropping more valuable and useful items.
  • They are the fifth highest-levelled and second most accurate free-to-play monster, and have the third highest maximum hit for a free-to-play monster, excluding revenants, Quest monsters, or Dungeoneering monsters. In accuracy and maximum damage per hit, they were surpassed by the level 85 skeletons from the Stronghold of Security in 2006, and then by the hellhound in 2009.
