The Kal'gerion demon is a combat level 126 Summoning familiar. The familiar gives the player a passive +1% forced critical strike chance. The familiar is an optimal choice for those using the Fractured Staff of Armadyl's special attack due to the critical bonuses it provides.

In order to understand its dialogue, the player's Summoning level must be boosted to 100.

Binding contract (Kal gerion demon)[edit | edit source]

A Binding contract (kal'gerion demon) is obtained via Archaeology.


In order to make the Ancient Summoning pouch, the mystery Dagon Bye must be completed. Once this mystery is solved, players may begin creating binding contracts, requiring 1 blue charm, a normal pouch, 2 bloods of Orcus, 2 hellfire metals, and 200 spirit shards.

Upon making the binding contract, players must then kill Kal'gerion demons with the contract in the inventory in order to bind the Kal'gerion demon into the contract, resulting in a binding contract (kal'gerion demon). Unlike normal Summoning, Ancient Summoning does not require use of summoning obelisks to infuse pouches.

Kal'gerion Demon scroll (Crit-i-Kal)[edit | edit source]


The Kal'gerion Demon scroll (Crit-i-Kal) temporarily gives the player, familiar, and other players within the 7x7 area centred around the centre of the Kal'gerion demon familiar with the Kal'gerion roar buff, granting +5% critical hit chance for 60 seconds. The Kal'gerion Demon scroll (Crit-i-Kal) use 30 special attack points each. Ironmen cannot benefit from other players' Kal'gerion roar buff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On release, one of the demon's conversations is a reference to its own large size and the large sizes of Shadow Drakes and Fire Drake, all of which may obscure the screens of other players. It also references various player complaints about the drakes' sizes and their requests to make them smaller.
    • This was modified on 18 May 2020 due to player complaints of how large the demons were, the demon now referencing its previous size in the current conversation.
  • Prior to an unknown update, players who attempted to use the Kal'gerion Demon scroll (Crit-i-Kal) ability while scrolls were held within the kal'gerion demon would have stated that there were no scrolls to be used, and none would be consumed. The scrolls' worked as intended when they were present in the players' inventory.
