Lesser demons are a kind of demon weaker than the closely-related greater demons, categorized by the absence of wings. They have 5000 life points, a maximum hit of 480 damage, hit at the speed of 2.4 ticks (4 seconds), and regenerate at an average rate of 20 life points per minute. All lesser demons use a magic projectile attack.

Lesser demons originate on Infernus, where they were called Byzroth, as the other demons seen in Gielinor do. They are part of the Avernic race, which were tribal and primitive, and slaves to whoever was ruling Infernus at the time. 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.

In free-to-play worlds, lesser demons have one of the best experience rates for high level Magic and Ranged training, especially the latter considering their weakness to bolts; though it is countered by them having inferior drops compared to similarly levelled monsters. However, since they attack with magic and have low melee affinity, it is not recommended for melee players to train on demons. Lesser demons also drop accursed ashes, providing an easy way to train prayer when combined with an accursed urn or a source of money when combined with the Death Note relic power (due to the ashes' use in making Kwuarm incense sticks).

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The last Lesser demon I killed I found a crossbow with bolts took them down effectively.

Lesser demons are weak to ranged attacks. Although they're relatively weak, they are still dangerous. Taverley's underworld is infested with these hellish pests.

Lesser demons are effective training monsters for players that are at least medium level (above 80 combat level). Since Karamja has many fishing spots, players may fish for food on the island if they run out; members may use the bank in the nearby TzHaar City to restock on food. The lesser demon in the Wizards' Tower can also be used for relatively quick, relatively safe kills for lower-levelled players, but use of telekenetic grab is recommended to pick up drops.

Lesser demons are affected by the powers of Silverlight and Darklight, which provides greatly increased accuracy and damage against demons. However, the provided boosts may not be enough for lower-levelled players unless the enhanced Darklight reward is also purchased from Dimension of Disaster). As such, ranged is recommended, but magic also suffices with tier 60 gear or higher. Lower-levelled players are recommended to bring an emergency teleport and additional food, as lesser demons hit fairly accurately, even through mid-level ranged armour.

Prayer training (F2P)[edit | edit source]

High-level F2P players using ranged may opt to use these for free prayer training, in conjunction with accursed urns. In addition, players training at the Karamja volcano have the option of picking up two regular bone spawns that appear quite frequently.

Champion's Challenge[edit | edit source]

Lesser demons are one of the races who have lesser champions in the Champion's Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Lesser Demon Champion, the player must kill lesser demons until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The average Lesser demon kill is worth 8,398 coins.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  4. ^ Vecna skull requires tier 4 luck. Chance is 1/1280 per roll of the rare drop table with the tier 4 luck requirement.[d 3]
  5. ^ Cheese+tom batta indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  6. ^ Blurberry Special indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring with tier 4 luck.
  7. ^ Hazelmere's signet ring requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.
