Pazuzu was a pyrelord commander who fought for Zamorak during the God Wars. He appears only in the FunOrb strategy game Armies of Gielinor, and as such the canonicity of his exploits and history remains uncertain. Like many of Zamorak's generals, such as Thammaron, Agrith Naar, and K'ril Tsutsaroth, Pazuzu was a demon, albeit of the pyrefiend race.

Pazuzu appears frequently in the Saradomin Strikes campaign, which is based loosely on Saradomin's exploits in what is now Misthalin and Asgarnia during the God Wars. He plays prominently into the levels "Into the Occult," "Barbarism Starts at Home," and "Flight," during which he is gradually forced from the area that is now Falador to what is now Silvarea. The Pyrelord was first encountered in the area north of Falador, where he was researching on standing stones for a unknown reason. He then had to retreat and take shelter at a Fremennik village, where Pazuzu recruited the local barbarians including a Fremennik known as The Chief, in a failed attempt to defeat Saradominist forces west of the River Lum, near what is now Gunnarsgrunn. After yet another failed attempt to defeat Saradomin's forces, he attempted to flee to his fortress at an area known as the Unicorn Valley, in what is now the area between Barbarian Village and west Varrock, however his efforts where thwarted by Litara.

Later, in the Guthix Awakens campaign, Pazuzu is encountered once again, this time as a Zamorakian leader in the "God Wars" level. The scenario occurs near the end of the God Wars, suggesting that Pazuzu was active throughout the Third Age before being defeated by Guthixian forces.

Pazuzu appears in four missions, being slain in every one (except Flight, if the player captures the key structure instead). It is unknown how it is possible that he participated in all four battles. It is possible that he was not killed in any of the first three missions, merely wounded to the point where retreat was the only option.
