Ripper Demons are Slayer monsters that can be found in a cave under the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede. They require level 96 Slayer to be killed. They are Chthonian demons and are affected by Silverlight and Darklight, as well as the Demon Slayer perk. When killing Ripper Demons, an elite version called Slasher Demon may spawn.

According to the miner journals and the diary of Jebediah Omnis, a prospector named Jebediah Omnis hired a group of miners to excavate a new mine underneath the Abbey. The miners reluctantly agreed, finding no ore in the process. One night, when they tried to leave the mine, they found that the entrance had mysteriously disappeared. Jebediah reanimated the mangled corpse of The Ripper, allowing it to search for new hosts. Over the course of the several days that they spent trapped in the mine, the remains of the previous Ripper started to latch onto the excavation party, painfully warping their bodies and turning them into ripper demons themselves. Jebediah Omnis turned out to be a vengeful Zarosian zealot who wanted to please his lord in reviving the legend of The Ripper. The Ripper features in One Piercing Note quest as well.

During the You Are It quest, the double agent took the form of a ripper demon wearing his hat and surrounded the player with other ripper demons in Duke Horacio's room in Lumbridge Castle.

Location[edit | edit source]

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Unlike the other Raptor mobs, Ripper demons are only limited to melee attacks; however, they are also immune to stuns. Though they walk around while idle, once attacked, they will remain on the spot they were in unless walked under or their target moves away from melee distance. Ripper demons are normally tolerant of the player, but if they sense that the player's health is less than 35% of their maximum health, they will become aggressive. There's generally a short delay once the player reaches this threshold before nearby demons become aggressive, and it's recommended to quickly heal up to prevent them from attacking. If they become aggressive, it is recommended to teleport out.

Ripper demons attack in a manner similar to Nail beasts, with their attacks being capable of dealing up to 3 instant hits. For this reason, fighting them while having Armour spikes equipped would be very advantageous, as the multiple hits would reflect back a lot of the damage they deal. If the target is not within melee distance of the demon, then the demon will dash into the shadows and appear next to the player while applying Slaughter on them.

Ripper demons also possess an adrenaline bar that works differently compared to other monsters. The bar fills in varying degrees depending on how many hits their melee attack performs and regardless if the hits connect or not.

Once the Ripper demon's adrenaline bar is filled, it will jump into the air and the player will lose track of the demon; shortly after jumping, a shadow will appear west of the player's position (or directly under them if there is no space for the demon to land). If the player is next to or directly on the shadow, they will take 32,000 hard typeless damage, which essentially kills them in a single hit. As hard typeless damage, there are a few ways to reduce or block it, but it's simply best to move away, since the AoE is very small.

When the demon reaches 0 life points, it will perform a last-ditch struggle attack. The demon will spin uncontrollably on the spot, dealing 950 melee damage per tick for a brief time before collapsing. The AoE of this attack is somewhat unusual, although it is still fairly easy to avoid by standing at least three spaces away from the demon. Although drops will be shown upon reaching 0 health, it is best to collect them once the demon drops dead.
