The Ripper Demon is a familiar that requires level 96 Summoning in order to be summoned.

It uses melee attacks, with an occasional chance to hit 2 or 3 times per attack like their monster variants. They have a passive effect that increases the damage of the player's attacks by 0-5%, scaling with the percentage of their target's lost life points.

The ripper demon is one of the strongest familiars in the game, stronger than the steel titan (even if the titan is using scrolls, but the demon isn't) for all combat styles, although magic players with a Fractured Staff of Armadyl may be better off with a Kal'gerion demon. However, it is limited to only one form of combat, although this should not be an issue in most cases.

Binding contract (ripper demon)[edit | edit source]

A binding contract (ripper demon) is obtained via Archaeology, which is then used to summon the familiar.

Passive[edit | edit source]

The ripper demon familiar has a passive effect that increases the damage output of the player based on the percentage of their target's remaining life points. This does not apply to bleeds.

The passive is a multiplier, and it scales with the target's remaining life points from 0% to 5% in the following way:

where is the damage multiplier, is the target's maximum life points, and is the target's current life points.
The current life points can be written as a fraction of the maximum life points, (where )

and the relation can also be rewritten:
