Powers and Abilities

Basic Doom Demons are paranormal beasts of great strength and durability, with fangs and horns.

Spectres are the same, but are almost invisible, appearing as a shimmer and strong air distortion. While this ability does not correspond to Invisibility, and does not protect them much in combat (especially if the opposing fighter is used to them), this often allows them not to be spotted until they are quite close.

They can easily be heard, however, especially due to their tendency to roar fiercely. They really shouldn’t do that.

Doom demon running sprite


Sorta like a shaved gorilla, except with horns, a big head, lots of teeth, and harder to kill.

Don’t get too close or they’ll rip your fraggin’ head off.

They behave a bit like a rhino with a bad case of colic – you know how it is.
