Elizébet is tasked with retrieving the "Demon Statue", an important ancient artifact guarded by the Hayabusa Ninja Clan. Approaching the Black Spider Ninja Clan for help, she promised Overlord Genshin and his followers Fiend powers to overthrow the Dragon Ninja Clan. Elizébet manages to trigger Ryu's anger by capturing Sonia and spitting on Genshin's pride after she resurrects him as a complete Fiend.

The "Ruler of Lightning" and one of the Greater Fiends, Alexei awoke from his centuries-long slumber by Elizébet via the power of the Demon Statue, quickly making a bid to conquer New York City, holding court from atop the Statue of Liberty.

* {{Retcon}}: In the first Xbox game, Vigoor is also referred to as the ''Dark God Vigoor''; aside from his Holy Vigoor Emperor title, this implies he is ''the'' Archfiend, a PhysicalGod beyond all other Archfiends.

The "Ruler of Storms" and one of the Four Greater Fiends, Volf is a vicious, four-armed werewolf and the leader of the Beast-Men tribe of Fiends.

The Ruler of Flames and one of the Four Greater Fiends, he is perhaps the most demonic of them in appearance, resembling a monstrous devil with pitch-black skin and bat-like wings. He has a low opinion of humanity, considering them little better than primates, and claims to have bestowed fire upon them centuries ago (without which, he insists, they would have been nothing). Upon his release, he lays siege to a Russia-esque city in Northern Europe and eradicates their military, demanding that they "submit or die."

Genshin successfuly destroyed great part of the Dragon Ninjas' village up to fighting against Joe Hayabusa, and managed to steal the Demon Statue for Elizébet. Ryu fights against Genshin four times during the story. In the third he kills him, but Genshin is resurrected by Elizébet as a Greater Fiend. Ryu once again prevails and finished Genshin off once and for all. Despite Genshin's hatred for Ryu's clan it seems both of them develop a mutual respect during their fights; it is clear that when Genshin died most of his hatred was gone, and Ryu was infuriated when Elizébet spit on Genshin's pride.
