* The forces of Hell and Heaven seem more like rival sports teams than vicious enemies in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', but even so the demons can be nasty.

* In ''Light Novel/{{Slayers}}'' NEXT, Xellos is introduced. A Self proclaimed Trickster Priest with EyesAlwaysShut and apparent ally, he is actually more of a PhysicalGod and one step removed from being the single most powerful entity of darkness currently active in the world. While not quite mightiest of the mazoku (evil race), there is very little, short of the dark lords themselves, that ranks above him in power, and to date, every season he has appeared in ends with there being one less creature superior to him in power as result of his companions. The mere fact of his presence is enough to make the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent dragon race]] tremble in fear and do everything possible to avoid a direct confrontation.

* A important chunck of backstory for all OgreBattle games was once that the Underworld's armies of Demons, Ogres and other such nasties invaded Earth, who were aided by Heaven's armies in the titular "Ogre Battle". The Underworld lost, but parts of the legions can still be summoned by humans. They are often very important plot point, like in VideoGame/OgreBattleMarchOfTheBlackQueen, where [[BigBad Rashidi]] contacts a General of said Legion, [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Galf]] or in Videogame/OgreBattle64 is a bunch of Ogres being summoned by [[spoiler: The Holy Lodis Empire]]. However, in battle, you can persuade some of them to join you!

*** When this happens, it is usually the end of your fortress. Of course, this being ''[[spoiler:VideoGame/DwarfFortress]]'', you could just [[spoiler:massacre said legion and ''[[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=65024.0 build a fucking colony in their house.]]'']]

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and ''TheMalloreon'' feature demons as a one-shot problem in the former, and a serious threat in the latter. The series makes a point of stating that even a [[{{Mook}} normal]] Demon can't be fought without sorcery, another Demon, or the aid of a God; one of the antagonists is able to usurp control of an entire country just by threatening to unleash his hordes of Demons. Naturally the two [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils Demon Lords]] who put in an appearance later are just shy of indestructible.

* During ''[[Literature/HomecomingDrizzt Homecoming]]'', with the weakening of the Faerzress, the magical radiation barrier of the Underdark, all sorts of demons and demon lords start to pop up in the cave systems. The only way to get rid of them is killing them --and so banishing them from the material plane for a hundred years.

** The actual [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Legion of the Damned]] are the ghosts of dead space marines, that show up on the battlefield to aid fellow Marines when the need is great. They sport armor emblazoned with flames and scorched bones, and they are described as being like smoky shadows in appearance, flickering like a flame in the wind as they plod across the battlefield.
This list shows the last 10 events of 96. Show all.
