* The Ing of ''MetroidPrime 2'' are made reminiscent of this. They are just transdimensional beings though. They [[DemonicPossession possess]] creatures and even come from Dark Aether, a dimension that kills any "light creature" (anything that is not Ing) almost insantly.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this applies to any [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] who, for whatever reason, attempts to invade Mundus (the mortal realm) with their [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] servants. The purest example is Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]], and his Dremora servants, a ProudWarriorRace with a very [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver demonic aesthetic]] who serve him in a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Lawful Evil]] way. Dagon has repeatedly attempted to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over Mundus]] in this fashion, most famously in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', but has yet to actually succeed.

* Oblivion and the Daedra from ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games.
** Mehrunes Dagon's Daedra & The Dremora (his favorite servants) are much like this due to their innate destructive impulses. Most lesser Daedra (and what passes for 'animals' in the daedric planes) are hostile to the majority of mortal peoples and wreak major havoc in Tamriel unless their leading Prince restrains them. The Princes themselves largely follow BlueAndOrangeMorality (occasionally happening to align with human virtues) and therefore do not fall completely under this trope unless they're in the mood for some genocide.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' draws a distinction between Devils, who are LawfulEvil and [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Demons]], who are ChaoticEvil. The former are a race of [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]] who seek to conquer the universe, whereas the latter are out to destroy all of creation. Each has their own home plane: The Nine Hells of Baator for the devils, and The infinite Layers of the Abyss for the demons. Both races have armies of astronomical size, but fortunately for the rest of creation, they occupy most of their time fighting each other in an eternal conflict called the Blood War.
** Devils even include "Legion Devils"... the ''literal'' Legions of Hell.
** Between Demons and Devils lie the NeutralEvil Daemons, although they tend to get forgotten in scenarios in favour of their cousins.
** Yugoloths fit best with the Demons, so they were all shipped to the Abyss in 4th Ed.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' draws a distinction between Devils, who are has three main varieties. The LawfulEvil and [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Demons]], who are ChaoticEvil. The former are a race of [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]] who seek to conquer devils from the universe, whereas the latter are out to destroy all of creation. Each has their own home plane: The Nine Hells of Baator for field ruthlessly-disciplined armies out to subjugate the devils, and The infinite Layers universe, the ChaoticEvil demons spill out of the Abyss for the demons. Both races have armies of astronomical size, but fortunately for the rest in screaming hordes that try to tear down all of creation, they occupy most of their time fighting each other while the NeutralEvil daemons, or Yugoloths, fight for whoever makes the best offer. Fortunately for everyone else, these three groups have been engaged in an eternal a conflict called [[EvilVersusEvil the Blood War.
War]] since time immemorial - the demons' advantage of numbers is matched by the devils' superior strategy and tactics, and whenever one side gets an advantage, some third party (frequently the Yugoloths) takes steps to restore the balance of power.
** Devils even The devils are also the only group of evil outsiders organized enough to have proper legions, which include "Legion Devils"... the ''literal'' Legions Merregons, literal "legion devils." Each [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils archduke]] of Hell.

Hell maintains an army of their cousins.

The Nessian Guard, an elite force under the Abyss command of Asmodeus himself, is the only army that does not take part in 4th Ed.the Blood War, since it's being held in reserve for an even greater conflict to come.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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!

* ''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.
