* A lot of archfiends from the less central fiend species in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' have these kinds of names. Stand-out examples include the qlippoth lord Isph-Aun-Vuln, the sahkil tormentor Xiquiripat, and the kyton tormentor Raetorgash. Note that just because they're not one of the major fiend races doesn't mean they're any less dangerous, they can still take all but the strongest heroes to pieces with ease.
