Cecil and the "Demon King"

The king of Devildom, the demon empire, has died but the citizens can't know that. The king's second in command and commanding General and Chancellor, Cecil has replaced the king with an impostor human named Merlin. Merlin doesn't exactly want to oversee the massacre of all humans but he has to if he ever wants to see his brother, Noah, again.

Escape Devildom is a fantasy Korean Webcomic created by Moo Men.


This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Adorable Evil Minions: Pyan and Maggie are castle guards that tend to do more harm than good. They spend most of their time patching up parts of the castle that they break during their escapades.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Pyros' greatest enemy is his own father, the Demon King as he cut off his wing for seemingly little reason. Nevertheless, Pyros is not fond of him.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Pyros, the royal prince, is charming and polite until he meets with you alone. Let's just say that he isn't too fond of his father either.
  • Bounty Hunter: Tropho Manon kills the demon king who has been harassing humankind for years- so he could pay for his brother's tuition.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: Merlin just happens to look like the dead king. He is perfect for Cecil's plans...

  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: A mysterious house fire killed Merlin's parents.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Pyros is able to break through an "unbreakable" magic rope using the memory of his father cutting off his wing as a source of power. It supposedly takes 400 horsepower to break through one of these magically imbued ropes...
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Pyros carries his whole arsenal of swords inside his cape at all times. Even he doesn't know how many he has but he thinks there's a couple hundred.
  • I Have Your Wife: Cecil gets Merlin to do his bidding as his brother Noah is being held as collateral.
  • La Résistance: A group of the imprisoned humans decide to take action against their captors.
  • Mind over Matter: Merlin has the unlimited ability to lift objects with his mind.
  • Miscarriage of Justice: Tropho Manon, the killer of the Demon king, is imprisoned because the king does not believe him.
  • Missing Mom: Pyros' mother died when he was young. He loves her, unlike his father.
  • Teen Genius: Merlin is a gifted magic user and was the youngest person at the tender age of nine to ever be accepted into the wizard academy. Too bad he himself expelled.
  • The Starscream: With the king dead, it is the perfect time for Cecil to take the throne for herself.
  • To Serve Man: Merlin is horrified to learn that human flesh is considered a delicacy in Devildom. If only he could get his servants to stop trying to serve it to him...
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: The ruthless Demon King had a fear of heights. He was too scared to go to his room on the ninth floor and never could go down to the dungeon as he does not like stairs.

How well does it match the trope?
