Bael and Dagon are members of a demonic race of enormous ice based toad-like creatures and bosses from Devil May Cry 4.


Bael's Arrival

After the lesser Hell Gates opened, Bael emerged in the central courtyard of Fortuna Castle, causing it to be shrouded in a blizzard. Nero first encounters its two Rusalkas, the two feelers on its head resembling women, and fights them, before Bael himself appears. Nero defeats the demon and tears off one of the Rusalkas, which his Devil Bringer absorbs. As the ice monster dies, he swears that his brothers would avenge him and Nero sees six Dagons about to emerge through the Hell Gate. But he quickly closes it, preventing their escape for a time.

Dagon's Arrival

An army of Dagons.

However, a Dagon managed to escape through the Hell Gate and froze the courtyard again. Dante arrives and flirts with the Rusalkas, just as he seemingly lets his guard down. The Dagon is about to eat Dante but Dante dodges, shocking the demon because Dante knew. Dante responds by saying that his stink gave him away, angering the beast and making him attack Dante. As Dante defeats Dagon, he warns Dante that there are more of them then Dante slashes the Dagon, causing him to turn to ice and shatter. Dante then takes the Devil Arm, Pandora, just as the other Dagons escape. Using his new weapon, Dante uses it to destroy the Hell Gate and slaughter the escaped Dagons. Even though Nero killed Bael and not Dagon, Nero encounters Dagon instead of Bael inside the Savior.

Powers and Abilities

Bael and Dagon are able to emit a gas that renders them invisible and can use their Rusalkas, angler fish like appendages that resemble women and are able to speak, to draw in prey.

Dagon's Feelers

The demons can also freeze prey, though they have highly vulnerable tongues.
