The Demons served as supporting antagonists in the 2019 American supernatural superhero film Hellboy.


Some of the demons were quickly seen in a vision in which Hellboy would lead them to destroy humanity while riding on a large dragon-like beast.

The demons were released from Hell when Hellboy pulled Excalibur from the stone after Nimue killed Trevor Bruttenholm. Several different types of these creatures started to rampage throughout the streets, killing and torturing any humans they encountered, with one large demon even destroying the Tower Bridge.

Eventually, all demons were sent back to Hell and also Nimue's head, after Bruttenholm's ghost managed to appeal to Hellboy's humanity.

Types of demons

There were several different types of demons that were released from the Hell:

Winged demons

The winged demons were numbered in the hundreds, if not thousands. They were seen flying all around London, picking up people and tearing them apart.
