Black demons are large demons that inhabit a few dungeons throughout Gielinor. As demons, they have high combat stats but rather low Defence for their level. They are weak to demonbane weapons; as with most demons, they are also weak to magical attacks.

A black demon is defeated during The Grand Tree. This demon can be re-fought in the Nightmare Zone after the quest has been completed. Killing Black demons in Nightmare Zone will count as a kill for a Slayer task.

Demonic gorillas, Balfrug Kreeyath, Skotizo, Porazdir, and Kolodion's final form can also be killed in place of black demons in regards to a Slayer task.

Black demons can be safespotted with Magic or Ranged in all of their locations.
