The thermonuclear smoke devil, often referred to as Thermy, is the boss version of the smoke devil, found in the Smoke Devil Dungeon. It requires a minimum of 93 Slayer to damage. Located at the Smoke Devil Dungeon south of Castle Wars, the Thermonuclear smoke devil can only be attacked on a smoke devil task, with the exception of one kill for the Western Provinces Diary (provided that the player has 93 Slayer without boosting).

It is the only monster to drop the Smoke battlestaff, Jar of smoke and the pet smoke devil. It drops the occult necklace at a higher rate than smoke devils do.

Unlike most NPCs, the Thermonuclear smoke devil is always able to walk through other monsters/players. This is to prevent players from safespotting the boss using the smoke devils found in its lair.

A dwarf multicannon cannot be used inside the boss room. If it is set up, the cannon will be destroyed (as in the lairs of the KBD and KQ).

  • The thermonuclear smoke devil and the Kraken are the only slayer bosses that can be fought with another player.
  • Despite the magic defence bonus of +800, at level one the effective defence against magical attacks is equal to 13.5 magic levels due to the way magic defence rolls are calculated.
