The Stygian is a type of lesser demon in DmC: Devil May Cry. Although they come in many varieties, all Stygians resemble cracked porcelain dolls filled with a demonic black fluid, with steampunk-style weapons grafted to their arms, and they usually attack in hordes. Early production material referred to the Stygian as the "Warrior Drone".
Description[edit | edit source]
Lesser[edit | edit source]
The (Lesser Stygian) is the most common type of enemy in the game, but is the weakest of the Stygians. It generally wields spiked clubs, and is moderately agile.
Stygian[edit | edit source]
The Stygian is more powerful and intelligent than the Lesser Stygian, and has a horn of fluid emerging from the holes in its face. It generally wields a large razor, and can both perform two-step combination attacks as well as block some of Dante's melee attacks. Firearms like the Revenant are efficient at breaking its guard.
Elite[edit | edit source]
The Elite Stygian is the most powerful form of Stygian, and is actually relatively formidable. Unlike the weaker Stygians, the Elite Stygian has a blue, unbroken face with demonic horns, a toothy mouth, and a strange texture. It generally wields a large sawblade, which it can use to generate shockwaves along the ground. It can easily sidestep Dante's Ophion techniques, as well as deal significant damage.
