An Anger Minion was a wrathful shade that was set aflame for their sins. These exploding minions are made of scorched rock with only magma holding the brittle pieces together. If Dante got too close, the magma would ignite their bodies, transforming them into a living bomb. Their pace quickened and Dante had only seconds to either dodge or kill them before the ensuing explosion. The fires could be extinguished with the holy power of the Cross. The cross could only temporarily stop them and Dante must follow up with his scythe to end their wrathful flames.
The Anger Minion was the kamikaze soldier of Hell. They rushed at Dante and tried to explode before he could attack them. However, they are weaker than the tormented shades. Attacking them with the scythe should be able to destroy them quickly. An easy way to avoid them was to grab them with the scythe and throw them away as their explosions would stun and hurt or even kill the other enemies.
