First encountered with Hell's fourth circle, Greed Minions prove to be amongst the most powerful of all types of minions that Dante encounters. Like other minions, they appear as small, skeletal corpses, but now appear to also have gold smelted amongst their remains. They carry swords, and can assault Dante with fast leaping strikes. They also have the skills to easily evade some of Dante's attacks.
Greed Minions via wide-radius attacks, so that they do not get an opportunity to evade. It also helps to use holy powers such as Sacred Judgment, which will bring them close and also stun them, so that they can be finished off with the Scythe.
