Guardian Demons are demons first encountered on the Shores of Acheron. They are the lowest rank of Demons, but still general over lesser minions. They appear as tall, blackened beings, with long, curved horns. As a weapon, they can be seen carrying a large curved sword, which they can swing with great force. They also tend to appear in small groups of around two or three.
Guardian Demons are among the weakest demons in Hell. However, they are the strongest minions Dante will face at the beginning. Possessing little defense and health, these demons fall quickly before the scythe. They can also attack with an unblockable strike. When they are about to use this move, the sword will glow with a bright orange light. Dodge if you are too close, as this moves does massive damage. This move can be blocked and countered normally if the player has the Filippo's Rage relic. Once upgraded, a repayment move will automaticly be done if the player counters their unblockable strike.
