A close-up of a Heretic.

Heretics are tall, thin, gray skinned demons who start appearing in the sixth circle of Hell. Once they were warlocks, working as priests to the Old Religion.


They have more magic attacks than most minions and are usually seen using those more than melee. Their abilities consist of energy shields, that they can also use on other minions, that block all magic and mana abilities, such as Dante's Cross and bolts of electricity that can be shot from their staff. They are sometimes accompanied by similar foes known as Pagans.


Because of their power to make other surrounding enemies immune to Dante's holy attacks, Heretics should be the player's first priority. They are immune to the Cross thus, Scythe attacks or Magic must be used to defeat them.


  • Heretics and Pagans are capable of speech, often invoking the names of lesser beings they worshipped.
