Monsters that attack humans, forcing them to hide in cities. Humans hunt them for food, crystals, spirits, and other items. Demon spiritualists are able to integrate captured demon spirits into their soul realm. They can merge with their demon in combat allowing them to possess strength and abilities beyond those of regular fighters. Over time these integrated demon spirits are influenced by the unique soul realm of the demon spiritualist they merge with and can lead to Mutations.
High ranking demon beast can potentially unlock its Spiritual Wisdom, granting them intelligence like that of a human. These types of powerful demon beasts are extremely dangerous and can even lead an army of others during a demon beast horde.
Demon Beasts inherit their strength through their bloodline, allowing some species to become stronger then others. This is even more true for those with dragon, ancient, and primordial bloodlines.
All demon beasts are separated by whether they have formed a demon spirit. This is independent of its rank. It is most likely the demon spirit that it formed by spiritual and emperor level demons that can be used this way by demon spiritualists.
(Note: Some of this is inferred by the context found in chapter 34 and the explanation of a demon spirit in chapter 6.)
- Normal: The majority of demon beasts, which has not formed a spirit
- Spiritual: has a spirit that resembles a flame, it is also stronger and more intelligent then others of the same rank
- Emperor: has a spirit that resembles a liquid, it is extremely strong and can change form into a human form (Named Demon Beasts).
|Demon Beasts Index|
Demons are separated into five ranks, just as with cultivators. Though demon beasts are born with a certain level of strength they also can gather more soul force and rise up in the ranks. It can be inferred from the context that the deity rank beast that Nie Li refers to from his previous life is most likely a, currently unknown, higher rank of demon beast.
Previously, Nie Li thought only demon beasts could reach the Heavenly Fate Realm. It was a demon beast breaking into that realm that eventually resulted in the Demon Beast Riot.
The ranks are listed below:
|Rank||Levels||Demon Beasts with Known Ranks||Notes|
|Bronze||1 Star - 5 Star||Horned Sheep
|Silver||1 Star - 5 Star||Fox Bear
Giant Blue Armed Ape
Black Star Tiger
|4 - 5 meters|
|Gold||1 Star - 5 Star||Scarlet Flaming Fox
Golden Horned Land Dragon
Snow Wind Behemoth Lizard
|4 - 5 meters|
|Black Gold||1 Star - 5 Star||Scarlet Black Tiger
Black Scaled Earth Dragon
Black Water Armyworm
Snow Wind Great Ape
|10 - 20 meters|
|Legend||1 Star - 5 Star||Snow Wind Giant Beast
|Heavenly Fate Realm||1 Fate - 9 Fate||Bloodwing Saint Jiao-dragon|
Types and Attributes
(Note: This has not been explained very clearly yet. I am not sure if the demon beasts each have a type and an attribute or if the attributes are just another type because that is their form of attack.)
