Black demons are one of the strongest demons that inhabit multiple dungeons throughout RuneScape Classic. They are quite dangerous and caution should be taken when fighting or walking near them. A level 175 black demon is fought during the Grand Tree quest.

Like other demons, they are especially weak to the Silverlight sword, which may be obtained during the Demon Slayer quest. Silverlight has to be wielded while making the initial attack (first hit), otherwise the special ability will not activate.
