Lesser Demons are monsters with a combat level of 79. These and Delrith were the first "Demons" to be in the game, with both being present at Classic's launch. Several more "Demons" were also added to RuneScape Classic over the years.

Rune Medium drop

  • Lesser Demons and Black Demons are the only monsters which may drop a Medium Rune Helmet when killed.
    • Other than helmets created via means of Runite smithing, this caused Lesser Demons the only source of the medium helmet for a year and a month, until the Black Demon was released on 27 February 2002.


  • They are especially weak to the Silverlight sword, which may be obtained during the course of the Demon Slayer quest
    • Note: Silverlight has to be wielded while making the initial attack (first hit), otherwise the special ability will not activate.
