For the monster family in the Dragon Quest series, see Demon family.

The Demon (Japanese: 魔族 Mazoku) members are, generally speaking, beings who come from a sort of Hell, known as Nadiria, World of Darkness or Dark World. Most of them despise humanity and would like to see them wiped out, and some go to great lengths to bring this about. That said, some are sympathetic to humans and wish to strive for peaceful coexistence, but the general consensus is still that humans have monopolized the world, which should be for everyone, and forced the far fewer demons into Hell with their prejudice and outright violence.

Unlike with other races, their morphology varies widely from species to species. The Japanese word means both a sort of "Demon" or "Magic". Rhapthorne is a demon from the World of Darkness that tried create a gate that would connect the World of Light and the World of Darkness into one world and its ruler would be Rhapthorne.

Dragon Quest IV

In Dragon Quest IV, the current Lord of the Underworld, Estark was locked in a tomb underground in Mamon Mine a thousand years before the beginning of the game, and is asleep until excavators accidentally reach his tomb. However, the Hero of Dragon Quest IV defeats him, shortly after which the second-most prominent demon, Psaro, takes on the position and seeks to wipe out humanity, but is also defeated. However, Psaro's desire to wipe out humanity was orchestrated by Aamon, his right hand man, to take his position of the Master of Monsterkind. However, after Rose is revived, Psaro returns to his normal self and helps the Chosen get revenge on Aamon, truly bringing peace to the world.

Dragon Quest V

In Dragon Quest V, in Nadiria, Grandmaster Nimzo is waiting for the Zenithian Hero, and has sent various demons to terrorize the world in preparation for his arrival. In addition, he is Aamon's last disciple, having mastered the Secret of Evolution better than what Psaro & his master could do.

Dragon Quest X

The race is greatly expanded on in this game. At first, only Nelgel, Demon Marshal Zerudorado, & Madesagora are the prime demons that the Hero needs to defeat to restore peace in Astoila. However, after Nadraga & Kyronos's defeats, Nadiria starts to undergo a power struggle, and Pujyu takes Kyronos's Shock seed to open the gate to the demon realm, after which Valeria comes out and defeats the Hero. The Hero is rescued by Yushka, and his skin turns purple, after which Yushka helps out the Hero to regain his normal self.
