A-List of Demons

A-List of demons. Meaning Demons whose names start with the letter A. I am going to make more lists of other demons names in the future, but I thought it was funny how many of their names started with the letter A, so I made this list all for itself. There are actually more demons names that start with the letter A, but these were the only ones that were listed on Comic Vine's database. And some of these ones, didn't even have images to go along with them.

List items

  • In Judo-Christian traditions, Abaddon is known both as a "place" and the personification of an entity of pure destruction. Similar to Tartarus in Greek traditions.

  • The name Abraxas was taken from abra-cadaba. He is presented on amulets with the head of a cock, dragons feet, and a whip in his hand.

  • Agares, of the order of the virtues who governs thirty-one legions, appears riding a crocodile and carrying a sparrowhawk. He is said to make deserters return and can cause enemies to flee. He can exalt people, teach all languages, and make the earth spirits dance.

  • In ancient Persian religion (Zoroastrianism), Ahriman stood high in the ranks of the enemies who opposed Ahura Mazda. Ahriman is thought to be the first personification of “the Devil” because Zoroastrians believed in a completely dualistic form of religion.

  • An alastor is a tormenting spirit or a Nemesis. Percy Bysshe Shelly wrote a poem (Alastor or The Spirit of Solitude – 1816), which warned idealists that if they are always searching for an ideal love, the world will be their tormentor, and they will die a lonely death.

  • Amduscias governs twenty-nine legions. His true form is as a unicorn, but appears as human form when summoned. He will give concerts if commanded, and is accompanied by the sound of trumpets along with other musical instruments. Trees also bend to his command.

  • Amon, who commands forty legions, can appear in the form of a wolf with a serpent’s tail and vomiting flames. In human form, he has the head of an owl and his beak shows canine teeth. He was the supreme deity of the Egyptians, who had blue skin in human form. Amon can tell of the past and the future, and reconcile the differences between friends.

  • Andras, who commands thirty legions, has the body of an angel and the head of an owl. He rides a black wolf and carries a saber. He can give advice on how to kill, and he can escalate quarrels and discord.

  • Asmodeus (also Chammadai or Sydonai) is the destroying demon and superintendent of the gaming houses. He may be also the equivalent of Samael. It is said that he will be the one to dethrone Solomon, but that Solomon will force him to aid in the battle for the Jerusalem temple. After Tobie expels him with the smoked spleen of a fish from Sara, the angel Raphael will bind him in the depths of Egypt. According to the Courrier de l’Egypte, the people of the country still adore Asmodeus, whose temple sits in the desert of Ryanneh. He allegedly will cut himself into pieces and immediately after, disappear.

  • Astaroth appears as an ugly angel riding a dragon and holding a viper in his left hand. It is thought that this powerful grand-duke presides over 40 legions, and possibly over the East and is treasurer of hell. The Sidonians and Phlistines worshiped him in the past. Wierus mentions that he knows of past and future events, secret things, liberal arts, and the story of creation and the fall of the angels. He also believes he received an unjust punishment.

  • Azazel is the chief of the Se’irim, or goat-demons, who haunted the desert and to whom most primitive Semitic (most likely non-Hebrew) tribes offered sacrifices. The Old Testament states that Jeroboam appointed priests for the Se’irim. But Josiah destroyed the places of their worship, as the practices accompanying this worship involved copulation of women with goats.
