Demon and Horned Demon
The un-upgraded version can also be summoned by Pit Lords from dead allied stacks, their numbers being limited by the total health and numbers of the dead stack.
Heroes with a specialty
- Marius the Demoniac has demons as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any demons or horned demons for each level attained after 4th level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

They are very cost-effective units, although quite slow and rather weak. You can gather large numbers of them using the Demon herding tactic (see Pit Fiend). Not upgrading them makes more room for your hero's army, since you can't stack demons generated by pit lords with horned demons, unlike skeletons and skeleton warriors with Necromancy. This can work well with Marius, since she not only improves demons' strength and speed to make them more effective in combat, but also makes them less penalizing to transport on the adventure map.
