A demon (Greek: δαίμων [ðaïmon, daemon, dæmon, or daimon]) is a mythological, malevolent supernatural being that originated in human folklore and/or religion. Also known in Christianity as a fallen Angel.

Demons can take any desired appearance, although the general accepted look is that of a being, black or red skinned, with hooves, forked tail, horns, and sometimes winged.

Demons and furry[edit]

A "demon" in furry circles is a species of furry that is related to the religious creature closely associated with the notions of "evil" and/or "hell". In social furry interaction, demons are often just very hedonistic rather than truly "evil", but this is by no means a rule.

Most often, furry demon appearance is a modifier applied to another species. Certain features are added to the base species; horns, usually of either bull or ram style, crimson fur or hairless crimson skin, sharp fangs, bifurcated hooves, spaded tails, and bat or dragon-like membranous wings.

Two of the more popular type of demons portrayed in the fandom are the seducing Incubi (incubus) and Succubae (succubus).

Japanese/Asian demons[edit]

Although not a creation of furry lore, the Tanuki raccoon dog and the Kitsune fox demon of Asian mythology are favorites with many fans and artists in the fandom because of their anthropomorphic nature.
