Soul Eater

Species Demon
Appearances Devil May Cry 3

Soul Eater is a lesser demon appearing in Devil May Cry 3 that is capable of changing its constitution from solid to gaseous. They are first encountered in Mission 11: Revenge.

Appearance and DescriptionEdit

The Soul Eater is a genderless demon that resembles an octopus with many glowing tendrils (the appendages have enough strength to hold demons or prey, like Dante firm to feast on his demonic essence, while discarding a thought to treat its prey as a "friend"), they have many imprinted details across their body (resembling a form of tatoos or veins), and they have a sneaky facial expression with a pair of enclosed and fanged jaws that function like lips. They are covered in a dark aura, and are created from a non-physical body. (The traits are mentioned below)

These demons were created from the spiritual remnants of the rage of murdered demons.[1]


Because the player must turn away from the Soul Eater for it to become vulnerable, the most useful attacks to use are ones that can quickly change direction, or can attack behind the player. Beowulf's Killer Bee and Ebony & Ivory's Twosome Time are useful in this regard, as are the Spiral and Kalina Ann. If the Soul Eater manages to grab you, just invoke Devil Trigger to break free. Unlike Blood-goyles, bullets do not force Soul Eaters to change into their solid form.


The Soul Eater seems to be based on the Cthulhu-mythos flying polyp, Lloigor, or star vampire, all of them barely describable monstrosities.
