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.


The Soul Eater is created from the spiritual remnants of the rage of murdered demons.[1] It will usually manifest as a cloud of blue smog, but if one shows his back to it, or slashes at the smog for long enough, it will manifest as an octopus-shaped monster. In this shape, it will try to dive at its target and grab him within its tentacles before feasting on his soul.


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.
