Daemon is one of four bosses that can be encountered in Archives.

Attack Patterns

Description Video
Daemon opens the fight by summoning two Electromancers and begins to shoot fire bullets in widely spread bursts, alternating between 5 and 4. The center of the burst is aimed at the player.
Once the Electromancers have been defeated, Daemon summons two Stormlashes and begins to fire streams of fire bullets in groups of four in a counter-clockwise pattern.

Once the summoned mages have been defeated, Daemon initiates the next phase of the fight with this attack. Large fireballs burst outward from its hands flying in a slight clockwise trajectory from the hand on the player's left, and then a slight counter-clockwise trajectory from the hand on the player's right, until each hand has fired 4 times. The bursts happen more quickly as the attack goes on. This attack is repeated after any other. DaemonAttack2.gif
Daemon begins charging up, firing several small bullets downward, at angles to the left and right. Then, a warning blinks onscreen in front of Daemon's face, a laser filling the warning space a moment after. The laser collides with the bottom of the screen causing several fire bullets to burst upward from the point of impact, the effect rippling to the left and right as well. The bullets jolt upward, but then fall back down after traveling a short distance. DaemonAttack3.gif
A horizontal warning appears across the arena. Immediately after, a pillar of fire from the left and right fills the space, firing some residual fire bullets outwards as it exacts on either side. The attack repeats vertically, then horizontally again, then vertically again, before ending. DaemonAttack4.gif
Daemon fires a burst of large fireballs outward, followed by a widely-spaced stream of medium and small fireballs to the sides and occasionally the center, with very few possible angles. After a few seconds, Daemon releases a massive burst of small fire bullets, damaging flames trailing behind several of them. DaemonAttack5.gif

Hard Mode

Daemon features two unique attacks on Hard mode, while in its death throes beginning at 33% remaining health. These attacks always happen in the same order, repeating until the end of the fight.

Description Video
Daemon's head begins floating back and forth at the upper part of the arena. He will fire 14 large bullets at the player, and small bullets burst from Daemon outward in a widely-spaced circular arrangement each time. DaemonHard1.gif
After that, Daemon fires three bursts of small fire bullets outward as it travels across the arena. Several of the bullets are trailed by damaging flames. DaemonHard2.gif

Notes

  • Daemon is confirmed as being one of the seven members of the old Council. Despite using fire all throughout the fight, his specialty was originally "Sight" magic, which involves time manipulation.
  • At the beginning of the fight, a computer prints text over a console, and then Daemon appears. This seems to imply that Daemon is living, via some magical means, as a program inside the computer.
    • This is further detailed as if the player dies to Daemon, the death description shows as "being hacked by" them.
  • The attack Daemon uses when fighting the Electromancers may be a reference to Satan from the Binding of Isaac.
  • It is very possible to kill all four of the mages that Daemon spawns at just about the same time, because Daemon will immediately spawn the second set of mages right as the first set are killed. It requires specific weapons and a specific timing.
