The Voodoo Demon is a rare enemy found in The Underworld. It is identical to the Demon in behavior, but differs slightly in appearance: a small Guide Voodoo Doll hangs upside-down from one of its talons, and it lacks the blue bracelets and anklets that are worn by regular Demons.

Voodoo Demons will always drop a Guide Voodoo Doll. Due to the terrain of the Underworld, defeating a Voodoo Demon may result in an unwanted summoning of the Wall of Flesh if the doll falls into one of the many large bodies of lava throughout the Underworld.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) or its upgrades.


  • Like normal Demons, Voodoo Demons are immune to lava.
  • They have a fairly low spawn rate compared to Demons and Arch Demons(Old-gen console and 3DS versions).
  • The Wall of Flesh will only be summoned if the Guide Voodoo Doll drops as an item and is destroyed by lava (as long as the Guide is alive). As the Voodoo Demon and the entire sprite are immune to lava, the doll will not be destroyed if the Voodoo Demon makes contact with it.


  • It may be worth investing time into building a 1-block thick bridge over a large portion of the Underworld. This will both ensure that no Guide Voodoo Dolls accidentally fall in lava and make the fights with the Wall of Flesh more manageable.
    • In order to effectively farm Guide Voodoo Dolls, it may be worth utilizing the bridge as an arena for battling multiple Demons at once, due to the low spawn rate of Voodoo Demons.
    • However, it is worth noting that farming for a Guide Voodoo Doll is not as useful in the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, as throwing the Guide himself in lava can also summon the Wall of Flesh.
  • Farming Voodoo Demons in Hardmode and after a mechanical boss is defeated is not advisable as their spawn can be overridden by Red Devils and Tortured Souls, significantly reducing their average spawn rate – not to mention the high spawn rates of Hellbats and Lava Slimes.
  • In For the worthy(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, most Demons are replaced with Voodoo Demons, making them much easier to farm in those worlds.


  • The sound Voodoo Demons make when damaged by the player was not updated along with regular Demons in, Console and Mobile versions).
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Voodoo Demon: "Higher ranking demons can possess a voodoo doll of the chosen one, whose soul is linked with the world's guardian himself."
