Due to recent events here on SOS and elsewhere, it has come to my attention that it may be time to brush up on some basic demon fighting tricks and techniques.
(A quick review if you haven’t been keeping on, read about the events HERE .)
SOS DEMON DEFEATING IN 3 EASY STEPS
1. Fight Your Fear
Sure it can be hard. Some demons have scaly, oozy reptilian forms with wings and horns – unsettling, to say the least.
However, remember this one fact about demons and you can conquer this unholy fear, once and for all. Extensive research over many centuries has revealed that not all demons are actually that bad. In fact, researchers have recently begun distinguishing between the good demons and the bad by calling the good ones daimons, but the result is the same. Not uniformly bad.
Sure most of them have their uniquely destructive tendencies but even the worst, most annoying demons, like the ones who like to cause unrelenting kidney pain or unquenchable curiosity are not bad ALL the time and most of them have mad skills. (More about that below.)
And take heart from this next time you find yourself duelling with a demon for your very survival. If you win, they have a unique supernatural weakness that’s actually pretty awesome – once defeated, demons will often work FOR you.
(Of course, should you lose, expect to be covered in boils or plagued with an unquenchable thirst for eternity, but try not to focus on that. Point is, a demon once defeated, becomes a source of secret strength for you.)
Don’t believe me? Well then take it from one of the first and possibly most famous demon fighters of all time, Solomon himself, defeater of more than 73 demons in his time. His grimoire describes that once defeated, those demons did everything but cut his toenails. (Hey, even defeated demons have limits.) Point is, demons are known to be excellent at math, geometry, astronomy and all handicrafts.
2. Know Your Demon
Ever notice how demons seem to have a million names, not to mention email addresses? There’s a good reason for this. Once you know your demon’s real name, you can find out the correct way to defeat it.
Uncovering your demon’s real name involves making a careful study of everything about them, their appearance, communications and habits, followed by careful supernatural survivological research. This will help you determine the correct procedure to bind or destroy it.
3. Plan to Defeat Your Demon, Call An Ally
Different demons must be defeated different ways. Don’t believe the Hollywood hype, there’s no one size defeats all demon gun, unfortunately. For instance, would you believe that you could bind one of the most powerful demons by placing jars of water in a certain pattern around him? True story about old Asmodeus. (Of course, the iron chains may have helped old Solomon with this one, so hopefully that part about the water isn’t his idea of a joke.) Point is, should you use bells? Or salt? Or a brass vessel? Careful research and planning are key.
That’s why, when it comes to fighting a destructive demon, more than any other supernatural being, it’s important to have backup. Fortunately, with demons there’s a whole host of celestial beings interested in defeating them: angels, fallen angels, many gods and demigods and yes even other demons. In fact, many demons were created by fallen angels for their legions. Often they regret doing it and will sometimes atone by helping you bind them. And as we all know, demons fight each other in legions, for all kinds of reasons, happened on the site here, when Mr. Mutt, recently returned from the underworld, took on the dread Trenzalador. A battle you can study here for more information. (But no questions. He’s sleeping.)
As for angels, they are of course interested in restoring order to the heavens and it is true that one of the seven major angels can be called upon for 73% of all demons. (Of course, knowing when and how to call the right angel is a trick in itself. Angels have a pretty special work schedule and specific call sign, as you can see below.)
Need help contacting the seven big angels? Please keep on keeping on for more information about that. Meanwhile start by referring to the handy chart below:
