Physical attacks is the best way to defeat it, especially with Holy-elemental weapons, which it is weak against.

Etymology[]

The Devil is believed in many religions, myths and cultures to be a supernatural entity that is the personification of evil and the enemy of God and humankind.

The Japanese name of this monster is Satan. Satan comes from a Hebrew ha-Satan which means "the accuser." It is the name of the Devil in Abrahamic religions. Satan is also one of the seven princes of Hell in Christian Demonology. He is attributed the deadly sin of Wrath.

Due to Nintendo's policies regarding religious content in games at the time, the Devil enemy's name was changed to Goblin for the SNES release. A goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.
