Generic Character Entry

This entry is for a generic or common character type, and acts as an umbrella entry for every game containing this type of character. Games that feature a very distinct and unique interpretation of this character type may receive their own entry.

User Summary

A hellhound is a supernatural dog with features that typically include black or dark fur, glowing eyes, super strength or speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, foul odor, and sometimes even the ability to talk. In cultures that associate the afterlife with fire, hellhounds may have fire-based abilities and appearance.

They are often assigned to guard the entrances to the world of the dead, such as graveyards and burial grounds, or undertake other duties related to the afterlife or the supernatural, such as hunting lost souls. In European legends, seeing a hellhound or hearing it howl may be an omen or even a cause of death.
