- For lore about daemons, see Daemon.
Daemons are the ancient and corrupt denizens of the lower planes. These winged creatures of fire are legendary for their fondness of destruction and brutal cruelty. Daemons harbor a lustful hatred for all mortals and hunger for any chance to bring pain and death upon them. It is rumored that Gul'dan has entered into a pact with a sect of Daemons loyal to the Daemonlord Sargeras who are willing to aid the Warlock in finding their master's Tomb.
- Daemons cannot be controlled outside of custom maps. Even in custom maps, they may only be controlled one at a time unlike other units. They have no unit quotes or team colors unlike every other unit in the game.
