Heavenly Demon (天魔; tiān mó) also known as Outland Heavenly Demon (域外天魔; yùwài tiān mó) by cultivators, were strange creatures of unknown origins. These creatures were like meteors, and each year, a few of them would fall onto the Earth. Some of them would burn to ashes as soon as they entered the atmosphere. But some whose luck or strength was good enough would successfully descend onto the surface of the Earth.
Ordinary human beings couldn’t see heavenly demons, and they too weren’t particularly interested in ordinary human beings or animals. What they were looking for were strong cultivators, monster beasts, ghost cultivators, aboriginal deities, and other similar beings with a high quantity of spiritual energy. After finding them, they would hunt and kill them in order to eat them and increase their strength.
The origin of outland heavenly demons currently unknown. There are some speculations that they were related with previous Heavenly Way, or far more ancient era. Other speculation includes they are from other worlds or creatures from other time and space.
Heavenly demons had rather low intelligence, and even their brain was just one of the muscles in their body. On the other hand, this allowed them to display a fighting capacity that was superior to their rank.
In order to slay a Sixth Stage heavenly demon, it was recommended to form a task force consisting more than two Sixth Stage True Monarchs as the leaders and twenty Fifth Stage Spirit Sovereigns as the assistants.
