Demonic gorillas are powerful creatures found in the Crash Site Cavern. Two of them are fought during Monkey Madness II, in the penultimate stage of the fight. After the quest is completed, more demonic gorillas can be found in the caverns alongside their tortured brethren. They are primarily killed for their zenyte shard and ballista component drops.

They use melee, ranged and magic styles of attack. The gorillas will change combat styles after missing three hits in that attack style. They are also capable of using protection prayers, and will switch to protect from the player's attack style after taking enough damage from it. Therefore, you must bring two different combat styles to kill the gorillas. Demonic gorillas also have a special attack where they send a rock crashing down at the player's position, which can be easily avoided by moving out of the way.

Most of the gorillas reside in a multi-way combat area, making it very dangerous if the player is attacked by more than one at a time. However, there is a single-way area where more demonic gorillas can be fought safely. However, if they continually use their rock fall attack at the player, it is possible for nearby demonic gorillas to attack the player if they are not tolerant yet.

Demonic gorillas count as black demons during a slayer task. As they are demons, they are susceptible to the effects of Silverlight, Darklight and Arclight.

You can check the kill count by reading the gravestone next to Lumo at the opening in the fence.

Note: The prayers of the demonic gorilla cannot be bypassed through use of Verac's set or the Dragon scimitar.

  • Demonic gorillas are similar to the Tormented demons of RuneScape 3; both use all three forms of combat, protection prayers and drop items that are used to create more powerful equipment.
  • Demonic gorillas were slightly changed several days after release:
    • Their prayers were slightly tweaked due to several glitches/bugs happening with specific weapons, notably the Saradomin godsword.
