The Lair of the Succubus is the tenth level (slot nine) of Catacomb Armageddon (1992). It is set in a cracked barren realm, home to the dreadful but seductive succubus.


"This map has a rather boring theme (especially when compared to the last one) that resembles some kind of demonic plane. There are pox and mages here - and another very creative enemy: The succubi (A succubus is a demon that disguises itself as a beautiful woman and tries to seduce and lure men into their demise). Map design-wise the level is quite ok, though."

  • A succubus is a demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend), that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even death. In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.
  • The design for the succubus, at least from the waist up, is similar to that later used for Nevan in Devil May Cry 3.
