A raise-baddies-from-the-dead nightmare. A long-legged massive figure, The Arch-Vile is propably one of the hardest demons to defeat in the Doom series. It has a fire attack that is similar to the awesome BFG 9000
. If you're in it's line of sight during an attack, you will quickly become Marine flambe. Since one of the Arch-Viles abilities is the resurrection of lesser demons, it is considered wise to kill them off first.
The Arch-Vile's death sound is that of a young girl screaming 'Why' with her pitch toned down and merged with other distortion effects.
