    One of the more infamous demon enemies in the Doom series, introduced in Doom II. They can resurrect other enemies, and cast a fire spell that is impossible to evade.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    A long-legged massive figure, the Arch-Vile is one of the more powerful demons in the Doom series. It has a fire attack similar to the BFG 9000; if the player is in the Arch-Vile's line of sight, the fire always hits.

    Because of the Arch-Vile's ability to resurrect lesser demons, it generally becomes the highest-priority target in any battle.


    The Arch-Vile's death sound was made by pitching down and distorting a recording of a young girl screaming 'Why?"
