The Asylum Demon is the boss of the Undead Asylum and the first boss the player encounters in the game. If the player manages to kill it in the first encounter, rather than fleeing through the side door, they are awarded with its weapon, the Demon's Great Hammer. This is possible by slowing chipping away at its health with the broken sword hilt or by choosing the starting gift of Black Firebombs, although it is recommended to simply wait until New Game+ to do so. The easiest method is to defeat him is to strip yourself of your armor, two hand your weapon, roll out of his attacks, and stay behind him.
Upon returning to the Undead Asylum, the player has the opportunity to fight the Stray Demon. It is essentially a buffed Asylum Demon but with an AOE attack that effects a large cone-like area in front of him. Defeating the Stray Demon rewards the player with a Titanite Slab.
