The loyal disciples of Illidan Stormrage, the Demon Hunters of World of Warcraft are the embodiment of fel and chaotic magics designed to challenge the Burning Legion. The Illidari Demon Hunters embraced the practices of Illidan Stormrage in transmuting fel and chaotic magics in their bodies to empower themselves and develop demonic traits. The first set of Demon Hunters made an oath to Illidan to use their newly gained powers in following his path and utilizing their chaos against the Legion. They have undergone a painful ritual to blind themselves in exchange for spectral visions that allow them to prey on the demons they wish to extinguish. Their bodies became tormented and corrupted, sprouting demonic wings and horns which, in turn, gave them great agility and demonic capabilities, making them a formidable opponent in battle.

In this guide, we’ll tackle a brief history of the Demon Hunters. Readers will be guided to a list of our Top Male and Female Demon Hunter Names. Also, we’re adding a list of some Funny Demon Hunter Names, a list of some Good Demon Hunter Names, and some Badass Demon Hunter Names.

Becoming a Demon Hunter

Illidan Stormrage was the first Demon Hunter to exist in Azeroth. He transformed into a demon when he consumed the fel energies of the Skull of Gul’dan to defeat dreadlord Tichondrius. During his escape in Outland, numerous Night Elves sought him for they lost everything since the invasion of the Burning Legion. These elves devoted themselves to avenging their race against the Legion. On the other hand, numerous squads of Blood Elves became demon hunters as they were sent by Prince Kael’thas himself.

It is said that only one out of every five elves survive the Demon Hunter ritual. Those with a weak heart and will became consumed with fel energies and became insane or commit suicide. The Demon Hunter training begins with the trainee slaying a demon, eating its heart, and drinking its blood. The ingested demon will bond with the host and corrupt their souls effectively receiving visions of the Burning Legion. With the horrors, they experience when gaining visions of the Burning Legion, they started to tear their eyes out and are put into a coma. The fel energies flowing in their bodies will start to mutate their physical characteristics such as gaining scales, horns, and claws. When they awaken, their spectral sight will start to emerge and they are granted sealing tattoos to refrain their inner demon from overwhelming their minds. To keep themselves free from their inner demonic thoughts, they mark their bodies with additional arcane runes to counter overflowing fel energies.

Demon Hunters always crave fel power and demonic flesh and they always live with torment from the ritual they experienced. Few Demon Hunters succumb to the fel energy and became demons themselves and lash out to any living beings. Taking this Metamorphosis form is a dangerous choice because it risks them from being devoured in mind by the demonic will within them, taking over their bodies.

Demon Hunter Appearance

Demon Hunters’ base forms are either Night Elf or Blood Elf. They have horns that vary differently in terms of shapes, style, and size. Demon Hunter rituals are unique for each elf who undertake them, therefore their fel tattoo patterns are different and specific for each Demon Hunter. A Demon Hunter assuming a Metamorphosis form only retain their unique tattoo and hair color. A Havoc Demon Hunter will start to sprout demonic wings from their backs and will have a shadowy aura in their faces, while a Vengeance Demon Hunter will grow demonic spikes in their backs with the presence of fel energies burning between the horns. Their claws become sharper and their feet are more beastly.

Check out the rankings below.

Rank

Name

Gender

Description

1

Valrath

/val-rat/

Male

This name strongly implies that the Demon Hunter is wrathful, powerful, and full of hatred. We first include this name as one of the badass Demon Hunter names and we find it awesome and strong that’s why we are placing it on the top spot in this list.

2

Darachel

/da-ra-kel/

Male

We included this name as part of the good Demon Hunter names. The name sounds angelic and holy; someone who upholds righteousness and justice even at the cost of sacrificing his sanctity for more power.

3

Velerion

/ve-ler-yon/

Male

What we like about this name, aside from how elven it sounds, is its background lore. We envisioned him as a Night Elf who sought power only to return to Azeroth and further destroy the lurking or remaining demon threats.

4

Aelrah

/a-yel-ra/

Female

The name sounds elven and it gives off a nicer personality when knowing the fact that she is now a Demon Hunter. Additionally, we like the idea of an external character who supported Altrius the Sufferer in search of new leadership for the Illidari.

5

Getving

/get-ving/

Male

This name is one of our favorite badass names on this list. The name sounds forceful and intimidating and we see it being used by a character with uncontrolled power. Oh, did we mentioned he devours demons and other creatures?

6

Altva’ar

/al-va-ar/

Male

This name is perfect for a Demon Hunter-turned Night Elf who became savage and unrestrained. His loyalty is now in question. Aside from the nice background story, we like the name as it is; greatly suggesting that your character is corrupted or evil.

7

Celodrim

/ke-lo-drim/

Male

We described Celodrim as one of the “personally” picked Spellbreakers on the ranks of the Blood Elves. He is the only survivor out of the five test elves who have undergone the ritual. Aside from the nice lore, we have a liking for this name. It sounds like an elf name adopted from the famous Middle Earth of Tolkien.

8

Thradazir

/tra-da-zir/

Male

We described this name as a loyalist of the Betrayer as he followed him in his wars in Outland and Northrend. For his faithful service, he was guaranteed a slot to become a Demon Hunter. Overall, we love the way this name is constructed. It sounds noble, gallant, and loyal.

9

Dylarei

/day-la-rey/

Female

The name sounds feminine and highly suggests a female Demon Hunter. We cored her story about her fascination with Illidan’s beliefs and teachings, which give way for her to become a Demon Hunter under his service.

10

Luskkav

/lus-kav/

Male

We are including in this list a name for a Night Elf who had a change of heart regarding Illidan. Luskkav is one of the pursuers of Illidan when he escaped into the Outland. When he discovered that Illidan’s source of power is great, he immediately abandoned his mission and ascended himself as a Demon Hunter by doing the rituals by himself. Sounds crazy, right? That’s why we find his character a real badass Demon Hunter.
