In demonology, Orobas is a powerful Great Prince of Hell, having twenty legions of demons under his control.

He supposedly gives true answers of things past, present and to come, divinity, and the creation of the world; he also confers dignities and prelacies, and the favour of friends and foes. Orobas is faithful to the conjurer, does not permit that any spirit tempts him, and never deceives anyone.

He is depicted as a horse that changes into a man under the conjurer's request.

The name could come from Latin 'orobias', a type of incense.

In popular culture[edit]

Orobas is Monster in My Pocket #78; there, he is described as an "oracle" rather than a demon.

Orobas is the name of a Dragon Knight in the Game Divinity 2:Ego Draconis; he was ruler of a very successful area named The Orobas Fjords, and was viewed as a god by some.

Orobas is referenced in the DVD extras of the horror film Lovely Molly as the likely agent of the film's main character's demonic possession.

Orobas is also referenced in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona video game series, as a persona that can be summoned by the main character.
