In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the screaming devilkin is a type of fictional monster.

Publication history[edit]

The screaming devilkin first appeared in the original first edition Fiend Folio (1981), credited to Phillip Masters.[1]


A screaming devilkin is a small creature that resembles a mephit in appearance. It is three feet tall, with a long, muscular barbed tail and leathery wings with a 5-foot span. Its legs and arms are disproportionately small and useless for movement or combat. A screaming devilkin always attacks and never willingly breaks off a fight, striking with its cruelly barbed tail. It has a painful howling scream which it uses continuously in the presence of other beings that makes other vocalization inaudible.

Other publishers[edit]

The screaming devilkin appeared in the Tome of Horrors (2002) from Necromancer Games.[2]
