Hellhound was a species of canine-like demon employed as foot soldiers who fed exclusively on brains.[1]


In 1999, Tucker Wells raised four hellhounds to massacre the Prom of Sunnydale High School's Class of '99 after he a girl rejected him when he asked her to the dance. He trained the hellhounds by showing them various prom-related films, forcing them into going berserk at the sight of formal wear and mirror balls.[1]

Buffy Summers prevented them from invading the dance by hunting and killing each one of them. She used a crossbow, a knife, and broke its neck.[1]

Powers and abilities[]

Like most demons, hellhounds had super strength and agility. Their primary weapons were their claws.[1]

Their blood was also used by witches in a tracking spell for finding vampires.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

  • In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Xbox video game, hellhounds were a lot more animalistic and had features more alike actual canines, sporting longer pointed snouts and even howling like wolves during battle.
