"Shit! Space monkey!" ~ Sam
The Aurigan Cave Demon is an enemy that appears in Serious Sam 3: BFE.
The Aurigan Cave Demon, "Cave Demon" for short, or "Space monkey" by Sam, is the most atypical monkey-like enemy in the Serious Sam series. It does not charge at the player like most enemies do, but instead lurks on columns, waiting for its opportunity to leap towards the player and attack. If there are no columns around, then they will instead latch onto walls or jump onto the roof of buildings. They can leap great distances as well.
"These primarily nocturnal predators originate from dark and cold caves in the bowels of Beta Aurigae in the Sirius Supercluster and are known to be bloodthirsty and dangerous. Their sharp claws enable them to cling to walls and ceilings, and wait in ambush until unsuspecting prey is near. Using their strong hind legs, they jump down on the victim from far away. Refraining from open fights, if the victim fights back, they will quickly jump back away and hide in the dark. When they lurk hidden in the dark, only their glowing eyes give away their presence. Strike them quickly when they attack, before they jump away and hide again."
- Aurigan Cave Demons usually don't appear with other enemies. When they do, they are low-priority targets. Trying to chase after them leaves you vulnerable to more dangerous and aggressive enemies.
- When a Cave Demon jumps at you, shoot it quickly before it gets the chance to hide away.
- Sidestep or move backwards when they jump at you.
