Incubus A Demon Maniac or Facts About The Incubus Demon

Incubus is a male demon, who, according to mythological and legendary traditions, targets sleeping women and engage in sexual activity with them, and impregnates them.

The victim may wake during the intercourse or may not know what happened until their health deteriorates as she carries the parasitic baby of an Incubus demon. It was said that repeated sexual activity with an incubus or succubus might result in deterioration of mental state or even death.


There are Five spine-chilling facts about the incubus demon. 
  1. The name incubus was derived from Late Latin incubo, which means a nightmare induced by such a demon, incubare to lie upon. It is because the Incubus demon attacks their prey at night.
  2. Incubus can be obsessed with a particular victim; thus, women have died due to exhaustion after being abused by the same Incubus repeatedly.
  3. Incubus demons have mentioned in fiction, The Epic of Gilgamesh. Wherein Gilgamesh's father, Lilu, seduces women in their sleep while Lilitu, a female demon, appears to men in their erotic dreams.
  4. Some traditions said that the incubus demon put its victim in a spell and could not move or ask for help.
  5. Study shows that 11% of people may experience a similar to an attack by an incubus demon; however, the term sleep paralysis is being used into such occurrence.

Succubus is the female equivalent of the Incubus demon. They appear in men's dreams and become pregnant by them. Some believe that Incubus demons and Succubus Demons are the same entities, having the ability to shift between male and female forms.

There are different versions of the story of the Incubus demon and Succubus demon around the world.

German folklore's version is called the Alp of Teutonic, a vampire-like creature that also visits its prey at night. It wears a cape called Tarnkappe, which is filled with magical powers.

African folklore, particularly in Zanzibar (semi-autonomous region of Tanzania) they have Popo Bawa, a shape-shifting evil spirit who follows its victim at night from the shadows. The way to stop it from repeatedly attacking is by telling others that you are being victimized by it.

Chilean folklore
, according to the traditional mythology of the Chiloé Province (one of the four provinces in the southern Chilean region of Los Lagos), has the Trauco, a hideous, deformed dwarf who calms nubile young women and unmarried women, seduces them, and impregnates them. 
Hungarian folklore has its Lidérc can be a satanic lover, it flies at night, appears like a flaming light. It has the body of a human but leaves a footstep of a horse.
In South African folklore, the Tikoloshe a dwarf-like, hairy supernatural creature who does sexual acts to women and bites children's toes while asleep.

Norse folklore has a Mare, a demonic being who gives sleeping people nightmares by ridding in their chests.

Western Christianity, an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, Catholic priest, and Doctor of the Church Thomas Aquinas, said that "Still, if some are occasionally begotten from demons, it is not from the seed of such demons, nor their assumed bodies, but from the seed of men, taken for the purpose; as when the demon assumes first the form of a woman, and afterward of a man; so that they take the seed of other things for other generating purposes." He argued against the possibility of children is being perceived through intercourse with demons. 

Are incubus demons and vampires the same?

Incubus demons and vampires are similar that to some, the legend of one has come from the legend of the other. The difference between the two is pretty apparent; a vampire is a zombie-like human, not a demonic being. A vampire is a dead human; an incubus demon is not human at all.
