Drakengard Wiki

Subhuman, also known as Demihuman, is a term used to refer to creatures such as orcs, trolls, ogres, and goblins.



The Empire had many subhumans as mercenary soldiers. They're mainly comprised of orcs, goblins, trolls, and ogres, and can be mostly found in forests, deserts, and valleys. Many of them gather at the Coliseum to fight for a prize.

Drakengard 2[]

The Monster armies are mainly comprised of goblins, hobgoblins and shaman goblins, with ogres and minotaur as extra muscle. The Knights of the Seal and the rebel armies likewise utilize subhuman monsters as a part of their reserve troops. Other subhuman races do not make an appearance. 

Drakengard 3[]

The Intoners and Warlords utilize Ogres, Imps, and Trolls in their armed forces. Three was known to breed or artificially create new monsters such as Ogres, to Zombie Gigas to the cyclops. Elves are seen using air ships to flee from Four's onslaught. Orcs were briefly seen in the Utahime Five trying to kill One.

Members of the Subhuman Family[]

It is unclear as to what defines a subhuman in the Drakengard universe. However, based on the few times it is used, several types of creatures can be described as such.


  • The term "subhuman/demi-human" was rarely using throughout the series, and only in passing. They are generally called monsters.
  • It is unclear whether Vampyres are considered subhuman or undead.
  • Goblins, ogres, trolls and minotaur are either referred to by name or generally called monsters in Drakengard 2 and Drakengard 3. Likely exempting Faeries and Elves from that distinction.
