Devil vs. Demon

Is there a difference between a Devil and a Demon? If so, shouldn't there be an article for Demon as well? Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:53, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Well the way I see it in Touhou is.

  • Youkai (妖怪, yōkai)=Monster
    • Devil (悪魔, akuma)=A type of Youkai
      • Vampire (吸血鬼, kyūketsuki)=A species of Devil
  • Demon (魔物, mamono)=Creatures from a parallel world

Although Westerners translate youkai as demon, it's more along the line of monsters. Anyone else think differently? --Hikaruxz 23:46, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
