It doesn't sound like they are fighting each other in that case.

In a game setting of mine "demons" are the offspring of escaped dream spirits of the moon goddess and the Shining Ones, rebel creations of the sun god (which are essentially "devils" in this kind of system but not called that).

There is something in the dungeon with DR5, 20HP, reach C and does 1d6 damage from an attack at skill 18.
Just because it is a fact that the word "demon" isn't taxonomic in the real world doesn't make it a game rule.
