Default Demon cards

I have a question about what monsters count as Demons.

Does every monster with the word Demon (or Devil, Daemon, etc.) in its name or description count as a Demon?

Does every monster that looks demonic count as a Demon?

Finally, do monsters that are supposed to be Demons but aren't explicitly marked as such (like the Chaos daemons in the Warhammer sets) count?

We consider any monster with "Demon", "Devil", or "from Hell" in its name or flavor text as a Demon Monster.

(Note: some irrelevant and confusing posts were deleted.)

So here's the thing -- Demons aren't nearly as common a monster type as Undead. Anything that is labeled a Demon obviously counts as a Demon, and I would be OK saying that monsters with Demon or Devil in the title count as well even if they aren't explicitly labeled as such.

Munchkin Warhammer Chaos monsters are definitely NOT Demons; they are Chaos monsters. Trust me, you don't need to make them even worse than they already are.

If you aren't playing a set that has printed rules about Demon-type monsters, you can safely ignore them if you don't want to bother. The chances are that you'll see only one or two at most during the game, anyway.

Again, thanks for the confirmation.
