Evil Monks are semi-dangerous enemies that appear in several chapters. Fortunately they don't have any added benefits to their attacks. There are three varieties of them :
This variant is the least threatening. They appear in the Atrium Complex. They wear gray, ragged clothes, carry axes and have hoods on their heads completely obscuring their faces. They love to rush at the player with their axes to slice Daniel. When they have little health, they will throw axe at Daniel and die at the same time. Also they appear in Spikes level in Painkiller: Redemption and in Angkor level in Painkiller: Reccuring Evil.
This version appears in the Cathedral. They wear green, ragged and bloodied clothes instead of gray, and carry two small axes instead on one big axe. Their skins are also green. This version's added danger because they everytime will throw one axe at the player without dying. Also they appear in Spikes level in Painkiller: Redemption and in Angkor level in Painkiller: Reccuring Evil.
This version appears in the Old Monastery. They wear gold-black, regal looking clothes and are armed with a torch. This version is dangerous because they can attack the player from distance with sticky, explosive bombs that can do a lot of damage. In the melee, they attack by setting fire to the player using a torch or by creating a flamethrower with their torches, so be sure to keep them at bay. Also they appear in Spikes and Old Ungerground Complex levels in Painkiller: Redemption.
- They may be based off of leaders of satanic cults, especially the Supreme versions.
- They are also encountered in Hell, but are almost invisible and have no added bonuses to their attacks.
