The lore of the Nine Hells and the archdevils that rule there is a huge component of the lore of Dungeons and Dragons. They provide and orderly brand of evil, rife with opportunities for conspiracies and fiendish bargains. Tome of Foes gives us information on the Blood War. Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse brought updated versions of previously published archfiends. Descent into Avernus gave us a few more. Chains of Asmodeus, though, is the motherload of fiends.

Some of these archfiends are original creations of Dungeons and Dragons. Many, however, are named after demons from sources like The Lesser Key of Solomon. I’m working on seeing if there are any other archdevils you need for your game.
