A demon beast horde is a natural disaster that started with the Age of Darkness. What exactly triggers one is unknown, but it seems that Demon Lord of the Dark Guild is able to somehow incite them. A demon beast horde most closely resembles an endless stampede that is directed towards human settlements. High ranking demon beasts, especially those that have unlocked their Spiritual Wisdom, can also issue commands. An example of this occurred in the most recent demon beast horde that attacked Glory City with the 5 star black gold rank Snow Wind Great Ape.
There have been hundreds of thousands of demon beast hordes since Glory City's founding. They can range from fairly weak with few members, to numbering in the hundreds of millions. The strength of a horde also depends on the highest rank demon beast that appears as well as the overall attribute type. It seems that conflicting attribute types don't often mix into the same horde and that the natural environment has a great influence on the types that will appear.
