The doomguard, or doom guard, are a type of demonic warrior of the ered'ruin species that used to work as Archimonde's personal escort, and continue to serve the Burning Legion with great fervor.
Powerful and deliberate, these winged aberrations are known across the cosmos for their brutality. The doomguard are utterly devoted to their pit lord masters and revel in the destruction of worlds.

As well as being encountered as a hostile NPC, the Doomguard is also summonable in World of Warcraft as warlock minion. It was originally summoned through  Bane of Doom or Ritual of Doom, both of which required a character to die in order to summon the Doomguard. While Ritual of Doom allowed the warlock to sacrifice the life of a party member in exchange for a controllable Doomguard, Bane of Doom was a damage over time effect which would only summon the Doomguard if the target was killed by its damage. Unlike the Ritual's tamed Doomguard, the Doomguard summoned by Bane of Doom was not under the warlock's control, and would immediately attack the warlock upon spawning. The Doomguard was quite capable of killing the warlock and his allies, and had to be enslaved via the warlock's Enslave Demon spell in order to control him, although he could resist enslavement, or break free later on and begin attacking the warlock again.

Later expansions saw the Doomguard changed into a simpler DPS cooldown, directly summonable as a temporary minion. While no longer prone to attempts to kill the summoning warlock, the Doomguard retains his soundbites from his earlier incarnation, and will occasionally make remarks regarding his plans for the warlock's demise as soon as he can break free of their control.
