The Suffering is an monstrous creature featured in Darksiders II.
A seemingly high ranking beast in the Destroyer's army (or at least an incredibly powerful one), the Suffering is a repulsive abomination with four arms, a head comprised of human skulls and a tongue with numerous, skull-like growths. Phenomenally strong, this beast is capable of demolishing an entire squad of Angels with little difficulty. A single one of these monsters confronted a Hellguard squadron shortly after Death's brief sojourn to Earth, and engaged in combat with the leader of the Hellguard; Uriel. The monster was able to take hits from her holy blade with no apparent damage, and incapacitated her with a single swipe before nearly killing her. However, it fled the battle upon seeing Death. These monsters feed on the corpses of humans and mutate them into the Swarm, a horde of fast-moving zombie-like creatures which they are capable of controlling with their roars. Death kills several of these monsters whilst exploring Earth and a single Suffering is fought in the penultimate round of the Crucible.
