Hellhounds: What We Know
As we all know, the hellhounds have been an addition to this game since Shi No Numa. This inspiration to add the dogs into the game derived from ancient mythology.

“Hellhounds typically have features such as black fur color, glowing red eyes, super strength or speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, and sometimes even the ability to talk. Hellhounds are often associated with fire, and may have fire-based abilities and appearances, hellhounds appear out of nowhere suddenly and have been known to vanish in a blink of an eye. They are often assigned to guard the entrances to the world of the dead, such as graveyards and Indian burial grounds, or undertake other duties related to the afterlife or the supernatural, such as hunting down lost souls or guarding a supernatural treasure. As legend goes, if one happened to see the hellhound three times, he or she will die an abrupt and unseen death.”

We learned that hellhounds were originally created by both Edward and Dr. Maxis in the Der Reise Complex. It was originally a mistake. The Original hellhound, fluffy, was also pregnant at the time of creation, so that leads to the possibility that fluffy spawned more hellhounds, or that Dr. Maxis had created more.

For info, skip to 3:34, 6:39, and 8:47.

We learn about the behavior of the hellhound and that it does not respond to anything. It killed Dr. Maxis and Samantha even though Dr. Maxis created it.

Traditionally a hellhound would have looked like this:

The creators at treyarch however changed the hellhound to look like this:

The Hellhounds have several different appearances just like the zombies. Some are large and intimidating while others look frail and badly burned. The Hellhounds appear approximately every five rounds, although they are guaranteed to appear somewhere from rounds 5 to 8 (Reference to this comes from a poster board in Der Riese that has pictures of Hellhounds, and says 'Levels 5-8 must remain). It takes three hits from a Hellhound to down you, even if you have Juggernaut. Hellhounds that aren't on fire don't explode. The name "Hellhounds" might be a reference to the term "devildog", a nickname for Marines. This is ironic as Dempsey says "The Devil's Dogs, no match for the US Marines!" In Der Riese, hellhounds spawn without fire. They limp around until they find their target. When they find their target, the hellhound will catch fire and start running. It is quite possible that the dogs are Hyenas, considering that on the chalkboards you can find the word hyena, and that on the posterboard there is a map of Africa.

Their origin in Shi No Numa is unknown, but it is possible that they were teleported there during Dr Maxis’s experiments.
