Loose Devils (散魔) [San Mo] –
While in the Mortal Realm, Devils who had attained at least the Yuanying stage in their martial cultivation, and had their physical bodies scattered into pieces during their Six of Nine Heavenly Tribulations or Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations, but managed to preserve their Yuanying in the process become Loose Devils.
These Loose Devils, in turn, have twelve Heavenly Tribulations. Loose Devils of the First, Second and Third Tribulation have varying degrees of power. Loose Devils of the Fourth Tribulation typically have the same capabilities as a First Tier Heavenly Devil, and respectively, Loose Devils of the Twelfth Tribulation typically have the same capabilities as a Ninth Tier Heavenly Devil. When Loose Devils overcome their Twelfth Tribulation, they will ascend and become Devil Kings.
