Pseudo-apostles, or simply pseudos, are humans who have been transformed by an apostle into demonic spawn. Each pseudo-apostle usually bears an appearance reflecting its creator. Like true apostles, pseudo-apostles revert to human form after death.
List of Pseudo-ApostlesEdit
The Count transforms Zondark into a pseudo-apostle by forcing the general to ingest a slug-like "daemon", so that he can seek his revenge on Guts while under the demonic influence of his master. Because the slug is an extension of the Count, he can see and speak through his offshoot even after the host's head is destroyed.

- Rosine's "Forest Guardians"
Egg of the Perfect World's SpawnEdit
The apostle known as the Egg of the Perfect World can create a pseudo-apostle by using one of his tendrils to inject his power into an ideal subject. Though a weak apostle himself, the Egg creates physically powerful pseudos whose forms reflect their faith, such as the leader of a pagan cult becoming a goat-headed satyr, as well as Mozgus and his disciples becoming angelic in form.
After transcending his humanity a second time and assuming a demon god state, Ganishka crushes most of his Kushan soldiers under his feet. The crushed corpses mutate into monstrous tentacle creatures resembling the emperor's visage. These spawn devour the remaining survivors of the Kushan invasion army before they are attacked by the Band of the Hawk. After the World Transformation, they cease to be.
