The Netherim are a group of demonic creatures that appear in Torchlight II. They are invaders from another plane or dimension who enter the world as a result of the Ember corruption spread by the Alchemist: they show a wide variety of forms and tend to have strange power and alien features like tentacles, insectoid limbs and needle-like teeth, but all of them have purple blood.

They first appear in Act I, mutating and taking over Estherians and the Grand Regent in the Frosted Hills.

The Witch is said to be a cultist transformed by the Netherim.
