Arallu are a type of jinn in Assryo-Babylonian demonology that were born from the bile of Ea (Enki) and the stagnant water under the Kur. They are described as "the storm, which breaks loose with fury in the skies" or "the rising wind, which casts darkness over the bright day" and are depicted as having a human male body, the head and paws of a lion, large wings, and small goat horns upon their head. Arallu are extremely powerful and immortal beings and have the power to cause disease, corrupt the unity of family, inspire criminal acts, and kill livestock. When they possessed a person it requires a very powerful exorcist was required to exorcize and cast them out. Arallu hated mankind and there was no way to appease them.

They are adversaries of the gods, especially the moon god, Sin (Nanna). According to mythology, an eclipse is cause when they attack him. They tie him up in a sack, causing him to have to fight his way out. Fortunately, there is a finite number of arallu, as they are all male and cannot reproduce.
