Ravana has many brothers and sons as per the answer of this question. I want to know the main characters who were killed by lord Rama's army in the war as per below list. If any other army of lord Rama is there whose name is missing in below but had killed any of them then please add it.

I will be happy and interest with only of Ravan's brothers and his own sons excluding all sons of his brothers .

  • How many of them were killed by lord Rama?
  • How many of them were killed by lord Lakshman?
  • How many of them were killed by lord Hanuman?
  • Any of them were killed by Sugriva?
  • Any of them were killed by Angad?
  • Any of them were killed by Jambavan?
  • Any of them were killed by Nala?
  • Any of them were killed by Nila?
  • Vanara warriors killed many and Rama Lakshmana killed too many. This looks like a too-broad question. You can specify the Rakshasa and by whom he was killed. To answer this, we have to go through total Yuddha Kanda. i.e., 66 chapters covering the war. btw, the answer you linked has some flaws. Ahiravan is not mentioned in Ramayana and also Brahmanda purana. – Sarvabhouma Jan 9 '18 at 16:46
  • I understood your question. Even if we consider people slain by main characters like Rama, Lakshmana etc., that would be many. I suggest you to add Rakshasas names and ask who killed him. By this, we can minimise the answers. – Sarvabhouma Jan 9 '18 at 17:24
  • Ravana had 10 brothers and 3 sisters as said in this answer opposed to the accepted answer.. I think you haven't understood my comment. Rama, Hanuman, Angada, Jambavan killed many Rakshasas. If you give the names of the Rakshasas instead asking how many Rakshasas did Rama, Lakshmana etc., killed. That would add up to half of the Ravana army. – Sarvabhouma Jan 9 '18 at 18:04
  • @KailashChandraPolai - "But I cleaned mentioned as the main characters and only of ravan's relatives" - This thing was not clear. And you said in question that "If any other are there please add them" . Anyway my answer is community WIKI answer. anybody can contribute in it. – SwiftPushkar Jan 9 '18 at 20:22
  • Is this question now limited to Ravana's real brothers and sons only? If so, then how come Virupaksha is in answer who is son of Malyavan (as per Uttarkanda)? – YDS Jan 11 '18 at 5:13

Here is the description of some of the demons killed by Lord Hanuman , Sugreeva and Angada from Valmiki Ramayana Yuddha Kanda . Lord Hanuman killed Nikumbha.Sugreeva kills Virupaksha and Angada Killing Narantaka .

dasharathasutaraakShasendrasuunvo | rbhR^ishataramaagataroShayoH subhiimam || 6-77-23||

Then, while the roaring Nikumbha was killed in battle by Hanuma, there ensued an exceedingly terrific struggle between the enraged Rama and Makaraksha, son of Khara, a ruler of demons.


VI : Yuddha Kanda - Book Of war - Chapter 96 - Sugreeva kills Virupaksha.

विनाशितं प्रेक्ष्य विरूपनेत्रं | महाबलन् तन् हरिपार्थिवेन |
बलन् समस्तन् कपिराक्षसानाम् | उन्मत्तगङ्गाप्रतिमं बभूव || 6-96-36||

vinaashitaM prekShya virUpanetraM | mahaabalan tan haripaarthivena |
balan samastan kapiraakShasaanaam | unmattaga~NgaapratimaM babhUva || 6-96-36 ||

Beholding that mighty Virupaksha killed by Sugreeva, the army of monkeys and demons together looked like the agitated river of Ganga.Beholding that mighty Virupaksha killed by Sugreeva, the army of monkeys and demons together looked like the agitated river of Ganga.


VI : Yuddha Kanda - Book Of Chapter - 97 -Verse 33 -Mahodara killed by Sugreeva.

लग्नमुत्कर्षतः खड्गन् खड्गेन कपिकुञ्जरः |
जहार सशिरस्त्राणन् कुण्डलोपहितन् शिरः || 6.97.33||

lagnamutkarShataH khaDgan khaDgena kapiku~njaraH
jahAra sashirastrANan kuNDalopahitan shiraH | ||6-97-33||

Even while Mahodara was extracting his sword which had got struck in the shield, Sugreeva severed with his own sword, Mahodara's head, which was adorned with ear-rings and helmet.


Book VI : Yuddha Kanda - Book Of War - Chapter - 69 - Angada Killing Narantaka .

थदान्तरिक्षे त्रिदश उत्तमानाम् | वन ओकसाम् चैव महा प्रणादः |
बभूव तस्मिन् निहते अग्र्य वीरे |नर अन्तके वालि सुतेन सम्ख्ये || 6.69.95||

thadaantarikSe tridasha uttamaanaam | vana okasaam caiva mahaa praNaadaH | babhuuva tasmin nihate agrya viire |nara antake vaali sutena samkhye || 6-69-95 ||

When that Narantaka of great prowess was killed by Angada in battle, the chiefs of celestials and the monkeys too then emitted a great roar of triumph in the sky.


Book VI : Yuddha Kanda - Book Of War - Chapter 67 - Verse 177 - Lord Rama Kills Kumbhakarna

स देवलोकस्य तमो निहत्य |सूर्यो यथा राहुमुखाद्विमुक्तः |
तथा व्यभासीद्धरिसैन्यमध्ये | निहत्य रामो यधि कुम्भकर्णम् || 6-67-177||

sa devalokasya tamo nihatya | suuryo yathaa raahumukhaadvimuktaH |
tathaa vyabhaasiiddharisainyamadhye | nihatya raamo yadhi kumbhakarNam || 6-67-177||

Having destroyed Kumbhakarna in battle, that Rama shone in the midst of the army of monkeys, in the same way as the sun shines in the midst of the celestial world, having destroyed darkness, duly getting delivered from the mouth of Rahu.


Book V : Sundara Kanda - Sarga 47 - Lord Hanumana kills Aksha (Ravana's own son)

निहत्य तम् वज्र सुत उपम प्रभम् | कुमारम् अक्षम् क्षतज उपम ईक्षणम् |

तत् एव वीरो अभिजगाम तोरणम् | कृत क्षणः काल इव प्रजा क्षये || ५-४७-३८

Killing that Aksha, possessing a lustre equal to that of Jayanta the son of Indra the lord of celestials and having his eyes resembling blood, the heroic Hanuma reached the same archy door way again, like Yama the lord of death expecting in a moment any mortal getting destroyed by him.


Book VI : Yuddha Kanda - Sarga 91 - Lakshmana kills Indrajit or Meghanada (Ravana's own son)

रुधिरक्लिन्नगात्रस्तु लक्ष्मणः शुभलक्षणः |

बभूव हृष्टस्तं हत्वा शक्रजेतारमाहवे || ९१-६-१

Lakshmana, endowed with auspicious bodily marks, whose limbs were drenched in blood, felt rejoiced on having killed Indrajit in combat.

  • @KailashChandraPolai - Yes added the shloka in answer. Will update the answer and will add more content later on. :-) – SwiftPushkar Jan 9 '18 at 15:45
  • What about Khara, Dushana - Ravana's other cousin brothers, who were killed by Rama in Aranya Kanda. Plus Ravana's own sons Atikaya, Trishira and Prahasta, who were killed by Lakshmana, Rama and Nila respectively. In other versions of Ramayana, especially Adhyatma, Ahiravana was killed by Panchamukhi Hanuman by stomping on him. – user9072 Jan 11 '18 at 5:05
  • Plus Devantaka was also killed by Hanuman. – user9072 Jan 11 '18 at 5:07

    @ArkaprabhaMajumdar is it mentioned in sarga 58 that Prahasta was son of Ravana? One Prahasta was Army general and fought against many including Aranyak, Mandhata and Kartvirya Arjuna...this was not Ravana's son.. However there may be other individual with same name.. That's why i said give source which says that the one who was killed by Nila was son of Ravana.. – YDS Jan 11 '18 at 12:09
