Termagant was a demonic creature falsely believed by Medieval Europeans to be a deity worshipped by Muslims (who, in reality, strictly forbid such worship - being loyal only to Allah).

Nevertheless the image of Termagant was utilized heavily in medieval times and in some ways became a symbolic villain in the same manner Baphomet would do, both being largely fictional beings that over time grew into something much more dangerous (in Termagant's case it was ignorance and xenophobia).

Termagant also become immortalized as a term used to describe evil-tempered women (such as stereotypical "witches" in fiction) - which was ironic since the original Termagant was male.
