[[folder:Usamaro]]
->Voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Creator/CassandraLee (EN)

A child-like demon Rin found who seems to have amnesia.
----
* AnimalMotifs: A rabbit, which is why he is named ''Usa''maro because "Usa" means "Rabbit".
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Even demonic children apparently. [[spoiler: Except this is a ''bad'' thing since he is too innocent to understand how much damage his attempts to "help" those around him actually causes.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: A really friendly blond once he gets used to you.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: He reverses time and destroys himself to save the city.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Considering his memory loss he seems to be the victim of it.[[spoiler:.. Except since he is the very same demon from the fairytale this is actually his trademark technique.]]
* PureIsNotGood: Just because he is sweet and innocent child who just wants to help people doesn't mean he isn't a threat to others. [[spoiler: Just ask the last town he "helped".]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[TechnicolorEyes Mostly red at least]], like a rabbit's... But he is demon, which should be warning enough.
* RetGone: [[spoiler: erases himself, and only Rin and Liu remember him.]]
* TimeLord: Kinda, since officially he is considered to be "kin of Saemel, King of Time" he can be considered one of these. [[spoiler: His ability to "eat" memories is apparently based on erasing the event from a person's personal history, or changing past events so the person doesn't remember them happening so his connection to "Time" isn't that strange.]]

[[spoiler: His ability to "eat" memories is apparently based on erasing the event from a person's personal history, or changing past events so the person doesn't remember them happening so his connection to "Time" isn't that strange.]]

->Voiced by: Music/MegumiHayashibara (JP), Creator/CheramiLeigh (EN)

The Anime Exclusive version of Yuri Egin is detailed below. The manga version has yet to be revealed.

A lower-second class exorcist who gave birth to Rin and Yukio. She was known as the "Witch of the Forest" and was ordered to be [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake]]. This lead to the Blue Night.
----
* AllLovingHeroine: She believes that humans and demons can co-exist. In her view, the only thing preventing this from happening is a refusal to understand each other.
* BeautyMark: She had a mole under her eyes. Her son Yukio got them from her.
* BurnTheWitch: She was tied to a stake and ordered to be burned. [[spoiler: Her demonic lover prevented that from happening.]]
* ButNotTooForeign: Her father is definitely not Japanese, but her name suggests that her mother was.
* CanonForeigner: She was first established in the anime's continuity. The manga version has nothing except but her name and rank so far revealed.
* DeathByChildbirth: She died giving birth to her sons.
* DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu: Yes, yes she did. [[spoiler: In the anime, this is why the Blue Night happened - Satan refused to let her be murdered over this trope, and searched for a host within the nearby clergy. All of them disintegrated immediately, except for her own father.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Including demons, which caused her to be known as the "Witch of the forest" and why she could bond with SATAN of all people.
* TheLostLenore: To Satan. In the anime, [[spoiler:he wishes to create a world where humans and demons can coexist because that's what Yuri wished for]].
* MissingMom: Her sons never met her.
* MoralityPet: To Satan. She helped him understand the meaning of life and he cared about her enough to [[spoiler:cause the Blue Night in an attempt to save her from her execution]].
* PosthumousCharacter: We only learn about her through flashbacks.
* SealedEvilInACan: [[spoiler:She was able to host Satan, so they bonded, one thing led to another... and then we got Rin and Yukio.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: In a more literal sense, which is why she wound up having his kids.
* WideEyedIdealist: Enthusiastic in her belief that demons and humans could co-exist despite the eternal war going on, and heedless of criticism. [[spoiler: Even Satan loved the ideology - unfortunately, he got it a bit twisted around by the time he could act on it]].

A child-like demon Rin found who seems to have amnesia.
----

* AnimalMotifs: A rabbit, which is why he is named ''Usa''maro because "Usa" means "Rabbit".
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Even demonic children apparently. [[spoiler: Except this is a ''bad'' thing since he is too innocent to understand how much damage his attempts to "help" those around him actually causes.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: A really friendly blond once he gets used to you.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: He reverses time and destroys himself to save the city.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Considering his memory loss he seems to be the victim of it.[[spoiler:.. Except since he is the very same demon from the fairytale this is actually his trademark technique.]]
* PureIsNotGood: Just because he is sweet and innocent child who just wants to help people doesn't mean he isn't a threat to others. [[spoiler: Just ask the last town he "helped".]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[TechnicolorEyes Mostly red at least]], like a rabbit's... But he is demon, which should be warning enough.
* RetGone: [[spoiler: erases himself, and only Rin and Liu remember him.]]
* TimeLord: Kinda, since officially he is considered to be "kin of Saemel, King of Time" he can be considered one of these. [[spoiler: His ability to "eat" memories is apparently based on erasing the event from a person's personal history, or changing past events so the person doesn't remember them happening so his connection to "Time" isn't that strange.]]

* AffablyEvil: Introduces himself very politely despite breaking the seals of True Cross Order branches around the world.
* AnimeHair: Underneath the helmet, has a point in his hair similar to Amaimon's, though not as well-defined.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: He's second in the demonic hierarchy of Gehenna, right below ''Satan'' himself. Even in his sickly state, Mephisto states that he, the 3rd strongest demon in Gehenna, is no match for Lucifer.
* BigEntrance:
** Makes projections of lights and [[spoiler:destroys the barrier around the academy]] when he appeared.
** Even later when [[spoiler: introducing himself personally to Yukio]] he makes a big entrance despite the circumstances!
* {{Bishonen}}: Fitting his [[PrettyBoy normal description]], though despite his pale (blond or [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white]]) hair he still [[StrongFamilyResemblance looks a lot like his siblings]] complete with a {{Ahoge}} like bit of hair shaped like a wing that matches the pattern established by Mephisto and Amaimon and a fluffy tail like Rin's.
* CoolHelmet: Mephisto compliments him on it.
* DarkLordOnLifeSupport: Though only seen in the shadows in the beginning, it is heavily assumed that, during his preparation for his BigEntrance, he's shown to have been connected to a heart monitor and IV drip. [[spoiler: When we do see all of him it's clear his condition is ''much'' worse than what was implied before.]]
* TheDragon: Hints from some of his dialogue suggest he's this to Satan.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Expresses utter disgust towards [[spoiler:Gedouin and his cruelty before vaporizing him for his disobedient actions]].

[[spoiler: Judging by what he tells his scientists about making a "perfect body for his father" he might just be suffering a weaker version of [[SuperPowerMeltdown Satan's tendency of destroying his hosts]], like what Amaimon displayed before by releasing his Demon Heart.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler: Vaporizes Gedouin for disobeying him one too many times. The little man definitely had it coming]].
* KnightOfCerebus: Even more so than the previous one (Amaimon), as Lucifer's first appearance even in ''shadow'' is when things start to get very serious. Come his first full on appearance, and CerebusSyndrome really starts kicking in for the series.
* KnightTemplar: Genuinely believes that mixing the worlds of Gehenna and Assiah will solve the world's ills. Mephisto disagrees, believing that the desire to overcome one's bad situation makes humanity unique.
* LightEmUp: When he makes his entrance and subsequently destroys the barriers of True Cross Order branches around the world.
* LightIsNotGood: Leader of the big baddies and the King of Light, check.
* MeaningfulName: Lucifer means "Light-Bearer", as mentioned above under Rin.

He knew that this would cause Tatsuma to show up and try to defeat the Impure King using his familiar Kurara.

* ManChild: His reasons for being with the Illuminati boils down to him throwing a tantrum over how he was never accepted by his family and never could match their expectations. His age regression after [[spoiler: eating Karura]] just makes it more obvious and worse.

* AnimeHair: He has a horn/spike hairstyle similar to [[ShamanKing Tao Ren's]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's only 7th or 8th highest ranking of ''all'' demons in terms of strength, making him one of the ''weakest'' of the demon kings, but he is ''still'' a demon king.
* BerserkButton: A good way to get him serious or into a fight is to laugh at him. So don't laugh at him. ''Ever.''
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He may be odd but he can break a man's arm by poking it and kill any exorcist who tries to stop him.
* BigBrotherBully: In a matter of speaking, towards Rin. They're half-brothers after all, and he beat the kid senseless.
* BigEater: He is often seen eating junk food and candy whenever he appears in but is one of the skinniest members of the cast.
* BigOlEyebrows: Absurdly shaped and large.
* PutOnABus: Disappears after his big fight with Rin in ch13. [[spoiler: He reappears later briefly in both ch39 and ch44, before finally returning at the end of ch82.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He will start talking about surfing while standing on a speeding roller coaster in the middle of a fight or use his fingers as pretend binoculars while spying on his little brother.
* CreepyBlueEyes: Possibly to help show he is one of Satan's children; see occult blue eyes and adaption dye job above.
* CurbstompBattle: [[spoiler:In chapter 39, he knocks Rin out in a single hit going into his true form, making it clear that Rin is not stronger than him]]. In the anime, [[spoiler:the positions are reversed, as Rin is capable of [[OneHitKill incinerating him in a single blow]]]].
* DemonicPossession: Technically, for a demon to stay in Assiah aside from being born, they have to do this. An Omake stated he's possessing some poor guy.
* DishingOutDirt: As the [[RedBaron King of Earth]].
* DissonantSerenity: The whole time he's fighting Rin and the others, he seems...calm. Amused. He also lets out a cheerful "yaaaay" when Rin unsheathes Kurikara.
* DullSurprise: Despite having almost 1000 years experience with human emotions he hasn't quite got the hang of [[FrozenFace facial expressions]] yet.
* {{Familiar}}: His is a large hobgoblin called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Behemoth]].
* FangsAreEvil: His seem more obvious than most because of how often they're shown, since he is often seen eating.
* FunSize: In the anime he can turn into a hamster.
* HellishPupils: Like most demons his pupils are slitted.
* IShallTauntYou: Or in this case "I will pretend to play a Japanese version of tag to get you to fight me" or "I will target your LoveInterest and pretend to marry her (or chew her lips off) to make you take fighting me more seriously".
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: While his human host appears to be a teenager, the 10th volume of the manga mentions Amaimon has been using him for almost a thousand years.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: By [[spoiler: Berserk!Rin]] in the anime and [[spoiler: Mephisto]] in the manga. Since he is [[{{Immortality}} a demon]] neither case actually kills him, only succeeding in [[spoiler: destroying his host body]] and [[spoiler: turning him into a [[HumanPincushion Demon Pincushion]] respectively.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Like his brother, he's primarily interested in simply doing something that doesn't bore him.
* KnightOfCerebus: As soon as he shows up, things start to get dangerous for Rin. More so on his second appearance, where he seriously threatens and even harms the main cast and forces Rin to use his [[HellFire Blue Flames]] to save them all...resulting in the execution order over his head.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He is at ''least'' a thousand years old.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: His true demon form revealed with his "Demon Heart" has very lizard-like qualities like his tail design, scaled arms, and green coloration.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: [[http://www.mangareader.net/406-54591-16/ao-no-exorcist/chapter-13.html Byoooooo~n]].
* SealedEvilInACan: Mephisto essentially has a tight leash on Amaimon at all times and basically gets called out to "train" Rin or some other errand.
* SuperPowerMeltdown: Why he, and most demons, hide their Demon Heart. [[spoiler: Even throwing one [[KamehameHadoken super punch]] was enough to [[PowerStrainBlackout knock himself out]] because of the [[PsychicNosebleed strain]] it put on his host.]]
* SuperStrength: [[FingerPokeOfDoom A poke]] from him ''breaks bone''. He also launches Rin through a ''roller coaster'' by just flicking him.
* SweetTooth: He is often seen eating candy, possibly due to how his [[PunnyName name]] sounds like "Amai Mono" which means "sweet things" in japanese.
* TaremeEyes: An inversion where a [[GenderInvertedTrope male villain]] has 'em.
* TranquilFury: Since his face isn't that expressive he winds up looking really calm even if he's in the middle of punching someone's FACE off.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Similar to how Mephisto has purple hair and Rin has blue hair it is most likely to help show he is a demon.

to:

* AnimeHair: AffablyEvil: He is always very polite, even when he [[spoiler:betrays both the exorcists and Mamushi]]. In fact, he arguably became even more polite ''after'' he revealed himself to be evil.
* BatmanGambit: Pulls one off by [[spoiler:obtaining both demon eyes through a bit of [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] and [[TricksterArchetype trickery]], then using them to deliberately awaken the [[SealedEvilinaCan Impure King]]. He knew that this would cause Tatsuma to show up and try to defeat the Impure King using his familiar Kurara. This weakened Tatsuma, allowing Toudou to kill him (who was saved by a revived Karura) and allow him to eat Karura to gain his power. It had all gone according to plan]].
* BreakingSpeech: Gives one [[spoiler:and more on a regular basis]] to Yukio.
** First one: after revealing himself as an exorcist fallen to a demon, he mentioned he was always in the shadow of his father and brothers, and he never could voice his doubts about his path. It rattles Yukio, but Yukio decides that he is not Saburota, but himself.
** Second one: In their next confrontation, Saburota says that [[spoiler: Yukio's father and brother are what have defined his paths in life and that he had no real choice in his path, leading him to despise his brother for having no idea what agony he went through. Yukio admits that he does love and hate his brother, but above all else he hates himself the most]].
** THIRD one: Following his discovery of [[spoiler: Yukio's [[OccultBlueEyes blue eyes]] (after almost killing the kid) and after Yukio thought Saburota was destroyed, [[FromASingleCell Saburota regenerates]] and comments that self-loathing is the first step to becoming a demon and that Yukio's true nature is that of a demon.

* CompleteImmortality: The logical conclusion
of strength, making him one [[spoiler: combining FromASingleCell, FountainOfYouth, and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld how demons tend to have extremely long lifespans]]]].
* TheCorrupter: He convinced a loyal member
of the ''weakest'' Kyoto Branch Office to give him the dangerous Right Eye of the Impure King. He is actively attempting to manipulate Yukio for unknown but definitely unsavory ends.
* DrivenByEnvy: Claims that his major reason for becoming Illuminati is because of this towards his elder brothers and father.
* EvilFeelsGood: He implies this much while talking to Yukio. [[spoiler:Said to Yukio almost verbatim as "it's nice to be a demon"]].
* ManChild: His reasons for being with the Illuminati boils down to him throwing a tantrum over how he was never accepted by his family and never could match their expectations. His age regression after [[spoiler: eating Karura]] just makes it more obvious and worse.
* ManipulativeBastard: He got Yukio to talk with him during their fights despite [[IdiotBall Yukio knowing, and earlier explained to Rin and Shiemi]] how dangerous talking with a demon can be.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He was first seen as an Upper Second Class exorcist with a timid personality who provided some [[MrExposition exposition]] about an incident involving one
of the demon kings, eyes. He seemed like an incompetent, but reasonably brave and decent, guy. And then it turns out it was all an act. He had in fact already turned traitor and only exposed himelf as TheMole in the chapter in which he was introduced. He has since shown considerable [[NotSoHarmlessVillain competence]] and [[BatmanGambit cunning]]. He is now [[ManipulativeBastard one to watch out for]].
* StalkerWithoutACrush: In his own words, [[spoiler:[[VillainTakesAnInterest
he is ''still'' "very interested" in Yukio]]]].
* StartOfDarkness: He described his. He wanted to be like his father and brother, but was discontent with living a life he felt was shaped by others. Ultimately he became
a demon king.

* AffablyEvil: Introduces himself very politely despite breaking the seals of True Cross Order branches around the world.
* AnimeHair: Underneath the helmet, has a point in his hair similar to Amaimon's, though not as well-defined.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: He's second in the demonic hierarchy of Gehenna, right below ''Satan'' himself. Even in his sickly state, Mephisto states that he, the 3rd strongest demon in Gehenna, is no match for Lucifer.

The Grandfather to Rin and Yukio on their mother's side. He's first seen during the Blue Night in episode one and absent until the final arc. Having lost his daughter, Rin and Yukio's mother to a witch hunt, he has good reasons for his prejudice against all things demon, as well as some ill will towards members of the [[ChurchMilitant True Cross Order]].[[spoiler: Though his telling of the story isn't entirely true.]]
----

* BigBad: He's arguably this for the Anime along with Satan, as most of the bad things that happen in the anime's continuity, directly or not, can be blamed on him.
* CanonForeigner: Added exclusively to the anime for the sake of the GeckoEnding.
* ChurchMilitant: The True Cross Order was always this, but after he's appointed as [[spoiler:the new Pope]] he [[UpToEleven brings it up to eleven]] by giving high school students enchanted sub-machine guns.

The Anime Exclusive version of Yuri Egin is detailed below. The manga version has yet to be revealed.

A lower-second class exorcist who gave birth to Rin and Yukio. She was known as the "Witch of the Forest" and was ordered to be [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake]]. This lead to the Blue Night.
----

* DeathByChildbirth: She died giving birth to her sons.
* DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu: Yes, yes she did. [[spoiler: In the anime, this is why the Blue Night happened - Satan refused to let her be murdered over this trope, and searched for a host within the nearby clergy. All of them disintegrated immediately, except for her own father.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Including demons, which caused her to be known as the "Witch of the forest" and why she could bond with SATAN of all people.
* TheLostLenore: To Satan. In the anime, [[spoiler:he wishes to create a world where humans and demons can coexist because that's what Yuri wished for]].
* MissingMom: Her sons never met her.
* MoralityPet: To Satan. She helped him understand the meaning of life and he cared about her enough to [[spoiler:cause the Blue Night in an attempt to save her from her execution]].
* PosthumousCharacter: We only learn about her through flashbacks.
* SealedEvilInACan: [[spoiler:She was able to host Satan, so they bonded, one thing led to another... and then we got Rin and Yukio.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: In a more literal sense, which is why she wound up having his kids.
* WideEyedIdealist: Enthusiastic in her belief that demons and humans could co-exist despite the eternal war going on, and heedless of criticism. [[spoiler: Even Satan loved the ideology - unfortunately, he got it a bit twisted around by the time he could act on it]].

* AnimeHair: Underneath the helmet, has a point in his hair similar to Amaimon's, though not as well-defined.

He knew that this would cause Tatsuma to show up and try to defeat the Impure King using his familiar Kurara. This weakened Tatsuma, allowing Toudou to kill him (who was saved by a revived Karura) and allow him to eat Karura to gain his power. It had all gone according to plan]].
* BreakingSpeech: Gives one [[spoiler:and more on a regular basis]] to Yukio.
** First one: after revealing himself as an exorcist fallen to a demon, he mentioned he was always in the shadow of his father and brothers, and he never could voice his doubts about his path. It rattles Yukio, but Yukio decides that he is not Saburota, but himself.
** Second one: In their next confrontation, Saburota says that [[spoiler: Yukio's father and brother are what have defined his paths in life and that he had no real choice in his path, leading him to despise his brother for having no idea what agony he went through. Yukio admits that he does love and hate his brother, but above all else he hates himself the most]].
** THIRD one: Following his discovery of [[spoiler: Yukio's [[OccultBlueEyes blue eyes]] (after almost killing the kid) and after Yukio thought Saburota was destroyed, [[FromASingleCell Saburota regenerates]] and comments that self-loathing is the first step to becoming a demon and that Yukio's true nature is that of a demon.

* EvilFeelsGood: He implies this much while talking to Yukio. [[spoiler:Said to Yukio almost verbatim as "it's nice to be a demon"]].
* ManChild: His reasons for being with the Illuminati boils down to him throwing a tantrum over how he was never accepted by his family and never could match their expectations. His age regression after [[spoiler: eating Karura]] just makes it more obvious and worse.
* ManipulativeBastard: He got Yukio to talk with him during their fights despite [[IdiotBall Yukio knowing, and earlier explained to Rin and Shiemi]] how dangerous talking with a demon can be.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He was first seen as an Upper Second Class exorcist with a timid personality who provided some [[MrExposition exposition]] about an incident involving one of the demon eyes. He seemed like an incompetent, but reasonably brave and decent, guy. And then it turns out it was all an act.

The Grandfather to Rin and Yukio on their mother's side. He's first seen during the Blue Night in episode one and absent until the final arc. Having lost his daughter, Rin and Yukio's mother to a witch hunt, he has good reasons for his prejudice against all things demon, as well as some ill will towards members of the [[ChurchMilitant True Cross Order]].[[spoiler: Though his telling of the story isn't entirely true.]]
----

* CanonForeigner: Added exclusively to the anime for the sake of the GeckoEnding.
* ChurchMilitant: The True Cross Order was always this, but after he's appointed as [[spoiler:the new Pope]] he [[UpToEleven brings it up to eleven]] by giving high school students enchanted sub-machine guns.

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He loses his calm demeanor once his Messiah bomb failed to destroy Hell, and becomes terrified when he is being dragged into it, he frantically begs Yukio to save him. Except Yukio found out that Ernst ordered the witch hunt to kill Yuri and leaves him for dead.]]

[[folder:Tatsuma Suguro]]

The Most High Priest
and Yukio, BadassPreacher, and a member of the [[ChurchMilitant True Cross Order]]. Rather eccentric. A loving father. Former Paladin. Now deceased. Ryuji's father.



* AdultFear: Your adopted child is the biological son of the most powerful demon in existence and if you let your guard down for even one minute said demon will possess you and use your body to literally drag him down to hell.
* AllLovingHero: Despite being a force to be reckoned with, he was more than willing to help anyone and anything that legitimately wanted to reform their ways, as exemplified by Kuro and Rin. In an interesting twist (anime-exclusive), [[spoiler: he only developed this attitude because of Yuri, their mother, dying for her belief that demons and humans could coexist, and was a full-blown KnightTemplar prior to this]].
* BadassGrandpa: Considering his age and the fact that he schools demons easily...
* BadassPreacher: The head father of his church, and was a former Paladin. Also the only character so far to have been a Meister in ''all five'' exorcist specialties.
* BigDamnHeroes: Shows up just in time to rescue Rin from the first demon he's ever encountered.
* CoolOldGuy: From what little we've seen of him he was definitely one of these. Rin even has him at the top of his "Cool Guys According To Me" list.
* DeathByOriginStory: In the first chapter/second episode, Satan uses DemonicPossession and takes over his body to tell Rin that he's the son of Satan. He fights him off but doesn't manage to live.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Of the sense that he was a great father to Rin and Yukio before he died.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: He dies fighting off the strongest demon of Gehenna.
* GenerationXerox: In a flashback in the manga his personality is almost exactly like Rin's, just rougher. He also shows the same kind of Doctor skill Yukio has in the present.
* GiveHimANormalLife: Sealed away Rin's demonic powers and tried to hide his true nature to give him a normal life.
* GiverOfLameNames: Paladin and badass he was, he sucks at name giving. He gives a powerful black Cait Sith he gets as a familiar the name Kuro. [[spoiler: He also gave Shura her name because she gave the impression of being an Ashura.]]
* GoodShepherd: Aside from the exorcist thing, he does the "mundane" sort of preaching in a monastery. He's Rin's father in two senses of the word.
* HeroicSacrifice: He basically killed himself to stop Satan from kidnapping Rin.
* HeroicWillpower: Satan has been trying to possess him for years pre-series. He always failed because Fujimtoto's will was too strong. Unfortunately, losing his temper with his adoptive son (enough to hit him) turned out to be enough of a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment to give an opening.
* HyperAwareness: Downplayed, but he immediately noticed that Rin saw the coal tar - revealing that his seal is definitely too weak to contain his demonic powers - which made him follow after him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Rough, crude, and a bit abrasive, especially in flashbacks before he adopted Rin and Yukio. At the same time, he helped the Myoo Dharani survive the demonic plague inflicting them (only demands payment afterwards and not before he starts caring for everyone) and he was ''injured'' at the time. He also [[spoiler: lied on his mission report about where Shura came from.]]
* MarshmallowHell: He is on the receiving end of one during a flashback in chapter 78. Shura takes her top off and shoves her bare breasts in Shiro's face after he tells her to respect herself more and to stop throwing herself at men.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Done subtly, almost as a FreezeFrameBonus, as the way he looks at his hand after hitting Rin suggests he immediately regrets and berates himself for it. [[FromBadToWorse Which allows Satan the opening he had been looking for all those years...]]
* NunTooHoly:
** Sounded like he was very interested in the ladies despite priests needing to be chaste.
** His character profile reveals one of his favourite pastimes was ''collecting porn magazines''. Wow.
** His office had very prominent posters of busty women in it.
* ThePaladin: Until his death, he was the highest ranking exorcist of the world.
* PapaWolf: For his adoptive children he would fend off SATAN himself.
* ParentalSubstitute: He was this to Rin and Yukio before dying because he raised them.
* PosthumousCharacter: Even though he was introduced BEFORE he died a lot about him was only learned though flashbacks.
* SmokingIsCool: He was often seen smoking and was a pretty cool guy.
* TookALevelInKindness: Heavily implied that taking in and raising Rin and Yukio softened him quite a bit, comparing his attitude in the first chapter to him in flashbacks.

A Bully who Adoptive father of Rin fights with and is later possessed by Yukio, BadassPreacher, and a demon.member of the [[ChurchMilitant True Cross Order]]. Rather eccentric. A loving father. Former Paladin. Now deceased.



* AdaptationExpansion: In the manga, both he and the demon that possessed him were not only defeated after Fujimoto exorcised him once, but they had NoNameGiven. In the anime, they showed up for a second round in episode 2 before [[spoiler: Satan possessed Fujimoto]].
* AdaptationalBadass: In the anime, he is explicitly stated to have been possessed by Astaroth, the Demon King of Rot.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the manga, the birds he was torturing weren't shown in too much detail, but in the anime, he was shooting them with a crossbow. His retaliation against Rin in the manga was him trying to cut his hair with a knife. In the anime, he tried to brand Rin with a rod he dipped in fire.
* JerkAss: He was introduced shooting doves with a crossbow in a public park (Anime) or pinning them down to cut off their legs (Manga).
* PutOnABus: Though he should be in the True Cross Academy he has only been seen in an anime extra since his exorcism.
* StarterVillain: The demon used him to try and find Rin to take him back to Gehenna, thus leading to Rin's awakening and starting the plot.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Both before and after his possession, he's a jerk with white hair.

to:

* AdaptationExpansion: In AdultFear: Your adopted child is the manga, both he and biological son of the most powerful demon in existence and if you let your guard down for even one minute said demon will possess you and use your body to literally drag him down to hell.
* AllLovingHero: Despite being a force to be reckoned with, he was more than willing to help anyone and anything
that possessed him were not only defeated after Fujimoto exorcised him once, but they had NoNameGiven. legitimately wanted to reform their ways, as exemplified by Kuro and Rin. In the anime, they showed up for a second round in episode 2 before an interesting twist (anime-exclusive), [[spoiler: Satan possessed Fujimoto]].
he only developed this attitude because of Yuri, their mother, dying for her belief that demons and humans could coexist, and was a full-blown KnightTemplar prior to this]].

* AdaptationDyeJob: Of eye color variety. He has blue eyes in the manga and green eyes in the anime.
* AgentPeacock: Has flamboyant tastes and can effortlessly restrain Rin and Amaimon.
* AntiAntiChrist: [[spoiler: He's a demon, one of Satan's kin, who's convinced that "peace is the disorder in which people can coexist", loves the human world, and only wants to protect it in a way any sane human can consider reasonable.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: [[spoiler:He's 3rd highest ranking of ''all'' demon in terms of strength and one of the Eight Demon Kings. He's right below Lucifer in terms of strength in the Gehenna Hierarchy]]. He is also an Honorary Knight which, in exorcist rankings, is two ranks below Paladin. It's possible he'd be higher too, were it not for his heritage.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He's pretty friendly and personable most of the time. Even if he comes off as creepy, he rarely ever says a harsh word to anyone and is always very polite. Furthermore, he's an Otaku who loves to dress in hilariously flamboyant fashions while also going on LargeHam speeches about various things and making a spectacle of himself. His room is filled with plushies and fandom merchandise. [[spoiler:He's the third most powerful demon in the Gehenna hierarchy - after Satan and Lucifer. And he is also Samael, master of time and space, able to restrain Amaimon and Rin at the same time if he has to, without breaking a sweat]]. His rage has only come close to being triggered ''once'' and it was by [[spoiler:Shura, who tried to interrogate him. She immediately knew to back off]].
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:His body is breaking down, similar to Lucifer's only at a slower rate.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Very Camp and a large ham but a high ranking exorcist, dean of a prestigious school the size of a city, and [[spoiler: one of the strongest demon kings of Gehenna.]]
* CampStraight: Definitely camp (especially in the anime) and most likely straight as he's commented in the manga that he shares Rin's preference for women of the "devilish" type. He also has some ShipTease with Shura in the manga.
* TheChessmaster: It's a blend of all three tropes. Depending on who he's really working for (other than himself), Mephisto is shaping up to be one or more of these. [[BewareTheSillyOnes Pity the guys on the other side]]. [[spoiler:He openly admits that he sees them as chess pieces and was behind most of their trials.]]
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: As it turned out he's [[spoiler: Samael the [[TimeMaster King of Time]] and [[SpaceMaster Space]], third most powerful among the demons in hell]].
* DevilInPlainSight: While he certainly ''is'' a [[spoiler:son of Satan]], he was also close friends with [[BadassPreacher Fujimoto]] and is one of the good guys right now. Technically, at least. See ForTheLulz below. Turns out [[EverybodyKnewAlready all the exorcists know who he really is]], except [[IdiotHero Rin]].
* EccentricMentor: If Mephisto really ''is'' on the side of the Exorcists, then he is this. Older than most of other characters? Check. Knows more than he lets on most of the time? Check. Usually acts like comic relief? Check. Eccentric? Double check. Cares not for what others may think? Considering [[VillainousFashionSense his fashion sense]], check. Acts like a mentor/protector/guide? Check, to his students and school. More powerful than he shows? Considering he was able to [[spoiler:drag a [[BerserkMode berserker]] Rin around [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask while calmly sheathing his sword and pleasantly talking to someone]]]], that would be a ''check''[[note]]He hasn't been in a legitimate fight yet, though, so it's yet to be confirmed[[/note]]. Seems to prefer letting his students solve problems by themselves? Mostly check, with him [[GuileHero making a few nudges here and there]]. He seems to fit this trope very well but then, if he's not on the side he claims to be on, he may be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]].
* {{Familiar}}: Has two different ones so far. One is Ukobach, a demon who, as shown in the anime, cooks food for Rin and Yukio. The other is disguised as [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mephito_4223.jpg his umbrella]] most of the time.
* ForTheLulz: His reason for being the leader of the side that wants to take down [[spoiler:his dad]] is because he's bored and because humans are entertaining.
* GratuitousGerman: While it is the correct usage, he gratuitously uses "eins, zwei, drei" occasionally, which simply means "one, two, three". He has also used two spells called "Kuchen Cuckoo House" (''kuchen'' being the German word for "cake", used in other languages to describe various other sweets) and "Das Stärkste Gefängnis", meaning "the Strongest Prison". This is possibly justified in that his namesake originates from German folklore.
* HellishPupils: To make him seem untrustworthy and show that he's a demon.
* IdiotHair: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mephito_4223.jpg As seen here]]. It's hidden under the hat.
* IHaveManyNames: He's also known as Loki, Watari Garasu, Raven, and Trickster.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Despite being used for (at least) two hundred years, his human host still looks to be in his thirties.
* TheInsomniac: The tankobon claims he has one hour of sleep a night.
* IntriguedByHumanity: Specifically the Japanese. He's a bonafide {{otaku}}.
* ItAmusedMe: Pretty much his modus operandi for doing anything, including [[spoiler: living in the human world to start with]].
* LargeHam: Loud clothes, loud voice, and has an entire amusement park named after him.
* LethalChef: He used his cooking to threaten/encourage Rin and Yukio to make up with Ukobach.
%%* ManInWhite:
* MeaningfulName: Named after the demon in the archetypal DealWithTheDevil German tale of {{Faust}}.
* MoodSwinger: Goes from silly and casual to deadly serious and back again.
* MorphicResonance: No matter what he turns into he keeps his primarily white color scheme and has a pink polka dotted scarf around his neck. [[UpToEleven His bug form even has a mini version of his human form's top hat]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[spoiler: The original Samael is variably speculated to be an Angel, a Demon, TheGrimReaper, {{Satan}}, or The Demiurge; his only constant trait is his capacity for both [[AntiHero good]] and [[AntiVillain evil]]. That's right, even the other character he's based on is [[AmbiguouslyEvil a huge enigma]]]].
* NiceHat: A distinctive top hat he keeps when he turns into a bug.
* {{Otaku}}: According to the character profiles in the tankobon, he enjoys movies, manga, anime, video games, music, toys, and subcultures. He admits it in chapter 39, and seems to be outright [[ProudToBeAGeek proud of it]].
* PublicDomainCharacter: In the anime continuity, at least, where it's made explicit that he is the very same Mephistopheles who contracted with Faust in the original folktale. In the manga, this remains to be seen.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Has been working with the exorcists for 200 years and is older than Amaimon who is over 1000 years old.
* RealityWarper: Amongst others, he was shown to be able to transform into a dog, pull a clock out of his hat (in which he was able to hide/entrap Amaimon), transport Rin's and his own conscious to Gehenna, and he also made the Exorcist shop inaccessable by physical means.[[spoiler: As it turned out, he's the King of [[TimeMaster Time]] and [[SpaceMaster Space]]]].
* SharpDressedMan: When he isn't wearing his silliest outfit (the one with the tights and the puffy pants,) he's this and has worn both a simple white suit and a striped, but still snazzy, one. It seems to depend on his mood and the occasion.
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: AllThereInTheManual, and somewhat implied in-universe, that he's good at chess. he's [[GuileHero very]] [[TheChessmaster smart]] [[ManipulativeBastard indeed]].
* SpaceMaster: [[spoiler: As the Demon King of Time and ''Space'', he has this ability. It only came up a few times so far, like when he trapped Ammaimon in his hat, or when he transported Rin's and his own soul to Gehenna.]]
* StealthPun: His animal forms seem based on these: He turns into a dog in order to seem more like "Man's best friend" and he turns into a literal version of an IncrediblyObviousBug to try and spy on his students ForTheLulz.
* TaremeEyes: Like his brother, Amaimon, it's an unusual case of an ambiguously-aligned, adult man having them.
%%* TightsUnderShorts: His [[LimitedWardrobe most regular]] outfit has this.
* TimeMaster: He is [[spoiler: the demon lord of time]], thus giving him this ability and more.
* TimeStandsStill: One of his powers he can use. [[spoiler: It is seen used to stop the slowly expanding artificially created Gehenna Gate. Unfortunately this will last four to five months at best]].
* TricksterMentor: He teaches Rin, even though his methods are somewhat harsh, he can be straight forward when he feels like it.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can turn into things like [[FunSize a dog]] and a bug to help him go around more freely and to spy on people respectively.

* CampStraight: Definitely camp (especially in the anime) and most likely straight as he's commented in the manga that he shares Rin's preference for women of the "devilish" type. He also has some ShipTease with Shura in the manga.
* TheChessmaster: It's a blend of all three tropes. Depending on who he's really working for (other than himself), Mephisto is shaping up to be one or more of these. [[BewareTheSillyOnes Pity the guys on the other side]]. [[spoiler:He openly admits that he sees them as chess pieces and was behind most of their trials.]]
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: As it turned out he's [[spoiler: Samael the [[TimeMaster King of Time]] and [[SpaceMaster Space]], third most powerful among the demons in hell]].
* DevilInPlainSight: While he certainly ''is'' a [[spoiler:son of Satan]], he was also close friends with [[BadassPreacher Fujimoto]] and is one of the good guys right now. Technically, at least. See ForTheLulz below. Turns out [[EverybodyKnewAlready all the exorcists know who he really is]], except [[IdiotHero Rin]].
* EccentricMentor: If Mephisto really ''is'' on the side of the Exorcists, then he is this. Older than most of other characters? Check. Knows more than he lets on most of the time? Check. Usually acts like comic relief? Check. Eccentric? Double check. Cares not for what others may think? Considering [[VillainousFashionSense his fashion sense]], check. Acts like a mentor/protector/guide? Check, to his students and school. More powerful than he shows? Considering he was able to [[spoiler:drag a [[BerserkMode berserker]] Rin around [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask while calmly sheathing his sword and pleasantly talking to someone]]]], that would be a ''check''[[note]]He hasn't been in a legitimate fight yet, though, so it's yet to be confirmed[[/note]]. Seems to prefer letting his students solve problems by themselves? Mostly check, with him [[GuileHero making a few nudges here and there]]. He seems to fit this trope very well but then, if he's not on the side he claims to be on, he may be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]].
* {{Familiar}}: Has two different ones so far. One is Ukobach, a demon who, as shown in the anime, cooks food for Rin and Yukio. The other is disguised as [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mephito_4223.jpg his umbrella]] most of the time.
* ForTheLulz: His reason for being the leader of the side that wants to take down [[spoiler:his dad]] is because he's bored and because humans are entertaining.
* GratuitousGerman: While it is the correct usage, he gratuitously uses "eins, zwei, drei" occasionally, which simply means "one, two, three". He has also used two spells called "Kuchen Cuckoo House" (''kuchen'' being the German word for "cake", used in other languages to describe various other sweets) and "Das Stärkste Gefängnis", meaning "the Strongest Prison". This is possibly justified in that his namesake originates from German folklore.
* HellishPupils: To make him seem untrustworthy and show that he's a demon.
* IdiotHair: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mephito_4223.jpg As seen here]]. It's hidden under the hat.
* IHaveManyNames: He's also known as Loki, Watari Garasu, Raven, and Trickster.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Despite being used for (at least) two hundred years, his human host still looks to be in his thirties.
* TheInsomniac: The tankobon claims he has one hour of sleep a night.
* IntriguedByHumanity: Specifically the Japanese. He's a bonafide {{otaku}}.
* ItAmusedMe: Pretty much his modus operandi for doing anything, including [[spoiler: living in the human world to start with]].
* LargeHam: Loud clothes, loud voice, and has an entire amusement park named after him.
* LethalChef: He used his cooking to threaten/encourage Rin and Yukio to make up with Ukobach.
%%* ManInWhite:
* MeaningfulName: Named after the demon in the archetypal DealWithTheDevil German tale of {{Faust}}.
* MoodSwinger: Goes from silly and casual to deadly serious and back again.
* MorphicResonance: No matter what he turns into he keeps his primarily white color scheme and has a pink polka dotted scarf around his neck. [[UpToEleven His bug form even has a mini version of his human form's top hat]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[spoiler: The original Samael is variably speculated to be an Angel, a Demon, TheGrimReaper, {{Satan}}, or The Demiurge; his only constant trait is his capacity for both [[AntiHero good]] and [[AntiVillain evil]]. That's right, even the other character he's based on is [[AmbiguouslyEvil a huge enigma]]]].
* NiceHat: A distinctive top hat he keeps when he turns into a bug.
* {{Otaku}}: According to the character profiles in the tankobon, he enjoys movies, manga, anime, video games, music, toys, and subcultures. He admits it in chapter 39, and seems to be outright [[ProudToBeAGeek proud of it]].
* PublicDomainCharacter: In the anime continuity, at least, where it's made explicit that he is the very same Mephistopheles who contracted with Faust in the original folktale.
AdaptationExpansion: In the manga, this remains to be seen.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Has been working with
both he and the exorcists demon that possessed him were not only defeated after Fujimoto exorcised him once, but they had NoNameGiven. In the anime, they showed up for 200 years and is older than Amaimon who is over 1000 years old.
* RealityWarper: Amongst others, he was shown to be able to transform into
a dog, pull a clock out of his hat (in which he was able to hide/entrap Amaimon), transport Rin's and his own conscious to Gehenna, and he also made the Exorcist shop inaccessable by physical means.second round in episode 2 before [[spoiler: As it turned out, he's Satan possessed Fujimoto]].
* AdaptationalBadass: In
the King of [[TimeMaster Time]] and [[SpaceMaster Space]]]].
* SharpDressedMan: When
anime, he isn't wearing his silliest outfit (the one with the tights and the puffy pants,) he's this and has worn both a simple white suit and a striped, but still snazzy, one. It seems is explicitly stated to depend on his mood and the occasion.
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: AllThereInTheManual, and somewhat implied in-universe, that he's good at chess. he's [[GuileHero very]] [[TheChessmaster smart]] [[ManipulativeBastard indeed]].
* SpaceMaster: [[spoiler: As
have been possessed by Astaroth, the Demon King of Time and ''Space'', Rot.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the manga, the birds he was torturing weren't shown in too much detail, but in the anime, he was shooting them with a crossbow. His retaliation against Rin in the manga was him trying to cut his hair with a knife. In the anime, he tried to brand Rin with a rod he dipped in fire.
* JerkAss: He was introduced shooting doves with a crossbow in a public park (Anime) or pinning them down to cut off their legs (Manga).
* PutOnABus: Though he should be in the True Cross Academy
he has this ability. It only came up a few times so far, like when he trapped Ammaimon been seen in an anime extra since his hat, or when he transported exorcism.
* StarterVillain: The demon used him to try and find Rin to take him back to Gehenna, thus leading to
Rin's awakening and starting the plot.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Both before and after
his own soul to Gehenna.]]
* StealthPun: His animal forms seem based on these: He turns into
possession, he's a dog in order to seem more like "Man's best friend" and he turns into a literal version of an IncrediblyObviousBug to try and spy on his students ForTheLulz.
* TaremeEyes: Like his brother, Amaimon, it's an unusual case of an ambiguously-aligned, adult man having them.
%%* TightsUnderShorts: His [[LimitedWardrobe most regular]] outfit has this.
* TimeMaster: He is [[spoiler: the demon lord of time]], thus giving him this ability and more.
* TimeStandsStill: One of his powers he can use. [[spoiler: It is seen used to stop the slowly expanding artificially created Gehenna Gate. Unfortunately this will last four to five months at best]].
* TricksterMentor: He teaches Rin, even though his methods are somewhat harsh, he can be straight forward when he feels like it.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can turn into things like [[FunSize a dog]] and a bug to help him go around more freely and to spy on people respectively.

* BigSisterInstinct: When she gave her report to Mephisto after the incident in Aomori she loses her cool when she yells about what happened to Yukio and Rin and demands to know if it was all part of Mephisto's plan.

* BroughtDownToBadass: [[spoiler:After being freed of Hachiro, she has lost the power she gained from the contract and her Demon Sword became just a normal blade... but she is still quite capable of throwing said blade right through somebody's head if need be.]]
** That said, [[spoiler:she willingly took a rank demotion since she is currently powerless.]]
* ChristmasCake: She introduces herself to her class as eighteen and constantly interrupts Yukio whenever he tries to tell everyone that she's really twenty-seven years old.

* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Red-violet eyes to go with her fiery red hair.

[[spoiler: Turns out she's doomed to die at thirty, when little killed a lot of people in ignorance, and before she met Shiro she didn't have a ''name'' of her own other than her surname. Oh and she's supposed to give birth to a child before she dies as per the contract with the immortal demon Hachiro her ancestor made.]]

* IgnoreTheFanservice: In the ToplessnessFromTheBack shot neither Yukio or Rin are concerned about her state of dress.

* RazorWind: Her Serpent Fang attack launches multiple wind blades from her sword.
* ReallyGetsAround: Implied to be this way when she was in her teens/early 20s. During a flashback in chapter 78, Shiro says he heard that she's been throwing herself at a lot of men and that she needs to respect herself more.

* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Not quite, she keeps her sword in a magical tattoo located just above her bosom, but it still calls this trope to mind. [[StomachOfHolding She can do the same thing with the one on her stomach]]. [[spoiler: Said tattoos are the engraved mark of the contract her ancestor made, making it extremely difficult to cancel or even alter the contract.]]
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Her standard outfit almost resembles this at times, with the very small "bra" she has on top. Not much difference from the top from the actual bikini she wears once.

* AnimeHair: He has a horn/spike hairstyle similar to [[ShamanKing Tao Ren's]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's only 7th or 8th highest ranking of ''all'' demons in terms of strength, making him one of the ''weakest'' of the demon kings, but he is ''still'' a demon king.
* BerserkButton: A good way to get him serious or into a fight is to laugh at him. So don't laugh at him. ''Ever.''
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He may be odd but he can break a man's arm by poking it and kill any exorcist who tries to stop him.
* BigBrotherBully: In a matter of speaking, towards Rin. They're half-brothers after all, and he beat the kid senseless.
* BigEater: He is often seen eating junk food and candy whenever he appears in but is one of the skinniest members of the cast.
* BigOlEyebrows: Absurdly shaped and large.
* PutOnABus: Disappears after his big fight with Rin in ch13. [[spoiler: He reappears later briefly in both ch39 and ch44, before finally returning at the end of ch82.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He will start talking about surfing while standing on a speeding roller coaster in the middle of a fight or use his fingers as pretend binoculars while spying on his little brother.

* CurbstompBattle: [[spoiler:In chapter 39, he knocks Rin out in a single hit going into his true form, making it clear that Rin is not stronger than him]]. In the anime, [[spoiler:the positions are reversed, as Rin is capable of [[OneHitKill incinerating him in a single blow]]]].
* DemonicPossession: Technically, for a demon to stay in Assiah aside from being born, they have to do this. An Omake stated he's possessing some poor guy.
* DishingOutDirt: As the [[RedBaron King of Earth]].
* DissonantSerenity: The whole time he's fighting Rin and the others, he seems...calm. Amused. He also lets out a cheerful "yaaaay" when Rin unsheathes Kurikara.

* {{Familiar}}: His is a large hobgoblin called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Behemoth]].

* FunSize: In the anime he can turn into a hamster.
* HellishPupils: Like most demons his pupils are slitted.
* IShallTauntYou: Or in this case "I will pretend to play a Japanese version of tag to get you to fight me" or "I will target your LoveInterest and pretend to marry her (or chew her lips off) to make you take fighting me more seriously".
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: While his human host appears to be a teenager, the 10th volume of the manga mentions Amaimon has been using him for almost a thousand years.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: By [[spoiler: Berserk!Rin]] in the anime and [[spoiler: Mephisto]] in the manga. Since he is [[{{Immortality}} a demon]] neither case actually kills him, only succeeding in [[spoiler: destroying his host body]] and [[spoiler: turning him into a [[HumanPincushion Demon Pincushion]] respectively.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Like his brother, he's primarily interested in simply doing something that doesn't bore him.
* KnightOfCerebus: As soon as he shows up, things start to get dangerous for Rin. More so on his second appearance, where he seriously threatens and even harms the main cast and forces Rin to use his [[HellFire Blue Flames]] to save them all...resulting in the execution order over his head.

* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "'Don't screw around' ''is my line''."
* PsychopathicManchild: He treats fighting like its a game to him, wants to kill anyone that he finds annoying, and doesn't care many people up hurt or killed because of his actions long as he doesn't upset his big brother.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He is at ''least'' a thousand years old.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: His true demon form revealed with his "Demon Heart" has very lizard-like qualities like his tail design, scaled arms, and green coloration.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: [[http://www.mangareader.net/406-54591-16/ao-no-exorcist/chapter-13.html Byoooooo~n]].
* SealedEvilInACan: Mephisto essentially has a tight leash on Amaimon at all times and basically gets called out to "train" Rin or some other errand.
* SuperPowerMeltdown: Why he, and most demons, hide their Demon Heart. [[spoiler: Even throwing one [[KamehameHadoken super punch]] was enough to [[PowerStrainBlackout knock himself out]] because of the [[PsychicNosebleed strain]] it put on his host.]]
* SuperStrength: [[FingerPokeOfDoom A poke]] from him ''breaks bone''. He also launches Rin through a ''roller coaster'' by just flicking him.
* SweetTooth: He is often seen eating candy, possibly due to how his [[PunnyName name]] sounds like "Amai Mono" which means "sweet things" in japanese.
* TaremeEyes: An inversion where a [[GenderInvertedTrope male villain]] has 'em.
* TranquilFury: Since his face isn't that expressive he winds up looking really calm even if he's in the middle of punching someone's FACE off.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Similar to how Mephisto has purple hair and Rin has blue hair it is most likely to help show he is a demon.

to:

* AnimeHair: AffablyEvil: He is always very polite, even when he [[spoiler:betrays both the exorcists and Mamushi]]. In fact, he arguably became even more polite ''after'' he revealed himself to be evil.
* BatmanGambit: Pulls one off by [[spoiler:obtaining both demon eyes through a bit of [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] and [[TricksterArchetype trickery]], then using them to deliberately awaken the [[SealedEvilinaCan Impure King]]. He knew that this would cause Tatsuma to show up and try to defeat the Impure King using his familiar Kurara. This weakened Tatsuma, allowing Toudou to kill him (who was saved by a revived Karura) and allow him to eat Karura to gain his power. It had all gone according to plan]].
* BreakingSpeech: Gives one [[spoiler:and more on a regular basis]] to Yukio.
** First one: after revealing himself as an exorcist fallen to a demon, he mentioned he was always in the shadow of his father and brothers, and he never could voice his doubts about his path. It rattles Yukio, but Yukio decides that he is not Saburota, but himself.
** Second one: In their next confrontation, Saburota says that [[spoiler: Yukio's father and brother are what have defined his paths in life and that he had no real choice in his path, leading him to despise his brother for having no idea what agony he went through. Yukio admits that he does love and hate his brother, but above all else he hates himself the most]].
** THIRD one: Following his discovery of [[spoiler: Yukio's [[OccultBlueEyes blue eyes]] (after almost killing the kid) and after Yukio thought Saburota was destroyed, [[FromASingleCell Saburota regenerates]] and comments that self-loathing is the first step to becoming a demon and that Yukio's true nature is that of a demon.

of strength, making him one [[spoiler: combining FromASingleCell, FountainOfYouth, and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld how demons tend to have extremely long lifespans]]]].
* TheCorrupter: He convinced a loyal member
of the ''weakest'' Kyoto Branch Office to give him the dangerous Right Eye of the Impure King. He is actively attempting to manipulate Yukio for unknown but definitely unsavory ends.
* DrivenByEnvy: Claims that his major reason for becoming Illuminati is because of this towards his elder brothers and father.
* EvilFeelsGood: He implies this much while talking to Yukio. [[spoiler:Said to Yukio almost verbatim as "it's nice to be a demon"]].
* ManChild: His reasons for being with the Illuminati boils down to him throwing a tantrum over how he was never accepted by his family and never could match their expectations. His age regression after [[spoiler: eating Karura]] just makes it more obvious and worse.
* ManipulativeBastard: He got Yukio to talk with him during their fights despite [[IdiotBall Yukio knowing, and earlier explained to Rin and Shiemi]] how dangerous talking with a demon can be.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He was first seen as an Upper Second Class exorcist with a timid personality who provided some [[MrExposition exposition]] about an incident involving one
of the demon kings, eyes. He seemed like an incompetent, but reasonably brave and decent, guy. And then it turns out it was all an act. He had in fact already turned traitor and only exposed himelf as TheMole in the chapter in which he was introduced. He has since shown considerable [[NotSoHarmlessVillain competence]] and [[BatmanGambit cunning]]. He is now [[ManipulativeBastard one to watch out for]].
* StalkerWithoutACrush: In his own words, [[spoiler:[[VillainTakesAnInterest
he is ''still'' "very interested" in Yukio]]]].
* StartOfDarkness: He described his. He wanted to be like his father and brother, but was discontent with living a life he felt was shaped by others. Ultimately he became
a demon king.
* BerserkButton: A good way to get him serious or into a fight is to laugh at him. So don't laugh at him. ''Ever.''
