* PaperThinDisguise: He may be able to change his shape, but humorously, doesn't do much (or often anything) to change his voice. At one point he complains that God saddled him with inflexible vocal cords, so it's likely he actually ''can't''.

* TheDevilIsALoser: He's a rather whiny, borderline-suicidal fellow who uses torture and corruption mainly as a mechanism to cope with his own self-hatred.



* AffablyEvil: Is generally respectful of those he speaks to, wishes his angels were more willing to lighten up and joke around and frequently sends people to Hell for little-to-no reason.



* MagnificentBastard: Satan even refuses to take him as a minion because it wouldn't do to have a subordinate capable of outsmarting him.

* AffablyEvil[=/=]FauxAffablyEvil: Zigzags the two. To most people, he's FauxAffablyEvil, often utilizing ExactWords to make people think he's about to give them what they want before making their torments even more painful. To other supernatural beings and the handful of humans he respects, he's AffablyEvil; he'll still torture them if they become annoying, but when he's not doing so, he's fairly friendly and can sometimes even act as a caring presence.



* BadBoss: He's not much nicer to his demons than to his captives. He once made Scumspawn eat himself.
* BadLiar: Ironically, he's terrible at coming up with believable lies.
* BeingEvilSucks: He's borderline suicidal as a result of running Hell.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He gets a one-shot love interest named Hope in one Christmas special. He also cares more about Scumspawn and the Professor than he lets on.

* VillainsNeverLie: Whenever he makes a claim about science or history that contradicts our current knowledge, it will turn out to be accurate.
* VillainProtagonist



* AnythingThatMoves: Has sexual feelings for cartoon characters and mannequins. [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday As long as they're female, of course.]]



* BadBoss: When he was alive, he drove one of his employees suicidal. When he finds this out, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he seems to be genuinely remorseful]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk only to then say that it's her fault anyway for not complaining enough earlier]].
* BeingEvilSucks: Sort of; it worked out great for him when he was alive, but then he died and went to Hell because of his evil acts.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He values his friendship with Scumspawn deeply.



* [[spoiler:SemiDivine]]: His [[EvilRedhead red hair]] [[spoiler:marks him as having angel ancestry, though he has no powers.]]
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist



* AnythingThatMoves: Has sexual feelings for cartoon characters and mannequins. [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday As long as they're female, of course.]]
