Damien. And in the fourth film, [[spoiler:Alexander]].



* BitchInSheepsClothing: Damien's many secret protectors are often seemingly nice individuals. Damien is a debatable example as he never does anything overtly evil in the first film directly and it's left ambiguous of how aware he is of ''what'' he is.

* ChildrenAreInnocent: [[SubvertedTrope ... not.]]
* CreepyChild: Well, he's quite adorable for the son of Satan but he still does things that creep out other characters and of course the audience. Interestingly this trait is ramped up considerably in the 2006 version.

* SecretCircleOfSecrets: Nearly other person around Damien seems to be a member of a [[ReligionOfEvil Satan-worshiping cult]] who are loyal to the death and do the dirty work of murdering those could threaten Damien when the accidents don't.

After the first three films were novelized, two non-canon book sequels were written by Gordon [=McGill=] (''Omen IV: Armageddon 2000'' and ''Omen V: The Abomination'') chronicling the exploits of Damien's son and his attempts to cause the end of the world through interfering with the international peace process. There were a number of copycat films such as the Italian-made Kirk Douglas movie ''Film/{{Holocaust 2000}}''.

** Well outside of throwing a temper tantrum when he comes near a church, and knocking his mother off the stairs (which may or may not have been a accident) it's debatable on this in the first film.

* GreaterScopeVillain: Satan himself. He is never shown, but his influence grooms Damien to become the ultimate evil as well as dissuade anybody that knows too much.



* NothingIsScarier: The build up to the deaths in thoughout the original trilogy were pretty intense, the deaths themselves were terrible ways to go for the most part but almost a relief when they come. The remake has elements of this too. It could be argued that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwgSX7a9yDs this teaser]] for the remake is infinitely more terrifying than the movie itself.

* OmnicidalManiac: Unlike his father who intended to rule the Earth, Damian Jr just wants to see it burn.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Damian Thorn Jr looks just like a younger version of his father. Not surprising, as Junior is heavily implied to be Damian's reincarnation. He's kept in hiding for this reason.
