* AscendedDemon: Some of the demons have aspirations of redemption, specifically Marchosias, Amy, Focalor, and Phenex. Unfortunately, it seems they are "deceived in that hope"...

** It's also worth noting that although we're...well...talking ''DEMONS'' here, the conjuror is actually instructed to call upon God and appeal to his authority (which is still binding on the demons, whether they like it or not) in order to get the particular demon to obey the call and evocation. In other words, the idea is that you're using unholy implements (demons) for (allegedly) acceptable-to-God means (although how anyone would call what some of these characters, like Sitri, Andras, and Beleth, do "holy" is kind of difficult).

* FakeMemories: Besides Ose's gimmick, as described in BalefulPolymorph above, Dantalion can reveal a person's thoughts to a conjuror, then ''change those memories''. It does ''not'' help that he's one of the bevy of Goetics skilled in [[HypnotizeThePrincess impelling love]]...
* {{Familiar}}: Many, ''many'' Goetics have the explicit ability to grant familiars to conjurors. This is also Valefor's sole recorded ability...perhaps because rather than ''giving'' you a familiar, he ''is'' the familiar.

* HypnotizeThePrincess: A ''lot'' of the Goetic crew have the ability to incite love between men and women. One has to wonder if anybody trusted the conjurors to not try to use this trick to get themselves a desired bedmate with no strings attached...Sitri is ''especially'' explicit about this.

Beleth's entry, meanwhile, is very explicit about the not-so-romantic side of this; "This Great King Beleth causeth all the love that may be, [[AnythingThatMoves both of Men and of Women, until the Master Exorcist hath had his desire fulfilled.]]" Although [[DrivenToMadness it's a different story]] if one pays attention to the original Latin of the ''Pseudomonarchia Daemonum''.

The Dictionnaire Infernal supplies an even odder possible form: lion with goose's head and feet and hare's tail.

* SealedEvilInACan: Part of the binding procedure that Solomon used was trapping the demons inside an elaborate vessel of brass, which he could pull them out of at will to perform this or that deed. Once he'd gotten all the work he needed out of them, he cast the full vessel into a great lake in the Babylonian Empire, expecting them to stay stuck until the end of time. Too bad the Babylonians who later found it mistook it for an ordinary treasure cache and ''opened'' it, getting nothing for their troubles except Belial impersonating one of their gods...

!![[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetic_demons_in_popular_culture Examples]]:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' uses the Goetic designs for all its demons and explains why they look that way. The Goetia also provides the names of two demons, Caim and Amon (the later of which is the demon Akira fuses with to become Devilman).
* Vassago appeared as "Virsago" in ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'', where it is the name of an appropriately demonic-looking Gundam piloted by one of the main villains. Its partner Gundam (piloted by his brother) is named "Ashtaron", after Astaroth, while the prototype that spawned the two was named "Belphagor".
* Shanu Andras, Orga Sabnak and Clotho Buer of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' are all likely references to Andras, Sabnock and Buer.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' started the trend with a mobile suit known as the Abigor.
* And now it continues with ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', with the eponymous mechs being named after the 72 Demons. So far only three of them have been confirmed: Barbatos, Guison, and Kimaris.
* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' the main protagonist's master is a part of the Gremory household and is also a woman. Later on, the head master of Phenex and Baal also show up.
** All 72 demons get name-dropped as the 72 pillars, the royal families of pureblood devils that rule the underworld. Although many of them were wiped out in the Great War, at least half are still around in one form or another.
* Several characters in ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' are named after Goetic demons -- Marchosias, Dantalion, Valac, etc., while the third season adds many more: Decarabia, Stolas, Purson, Uvall, Haborym, Orobas, and others.
* ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' borrows the symbols in the Ars Goetia [[http://kanzaka.wikia.com/wiki/Ars_Goetia to symbolize the higher level Mazoku]].
** Duke Eligos (15) is Dynast Grausherra, Prince/Prelate & Count/Earl Ipos (22) is Greater Beastmaster Zellas Metallium, Duke Bune (26) is Chaos Dragon Garv, Duke Astaroth (29) is Hellmaster Filbrizo, and Duke Vepar (42) is Deep Sea Dolphin.
* Amon of ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin''. Not actually a demon, though.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a couple. "Versago the Destroyer" is a mangling of "Vassago"; more recent is "Gaap the Divine Soldier". Gaap made an appearance in the BigBad's deck in ''Manga/YuGiOhR'', which included Leraje, Caassimolar, and Botis as CannonFodder.
* Adelicia from ''LightNovel/RentalMagica'' specializes in conjuring demons of Solomon. She even is the head of an organization called Ars Goetia.
* Barring Ugo, all of the Djinn are named after the demons in ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic''.
* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'', the right hand servant of Deus Ex Machina is named Murmur. [[spoiler: She doesn't actually serve Deus, and even takes his crown towards the end of the series.]]
* The six fists of the Hellas Kataphrakt in ''Anime/AldnoahZero'' are named Botis, Marax, Ronové, Halphas, Räum, & Viné.
* ''Manga/PurgatoryOfCartagra'' features a battle among seventy-two humans, each contracted to a different Goetic demon (with the protagonist contracted to Belial), for the right to bear the ring of Solomon and become omnipotent.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Andras and Marchosias -- two of the demons most associated with battle and manslaughter -- start off the action in ''ComicBook/{{Promethea}}'' by being set up as hitmen by a conjuror who doesn't want the latest version of the title character to go on living. [[spoiler: Later on, he somehow gets the entire retinue to possess someone. How he got some of the ones who definitely don't have possession/mind control/temptation in their repertoire, like Orobas and Haures, to do it is unknown.]]
* Pre-Flashpoint, the demon Nebiros was responsible for the existence of two heroes. ComicBook/BlueDevil fought him while he was wearing a suit of devil-themed PoweredArmor and got magically fused with it thanks to Nebiros' flames. Sebastian Faust lost his soul to Nebiros when his own father Felix sold it for arcane power. Nebiros messed with Felix by giving Sebastian the power instead.
* Several demons from the Ars Goetia appear in ''Comicbook/{{Hellboy}}'', with Astaroth in particular being a recurring antagonist.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''TheBartimaeusTrilogy'' namedropped a few - all of them famous djinn in Solomon's ranks.
* In [[Literature/KushielsLegacy Naamah's Kiss]], the main character gets involved with a group of academics attempting to summon members of the Goetia, though they aren't explicitly called that, and ask them for various magical powers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' had Shax and Andras as villains.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Game]]
* In "ArsMagica 5th Edition", the Goetic Arts (Summoning, Ablating, Binding, and Commanding) are infernal powers that allow their possessor to conjure and coerce demons and other spirits. Actually, Summoning can be associated with any realm (Magic, Faerie, even Divine!), the other three powers, however, are always Infernally aligned (although not everyone who has these powers necessarily knows that...)
* Early editions of ''TabletopGame/{{Dragonquest}}'' had lists of these demons and their game stats.
* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3.5'' SourceBook ''Tome of Magic'' has the "Binder" class that gains powers by binding vestiges with seals. In addition to being the base of the concept of the class, most of the vestiges (Ammon, Leraje, Naberius, Ronove, Malphas, Sabnock, Andromalius, Focalor, Paimon, Agares, Andras, Buer, Astaroth, Balam, Dantalion, Haures, Ipos, Shax, Zagan, Haagenti, Halphax, Eligor, Otiax, and Marchosias are used), along with their seals, are taken directly from Ars Goetia (another good portion are [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]] like [[TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors Acererak]]). The descriptions of the vestiges' manifestations don't always match perfectly with their descriptions in the Lesser Key of Solomon, though. For example, Zagan is described in the Lesser Key as an eagle-winged bull (well, gryphon-winged, but [[FridgeLogic how]] ''[[FridgeLogic does]]'' [[FridgeLogic one tell the difference?]]), just like Haagenti, here an eagle-winged minotaur. In the Tome, he's a great yuan-ti priest who tried (and utterly failed) to achieve godhood, and manifests as a gigantic yuan-ti (i.e. a snake-man). Oddly in this instance, there is an unused Goetic demon, Botis, who manifests as a hideous viper...
** ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 4e has the Vestige Pact Warlock, who can bind Shax and Leraje as a ContinuityNod.
** In earlier editions of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', many of the devils of the Nine Hells had these names: Agares, Barbatos, Buer, Glasya and so on. It looks like this is continuing in 4e, if Alloces is anything to go by.
* The Steve Jackson Games version of ''TabletopGame/InNomine'' used some of these names in their products. For example, Furfur is the Demon Prince of Hardcore in both the English and the original French version too.
* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' features goetic demons, embodiments of a character's own Vice that can be given form in order to divest them of unsavory impulses... but that means there's a primal incarnation of Vice walking about. One [[PrestigeClass Legacy]], the Clavicularius, draws heavily upon the Ars Goetia and works to draw power from their Goetic demons while keeping them tightly bound. Another Legacy, the Bene Ashmedai, [[MrViceGuy let their base instincts have a measure of free rein]] and gain power through [[SevenDeadlySins excess]]. The latter legacy is a splinter faction of the former, and they tend not to get on well.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has at least two daemons named after Ars Goetia: Mamon, a daemon prince of Nurgle, and the Nurgle daemon lord Scaibeithrax (aka Papa Ga'ap).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the original Japanese version of ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'', Caulder is called Stolos--a variation of Stolas, an ''owl''-demon (all right, or possibly a raven-demon, but other than Andras, the other birds aren't usually alternately owls).
* ''Videogame/{{Aquanox}}'''s ultimate enemies, the Old Ones, were variously named for Goetics, the two strongest being Crocell and Forneus (the latter being the first game's final boss).
* The portable chapters of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' such as ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait of Ruin]]'' name many enemies after the Goetic demons, such as Vapula (a winged lion), Glasya-Labolas (a winged bulldog), Stolas (an owl monster), Buer (a fiery rotating wheel-thingy) and so on.
** Malphas gets the best publicity, serving as a boss or DegradedBoss as early as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' (though originally translated as Karasuman) and serving as [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Soma's]] recurring DoubleJump soul.
** The only other Goetian (aside from noted Greek Cerberus) to receive full-fledged boss status is Eligor from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia'', though he somehow changed from a mounted knight to a colossal plated centaur in the process.
* Two of the chest emblems available for your ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' character's costume, specifically Mystic1 and Mystic2, are in fact the seals of, respectively, Gusion and Astaroth.
* The Random Name Generator in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games seems to have at least ''some'' of the 72 demons listed in it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' has Seere (described as being neither good nor evil, [[TrueNeutral but indifferent]] in the Ars Goetia, and also manifesting as a beautiful man...although riding a pegasus rather than a golem) and, arguably, Caim (another name for Camio, who somehow [[StarfishLanguage communicates with burning embers]] and allows one to converse with animals. Remember who Caim's synchronized with?).
** In fact, this extends to nearly all of the characters. Leonard, Arioch, Verdelet[[note]]a demon that carries witches to Sabbath[[/note]], are all named after Demons, and Inuart is named after the leader of the infernal Angels, Iuvart. The prequel manga reveals Caim and Furiae's father's name: Gaap. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Yeah]].
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', the [[SummonMagic Guardian Force]] Doomtrain was originally named Glasya Labolas.
* Most of the Demon enemies in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' who are given proper titles are named after demons in the Goetia.
* As a direct example, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the first summon that Yuna receives is named Valefor, though it only borrows the name and has little else to do with the original demon. Also, Buer is the name of a species of winged eyeballs.
* A later BigBad in the ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' series is named Nebiros, an alternate name of Naberius; the name Nebiros is also used for the final boss in Psikyo's Dragon Blaze. It's worth considering that the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum identified Naberius with none other than [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Kerberos]].
** Astaroth (with various alternate spellings) shows up as the penultimate boss of Super Ghouls n' Ghosts.
* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'', two of the Summon Spirits accessible in Lost Age are Zagan (early on) and Haures (much later on). They show up again in ''Dark Dawn'', and rather appropriately, the [[BonusBoss Ancient Devil]] can summon Haures himself.
* Andras, Marchosias, and Amon (and ''maybe'' Phenex; the question is whether the original bird Phoenix or the demon knock-off is meant) appear as {{Mook}}s in ''VideoGame/{{La-Mulana}}'', with Buer appearing as a MiniBoss.
* The ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' series of video games uses this trope frequently, especially in [[VideoGame/TacticsOgre Episode VII]], where a large portion of the characters are named after Goetic demons (Barbatos, Andras, Haborym, etc.).
* ''[[VideoGame/RType R-Type Final]]'' has a couple of ships named for Goetic demons, Andromalius and Dantalion. Dantalion is particularly appropriately named, since the thing was the beginning of ships that included Bydo tissue for more than the Force itself...
* ''VideoGame/RealmOfTheMadGod'' includes Malphas as one of the higher-grade bosses.
* The ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' series uses slips of paper marked with the demons' crests to bestow magic on people. Asmodeus, Astaroth and Amon are all major figures in the second game, and a logic mini-game allows players to earn extra rewards by placing the demons of the Lesser Key into their proper places based on clues.
* ''VideoGame/{{Lemegeton}}'', once all four episodes are published, will feature appearances by all 72 demons.
* ''VideoGame/SDGundamGGeneration World'' features Halphas (based on the spelling of Malthous) Gundam, [[spoiler: and later "his" boss Barbatos]].
* [[http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Goetia_Demons Various]] members of the 72 Demons of Goetia appear as demons most of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games, almost always as part of the "Fallen" demon family. Some of the demons also appear as VideoGame/{{Persona}}s.
** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' Belial and Nebiros(Naberius on the list above) sacrifice an entire freakin' ''town'' to resurrect a CreepyChild... ''[[AliceAllusion Alice]]''.
** Some of the mythos are tempered with, though. In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', Forneus and Decarabia is depicted as friends, while the original Goetia has no mention whatsoever. Perhaps because in SMT [[http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/2/2f/ForneusSMT.jpg Forneus]] is a demonic ray and [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080704185831/megamitensei/images/7/7d/Decarabia.png Decarabia]] is a starfish with an eye... In ''{{Persona 3}}'' you even get a Fusion spell named Best Friends when the protagonist has both of them.
* Barbatos Goetia from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'' is named not only after one of the demons, but the ArsGoetia itself. The game also features bosses named Buer, Vassago, Forneus, Sabnock, Ose, Vepar, Glasya-Labolas, Dantalion, Halphas, and Gaap.
* A pretty fair number of Zafina's moves in ''{{VideoGame/Tekken}}'' are named for Goetic demons (and quite a few other mythical characters and weapons).
* Ronove and Gaap show up in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', where their status as part of the 72 is regularly mentioned. [[spoiler: As well as Zepar and Furfur.]], and a few of the Seven Stakes of Purgatory.
* ''WildArms'' also has quite a few enemies named for the Goetics. Although, for at least the first game, the [[BlindIdiotTranslation less-than-admirable romanization]] can make things thorny (e.g. Ayperos is rendered as "Aipeloss").
* A few bad guys in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' take names from Goetics, including Naberius (a lich in the Outland), Murmur (a sound elemental), and Sabnok (a Scourge MadScientist).
* The superpowered undead that Nessiah summons in ''YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' have names taken from the 72.
* The most powerful [[BlackMagic Dark Tome]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is called Goetia.
* All of the Sovani weaponry in ''VideoGame/TheLastRemnant'' are based off of the demons. They can also be upgraded to include Latin suffixes: Princeps, Rex, and Dominus- or High, King, and Lord.
* In TalesOfVesperia Karol's fell arm is Glasya-Labolas.
* In the the Metroidvania rogue-like ''VideoGame/RogueLegacy'', all minibosses are named after the 72.
* The BiggerBad that the ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' trilogy is building up to is named Amon.
* All HumongousMecha of the [[BloodKnight Shura]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3'' are named after Goetic demons, such as the Ialdabaoth, Valefor, Agares, Glasyalabolas and Andras.
* Many of the [[BossInMookClothing Unique Monsters]] in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' are named after Goetic demons, such as Wicked Sallos, Banquet Vassago, and Mischievous Naberius. They aren't actually demons, however ([[DemonicSpiders Well, at least not in the literal sense]]).

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Amon is the masked leader of the Equalist revolt in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''.

[[folder:Other]]
* In ''Literature/{{Pact}}'', the named demons borrow heavily from the Ars Goetia, with Furfur, Agares, and Andras being directly mentioned.
** A fourth, Ornias, is ascribed powers that harken to those of Orias.
* There's a [[http://pyrogina.deviantart.com/gallery/5470146?offset=0 series of art on Deviantart]] depicting the demons of the Goetia.
* The first story of ''GhostsOfAlbion'' deals with the demon Baal-Berith rising in London.

In addition to being the base of the concept of the class, most of the vestiges (Ammon, Leraje, Naberius, Ronove, Malphas, Sabnock, Andromalius, Focalor, Paimon, Agares, Andras, Buer, Astaroth, Balam, Dantalion, Haures, Ipos, Shax, Zagan, Haagenti, Halphax, Eligor, Otiax, and Marchosias are used), along with their seals, are taken directly from Ars Goetia (another good portion are [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]] like [[TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors Acererak]]). The descriptions of the vestiges' manifestations don't always match perfectly with their descriptions in the Lesser Key of Solomon, though. For example, Zagan is described in the Lesser Key as an eagle-winged bull (well, gryphon-winged, but [[FridgeLogic how]] ''[[FridgeLogic does]]'' [[FridgeLogic one tell the difference?]]), just like Haagenti, here an eagle-winged minotaur. In the Tome, he's a great yuan-ti priest who tried (and utterly failed) to achieve godhood, and manifests as a gigantic yuan-ti (i.e. a snake-man). Oddly in this instance, there is an unused Goetic demon, Botis, who manifests as a hideous viper...
** ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 4e has the Vestige Pact Warlock, who can bind Shax and Leraje as a ContinuityNod.
** In earlier editions of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', many of the devils of the Nine Hells had these names: Agares, Barbatos, Buer, Glasya and so on. It looks like this is continuing in 4e, if Alloces is anything to go by.
* The Steve Jackson Games version of ''TabletopGame/InNomine'' used some of these names in their products. For example, Furfur is the Demon Prince of Hardcore in both the English and the original French version too.
* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' features goetic demons, embodiments of a character's own Vice that can be given form in order to divest them of unsavory impulses... but that means there's a primal incarnation of Vice walking about. One [[PrestigeClass Legacy]], the Clavicularius, draws heavily upon the Ars Goetia and works to draw power from their Goetic demons while keeping them tightly bound. Another Legacy, the Bene Ashmedai, [[MrViceGuy let their base instincts have a measure of free rein]] and gain power through [[SevenDeadlySins excess]]. The latter legacy is a splinter faction of the former, and they tend not to get on well.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has at least two daemons named after Ars Goetia: Mamon, a daemon prince of Nurgle, and the Nurgle daemon lord Scaibeithrax (aka Papa Ga'ap).

* In the original Japanese version of ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'', Caulder is called Stolos--a variation of Stolas, an ''owl''-demon (all right, or possibly a raven-demon, but other than Andras, the other birds aren't usually alternately owls).
* ''Videogame/{{Aquanox}}'''s ultimate enemies, the Old Ones, were variously named for Goetics, the two strongest being Crocell and Forneus (the latter being the first game's final boss).
* The portable chapters of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' such as ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Portrait of Ruin]]'' name many enemies after the Goetic demons, such as Vapula (a winged lion), Glasya-Labolas (a winged bulldog), Stolas (an owl monster), Buer (a fiery rotating wheel-thingy) and so on.
** Malphas gets the best publicity, serving as a boss or DegradedBoss as early as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' (though originally translated as Karasuman) and serving as [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Soma's]] recurring DoubleJump soul.
** The only other Goetian (aside from noted Greek Cerberus) to receive full-fledged boss status is Eligor from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia'', though he somehow changed from a mounted knight to a colossal plated centaur in the process.
* Two of the chest emblems available for your ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' character's costume, specifically Mystic1 and Mystic2, are in fact the seals of, respectively, Gusion and Astaroth.
* The Random Name Generator in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games seems to have at least ''some'' of the 72 demons listed in it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' has Seere (described as being neither good nor evil, [[TrueNeutral but indifferent]] in the Ars Goetia, and also manifesting as a beautiful man...although riding a pegasus rather than a golem) and, arguably, Caim (another name for Camio, who somehow [[StarfishLanguage communicates with burning embers]] and allows one to converse with animals. Remember who Caim's synchronized with?).
** In fact, this extends to nearly all of the characters. Leonard, Arioch, Verdelet[[note]]a demon that carries witches to Sabbath[[/note]], are all named after Demons, and Inuart is named after the leader of the infernal Angels, Iuvart. The prequel manga reveals Caim and Furiae's father's name: Gaap. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Yeah]].
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', the [[SummonMagic Guardian Force]] Doomtrain was originally named Glasya Labolas.
* Most of the Demon enemies in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' who are given proper titles are named after demons in the Goetia.
* As a direct example, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the first summon that Yuna receives is named Valefor, though it only borrows the name and has little else to do with the original demon. Also, Buer is the name of a species of winged eyeballs.
* A later BigBad in the ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' series is named Nebiros, an alternate name of Naberius; the name Nebiros is also used for the final boss in Psikyo's Dragon Blaze. It's worth considering that the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum identified Naberius with none other than [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Kerberos]].
** Astaroth (with various alternate spellings) shows up as the penultimate boss of Super Ghouls n' Ghosts.
* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'', two of the Summon Spirits accessible in Lost Age are Zagan (early on) and Haures (much later on). They show up again in ''Dark Dawn'', and rather appropriately, the [[BonusBoss Ancient Devil]] can summon Haures himself.
* Andras, Marchosias, and Amon (and ''maybe'' Phenex; the question is whether the original bird Phoenix or the demon knock-off is meant) appear as {{Mook}}s in ''VideoGame/{{La-Mulana}}'', with Buer appearing as a MiniBoss.
* The ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' series of video games uses this trope frequently, especially in [[VideoGame/TacticsOgre Episode VII]], where a large portion of the characters are named after Goetic demons (Barbatos, Andras, Haborym, etc.).
* ''[[VideoGame/RType R-Type Final]]'' has a couple of ships named for Goetic demons, Andromalius and Dantalion. Dantalion is particularly appropriately named, since the thing was the beginning of ships that included Bydo tissue for more than the Force itself...
* ''VideoGame/RealmOfTheMadGod'' includes Malphas as one of the higher-grade bosses.
* The ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' series uses slips of paper marked with the demons' crests to bestow magic on people. Asmodeus, Astaroth and Amon are all major figures in the second game, and a logic mini-game allows players to earn extra rewards by placing the demons of the Lesser Key into their proper places based on clues.
* ''VideoGame/{{Lemegeton}}'', once all four episodes are published, will feature appearances by all 72 demons.
* ''VideoGame/SDGundamGGeneration World'' features Halphas (based on the spelling of Malthous) Gundam, [[spoiler: and later "his" boss Barbatos]].
* [[http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Goetia_Demons Various]] members of the 72 Demons of Goetia appear as demons most of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games, almost always as part of the "Fallen" demon family. Some of the demons also appear as VideoGame/{{Persona}}s.
** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' Belial and Nebiros(Naberius on the list above) sacrifice an entire freakin' ''town'' to resurrect a CreepyChild... ''[[AliceAllusion Alice]]''.
** Some of the mythos are tempered with, though. In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', Forneus and Decarabia is depicted as friends, while the original Goetia has no mention whatsoever. Perhaps because in SMT [[http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/2/2f/ForneusSMT.jpg Forneus]] is a demonic ray and [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080704185831/megamitensei/images/7/7d/Decarabia.png Decarabia]] is a starfish with an eye... In ''{{Persona 3}}'' you even get a Fusion spell named Best Friends when the protagonist has both of them.
* Barbatos Goetia from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'' is named not only after one of the demons, but the ArsGoetia itself. The game also features bosses named Buer, Vassago, Forneus, Sabnock, Ose, Vepar, Glasya-Labolas, Dantalion, Halphas, and Gaap.
* A pretty fair number of Zafina's moves in ''{{VideoGame/Tekken}}'' are named for Goetic demons (and quite a few other mythical characters and weapons).
* Ronove and Gaap show up in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', where their status as part of the 72 is regularly mentioned. [[spoiler: As well as Zepar and Furfur.]], and a few of the Seven Stakes of Purgatory.
* ''WildArms'' also has quite a few enemies named for the Goetics. Although, for at least the first game, the [[BlindIdiotTranslation less-than-admirable romanization]] can make things thorny (e.g. Ayperos is rendered as "Aipeloss").
* A few bad guys in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' take names from Goetics, including Naberius (a lich in the Outland), Murmur (a sound elemental), and Sabnok (a Scourge MadScientist).
* The superpowered undead that Nessiah summons in ''YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' have names taken from the 72.
* The most powerful [[BlackMagic Dark Tome]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is called Goetia.
* All of the Sovani weaponry in ''VideoGame/TheLastRemnant'' are based off of the demons. They can also be upgraded to include Latin suffixes: Princeps, Rex, and Dominus- or High, King, and Lord.
* In TalesOfVesperia Karol's fell arm is Glasya-Labolas.
* In the the Metroidvania rogue-like ''VideoGame/RogueLegacy'', all minibosses are named after the 72.
* The BiggerBad that the ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' trilogy is building up to is named Amon.
* All HumongousMecha of the [[BloodKnight Shura]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3'' are named after Goetic demons, such as the Ialdabaoth, Valefor, Agares, Glasyalabolas and Andras.
* Many of the [[BossInMookClothing Unique Monsters]] in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' are named after Goetic demons, such as Wicked Sallos, Banquet Vassago, and Mischievous Naberius. They aren't actually demons, however ([[DemonicSpiders Well, at least not in the literal sense]]).

* Amon is the masked leader of the Equalist revolt in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''.

* In ''Literature/{{Pact}}'', the named demons borrow heavily from the Ars Goetia, with Furfur, Agares, and Andras being directly mentioned.
** A fourth, Ornias, is ascribed powers that harken to those of Orias.
* There's a [[http://pyrogina.deviantart.com/gallery/5470146?offset=0 series of art on Deviantart]] depicting the demons of the Goetia.
* The first story of ''GhostsOfAlbion'' deals with the demon Baal-Berith rising in London.
* In ''Literature/VoidDomain'', [[spoiler: Zagan]] shows up. He is explicitly named as one of the seventy-two royalty of Hell.
