** The named archdemons are Azazel, Lilith, Alistair, and Crowley (the last two being a ShoutOut to the occultist Aleister Crowley), and [[SealedEvilInACan Samhain]]. Their boss Lucifer, who is not a demon but an archangel, sits at the top of the hierarchy ([[SealedEvilInACan despite his absence]]) and is seen by the demons as their GodOfEvil.
** They are also marked by getting their own eye colours, except for Crowley. Instead of inherently being more powerful, he fought his way to being the King of Hell by sheer {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry and therefore retained the red eye color of the Crossroads demons. The demonic hierarchy goes something like this: [[DealWithTheDevil Red Eyes]] < [[{{Mooks}} Black Eyes]] < [[TheHeavy White Eyes]] < [[CoDragons Yellow Eyes]]

** The LawfulEvil devils are ruled by Asmodeus (probably the most direct Satan-analogue) and overseen by a pretty complicated hierarchy of devils, the most important one being the other eight Archdevils or Lords of the Nine: [[DragonAscendant Bel]], [[ExtraOreDinary Dis]][[ProperlyParanoid pater]], [[{{Greed}} Mammon]], [[LadyInRed Fierna]] (and her father, [[ParentalIncest lover]] and secret co-ruler or [[TheManBehindTheMan "advisor"]] [[HornyDevils Belial]] , [[SealedEvilInACan Levi]][[AnIcePerson stus]], [[DaddysLittleVillain Glasya]], [[BalefulPolymorph Baal]][[FallenHero zebul]], and [[TheStarscream Mephist]][[{{Hellfire}} opheles]]; there are also a couple of exiles, most notably Geryon and Moloch. The lesser unique devils are known as Dukes of Hell and serve the above as vassals.

* ''Webcomic/DaughterOfTheLilies'': Drath are divided into lesser and greater variants. The greater ones (like Brody) are the really dangerous ones that can leave pieces of themselves inside you.

* The strongest of ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl'''s various demons are those represented by an ampersand (&) in the ASCII version. There's Geryon, the gatekeeper to the four Hells. The bottom floor of each branch of Hell contain one of the hell lords (Asmodeus, Antaeus, Ereshkigal, and Dispater), all of whom guard a [[MacGuffin Rune of Zot]] apiece. The endless demonic realms of Pandemonium contain four more named demon lords (Cerebov, Lom Lobon, Mnoleg, and Gloorx Vloq), each of whom presides over one specific level and guards another Rune. Other levels in Pandemonium are each ruled by a randomly-generated Pandemonium Lord, all of whom have a chance of guarding yet another Rune. All of these are extremely challenging {{Bonus Boss}}es since you can find enough Runes to complete the game elsewhere in the dungeon.

* Ratash, the BigBad in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheForgottenSands'' in the [=PS3/Xbox 360/PC=] version is an evil Djinn that looks [[BigRedDevil positively demonic]] and is described as "a lord among his people". He qualifies since djinns are regarded as the Middle-Eastern equivalent to demons, though not all of them are evil since the Prince's main ally Razia is one of the last good djinn.

* ''You'' in [[NexusWar Nexus Clash]] if your character is a Dark Oppressor. There's a whole range of powers that the Oppressor can learn that represent his/her increasing rank in [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Stygia]] and according power to corrupt and rule their immediate vicinity. The catch is that a lot of these powers only work ''inside'' of Stygia and most demons prefer to meddle in the mortal realm, but a suitably ranked Dark Oppressor surrounded by followers is a phenomenally dangerous opponent on their own home turf.

* ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has the archdevils Barbatos (an honorary archdevil), Dispater, Mammon, Belial, Geryon, Moloch, Baalzebul, and Mephistopheles all answering to Asmodeus who is both the greatest of the archdevils and one of the [[TimeAbyss two first and original gods]]--he had a kinder [[GodIsGood companion]], but Asmodeus [[CainAndAbel killed him]] and [[UnPerson erased every hint of his name from the face of the multiverse]]. There are countless demon lords, including Lamashtu (who like managed to achieve true godhood), Pazuzu, Baphomet, Cyth V'Sug, Nocticula, Angazhan, Abraxis, Kostchtei, and Flaucos. Finally, the NeutralEvil daemons are ruled by the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, a quartet of archdaemons who once answered to the singular Oinodaemon.

* ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' started out with a few for each race of fiends and has only expanded the archdevils Barbatos (an honorary archdevil), Dispater, Mammon, Belial, Geryon, Moloch, Baalzebul, and Mephistopheles all answering to roster since.
** A quartet of fiends have actual divinity status.
Asmodeus who is both the greatest of the archdevils and one of the [[TimeAbyss two first and original gods]]--he had a kinder [[GodIsGood companion]], but Asmodeus [[CainAndAbel killed him]] and [[UnPerson erased every hint of his name from the face of the multiverse]]. Lamashtu was a demon lord who managed to kill a god and steal their dominion over beasts, allowing her to spread her monstrous offspring through the planes. The Oinodaemon was the original daemon and their absolute ruler until he was overthrown and imprisoned by his lieutenants, though the entire plane of Abaddon remains unequivocally bound to him. Rovagug was a qlippoth lord who cut a bloody swathe through armies of gods before being sealed in the heart of a planet, where he still makes his presence known in the form of [[{{Kaiju}} nation destroying beasts]] that occasionally slip through the cracks of his prison.
** Under Asmodeus, hell is ruled by the archdevils Barbatos[[note]] Not actually a devil, or for that matter anything anyone knows about, but he holds a place in their ranks.[[/note]], Dispater, Mammon, Belial, Geryon, Moloch, Baalzebul, and Mephistopheles, each of whom rules one of its rings. Under them are the infernal dukes, the elite of Hell's society, and the Malebranche, powerful devils each transformed to conquer a mortal world.
**
There are countless demon lords, including Lamashtu (who like managed to achieve true godhood), Pazuzu, Deskari, Abraxas, Baphomet, Cyth V'Sug, Dagon, Nocticula, Angazhan, Abraxis, Kostchtei, Shivaska, Zevgabizeb, and Flaucos. Finally, There are also nascent demon lords like Treerazer and Nightripper who are near the final stage of their growth to become lords themselves.
** The
NeutralEvil daemons are ruled by the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, Apollyon, Szuriel, Trelmarixian, and Charon. Serving under them are the daemonic harbingers, powerful unique daemons like Corosbel, Folca, Llamolaek, Vorasha, Zelishkar, Stygivod, and Pavnuri who work to further their goals.
** The divs, a race of outsiders made from corrupted genies, are ruled by Ahriman, a shadow of destruction that followed genies into existence.
** Asura ranas are asura who've built on enough cycles of reincarnation to become powerful rulers of their kind. A few of the most well known of their kind are Andak, Chugara, Maeha, Ioramvel, and Taraksun.
** The qlippoth are the oldest beings in the multiverse from the depths of the Abyss, and the oldest of their kind are the qlippoth lords. Given the nature of both qlippoth and the Abyss they're more rarely encountered than the leaders of other kinds of fiends, but Chavazvug, Isph-Aun-Vuln, Oaur-Ooung, Thuskchoon, and Yamasoth are a few of those known. Some of the demon lords, such as Dagon, Cyth V-sug, Jubilex, Mazmezz, and Yhidothrus were once qlippoth lords but became tainted by mortal sin and transformed into demons.
** The Queens of Night are
a quartet of archdaemons fallen good outsiders who remain something distinct from the devils and demons fallen outsiders typically become. They manipulate mortals and outsiders alike, making plans to conquer the planes they once answered served.
** Kyton demagogues are the apex of their kind, kytons who have risen past the few barriers that restrain their sadistic pleasures. Among their numbers are Sugroz, Kaikyton, and Fharaas.
** Oni daimyo like Akuma, Yabu, and Nataka are the strongest of their kind, though the fact that they actually reside on the Material Plane means they're not as widely known.
** Sahkil tormenters are masters of fear and suffering, perverting the normal flow of souls
to the singular Oinodaemon.Great Beyond. Some of the more widely known ones are Charg, Nameless, Zipacna, Velgaas, Dachzerul, and Iggeret.
** Rakshasa immortals are rakshasa who've become powerful enough to break the cycle of mortality and become something akin to demigods. Compared to the other fiend lords they're fairly minor, more concerned with their own pursuits and pleasures than worshippers.
