* In ''Webcomic/HolyBibble'', Satan has a council of fallen angels he tends to keep company with, including Asmodeus, Samael, Beelzebub, Leviathan, and Beliel. Among their abilities is shape-shifting, military intelligence, and some measure of straight up reality-warping.* ''{{Webcomic/Zoophobia}}'''s Major Styx is {{Satan}}'s right-hand man.

* ''{{Webcomic/Zoophobia}}'''s Major Styx is {{Satan}}'s right-hand man.
* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' you have various [[GodOfEvil Evil Gods]] fighting for power under [[BigBad Chaos]], Archfiends (the classical four... all with [[DysfunctionJunction their own personality problems]]), and then the legions of hell underneath. All of them tend to be incredibly [[ChaoticEvil evil and devious]], and hell is, well [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]]. Of course, when [[OmnicidalManiac Black Mage]] temporarily [[HellHasNewManagement becomes king of hell]] for twenty minutes, all of these afore-mentioned evil beings (and the universe in general) experience a terrified OhCrap moment complete with OminousLatinChanting. Luckily the [[NiceJobFixingItVillain forces of Evil]] manage to kick him [[RestrainingBolt back into his body]], [[CosmicPlaything and the universe isn't stupid enough to let him die again any time soon]] ([[IronButtmonkey although this doesn't stop it from kicking his ass into the gutter for all that its worth]]). One GodOfEvil ''did'' try to make Black Mage his Archdemon[=/=]Antichrist[=/=]Evil Messiah, but [[SpannerInTheWorks that didn't work out too well]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Darken}}'' gives you the nine levels of hell, each one ruled by a devil. The only ones that are names are Asmodeus of level nine, and the overlord. Mephistopheles on level eight, and Baalzebul on level seven. Apparently the other six levels are boring... [[http://darkencomic.com/?webcomic_post=20050622 Nice Explanation.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has the three Archfiends (Lee, Nero and Cedric) from the [[CelestialBureaucracy Inter-Fiend Cooperation Commission]].
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'':
** Lord Horribus, who leads the Dimension of Pain demons, but is still subservient to the Demon King, a literal personification of evil. Also other demon aristocracy like him, at least other Demon Lords and Queens, such as his sister Deplora of the Dimension of Grief.
** The Demon King counts equally well for this and for GodOfEvil.
** There's also K'Z'K, the immensely powerful demon who's supposed to bring about the end of the world and [[spoiler: is actually one of the pillars of reality created at the very beginning as the opposite counterpart of the Creator, imprisoned in the form of a demon in an attempt to stop him destroying creation again and again.]]
* Most of the introduced demon characters in ''Webcomic/HeartCore'' are these, but the leader of them all is Royce.

* Morgath of VideoGame/AvencastRiseOfTheMage is the commander of the hordes of daemons you fight through the game. He's an oddly passive example since he only warred with humanity after a human empire sought him out to use his organs for spare parts.

* The Daedric Princes of the ''Franchise/ElderScrolls'' series, though some are more openly demonic than others. Some of the biggest offenders are Mehrunes Dagon, Prince of Destruction, Molag Bal, Prince of Domination, and Sheogorath, [[MadGod Prince of Madness]].

** 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: [[GeneralRipper Bel]], [[ExtraOreDinary Dis]][[ProperlyParanoid pater]], [[{{Greed}} Mammon]], [[HornyDevils Belial]] [[ParentalIncest (and his daughter and co-ruler Fierna)]], [[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.

* In the original ''Manga/DragonBall'' series, King Piccolo and his son Piccolo Jr. were portrayed as such, before '''Dragon Ball Z'' [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] them into being aliens. ''Z'' also had its own example with Dabura.

* This is the general role played by the Daevas in UsefulNotes/{{Zoroastrianism}} (theorized to have originally been the gods of the religion that was dominant in ancient Iran during and prior to Zoroaster's life, and the names of several of whom resemble gods from Vedic Hinuism). Traditionally, there are six main Daevas, each corresponding to a particular form of evil: Akoman (Evil Thought), Indar (who freezes the minds of the righteous), Nanghait (Disconent), Sawar (Oppression), Tauriz (Destruction), and Zariz (who poisons plants), though there are a number of lesser ones as well. Collectively, they are evil counterparts to the Amesha Spentas (roughly equivalent to archangels) and are the minions of [[GodOfEvil Angra Mainyu/Ahriman]].
