* Mr. Anon from ''OpenBlue'' is a case where the name isn't quite obvious. Indeed, it doesn't even seem to mean anything, and isn't even shorthand for Anonymous. The clue for GenreSavvy [=RPers=], however, are his catchphrases, tendency to [[ShoutOut ask people to guess his name]], and favorite activity of [[DealWithTheDevil making deals with people]].

* Art/SistineChapel: In order to get ''The Temptations of Christ'' right, Satan needs a disguise to cover his wild, hideous body. Naturally, he goes for the most innocent thing he can find: a black robe that covers his whole body. Well, the bat wings, but Christ is too polite to make a point of it.

* [[Series/{{Hannibal}} Dr. Hannibal Lecter]] -- or at least, that's the subtext of the series. During his audition for the role of Lecter, Creator/MadsMikkelsen pitched his take on the character as a literal manifestation of Lucifer, and showrunner Creator/BryanFuller ran with it.
-->''He talked about the character not so much as 'Hannibal Lecter the cannibal psychiatrist', but as Satan — this fallen angel who's enamored with mankind and had an affinity for who we are as people, but was definitely not among us — he was other. I thought that was a really cool, interesting approach, because I love science fiction and horror and — not that we'd ever do anything deliberately to suggest this - but having it sub-textually play as him being Lucifer felt like a really interesting kink to the series. It was slightly different than anything that's been done before and it also gives it a slightly more epic quality if you watch the show through the prism of, 'This is Satan at work, tempting someone with the apple of their psyche'.''

* The mysterious stranger in ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' never actually identifies himself (he claims, in a possibly sarcastic tone, to have forgotten his name,) but he appears in locations that such a SharpDressedMan has no business in being, knows a huge amount about John's past (including the name of one of the random civilians John's gang killed in their outlaw days), calls himself "an accountant, in a way", and in their third encounter John gets fed up and demands answers or "[he] will not be responsible for [his] actions" he calmly tells him "Oh, but you will be responsible". John then shouts "Damn you!", the man replies "Yes, many have", doesn't seem to notice the three bullets John shoots at him and then just vanishes. [[spoiler: This is after a conversation where he muses over what a beautiful spot they're at, which is right where John later gets buried.]] It's not clear who exactly he is; common interpretations are that the man is God, St Peter, Death, or, of course, the Devil.

* A common situation in Jack Chick's "ComicBook/ChickTracts"' (for example, ''Somebody Goofed''). A person is considering accepting Jesus, but a friend convinces him not to—"you'll lose all your friends" or "you have plenty of time for that later". The person dies unsaved, goes to hell, and sees who his "friend" was all along.

* In ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'', the story's narrator / hero's sidekick Murmur turns out to be [[spoiler: the Duke of Hell with the same name]]. To be fair, the name's a lot more subtle that Lou Cypher, and isn't likely to mean anything to players without a background in demonology mythology/MegaTen fan.

* Xellos from ''{{Slayers}}''. Among his AlwaysChaoticEvil kind he's the most powerful one not counting godlike Dark Lords, but prefers to use manipulation rather than violence. Two most powerful Dark Lords died from consequences of one of them employing Xellos against the other -- the second strongest managed to injure him in one-on-one battle, but he still got away. He's also [[NobleDemon honorable in his own way]] and [[AffablyEvil can be a good company]] when he wants. In his world few humans have thorough knowledge of demonology, so he walks among them under his own name and title.
** Not to mention that his ''self-proclaimed'' title is "Mysterious Priest". If people assume "Priest" always means "user of WhiteMagic", it's their fault.
