Compare and contrast EldritchAbomination, which, as horrifying as it may be and act, are most often completely amoral and not malicious - though there can be some overlap. Compare GodIsEvil and EverybodyHatesHades. If a God of Evil exists in a setting where the BigBad who actually drives the plot is a mortal, they'll be the GreaterScopeVillain. May overlap with or also be a MadGod. May be TheAntiGod if it's powerful enough.

If there is a personified representation of evil in a world with no other deities, that's case of DevilButNoGod.

** The word ''satan'' literally just means adversary. One interpretation is that in the early Jewish writings, Satan wasn't evil, but a sort of divine prosecutor, testing Creation. Thus in the book of Job, he plays the role of adversary testing Job's fidelity to see if it's genuine. The contrasting interpretation is that Satan's actions in Job were actually evil, and note that there was a difference between ''satan'', which was used to describe any sort of adversary, and ''ha satan'', which was used specifically to refer to the FallenAngel made himself the adversary of God.

** In early Jewish/pre-Hebraic writings, Satan wasn't evil, but a sort of divine prosecutor, testing Creation. The word satan literally just means adversary. Thus in the book of Job, he plays the role of adversary testing Job's fidelity to see if it's genuine. In the Babylonian exile (6th century BC), many Jews were taken in captivity to Babylon, from which they were eventually rescued when the Persians conquered Babylon. This exposed the Jewish people to Persia's Zoroastrian religion (see above), which nestled itself into Jewish thinking with a group of Jews who were called (mostly by their opponents), Persians, or Parsis or... Pharisees. This group largely disappeared into early Christianity and Satan has played less of a role in Judaism since. To put it another way, the reason many Christians seem to view Satan as being almost, but not quite, as powerful as God is because that's exactly how Zoroastrians view(ed) Ahriman and Ahura Mazda.
