* A variation comes up in a Creator/RonWhite comedy bit where he [[YourCheatingHeart cheats on his wife]] with a woman he meets in Ohio after not having sex in three months. As it turns out, the shoulder devil isn't necessary.
--> '''Ron:''' And you know that little guy that sits on your shoulder and reminds you of your prior commitments and your moral fortitude? I didn't hear a peep out of that guy. He hadn't been laid in three months either. He was speechless for twenty minutes; then he was like, "Suck her titties!" "I was gonna!" I'm having a three-way with my conscience. As soon as the whole thing's over, he's back at his post. "That was '''WRONG''', mister!" "Hey, twenty minutes ago, you were beatin' off on my shoulder, Monkey Boy."
** This gets illustrated in Ron White's book ''I Had the Right to Remain Silent...But I Didn't Have the Ability'' with Devil!Ron egging him on while Angel!Ron conspicuously does nothing.

** The [=AIs=] play with this trope -- there's (usually) only one of them to an individual, but they appear floating over the person's shoulder and exist to help and give advice. If you have a good one, great -- you don't have to worry about its evil counterpart undermining its efforts. Unfortunately, that same lack of symmetry means that if you get stuck with an evil one, you're pretty much hosed.
** Season 10 gives us an instance of "Bad Angel, Worse Angel" when Gamma and Sigma team up to dupe Carolina into [[spoiler:choosing to have two AI implanted into her]].

Expect a female character's Devil to dress all {{Stripperiffic}}, to {{invoke|dTrope}} EvilIsSexy, HornyDevils and SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains. If a character is particularly bad, it's common is to give them ''two'' Devils (and visa versa for particularly good characters). Another is for the devil to kill, injure or incapacitate the angel, leaving only the devil as counsel ([[KnightTemplar or vice]] [[GoodIsNotNice versa]]). Sometimes the devil for males mentions that the Angel wears a "Dress". It is far less common for the angel to tell the devil to PleasePutSomeClothesOn. As the conversation among the three progresses, it may drift away from anything to do with good or evil which resembles a SeinfeldianConversation involving {{Metaphorgotten}} or SidetrackedByTheAnalogy.
