*[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilles_de_Rais Gilles de Rais]] was infamously accused of killing children for satanic rituals. Whether or not these charges are true is debatable.

* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'': Several of the people who ended up becoming vampires in Resurection were satanists in their human lives, including Claudia Demona and [[spoiler:Thurim]]. Of course, they loved HumanSacrifice.

* Inverted in the creepypasta story "The Satanist with Christian Friends", wherein the young protagonist is a Satanist and sees it as just as normal as being Christian or Jewish or Buddhist or whatever--but the reason his family has to keep moving every so often is that the MoralGuardians tend to find out and flip out with a vengeance. The story itself culminates with a "good Christian" trying to make the narrator (who is in grade school) repent of Satanism by any means possible--including invoking the Salem Witch Trials.

RealLife Satanism can be divided into two categories. One of them, sometimes called "[=LaVeyan=] Satanism" after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_LaVey one of its more famous figures]], doesn't believe in Satan as a physical entity, and instead refers to him as a symbol for freedom to [[UsefulNotes/EthicalHedonism follow your own desires]] and/or for [[RebelLeader fighting]] [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters against]] [[GodIsEvil tyranny]]. The other one, which is called "Theistic Satanism", [[SatanIsGood worships or reveres Satan as a deity]]. Both of them, generally speaking, view Christian morality as self-destructive for both individuals and society. It's a religion whose followers, generally speaking, are no more or less likely to be "evil" than the followers of any other religion, [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad though their sense of what constitutes right and wrong is]] [[BlueAndOrangeMorality likely to veer far from the mainstream]]. In reality, it is more akin to the Pagan religions of old, their primary belief being that Satan and the demons are a corruption of the old [[Myth/MesopotamianMythology Mesopotamian,]] [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian,]] and [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek and Roman]] gods. And no, human sacrifice is not a widely accepted practice in most branches (though ''symbolic'' sacrifices may be -- but that is NotSoDifferent from the Christian Communion, which is itself a symbolic sacrifice of the body and blood of UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}).

* The main antagonists of ''Film/HackOLantern'' are every Satanism stereotype imaginable, in that they are dark wizards who will murder anybody who gets in their way of corrupting the children. They also try to do the "Devil Horn" symbol, but due to errors in the filmmaking process, end up doing "I Love You" in American Sign Language.

* The creepypasta story "From Hell I Write" centers around a family of HollywoodSatanist|s that worship an ill-defined, goatlike demon that requires blood sacrifices, preferring the children of the neighborhood. The narrator's friend is a reluctant participant of these bizarre ceremonies, which eventually culminate in the narrator's entire family, including himself, being possessed by demons and condemned to Hell.

* ''[[ShownTheirWork Strongly]]'' averted with the Maledict-worshipping Marmolims in Episode 69 of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. Despite the pentagrams/Demonish chanting/black robes, the Satan worshipers are all [[DarkIsNotEvil quite decent people]] who immediately aid Sonic and his friends.
