* ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. The focus of the episode "[=TeamLucifer=]". Lucifer himself finds it a disgusting and insulting perversion of what he stands for. He doesn't want people worshiping him -- that's God's schtick. When be barges into a satanic ritual and starts complaining, the coven like what he's saying and start chanting his words, causing Lucifer to complain that they're missing the whole point of being a rebel. And why do people keep associating him with goats -- he's got nothing to do with them! When someone starts murdering the coven in 'human sacrifices', Lucifer is genuinely angry, as he regards them as misguided idiots, not evildoers who deserved to be punished, especially not in his name.

* ''Film/FaustLoveOfTheDamned'': The Hand. Orgies, human sacrifices, wishing for the death of all humanity, led by the Devil himself, it's all there.

* Defied by ''Series/CriminalMinds''; in one episode that dealt with a murder that looked like Hollywood Satanism, the agents specify that Satanic ritual murder hasn't taken place to their knowledge (that's not to say crazy people didn't associate Satan with their crimes, but that there was no proven instance of organized human sacrifice). In the end, the "satanists" in the town are mostly just edgy punk kids who don't hurt anyone, and [[spoiler: the killer was one of the popular kids who pinned the murder on the satanists as a ploy to get away with it.]][[/folder]]

* ''Series/InspectorMorse''. In "The Day of the Devil", a rapist who is a committed satanist escapes from prison. In this case satanism is just something the criminal uses to justify his sociopathic view of the world. He is a true believer though, which eventually causes his downfall.

* Crops up, as you'd imagine, more than a few times in both versions of ''TheWorldOfDarkness'':
** ''MageTheAscension'' has the Nephandi, fallen mages who want to corrupt/annihilate all of reality in the name of their dark masters. The Infernalists are one faction of them, whose tendencies most often involve tempting others into wickedness and selling their souls to dark entities.
** Belial's Brood from ''VampireTheRequiem'' plays ''credit'' to [=LaVeyan=] Satanism while still invoking a number of ReligionOfEvil tropes. A number of members of the Brood don't worship Satan as an actual entity, but regard him as an ideological construct that represents the Beast that screams in the souls of all vampires. However, as the Beast is a representation of all that's savage and terrible about the vampiric condition and grows stronger the more detached one becomes from [[KarmaMeter Humanity]], they do the usual black mass/virgin sacrifice/dark pact stuff in an effort to reach true divinity.
