* Creator/PiersAnthony's ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series has Natasha, "Ah, Satan" [[SdrawkcabName spelled backwards]]. It's also a legitimately common name which originated in Russia as a derivative of Natalya, so it doesn't seem like quite a dead giveaway… Just plain weird, anyway, as it's a female name, and the character is male.

* The demon "Sebastian Michaelis" of ''BlackButler'' is a quite clever example via GeniusBonus. Sebastian is the stock name for butlers in Japanese TV, but [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastien_Michaelis Sebastien Michaelis]] was an actual person, a French inquisitor and [[TheWitchHunter witch hunter]] who wrote about supposed instances of demonic possession. Thus, having a demon calling himself that is a similar effect to [[Film/TheDevilsAdvocate having Satan call himself John Milton]]. In story, it's eventually revealed that Sebastian's name was given to him by Ciel, who [[spoiler: named him after his dog, something Sebastian isn't thrilled about (he's a cat person)]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' has Mr Lucius Needful, who owns a mysterious store that offers magical items for free whose "price" is that they always have some kind of ironic twist attached to them. Rick proves to be extraordinarily GenreSavvy as he asks him outright if he's the Devil upon meeting him. After that, Needful doesn't even bother hiding it and straight-up calls himself the Devil.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. Lucifer straight up tells everyone that his name is Lucifer Morningstar and that he is the Devil. It is then subverted because in Los Angeles people are used to strange names and assume that it is just a stage name and refuse to believe him that he is the Lord of Hell.

** And lest we forget the anagrams. "The Royal Pant"? Are you seriously expecting any CoC-savvy gamer to not find that suspect?
