* The [[ArtifactOfDoom Book of Darkness]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' has 666 pages. The last Mistress of it, Hayate Yagami is also associated with the number 6, who has [[GoodWingsEvilWings seraph wings]]. Six years after the Book of Darkness Incident, she decides to found her own section to investigate the Relic incidents, four years later she achives her goal by founding the Riot Force 6. Six years after the JS Incident, she founds another section, Special Duty Section 6. The Yagami family has six members, Hayate herself, the four Wolkenritter and Reinforce Eins/Zwei. They adopt later a seventh member, Agito; but this can be interpreted as Hayate having six children now.

In Mandarin {{Chinese|Language}}, 666 sounds like the phrase that roughly translates as "everything going smoothly", so the number is considered lucky in China especially for commercial undertakings.

* ''VideoGame/BrawlMinus'' buffed Ganondorf's Warlock Punch to ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill levels -- from 32% damage and 102 units of knockback to ''666%'' damage and ''80,000'' units of knockback (eight times the force of Jigglypuff's shield jump). As a nod to this, the fans who choose not to call this move the Minus Warlock Punch instead call it the '''Satan Punch'''.

* The first [[AppleMacintosh Apple]] computer ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Apple I]]) went on sale in July 1976 at the price of $666.66. This was due mostly to a collection of mundane coincidences: Steve Jobs setting the price at $500 (plus a 1/3rd markup), because Steve Wozniak "liked repeating digits" and both Steves' general ignorance of the significance of the number.[[note]] This was before the Internet.[[/note]]

** In the Eighth Child arc of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', a prophecy stated that the BigBad Vamdemon (Myotismon in the dub), [[NotQuiteDead who was thought to be killed moments ago]], will rise in [[{{Satan}} his true form]] at the hour of the Beast. And that evening, at 6:06 PM and 6 seconds, his insanely powerful OneWingedAngel form arises. Surprisingly, this plot point survived completely intact in the dub.
