* Lucifer on, well, ''Series/{{Lucifer}}'' presents himself as the victim of Bad Press. He doesn't seem to be lying about this, as his actions throughout the series make him an antihero at worst.

* Lucifer on, well, ''Series/{{Lucifer}}'' presents himself as the victim of Bad Press. He doesn't seem Since it's loosely based on Gaiman's comic series, he's actually somewhere between an AntiHero and a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who happens to be lying about this, as his actions throughout have a [[PunchClockVillain really nasty job]]. (Also, he's considerably nicer than most of the series make him an antihero at worst.people ''opposing'' him.)

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[BigBad Aku]] is a variation. He is a fragment of an EldritchAbomination but, unlike that thing that clearly [[BlueAndOrangeMorality had a completely alien mind]], Aku gained intelligence and sapience. Basically, he is the living embodiment of evil, and is so powerful and monstrous that almost everyone fears and loathes him, [[EvenEvilHasStandards including other villains]]. Besides, his conquest in the world seems to be a direct parallel to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse apocalypse]], and the Pit of Hate seems to be a parallel to {{Hell}}.

** [[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 Season 5]] seems to emphasize this point further, since there is a [[Characters/SamuraiJackCultOfAku malevolent cult]] that worships Aku and treat him as a deity.

* Although never making a direct appearance Satan is a big part of ''Manga/KamikazeKaitouJeanne''. It turns out [[spoiler: that Maron is actually working for Satan and not God when she collects the demons in paintings. She finds out too late to prevent Satan's overthrow of Heaven. Or so it seems ...]]

** The second depiction is in Chapel's ceiling, which adapts the first parts of the Literature/BookOfGenesis, where the is Devil depicted as a beautiful, scaled women with a tail in the place of legs. It's unlike from most other depictions of Satan, but it does have much in common with images of UsefulNotes/{{Lilith}}. In any case, the beauty of the woman acts as a reminder of the seductiveness of evil, while her scaled tail, which she hides from Adam and Eve, reveals that the Devil is hideous no matter how appealing he may seem.

** The Literature/BookOfJob introduces it's exploration of the problem of evil, the idea that an infinitely good God could not exist if there is evil, by painting a scene where the satan, or "the accuser" in English, goes to God's court and wagers that God's most righteous follower, Job, can be turned away from him if he was faced with evil and suffering. With God's allowance, the satan strips Job of his property, his wealth, and his family, and goes unmentioned as Job questions why God would allow such a thing.

** Season 3 then gives us the even more shocking reveal that [[spoiler: Satan is the ''weaker'' of the two brothers; [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly as a spirtual being that requires people to believe in him to maintain his strength, he is at a disadvantage in the age of science and enlightenment]], while the terrestrial Dracula only needs blood and so has grown stronger and more dangerous over the centuries]].

%%* While Arceus is the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' equivalent of {{God}}, [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon Primal Dialga]] , the [[spoiler: (fake)]] BigBad of the second ''Pokemon Mystery Dungeon'' game (who looks like an evil Dialga with a black body and red stripes instead of a blue body and green stripes) may actually be the series' equivalent of the Devil.
