* The Outsider from the ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' series is not a proactive force of destruction, but much closer to the original Hebrew definition of Satan as the accuser/tempter from the Book of Job, as instead of being a proactive force of destruction, he grants pieces of his power to a select few individuals at any time and watches what they do with it. A strong argument can be made both that this is meant mainly as a test of his chosen's moral character, and that the Outsider knows damn well how quickly power goes to their heads and relies on their fallibility to sow chaos and misery in the world without getting his hands dirty.

* Most ''TwistedMetal'' continuities that go into the backstory of ManipulativeBastard BigBad game master Calypso have it that he either stole his wish granting power from a demon or got it in a DealWithTheDevil. But the latest game's story goes further than that. It has the Preacher convinced that Calypso is ''the devil himself'', and the details on the differences between him and the other versions of Calypso make this allegation hard to argue against.

* [[spoiler:Dr. Clef]] of ''The Wiki/SCPFoundation'' may or may not be Lucifer. A storyline involving both [[spoiler:Dr. Clef]] and [[spoiler:SCP-239]] strongly implies it. His response when interviewed about it is to first claim he is, then claim he was lying, then point out there's no way to be sure whether he was lying about being Lucifer, or lying about lying about it. Oh, and if this is the case, [[spoiler:SCP-239]] may or may not also be the physical incarnation of God or the Second Coming of Christ.

WordOfGod says that he's ''not'' Satan in the traditional sense, but he ''does'' rebel against God. Word of God also says that he's the one who cast Adam and Eve out of Eden, which either makes him the serpent or the Archangel Jophiel [[spoiler: which, incidentally, would make Clef his ''own'' SCP-001 proposal]].

* ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'': The large demon of the "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence, Chernabog, was originally noted by Walt Disney himself, as well as Deems Taylor in the roadshow footage, as being Satan himself. Disney hired Bela Lugosi to come and be filmed as a model for this scene. They photographed him in his cape to capture his movements, flourishes, facial expressions and signature hand gestures to bring their Satan to life.

* In ''Film/TheNinthGate'', Johnny Depp looks for a book cowritten by Satan, is stalked by a (female) Satan who helps him on his quest, and then later has sex with her to gain immortal power.
* ''Two of a Kind'' (the second John Travolta[=/=]Olivia Newton-John vehicle) featured a Sodom-and-Gomorrah plot, with God about to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the earth]] and bring all humanity into heaven unless a small band of angels can make two people (Travolta and Newton-John) fall in love with each other. The Devil hassles the angels throughout most of the film, until the nature of God's challenge is explained to him...

* ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'' was a feature film that cast AlPacino as Satan, undercover as the head of the world's most powerful law firm.
* ''Film/EndOfDays'' has Satan trying to mate his [[ChosenOne chosen bride]], while possessing a Wall Street banker, played by Gabriel Byrne.

* The "LouisCypher" joke was done in ''Film/AngelHeart'', in which Robert [=DeNiro=] played the role. In one scene, he remarks that in many cultures eggs are seen as a metaphor for the soul. He then promptly devours one.

* Lucifer is played with a chilling, vicious malevolence by Viggo Mortensen in ''Film/TheProphecy''. Here he is an uneasy ally to the protagonists, but he makes it clear that he's [[PragmaticVillainy helping them for entirely self-serving reasons]], not for their benefit. Mortenson actually manages to out-creep Christopher Walken. ''While they share a scene.''

* In ''Film/{{Constantine}}'', Peter Stormare plays the Devil as [[ManOfWealthAndTaste a dapper middle-aged gent in a pristine white suit]]...save for his bare feet and pant cuffs, which are covered in steaming tar. His behavior is more in line with your average child molester than a suave prince of darkness or a roaring demon. In a rather fine example of outbargaining the devil for a favor, [[spoiler:Constantine cuts his wrists and calls the Devil. After some idle chitchat, with the Devil helping John light up a cigarette, Constantine points the Devil to the fact his son and an angel are planning on releasing Satan's son onto earth. This irks the Devil as he feels Earth will be his in time and sends his son back to hell and, with God's blessing, turns the angel to human. The Devil returns to Constantine and offers him some more time as thanks. Instead of that, Constantine asks him to release the soul of the heroine's sister, who was damned for her suicide. The Devil does so easily. As the Devil is about to take him away, Constantine starts getting pulled up into heaven, and the Devil realizes that his "suicide" was really a self-sacrifice as he took no personal gain from the reward given. However, thinking quickly, he decides to use his powers to heal both Constantine's wrists and his cancer, using the logic that he's giving Constantine more time to damn himself again. Whether this works or not is left to the viewer.]]

* In an episode of ''Series/NorthernExposure'', Satan comes to Cicely as a short, wimpy little man played by Charles Martin Smith (Toad from ''AmericanGraffiti''). With the world already in shambles due to war and ethnic cleansing, Satan now amuses himself by tempting good people into making very small concessions of morality. He offers Shelley a more glamorous life if she will only burn her husband's favorite sweater, but she refuses.

* Although he has yet to physically appear in ''ShadowhunterPeril'', there have been several references to his existence in the Infernal Worlds. The first BigBad's last name is "Morgenstern" (which means "Morning Star", one of Lucifer's many names), and his OneWingedAngel form appears to be a subtle ShoutOut to the version of Lucifer depicted as having six wings. By far the biggest references would be Puriel flying into an UnstoppableRage at the mention of Lucifer--he also states once or twice that he has fought in the war in Heaven, which could mean he and Lucifer actually did meet. So far, though, the closest thing SP has to a Satan-like figure is Asmodeous, who is the first son of Lilith, and the only demon to have a fallen angel (Samael) for a father--in fact, [[MotherOfAThousandYoung the only demon to have a father at all.]] He's currently king of the Infernal Worlds, so where that leaves Lucifer in the hierarchy is unknown.

* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2'', [[spoiler:Satan is the TheBigBad who plans to return to Earth to take revenge on Gabriel (now the Dark Lord Dracula) Dracula and Zobek for his defeat in ''Lords Of Shadow''. Zobek convinces Dracula to join forces against Satan and his acolytes (who are Satan's children), though eventually it is revealed that Gabriel conspired with his son Trevor/Alucard to defeat both Zobek and Satan allowing Gabriel to take his revenge on them for their ruining his life and turning them into the Dark Lord. Satan is ultimately summoned to Earth by his final acolyte whom he kills. Satan then summons The Leviathan which he plans to use to destroy the Earth.

However Dracula manages to defeat the Satan possessed Alucard and tricks Satan into fleeing Alucard's body, allowing Gabriel to kill Satan with his old Combat Cross putting an end to the Prince of Darkness.]]
