* ''Series/PennyDreadful'' has [[HauntedHeroine Vanessa Ives]] plagued by a "demon" that eventually identifies itself as Satan, and always appears in the form of a human she knows, usually doing an excellent job of pretending to be that human and having a decent conversation with her until it decides it's time to bring out the BlackEyesOfEvil.
** Season 2 gives us a major reveal about this version; [[spoiler: when Lucifer rebelled, God split him in half, and sent one half to Earth to feed on blood (the as-yet-unnamed Dracula), and the other down to Hell to feed on the souls of the damned (Satan), and Satan needs Vanessa, the "mother of evil", to submit to him to bring about the apocalypse]].
** 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]].

* In ''For Love of Evil'', the sixth book of Piers Anthony's ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, a priest named Parry becomes Satan. However, he's something of a PunchClockVillain, choosing to ''manage'' Evil rather than ''embody'' it. This is just fine with the other Incarnations, and we eventually find out why.

* In ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'', Lord Maledict is the titular Devil. Ruler of the [[TheEmpire Demon Empire]], he's also the maker of the Chaos Emeralds, and helped create the entire universe. He also is the one who [[spoiler: created Sonic the Hedgehog]].

He also is the one who [[spoiler: And he also [[LukeIAmYourFather created Sonic the Hedgehog]]. Hedgehog]]]]. Uniquely for the setting, Maledict is portrayed as far stronger than Jesus [[CurbStompBattle as he proves in Episode 75]] - while Jesus is simply a powerful (but technically mortal) Angel, Maledict is literally divine.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/JohannesCabalTheNecromancer'' Satan is presented more or less as the Biblical version-though he's a point in his immortal life where he's become jaded, bored and slightly snarky. He makes a wager with the titular character just to be entertained and doesn't much care to win or lose-but he does still have a bit of a temper.
** In ''Literature/JohannesCabalAndTheFearInstitute'', the third book in the series, it is implied though not totally confirmed that Satan may be an aspect of [[spoiler: Nyarlathotep.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Lucifer's mentioned in ''Film/{{Dogma}}'', but he isn't responsible for sending Bartleby and Loki on their quest- after all, if they succeeded, he'd also be wiped out of existence; hence, Metatron dismisses Rufus' idea that this was his plot. It turns out another fallen angel, Azrael, is behind it all.

** Although not a Satan [[http://www.akirat.com/ura_f/devilman_f/images_devil/tera-07images/tera-07.jpg Zenon]] has a similar look to The Divine Comedy Version, being a demon with 3 faces, and in The Devil Lady Manga [[spoiler:he is trapped in the Ninth Circle of Hell just like the DivineComedy's Satan]] He also has a form that looks like [[spoiler:The Dragon of Revelation]]

* Several characters in TheDCU are a good match for Mr. S. There's Neron, who ruled Hell for a while and, as the main villain of the CrisisCrossover ''Underworld Unleashed'' bought the souls of many supervillains, as well as killing [[TheFlash the Rogues]] and [[{{Superman}} Mongul]] [[TheWorfEffect to show how cool he is]]; Lord Satanus, who began as a human sorcerer yet grew powerful enough to kick Neron out; and his sister Blaze, who kicked ''him'' out in return. The most likely candidate to be the real deal is The Original Darkness, an EldritchAbomination encountered by Comicbook/SwampThing, whose mere presence can kill several powerful sorcerers and whose ''fingernail'' couldn't be cracked by ComicBook/TheSpectre. Finally, in the New 52 Lucifer appears as a villain in ComicBook/DemonKnights. In ''Batman RIP'' numerous characters imply or outright state that Simon Hurt is the Devil. Batman himself wonders this at the end. It is ultimately revealed that he [[spoiler:is not]].

* ''ComicStrip/AngusOg'': The Devil shows up in many incarnations throughout the run of the strip, but usually defaults to the classic goat-legged, horns, goatee, and pitchfork motif. He regularly tangled with protagonist Angus either attempting to snare his soul or with one of Angus' schemes causing havoc with one of his own, such as when Angus accidentally created giant demonic midges (a type of swarming biting black fly) which then got dumped in hell right on top of the Devil himself.
