* ''Two of a Kind'' (the second Creator/JohnTravolta[=/=]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...

Related to Satan is the SatanicArchetype, which is a (usually) original character explicitly modelled after him. They tend to have features such as being the lord of all evil in the world, rebelling against the supreme deity they served or the celestial beings that they were once a part of, or leading some race of demons or other evil creatures. If a series revolves around a polytheistic group of gods and goddesses, usually there will be one GodOfEvil who is [[HijackedByJesus cast as a Satan figure]], complete with TheParagonAlwaysRebels, even if [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis it's completely different from their original portrayal]]. This is usually [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades/Pluto]] in the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greco-Roman pantheon]], Loki in the [[Myth/NorseMythology Norse pantheon]], and Anubis or Set/Sutekh in the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology ancient Egyptian]].

A common twist is that SatanIsGood, a victim of propaganda; see GodIsEvil. Of course, sometimes GodAndSatanAreBothJerks. A common portrayal in Western Media is also to cast Satan as TheAntiGod, as {{God}}'s EvilCounterpart.[[note]]This is actually in contrast to most Christian theology, where Satan is a far lesser in power than God.[[/note]]

[[IHaveManyNames Known also as]] the [[FallenAngel (former) Archangel]] Lucifer ([[LightIsNotGood "light-bearer", Latin translation of the Hebrew word ''heylel'', "brightness"]]), [[{{UsefulNotes/Islam}} Shaytan,]] Iblis, [[UsefulNotes/{{Zoroastrianism}} Angra Mainyu]], LouisCypher, Old Scratch, Old Nick, the Quare Fellow, [[ConsummateLiar the Father of Lies]], [[Music/BlackSabbath the Prince of Darkness]], the Lord of This World, [[Film/ClerksII The First of the Fallen, The Spoiler of Virgins, The Master of Abortions]], Beelzebub (based on the archaic Ba'al Zebub, literally 'Lord of the Flies'), [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} The Really Angry One]], [[{{Faust}} Mephistopheles]], the Morning Star, [[Literature/YoungWizards The Lone Power]], Samael, [[GratuitousSpanish El Diablo]], [[ForTheEvulz the Evil One]], [[WebOriginal/LOLCats Basement Cat]], [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Melkor]], [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Shai'tan]], [[{{Prince}} De-elevator]], [[SdrawkcabAlias Natas]], [[WorldOfWarcraft Sargeras]], [[Music/{{U2}} Mr. MacPhisto]]...or simply [[DealWithTheDevil the Devil]] (or, if you like, [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken the Red Guy]]). Should you encounter [[LouisCypher someone with any of these names]], ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast run away]]''.

Satan's traditional backstory casts him as the greatest angel in {{Heaven}}, who rebelled against {{God}}, and has spent the rest of eternity dwelling in {{Hell}} with an army of demons. By virtue of his once-grand celestial position, Satan is depicted as the king of Hell, even if he's as much a prisoner there as any of the damned.

Another common plot revolves around Satan's son, presumed to be TheAntichrist foretold in the Literature/BookOfRevelation. Some common subversions are that he's [[AntiAntiChrist just a normal person]], or that he's a she.

He's often cast as the BigBad or the GreaterScopeVillain of Christian ReligiousHorror stories.
