* Hazama/Terumi Yuuki from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' may also count as a Satan {{Expy}}. One of the revered Six Heroes, he betrayed his team and after being sealed, resurfaced once more to topple Heaven and God and shape the world as he sees fit: Make what he believed to be truth, which is DESPAIR, as the only truth in the world, and the lies of the world (which is everything) to be cut down. And he... ''succeeded'' in toppling 'God' (Takamagahara) by ''Continuum Shift'' and now seeks to do the same to the true God (Amaterasu). And not only he's ObviouslyEvil, he walks around with EyesAlwaysShut, speak like a gentleman in order to lull his unaware 'allies' to [[ManipulativeBastard move like he wills it]], and [[spoiler:if his acts with Litchi was to be believed, one of his modus operandi is driving people to sign on a DealWithTheDevil, the devil in question is HIMSELF.]] And although his [[spoiler:not really]] true name 'Terumi' is safe, [[LouisCypher the nickname 'Hazama' gives the meaning of 'otherworldly']]... and all in all, very similar with how Lucifer meant 'Lightbringer' before he went on to be known as Satan or all those nasty other names.
** Then he gets [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness screwed over]] in ''Chrono Phantasma'' by the true BigBad [[spoiler:Izanami, a literal [[GodIsEvil god]]]], but then taken right back around with the final reveal in ''Central Fiction'' of his true identity: [[spoiler:[[DestroyerDeity Susanoo]] ([[SadlyMythtaken though an interpretation of the Shinto God much like every other deities over there]]) who despised Amaterasu and her works because he got tired of being designated of her enforcer. He is the true master of the Susanoo Unit that Hakumen uses, and when he takes it back upon killing him he transforms into a [[EvilMakeover black armored warrior]] with a SicklyGreenGlow and a whole bunch of [[FangsAreEvil teeth]], able to at last access his [[PhysicalGod full power]] and place as the ''true'' BigBad of the series. It's funny that in context, Susanoo's role here looked more like Lucifer who just took his name, hence this trope]].

names. Taken to it's logical extreme in ''Chrono Phantasma'' by the true BigBad [[spoiler:Izanami, a literal [[GodIsEvil god]]]], but then taken right back around with the final reveal in ''Central Fiction'' of fourth game when [[spoiler: his true identity: [[spoiler:[[DestroyerDeity Susanoo]] ([[SadlyMythtaken though an interpretation of identity is revealed to be Susanoo, the Shinto God much like every other deities over there]]) who despised Amaterasu and her works because he got tired of being designated of her enforcer. He is the true master original will of the Susanoo Unit that Hakumen uses, and initially served the Master Unit, Ameterasu(aka {{God}}) but rebelled when he takes it back upon killing him felt like he transforms into a [[EvilMakeover black armored warrior]] with a SicklyGreenGlow was enslaved to it's will and a whole bunch of [[FangsAreEvil teeth]], able to at last access devoted his [[PhysicalGod full power]] life to destroying the world that Ameterasu created and place as becoming a being that would surpass it and create a world where he is feared and loathed by all.]] In other words, he's quite literally the ''true'' BigBad universe's version of the series.

** Possibly the straightest example in the franchise appears in ''Anime/DragonballSuper''. Zamasu is an extremely talented Kai who's in the process of being promoted to Supreme Kai, having the potential to be the strongest one ever. However, his {{Pride}} causes him to view himself as knowing better than the Gods that are higher on the cosmic hierarchy than he is and having a ''very'' low opinion of humanity. [[spoiler:He also eventually [[FallenAngel falls completely to evil]] at some point in the future and tries to destroy all mortals to make his own definition of a paradise. His future self also shows [[SmugSuper even more pride than his present self]].]]

His first act upon coming into ''existence'' is to give a huge BlasphemousBoast about being the most beautiful and supreme god, and even taking on the [[LightIsNotGood 'angel of light' motif]] often used for the Devil.]]

-->'''Will:''' Hannibal's not God. Wouldn't have any ''fun'' being God. ''Defying'' God, that's his idea of a good time. There's nothing he'd love more than to see this roof collapse mid-Mass, choirs singing...he would just love it, and he thinks God would love it, too.

* Astfgl the Demon King ([[spoiler: later KickedUpstairs to Life President of Hell]]) in ''Discworld/{{Eric}}'' consciously models himself on the archetype to the extent that he looks somewhat ridiculous (he wears a horned cowl like a panto demon, and has a trident, but the end keeps falling off), and is very keen on Faustian bargains, although he usually leaves the details to a subordinate.

His preferred brand of torture is extremely boring bureaucratic procedure like having to hear hundreds of volumes of safety procedures before they'll let you push the boulder up the hill.

** Heavily subverted with Commander Farsight. Looks the part due to his crested red armor. Also played for irony given his motive is to protect his race from actual demons. Only [[spoiler: Shadowsun]] knows his motives are benevolent but she doesn't know the full truth behind his actions (the Eye of Terror being in the direction of the blockade). Farsight ends up being closer to a Dark Knight Trilogy Batman than a true Satan figure.

** [[EvilOverlord Pridak]] of the Barraki bears many similarities with Lucifer specifically. He is described as a "perfect physical specimen" before rebelling against his creator and subsequently being cast into a hellish prison, where he [[KarmicTransformation turned hideous]] and [[{{Revenge}} actively plots his revenge on the universe he still seeks to rule]]. Ironically, [[PredecessorVillain he was the one to inspire]] Makuta Teridax to make his own bid for world domination. [[spoiler:He fails to measure to Teridax in the long run, but he's also the only one of the three still alive by the end]].

* Keisar Ephes from the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' subseries. He was once known as the Psychodriver Augustus that rules the Balmar world wisely, worshipped like a God, but felt left out in the cycle of life and death by [[Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon Ide]] so sought to surpass him by amassing more power by turning the spirit of the dead into his power, becoming more sadistic and tyrannical along the way. His attacks involve summoning the spirits of the dead and giving apocalyptic visions while LaughingMad, and if the victim is drained of HP from it, they get sucked to his Hell.
