* Lord Golgotha in ''ComicBook/{{Reborn}}'' is the ruler of the Dark Lands, the evil half of the afterlife where all the wicked souls are sent upon dying. He has a outright demonic appearance except he has grey skin instead of red, and he was prophesied as his people's DarkMessiah that would lead them into conquering the world of the living in their twisted, dark forms.

** Fleet Admiral Sakazuki, a. k. a. Akainu "Red Dog", has no horns or wings, but with his blood-red suit and powers of [[MagmaMan molten lava]] he certainly [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/HmMVJRPQYG0/maxresdefault.jpg fits the bill]] better than most. Akaniu is a true GeneralRipper, destroys all that gets in his path, and won't tolerate Pirates breathing in his vicinity. Add massacring deserters to that and you've got one hellish douchebag.



%%** The original series has Kyubey in the Faustian tempter form.

* Apollyon from the ''Literature/MaradoniaSaga'' is supposed to be this. He's an {{Expy}} of {{Satan}} in terms of backstory and motifs. Unintentionally {{Subverted}}, given 1) Apollyon is [[AffablyEvil fairly likable]], frequently singing "Mother Earth Songs" and extolling the values of friendship, love, and kindness and 2) He's opposing the books' [[VillainProtagonist protagonists]], [[ItsAllAboutMe Maya]] and [[TheSociopath Joey]].

* Tlacolotl from ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' games is a ManipulativeBastard and tempter who stirs up conflict between the rest of the pantheon, starts wars, runs an endless shell game of [[ScamReligion cults]] to keep mortals chasing after his fleeting favor, and launches into WhatIsEvil lectures whenever confronted about any of it. He's not the only greater evil in the setting, but the others are all [[Eldritch Abomination Eldritch Abominations]] with an understanding of human psychology that is too limited for a tempter's role.

** The Daedric Prince of Rape and Domination, Molag Bal. While most of the Daedric Princes are JerkassGods who have BlueAndOrangeMorality when compared to mortals and display a mix of positive and negative qualities; Molag stands out as the Prince who has most consistently been portrayed as unquestionably evil and lacking redeeming traits. He claims domination and enslavement as his spheres of influence, and spends most of his time [[TheCorrupter tempting mortals into wickedness]] so they will spread strife through the world in his name, then claiming their souls after death. While in most games you see him only in shrines, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' he looks like this [[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/File:Molag_Bal.gif ab big,green devil]], while in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline TES Online]]'' [[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/File:ON-creature-Molag_Bal.jpg he looks like this.]]
** Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of Destruction, actually [[DownplayedTrope downplays]] it. Despite his BigRedDevil appearance, LegionsOfHell style servants, FireAndBrimstoneHell plane of Oblivion, and being the record holder in the series for most attempts to TakeOverTheWorld (so he can then [[OmnicidalManiac destroy it]]), Dagon actually has some redeeming qualities, unlike Molag Bal. While destruction is his modus operandi, his sphere also includes concepts like [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]], change, and revolution[[note]]which is in contrast to the "unlawful overthrow of authority" that fits within Boethiah's sphere[[/note]] that a functioning world requires to operate. Essentially, he can be thought of as [[AboveGoodAndEvil no more "evil" than an earthquake or a flood.]]
** Lorkhan, the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] of the Mundus (mortal realm), is this, but only in the religions of the races of Mer (elves), primarily the old Aldmer and current Altmer. Their religious beliefs state that, before the creation of the mortal world, they were all immortal spirits in the pre-creation universe. Creation was then a malevolent act which robbed them of their divinity and forced them into [[GodInHumanForm "a mortal prison"]], where they experience death and suffering. The other spirits who he "tricked" into aiding him in creation lost their CompleteImmortality and "killed" him as punishment, tearing out his "heart" (divine center) and casting it down into the world he created. However, he's seen by most of the races of Men as their patron deity and is [[HumansAreSpecial known to favor them]], especially through his [[GodInHumanForm mortal incarnations]], like EternalHero Pelinal Whitestrake or Wulfharth Ash-King, who often directly resulted strengthening the presence of men at the cost of elves who oppressed them.

** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Dagoth Ur is this to the Tribunal Temple and the Ashlanders. He was [[TheRashomon in some way]] involved with the death of the legendary Dunmeri hero, Saint Nerevar, and went against the wishes of Nerevar and his Daedric patron, Azura, to tap into the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]] to [[DeityOfHumanOrigin ascend to godhood]]. As one learns throughout the main quest of the game, the truth (or at least [[TheUnreveal what isn't known to be false]]) is [[HiddenDepths a bit more]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist complex]] than that...

** [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Griffith]] is the clear devil figure, and fits the "Fallen Angel" criteria nicely. Like how Bible claims Lucifer can appear as a "an angel of light", Griffith is angelical, gentle and beautiful but only to hide the [[LightIsEvil pure malevolence underneath]]. As Griffith is actually a megalomaniac, back stabbing, bisexual rapist who sacrifices all his friends to ascend (descend) as the final "angel" of [[GodofEvil The God Hand]] aka [[https://ttotblog.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/tumblr_n0lhcy0mgf1rtuqolo1_500.gif?w=994 becoming a scary winged bat creature]]. And the worst part is afterwards where despite all the vile evil he has done [[spoiler: especially to Guts and Casca]], Griffith is welcomed back to to the mortal plane as the [[DarkMessiah Messiah]] with only a handful of people knowing his true nature.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'''s [[BigBad Nicol]] [[MultiversalConqueror Bolas]]. Starting by the fact that ''[[LouisCypher his own name]]'' is reportedly a German term for the Old Scratch and he [[DragonsAreDemonic is a dragon designed to resemble a demon]], but it goes so much deeper than that. An impossibly old evil member of a host of god-like beings, of which he stood out amidst, he is a designated liar and manipulator as well as an outright [[TheCorrupter corrupter]] who can't resist being worshiped as a god if he can help it. He is thoroughly associated with the most stereotypically evil color association with [[MindRape all]] [[DarkIsEvil that]] [[EvilIsBurningHot entails]],[[note]]and ironically once slaughtered by [[DarkIsNotEvil a benevolent spin]] of that combination[[/note]], and is ''Magic's'' quintessential force of evil.

** Demise from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' is literally the GodOfEvil and is just a "Demon", not even given a fancy made-up name like the rest of the creatures in Hyrule. Demise seeks nothing but destruction and, after being sealed away by [[DivineDate Hylia]], is naturally pissed. When released by Ghirahim, Demise wastes no time fighting Link to the death. However, when he is impaled by the Master Sword, Demise is literally spitting blood over it and curses Link and Zelda that his hatred (Ganon) will [[{{Reincarnation}} follow]] them forever, making him the ultimate SoreLoser.

** Count Lucifer from the second Dragon Ball movie is unashamedly meant to be Satan and doesn't just share his name; DB's Lucifer has vampiristic tendencies as he plans to drink Bulma dry at his victory banquet. Lucifer's ultimate goal is to use the [[PowerCrystal Sleeping Princes (a powerful jewel)]] to blow up the sun so there can be [[TheNightThatNeverEnds infinite night]] for all demon-kind. Lucifer can fight off kid Goku with ease, and is only destroyed when Goku redirects the sun-destroying cannon with his own [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] so that the cannon vaporizes Lucifer instead.

** Dabura is heavily based on Satan, being the ruler of a demon world and otherwise looking demonic. He is incredibly powerful, and faces off against Goku's son Gohan, which is fitting since Gohan plays the MessianicArchetype for much of the series. Despite his Demon King status Dabura is still bound to the smaller-of-stature Babidi, though he seems very willing to help the evil wizard's goals. When he was killed by Buu, King Yemma was faced with a hard decision, since sending Dabura to {{Hell}} would be exactly what Dabura wants. On a whim, he sent Dabura to {{Heaven}}m which Dabura would hate, meaning it was a better punishment, but hilariously being in Heaven completely reforms Dabura to an [[https://media.giphy.com/media/CPQTUwlJbXpcY/giphy.gif extreme degree]]. Dabura also appears in ''Sand Land'' as [[{{Expy}} Lucifer]], the father of the main protagonist.
