* ''Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes'': Koba has a very Luciferian feeling to his character. He is initially Caesar's best friend who is utterly loyal to him, but he becomes corrupted by his desire for revenge against humanity, leading him to betray and turn on Caesar leading the apes into a path of war. Even after his death, Caesar hallucinates him twice in the sequel saying "Sleep You cannot save them. Join me" when tied to a post at the Alpha Omega camp, invoking the imagery of Satan tempting Jesus on the Cross. A number of his scenes in Dawn also have fire in them, either behind him blazing or up close, and fire is a significant element of Hell.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'': Kefka Palazzo is a MonsterClown who hates all of existence and claws his way up to godlike power. His laughing mockery of goodness, mercy, hope and love really drives the devil point home. The similarity was further alluded to with the SNES translation for one of his attacks, Fallen One. Additionally, the three stages of his Statue of the Gods first place him in the role of Satan as he appears in ''Literature/DantesInferno'', before having him sequentially mock both Purgatory and Michelangelo's Pietà and at last appearing in his final angelic form.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has Savitar, an ancient and extremely powerful speedster that [[LightIsNotGood always wears shining armor and uniquely leaves a trail of white lightning whenever he runs.]] He promises potential followers superhuman powers in exchange for their service, leaving them to torment the people of Central City and Team Flash.. He also turns out to be a FallenHero, [[spoiler: since he's a potential future self of Barry Allen.]]

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has Zorc Necrophades, who is the equivalent of the setting and the ancient evil Yami Yugi, [[spoiler:also known as Pharoah Atem]], fought in the past. He is an ancient EldritchAbomination GodOfEvil whose power created the Millenium Items and, in the anime, he also created and rules the [[{{Hell}} Shadow Realm]]. He appears as a titanic, dark-purple demon [[GagPenis with a rather unfortunately-placed dragon head between his legs]] and [[GoodWingsEvilWings two large, demonic wings]]. [[spoiler:He is also Yami Bakura.]]

* Nyarlathotep from [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft's]] Cthulhu Mythos is more or less Satan. A [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifter]], sometimes humanoid (as the Black Pharaoh in ''Nyarlathotep''), sometimes a hideous EldritchAbomination (as The Haunter of the Dark in the story of the same name), and a diabolical pact-maker (to Keziah Mason in The Dreams in the Witch House), trickster (to [[spoiler:Randolph Carter]] in The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath). Although he acts as TheDragon for Azathoth, Nyarlathotep can be seen as a physical manifestation of the will of the Outer Gods (Yog-Sothoth and Azathoth), and is referred to as their "soul and messenger" more than once, which means the Outer Gods are colossal bastards. He's also the only one of them with a human mindset, and has active interest in humanity. [[TheSociopath This isn't a good thing. AT ALL.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' has Ego. Meredith's description of Ego as an "angel, composed out of pure light" is evocative of Lucifer (whose name literally means "light bringer"), he's charismatic, manipulative, and narcissistic, acts as a corrupter to Peter and Yondu by preying on their vulnerabilities, and, despite all appearances, is ultimately an incredibly selfish and evil being willing to destroy innumerable lives for his own gain.

* Palpatine, the BigBad of ''Franchise/StarWars'', has many Satanic traits, and WordOfGod confirms Satan to be the primary inspiration for the character ([[TakeThat along with]] UsefulNotes/RichardNixon). He's a ConsummateLiar and WickedCultured ManOfWealthAndTaste who deceives numerous genuinely good people into following him in a scheme that ultimately ends with him gaining control of the government to usher in (what he claims will be) a utopia (admittedly, that last part is more TheAntichrist's area of expertise, but we all know who ''that'' guy reports to). In addition, the order he gives to wipe out all with the power to oppose him? Order [[NumberOfTheBeast 66]]. And that's just the stuff from the movies; the occasional ExpandedUniverse source has even gone so far as to imply that he's literally MadeOfEvil. Ian [=McDiarmid=], the actor who plays Palpatine, at one point claimed that Palpatine is actually ''more'' evil than the devil. He points out: "At least Satan fell; he has a history, and it's one of revenge."

** 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 a force of nature like an earthquake or a flood.]]
