* In the MarvelComics, the Hell Lords is a group of demons composed of Asmodeus, Hela, Mephisto, Pluto, Satannish The Supreme, and Satana. Former members of the group included Beelzeboul, Dormammu, Hellstrom, Lucifer/Satan, Marduk Kurios, Olivier, Thog the Nether-Spawn, and Umar the Unrelenting. Yes. Satan himself used to be a member of a group of demons who represent all the aspects of Satan. Somehow. Many have admitted to either inspiring, playing off the name, or claiming to be the REAL Satan. Thanks to [[ContinuitySnarl inconsistent continuity]] and their own history as liars nothing they say can be believed. This was further complicated with the introduction of the real Lucifer- Who is very specifically the ''Satan of the Christian religion'' in the Marvel universe. A tie-in to the Fear Itself crossover introduced Satan's empty throne, but was unclear if there was a real Satan and if so who it was(Though when we saw God's throne in Ghost Rider: Heaven's on Fire, it was also empty). Only to have several hell-lords claim to be Satan, but none sit in it for fear of being torn apart by the other hell-lords.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise, Arceus is confirmed to be the creator- the god- of all Pokemon. Giratina comes closest to the role of Satan on a cosmic level: it's a literal god/EldritchAbomination that was banished for its aggressive tendencies (in particular, [[ThePerfectionist its obsession]] with [[OrderVsChaos balance]]) by what is implied to be the aforementioned Arceus. While [[SatanIsGood not evil]] (it prevents [[OmnicidalManiac Cyrus]] from achieving [[AGodAmI An Arceus Am I]]), it's a fearsome opponent that has the potential of threatening the world whenever it believes that reality is in danger.

* Believe it or not, both Ho-oh and Uxie of ''Fanfic/PokeWars'' fit this trope.
** Ho-oh is a great and noble angelic being of light who's {{Pride}} makes him rebel against God's chosen plan in favor of his own vision and he makes other Legendaries/Angels join him by preying on their hidden desires and his fall to evil causes him to lose sight of what he originally fought for turning him into an angry, spiteful, and petty creature of darkness, [[spoiler: that gets trapped inside the Pokemon version of Hell, the Reverse World.]]
** Uxie is a monster that is sealed away and is released during an apocalyptic scenario who then proceeds to manipulate events from behind the scenes to his benefit, he is a creature that looks like a creature of good and light disguising his evil intent, he believes that he can make the universe superior to God's attempt, and he plans on making mockeries/clones of His creations to act as his army.

* ''VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream'': AM gets this treatment, moreso than in [[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream the original book]]. He is an omnipotent being who uses his power to unleash violence and death upon the world. His greatest source of amusement is [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing the five survivors]] [[WhoWantsToLiveForever for all eternity]]. And the game involves him tempting his victims into giving into their worst instincts. It is more apparent in [[ItsAllAboutMe Ted's]] scenario, where he creates a literal demon and devil, who both attempt to push Ted into trading his love interest's soul in exchange for being let out of AM.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': A FallenHero from one of [[{{God}} Mata Nui's]] elite soldiers, [[GreenEyedMonster grew envious of Mata Nui]], [[HijackingCthulhu wants to supplant him]] [[{{Pride}} and believes himself capable of doing so]], [[MagnificentBastard an absolute master of manipulation]]... yep, [[BigBad Makuta Teridax]] fits the bill.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': There are three of them, and [[EvilVsEvil all of them have fought each other at some point]] to [[EvilerThanThou show who's higher on the pecking order]].

[[spoiler:Ultimately succeeded in toppling God and taking his power, but died in the final battle with Mata Nui [[HoistByHisOwnPetard because of his own overconfidence and actions]]]].
** Karzahni bears many allusions to the Devil. He is a nigh-mythological figure in Matoran legend who rules over [[{{Hell}} the equivalent of Bionicle hell]] meant for workers who didn't try hard enough at their jobs and never returned, in contrast to his [[CainAndAbel brother]] [[UltimateBlacksmith Artakha]]. Reality is that it was his duty to "repair" them. Unfortunately, he wasn't very good at his job, went a little insane, and started imprisoning them in his realm. As for appearances, he is a HornedHumanoid that uses [[{{Hellfire}} flaming]] [[ChainPain chains]] and whose powers allow him to [[MindRape torture his victims with their worst nightmares]] [[WhatIf of alternate futures]]. [[spoiler:[[EvilerThanThou Put in his place by Teridax]], [[HumiliationConga driven insane, beaten by an old enemy with a grudge, and finally unceremoniously killed]]]].
** [[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]].
