* A important chunck of backstory for all ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' games was once that the Underworld's armies of Demons, Ogres and other such nasties invaded Earth, who were aided by Heaven's armies in the titular "Ogre Battle". The Underworld lost, but parts of the legions can still be summoned by humans. They are often very important plot point, like in ''VideoGame/OgreBattleMarchOfTheBlackQueen'', where [[BigBad Rashidi]] contacts a General of said Legion, [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Galf]] or in ''Videogame/OgreBattle64'' is a bunch of Ogres being summoned by [[spoiler: The Holy Lodis Empire]]. However, in battle, you can persuade some of them to join you!

Literature/TheQuran mentions this tropes in Surah 96 (Al-'Alaq) in a BadassBoast from Allah.

to:

\n* Medieval grimoires (books detailing magical theories and practices) that addressed various demon lords often discussed how many legions of demons each one commanded in the service of Satan, under the assumption that, like the culture the writers were familiar with, Hell was organized along feudal lines. An example from the Psuedomonarchia Daemonum (The False Kingdom of the Demons), 1577:
--> Andras is a great marquesse, and seemes in an angels shape with a head like a blacke night raven, riding upon a blacke and a verie strong woolfe, flourishing with a sharpe sword in his hand, he can kill the maister, the servant, and all assistants, he is author of discords, and ruleth thirtie legions.

*** The current canon is that demons feel free to style themselves as "Satan" or whatever name a culture gives to the Ultimate Evil, but any demon who tries to make that claim ''to other demons'' (by claiming the Throne that exists in a dimension various heads of pantheons and dimension lords use as a meeting place) would be set upon by his/her/its peers and destroyed, since allowing anyone to get away with making the claim would be seen as placing themselves beneath the claimant.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has a bunch of varieties depending on what plane you're looking at. Hell has devils and asuras, Abaddon has daemons and divs, the Abyss has demons, qlippoth, and demodands, the Astral plane has sahkils, the Shadow Plane has kytons, the Material Plane has rakshasas and oni, and dorvae just sort of wander. All of them are different, though the differences become more hair-splittingly specific with some of them, and all of them are bad news for mortals.

Added DiffLines:

*''TabletopGame/{{Iron Kingdoms}}'' has the Grymkin who are an army from the areas of Urcaen not controlled by any god and is considered as Hell in the Iron Kingdoms. They are led by the Defiers demigod-like beings that can warp reality to a limited extent and the souls of sinners turned to monsters that represent their sins from various legends as well as 'Nightmares' which are warbeasts created by them. They are not exactly evil as they come to punish the wicked and indirectly save the world from the Infernals but are described as a poison that will hopefully remove the parasites(Infernalists) before killing the patient(The world).
** The Infernals is also mentioned to be quite similar although they are yet to invade Caen in large numbers. They create contracts with Humans and give them various powers and abilities in return for souls. The souls are used to create demonic monsters to fight their wars in their own realm or collect souls marked for them. If a person's soul is sold to infernals then he cannot entire the afterlife as Gods hate the Infernals and have closed Urcaen completely to them and and souls with their mark.

* The Ing of ''MetroidPrime 2'' are made reminiscent of this. They are just transdimensional beings though. They [[DemonicPossession possess]] creatures and even come from Dark Aether, a dimension that kills any "light creature" (anything that is not Ing) almost insantly.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this applies to any [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] who, for whatever reason, attempts to invade Mundus (the mortal realm) with their [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] servants. The purest example is Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]], and his Dremora servants, a ProudWarriorRace with a very [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver demonic aesthetic]] who serve him in a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Lawful Evil]] way. Dagon has repeatedly attempted to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over Mundus]] in this fashion, most famously in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', but has yet to actually succeed.
