* {{Death by Adaptation}}: In the original ''Devilman'', Dosu Roku, Masa and the fat guy with big teeth from Dosu Roku's gang went from being Akira's enemies to his friends and allies, essentially becoming human members of the Devilman Army. While the fat guy's ultimate fate is unknown, [[spoiler: Masa was killed trying to save Miki and Tare from the lynch mob while Dosu Roku played a major part in the ''AMON'' manga]]. In ''Devilman Grimoire'', [[spoiler:Dosu Roku and the fat guy are unceremoniously eaten alive by a demon in the first chapter, while Masa lasts until the second chapter, where his head is bitten off by Silene]]. This establishes the fact that Grimoire is not just a retelling of the original story but is a whole new continuity, with the ultimate fates of the main characters up in the air.

To promote the final [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] Apocalypse of Devilman in 1999, Go Nagai resurrected the manga in two forms; one is a collection of short stories entitled '''''Neo-Devilman''''' where he and many other writers/artists (17 to be precise) contribute to the Devilman mythos with their own spin-offs and visions for the original tale, the other is where Nagai teamed up with Yuu Kinutani to create a 6 Volume manga simply called '''''AMON''''', which is centered around and expanding the events between humanity's persecution of demon/human hybrids in anticipation of the final battle between Devilman and Satan. Go Nagai scripts and Yuu Kinutani provides pencils with high detailed art. In 2005 they two teamed up again to create '''''Strange Days''''', a single manga volume centered around a group of Devilmen, Kira and Ryuu, clashing at Devilman vs. Satan's final battle; it tells their story of how their rivalry came to be during the persecution against Devilmen.

A new Devilman manga, ''Devilman Grimoire'', began running in Champion Red magazine on 19 April 2012. It is written by Go Nagai and illustrated by Rui Takato. A {{Rebooot}} of the original manga, it starred Akira Fudo and Miki Makimura, who believes herself to be a witch. It features many characters from the original Devilman. It remains to be seen whether this series is connected to previous series of the Devilman universe (''Devilman'', ''Violence Jack'', ''Devilman Lady'' and ''Shin Violence Jack''), or whether it is set in an alternate universe.
