* ActionGirl: Miki but only in the original manga, where she borders on being a Sukeban. She's downgraded to more of a {{neutral female}}. In contrast Miko becomes a bit of a demon hunter in the third OVA and is something of a right-hand-lady to Akira.
** Miki is also this in ''Devilman Grimoire'', where she is shown [[http://mangafox.me/manga/devilman_grimoire/v01/c001/16.html punching out Himura]] after he and Dosu Roku's gang accost her and Akira. Afterwards she brags about it while having dinner with Akira and her family. And now, after 40 years, [[spoiler: Miki has finally become a Devilman herself.]]



* BigBadFriend: [[spoiler:Ryo to Akira.]]



* {{Chickification}}: Miki in just about everywhere else outside the original manga, the first [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVAs]] and ''Devilman Grimoire'', originally she pushed Akira into becoming more active and insisting that he fought back against people who bullied him, eventually she liked Akira even more when he became more aggressive in his Devilman days; other adaptations, like the Anime and the final [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]], likes to portray Miki in a more pure light, she is not shown to be amused by Akira being aggressive and certainly does not encourage him to fight anyone; even in ''AMON'' where she retains her original personality, the aggressive part is still gone.



* DecoyProtagonist: Akira in the ''AMON'' manga, he only stars for about half the first volume and later only appears during flashbacks, his body is completely taken over by Amon who stars the series from start to finish, but with a slight twist that in this version he isn't that different from Akira's Devilman persona itself.



* TheDragon: Hell General Zenon to [[spoiler: Satan]]



* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: Satan--but after it's far too late to do anything about it.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: The demon Kaim sacrifices his body & life to his beloved Silen so she can have the honor of killing Devilman.



* HorrifyingHero: Devilman.



* NobleDemon: Prime example would have to be Kaim, who's more than willing to [[spoiler: tear off his own head and offer to [[CombiningMecha merge with the dying Siren]] for one last desperation attack against Devilman]].



* PluckyGirl: Miki Makimura, to the point that [[ActionGirl you can play as her in the NES game]], and even have to defeat a mini-boss while using her. [[spoiler: Which makes [[StuffedIntoTheFridge her horrendous death by]] ''[[{{Gorn}} stabbing and dismembering]]'' ''even more'' tear jerking]]

* {{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.

* SureLetsGoWithThat: When one of the mob calls Miki a witch, in the heat of the moment, she's gloats that she is a witch and warns them not to underestimate her. But as the mob begins to surround her, she says she's ''not'' a witch.

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.
