Holden is hinted to be a humanoid abomination bent on corrupting the world (war is God, anyone?) in any way he can. Which is Nyarlatothtep’s description in a nutshell. He is charismatic, articulate, impossibly knowledgeable, and his whole persona has a quasi-religious aspect. As far back as his debut in HPL’s stories, the Black Pharaoh (himself something of a Satan substitute) was all of these things. Add to that the whole God With a Thousand Faces thing and you at least have something to think about, The Judge as yet another guise.

He expounds on the power of science and reason much as Nyarlathotep did in Lovecraft's original story, and acts like the prophet of some twisted new faith. He is incredibly charismatic, and can bring people around to his way of thinking with his rhetorical skills. He regularly does the impossible, whether it be making gun powder from the resources he finds on a mountainside or apparent feats of teleportation. His unusual appearance suggests [[HumanoidAbomination something not entirely (or not even remotely) human]] which fits with most of the Black Pharaoh's many forms. Additionally, his utter depravity and desire to corrupt, control, or destroy everyone around him fits with Nyarlathotep's general character. He doesn't age, he doesn't sleep, he says he will never die...

Also, the “he never sleeps,
he says he will never die...

die” bit reads a lot like something you’d find in a Cthulhu Mythos story.

He expounds on the power of science and reason and generally acts like the prophet of some twisted new faith. He regularly does the impossible, whether it be making gun powder from the resources he finds on a mountainside or pulling feats of bi-location. His unusual appearance suggests [[HumanoidAbomination something not entirely (or not even remotely) huaman]] which fits with most of the Black Pharaoh's many forms. Additionally, his utter depravity and desire to corrupt, control, or destroy everyone around him fits with Nyarlathotep's tastes and general methodology.

On a rather disturbing side note, if this is the same Nyarlathotep as [[LightNovel/Haiyore!NyarkoSan! Nyarko]], it may explain her attraction to Mahiro.

If one is of the belief that the Judge is truly preternatural, then its not difficult to view him has being the dark enmity himself. In addition to his impossibly large knowledge of the world and his powers of teleportation and agelessness, the Judge encourages others to commit evil acts and act in heinous ways. His misanthropic views on humanity and war also support this. Finally, who's the one gang member besides the Kid that the Judge is most frequently at odds with? The priest, [[TokenReligiousTeammate Tobin]].
