** Don't forget Mordac, summoning the [[MillenniumBug Y2K]] Demon. In fact, Mordac even sounds like the name of a demon.

** A vainglorious, megalomaniacal man, long since dead, sent down to hell and twisted into the shape of a common dog. He can still speak and think rationally, and he must forever live with the knowledge that he is no longer even a man - only a domesticated animal, constantly subservient to humans. He aspires to rule Hell, but must always give up power when it is reach, as part of his punishment.
*** More likely, Dogbert is LikeABadassOutOfHell. In the comic strips, it's stated that he has actually taken over the world at least once, but then stopped because VictoryIsBoring. Dogbert simply lives in Hell because, to him, it's a challenge, and that is what makes it fun for him.
* There ''was'' a storyline, very early on, where Dilbert was killed by Mother Nature as an example; demonic stuff and hellish work conditions didn't show up until afterwards. Presumably, his "revival" shown on-panel was actually his arrival in Hell.

** There is a story arc where Alice gets fired. One of the strips is devoted to Wally naturally bullying her about this. The last panel is Wally telling Dilbert "If she offers you a goodbye hug, don't take it." Sure, the hug was probably meant to crush his ribcage - and he ''has'' been squashed so badly even his arms are deformed - but the fact remains that he accepted that goodbye hug.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: [[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment Alternatively alternatively]], the Garbage Man is a [[TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent Demon]].]]
He claims to know "shortcuts" in reality, has vaguely strange mannerisms, possesses extremely sophisticated technical knowledge, and fairly routinely performs impossible feats. Maybe Dilbert's company is some kind of Infrastructure, and Dilbert's continued sanity and competence is the only thing preventing it from functioning, hence the useful advice. With the Dupeys, he was just dicking around, because hey, even robot demons need a laugh.

** {{Jossed}}. Scott Adams claims that Dilbert's tie is turned upwards from stress resulting from [[SomethingElseRises pent-up sexual frustration]], and the only way it will go back to normal is if he gets laid.

* Another possibility is that his necktie is a symbol of his arousal. There are at least two times when Dilbert is drawn with his necktie flat. Once is when he "discovered religion" (which was meant as a secret symbol, according to the Dilbert Newsletter, that Dilbert had "gotten lucky" with then-girlfriend Liz.) The second time is when Antina bragged about taking the copy machine apart for fun.
