** Silene, who would later become something of a BreakoutVillain in no small part due to her memorable design. Go Nagai himself ended up being quite fond of her.

** Ryo Asuka. Who would go on to be one of Nagai's most recognizable and popular characters. Notoriously, [[AdaptedOut he's nowhere to be found in the 1972 anime]], which upset fans at the time (though the producers later stated that they would have liked to include him at some point).

* HarsherInHindsight: In the opening of the original anime, while fighting a giant demon snake, the snake bites the lower half of Devilman's body. [[spoiler:Akira lost the lower half of his body when he died at the end of the story.]]

** In the OVA first episode, Akira looks at Ryo at their first meeting and paused for several seconds until he recognized him. The scene went on so long that it came off {{Narm}} and ridiculously hilarious. This could had been intentional as the manga revealed [[spoiler:all of Ryo's childhood memories had been implanted by Psycho Jenny as Ryo himself is literally Satan in disguise, and Psycho Jenny also modified Akira's memories for this plan to work. Thus, Akira and Ryo never spend time together or even met until that moment]]. Granted the third and final OVA episode was never made, but this would explained the long pause from Akira.

* ValuesResonance: The Manga's themes of War is hell, and its anti discrimination and anti-xenophobia stance, has arguably become even more powerful today, as is Ryo Asuka's Homosexual feelings for Akira.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The two [=OVAs=] are absolutely ''gorgeous'', with some excellent animation quality across the board and some extremely impressive segments of animation, such as Siren and Devilman's fight during the second OVA. It's a shame a third one was never made.

* ValuesDissonance: [[spoiler: Ryo's reasoning for falling in love with Akira because he's a hermaphrodite wouldn't cross well for some, especially LGBT, people today.]] Not surprising since the manga came out in the 70s.

* FridgeBrilliance: In the anime incarnation, Devilman starts suspecting that Miki may be under attack because she's growing weaker and her usually "beautiful incarnate" is growing pale and clammier, with every other human character blaming some mild illness. Since in the 1976 Devilman isn't Akira Fudo anymore, but a powerful superman wearing the looks of a mere human, makes perfect sense: Devilman has no knowledge of human illnesses, as the Demon Tribe is composed by strong, battle-fit specimens, and the very idea of the girl he loves growing ill with no apparent reason is enough to make him restless, worried and confused.
