- Badass In Charge: Everyone of them, but the most notable one is Sirzechs.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sirzechs (Choleric), Serafall (Sanguine), Ajuka (Melancholic), and Falbium (Phlegmatic).
- Large Ham: When acting as the Satan Rangers but especially Sirzechs and Serafall.
- Paper-Thin Disguise/Master of Disguise: Issei's not fooled with how all five of them are acting as the Satan Rangers, so he's the former. Rias genuinely doesn't know that those five are her brother, her sister-in-law, and the other three lords of Hell.
- Satan: Its only in Title since they are not the original Satans.
- Super Sentai: It's as hilarious as one can think of.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The original four Great Satans died in the Great War along with God, the four current Satans are just their replacements.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: All four plus Grayfia in a Sentai suit shot down an evil spirit. It tore the the entire sky and ripped open a new dimension.
Sirzechs Lucifer (Gremory)
- Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese) and Alex Organ (English)
- The Ace: Back in the day.
- All-Encompassing Mantle: When he appears in the anime. Guy's got style.
- Badass: Even for an ultimate devil, Sirzechs apparently is so special because he's one of the supposedly three super devils that exist in this world.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The boke to Grafyia's tsukkomi.
- Cassandra Truth: "Actually, she's (Grayfia) my wife." Grayfia then tells people that she's the head maid of the Gremory household. Yes, they're both married.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Considering he's the one who made the suggestion to Issei to use "Gift" on Rias' breasts...
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Any of his fights, including the one with Issei. And he wasn't even taking it seriously!
- Dating Catwoman: Back in the day, him and Grayfia were enemies because he was from the new generation devils and Grayfia was a servant of the original Lucifer.
- Eldritch Abomination: What the true form of his Power of Destruction looks like. This was enough to scare Hades, the god of the dead.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom
- Gone Horribly Right: In the same case as the Hoist by His Own Petard example below, Sirzechs originally championed the Oppai Dragon series to bring a source of hope and inspiration to the children of the Underworld. The fact that his son prefers Oppai Dragon to Satan Red, ie Ise over his own father, depresses him greatly.
- Happily Married: To Grayfia.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Played for Laughs when he asked his son which one he prefers: Satan Red or Breast Dragon. His son prefers the Breast Dragon. The hoist part? He was the one who pushed for that series in the first place.
- Inexplicably Identical Individuals: Really looks like a male version of Rias. Of course, that's where the similarity ends.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy
- Nice Guy: He's quite mellow, to say the least.

- The Rival: According to Serafall, him and Ajuka were rivals back in the day to the point they even competed for the title of Lucifer.

- Switching P.O.V.: The light novel only shows us the conversation between Lord Phenex and Lord Gremory after Issei defeats Raiser while Sirzechs went away. In the anime, it shows his and Grayfia's perspective on the reason why he handed out the griffon to Issei and his thoughts on the Welsh Dragon joining the devil faction.
- Tranquil Fury: You do NOT want to piss this guy off at all.
Serafall Leviathan (Sitri)
- Voiced by: Ai Shimizu (Japanese) and Stephica Nishalencia (English)

Ajuka Beelzebub (Astaroth)The Genius who laid the foundations of the Rating Game and Evil Piece systems. Also likes to give out a mysterious feeling because it's cool.
- Badass: You really do not want to mess with him if you value your life. Same case with Sirzechs, he's considered a super devil.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He can curb stomp an army while sitting down in his chair.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Sirzechs.
- Mad Scientist: Created the Evil Pieces system, and modifies it For the Lulz.
- Mistaken for Terrorist: He's accused of being one of the terrorists in Volume 6 despite the fact that he was also attacked. Might have something to do with one of the members of his former house working for the Khaos Brigade.
- The Rival: According to Serafall, him and Sirzechs were rivals back in the day.
Falbium Glasya-Labolas (Asmodeus)Considered as the military genius but hardly does any work and just passes his work to either his servants or to other people.

- Braids of Action
- Cain and Abel: She's the older Abel while her younger brother Euclid is the younger Cain.
- Cool Big Sis: To Rias, the stern type.
- The Comically Serious: Anytime she starts to appear, there will be hilarity. Must be why Issei defers to her greatly.

- Game Face: When a gigantic Issei tells her that he's got a plan but needs her and the entire servants of Sirzechs' help, she puts this face on.
- Gray Eyes
- Happily Married: To Sirzechs.
- In Vino Veritas: In the Hot Springs short story, it is revealed her personality switches under the influence of alcohol.
- Lady of War
- Meaningful Name: Her last name, Lucifuge, is taken from Lucifuge Rofocale, a demon who is Lucifer's right-hand man. Given her family history of serving the original Lucifer and her service to Sirzechs, the current Lucifer, it's only natural.
- Not So Different: Remember when Sirzechs wants to be called "Onii-chan" by Issei and she whacks him with a paper fan? In a Hot Springs Episode, she's alright with Issei calling her "Ane (elder sister)" at private times.
- Only Sane Woman: Whenever she joins in the antics of the Four Great Satans. And even then, sometimes she's weird seeing as she suggested to Rias to let Issei touch her breasts to power up.

- Red Baron: The Ultimate Queen
- The Rival: To Serafall back in the day for the title of Leviathan.

- The Stoic: In head-maid mode. Nothing phases her even if Sirzechs does something stupid.
- Not So Stoic: As soon as she becomes Rias' sister, she'll sternly lecture Rias for a very long time. Not to mention, she'll release an aura so powerful, everyone in the room feels like they're going to die.
- Switching P.O.V.: The light novel only shows us the conversation between Lord Phenex and Lord Gremory after Issei defeats Raiser while Sirzechs and Grayfia went away. In the anime, it shows hers and Sirzechs' perspective on the reason why the latter handed out the griffin to Issei and the latter's thoughts on the Welsh Dragon joining the devil group while Grayfia notes that he's happy about it. It probably reminded them of their circumstances back then.
- The Tease: The catch? She has to be drunk.

- Meaningful Name: Marqius Phenex in the Ars Goetia is described to have the appearance of the immortal bird, Phoenix, and the Phenex Family share the same motif and abilities as the Phoenix.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Inverted. The original uses the Phenex spelling, keeping with the Ars Goetia motif of the 72 Pillars. Funimation's subtitled streams use the Phoenix spelling, which doesn't help much since both words use the same katakana note .
- Then again according to The Other Wiki, Phoenix is an alternative spelling for Phenex.

- Heroic BSOD: He sulks in his room after Issei defeats him in his engagement party.
- Immortality: His main strong point is that he can't be killed. As you can imagine that is enough to get through most enemies.
- Jerkass: When first introduced in the story.
- Pet the Dog: Despite the fact that he still acts like a jerk towards Rias and still kissed his servants in front the group, he actually gave a lot of good advice to Rias and told Issei that if Issei is defeated, it is a blow to Rias. Not to mention, he's the one who gave Rias a handicap and told her that their Rating Game will take place in 10 days and tells her that if she wants to do it now, he knows he'll curb-stomp them.
- Playing with Fire
- Noble Male, Roguish Male: With Ruval, he is the latter.

- Third-Person Person
- To the Pain: In the anime, he loudly gloats that he can mortally wound Issei during a ratings game to bypass the safeguards and get away scot-free. He seems to have only said it to twist Rias' arm into surrendering. When he has a chance to outright kill Issei during their fight, he announces he'll just put Issei in a coma.
