The Four Great Satans

    In General 

Tropes relating to all four of them

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Issei even wonders how all four of them can even run Hell's affairs.
  • Asskicking Pose: As the Satan Rangers.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: They've all earned their credentials to be the Four Lords of Hell by kicking ass and taking names.
  • 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 

Sirzechs Lucifer (Gremory)

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese) and Alex Organ (English)

Rias' older brother and one of the Four Great Satans, bearing Lucifer's name.
  • 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.
  • Insane Troll Logic: He once spent what is implied to be several days (if not a few weeks) straight stalking Issei as Satan Red in an attempt to take back Millicas' admiration from Oppai Dragon. It is exactly as insane as it sounds.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Nice Guy: He's quite mellow, to say the least.
  • Promoted Fanboy: In-Universe. He wanted to compose his own music for a long time. Issei's show, "Oppai Dragon" made it possible for him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Grayfia's blue.
  • 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.
  • Sentai
  • Shape Shifter: He can change into a cat if he wishes. This is how he met and made Souji his Knight.
  • Shipper on Deck: He fervidly ships Issei with Rias.
  • 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.

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.

Riser Phenex

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese) and Christopher Corey Smith (English)

Rias' fiance and the third son of the House of Phenex.
  • Arc Villain: He is the main antagonist of Volume 2 (Episodes 6-12 of Season 1 in the anime).
  • Arranged Marriage: He and Rias became engaged because of an agreement between their families, in an attempt to preserve the bloodline of Pure-Blooded Devils.
  • Break the Haughty: After losing the Engagement Challenge, he comes around to treat the protagonists with more respect. By the time of Issei's "death", he comes around to offer his sincere condolences.
  • Character Exaggeration: His Jerkassery in the anime version. To the point when comparing him to his light novel version/manga version, he's way different.
  • Disposable Fianc
  • Engagement Challenge
  • Foil: Can be considered one for Issei. One is an Ordinary High-School Student while the other is a Born Winner; Issei wants a harem while Raiser already has one; and Issei is deeply respectful of Rias while Raiser treats her like a trophy to be won.
  • Graceful Loser: He forgives Issei for his actions in cancelling his marriage with Rias, but he won't forgive him if he tries to make any unforgivable moves on his sister.
  • 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.

  • Playing with Fire
  • Noble Male, Roguish Male: With Ruval, he is the latter.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: He is named after the 00 Raiser from Gundam 00.

  • Third-Person Person
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He offers his condolences to the Occult Research Club when Issei "died" at the beginning of Volume 12.
  • 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.

  • Training from Hell: He gets subjected to this by Issei and Tannin to do this in the same mountains that Issei trained at.

Other Devils

    Diodora Astaroth 

Diodora Astaroth

Voiced by: Makoto Furukawa (Japanese) and Aaron Dismuke (English)

One of the six young devils who participated in the Young Devils Gathering in Volume 5. He reappears at the end of the volume to ask for Asia's hand in marriage. He is main, albeit Affable, antagonist of Volume 6.

He eventually kidnaps Asia and reveals that he was the devil Asia healed when she was a member of the church. He wanted to have Asia as a part of his harem, and had her excommunicated from the church. He drops his politeness when they confront him in a Rating Game, and is eventually defeated by Issei, then killed by Shalba Beelzebub.
  • Affably Evil: Despite being Volume 6's antagonist, he's fairly polite and kind, albeit somewhat obsessed with Asia, until his true colours show following The Reveal.
  • Arc Villain: The main antagonist of Volume 6.
  • Character Death: Killed by Shalba following his defeat at Issei's hands.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He appears briefly during Volume 5, only to reappear at the end of the volume and set himself up as the main antagonist of Volume 6. He is also mentioned as a part of Asia's backstory as far back as the first volume.
  • Cuckold: Proposes to and attempts to kidnap and rape Asia, incurring the wrath of Issei.
  • Bigger Bad: Of Volume 1.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In the end, he is defeated by Issei fairly easily, and is the first villain to go down without the help of the other members of the Occult Research Club.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He may be hard to see among the crowd, but he made a brief cameo in chapter 21 of the manga during Rias and Riser's engagement party. See the third panel for yourself.
  • Evil Gloating: When the group confront him, he continuously taunts Issei about having kidnapped Asia, eventually crossing one too many lines and causing Issei to reach his Rage Breaking Point by threatening to rape Asia.
  • Evil Plan: He had planned to make Asia a part of his harem from the very beginning.
  • Expy: He looks like Hazama/Yuuki Terumi, but with a different hair color.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In reality, his politeness is a farce. He had planned all along to kidnap and torment Asia, and he is as horrible as they come.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: It gradually becomes obvious - and eventually gets said point-blank by Issei - that the only reason the rest of the Devils put up with his transparent smarmyness is because offing him could cause a civil war.
  • Hope Spot: Invoked. He explicitly plans to kill the group in front of Asia just so he can see her lose all hope.
  • The Man Behind the Man: More or less behind the events of Volume 1 and Asia's excommunication from the church.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: He had a backup plan that accounted for his defeat - a Longinus seal that would devour Asia to ensure that she could never return to Issei and the Occult Research Club.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: It's very slight, but his name is said differently between the sub and dub versions. 'Dio-da-ra' vs. 'Dio-door-a', respectively
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: His threat to rape Asia establishes him as one of the most despicable, irredeemably evil villains in the series, and causes Issei to explode in a fit of anger, reaching Balance Breaker. Nobody even cares what happens to him after this, and even Ddraig advises Issei to "go all out, partner".
    Diodora: (whilst gloating) It may be fun to rape Asia as she calls out your name!
  • The Reveal: Two. Firstly, he was the devil who Asia healed while she was still affiliated with the church, and secondly, he had been planning to kidnap Asia all along.

    Seegvaira Agares 

Seegvaira Agares

The Heiress of the House of Agares.
  • Meganekko
  • Otaku: Of the mecha verity. She uses it as a stress relief from the duties of the Agares heiress.

    Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas 

Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas

The next heir to the House of Glasya-Labolas. He is Falbium's younger brother.

    Dilhauser Belial 

Dihauser Belial

The head of the House of Belial and the number one-ranking Rating Game champion. Known as "Emperor" Belial.
  • The Atoner: No matter how well-intentioned his plans were, he still exposed himself to the public that he did help out Rizevim for Agreas and kidnapping both Riser and Ravel during the Rating Game.
  • Badass: Kind of expected when he's the top dog. When Issei finally gets to fight him, it's clear Issei was very outclassed. He also made Rizevim's phoenix tears useless thanks to his ability. The fact that everyone else in the top rankings decided to use the "King" piece just to make themselves stronger while he doesn't even use it yet is still at the top cements it.
  • The Champion: The King of the Rating Games.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Shockingly enough, he decides to side with Rizevim.
    • Good All Along: Yet, like Crom Cruach, he was merely using Qlippoth for his own goals and also to uncover the corruption of the Rating Games.
  • Fake Defector
  • Mr. Fanservice: The moment his face was revealed, he became this.
  • The Plan: After finding out who was responsible for killing her cousin, he then sets out a plan to expose the crimes of the illegal activities in the Rating Game. Then he got close to the guy who exposed all this, Rizevim, just to take him out. He does this by having a Rating Game with Riser to find out how to make the phoenix tears worthless, and then use it on Rizevim's phoenix tears.
  • Red Baron: The Emperor.
  • Stealth Mentor: When he fights Issei, this is what Issei thought of him as since Belial clearly held back against him.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: No shirt, just a long jacket and he doesn't even cover it.
  • Walking Spoiler: Specifically the part about he's The Mole for Rizevim. And the part where he's actually a Reverse Mole.
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: He's definitely no "boy" as he's alive for a long time, however he definitely is good looking.
  • The Worf Effect: Just to show how dangerous Jabberwocky was, he and his team threw out their strongest attacks but they still couldn't get through his instant regeneration. Although considering the recent reveals He may have been holding back.

    Cleria Belial 
Cousin of Dilhauser, the former governor of Kuoh town before Rias, and Yaegaki Masaomi's devil lover. Already dead by the time the story starts.
  • Cassandra Truth: Told Dilhauser about the rumored "King" piece but he thought it was just nothing but rumors. Unfortunately, by the time he finally figured out it actually exists, she's already dead.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead before the series starts.
  • The Reveal: Her knowledge of the illegal "King" piece which allows to make the kings stronger in Rating Games. Dilhauser never used it because he was too powerful, however everybody else in the top rankings did.
  • She Knows Too Much: Her love for gossips unfortunately was the reason why the old devils decided to have her dead.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Yaegaki.
