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.
- 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)
The older brother of Rias and one of the Four 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.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy
- Promoted Fanboy: Wanted to compose his own music for a long time. Issei's show, "Breast 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.
- Shape Shifter: He can change into a cat if he wishes. This is how he met and made Souji his Knight.
- 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)
The older sister of Sona and also one of the Four Satans. She's also in charge of foreign affairs.
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.
Tropes relating to all four of them:
Voiced by: Show Hayami
(Japanese) and Andrew Chandler (English)
The head of the Gremory Family and Rias and Sirzechs' father.

The wife of Lord Gremory who comes from the House of Bael. Also Rias and Sirzechs' mother. She is called the Brunette Madame the Extinct.
The son of Sirzechs, and Grayfia and Rias' nephew.
Voiced by: Saori Seto (Japanese) and Krishna Smitha (English)
Sirzech's head maid and his Queen
who is one of the most powerful characters of Hell and is also Sirzech's wife.
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Always the tsukkomi whenever Sirzechs does something outrageous.
- 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.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Expy: Looks almost identical to Sakuya Izayoi.
- Foreshadowing: Her In Vino Veritas moment with Issei? The one where she mentions her family? It's going to be one of the main highlights of the 14th Volume, specifically her brother.
- 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: Type 1 in the Hot Springs short story.
- 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 Satans. And even then, sometimes she's weird seeing as she suggested to Rias to let Issei touch her breasts to power up.
- Paper Fan of Doom: Whips it out whenever Sirzechs says something stupid.
- Red Baron: The Ultimate Queen
- The Rival: To Serafall back in the day for the title of Leviathan.
- The Tease: The catch? She has to be drunk.
- She Is the King: She can make Sirzechs' entire peerage scared just by showing up. One of them happens to be a giant that can breathe fire!
- Statuesque Stunner: She stands at 5'10" according to official material.
- 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.
A Qilin who is Sirzechs' Pawn.

Sirzechs' Bishop who knows a lot about magic.

- Heroic BSOD: He sulks in his room after Issei defeats him in his engagement party.
- Jerkass: When first introduced in the story. Flanderized in the anime version to the point when comparing him to his light novel version/manga version, he's way different.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: 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.
- Shout-Out: He is named after the 00 Raiser from Gundam 00.
- Super Power Lottery: His main strong point is that he can't be killed. As you can imagine that is enough to get through most enemies.
- 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.
- Training from Hell: He gets subjected to this by Issei and Tannin to do this in the same mountains that Issei trained at.

Tropes associated with them:
Cousin of Rias and Sirzechs from their mother's side and ranked Great King. Unlike other devils, he did not inherit his family's trademark Power of Destruction, the same power that Rias and Sirzechs have. Instead, he trained himself to the point that he can fight off anybody. His wish is to become one of the Four Lords of Hell.
- Badass: Oh hell yes! From his first appearance alone, you know he was going to be one of the biggest badass characters of the series.
- Badass Normal: All he has is just pure physical power and nothing else seeing as he doesn't have Power of Destruction. And yet he's kicked everybody's ass.
- Cultured Badass
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Lacking the Power of Destruction, he instead trained his body and his fists, to the point where every punch is a Megaton Punch.

- Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: Requests from Sirzechs to lift up the rules that restrict the Gremory team so that they can fight at full power.
- Lightning Bruiser: Noted by both Issei and Kiba to be fast, strong and durable. Considering how strong Issei is and how fast Kiba is we can take their word for it.
- Magnetic Hero: According to Sirzechs.
- Megaton Punch: Enough to knock out anybody.
- Muggle Born of Mages: Well, the equivalent of devils, but he still counts.
- No Sell: He can stop Issei in his Trianna Welsh Dragonic Rook form. Not so much when Issei's at Cardinal Crimson Queen.
