[[caption-width-right:250:Bearalzebub and the Daivas]]

[[http://www.thedevilbear.com DevilBear]] is a {{webcomic}} created by Ben Bourbon that has been online since July of 2009. All of the pages are hand drawn and a new page is posted weekly each Monday.

The Devilbear is a plush bear named Bearalzebub who rules teddy bear hell and is assisted by a group of devil girls called Daivas (because plush bears are limited by having "mitten hands"). The Daivas each have a job named for one of the SevenDeadlySins, such as "Daiva of Gluttony" but generally do not demonstrate the sin so much in themselves, but instead they do things that encourage others to partake in it. For example, the Daiva of Lust is very curvy and oozes innuendo but she does not lust for anyone herself and the Daiva of Gluttony is not a glutton herself but she is an awesome cook. The Daiva of Sloth, however, wears only one sock; she is either too lazy to remove it, or too lazy to put the other one on, and the Daiva of Wrath is currently trying to kill everyone.

Most of the plush bears that end up in teddy bear hell are parodies of famous plush bears or celebrities personified as plush bears and die violent deaths that spill their stuffings about.
!!''[=DevilBear=]'' provides examples of:

* AffablyEvil: The whole cast. They may not be [[ComicBook/TheJoker Joker]] level evil, but they are not very nice people, but they are pretty likable in the process. Well, except [[AxeCrazy Wrath]]...
* AnthropomorphicFood: Gummy Berries, which are basically sentient talking gummy bears that can be harvested from bushes. And in spite of being berries, do ''not'' want to be eaten.
* BathKick: Lucy does one at [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=25 the end of issue #1]].
* BerserkButton: It is not recommended that you mock Cerebutt's triple butt... he won't take it well.
* BlandNameProduct: Helle Belle is apparently addicted to [[VideoGame/DiabloIII Diabear 3.]]
* CameBackWrong: When Kristofer Raven and Porklet make an attempt to bring their Plush Bear friend back from the dead, he comes back AxeCrazy and tries to eat his friend's [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=21 stuffings]].
* CareBearStare: A rainbow attack employed by the [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=58 Virtue Bears]] incites [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=72 love, serenity, and altruism]]. It backfired.
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive: The familiar-looking secretary in Gener-ahh-city makes a Gendo pose while [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=70 plotting]] at her desk.
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: One sinful bear integrated too many electronics with his body and had his empathy weakened as a side effect. After said electronics are broken, he expresses deep regret over getting his best friend killed... [[HeelFaceDoorSlam just before]] getting murdered by Bearalzebub.
* DealWithTheDevil: The band members of Smooch (a parody of Music/{{Kiss}}) are [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=32 tricked]] into selling their souls in exchange for being rock stars for life. Then they promptly [[spoiler:[[WhatAnIdiot die partying too hard]] after their first show.]]
* DestructiveSavior: When Super Bear winds in Hell, he points out how he helps and saves people. [=DB=] points out he ''also'' wrecks cities, artifacts and lives in the process.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler: [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=287 Mo is possibly this]], after retrieving the remains of the original Devil Bear.]]
* DrivenByEnvy: One sinful bear was left to die in a fire, while one of his fellow toys, a stuffed bunny, was loved enough to become real and therefore to escape. He now murders stuffed rabbits and has been making a rabbit suit out of their parts, hoping that this will make him as loved as them.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=365 The long line of bears]] from the infamous 2013 [=VMAs=] incident, you can guess [[TakeThat what happened]].
* EasyRoadToHell: According to Bearalzebub, Teddy Bear Hell is a punishment for those teddy bears who failed to exert universal love and friendship. Bears who do well go to the Fabric of Time, but hell appears to be the default fate for most bears, with even the childishly innocent Poquebears ending up in that place.
* EvilVersusEvil: Many of the conflicts in the comic essentially amount to this.
* FlatEarthAtheist: The Church of Bearalzebub doesn't believe there is an ''actual'' Bearalzebub and treats him as a symbol for their ideals.
* FuroScene: Because [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=25 cleanliness]] is next to [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=49 Daiva-liness]].
* GRatedDrug: One bad teddy snorts ''sugar''.
* HorsemenOfTheApocalypse: As his revenge against Bearalzebub and Raine, Bearlial recruits the Pegasus of Conquest, the Unicorn of War, the Alicorn of Famine, and the Pony of Death to initiate the long foretold Apawcalypse. All of whom are {{Shout Out}}s to ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. There is also a little known fifth Pegasus of Pestilence, who was replaced by Conquest due to his brain problems, and is currently under Bearalzebub's thumb. ''All'' of them turn out to be TooDumbToLive, and the Apawcalypse only damages Gener-ahh-city before they get themselves killed.
* HotSpringsEpisode, ModestyTowel, SkinnyDipping, and OutdoorBathPeeping: [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=103 All at the same time.]]
* IJustWantToBeLoved: One foe claims this is true for all Plush Bears, even Bearalzebub, and tries to tempt him to her side by offering to play with him and cuddle him at night and basically treat him like an actual teddy bear. He turns her down.
* LightIsNotGood: The "Bright Side" tends to be about as evil as Bearalzebub, just more self-righteous about it. Raine doesn't even manage that.
* LivingToys: Toys are alive and in addition to some being owned by humans are a regular part of society.
* NakedApron: In the first story arc, when Lucy, the Daiva of Lust, fills in for the Daiva of Gluttony position, she naturally adds a flair of [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=2 Lust]] to it.
* TheNudifier: The Death Pony can radiate power to destroy everything fabric, making it a devastating attack against both teddies and fashion.
* {{Parody}}: ''[=DevilBear=]'' is full of them. Especially in the teddy bears that end up going to Hell. Parodies of [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=3 Winnie the Pooh]] , [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=28 Kiss]], and [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=52 Pokemon]] to name a few.
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler: Sinnamon, the original Daiva of Gluttony.]]
* PowerGivesYouWings: The Daivas have wings made out of [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=121 light]]
%% * PrettyFreeloader: Helle Belle, the Daiva of Sloth.
* RockMeAsmodeus: In the second story arc, Bearalzebub uses [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=46 rock music]] against a teddy bear parody of Kiss.
* RuleOfSexy: Many examples throughout the series, usually performed by one of the Daivas.
* SevenDeadlySins: Each of [=DevilBear=]'s female assistants represent a different deadly sin, though Pride (seen [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=134 here]]) joins them later on, and Wrath had to be 'put on ice' prior to the start.
* ShaggyDogStory: The chapter, ''Cooking with Fire'', features a cooking show hosted by Bearalzebub, with the prize being the award of {{Reincarnation}} and a second chance at life for the damned contestants. Nuzzle continuously murders the other contestants, eventually building up to a confrontation with Chastity Bear. In the end, Nuzzle and Chastity Bear "die" at one another's hands, leaving the Boatsman as the winner by default. But then Bearalzebub remembers that he is an employee, and is therefore disqualified.
* SlipIntoSomethingMoreComfortable: Lucy [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=11 changes]] from wearing nothing but an apron to wearing a black corset.
* SneezeOfDoom: Turns out Poquebear has a rather powerful [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=324 sneeze]].
* SugarApocalypse: ''[=DevilBear=]'' loves to do this. Often a parody of some familiar teddy bear character ends up going to hell and/or literally having the stuffings ripped out of him. [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=22 Winnie the Pimp]] and friends is a classic example. Bearlial's vengeance, the Apawcalypse, is far more literal:
-->'''Pegasus of Conquest:''' The '''sky''' will rain flowers! The '''streets''' will flow with rainbows!
* TakeThat: It's undeniable [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=365 this scene]] was an blatant jab at {{Music/MileyCyrus}}' 2013 [=VMAs=] incident.
%% * TeamMom: Lucy Fur is this.
* {{Twincest}}: The twin attorneys, Ipso & Facto, seem to have a rather close relationship.
* UnderBoobs: Pleased to [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/comics.php?p=33 meet you]], with a side of side boob on the side.
* WorldOfPun: The comic uses puns frequently. The characters [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=32 Bearalzebub]] and [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=14 Lucy Fur]] in particular make puns the most in the series. Ursa, the Daiva of Wrath, however, [[http://www.thedevilbear.com/?p=56 indicates]] that she hates puns.
%% * {{Yandere}}: Ursa, Daiva of Wrath.
