* TamerAndChaster: The anime lacks the manga's emphasis on Beasts' hypersexuality, with theand its explicit rape and masturbation scenes that resulted from it. The emphasis is instead on psychological horror.

Added DiffLines:

* YuriGenre: To an extent, although more than the manga despite the lack of kissing.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Jun is less cheerful and more moody than in the manga, while Asuka is a lot colder and portrayed as a calculating chessmaster.
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: A much larger emphasis is placed on Jun's body image issues and her fear of people finding out she's a Beast. A natural result of her being a model instead of a teacher.
* AdaptationalWimp: Asuka doesn't have her psychic powers here. Instead, Devil Beasts are tracked via a device, with some TechnoBabble about how it detects a reaction in the creation of ATP when Beasts transform.


Added DiffLines:

* CanonForeigner: Jason Bates, although he serves as a stand-in for Devilman Liger.


Added DiffLines:

* GainaxEnding: Not as much as the manga, but still involves [[spoiler: Asuka turning into an angel with very little explanation, Jun falling into Hell through a portal opened by cultists (even though supernatural elements hadn't been mentioned before), and Jun merging with the dead to defeat Asuka, creating a world where humans and Devilmen coexist.]]
* GeckoEnding: Due to the manga being in an early stage when it started airing, the anime takes a different route, even though it was very different to begin with. Most notably, [[spoiler: the story turns not to be a sequel to the original Devilman, remaining as a standalone alternate universe, and Jun and Asuka are not the two halves of Satan.]] The manga ends with [[spoiler: Akira, Satan, and all the demons going to war against God and angels (and apparently winning)]], while in the anime [[spoiler: Asuka (the closest analog to God) is defeated, and humans apparently accept Devilmen into society.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Devil Beasts and Devilmen in this series have a power called Giga Effect that makes them grow gigantic.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Jun defeats the Child of God at the expense of the lives of all of her friends, including her [[SchoolgirlLesbians love interest Kazumi]], whose gruesome death as she was absorbed into Jun she was forced to watch; and she lost both her arms. However, the last scene is a human child playing with a Devil Beast child, suggesting that humanity is accepting their successors without any more violence.]]

** Another sense of Irony is Jun Fudo being more of the messiah and looking demonic in contrast to the angelic looking being claimed to be the "Child of God", but has more in common with {{Satan}} and TheAntiChrist [[spoiler: Jun was also resurrected like any depiction of Christ and despite Jun claiming herself to be the Devil, she fits more to the actual messiah meaning]].

Jun Fudo is a beautiful supermodel who is idolized by many. She also has a dark secret that not even she knows about at first, for within her lie the genes that hold the next step in the evolution of mankind, the same blood as the Devil Beasts, beast-like superhumans that terrorize the city. Unlike the rest of them, however, Jun has managed to hold a tenuous grip onto her humanity, and she is recruited by the mysterious Lan Asuka, member of a secret organization within the government, aimed at controlling and/or eliminating the berserk destroyers of humanity. Jun, as Devil Lady, must now save humanity by exterminating her own kind and stopping the machinations of [[BigBad Satoru]], the wicked boy who leads the Devil Beasts, but it is unclear how much longer can Jun keep her sanity in a situation she never chose to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* InTheStyleOf: ''Manga/DevilmanLady'' if adapted by Creator/BrianDePalma.



* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:Lan Asuka was an anti-hero in the manga, but in the anime, she's revealed to be the true main antagonist.]]
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Asuka proclaims herself the Child of God upon going OneWingedAngel.]]



* BuryYourGays: [[spoiler:Kazumi, Junís LoveInterest,]] dies at the hands of one of [[BigBad Satoru]]ís Devil Beasts.
* {{Chickification}}: In the manga, Jun is a former Olympic athlete who regularly lifts weights and swims. While she is at first horrified at the reveal of Devil Beasts and that she is a Devil Man, she quickly becomes accustomed to her role as a monster killer. She reacts like a regular person would in her situation. In the anime, Jun is a shy, timid model who has a hard time adjusting to being a Devil Man and doesn't want anything to do with hunting the Devil Beasts. She is a push-over compared to her manga counterpart and only displays a strong will and ferocity as Devilman Lady. JustifiedTrope in this case, as the anime has a vastly different tone and storyline than the manga, and the duality between Jun and her Devil Beast self is a major plot element.
* CreepyChild: [[BigBad Satoru]], leader of the Devil Beasts, looks like a young kid with a cap.



* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler: Jason Bateman]] is this to Jun.



* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:Kazumi's death]]



* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: In the manga, there is an American Devil Man named Jim Langer/Devilman Liger. In the anime, there is an American Scientist, and DM, Dr. Jason Bateman.
