* It makes perfect sense that Satan will live in "The city of fallen angels," as Dio puts it.

* At the film's climax, the Devil was challenged to a rock off. Now one has to consider; who would judge this tournament? It would have to be God himself, since He is above all the contestants and would be (somewhat) impartial.
** Another thing to consider; the challenge was a ROCK OFF. The Devil played ''metal'', and then he tried to zap Tenacious D after they finished their portion. Of ''course'' God would send the Devil back to Hell after that!
*** Not that He wouldn't anyway, but at least this way the Devil doesn't hurt anyone first...


* The D's use of an InvisibleBackingBand isn't immediately apparent, but they're presumably using ThePowerOfRock by playing the greatest song in the world.

* [[spoiler: JB agrees to put KG up as a bet for their rock-off with the devil...despite the Devil having said that he literally CANNOT decline a rock-off challenge. However in order to send Beelzeboss back to hell from whence he came. Jables HAD to strike a deal with him of some sort. There would've been nothing to gain from the challenge on either side, had Jables not offered Kyle's soul to Beelzeboss in the first place. Beelzeboss feed on the souls of the tormented. It literally was "the only way". If the D had won WITHOUT doing this, Beelzeboss would be loose on Earth and would have taken control of the world.]]
** [[spoiler: Seeing as Beelzeboss threatened that they would suck his cock for awakening him on to the mortal plane, JB actually AVOIDED sucking cocks in hell, by specifically offering Kage's soul in case they lost the challenge, where they'd be both literally fucked.]] [[spoiler: And seeing as they won they don't NEED to go to the big rock-off anymore because they just saved the world with their rock, and Beelzeboss pays their rent now.]]
*** [[spoiler: Unfortunately for them, they didn't actually win the rock-off, they just reflected Satan's attack with JB's guitar (a symbol of friendship between JB and KG. Yeah, symbolic stuff tends to do well against the supernatural). In a deleted scene, they mooch off of Lee after the events of the movie. Or maybe the guitar only reflected the attack because they had won; it's not really clear.]]
*** [[spoiler: Symbolic indeed. The guitar's neck is covered in symbols and iconography from practically every major system of faith.]]
*** [[spoiler: Sure they won. It's no coincidence that [[SourceMusic drums, amp effects, and backup vocals come out of nowhere]] in the middle of the song, even though all they have are their unamplified guitars and their own voices. They literally have [[ThePowerOfRock the power of rock]] on their side, and maybe even a little help from [[{{God}} The Big Man]] himself.]]
*** [[spoiler: The song at the end of Beelzeboss is the song Tribute is a tribute to, think about it.]]
** OK, OK. [[spoiler: Jables is clearly the greatest [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] the world has ever known. He gave the Devil his terms: either he could have taken his sorry ass back to Hell and pay their rent or he could take Kage back to Hell to be his little bitch. In accepting this arrangement, the Devil agreed to shell out about $300 or [[{{Squick}} take home a brand spanking new, rotund personal sex slave]] and ''go back to Hell either way''.]]
** [[spoiler: It makes perfect sense that Beelzeboss will live in "The city of fallen angels", as Dio put it]]
* After the film's climax ("Beelzeboss"), JB and KG could not remember how the song they sang went, remarking how it was "the best song in the world". This possibly alludes to the ''Series/TenaciousD'' episode "The Greatest Song In The World", where the events (albeit distorted for theatrics) are retold in the form of the song "Tribute", including mentions of their battle with the "shiny demon" and the "Demon Code". This can be cemented as fact when the Devil featured in the film plays the "shiny demon" from the song in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lK4cX5xGiQ the music video]].

* The terms of the rock-off between the Devil and the D are made perfectly clear: they play a rock song. If Tenacious D wins, Satan goes back to Hell and he pays their rent. If the Devil wins, he goes on to do whatever he wants on Earth and he can do whatever he wants with Kyle. By the end, Satan is banished back to Hell, but ''not'' as a part of their deal. Technically, the Devil won the wager, and he was only banished when Jack used his horn to banish him back to Hell (meaning he cheated to get what he wanted). This means two things:
** Jack and Kyle would not be able to pay their rent (since the Devil could only pay their rent if he lost the challenge) and they would have to move out, possibly to the apartment they have in the [[Series/TenaciousD original series]].
** It is possible that Kyle's soul was officially damned for eternity, having officially become Satan's property after winning the challenge.

* In the climax, the D are challenged to defeat Satan in a rock-off to save themselves. After winning the challenge, more or less, they try to reconstruct the greatest song in the world, but can't. This is a rough dramatization of the D's song "Tribute," in which the D are challenged by a demon to play the greatest song in
the world has ever known. He gave at the Devil his terms: either he could have taken his sorry ass back to Hell and pay risk of their rent or he could take Kage back souls, then can't remember the song they played.
* JB offers KG
to serve as Satan's sex slave in Hell to be his little bitch. In accepting this arrangement, if they lose the Devil agreed rock-off. This saves JB himself from damnation as well as prevents Satan from wreaking havoc on Earth, since it would require Satan to shell out about $300 or [[{{Squick}} take home a brand spanking new, rotund personal sex slave]] and ''go back return to Hell either way''.]]
