* The Emcee from ''Theatre/{{Cabaret}}'' has a lot in common with a "devil-in-human-form" figure, from his taste in snazzy red and black suits to his perpetual PsychoticSmirk. He is (probably) not literally demonic, but rather a man who represents the decadence and apathy of 1930s Germany that led to the election of UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. Some productions make him more sympathetic by giving the CutSong "I Don't Care Much" to him.

** Specifically, ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' (the game in question) had a bonus disc with Dante of ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' and a 6th, "maniac" ending, which is what we got. In said bonus disc, you could [[spoiler:choose a 6th path, choosing instead of joining any of the "good" or "evil" characters to screw them all and to meet with Lucifer, who has ''interesting'' ideas about your place in the universe]]. This lets you get the sixth ending, [[spoiler: True Demon Ending. Wherein you join Lucifer and attack heaven, to try and stop the constant destruction and recreation of the millions of alternate Earths -- and the genocide of billions of humans -- by God]]. Although, considering that he has an ObviouslyEvil smile on his face when you make the aforementioned decision, one could make a case for the player being [[UnwittingPawn suckered in]]. Though, to be fair, he gives you a lot of time ''and'' a certain amount of reasons as to why you ''shouldn't'' agree to his plan.

** However, he subverts parts of this in that his given name, Advocat, doesn't allude at all to his real name [[spoiler: Mephistopheles. Yes, ''that'' [[{{Faust}} Mephistopheles]]]]. Luckily he's actually TrueNeutral and doesn't directly involve himself (and when he does, it's usually to help ''[[FullNameBasis Lillet Blan]]'' in a small way).
