* ''Sandman'' formed the basis for his own series ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'' a decade later, in which he's sort of but not quite an AntiHero. He appears as a blonde, handsome angel, with no hint of the demonic, except for bat wings--which he [[ImportantHaircut loses when he retires]]--and two tufts of hair intended to resemble horns. (He is referred to as "Satan" only once across both series, and that by a guy who wanted to make a DealWithTheDevil and ''really'' didn't get it.)

Added DiffLines:

** However , while many satanic looking figures appear, the notion of ''The'' Devil seems to be averted in the Buffyverse, notable in that there is no one, singular Hell, rather a series of dimensions, each with it's own Satanic archetype, such as the Hellgod Glorificus, it seems to be a universe of AngelsDevilsAndSquid with no single God or Devil, with leanings towards more DemonLordsAndArchdevils and any BigGood is usually portrayed as more grey than white.

Added DiffLines:

* Unicron is pretty much the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' equivalent of Satan, and even kind of looks like a robotic version of the stereotypical BigRedDevil. He's a [[PlanetEater planet-eating]] EldritchAbomination that's literally [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil powered by concepts like hatred and strife]]. He seeks to corrupt or destroy all existence because ''he finds it personally offensive''. Sometimes he makes [[DealWithTheDevil deals]] with mortals, promising power or some other such thing in exchange for their service, but these deals never end well for the mortal. He's also notably more successful then the typical Satan-figure; he's destroyed at least 20% of the local multiverse and [[ApocalypseHow he apparently once succeeded in destroying all reality]]. The only reason anything exists now is because he missed a few fragments and went dormant, allowing reality to reform. [[{{Understatement}} He wasn't happy when he woke up]].

* On ''Series/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'', Satan is worshipped as the true god by the witches of the Church of Night, who try to present him as a champion of free will who is the victim of Christian propaganda. However, he clearly expects full obedience from his worshippers or else they suffer. He also able to manifest on Earth at will, either through possessing people or taking on a physical form similar to {{Baphomet}}.

* ''Film/{{Bedazzled|1967}}'', the Devil is more in line with the Book of Job version, in which it's his/her job to test humanity with sin. Peter Cook plays the role as a DeadpanSnarker and a {{Trickster}}, while Elizabeth Hurley plays a seductress in [[Film/{{Bedazzled 2000}} the remake]]. Both seem to enjoy their job a lot.

** Perhaps the best candidate (though there's no reason they can't all be him) is Aaron Starkey in "All Souls". He's after the souls of Nepholim (children of Seraphim and human women) which a Priest claims the Devil actually would be after, is capable of setting people on fire with a glance, his [[TheShadowKnows shadow has horns]], he can't enter churches, and speaks with VoiceOfTheLegion when angered. It's heavily implied an actual Seraphim finally defeats him.

* In the memorable "Halloween" episode of ''Series/QuantumLeap'', the Devil impersonated Al in an attempt to trap and punish Sam for the [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong "fixes" and improvements]] he'd made in the timeline (unless it was AllJustADream). Later, it is implied that Satan is (perhaps indirectly) in charge of the organization responsible for the "Evil Leapers" Sam encounters.

** Potentially HilariousInHindsight since Cranston is now best-known for his role as [[VillainProtagonist Walter White]] on ''Series/BreakingBad''.
* ''Series/SevenDays'' had the Devil show up disguised as a chrononaut from further in the future, tricking the team into assassinating a diplomat and provoking an international crisis that would result in nuclear war. His identity is revealed when Parker stops him, provoking a rant at how Parker and the team keep screwing up the plans he makes for human misery.

** "Printer's Devil". Our favorite demon tries to get a newspaper owner to sell his soul by giving him a linotype machine that can make things come true by printing them. Here he's played with utter relish by Burgess Meredith.
** The 80's revival has the episode "Dealer's Choice", wherein the Devil crashes a poker game to collect on the soul of one of the players. However, he's a pretty [[AffablyEvil affable guy]], not even revealing himself for a while because he's having such a fun time playing, and when he's discovered, he gives his target a chance to win his freedom in a game.

rock'n'roll success. They appear to have a [[PunchClockVillain really nasty job]]. Also, he's considerably nicer than most of gotten it, but the people ''opposing'' him.
* On ''Series/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'', Satan is worshipped as the true god by the witches of the Church of Night, who try to present him as a champion of free will who is the victim of Christian propaganda. However, he clearly expects full obedience from his worshippers or else they suffer. He also able to manifest on Earth at will, either through possessing people or taking on a physical form similar to {{Baphomet}}.

"The Adversary" fills the role of God's prosecuting attorney and Loyal Opposition; he's much less nice. In spite of being on opposite sides of a war, the two of them get along rather well.

He operates a deal booth styled like Lucy's booth in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', and is antagonized by The Faceless God, who mocks him with a silly handpuppet. Aside from various taunts against God and attempts to tempt people or buy their souls, he is generally presented as a neutral or even sympathetic character compared to the petty and whimsical God.

* Satan has made a handful of appearances in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', most notably being summoned onto Riff's computer in the strip's first StoryArc, and for being the father of [[CatsAreMean The Evil]].
* In [[http://mangapunksai.deviantart.com Manga Punk Sai's]] ''The Story From Hell'' has Satan and Lucifer as two separate characters: loyal angel Satan is in charge of Hell, and his rather thankless duties include hunting down fallen angel Lucifer whenever he manages to run off to Earth.
