"Let's rock and roll!"

Played By: Adam Sandler

Nicky is the third son of Satan and Satan's favorite son compared to Adrian and Cassius. Nicky is into rock music and Popeye's chicken.

  • Anti Anti Christ?: Nicky is quite a likable son of the devil.
  • Black Speech: Nicky's sleep talk.
  • Born of Heaven and Hell: The son of Satan and an angel, which is why he's a nice guy who does enjoy darker things. He is well liked by both the denizens of Hell, with the exception of his half-demon brothers, and Heaven. He also has the ability to travel to Heaven or Hell after "death" on Earth, which requires him to do something good (Heaven) or bad (Hell) beforehand.
  • Catchphrase: Get in the flask!
  • Death Is Cheap: Nicky was born in Hell and left it near the start of the movie. Dying and being sent back there just means he gets to leave and try again.
  • Dumb Is Good: Nicky is far dumber than Adrian. One character even flat out remarks that there's no way Nicky can outsmart him.
    • It's implied that Nicky isn't dumber because he's good, so much as because he's suffered a lot of head trauma over the years. Thanks to his brothers.
  • Meaningful Name: "Old Nick" is an old folkloric nickname for the devil.
  • Parental Favoritism: Nicky, apparently. Which might explain why his brothers pick on him so much.
  • Precision F-Strike: After Nicky ate Popeye's chicken for the first time.
    Nicky: Popeye's chicken is fucking awesome!
  • Rock Me, Asmodeus!: Ironically, Satan's least evil son is a fan of heavy metal and hard rock.
  • Speech Impediment: Nicky gained this after Cassius hit his throat with a shovel.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Nicky is killed seven times. Being a denizen of Hell, he can just walk right back out. Deaths include: Being hit by a train twice, being hit by a truck and a bus, attacked by a polar bear off-screen, drowned by his roommate and for the finale hit in the head with a large rock.

Played By: Harvey Keitel

Satan is the second ruler of Hell and decided not to have any of his sons to succeed him for the next ten thousand years. Now that Cassius and Adrian left Hell with his Fireball of Hades, Satan is falling apart.

  • All There in the Manual: A Deleted Scene reveals that he made the flask so that the Fireball of Hades that is keeping him alive will be regained.
  • And I Must Scream: When he is falling apart from his body to just his mouth.
  • Deal with the Devil: Subverted. Dan Marino wants to sell his soul to Satan, but he's rejected because Satan thinks he's too much of a nice guy to go to Hell...and because he's a Jets fan.
  • Dirty Old Man: Somewhat as the ruler of Hell like his father before him.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": "Satan" is implied to be a title, since his successor will be "the new Satan". His actual name is not revealed.
  • Satan Is Good: He punishes sinners, maintains the balance of good and evil, and is a supportive dad who only wants what's best for Nicky. He's fine with him living on Earth.
  • You Have Failed Me: He punished Stanley by giving him two giant breasts on his head after Stanley failed to stop Adrian and Cassius from leaving.
