Hot as Hell

Go To

"The devil hath power
To assume a pleasing shape."

Not all demons are Big Red Devils or massive draconic beasts who seek to terrify or destroy every human they meet. Some fiends like to take more subtle approach to their machinations, and take the form of a beautiful woman or a handsome man when going among mortals.

Demons often want to tempt mortals into committing sin, and one of the ways they do it is through adopting a pleasing form, linking the metaphorical seduction towards evil that a person faces is to a literal seduction attempt. While sometimes it will be as blatant as a succubus or incubus trying to jump the hero's bones, in others it will simply be an additional way to throw the hero off their game by taking a form the demons knows they're attracted to, thus making it harder for them to bring themselves to hurt the demon.

The origins for this trope have their roots in the idea that Beauty Equals Goodness, one that is deeply ingrained in culture and which a demon will not hesitate to use to its advantage. Meanwhile, sex and sexuality are, in Christianity, often linked with evil (and evil itself is often depicted as an erotic, tempting force). This combines to mean that while angels usually have chaste, Angelic Beauty and modest white robes, demons will either be slinking around in tight red dresses or Dressed Like a Dominatrix.

Often overlaps with Divinely Appearing Demons (if they don't have pointed horns and a tail instead), Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon (unless they're a Noble Demon). If female, they're often Cute Monster Girls, with their only outwardly demonic features being bat wings, horns, and a tail. A subtrope of Our Demons Are Different.

    Anime & Manga 
  • Ah! My Goddess: Generally, the demons are no less attractive than their goddess counterparts.
    • Hild, while not Satan him/herself, is still the C.E.O. of the Infernal Realm.
    • Hagall: in the manga, when Hild is removed in a coup by her deputies, and the position is taken by Hagall, who is not a bad looker either.
  • Chainsaw Man: Makima, the femme fatale leader of the Public Safety Devil Hunters and Denji's apparent love interest is revealed in the finale of Part 1 to be the "Control Devil", who had been pulling the strings behind the curtains the entire time.
  • Crimson Spell: Demons in the Crimson Spell ‘verse vary widely in appearance, but Vald is a lithe, elfin Cute Monster Guy who spends most of his on-page time naked.
  • The Dark Queen and I Strike Back: Fleonell is a subversion. Despite her demonic appearance and voluptuous figure, she's actually a virgin with an incredibly innocent outlook on sex.
  • The Devil is a Part-Timer!: The main character Maou (Satan) appears as a bishounen in his de-powered human form, while his true form is a sexy beast.
  • High School D×D is filled to the brim with attractive demonic women, as well as demonic men. The main female protagonist Rias Gremory is one of many examples.
  • Interspecies Reviewers: Howakko is an alluring demon girl who acts as a prostitute for pleasure.
  • Maoyu: Maou-sama is the leader of the demons, the ultimate enemy of mankind and a gorgeous woman. Subverted in that she is closer to Prometheus than to Satan and wants a sustainable peace between their realms.
  • Devils in Monster Musume come in three categories: while Lesser Devils look like prepubescent kids despite being fully grown, Greater and Elder Devils look like late teens and young adults respectively and fit this trope quite nicely. Case in point, the Greater Devil Lethe and Elder Devil Saki from the now-defunct web game of the series.
  • My Balls: All of the demons are hot women.
  • Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt has the Demon Sisters, main villains of the show, who are Hot as Hell along with the two "angelic" protagonists, Panty and Stocking Anarchy.
  • Half of Tsuki Pro's "Origins" illustration series, depicting the cast of Bishounen idols as angels and demons.
  • Seven Mortal Sins: All of the mortal sins are extremely attractive in a buxomly curvaceous way, (except for Beelzebub, who is still absolutely cute). Asmodeus especially makes full use of her gorgeous looks to gather followers.
  • Vermeil in Gold: Vermeil is a Devil and obviously the "sexpot" kind, complete with horns, a devil's tail an attractive figure, and a flirtatious personality. Her powers are also sex-related as she powers up via Magic Kiss and has Living Aphrodisiac and Orgasmatron powers that can cause people to have a Forced Orgasm. She also notes that she can absorb mana more effectively via sex, only being satisfied with kissing and fondling out of consideration for Alto. After their mutual Love Confession there are implications they have started having sex outright, though it’s not been explicitly confirmed so far. In one case Vermeil seduces Alto in an open-air bath with them both ending up naked and spending a lot of time in it. We next see Alto exhausted and overheated, and Vermeil radiant with satisfaction (whether from a good feeding, sex, or both, being unclear).
  • The World God Only Knows: The Devils of the Runaway Spirit Squad are various degrees from cute (Elsea and Haqua) to hot (Nora).

    Comic Books 
  • Lady Blaze, the current queen of Hell in The DCU. With her helmet on, she has creepy glowing eyes and a Slasher Smile. Without it...
  • Dogwitch: Demons in this universe can make themselves appear attractive to mortals, and have no hang-ups about copulating with mortals. Additionally, both succubi & incubi exist as their own powerful sub-species within the demonic ranks.
  • In Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, the devil has a few different scary, horned male forms, but assumes the form of a cute cheerleader girl because it's one of the things that Johnny likes the least.
  • Lady Death from Chaos! Comics, Avatar Press, and Boundless Comics. After overthrowing Satan himself, she is, in fact, the ruler of Hell. Meanwhile, Purgatori from the same universe is actually a vampire, but, due to her Fallen Angel blood, she appears to look like a devil (wings, horns, red goat hooves, though).
  • Magik: As Darkchylde, who looks like her regular human self except with a red demon tail, black ram's horns, and either an extremely skimpy outfit or just fully naked and covered in fur.
  • Satan's Hollow has a female demon/succubus in Hell's court who serves as Satan's Queen. She looks like a cross between a Xenomorph and Daenerys Targaryen, which is about as sexually confusing as it sounds.
  • In the 1990s version of the Vampirella comic, her sexy mother Lilith rules Hell. (Luckily for Vampi when she dies and ends up there; her mother gives her a mission to fight vampires on Earth.)
  • In The Wicked + The Divine, Lucifer of the modern pantheon incarnates into the body of a young woman who dresses like the Thin White Duke and goes by Luci.
  • X-Factor (2006): Jezebel/Mephista is a red demoness with curly horns, an hourglass figure, and a very Stripperific outfit.

    Fan Works 
  • In Death Isn't All It's Cracked Up to Be Satan, while female and reasonably attractive, was more mischievous than evil. Similarly, Hell was more about punishment and redemption than torture and temptation.
  • Fairy May Cry: The Rusalka twins resemble naked females, used to attract victims.
  • Fate/Reach Out: Lilim, dangerous sex demons from Judeo-Christian lore. As Shirou's Persona and just like Eligor, Lilim has his best interests in mind, giving her a more Dark Is Not Evil characterization. However, given her particular sense of values, what she considers best for Shirou happens to involve him having his way with "any and EVERY girl he could want", which doesn't sit well with the guy.
    Lilim: I think I'll hang around if your life is like an episode from a harem show.
    Shirou: My life is not a harem show!
  • In the Good Omens fics of A.A. Pessimal, the hierarchy of Hell is fairly masculine. Although Hecate, beautiful Queen of Darkness and Insane Imaginings, is definitively female. Anthony Crowley also encounters Hell's training college for succubi - demons in female form sent out to tempt men with lust. He has a Friends with Benefits arrangement with a succubus called Lilith. Crowley himself, in accordance with one of the more gnomic scriptures of Genesis, is tasked with seducing a human woman and ensuring she has a half-demonic child - a Nephilim.note  He isn't above sex but after six thousand years would prefer to curl up in bed with a good book or an entertaining box set on the DVD.
  • Pony POV Series: Ispita is described as stunningly beautiful, and is a fallen angel. In one alternate universe, she is turned to stone by the Elements and put next to Discord's statue. Discord wishes the guards would turn her around so that he can stare at her ass.
  • Shadows Over Hell: Yoshimo is a tall, glossy peahen demon with big, soulful eyes and pleasing curves who likes to show a distracting amount of leg, partially to distract her enemies.

    Films — Animation 

    Films — Live-Action 

  • The Arts of Dark and Light:
    • A very creepy example with Scaum-Durna, who uses his demonic magic to appear as a beautiful woman. He becomes a Shameless Fanservice Girl, and enjoys a very active dating life while he remains in this form.
    • The female demon Baastiel is a more conventional case, who follows the traditional succubus routine, and eventually kills the unfortunate Speer in an encounter of this type.
  • Brimstone Angels: Downplayed. Lorcan's not an incubus so it's not actually part of his powers, but he's extremely handsome, knows it, and is perfectly willing to use his sex-appeal to keep people off-balance. Notably, he's very flirty with Farideh, but is much more reserved and businesslike with Havilar, as he knows he's not her type and trying to seduce her wouldn't get him very far.
  • Ellipsis: Asrava, albeit Played for Laughs. Then there's the matter of the demonic Fiends in the series, which is Played for Horror. The more mindless ones have an anything that moves mentality and stalk their human prey entirely naked, leading to an added level of powerlessness. There's even an moment where a character is dragged away by one of these demons, with the others later discovering their mutilated corpse split down the middle.
  • Journey to the West: At least three female demons (the Scorpion Woman, the Earth Flow Lady and the Jade Hare) are very beautiful and want to achieve immortality by taking Xuanzang’s "yang". (or having sex with him, if you prefer.) Literal evil temptation.
  • Rachaela: The main character, an Alchoholic Writer, falls in love with the title demon, who insists she's only after his soul. Ultimately she falls for his charms, and they can't stay together because she refuses to allow him to sell his soul for her hand in marriage. The story was adapted as an audiodrama here.
  • The Screwtape Letters: Inverted. Screwtape describes sexual temptation as a subject "of considerable tedium" and wastes no paper discussing it, as both he and Wormwood already know all there is to know about the methods in question.

    Live-Action TV 
  • The Comic Strip Presents: "Demonella". She's played by a young Jennifer Saunders wearing a corset, after all.
  • The television adaptation of Good Omens (2019) has David Tennant, a reliable Mr. Fanservice for the nerdishly inclined, as Crowley (although he is not really very evil at all. He is quite stylish though). He is the only demon who fits this trope — the rest are quite grungy-looking.
  • Lucifer (2016): Lucifer in his human appearance is very conventionally attractive, well-dressed, and charming, as many in-universe characters attest to. Though his actual "devil" appearance as revealed in full in Season 4 is mottled, bald, and strangely emaciated, and his "devil face" scares many a criminal.
  • The Monkees: The "Salesman" sequence in "The Devil and Peter Tork" shows the boys in Hell, tormented by a bunch of pitchfork-wielding sexy female demons clad in leotards with horns and tails.
  • Shadowhunters: When in human form, Lilith, the queen of Hell, is beautiful and always wears very figure-fitting dresses.
  • The Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Devil's Due" has Captain Picard facing off against the Ventaxian version of the devil known as Ardra... and boy, she knows how to flaunt what she's got! It turns out, though, that this Ardra is not really a supernatural being, but a con artist using advanced technology to pose as one.
  • Star Trek: Picard: In Romulan mythology, Seb-Cheneb and Seb-Natan are twin khalagu ("demons") who will instigate Ganmadan ("the Day of Annihilation"), and they're depicted in the pixmit card set as attractive, long-haired, leggy Vulcanoid women with dresses that display a bit of their cleavage.
  • Supernatural:
    • The recurring Crossroads Demons may be in a different body every time, yet, somehow, they are always hot women. Invoked, since they're specifically using those hosts to make their deals more palatable to their male clients, which is Sealed with a Kiss. We also see some in attractive men, who interact with female clients. Crowley, the "King of the Crossroads", however, is shown occasionally coming to seal with the deal with male clients, just to amuse himself with how uncomfortable they are kissing men.
    • Demon Queen Lilith wears this type of meat suit, even demanding that Sam have sex with her to seal a deal (Dean stops him). At least whenever she's not possessing a little girl to torment her family.
    • Satan himself is played by Mark Pellegrino, and the muscular Jared Padalecki.
    • In "The Song Remains the Same", Dean has a dream in which he's serviced by a stripper in a red devil's costume. Just to add to it, Anna, an actual angel who Dean had previously slept with, then shows up. She's visibly irked by his dream.
      Dean: I take it all back. I love the Devil.
      [Devil stripper is joined by a blonde in an angel's costume]
      Dean: Now that's what I call peace on Earth.
  • Tales from the Darkside: The demon in "Let the Games Begin" is a seductive woman, as a counterpart to the male angel.
  • Thunderbolt Fantasy: Zhao Jun Lin is a seductive demon who uses her beauty and charm as a primary means to bring the downfall of men.
  • The Twilight Zone (1959) has Satan turn up in several episodes, usually as a conniving businessman, but "Of Late I Think of Cliffordville" features the Devil as played by Julie Newmar. She doesn't really try to seduce the protagonist, and, within that episode, she might simply be the Devil's usual form, but looking like Catwoman while bargaining for a man's soul has gotta count as an advantage.

  • The video for Dimmu Borgir's song "The Sacrilegious Scorn" includes a painting of Baphomet morphing into a beautiful woman, though one with a deep male voice.
    • Although technically Baphomet is a woman anyway. At least, she is when the caduceus sitting on her lap isn't being interpreted as something else entirely, in which case Baphomet is a hermaphrodite.
  • Alice Cooper:
    • The song "You're My Temptation" is about the narrator trying to resist a seductive female trying to tempt him into Hell.
    • Done more aggressively in "I'll Bite Your Face Off" and "What Baby Wants".
  • From the Inside: "Nurse Rozetta" is implied to be this by the priest in this line:
    Satan sent her from the bowels of Hell.
    I should have recognized old Jezebel.
  • Ghost (Band): "Jigolo Har Megiddo"'s subject, most likely the Antichrist, describes himself as "the one who comes richly endowed" and brags up his sexual potency throughout the song.
  • KISS: Implied on "Radioactive" on the Gene Simmons 1978 solo album:
    You're my food, you're my water;
    You have to be the devil's daughter.
  • The music video for Lil Nas X's song "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" features Lil Nas X pole dancing down a miles-long stripper pole into hell, where he gives Flaming Devil Satan a lap dance and then snaps his neck, becoming the new ruler of hell.
  • The subject of Ringo Starr's "Devil Woman" from Ringo
    You look like the devil with horns in your head,
    The only way I'll get you is to get you in bed.
  • The music video for "The Devil" by Shinedown features a model playing the titular Devil trying to seduce the lead singer to his doom.
  • SiIvaGunner: Lady, the resident Satanic Archetype of SiIvaGunner is also a Ms. Fanservice known for rips featuring extremely explicit rap lyrics.
  • TWICE: A Girl Next Door version of Nayeon is beleaguered by a bunch of devil Nayeons in "TT". Said devil Nayeons are wearing a figure-hugging red dress, harmless-looking little horns, and lipstick — and, of course, look like Im Nayeon. Certainly more glamorous than the usual imaginings of the devil.

  • AC/DC: The "Luci" Premium Edition features seductive devil girl Luci, who is heavily implied to be Satan.
  • Devil's Dare: Doug Watson's original backglass art included naked green bat-winged devil girls lounging on the score displays.

    Professional Wrestling 
  • Priscilla Kelly was initially a sexually curious young woman from a strict household, but in FIP and EVOLVE she became "Hell's Favorite Harlot", a seductress who specializes in luring, dominating, corrupting men, and disturbing their women. FIP and EVOLVE are fairly "realistic" promotion and Kelly's "fame" prior to wrestling came from a reality television show, making her sudden succubus gimmick stand out that much more.

  • Towergirls: Some Princesses are often depicted as having devilish features, such as the Succubus and Imp Princesses.

    Tabletop Games 
  • The Dark Eye: Laaranim demons can turn themselves into whatever form their target considers most seductive and attractive. They specialize in slowly seducing, corrupting and maddening mortals, and are usually summoned as spies and infiltrators, or to seduce, corrupt or enslave political enemies. In their true form, however, they're coal-skinned, warty, neckless, perpetually drooling horrors. A variant exists in the form of thaz-laraanim, who only manifest in erotic dreams.
  • In the Dragonlance universe, one of Takhisis' various forms is that of "The Temptress". Basically, a really hot goth chick, although they don't describe it quite like that.
  • Dungeons & Dragons:
    • With their racial bonus to Charisma and official artwork tending to emphasize the attractiveness of tiefling females, combined with allusions to succubus and incubus ancestry, it's not uncommon for fans to portray tieflings as very sexually active, if not using their "fiendish allure" to be sexually provocative.
    • Brachina, or Pleasure Devils, are the only baatezu to truly specialize in sex and seduction and take on the appearance of attractive women.
  • Pathfinder: Basileus, the herald of demon lord Asmodeus, looks like a Fallen Angel wearing nothing but a black strip of cloth spiraling around his body. Aside from the Slasher Smile, he's pretty damned handsome if you're into that sort of thing.
  • Rifts: Mestoph Denali is a demonic entity known as a Corrupt and has a very beautiful figure, including the skill of seduction.
  • Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000: Slaanesh often qualifies, though, as the God of Excess, he/she/it can go a bit...over the top sometimes.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh!: There's the early equip spell Malevolent Nuzzler that features an (implied nude) demon woman in its artwork and boosts the ATK power of the monster its attached to by 700. The owner of the card can also choose to feed it 500 LP to recover it when its sent to the GY. (Like many other cards the Japanese edition gave a much clear picture of the spell's true nature by naming it "Akuma no Kuchizuki" which basically translates to "Demon's Kiss" in english.)


  • Busou Shinki: Type-SUCCUBUS Valona. Her headgear and flightpack have a bat-wings motif, and her primary breastplate has cleavage while her secondary breastplate has underboobs. Her close-combat fighting technique is even described as looking like she jumps/crawls into her opponent's arms!

    Video Games 
  • AFK Arena: Mehira is essentially a succubus in all but name. While nothing explicit is mentioned in her backstory, her modus operandi of using baser, darker desires to bend mortals to her will carries most of the same implications.
  • ActRaiser: Confusion is a beautiful ice demon who can shapeshift into a gorgeous maiden to seduce men for her own needs.
  • Azur Lane: The basis for Gneisenau's Halloween skin, including the infamous cliche of womb tattoos usually associated with hentai fanart, which surprisingly got past the censors in China even though initially the censored version was advertised there.
  • Baldur's Gate III has many such demons in both genders, such as Wyll's demonic patron Mizora, and the enigmatic Raphael. One of your companions downplays this trope: Karlach fits the bill from outward appearances, having a toned but curvy figure, a cute face, red skin, horns (one of which is broken), and a pointed tail. In truth, however, she is a tiefling who had been conscripted into the forces of Avernus's archduchess Zariel and, save for the Infernal Engine that replaced her heart (and also makes her literally hot, as in "capable of burning things through mere physical contact"), is otherwise a normal tiefling barbarian.
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: The Rul'sha and Vul'sha demons look very similar to the Succubi that appear in the Castlevania games and are wearing tight leather clothes and carrying whips. However, both demons have no desire to seduce the player and have holy aspects, including the type of shard they drop. The Rul'sha in a particular room will even bless a player if they aren't hostile to her.
  • Bombergirl: Grim Aloe, a devil girl who loves teasing the player, flaunts her seductive looks, and gets turned on whenever her clothes gets blown up.
  • Brütal Legend: Battle Nuns are heavily sexualized female demons who dress provocatively and have a sexually suggestive dialogue.
  • Darksiders: Lilith has a sexualized appearance, and is described as a "calculating temptress with an unrivaled lust" and she herself indicates she'll sleep with nearly anybody if she can find a reason.
  • Diablo: Cydaea is a Seductive Spider demon that even uses Succubi as her minions (and calls them her daughters).
  • Disgaea: Succubi, naturally. Nekomata (and Flora Beasts), also being cute female (er, mostly) demons, are occasionally lumped in with them (usually when they show up together). Almost all the Succubi and Incubi are drawn by the La Pucelle artist, making them stand out.
  • Dominions: Blood nations can summon Succubi and various other seducers from Hell. Notably, one of the Demon Lords can seduce both men and women.
  • Dragon Age: Desire demons, who take the appearance of attractive, nearly-naked women and whose idle animations during conversation include acts such as feeling themselves up.
  • Drakkhen: One monster you may encounter is a very naked she-devil.
  • Fate/Grand Order:
    • Her Innocent Monster skill has corrupted Molay into a form suited for indulging in pleasure, with her Third Ascension further changing her into more of a demon.
    • Mara's appearance and station lends itself to this, being a Horned Humanoid with a voluptuous figure reminiscent of a succubus who is one aspect of a god(dess) of love, albeit of a twisted kind.
  • Final Fantasy Tactics: Ultima is a devil, and wears the attire (a red leotard looking thing) you'd expect a hot devil girl to wear. However, her body is a blonde haired angelic one.
  • Friday Night Funkin': Girlfriend's demonic family plays with this. Mommy Mearest is the straightest example, as a well-known pop star with figure-hugging clothes and a song associated with her titled "M.I.L.F." While not as blatant regarding Daddy Dearest, he was an ex-frontman for a band and still has a chiseled figure in the present. Girlfriend herself is a downplayed example: while she is considered attractive, she's rather plain compared to her parents, plays a friendly role rather than a seducer, and is depicted with a human skin tone for most of the game, making her appear to be "just" a pretty girl.
  • Future Fragments: Talia, who turns into the very image of a succubus when exposed to the Fire Boss's essence.
  • Gal*Gun: Kurona is a demon who looks like a cute girl, with her only inhuman features being small black bat wings, a black pointed tail, and curved horns. Her adult self in Gal Guardians: Demon Purge takes the "cute girl" look and graduates to "sexy woman" with longer hair, bigger wings, longer tail, and even curvier horns.
  • God Eater: Venus resembles a beautiful, horned red-haired woman... seated atop a hideous mishmash of Aragami.
  • Goosebumps HorrorTown: Ellie and her demon minions in the Valentine's at Poison Lake event. Although being a kids game, they are a more toned down example, with no direct sexual references.
  • Grandia II: Millenia is an aspect of an evil god who takes the form of an attractive young woman, and immediately sets her sights on Ryudo, even trying to molest him magically.
  • The demon girls from Helltaker could all qualify, but it's played the straightest with Lucifer, the CEO of Hell. Much like the other Cute Monster Girls, Lucifer is a Badass in a Nice Suit, designed to invoke the creator's Author Appeal of ladies in suits. Lucifer is something of a Tsundere, but she's presented as a very attractive and confident woman. In the game's ending, she's also shown to be the one who helps out the Helltaker the most in his day-to-day life.
  • Honkai Impact 3rd:
    • Umbral Rose's alternate costume Dusky Murmurs has a succubus theme, as it's mostly black, is one of her most revealing outfits, has bat wings mounted on the skirt and a bat decoration on the headdress, and changes the rosy trails of her dodge move and scythe swings into bats. Its Flavor Text mentions travelers disappearing in the woods and a survivor hearing "a soft gentle murmur before a hellish encounter".
    • Lightning Empress has a succubus-themed alternate costume, Eventide Phantom. Its flavor text also plays into the theme, referring to a demoness who "would taunt her hunter or lure her prey with silvery laughter".
  • Huniepop 2: Jewn sports this appearance, having two horns, bat-like wings and a typical pointy tail. This contrasts with Moxie who has a more angelic appearance.
  • League of Legends: Evelynn is a seductive sadist who clearly isn't human and her lashers evoke the whip-like tails that modern succubi are never seen without. She's also explicitly called a demon; as well as the three other demon champions (Fiddlesticks, Tahm Kench and Nocturne), Legends of Runeterra also gives her a small clique of lesser lust demons like herself who recognise her as the strongest among them: Sultur and his partner Vora, Domination, Solitude and Steem. All of them can be seen together in their shadowy demon forms in her level 2 card art
  • Mid-Fight Masses: Sarvente's demon form (aka Lucifer form) has her wearing a leotard which shows her thighs off and also has a heart-shaped Cleavage Window.
  • Paladins: The Infernal skin turns Seris into a red-skinned, scantily clad succubus who talks in a sultry tone and drops innuendos that would make Skye and Fernando blush. She's also a Combat Sadomasochist and is particularly interested in Fernando.
  • Phantasy Star Online 2es: Bluesy Rhapsody very definitely gives this impression. Replete with the horns, the tail, and extremely suggestive pose.
  • Pokemon Girls Hunter: Norma gets corrupted into one after the rest of the Guardians get ahold of her after her defection, turning her into a blue-skinned demon creature so obsessed with sex that she can’t even think properly unless she’s literally screwed into submission.
  • Princess & Conquest: The Desert Princess has a chance to appear in a more devilish form, depending on the state of her territory.
  • Princess Maker 2: It's possible for the player character's daughter to become the Princess of Darkness. She literally defeats Lucifon and takes his place, and given her Head-Turning Beauty status, this trope is played straight.
  • Subverted by Jezebel in Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. Jezebel is the daughter of Satan, and very attractive, but she is not particularly overtly sexy. She comes across more as a red-skinned, goat-horned Disney princess than a more conventional succubus-type.
  • Shadowverse: Available as a few of Bloodcraft's followers. For instance, Lilith (a cute girl with bat wings and horns) and Succubus (a very busty woman with horns, bat wings, and skimpy clothes).
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey:
    • Louisa Ferre is what happens when Lucifer is portrayed as a mysteriously seductive blond woman. Also, for the ladies, Louis Cypher of the other SMT games looks like a dead ringer for David Bowie, which, given his real-life sex symbol status, makes him very desirable regardless of one's preferences.
    • Lucifer takes on a female disguise again in Shin Megami Tensei IV: a schoolgirl named Hikaru. She fuses with Walter in the endings of the game, though it's only explicitly shown that she's Lucifer in the Chaos ending.
  • Smite: Da Ji's Deadly Desire skin gives her this appearance, but personality-wise she's a dominatrix.
  • Softporn Adventure: The Game Over screen in Las Vegas shows a demonic naked woman who holds a pitchfork and has glowing red eyes, sitting on a fat green demon.
  • Soul Tide: Satya is a demon with a voluptuous body she doesn't seem to mind showing. Bonus points for her first skillset being Fire-themed.
  • Total War: Warhammer III: Slaanesh's daemons embody this trope. From the Daemonettes to the Keepers of Secrets, all of Slaanesh's daemons are alluringly seductive and evocative of androgynous beauty but can morph into sadistic killers if they need to.
  • Touhou Kanjuden ~ Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom introduces Hecatia Lapislazuli, goddess of the three hells (Earth, Moon and Spirit World)...who's an attractive Perky Goth.
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE: Kiria's Carnage Form outfit is simultaneously form-fitting and very revealing, and has a little devil-tail.
  • Trials of Mana: Angela's Spellbinder class costume in the remake invokes this, featuring skimpy dark clothing and horns.
  • Um Jammer Lammy: The original version of "Taste of Teriyaki" has lyrics like "the angel's been very mean to me" and "if I could have another wish, I want the devil to join my next dish". The US version changed these lyrics to refer to "my friend" and "a man," respectively.
  • Wings of Vi: Myougi and her mother Azurel are both attractive-looking demonesses with quite sizable chest areas.

    Web Animation 
  • The God And Devil Show: The Devil is a beautiful woman. She and God are hosts of a talk show.
  • Lucia of Satina. Queen of Hell (The North American branch), 30 feet tall and very curvy. And as Dave can attest, very hot. It's lampshaded in one short when Lucia discovers people call her 'thicc'.
    Lucia: So tell me, Dave. Am I thicc? With two C's?
    Dave: Yeah.
  • Helluva Boss:
    • Verosika is a demon with one of the sexiest designs among the cast and an incredibly sexual personality, quite fitting for a literal succubus.
    • Millie is a Cute Monster Girl with a very feminine look and Hartman Hips that looks like an archetypal demon.
  • hololive: Choco has pointy ears, bat wings at her back, and two prominent horns sprouting from her head, as is often found in Western depictions of devils and demons. She has stated on many occasions that she's NOT actually a succubus though, but simply a demon, albeit a very attractive one.

  • Satan from Casey and Andy is a definite example - even though she loves him too, she's still Satan, and she doesn't play favorites...much. On at least a couple of occasions, she's seen subjecting the (frequently-dead) C&A to the torments of hell, answering Andy's complaints with "Waddaya want from me? I'm evil!"
  • In Jack, the devil appears to the reader in the form of the cartoonist, but to Jack, it seems he appears as a woman since Jack refers to the devil as "she."
  • Narbonic, although justified in that the demon pulled the shape from Dave's fantasies. Further, it's later implied that the Devil herself is female.
  • The pair of succubi captured by The Mistress in Oglaf. One of Ivan's daily tasks is to oil down their bodies so they don't get dried out by their literal hotness. The Mistress further enchants Ivan's ejaculate to come alive and tattle on him if he masturbates, so not to injure himself should they inspire excessive sexual fantasies on his part.
  • Undead Ed: The Devil's Secretary, Lucy, is a curvaceous humanoid with pointy ears and small horns coming out of her temples wearing form-fitting woman's business attire.
  • The Greenhouse: The demon 'Red' starts as little more than an anthropomorphized red mist, but as the comic goes on, becomes increasingly solid and feminine in appearance... plus horns and a somewhat prehensile tail. From the way she describes her abs while they're disintegrating after her bond with Mica was severed, she might be intentionally shaping her body to be attractive.
    Red: I like where this form is going!

  • In the opening of the Animaniacs episode "Hot Bothered and Bedeviled", we see three demons who look like beautiful women in red suits with little red horns and devil tails (based on the musical group the Andrews sisters) who sing about the tortures of Hell in a humorous manner.
  • Also occasionally parodied with the Red Guy in Cow and Chicken, who actually was explicitly the devil in the pilot (though this was quietly dropped in later episodes). Though nothing about this pudgy nude big-nosed devil who walked around on his butt cheeks could be considered conventionally sexy in any sense of the word, he certainly believed himself to be hot and acted as such. Especially when "Cleopantsless" shows up...
  • Gravity Falls: Pyronica gives off these vibes, being a voluptuous demoness who's associated with fire. She's a more G-rated variant, though. She never gets around to seducing or really talking much to anybody. And she's definitely a...Butter Face, to put it lightly.
  • Hazbin Hotel: While more on the beautiful side rather than seductive,Charlie's appearance is that of a slim, tall, and beautiful young woman with platinum blonde hair and round eyes. It is even creepily mentioned in universe by Adam as he calls her "Lilith's little hottie" showing that even he finds her attractive despite being a demon.
  • Parodied in The Powerpuff Girls (1998) with HIM, who while never explicitly stated to be the devil certainly walks the walk and talks the talk. He dresses hot as hell with a pink tulle dress and thigh-high lady's boots but with the way he looks and acts it lands somewhere between being fabulous and frigging unsettling rather than being sexy.
  • In an episode of The Shnookums & Meat Funny Cartoon Show, Shnookums and Meat are told they have to do one good deed or they'll go to Hell. After just barely succeeding, they see that Hell is full of sexy devil girls. Now desperate to get into Hell, they dive in. The devil girls then change form to a pair of incredibly ugly dates that Shnookums and Meat had stood up earlier in the episode.
  • Star vs. the Forces of Evil: Many of the female students (including Star) at Echo Creek Academy find Tom, the demon prince of the underworld, attractive. One of them even whispered that "He's hot" out loud when seeing him.
  • Ugly Americans: Callie is a Head-Turning Beauty who's a seductive half-succubus.

Elizabeth Hurley's Devil - Bedazzled

The devil reveals her ability to change form, but prefers to appear as an alluring woman rather than the 'trick or treat' red demon.

How well does it match the trope?
