Top 10 Diabolical Anime Demons

For this list, we’re looking at anime characters that can be categorized as demons or devils in their respective series. They could be heroes, villains, Humanoid or monstrous as long as they are demonic in some way shape or form.

10. Rin Okumura – Blue Exorcist

You know you’re having an exceptionally bad day when you find out you’re the son of Satan. Raised by Humans in a religious household, Rens life literally went to hell when dear old dad paid him a visit.
This led to the death of his foster parents and set him on the path to becoming an exorcist. So he may one day get revenge on his father. Despite his Demonic heritage, Ren has a kind heart and formed a strong group of friends in his time at the true cross academy.
But don’t let that fool you when he unleashes that sword of his you are in for a world of hurt.

9. Rias Gremory – High School DxD

When you think of devils chances are the images of a horned beast coated in flames comes to mind. Well, not at this high school where the free-roaming denizens of hell are as voluptuous as can be.

The head of the occult club, Rias is certainly no weakling as her power of destruction more than proves. She is most notably the master of formerly deceased student Issei, who she resurrected as a devil to act as her servant and she eventually becomes his primary love interest.

8. Xellos – Slayers

Demons are typically mischievous who harm as much as they help and Xellos is no exception. As the sole servant of the greater beasts, Xellos has powers well beyond that of ordinary beings.

Evident when he managed to wipe out a whole clan of dragons in a single breath. Despite being such a threat, Xellos has been known to occasionally assist our hero Miss Lina and the others of his own accord.

Known as the trickster priest for his mischievous nature there is no doubt that he’ll annoy you to no end. But if you try to square up to him expect a swift and thorough ass whooping.

7. Satan – The Devil is a Part-Timer!

Has there ever been a more hilarious concept than the prince of darkness working at a fast food restaurant? After escaping to Modern-day Tokyo, Satan takes on a human guise and makes a living as an assistant shift manager in order to get by.

While he isn’t without his hellish powers, which often flare up when surrounded by the despair of others, He slowly begins to use them for good. Through his conflicts with the beautiful hero Emmy, Fellow Demons, Archangels, and angry customers you’ll find yourself oddly warming up to the king of hell.

6. Nine-Tailed Fox – Naruto

From the Get-go, It was made pretty clear that this massive beast was not to be messed with. Imprisoned inside our titular Hero since birth, the strongest of the tailed beasts served as both a passive Antagonist as well as a secondary source of power for Naruto to tap into. The result of which could be devastating when the Fox took control of the Ninjas body for himself.

The later Series only proved just how destructive it would be when both Demon and Shinobi joined forces resulting in some of the most out-Of-this-World Ninjutsu you’ll ever see.

5. Natsu Dragneel – Fairy Tail

As if this guy doesn’t have an impressive enough resume he can add actual Demon to the list right beside Dragon Slayer and overall badass a mage of the Fairy Tail guild. Natsu has always been a defender of the weak even if he’s not exactly the brightest ball and a bit of a hothead to boot.

Later on of the series, It’s revealed that he’s actually an Etherius, A demon created to serve as a weapon. Raised by a dragon, well-versed in Dragon’s Lair Magic the brother of the evilest mage to have ever lived as well as having Demonic origins. All we can say is the folks of Earth land must be relieved he’s on their side.

4. Nosferatu Zod – Berserk

So, do you like your demons vicious bloodthirsty and scary as hell? Then say hello toZodd the immortal, an apostle that endlessly wanders battlefields in search of worthy opponents. He’s killed more than his fair share over the centuries.

His size and brute strength are normally enough to tear through most humans he encounters, safe for Guts who just barely manages to wound him. Of course, the hulking mass of muscle is just a visage for his true form which is altogether terrifying and something that not even one hundred man Slayer and general Griffith combined can stand up to.

Bottom line, Don’t mess with Zod.

3. Hiei – Yu Yu Hakusho

Don’t let his size fool you, this resident of the Demon world can slice you apart six ways from Sunday. While originally thinking very little of humanity before his meeting with Yusuke Urameshi, his initial defeat led to him and his suave companion Kurama joining up with the spirit detective against all manner of otherworldly enemies.
While he learned to tolerate humans Hiei is no less merciless when it comes to battle aside from his impressive sword skills his control over The Dragon of the darkness flame and his true form will most certainly leave lasting impressions of pain should you cross him.

2. Sebastian – Black Butler

There’s no doubt that he’s one hell of a butler. After making a pact with the young Ciel Phantomhive in exchange for his soul. This demon takes the form of the perfect English gentleman whose skill range encompasses practically everything under the sun.

Loyal to his young master in all his pursuits, Sebastian will not only make you the best cup of tea you’ve ever had, but he will also take out an entire room of hired guns with nothing but kitchenware. Even angels fall to the Devilish talents of this butler so as long as you are on your best behavior he’ll be utterly charming.

1. Inuyasha – Inuyasha

Every dog has his day and this hybrid of human and Yokai certainly got his. After being freed of his bonds by Kagome, Inuyasha joined with her on his quest to gather the lost shards of the legendary Shikon Jewel.

Originally wanting nothing more than to find the jewel and use its power to turn himself into a full-fledged Demon his journey with his comrades and developing affection for Kagome eventually convinced him otherwise. Watching him finally settle into his own skin and find happiness despite his origins is wholly satisfying and of course watching him battle against the villainous Naraku doesn’t hurt either.
