Devilman Wiki

The Demon Tribe was the antagonistic force of the original 'Devilman' anime. They were led by the Demon Lord Zennon and his generals, located in the Ice Kingdom, located deep within the caverns of the Himalayas.


The Demon tribe was led by the great demon Zennon and his Generals Zannin, Muzan and Lacock. Zennon planned to enslave humanity and take back the world for the demon race, whom he saw as usurpers. When young Akira Fudo and his father accidentally wander into their domain, Zennon murders them and calls upon his three bodyguards, Devilman, Rerasu and Daruni, to do battle for the right to take over the now deceased body of Akira. Devilman wins after a violent fight and is sent to act as an infiltrator and scout for the Demon Tribe, with orders to spread discord and chaos among humanity.

Devilman leaves, but it takes less than a day for him to betray the demon race, after falling for a human girl named Miki Makimura. Zennon retaliates sending demon upon demon in a futile attempt to defeat Devilman, each time ending in failure.
