Satan in Devilman Crybaby

Satan (サタン Satan?), also known as Lucifer (ルシファー Rushifā?) based on the Biblical figure of the same name, is an angel who appears in several versions of the Devilman franchise, usually as the main antagonist. Satan spends most of the original manga and its direct adaptations in the disguise of the human named Ryo Asuka (飛鳥了 Asuka Ryō?). Satan is the most notable manga character not to be included in the 70s anime, but does have a counterpart in the form of Iwao Himura. The two are sometimes combined in later retellings of the story.
