From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Satan or The Devil is the (usually horned) personification of evil in Human mythology and religion.

Profile

Other, similar horned gods appear in the lore of other races such as the Draconians and the Kaleds, the latter having a horned god of war. (DW: The Satan Pit) Several beings seem likely candidates for the inspiration of this myth. The Doctor believed that Sutekh had called himself several names, including Satan (DW: Pyramids of Mars)

The Dæmons, a horned race from the planet Dæmos, also had similarities to the Human concept of Satan (DW: The Dæmons), as did the Greek Immortal Hades, a supposed lord of the underworld. (PDA: Deadly Reunion)

The Beast said that he was the origin of Satan, and all similar entities on all worlds. The Doctor referred to him as the truth behind the myth, although the Doctor himself found the Beast, in particular his claim to have existed before the universe, a challenge to his own belief system. (DW: The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit)

The Devil, in the various human cultures and religions of Earth, is a supernatural entity who is considered to be the personification of evil. Different cultures have given the Devil a variety of names, including Satan, Asmodai, Beelzebub, Lucifer, and Mephistopheles among others. In addition to the Devil of Earth mythology, a number of alien cultures had similar beliefs in an evil being similar to the devil.

Satan was a major character in John Milton's Paradise Lost, who famously said, "Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven." Satan's choice was cited by Khan Noonien Singh (TOS episode: "Space Seed") and by an alternate universe version of Sonya Gomez. (SCE eBook: Lost Time)

When first meeting with James T. Kirk in 2268, the Klingon Kang told Kirk that the Klingons had no devil, but they were quite aware of the habits of the human devil. (TOS episode: "Day of the Dove")

The being known as Lucifer was later proved to be based on an actual person. The Megan, Lucien, visited Earth during the early 17th century, he barely escaped Earth with his life while other Megans who visited the planet were executed in the aftermath of the Salem Witch Trials. Lucien would be recorded in human history as the entity Lucifer. In the 23rd century, the USS Enterprise visited Megas-Tu and met Lucien and the Megan race. It was then they learned the full story behind the Witch Trials. (TAS episode: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu") Much later, Kirk's crew met a race called the Danons, who were revealed to have also played a part in Earth's development of a Devil figure. (TOS novel: Devil World)

Delcara once told Captain Jean-Luc Picard that she was the "Guardian Angel of the Damned." Picard replied that Satan was the guardian angel of such people. (TNG novel: Vendetta)

In the 24th century, a female con artist learned that the Ventaxian mythological being known as Ardra was expected to return soon. She studied the legend of Ardra very carefully, and appeared when Ventaxian legend said Ardra would reappear. During her encounters with the crew of the USS Enterprise-D, she tried to convince the crew that she was also the Devil and the Klingon entity Fek'lhr. (TNG episode: "Devil's Due")

The Devil is, in many cultures, the central embodiment of evil usually referenced as a rebellious demon who is the enemy of God. Amongst his many names, he has been called Satan, the "Prince of Darkness," Beelzebub, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, and most commonly, the Devil (in some literature implying that amongst a myriad of devils, he is the primary). In many cultures, he is recognized in visual form as having been derived from the Greek gods Pan and Dionysus in appearance and modus operandi.

As seen in episode 420 of The Muppet Show in a recreation of the Charlie Daniels Band song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," the Devil challenges Johnny to a fiddling match. The stakes are Johnny's soul against the Devil's fiddle of gold. After a volley of hickory stump plucking, the Devil admits defeat and vanishes in a puff of smoke.

"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" could be viewed as a variation on a Russian folk tale/parable set to music in 1918 by composer Igor Stravinsky, entitled Histoire du soldat. The essential difference between the two versions is that in "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" the protagonist wins, whereas in "The Soldier's Tale", the protagonist loses.

The Devil also appears as the former scorned lover of an angel in the song "You're No Good" in the same episode.

It was also implied that the Devil is Alice Cooper's boss in episode 307, and that the guest star is trying to recruit lost souls for his master. After Alice fails to win Miss Piggy over to the dark side, it becomes clear that the Devil does not pay commissions on hourly rentals. In the final moments of the closing number, "School's Out," Alice sheds his cap and gown to reveal himself dressed as the Devil himself in a torn, red leotard replete with pointy tail, top hat, and pitchfork.

The Devil is an enemy in the game Final Fantasy VI. When it is left alone, it uses L.3 Muddle, L.4 Flare, and L.5 Doom at will, which can be devastating if party members are at the wrong levels. It also has high Magic Defense and Auto-Reflect, so physical attacks, specials, and Ultima are the best way to defeat it.
