The ability to be a manifestation of and/or have the traits of the Devil. Not to be confused with Transcendent Demon Physiology or Devil Soul. Opposite to Godly Incarnation.

Also Called

  • Lord/Lady of Evil
  • King/Prince/Queen/Princess of Darkness
  • Satan/The Devil Incarnate
  • Satanic Physiology
  • Supreme Demon King
  • Ultimate Evil Being


The user of this power either is or merely has the traits of the ultimate evil being known in Christianity as The Devil and/or Satan/Lucifer. Unlike Devil Soul, the user is allowed to truly become the embodiment of all evil and use his power as they see fit.

This power can be achieved by either being possessed by Satan, having a blood-tie to him, fusing with his essence or just being the greatest force of evil in the user's existence. Ultimately, this power grants the user of the archetype of Satan: the ultimate evil being, so the user could be a mythological god and still have this power. Other times, users fall from grace and become evil rulers. The power functions as an archetype, so even if the user is not the actual Satan, he or she represents him in his or her existence (ie The White Witch) and therefore does not wield the full power of the archetype.




  • Weak against Holy Powers.
  • Can be rivaled by users of Godly Incarnation.
  • May be driven insane and lose their humanity altogether.
  • May be limited by a higher being, such as a god; unless the being is a god as well but of either an equal or higher caliber.
  • May be mistaken for the actual devil or possession by the devil.
  • Any form of redemption from the user voids the power altogether.
