In here he is a demon who sold his soul to God in exchange for power. He appears to Ryo Utsugi claiming to be king Herod the man who betrayed Jesus,in a napalm fire after his demon transformation and attack on the city to make him give up on defeating God. However Ryo isn't aware of the past of Dante at this time. After a conversation about Ryo being Dante and his heart being Dante's heart he attacks Ryo with his 100 demons. He melts his demon warriors on Ryo to trap him in their goo but somehow Ryo wasn't in the demon goo (despite it forming his exact shape) and he rips Zenon in half from behind. As he was dying Zenon told Ryo about how he wanted God to be defeated and to raise a demon army to beat God as well as saying reference about Maoh Satan, Adam and Eve before dying offscreen.
Demon Lord Dante (TV)Edit
The same as the manga happens here.
In here he seems to lead the demons but it turns out he works for Satan. In Devilman Manga Volume 2, Sirene asks him for the power to beat Devilman so he sends Kaim and some other demons to aid her. In dialogue with Satan, he fills in the missing plot of the Devilman manga near the end of Devilman Manga Volume 5. He is seen as Satan's giant dragon/hydra mount in the final battle (but its not revealed that its him until the last chapter of Violence Jack).
Devilman: The Demon BirdEdit
In the second offical OVA Zenon appeares ver breifly to send aid to help Sirene.
In here he is in his Devilman form and appears in the final ova for real(but in imagination fantasy's of Jinmen in earlier OVA's). In here he is separated into many different parts that are the Demon Cleaning Team that fixes things offscreen for the main characters(although demons cleaning up damage to keep the demon race a secret was mentioned in the Devilman manga). They merge together into the full Zenon form to face Devilman but Devilman takes the face piece and keeps it from forming with the others. He throws it out the flying fortress and Zenon chases after it and is not really seen again afterwards.
In here it is revealed that he was made into Zuba and the Slum King after the world got remade into the Violence Jack word with his face as Zuba and body as the Slum King (which is why he has no face under his samurai armour). After Violence Jack killed the Slum King Zuba returns and finds the King as healthy as ever. The King beheads Zuiba and then is surprised by seeing Ryo Asuka alive and unlimbless. Ryo turns Zuba's head and Slum King's body back into Zenon and flies away(with Zenon turning into the Yamata No Orochi demon)...only to be beaten by a reformed Devilman.
He appears in the manga later in the story. He's frozen at the lowest level of hell and is said to be Satan. Akira says that Zenon and Satan are one the same and can separate to it's original form. At the moment one of Zenon's face is missing and stating Ryo/Lucifer is in the real world.
Other Zenon appearancesEdit
- In the game/manga Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (魔界戦記ディスガイア2, Makai Senki Disugaia Tsū, lit. Netherworld Battle Chronicle: Disgaea 2) there is Overlord Zenon (魔王, 魔王神 ゼノン, Maou, or Maoushin Zenon lit. Demon Lord, or Demon King God Zenon) who is the main antagonist of the story. He is seen as a towering monster in the news that wreaks havoc across the netherworld, or a man with the appearance of Demitri Maximoff, but with blonde hair, and a mustache. At the end of the game we get to find out whom Overlord Zenon's true identity is. (You can spoil the surprise for yourselves.)
