- Azazel (アザゼル Azazeru?)
- Voiced by: Masaya Onosaka
- A dog-like demon who is the title character. He is a pervert who gets never-ending enjoyment in sexually harassing others, especially Sakuma. He is also deathly afraid of Akutabe, who tends to abuse him when he gets out of line or fails to accomplish a goal. His ability is called Lewdness, which gives him the ability to incite lust. His powers range from making people attractive, unattractive, and even cause impotence. When Akutabe ended their contract, he became contracted with Sakuma much to her chagrin.
- He represents 'Lust' of the seven deadly sins.
- Rinko Sakuma (佐隈 りん子 Sakuma Rinko?)
- Voiced by: Rina Satō
- Rinko Sakuma is the young female assistant of Akutabe. Young and naive, she is just starting to learn about the power of demons. She is bound in a contract with Azazel. She appears to be one of the more moral people in the series early on, but as she learns more about demons, she becomes considerably darker. Many of the demons note she is becoming more like Akutabe. She is also easily influenced by money. Azazel's nickname for her is Saku-chan (サクちゃん?).
- Akutabe (芥辺 Akutabe?)
- Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa
- Akutabe is a detective that specializes in using demons. He is very knowledgeable in the occult, and uses this knowledge to overpower the demons, even enabling him to block a powered up Divulgence spell from Beelzebub. He is Sakuma's employer as well as a mentor. He will summon demons to do his bidding and will often mistreat them if they annoy him or mess up their assignments. He has shown to be cruel and rather sadistic causing even demons to be afraid of him.
- Beelzebub (ベルゼブブ Beruzebubu?)
- Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya
- A childhood friend of Azazel who is a part of an elite family of demons. Despite appearing to be a bird, he is actually a fly demon who eats feces much to the disgust of those around him. He also has an ability called Divulgence which gives him the power to make others reveal their hidden selves ranging from revealing the side of them they don't want people to see, to forced defecation. He can also use goat dung as a doping drug, making his attacks considerably more powerful. Azazel's nickname for him is Bēyan (べーやん?).
- He represents 'Gluttony' of the seven deadly sins.
- Salamander (サラマンダー Saramandā?)
- Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai
- Salamander is a red lizard like demon who was originally summoned by an amateur for personal, selfish reasons. Because the summoner was uneducated, Salamander dominated his spirit. Salamander has an ability called Revolution which makes people believe their own words when they say things they don't truly believe. He always carries a Katana that is strapped to his waist. Azazel's nickname for him is Manda-han (マンダはん?).
- He represents 'Greed' of the seven deadly sins.
- Undine (アンダイン Andain?)
- Voiced by: Yū Kobayashi
- Undine is a mermaid demon, with the ability to take on human form. She has fallen in love with Akutabe much to his chagrin. Her ability is Jealousy, which makes it so that whenever she is jealous of another woman for whatever reason, she is able to transform that woman with her will. When she is happy, these curses are undone.
- She represents 'Envy' of the seven deadly sins.
- Moloch (モロク Moroku?)
- Voiced by: Tesshō Genda
- A bull like demon under Akutabe's control. According to Azazel and Beelzebub, he is the most violent demon in Hell and both are evidently scared of him, especially when he is angered. Akutabe praises him as a demon on a higher league than his other demons and explained that he has the ability called Violence though what it does is unknown. He was apparently killed when Sariel took his grimoire to heaven. His nickname is Mossan (モッさん?).
- He represents 'Wrath' of the seven deadly sins.

- Gusion (グシオン Gushion?)
- Voiced by: Noboru Yamaguchi
- A winged monkey like demon who was one of Solomon's 72 demons. He is contracted with Kōtarō whom the later sacrificed the memories of his grandfather to form a contract with him. His special ability is called Forgetfulness. This ability allows him to eat the memories of others, especially fond memories.
- He represents 'Sloth' of the seven deadly sins.
- Sariel (サリエル Sarieru?)
- Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao
- An angel sent to collect grimoires of demons. Due to a strict law imposed on angels, he cannot help mortals in need despite his righteous nature and can only act as an observer. Also of note is that they cannot help even themselves if a human is the one tormenting them. The only time angels are permitted to help humans is if a demon is involved, in which case they will take its grimoire back to heaven. He steals Moloch's grimoire and takes it to heaven, killing the latter in the process.
- Zeruel (ゼルエル Zerueru?)
- Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara
- Another angel sent to collect grimoires. Like Sariel, he is a hypocrite as an angel, spending years climbing mountains and watching porn, waiting till the last minute to do his duties. He tried to steal Beelzebub's grimoire, but failed and became a fallen angel.
- Kiyoko (キヨコ?)
- Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya
- A pink dog-like demon similar in style to Azazel, she is an occasional lover of his that believes that the two of them are married due to their physical relationship.

Refusing to go back without having a task given to him, Rinko allows Azazel to wash the windows. She later tries to summon Beelzebub, but summons Moloch instead. Moloch is at first shocked by his shrunken state, but Azazel explains that there is an Anti-Demon barrier that reduces their power dramatically and turns them into small, cute, weakened animals. When Moloch demands a tribute for being summoned, Rinko presents him with curry. Insulted by the tribute, he begins to punish Rinko by turning her into a cow. Luckily, Akutabe arrives and makes Moloch accept the tribute by having him eat it, turning Rinko back to normal. When he is shocked to find it is beef curry, he returns to Hell crying with Azazel trying to comfort him.

Not seeing it happening, Rinko uses Azazel's ability to make him irresistible to women and become number one host. Azazel soon realizes because of the guy's stupidity, he could use him to leave the agency. The next day, Azazel tricks Seiya to steal his grimoire from the agency. With Akutabe gone on a three day case on the other side of the world, Rinko is forced to rely on Beelzebub for help. He explains that since the grimoire was stolen, she has two days to get it back or she will be cursed by the grimoire and her ties with demons will be severed. He at first is unwilling to help until Rinko points out that if their contract is terminated, he'll have to go back to working with Akutabe who treats him far worst. They find Seiya and Azazel at a club seducing women and gaining power thanks to Azazel's ability of inciting lust. Rinko tries to convince Seiya to giver her back her grimoire, even showing him Okada who was turned into an iguana for abusing the power of the grimoire. Unfortunately, Seiya is too incompetent to understand the severity of his situation. They try to use force but are captured. As Azazel and Seiya celebrate their success, the later goes to defecate, but does not have toilet paper, so he uses a page of the grimoire. For desecrating the grimoire, he is turned into a praying mantis leaving Azazel unable to use his powers. Rinko soon gets free and once again has Azazel's grimoire back. She then punishes Azazel with a curse that causes him to explode, much to the horror of Beelzebub who realizes she is slowly becoming like Akutabe.|
