Satan (Passion of the Christ)
Satan is one of the main antagonists in the controversial film The Passion Of The Christ and is depicted as a more spiritual menace than his stereotypical appearance as a satyr-like monster in modern culture - in fact in the film Satan is depicted as a being that is hard to place in terms of gender (though the role was played by a woman) or power and is ghostlike in mannerism.

He is implied to be the one who possessed Judas to betray Jesus at the hands of the Pharisees. He tries to distract Jesus while he prays at Gethsemane, watches sadistically as Jesus is whipped 39 times with the cat-o-nine-tails (while holding a demonic child) and follows Jesus through the crowd as the Christ walks to his death. He also sends several of her demons to torment Judas after the 12th disciple betrays Jesus, which leads to his suicide by hanging from the rope used to lead the donkey that carried Jesus to Jerusalem. After Jesus' death and the destruction of the Temple (as Jesus had prophesied), Lucifer returns to Hell and screams in anger at his defeat.
