Astaroth is one of the main antagonists in the Ghosts 'n Goblins franchise created by Capcom, being the most recurring demon emperor, appearing as a final boss from Ghosts 'n Goblins and reappearing in other games as a boss near the end of Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, and Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins.
He is the evil, merciless ruler of Demon Realm in his master Lucifer's stead and is apparently based on Astaroth, a Crowned Prince of Hell in demonology.
