"Maybe you need the sun but to us it's just a nuisance. You see dear, we love darkness."
Lucifer in Dragon Ball: Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle

Lucifer (ルシフェル, Rushiferu; FUNimation "Lucifer") is a Vampire with vampirish tendencies.

Lucifer lived in Devil's Castle on the Devil's Hand mountain range and plotted to throw the world into eternal darkness and rule Planet Earth. His exact age was unknown, but he hinted that he could be at least five thousand years old. He led an army of Ogres who were completely loyal to him including Ghastel, a crimson Ogre who was a powerful warrior, and his hunchbacked servant (also known as Butler). Despite being ancient, Lucifer had kept up with the times and was quite modern. His castle contained computer equipment, a laser cannon, and a TV.

He possessed the Sleeping Princess, a massive jewel that can channel tremendous energies when bathed in the light of the full moon. Lucifer had done this for thousands of years, every moon increasing the gem's power.[citation needed]

Lucifer had two forms, though the change seemed more visual than anything else. He first appeared as a very handsome man, almost a bishonen, with large red irises, dark blue skin, and a hair style rather similar to that of Son Goku, though without the widow's peak. When he wished to intimidate or fight, his irises shrank away to almost nothing, leaving him with pinpoint pupils. He grew long fangs and his face became noticeably less soft. He dressed rather formally complete with a bowtie and a large necklace. He wore sunglasses whenever exposed to daylight. He was rather powerful and able to dodge or deflect a young Goku's blows effortlessly. He had a strong attack of his own, a scintillating scarlet sphere of energy that he could create and throw repeatedly.

Lucifer's master plan was to wait until the Sleeping Princess has absorbed enough energy, expose it to one final full moon, and use the resulting power to fuel a giant laser cannon which would destroy the Sun. He planned to then lead the planet's undead in the new world of eternal darkness.

On the very eve of his plan's fulfillment, his castle was crashed by Goku, Kuririn, Yamucha, Bulma, Puar, and Oolong. Separating Bulma from the others, he was able to charm her into being the guest of honor at the night's ceremony. What Bulma did not realize until it was too late though is that this consists of her blood being drained from her to be used as drinks when the monsters toast Lucifer's success.

Before this could happen, the others arrived. Lunch also appeared because she wanted to steal the Sleeping Princess. His army was able to subjugate them all and imprison them in a large wall of rock. He took Bulma to prepare to drain her blood and revealed his plan to her.

Goku looked at the full moon, became a Great Ape, and destroyed the wall of rock. The others managed to cut off his tail and together they assaulted the laser cannon. They were no match for Lucifer's power, however, and he triggered the laser cannon to destroy the Sun. Bulma screamed out to Goku what it was about to do and he blasted the cannon with his Kamehameha. This did not destroy the cannon, but did knock it off its foundation and point it straight at Lucifer. The cannon fired as he looked down the barrel and the massive energy wave killed him.

  • Lucifer has a few things in common with Dracula Man such as spikey hair, blue skin, pointed ears, and fangs.
  • In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, Slugg manages to use a giant cloud to block out the Sun rather than destroy it, though it causes the planet to briefly undergo a similar effect to what Lucifer plans for it when he destroys the Sun.
  • The "Human Racial Dictionary" in Dragon Ball: Daizenshū 7 states that Lucifer is a Makaioshin. This may be due to his name (Lucifer being an alternate name for Satan).
