Astaroth Images

Astaroth (アスタロト Asutaroto), also known as The King of Rot (腐の王 Kusa no Ō), is one of the Eight Demon Kings.

Appearance

Astaroth's appearance 16 years ago

Astaroth looks like a possessed human wearing a dark suit. He covers his head with a paper bag, from which mushrooms are sprouting from the top and the mouth. That mask makes it impossible to know how old his body is. Years later, when appearing in the modern day, he no longer seems to have a human vessel, instead merely appearing as a patch of demonic mushrooms, one of which having four eyes.[1]

Personality

Very little has been seen of Astaroth's personality thus far. He is a demon of few words. Upon meeting Satan, Astaroth bows to him, as Lucifer pledges their allegiance to their father. He will loyally follow and serve the Demon God.
