It’s fun to beat the fuck out of both the strong and the weak, you know. I have this thing called overwhelming violence since I was born. That’s why I love going on a rampage.

–Gressil to Tobio Ikuse, True Volume 3, SLASHDOG. To Become an Irregular Blade Of Endless Night at the Limits of the Dim and Distant


Gressil was one of the hundred thousand artificial Devils that were created by Hades using the flesh of Lilith and the Book of Lucifer.


Gressil is a young man about two meters tall giant with black hair.


Gressil enjoys fighting strong opponents and causing damage to others in order to show his power. After winning his matches in the Rating Game tournament, Gressil started to become more arrogant in order to prove his superiority, which made him far rougher than Balberith.


Gressil was born in the Realm of the Dead, created by Hades with Lilith’s flesh in order to use him for his army in opposition to D×D. At some point, he joined Team Black Satan of Darkness Dragon King under the leadership of Zeno to participate in the Azazel Cup.

Powers & Abilities

Immense Demonic Power: A special case among the hundred thousand Devils created by Lilith, Gressil’s demonic power is above Satan-class and he has the potential to become a Super Devil.

  • Resistance (耐性, Taisei): Gressil’s signature ability that gives him a nigh-impregnable resistance to any damage he experiences, potentially working even on Ddraig's Penetrate had Gressil the chance to receive it. While it could turn Gressil resistant to numerous attacks in one go if they had the same aura, Tobio Ikuse could counter it by continuously changing the aura wavelengths of his blades.

Immense Strength: Gressil’s strength has been proven he was able to defeat Ultimate-class Devils and several Low-class Gods in their Rating Games in the Azazel Cup. In True Volume 3, even with a limiter on, Gressil was able to fight on par with Issei in his Cardinal Crimson Promotion armor (a Satan-class combatant himself) and Akeno. Later, after releasing his limiter, he was capable of briefly holding his own against Tobio in his Abyss Side Balance Breaker, who noted that Gressil quickly became stronger the more he fought despite eventually overwhelming him.

Immense Durability: Aside from his Resistance, Gressil is incredibly durable on his own. Without becoming weakened, he could take several attacks from Issei in his Cardinal Crimson Promotion and even Akeno's Holy Lightning, which has properties lethal to Devils.

Immense Speed: Gressil was fast enough to keep up with Issei using his Crimson Armor and could also dodge several attacks from Tobio in his Abyss Side Balance Breaker. Despite this, Issei described him as not being particularly fast (albeit this was Gressil with a limiter on).

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Despite lacking any proper training or experience, Gressil has shown to be a formidable combatant. Despite being a Power-type much like Issei and Xenovia, he's considered a genius as he was quickly able to adapt to and match Issei, an experienced hand-to-hand combatant, despite the latter initially outclassing Gressil due to his many openings.

Flight: Being a Devil, Gressil can fly using his devil wings,


  • Gressil's comes from the demon Gressil who was the third prince of Thrones, who tempts mankind with impurity.
