This is a very cute and unique little design.  A little devil heart with horns and a tail.

This isn’t really a mythological or supernatural kind of devil but it’s still technically a devil and it certainly looks pretty evil.  The colour of the paper definitely helps with that but it’s really an excellent design.

Here’s a more traditional sort of demonic looking Devil Queen.  You can’t really see it in this photo but it’s got a very long thick tail.

Minotaurs are kind of demon-like and Satoshi Kamiya has designed an awesome looking origami minotaur.

Here’s Satoshi Kamiya’s minotaur again this time holding a giant club which is actually a seashell but still looks pretty cool.

Here’s another very angry looking version of the minotaur.  It’s very interesting to see how multiple people can fold the same model but have it have such a different look or pose.

This is technically the Divine Dragon Bahamut from the video game series Final Fantasy but this one looks especially evil and Dark Bahamut like because of the paper used although I think those red eyes are technically tiny triangles from another sheet of paper…  It still looks awesome though.

I love how evil this owl looks solely based on the colours of the paper used.

This fallen angel model is incredible.  I don’t really have much else to say about it other than I can’t imagine how much work went into designing and folding it.

This is the Balrog from the Lord of the Rings.  Not only does it look awesome but I love the paper.  潘杭 folded this with orange paper and the coloured it with black ink to make it look like stone with fire inside.  The effect certainly looks amazing.
