This is redo of an old thread back in old Anime Vice. (though, I made into a battle thread for some odd reason). Unfortunately, I didn't save the thread. Doing it completely from memory. Later on, I add more stuff like the Shonen Damsels and Dudes in Distress for fun. Trying to populate this forum with fun, cool stuff which will give folks new ideas for new threads. Plus, everyone is working hard, so we all need a break.
(I'll add some images later. Just working in the Wikia right now and taking a break here for a few minutes. Beware of mild spoilers. We won't put too much)
This is a broad definition so we have more interpretations. It's a character who has an inner demon or a physical demon that comes out, and that person cannot control him or herself once that he gives into the demon inside of their mind and soul.
Can you name some Shonen Demons we're missing?!

Seraph of the End (Owari no Seraph) - Yuichiro Hyakuya

Tokyo Ghoul - Ken Kaneki
Toriko - Toriko and his Oni Demons

Yami Marik and Yami Bakura (Yu-gi-oh) - Yami Marik is a split personality that manifested in Marik due to the abuse he took from his father in being a Gravekeeper. He's a sadistic psychopath who relishes in torturing his foes through Dark/ Shadow Games. Yami Bakura is the evil spirit within the Millennium Ring that often possesses Bakura in his own plans to collect the other Millennium items.
-Kazuma Yagami (Kaze no Stigma) - If angered enough, Kazuma enters into a psychotic state where the wind he controls turns black and he gains telepathic powers. However due to his unstable state, he loses accuracy and control over his powers.
-Any Nodos (Heroic Age) - Humans with the power to become a Nodos can enter a berserker state called Mental Chaos if they encounter one another. This causes them to blindly attack anyone regardless if they are ally or foe.

-Unicorn Gundam (Gundam Unicorn) - The titular Gundam has an alternate mode called Newtype Destroyer Mode that activates whenever it encounters a mech piloted by a Newtype. In this state, the Gundam's A.I. takes over control of the mech as it gains a significant boost in capabilities and will mercilessly go after any Newtype-piloted mech, regardless if it's ally or foe. The form can only be sustained for a short time as it puts a great mental strain on any Newtype pilot piloting it.
-Agumon and Guilmon (Digimon) - Both Digimon fell victim to Dark Digivolution where the negative emotions of their human partners caused them to evolve into corrupted forms who attacked both friend and foe alike, with Agumon becoming Skullgreymon and Guilmon becoming Megidramon.
-Ryu (Street Fighter franchise) - Under enough anger and stress, Ryu can become corrupted by the Satsui no Hadou to become an evil version of himself called Evil Ryu, where he becomes greatly stronger at the cost of his sanity and self-control.

I remember. The original theme was Inner demons and monsters. I had already named everyone mentioned here except Nura. Others were
Allen Walker (Noah) : D.Gray-Man Eren Yeagar (Titan) - Attack on Titan Toriko (Oni Demon) - Toriko Jin Mo-Ri (Monkey King) - The God of High School Goku (Oozaru) - DBZ Ken Kaneki (Ghoul) - Tokyo Ghoul Shokichi Komachi (Insects) - Terraformars
If we're counting Seinen Age (Nodos) Akira Fudo (Demon) - Devilman Shinichi Izumi (parasite) - Parasyte
Shounen -Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin)- When placed in a dire situation, Kenshin reverts to the Battousai, a more merciless and bloodlusted persona who is willing to kill any enemy threat that opposes him. -Inuyasha has two cases of this: the titular character himself and Suikotsu. If Inuyasha is separated from the Tetsusaiga and his life is in danger, his demon blood will take over and revert him to a berserk and bloodlusted state who can't discern between friend and foe. Suikotsu is a kind-hearted doctor with a darker persona being a bloodthirsty killer who happens to be a member of the seven-man band of assassins known as the Shichinintai (Band of Seven). -Any of the Claymores from the titular series run the risk of becoming Awakened Ones if they use up too much of their yoki. -Alleujah Haptism (Gundam 00)- Possesses a split persona named Halleujah who has a crazed love for killing. -Orson (Record of Lodoss War)- As a Berserker, Orson becomes influenced by a demon to enter a berserk state when angered where he can't discern between friend and foe while in his frenzy. -Ginji Amano (Getbackers)- Ginji's Raitei persona.
Seinen -Guts (Berserk)- His bloodlusted side manifests through a dark demonic personification known as the Beast. -Chise (Saikano)- Struggles to maintain her humanity against her evolving machine body which often manifests as a cold split personality with no regard for the lives that she wipes out. -Lucy (Elfen Lied)- If you read the manga, Nyuu isn't the only personality lurking within Lucy. A third personality exists within her that is a manifestation of the diclonius instincts with the desire to wipe out all of humanity. -Ikki Tousen- Fighters who are Shoryu possess horrifically powerful and berserk personas that manifest if they are in dire situations, notable case being main heroine Hakufu.
Shoujo- Yes, there are shoujo examples as well. -Hinoto (X/1999)- The dreamseer for the Dragons of Heaven has a darker persona that manifests within the dream world who desires to see the Dragons of Heaven fail in their conflict with the Dragons of Earth. She takes over Hinoto's body to manipulate the Dragons of Heaven to their demises.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
Dante (Devil May Cry) Don Slime (Toriko) Sai Akuto (Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou) Griffith (Berserk) Ryner Lute (Legend of Legendary Heroes) Azi-Dahaka (Mondaiji) Dark King (Pretty Cure) Lessa (Lessa) Mao Sadao (The Devil is a Part Timer) Yuto Kiba (High School DXD) Konron, Porno Diane, and Satan (Bastard!!) Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru (Inuyasha) Souichiro Nagi (Tenjou Tenge)
Didn't know who you brought up. Had to look up the name. Alpha was such a common name. The name "TOME" I found it. You are referring to Kirbopher15's web series. However, I can't include him since it's like Korra and RWBY. It's anime in "style" but not in "origin" I'm sorry.
Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.
Mar 20, 2020 17:28:01 GMT
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
