Lucifer: The 10 Most Brutal Fight Scenes, Ranked | ScreenRant

Known for its clever humor and biblical lore mixed up in a police procedural, Lucifer offers a little bit for everyone. As the former (or current, depending on how you see it) King of Hell, Lucifer knows his way around inflicting pain and punishing the guilty. So while few and far between, the show offers a good amount of fight scenes that leave us in awe of celestial power and maybe fearful of Lucifer’s power.

Here are the 10 most brutal fight scenes of Lucifer, ranked.

10 Lucifer vs. Mazikeen – “Sympathy for the Goddess” (Season 2, Episode 17)

What happens when the two most emotionally constipated characters are pitted against each other? Absolute destruction.

Between Lucifer’s self-centeredness and Maze’s inability to express herself through words instead of fists, this fight among friends was a long time coming. The two brawl it out in the courtyard outside of Linda’s office. Unfortunately, this one’s intentionally interrupted by a commercial break and we just see the two bloodied up with an impressive wake of destruction around them. Seriously, they ruined a stone bench.

9 Mazikeen and Dan vs. Los X Gang – “O, Ye of Little Faith, Father” (Season 4, Episode 3)

Going off the books yet again, Dan recruits Maze’s help in going after the Los X Gang for intel. It takes some encouragement on Maze’s part, but the dynamic, deadly duo is quickly back in action. Last time, they set up the kidnapping of Perry Smith by the Russian gang. So naturally, they up the ante.

This time around, Dan takes his frustrations and grief out on Los X and we finally get to see our favorite Douche kick some butt. Yep, those muscles we saw in Season 2 come in handy. Maze also gives her seal of approval.

8 Amenadiel & Lucifer vs. Another Gang – “Take Me Back to Hell” (Season 1, Episode 13)

When the brothers work together, nothing can stop them. This is the first time we see the brothers on the same side and it is a sight to behold.

We get a nice glimpse of the brothers’ distinct fighting styles too. Lucifer is all flourish, but every action he makes is efficient and meant to cause the most damage with the minimal amount of effort. Amenadiel barges through like a tank, happily flaunting that celestial strength of his.

7 Maze vs. The Latin Kings – “Sweet Kicks” (Season 1, Episode 5)

We’re given more about Mazikeen’s backstory and purpose in this episode, that she was created as an assistant and bodyguard for Lucifer. Apparently, she can sense whenever Lucifer is in danger, track him, and then ward off anyone who wishes to cause him harm.

In the first major situation of Lucifer being in over his head, Mazikeen makes one Hell of an entrance. Once he realizes who’s causing all the maiming and destruction, Lucifer gleefully watches along and marvels at Maze’s cruelty. You can’t help but sympathetically wince along with Chloe.

6 Maze’s Escape – “A Devil of My Word”  (Season 3, Episode 24)

Waking up after being drugged and chained to a pipe would be tough for any human. Even Mazikeen seems to have met her match against what Cain can cook up. So really, it’s the more human part of Maze that shines through. In her desire to protect Linda, Maze fights her guard and stumbles out… only to come across a room full of Cain’s lackeys.

Though we don’t see the action for ourselves, Cain catches sight of the carnage later. Seeing as how Maze stumbles into Linda’s office half-dead but still ready to challenge any stragglers, she fought her little demon heart out.

5 Karaoke Bar Showdown – “‘Til Death Do Us Part” (Season 3, Episode 13)

Hello, drug dealers!

Tipped off on where to find the head of the Korean gang, Lucifer barges in ready to strike a deal and maybe bash in some skulls on the way down.

And the music that goes along with this scene is just perfect. The song, “Lucifer,” by K-pop group SHINee was actually released back in 2010. So either someone got really bored one day or the Lucifer crew does indeed have a K-pop nerd on it. Whatever the case, it made for a memorable and absolutely brutal one-man gang takedown.

4 LUX Throwdown – “Everything’s Okay” (Season 4, Episode 1)

After one of the best Tom Ellis covers to grace our screens, rife with fluid jump cuts to show the passage of time, we’re treated to our first Netflix battle to get the season started right. Good luck getting Creep by Radiohead out of your head.

Spurred by Lucifer’s inner turmoil, we’re treated to a very quick takedown. Like seriously, this maybe takes up the first five minutes of the episode, less if we take out the dialogue. That poor guy from the Season 2 premiere, he really needs to stop trying to go after Lucifer. Nothing good comes with holding a grudge against the Devil.

3 Lucifer vs. Cain – “A Devil of My Word” (Season 4, Episode 24)

The love triangle finally comes to a bloody end. Also because Amenadiel planted the seeds of doubt a little too far into Cain’s head. Now unwilling to give up his immortality, Cain is driven to desperate measures to reclaim his title as the original sinner. But shooting Chloe Decker is a big no-no in Lucifer’s books.

After bringing the detective to a safe place, Lucifer lets loose his wrath in a way we haven’t seen before. The wings. He fights with his wings and it’s awesome. And of course, we end with Lucifer’s first on-screen kill.

2 Lucifer vs. Amenadiel – “City of Angels” (Season 3, Episode 10)

This one’s more emotionally brutal than anything. Lucifer would’ve sat by and gone along with the original plan, but knowing even Amenadiel viewed him as the source of all evil? That’s a step too far. The fight is also an interesting character moment for the brothers. 

It can be read as Lucifer lashing out at Amenadiel, with Amenadiel ultimately taking the high road instead of stooping to the same level of pettiness. But it could also be Lucifer subconsciously trying to punish himself, knowing that he wouldn’t win. Either way, the blood goes flying in brutal slow-motion that leaves us all wincing in sympathy.

1 The Demons vs. Team Lucifer – “Who’s Da New King of Hell?” (Season 4, Episode 10)

Maze definitely wins as the most brutal fighter, period. When you’re trying to stop some demons from crowning a baby as their king, you have to fight fire with hellfire. Lucifer, Mazikeen, Eve, Amenadiel, and Chloe team up to take on a horde of demons and rescue baby Charlie from becoming the new King of Hell.

This sequence shows the most brutal takedowns the show has ever seen. Surprisingly, Lucifer doesn’t really get his hands dirty. But Mazikeen, the only sensible one (besides Chloe) who brought a knife to a fistfight, displays her full moveset. Slashing up someone’s face, throwing a knife into someone’s chest, breaking bones…the list goes on. And Eve and Chloe get some points too. After Chloe unloads a clip into a demon’s chest, she whacks them in the head with a pole. When they still don’t die, Eve slams her heel through their right eye. Yikes.

Exclusive Preview: Vertigo’s LUCIFER Finally Burns

The Lucifer series from DC/Vertigo is building to its big finish, and after millennia of tricking souls, the time has come for The Devil to finally give some payback to all the poor souls he’s fooled…

After the previous issue finally started pulling the disparate storylines of Lucifer, John Decker, Caliban and more into a clear Endgame, Lucifer #6 is making its titular hero answer for his past crimes. Our preview of Lucifer #6 shows how brutal that vengeance will get within seconds, but the damned souls complaining about their deals with The Devil may not get the victory they’re after. This is Lucifer, after all.

For now Lucifer stands united with what remains of Sycorax, trapped inside of her skull with the countless spirits encountered in these first pages. Meanwhile, back in the world of the living, Sycorax’s son Caliban is on the hunt for that very skull (keen to bring both his mother and Lucifer out of it). If only John Decker wasn’t moments away from shattering it into pieces…

Take a look at the preview pages below:

Even with so many storylines swirling, our preview highlights the two biggest strengths of the Lucifer series this far. The uncertain twists and turns of Lucifer’s journey back to the character he used to be, and how beautifully it is realized thanks to artists Sebastian Fiumara, Max Fiumara, and Dave McCaig. As thrilling as it may be to imagine Robert Johnson getting the chance to set Lucifer aflame for his devil’s bargain, or the other ‘victims’ taking a swing at him in weakened form, it’s still Lucifer who stands in the spotlight. It’s hard not to be on his side, since the morals of these stories was always to be careful what you wished for, not demonstrating how vindictive or deceptive Lucifer is once called upon.

More importantly, it is Lucifer shouting down these lost souls, engulfed in flames, that forms one of the most memorable scenes of the series. With the flames seeming to have burned away his scars and wounds by the final panel, and his command of these past acts, bargains, and fools, this scene may also prepare readers for the return of Lucifer – in his youthful, strong appearance fans have long known. But to find that out readers will have to wait for the full issue releasing this Wednesday. Until then, take a look at the full synopsis and details below:

  • LUCIFER (2019) #6
  • Published: March 20th, 2019
  • Writer: Dan Watters
  • Art: Max Fiumara, Sebastian Fiumara, Dave McCaig
  • Cover: Tiffany Turrill
  • Lucifer remembers. But the price of clarity may be destruction, as the Devil sits at the edge of a precipice—and erstwhile allies remember his past sins, too. Meanwhile, the Moon attempts to steal from the Earth, and a potential Antichrist is conceived.

Lucifer #6 will be available from your local comic book store on March 20th, or direct from DC/Vertigo.

Preacher’s Graham McTavish to Recur in Lucifer Season 4



In a considerable departure from his role as the Saint of Killers in Preacher, Graham McTavish has been cast in a recurring role as kindly priest Father Kinley in Lucifer season 4. The supernatural police procedural is, like Preacher, based on a comic book of the same name from DC’s Vertigo imprint. Lucifer was canceled by FOX earlier this summer, but quickly picked up for a fourth season by Netflix.

McTavish is currently appearing in the third season of Preacher, as the Saint is given the unenviable task of trying to drag Eugene “Arseface” Root, Adolf Hitler, and Tulip O’Hare to Hell. McTavish is also known for playing Dwalin, one of the dwarves, in the Hobbit movies, and for his role as Dougal MacKenzie in Outlander. He’s an actor with a very broad range, and an excellent new addition to Lucifer‘s cast.

According to TVLine McTavish’s character, Father Kinley, is a “kind, deeply empathetic and revered priest,” who is “profoundly committed to guarding his flock. That includes doing whatever it takes to keep mankind safe from evil — which doesn’t bode well for a certain devil living in Los Angeles.” So, as kindly and empathetic as he may be, Kinley may end up playing something of an antagonist in Lucifer season 4. This is a recurring role for McTavish, though it’s as-yet unknown how many episodes of Lucifer’s 10-episode fourth season he’ll appear in.

Lucifer stars the ever-charming Tom Ellis as the eponymous King of Hell, who decides to abandon his responsibilities, move to Los Angeles, and open a nightclub. There he teams up with homicide detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), and uses his supernatural talents to help her solve crime, while continuing to dodge efforts to compel him back to his throne in Hell.

Season 4 of Lucifer recently began filming, and The Leftovers‘ Inbar Lavi also recently joined the show’s cast as Eve (yes, that Eve), who is still around and still married to Adam. However, after all this time their marriage has grown somewhat stale and Eve has developed a longing to go back to more wicked times, including rekindling her passions for her “first love” – our man Lucifer. It certainly looks like things are going to get interesting, so we’ll keep you updated on any further casting news and story details.
