In episode 16 of the anime, Aion sexually harasses Satella. In the manga, this has never occurred. Matter of fact, he didn't even meet Satella before he turned into his demonic form, after Chrono lost his mind since Rosette was hurt. Also, the kisses he gives to Rosettenever happened in the manga. Another change is that in the anime, Aion still lives even when Chrono slashes him in Central Park.

This is mostly useless but it has its advantages from time to time and even though it's not a power, she is the only one that can translate Way's riddles. In the episode "Fall of Odyssea" her worst memory is when she uses a spell to turn others into frogs, after they all act like frogs even in human form.

She got her Earth look from when she first arrived in 1999 (2004 in the anime), before she met the Hinatas. In the manga, her father had encouraged her to see only herself as important as this frame of mind was needed to become an effective planet destroyer.

She is said to have no thoughts or desires besides that of what her master expect of her. Because of her "doormat" behavior, other characters tend to project their wants or desires onto her, and she's always the target of their eventual rage.

Arshes Nei from the anime Bastard. A half human, half Dark Elf who was kept as a slave by the Wood Elves, Dark Schneider found her after she was abandoned by her tribe and took rare pity. She became both his daughter and his lover, being apparently similarly immortal (or at least long lived). She was his major confidant, and as such is aware of most of the same spells he is. To prove her loyalty to the Four Divine Kings in the manga, she let herself be cursed with the spell Accused by Abigail; in the anime, this compelled her to fight against Dark Schneider whilst her army marched on Meta-Rikana. In the middle of a magical showdown using Helloween, Lucien's spirit made Dark Schneider aware of what was driving his daughter to attack. DS was outraged and tore out his own heart to drive off the power of the Accused spell (later resurrecting himself). Arshes rejoins him at this point, and they destroy the advancing armies. She was the first Lord of Havoc to join Dark Schneider originally, and the second to rejoin.

Astaroth has been described as having easy-to-master gameplay and being popular with fans of strong, hard-hitting characters in fighting games. However, these aspects have also been a source of criticism towards the character, with complaints that the character serves as a crutch used by less-skilled players of the games.
