In his normal form Zann is a large demon standing about ten meters tall, his appearence is far more like a traditional demon unlike most of his foes. His body is coverd in a thin brown fur leaving his hands, feet, head and upper chest. His upper chest is covered in a red coloured armour with a large mouth on the center of it, he has four eyes going along the top of his armour as well. In his ghostly spider-like form, Zann's chest appears in the sky in a giant size with long wispy tentacles coming from it.
Powers and AbilitesEdit
The true extent of Zann's power is never fully shown, however he is shown to be able to create near perfect disguises and he can also fly. His most prominently shown power is when he projects an altered image of himself in the sky to taunt Akira Fudo.
Zann is mentioned a few times but it's not until the third volume of the original Devilman that he finally appears. After Akira Fudo had beaten Masa Bokuto, Dosu-Roku , Manjiro the Chain, Meriken-Jou and Tetsu in a very brief fight atop the school, they are confronted by an ugly girl who asks if they want a chance to beat him. They agree and she suddenly explodes into spiders which possess the gang.They hunt down Akira, and find him in a classroom talking to Miki Makimura where they again battle, but Akira takes care not to hurt them too badly as they had only been possessed and not fully taken over by the demons. After dealing with them they pledge their allegiance to Akira and join him in his quest against the demons, which is useful as almost immediately after they are surrounded by the school's sports teams who had all been possessed by spider demons as well. Akira tells the gang to protect Miki as he goes off to search for the spider hivemind Zann. He finds Zann in a disguise replicating Akira, with a massive spider atop his head. Akira took a swing at Zann but suddenly disappears, and all the possessed humans suddenly stand still as the spiders controlling them detach themselves and fly off into the sky. They form into a gigantic projected image of Zann and he mockingly laughs at Akira before dissappearing. A long while later after Zennon had annonced the existence of the demon race to human kind and had announced their imminent attack, Akira went out into the wasteland to do battle with demons. He killed many before being knocked down by one of Psycho Jenny's psychic attacks. He is quickly surrounded by a large group of demons that are about to kill him for different reasons, one even wanting to avenge Kaimu. However they are stopped in their tracks when Zann comes down from the sky and tells them that Zennon wanted him alive, one Leaf Demon however says he would ignore him and should kill him anyway but Zann shocks them all when he says the order came from Satan himself.
