List Rules Vote up the romantic pairings that are devilishly memorable.

The idea of two very different creatures falling in love is often intriguing to people. So, despite the obvious things that set them apart, many fans find themselves cheering on human-demon romances. Supernatural beings are just so interesting to humans, which is why these relationships have been gaining so much popularity. Humans will often work hard to make these bizarre pairings work because they love their partner regardless of what they are.

Demons are known as an evil spirit or as a devil, which is why they might be considered an unusual choice for a love story. However, it is charming to see how far humans will go to be with the ones they love. In the end, for most human-demon romances, the humans don't seem to care that they are dating a demon, and they are willing to overlook their flaws. Even if they don't work out in the end, it is still a romantic mindset that many viewers can't resist.

Each TV show and movie portrays demons in their own unique way, but regardless of that representation, it is clear that demons are very different from humans, and many might even be hesitant to trust these so-called 'evil creatures'. But true love has no boundaries, and these human-demon romances truly are proof of that.

Anya was originally a revenge demon with a dislike for most men, but like any teen, she wanted a date to the prom. She asked Xander since she knew he also did not have a date, but she didn't realize it would develop into more than just an innocent outing.

In later episodes, Anya began to develop feelings for Xander. At first, she tried sleeping with him in hopes to get over him, but the two ended up dating. They had their ups and downs, but their relationship eventually led to Xander proposing. On their wedding day, a former victim of Anya's approached Xander and manipulated him. Xander ended up calling off the wedding, leaving Anya heartbroken.

Lucifer initially partnered with Chloe to investigate the passing of a pop star, and they have worked together multiple times since. At first, Chloe thinks Lucifer has some odd behaviors, so she tries to learn more about him. Over time, they developed romantic feelings for each other, but they keep their emotions under wraps despite the fact they clearly complement each other.

Chloe becomes worried when she discovers Lucifer's true nature, but that doesn’t take away from her attraction to him. Finally, she is honest with him and confesses she’s more scared of losing him than of who he is.
