|— Amenadiel to Linda|
in "A Chance at a Happy Ending"
Amenadiel is the eldest of all God's Angels and serves as a central character in Lucifer. Initially the primary antagonist of Season 1, he embarked on his own journey of growth and ultimately became one of Lucifer's closest allies. As the eldest in the family, Amenadiel was God's main enforcer and messenger for the majority of his lifetime, as he would be involved in fulfilling his Father's most important orders; these acts ranged from overseeing the banishment of Goddess to Hell, cursing Cain for killing his brother Abel, and traveling to Earth on God's behest in order to send Lucifer Morningstar back to Hell so he could resume his duties as the Sovereign of Hell, as the latter would often become bored and leave his post. He was eventually tasked with blessing a woman who was unable to have a child, resulting in the birth of Chloe Decker.
By 2011, on one of Amenadiel's trips to Earth to retrieve Lucifer, he lost his necklace and was forced to make a deal with his brother to help retrieve it in exchange for letting him be. Five years later, Amenadiel returned to send him back, only for Lucifer to repeatedly refuse to give up his life in Los Angeles. With Lucifer refusing to go willingly, Amenadiel felt forced to resort to extreme measures: He used Lucifer's therapist Linda Martin to get information on him, staring a sexual relationship with Mazikeen, and even resurrecting Malcolm Graham to kill Lucifer so as to forcibly send Lucifer back, which ultimately failed. After realizing he had gone too far, Amenadiel asked for Lucifer's help in returning Malcolm to Hell.
After learning that Goddess escaped Hell, Amenadiel joined Lucifer in his hunt for her to send her back. He soon discovered that he had lost his powers and believed God was punishing him for what he had done the previous year. After Uriel's eradication and learning that Chloe Decker, Lucifer's LAPD partner, was the child of the woman he blessed, Amenadiel grew furious at their Father for manipulating them all without explanation. He said he was done and started to become his own man. He aided their Mother in her quest to return to Heaven using the Flaming Sword, only to discover that God had entrusted the final piece to him; his necklace. With this revelation, Amenadiel regained his faith in his Father, believing he was his favorite son. He also started a friendship with Dan Espinoza and temporarily regained his powers to slow down time to save Linda after she was seriously hurt by Goddess.
With their Mother in her own universe, Amenadiel set out to prove himself to God so he could regain his powers and his wings. He believed Lucifer was his test; to help God's wayward son find redemption, and in helping him, he would be able to go home. He started a romantic relationship with Linda in secret so Maze wouldn't find out, but it eventually came to light and the two broke up. Amenadiel came face-to-face with Cain, who he cursed, and set out to stop Lucifer in helping him break his curse. He eventually learned that Charlotte Richards, Goddess host, was alive and developed a friendship with her, exposing the Celestial world to her when she felt like she was going crazy. After a talk with Charlotte, Amenadiel realized that God was never punishing or testing him, and that he was actually responsible for for punishing himself, and that angels seemed to self-actualize. When Charlotte was murdered, Amenadiel spontaneously regained his wings and flew her up to Heaven where she belonged.
After a month, Amenadiel returned to Earth and decided to live there, feeling like it was now more his home than the Silver City was. Though it seemed like he made a mistake at first, Amenadiel discovered that he was going to have a son with Linda, something that would have been impossible had he not become compatibly Human after he lost his powers. He was soon paid a visit by Remiel, who intended to take the child to Heaven, but Amenadiel won a battle against his younger sister in deciding his fate. Amenadiel's feeling changed, however, after he witnessed racism and violence and realized Remiel was right; he intended to take Charlie to Heaven. After Demons kidnapped him, however, and he and Lucifer rescued him, Amenadiel decided his son will be fine after Linda was willing to let her son go, believing the two will protect him.
In the following months, after Lucifer returned to Hell to keep the Demons in line, Amenadiel ran Lux in his absence and tried to make L.A. better for Charlie. However, with Michael's quest to ruin Lucifer's life on Earth, Amenadiel was forced to retrieve Lucifer to stop him. After temporarily running Hell for a couple of weeks, Amenadiel helped Chloe resolve her issues after she found out she was "a gift from God" and got her and Lucifer to reconnect. When Charlie got sick, Amenadiel realized, thanks to Michael's manipulations, that Charlie was mortal and that he would eventually die. This caused him to have panic attack and completely freeze time. Before he could fix his mistake, he and Lucifer were attacked by Michael and Maze in the precinct. Their sibling squabble was broken up, however, when God showed up.
With their Father's appearance on Earth, Amenadiel started acting like his old self and remained loyal to their Father. God eventually revealed that he was going to retire, and though it seemed like Amenadiel was to take his place, he ultimately chose not to, and backed Lucifer when he chose to succeed their Father as the Sovereign of Heaven. Amenadiel decided to spend the rest of his life as a police officer helping others on Earth, but had an argument with Dan when he misunderstood what he meant in regards to him being a police officer. After Dan and Remiel were killed in Michael's campaign to succeed their Father, Amenadiel joined Lucifer in defeating their brother and happily led the others in taking a knee to the new God.
Now an officer of the law, Amenadiel served as a beat cop alongside Sonya Harris trying to fix the injustice in the police department. He was reunited with Dan after his spirit was brought to Earth by his future niece, Aurora, and was able to make peace with him. After Lucifer abdicates his decision to be the new God, Amenadiel decides to take on the responsibility, figuring this was their Father's plan all along, and have Heaven be a democracy so he can still have life on Earth with his son, and was thrilled he got his wings on his second birthday.
Amenadiel was one of the many Angels created by God and Goddess billions of years ago, he was not only the first born, but the first Archangel. Amenadiel was given a necklace by God that he cherished.
Growing Up In Heaven
As an young Angel, he played and trained with his siblings, however, he and the other Angels often excluded Uriel from their activities. Despite Amenadiel neglecting Uriel, he would always take the blame for the pranks he played on Samael so he wouldn't get in trouble with their Father. All of his siblings admired, respected, and even feared him. He was very close with Remiel, with whom he hunted stags in the Silver City. He would often be pranked by his siblings Samael and Azrael, but wouldn't retaliate against them. He, however, would give Michael "atomic wedges" whenever he made him think that he was Samael, giving himself away with his mojo.
Gift from God
Circa 1981, for unknown reasons, God asked Amenadiel to go down to Earth and bless a couple who were unable to have a child of their own. That couple was John and Penelope Decker. He went to a bar that Penelope was at and talked to her before covertly blessing her. Before he left, their picture was taken and hung up on the wall. That was the first and only time God had ever asked Amenadiel to do anything like that.
Throughout the centuries, Lucifer Morningstar would leave Hell to spend time on Earth; Amenadiel was sent by their Father to drag him back each time. During the centuries of retrieving his brother, Amenadiel pranked Lucifer by spreading a story that he was affiliated with goats, which Lucifer hates.
Deal with Lucifer
Losing his Necklace
In 2011, Lucifer Morningstar left Hell and went to Los Angeles to have some fun. While he was in the middle of a sex party, Amenadiel arrived, slowing down time so the Humans wouldn't see him. Amenadiel felt pity for the Humans as they had no idea who they were having sex with, and put a woman's shirt back on. Though Lucifer tried to crack jokes, Amenadiel, not in the mood for his foolishness, stated it was time for him to take him back to Hell once again.
Lucifer, however, believed he let Amenadiel take him back, but the eldest brother pointed out that he was the strongest of God's children. When Lucifer tried challenging him to a battle, as he never fought him, Amenadiel reminded his younger brother that Celestial Being aren't allowed to interact on Earth and insisted they go as it was dangerous for Humanity to be exposed to divinity. When Lucifer made a joke, Amenadiel became frustrated and yelled that was enough. Amenadiel gave him a choice of either dealing with him or their Father, which made Lucifer uncomfortable. He asked Amenadiel to let him say his goodbyes and he allowed him to have 10 minutes and left the apartment to wait outside for him.
Once outside, a young jogger stopped to admire Amenadiel's "dress", though he said it was a robe. Complimenting Amenadiel's style, the man jogs off, leaving Amenadiel annoyed by the Human. As he was about to walk away, he heard gunfire and a masked man ran up and spotted Amenadiel. The man then shot him, startled, Amenadiel fell "dead." When he recovered, he found necklace had been stolen by the thief.
Needing to retrieve his necklace before he takes Lucifer back to Hell, he returns to his brother's room to get a change of cloths to blend in while he searches. When he arrives, Lucifer questioned why there were holes in his robe, but Amenadiel, not wanting to tell Lucifer that he lost his necklace to a Human, tells him that he needs to run an errand for a few hours, then they'll return to Hell, the delay pleased Lucifer.
Following Lucifer's Lead
In Human cloths and shades, Amenadiel went to the Los Angeles Police Department and asked Officer Decker for her assistance in helping him find his stolen necklace, but in a way that confused the officer. She asked him standard questions involving a robbery case, which he answered, before giving her a sketch of the suspect with his hoody on to help her catch him.
She, however, believed that the sketch looked like a jack-o'-lantern, but Amenadiel, who had no idea what that was, believed that was the man's named and asked her where he could find "Mr. O'-Lantern". Believing this was one big prank, Officer Decker asked if Anthony Paolucci put him up to this. Amenadiel was offended that she would think he would lie and while she answered a call, he left.
Realizing he needed Lucifer Morningstar's help, he returned to his hotel suite and woke him up. Embarrassed, Amenadiel confessed what happened, much to Lucifer's amusement. Amenadiel asked Lucifer for his help, trying to play into his ego by calling him crafty and smart. Amenadiel also believed he knew Humanity better then him, and while Lucifer was enjoying teasing him, he nonetheless agreed to help, so long as he followed his lead; Amenadiel agreed.
Amenadiel was taken to an outdoor Beachfront Bar, and asked if this was where thieves came to spend their spoils on wine and women, but Lucifer didn't give him a straight answer. Noticing Lucifer plying at a piano, he asked if Hell had music, to which he said only to torture, particularly from Justin Beiber. When Lucifer asked Amenadiel to go get them drinks while he did some reconnaissance, he glared at him suspiciously, but adhered all the same.
Hearing a different tune from the piano, Amenadiel realized that Lucifer was not only playing it, but was stalling his return to Hell. He confronted his brother, who didn't deny it. He reminded him that he promised to help him, but Lucifer clarified that he planned to help him distract himself from realizing that was never going to find the necklace.
While Lucifer continued to play, Amenadiel spotted a T.V. behind a bar that had the jogger who greeted him, Aiden Schott, as a murder victim who was shot at Cahuenga and Franklin; the place where he was shot by the hooded man. He took Lucifer over to the T.V. an told him that if they find Aiden's killer, they'll be able to find his necklace.
His hopes were crushed, however, when the reporter said that the LAPD had no leads, and if they couldn't find him, it would be impossible for them. Lucifer, however, believed he could help after all, but requested a few extra hours on Earth. Reluctant, Amenadiel asked his price, but Lucifer couldn't think of anything at the moment and insist it be a "blank check" deal. Amenadiel agreed to the deal, much to Lucifer's joy.
They went to a parking garage to get a set of wheels, and Amenadiel suggested one, but Lucifer deemed it to "douchey". Lucifer spotted a corvette and chose that as their transportation. Amenadiel questioned if he needed the keys, but Lucifer was able to "turn anything on". Amenadiel got into the passenger seat and the two drove off.
Throughout the Series
|This section is a stub. You can help by expanding it.|
In "Pilot", Amenadiel comes to Lux and asks Lucifer to return to the underworld and resume his role as the ruler of Hell. However, Lucifer steadfastly rejects his brother's request, and Amenadiel reluctantly leaves; but not before attempting to sway Malcolm Graham into a plan to kill Lucifer in order to banish him to Hell for all eternity.
In "Manly Whatnots" and "Sweet Kicks", Amenadiel persuades Mazikeen to help him return Lucifer to Hell for "his own good". Mazikeen agrees with Amenadiel's plan in the beginning, but soon after she attempts to kill him in his sleep, which resulted in them dissolving their unholy partnership.
In "Sympathy for the Goddess", an ancient Sumerian text claims that the key for the Flaming Sword was given to God's favorite son. Amenadiel initially was upset by this as he thought that Lucifer was the one who was bequeathed the ancient key. Much to his surprise and candor, the key is eventually revealed to be his own necklace, fortifying his belief that he is indeed God's favorite son. Lucifer did not doubt this for a second; he always knew that Amenadiel was their father's favorite.
In "Quintessential Deckerstar", Amenadiel deeply thanked Charlotte for her help in successfully preventing Chloe and Pierce from getting married, but her comment about still feeling the weight of her guilt made Amenadiel wonder if angels were also their judges, also known as self-actualization. Amenadiel can be credited with actually conceiving the theory of self-actualization. Later that night, Amenadiel comes across Mazikeen, who appears to be in distress for driving everyone away. While Maze had originally conspired with Pierce to tranquilize Amenadiel and take him to be killed, Maze changed her mind after the two of them shared a passionate moment. Later, after Charlotte helped to put away a killer, Amenadiel congratulated her for her deeds.
After Amenadiel and Charlotte gathered significant evidence from Richards & Wheeler, Charlotte's former law firm, that Marcus Pierce is indeed The Sinnerman, the duo set out to bring him to justice. While the two were talking on a bench, Pierce was hiding in the bushes, planning to take Amenadiel's life in order to remove his mark and in addition, his curse of immortality. Charlotte hears rattling coming from the trees, and in a moment of true redemption, stands in front of Amenadiel, taking two gunshots to her torso, thus saving his life, but consequently sealing her own fate.
For the first time in the entire series, Amenadiel shows his emotional side. As Charlotte lays dying, he comforts her; she is in deep fear of returning to Hell. As he cradles her body, Amenadiel regains his wings and flies to Heaven with Charlotte's soul. Lucifer and Chloe find Charlotte's body and Lucifer realizes his brother has gone home to the Silver City and has taken Charlotte with him.
In "Everything's Okay", Amenadiel came back from Silver City and confronted Lucifer. He reveals the truth to him about Charlotte, who is now in Heaven, which they both agreed she deserved. Later, he shows up at Linda's office, where he is surprised to see Linda and Maze in an argument which was about to turn physical. The three of them made up and reformed their friendship. Amenadiel then tells Linda about how his feelings changed while he was living in the Silver City, which he considered at one point his true home. He reveals to her that Heaven no longer feels like home, and he intends to stay on Earth as he did not feel welcome in the Silver City anymore.
It was at this time that Amenadiel also found out that Linda was pregnant with their child. Following a visit from his sister and fellow angel Remiel, he planned to bring his son and raise him in the Silver City following her persuasions, but changed his mind when he saw how connected Linda was to Charlie.
Amenadiel struggles greatly with his calling as a father, and tries to be responsible in his efforts to clean up Lux in Lucifer's absence. This fails on numerous occasions, however, and he is unable to stop a simple drug transaction, which ends up embarrassing the LAPD when they approach a young teen selling illegal pharmaceuticals.
When Amenadiel realizes that his brother Michael has come to Earth in an effort to wreak havoc on Lucifer's life, Amenadiel travels to Hell to inform Lucifer that he must return at once and fix what has been broken. In his stead, Amenadiel once again remains behind to keep order in Hell.
Amenadiel returns from Hell shortly after on God's orders, much to Lucifer's surprise. He begins helping out the LAPD for a second time, and is able to help Chloe solve the murder of a nun; this helps bring him closer to his Father and restores his faith in what he had previously lost. With these new developments, Amenadiel realizes that the relationship between Lucifer and Chloe is not as he first thought and that Lucifer is vulnerable around Chloe because he chooses to be, not for any other reason.
Amenadiel quickly realizes that he now relies too heavily on his duty as a parent, and remarks to Maze that he is no longer sure of who he was before he became a father. Maze promises to show Amenadiel what he is missing, but this quickly goes wrong when the two kiss; it becomes clear that Maze too is missing who she used to be. Amenadiel later talks with Linda about these concerns and the fact that Charlie will no longer need the two of them someday.
Amenadiel is very head-strong, loyal, determined, disciplined, honorable, and righteous. Lucifer once described him as a "major power-hungry dick", though he admitted that he and their other siblings all looked up to Amenadiel. He is extremely loyal to his Father, God, and has shown great determination to complete whatever task he believes God wants him to do.
While not initially evident, it becomes clear that Amenadiel is jealous of Lucifer’s place as God’s ‘favorite’ son (Samael, which is translated as ‘God’s favorite’). He is thrilled when, having read in an untitled ancient tome that the key to Azrael’s blade, the missing third piece was given to God’s favorite son, and assuming that the piece was in Lucifer’s possession, he realizes that it was given to him - in the form of a necklace he always wears.
Like his brother Lucifer, Amenadiel is physically handsome, well built, and has a powerful physique. Amenadiel initially shows disdain towards Hell and Earth. He rejects becoming the sovereign of Hell nor does he want to live on Earth. He looks down at humans and once called humans who were with Lucifer "poor creatures" who "know not what they do." However, after living on Earth he begins to understand humans more and even falls in love with one.
While generally trying to do "good", Amenadiel has at times deviated. While trying to force Lucifer to go back to Hell, he lied to and manipulated Dr. Linda Martin. He also resurrected Malcolm Graham from Hell for Malcolm to kill Lucifer. Goddess noted Amenadiel sacrifices a lot to be the "good son" but is never rewarded for all he does. However, Amenadiel is not without remorse; when he befriended Linda to manipulate Lucifer, he truly thought of her as a friend. When he realized his action had led to people being hurt, he felt guilty and sought to make things right.
When Amenadiel fell from grace, he started to become weary of God's choices. He believes God is testing him but he is confused about what he should do. In season 3, he had concluded that Lucifer is his test, that God wants him to be there for Lucifer and be his "brother's keeper."
Amenadiel hides the fact he still cares deeply about Lucifer, but still acts in his best interest. When he saw Lucifer was on the verge of crying after using his emotional pain to ignite the Flaming Sword, he stopped Goddess from forcing him to keep trying when it failed to stay lit. Of all the Angels, Amenadiel was the first to back Lucifer to replace their Father and was the first to kneel before him when it looked as if he would become God, proud at how far his little brother has come.
When discussing names for their child with Linda, most of the names Amenadiel suggested ended in "el", which is an abbreviation of ‘Elohim’ one of the traditional Hebrew names for God - all names which end in ‘el’ connotative of a relationship with God (e.g. Castiel, Samael, Michael, Gabriel, Ezekiel). He also showed a deep aversion to the name Michael, thereby indicating that the two have a strained relationship.
During his eulogy at Dan's funeral in "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!", Amenadiel admitted that when he first came to Los Angeles, he was angry and confused about his place in the world; he had always just done what God wished, never really thinking for himself. After he fell and became mortal, he had no idea how to interact with humans; however, Dan helped him learn how. It was this friendship that helped him learn how to be a good man and how to be a good father to Charlie. Because of such, Amenadiel chose to follow Dan's choice of profession of being a police officer; both because it was righteous and to help others (by fighting the racism within the system)
Powers and Abilities
|“||Yes, Amenadiel is quite the warrior. Undefeated in battle, one of God's finest.||„|
|— Lucifer Morningstar in City of Angels?|
- Archangel Physiology: As the oldest and one of the most powerful angels, Amenadiel is extremely powerful and has their powers, as well as their weaknesses. He proved to be capable of overpowering the likes of Remiel and Michael. Lucifer is said to be the only angel seen to rival his power, but even he could not defeat Amenadiel without effort. Amenadiel has shown on multiple occasions to overpower Lucifer and attack him with enough force to make him severely bleed. Furthermore, when Amenadiel was weakened and his wings are damaged, he was still much stronger than ordinary human, as shown when he easily held off several hospital security guards, lifting a man off of the ground by his throat one-handed with minimal effort, and effortlessly overpowering and easily defeating Cain in hand-to-hand combat. After Charlotte Richards sacrificed her life to save Amenadiel, his powers were restored and he was able to fly with her soul to Heaven.
- Superhuman Strength: Amenadiel, like all angels, is incredibly strong, capable of exerting immense amounts of superhuman physical force and has vast levels of superhuman strength when he so desires, the full extent of which remains unknown but said to be among the strongest of God's angels. While holding back, he could trade blows equally with Remiel, another extremely powerful angel, known as the Huntress of Heaven. However, once he revealed his true power, he overpowered her and easily bested her with a single punch. He also maintained the upper hand through most of his fight with Michael, as the latter struggled to hold many of Amenadiel's powerful strikes back. Amenadiel has shown to have the strength to effortlessly overpower multiple large men in combat. In addition, he can knock a man unconscious with just a light jab, send a heavy punching bag nearly several feet in the air, and bend and break metal objects such as guns. Even without his powers, Amenadiel still maintained a high degree of superhuman physical force, albeit nowhere near as strong as he was before.
- Superhuman Speed: Like all angels, Amenadiel is extraordinarily fast, he is much faster than humans, demons, animals, and other beings, he can appear and disappear with a blink of an eye, and when using his wings he can fly as fast or faster than the speed of light, he can appear and disappear, in a similar manner akin to teleportation. It is unknown how fast he is while running, but he has shown to be able to move superhumanly fast.
- Immortality: Being the firstborn Angel, Amenadiel has been alive for billions of years, predating the Big Bang and all of his angelic siblings. Like all angels, he is absolutely immortal with an eternal youthful lifespan, and he will live for all eternity without aging or decaying.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Like all angels, Amenadiel can heal any injury or wound within minutes or an hour, no matter how bad the injury is. However, Amenadiel is virtually indestructible, and the only time he would need to heal is if he physically fought his angelic siblings or if he was hurt by the demon daggers or the Flaming Sword.
- Invulnerability: Like all Angels, Amenadiel is virtually indestructible and nearly invincible. He has an incredibly durable body, which can withstand a vast amount of physical damage. Bullets and knives harmlessly bounce off of his body. The only things and beings that can harm him are God, Goddess, the Flaming Sword and Demon Daggers forged in Hell.
- Superhuman Agility and Reflexes: Like all Angels, Amenadiel has vast superhuman agility and reflexes, far greater agility than humans and demons.
- Flight: Amenadiel's wings allow him to fly, including between Earth and Heaven. He can fly as fast or faster than the speed of light in which he would seemingly disappear from the human eye, in a similar manner, akin to teleportation.
- Dimensional Travel: When Amenadiel possessed his wings, he was able to travel between Heaven, Hell, and Earth. He lost this ability when his wings were damaged and his powers weakened. Upon regaining his wings, Amenadiel regained the ability to travel back to Heaven. His first act upon regaining his wings was to travel to Heaven with Charlotte's soul so that she can finally be at blissful peace in the afterlife she deserved.
- Healing: Amenadiel is capable of channeling divine power to heal the injuries of other beings. When resurrecting Malcolm Graham, he instantly healed the gunshot wound that originally killed him.
- Resurrection: Amenadiel, like all angels, can bring people back from the dead. When a dying Malcolm was taken off life support, Amenadiel brought him back to life. He does this by taking a soul and placing it in a recently deceased body. Without his wings as a fallen angel, Amenadiel would be unable to travel to Heaven or Hell to retrieve a soul. This power was presumably restored when his powers returned, as he took Charlotte Richards to Heaven.
- Chronokinesis: Amenadiel's greatest power is his unique ability to significantly slow down time. However, after committing several sins he started deeming himself unworthy of his powers, and he began to lose them, with his chronokinetic ability being the first one to fail. In "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy", Amenadiel was able to considerably slow time to allow Maze to save Linda. However, this took intense concentration and left him exhausted afterward. In "They're Back, Aren't They?", Amenadiel tells Lucifer that this appears to have been "a one-time thing" as he has since been unable to replicate the effect or use any of his other powers. This power was revealed to not have been restored with his full angelic form after meeting Remiel, possibly because of his newfound beliefs of connecting with humanity and his views of his powers. During a great moment of anguish, he succeeded in completely stopping time.
- Cursing: Amenadiel was sent by God to curse Cain with a mark on his arm that allows him to Live forever.
- Miracle Blessing: Amenadiel was sent by God to bless Penelope Decker and John Decker with a miracle child (Chloe Decker)
- Celestial Communication: Amenadiel, like all angels, can communicate with his Angelic siblings by praying to them, and he can also communicate with his father God if he chooses to do so.
- Spirit Communication: As an angel, Amenadiel can communicate with ghosts, like he did with Dan Espinoza after his soul was placed on Earth from Hell.
- Faith Reflection: When around people of faith, they will see their love of God reflected back at them when looking at Amenadiel, as he is a channel for God’s love. This led him to realize that Lucifer’s ability to seduce people was because they saw their own desires reflected back by him, and thus, that Chloe’s immunity to Lucifer’s desire mojo was because her reactions were hers alone, not a mirrored or augmented angelic influence.
- Nigh-Omnipotence: As Amenadiel became the new God, it is safe to assume that he has aquired all of the same powers as his father. In addition, Amenadiel possess absolute control over Heaven and the angels, as he was able to command for democracy in Heaven.
- Nigh-Omniscience: As a god, Amenadiel presumably possesses nearly unlimited knowledge.
In addition to his omnipotence, Amenadiel retains all of his powers while being an angel.
|“||Yes, Amenadiel is quite the warrior. Undefeated in battle, one of God's finest.||„|
|— Lucifer in City of Angels?|
- Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant/Martial Artist: Amenadiel is a supreme hand-to-hand combatant, one of the greatest fighters to date. He is shown on multiple occasions of being able to swiftly gain the upper hand against the demon Maze in a duel, even mocking her at times. Even without his powers, Amenadiel showed exceptional strength and experience in combat, mostly exhibited during his duel with Cain. He was able to hold his own and overpower the latter, who, while human, has been alive for thousands of years and is also a highly skilled combatant. He is even shown to be quite capable of competing with Lucifer and even overpowering him twice when Lucifer was holding back, although Lucifer is proven to be more skilled than him when he was fighting fully, as despite being able to fight against him on reasonably even footing, Lucifer dealt a more severe beating on him in their third altercation while not at full power.
- Self-Actualization: Angels are under the same system of self-judgment as humans are. Similar to how humans are judged to determine if they are to go to Hell, if an angel feels a sufficient amount of guilt, it could cause them to see themselves as sinners and punish themselves. Due to Amenadiel's guilt and feelings of unworthiness, Amenadiel believed he was truly guilty, which resulted in his fall from grace. His personal belief in the importance of connecting with humans on Earth and the role his powers over time had on them had caused him to lose his ability to manipulate time even after his angelic form was restored. It is implied by a conversation with Remiel that his time manipulation power has not returned because he believes he shouldn't use it. When consumed by the fear of his son growing old and dying before him, Amenadiel's subconscious state caused his chronokinesis to go out of control and surpass what he was previously able to do before he lost his power which was limited to only slowing time down initially.

Behind the scenes
- While Chloe was immune to Lucifer's charm, she was affected by Amenadiel's presence. Ella Lopez reacts similarly to Amenadiel, but she is not fully immune to Lucifer's charm.
- Amenadiel was the one who started the association of Lucifer to the figure of a goat, which Lucifer abhors. He spread the rumor a thousand years ago as a prank on Lucifer. Maze was the first person he told about it.
- In the comics, Amenadiel is a supporting antagonist. He is a strong angel who despises Lucifer and is bent on killing him. His personality and role in the show is much like that of Michael's comic counterpart.
- It is said in "Sympathy for the Goddess", that he is God's favorite angel.
- A Devil of My Word is the only season finale in which Amenadiel doesn't appear.
- After three years on Earth, Amenadiel came to view God as having been "an ass" to his children throughout existence for being vague and never giving straight answer for anything.
- He has had relationships with both Maze and Linda, two of his brother's former lovers.
- The meaning of the name Amenadiel is "Amen" and '"di el," it is of God.
- There is an Amendiel in the book of Enoch, which is part of the Bible of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It is said that Amenadiel is a fallen angel who rebelled against the Creator, defeated by angel Michael.
