^^^ Ash seems like an enemy out of a Persona or Shin Megami Tensei game and not something in your average FF game.

Just the most satanic looking in a FF game, but just according to christianity.
FF is fond of creatures based on demons and mythological beings.

Shiva, Bahamut, Glasyo Labolas, Diablo, Brothers, Edea, Chaos... just a few examples.

You're about a decade behind dude.

Just look at Chaos from FF I, he looks like your generic overgrown demon. Hell, in FF II Beelzebub is one of the bosses you can fight, though he is optional.

FF has been using demonic enemies since the beginning.

well stuff like Shiva are basically inspired by gods from their respective religions.
then stuff like Bahamut and Leviathan have places in mythology.
and beings like Chaos even though they look like a demon are never actually referred like this in ff games.

Not only Beelzebub, but Lucifer and Satan are also enemies in the FF series. As are other classic names that have been used for the devil over the ages, such as Belphegor, Mammon, Asmodeus, Astaroth, etc, etc.

In terms of demonology, the 72 demons of Solomon are an extremely common go-to reference for many, many enemies in the series. Check out the list and seem how many FF monster names you recognize there:

Also, check out the picture of Buer. It looks identical to the Buer enemy from FFVIII.
Like FFVI? Read mah prequel, The Sands of Time! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6209029/1/Final_Fantasy_VI_The_Sands_of_Time

She is, indeed, very creepy, but not satanic.

In FFVII you can summon the greek equivalent to Satan, Hades. And FFXII's Adrammelech is a uber version of Ash.
