Lubicant is inspired by the demon Rubicante who appears in Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. In the poem, he is part of a demonic troop called Malebranche, who guard the fifth bolgia of Malebolge. The Malebolge is found in the eighth circle of Hell, Fraud, where corrupt politicians are immersed in burning pitch.
A demon with a stabbing pitchfork attack. Despite having a similar behavior than Cagnazzo and Skull Millione, he has neither the ability to inflict Poison, nor the ability to inflict Curse.

Lubicant's soul, Berserker, is unique; while equipped, the player's stats increase while their health decreases.

- "Lubicant" is a mispronunciation of Rubicante, from Dante's Divine Comedy.
- The name Rubicante arguably translates to "Red-faced Terror".
