666 (六百六十六 ) is a specific number that is most prominent and an important aspect in the Mairimashita! Iruma-kun's Demon World Universe. This includes either more than or less than six-hundred sixty-six as long as the number 6 is present.

Background

In superstitions, the number 666 is often affiliated with devils or demons, as well as signifies evil. It is commonly interpreted as a number to invoke Satan[1].

The association of 666 with evil originates from a passage in the Book of Revelations in the New Testament of the Bible. As it reads in the King James Version (13:18): Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The idea of the “number of a man” or “beast” may refer to the practice of gematria in Jewish numerology, where every letter of the Hebrew alphabet corresponds to a number (e.g., aleph=1, bet=2, etc.), and words and names correspond to the sums of these numbers,[2] which is then interconnects with the series' Demon Ranking System.
