The Unholy Trinity is seen by some in Christian eschatology as the exact opposite of The Holy Trinity that represents God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The Unholy Trinity represents Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet.

The Unholy Trinity would also mean that Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet are all one and the same but separated into different incarnations, just as God, Christ, and The Holy Spirit are all one entity in separate incarnations.

John Milton labels Satan, Sin, and Death as the unholy trinity in Paradise Lost.

Some opponents of authors Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Richard Dawkins have dubbed them "the Unholy Trinity" because their works openly attack religion.

In The Sandman, a series of graphic novels, as well as in Hellblazer, have appeared a type of "Unholy Trinity", called "the Triumvirate of Hell". It is composed with the fallen angel Lucifer, and the demons Azazel (not the one from Marvel Comics) and Beelzebub. They have been defeated by John Constantine, when he wanted to cure his lung cancer and save the soul of his friend, in the "Dangerous Habits" story arc.
