"What have I told you countless times, sweetheart? Regarding you, work, and my affairs?"
―Valentino, to Angel in the prequel comics

Valentino is one of the many Overlords of Hell, as well as the owner of Porn Studios, making him Angel Dust's boss. He is one of the main antagonists of Hazbin Hotel.

Appearance

Valentino is a slender moth demon[note 2] with muted blue skin, hot pink eyes covered by pink and gold heart sunglasses. He wears a matching top hat, with two antennae, one having a feather-like appearance and the other looking damaged. He has a red fur-lined coat with more of his fuzz as his 'collar' having hearts implanted in it, and plain white fluffy cuffs. He has a mouth full of sharp hot pink teeth with one gold tooth which is also shared by Angel Dust. Additionally, Valentino is of high stature, being significantly taller than Angel Dust, who is estimated to be around eight feet.[2]

Valentino has black hands that slightly go lighter at the tips and the wrists. His coat has an appearance of zebra print beneath, he also wears a matching top hat, and he sports long black boots with stiletto heels. He wears fishnets under his coat.[note 3]

Personality

Valentino has been described by Faustisse as being about as level-headed as his fellow Overlord Vox.[note 4] The comics and music video for "Addict" shows that he is very controlling and abusive towards Angel Dust, taking most of the earnings he makes for work and has forcibly kissed and raped Angel several times, enough to give him some form of possible PTSD.

Abilities

Natural Abilities

  • Charisma: Valentino possesses a flamboyant and vivacious charm that allows him to persuade others to his authority.

Skillset

  • Weapon Proficiency: As shown in the prequel comics, Valentino was able to shoot the mafia boss Angel Dust was making a deal with straight in the head all the way from the backseat of his limousine.

Unique Abilities

  • Smoke Manipulation: In the "ADDICT" music video, a strange red smoke that Valentino exhales from cigarettes has the ability to change or form different shapes and enter the bodies of other demons, supposedly depending on Valentino's preference. However, the same smoke is also present in a cigarette Angel is smoking, making it unknown whether this is natural to Valentino or standard of the cigarette he uses.

Trivia

  • Valentino is an Italian name, meaning "brave or strong". It can also mean "a ladies' man". Given his status as a pimp, it’s fitting.
  • Valentino would be the kind of person to have a collection of canes.[3]
  • It has been hinted that he and Vox are somewhat romantically involved, at least within the Voxtagram stories, which are potentially non-canon. The comments made by both Velvet and Stolas on one of Valentino's Voxtagram posts further supports the idea.[1]
  • According to the canonically unofficial Voxtagram account, the fur collar around his neck is supposedly a part of his body.[4]
    • In the same account, Valentino was shown to have a creature named Queef he kept as a pet before he killed it for annoying him.
