Mephisto is the devil puppet that was made and named after the most famous devil, a character in the German folktale, "Faust". André Toulon used him in his puppet shows while in Cairo, Egypt during 1912. It is unknown if Mephisto was ever alive, but Toulon claimed he was a stringless puppet that moved on it's own.
Though he is never actually seen doing anything autonomously in the films, he remains a popular puppet for fans of the series, possibly because of his interesting design. Mephisto was destroyed in a fire by a Cairo Merchant, who later gives the secret of life to André Toulon.
During the second World War, Toulon recycled the head and used it for a puppet he made to mock Major Kraus, the man who shot and killed his wife. That puppet was Blade.
- His head looks exactly the same as Blade's, but Blade does not have the devil horns.
- It can be infered (though the film itself doesn't imply this) that Mephisto's head was given to Blade as symbolism. Blade was modeled after Nazi agent Major Kraus, whom Toulon saw as pure evil, and Mephisto is a devil.
- The Full Moon action figure of Mephisto was released with the accessory of a crystal ball yet he was never seen with one.
