In Zoroastrianism, the Uncreated but not Eternal, the Evil Spirit. Angra Mainyu is one of the two original spirits of Zoroastrainism, the other being Ahura Mazda. He represents all the forces of evil in the Universe. There is some debate as to whether he is part of a cosmic dualism (and the counterpart of Ahura Mazda,) or part of a spiritual dualism (and the counterpart of Spenta Mainyu.)
