The Ten armies of Mara (Satan, not necessarily a personal entity, but the forces of negativity that can arise and tempt us from not obtaining enlightenment):

1. Sensual pleasures

2. Discontent

3. Hunger and thirst

4. Craving

5. Sloth and torpor

6. Fear

7. Doubt

8. Conceit and ingratitude

9. Gain, renown, and honor, falsely received

10. Self-exaltation and disparaging others

(from Sutta Nipata 3.2)
