Satan is full of pride, and fully expects to unseat his Creator one day. That's what all the hub-bub will be about during the Tribulation.
We have to ask forgiveness. This be the case, wouldn't Satan? He has no intention of doing that.
Remember, also, that we are not angels, but humans. Hell wasn't created for us, but Satan and the fallen angels. We earned a place in Hell, but God worked in the Divine intervention that does not violate the Law. Christ was the sacrifice to wash away the sin. We have to ask for it, though.
I'm going to move this over to spirituality and theology, as there will be people there who can do a much better job than I at explaining it.
By the way, a VERY good question, thirddensity!

So could we as humans forgive angels? If we all forgave Satan for temptation and the things he tries to empower us to do, wouldn't that solve the problem right there? After all if he was completley forgiven, he would have no power. Correct?
23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
1 On another day the angels [a] came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 2 And the LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?"
Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."
