S HIN MEGAMI TENSEI ENEMIE SThis is a list of enemies, hazards, and other threats from the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona series.BERITHHealth:06Attack:04Defense:05Class:DemonBerith are demons that have taken a shape in imitation of a Duke of Hell. They resemble knights upon red horses, and consider themselves chivalrous gentlemen and lords--however, anyone who speaks to them without proper manners, they will skewer. Being ancient demons, their idea of proper manners is veryspecific, such that many Berith can’t even tolerate each other. They are also habitual liars, though they know a great deal about the past, present, and future if one can work through those lies. If they throw their spear, it can disappear and re-appear in the Berith’s hand, and their horses can breathe fire. The rider and its horse are one, technically both the Berith; they will not separate for long if they can avoid it, and they share stats and combat turns. That being said, the rider is weak to Electric based attacks (due to his armor), and the horse is weak to Cold based attacks (due to its affinity to fire).IPPON-DATARAHealth:12Attack:06Defense:05Class:DemonRare monsters indeed, Ippon-Datara are blacksmith demons (sometimes said to be ghosts, or old blacksmithing gods) with one leg and one eye. They are bitter isolationists, rarely tolerating intruders to their dens--but are also responsible for some incredible weaponry, with centuries upon centuries of experience under their belts. An Ippon-Datara will attack with its sledgehammer, first and foremost, striking out at whatever it can reach. Some are able to conjure the fires of the forge, spontaneously lighting targets aflame and inflict Burning to one victim as a side action; others stick to purely physical combat. An Ippon-Datara can strike any enemies within 5 feet of it, making multiple attacks per round.JACK FROSTHealth:05Attack:04Defense:02Class:DemonThough adorable at first glance, these mischievous demons have no qualms with freezing to death those that they dislike. They’re said to be winter fairies or snow spirits, responsible for leaving frost patterns on windows in the winter. They’re child-like, for better or worse--innocent in their intentions, but with no sense of responsibility or the weight of their actions. Jack Frosts can breathe magical bursts of icy air, which in addition to dealing Cold based damage, inflicts Freezingstatus if it isn’t fully defended against. Jack Frosts are not only immune to extreme cold and Cold damage, they’re actually healed from it, rather than harmed by it. They are, on the other hand, weak to Fire based damage.LEGIONHealth:16Attack:05Defense:04Class:DemonNamed after a Biblical entity, Legions are multitudes of souls clustered into one body. They’ve lost all sense of individuality, now knowing only hatred and anger. They’re formed when many ghosts suffering similar pain find each other. From a distance, they attack with psychic anguish--filling the mind of a target with tormented thought, and causing pain to the mind. They can attack up to 3 people at once mentally. If forced into close combat (or when dealing with enemies immune to psychic attacks), a Legion can also simply ram itself into a target. At the beginning of a fight, a Legion will use an ability called Evil Smile; any who can see the Legion must succeed on a defense check, or be inflicted withFear status. A Legion’s defense is considered 2 higher against Fire and Cold based damage.ORTHRUSHealth:07Attack:06Defense:04Class:DemonThese two headed devil dogs take on the form of a Greek myth, a monster said to be slain by Hercules. Though capable of reasoning and sometimes even speech, Orthrus are hateful, savage beasts prone to letting their instincts (and their hunger) drive their decisions. They are often bribed (or forced) to work as guards for more powerful demons, or even occult summoners. In addition to being incredibly fast and having a powerful bite, Orthrus can breathe fire out of both their mouths. They also have impeccable senses, able to smell and hear even better than normal canines--as a result, they are immune to Blindstatus. However, Orthrus are weak to Coldbased damage.SARASVATIHealth:09Attack:05Defense:03Class:DemonSarasvati are demons taking the form of a Hindu goddess. Like their namesake--a goddess of knowledge, music, and the arts--they’re both knowledgeable and passionate about culture and untapped wisdom, and are said to be skilled in every art known to man. If one can offer them something they desire--usually a sacrifice of fine art, hidden knowledge, or a grand performance--the trade can be worth it, as Sarasvati are able to heal people and remove status effects. A Sarasvati negotiated with in this fashion will typically make one, perhaps a couple of deals, and then move on to a different place. If offended or provoked, however, a Sarasvati can also be a dangerous opponent; they are able to conjure ice magic, dealing Cold damage from within a target, and inflicting Freezing status on their foes.
