Shin Megami Tensei V Demons Guide

If you’re looking to learn more about the Shin Megami Tensi V Demons, then we’ve got you covered with this guide where we’ll be listing down all the information you need to know about them, including their locations and recruiting tips.

Shin Megami Tensei V Demons

Locating Demons in the world of Shin Megami Tensei V and fusing them to create stronger Demons is a crucial aspect of the game. Therefore, it’s best that you learn everything there is to know about Shin Megami Tensei V Demons.

First off, you need to learn what kind of Demons there are in the game. As of right now, there are more than 214 Demons available in the game. These Demons are divided into 35 different races.

How to Recruit Demons

Now that you know what kind of Demons there are in Shin Megami Tensei V, let’s go over some useful tips you need to know to recruit them.

Level Up

The first thing you need to know is that in order to successfully recruit a Demon, your level should be at least equal to theirs.

This is because of the fact that a Demon can actually refuse to serve you if your level is lower than that of the Demon; as Demons consider such people weaklings.

Recruit During New Moons

If there is a “1/8” reading at the top left corner of your screen, that means there is a new moon outside.

This is a very important thing to keep note of as, during new moons, Demons are in a much better mood than usual. Hence, you’ll have a considerably easier time recruiting Demons during a new moon.

So if you’re having trouble recruiting a certain Demon, just wait till there’s a new moon and try again.

Isolate The Demon

When trying to recruit a Demon in SMT V, make sure they are isolated and not surrounded by other Demons so you don’t get ambushed.

If the Demon that you’re trying to recruit is in a group, make sure to eliminate the other Demons around it before you try to recruit it.

Negotiate with Demons

When you’re trying to recruit a Demon, they may ask you for something that you don’t have, or some precious item that you’re not willing to give.

In a situation like this, you can simply just ask the Demon to ask for something else by selecting the respective option. When you do that, there’s a chance they might ask for something easy to give like HP or MP.

So make sure to select the “Ask for something else” option when you find yourself in a situation like this.

Increase Demon Stock

As you recruit more Demons, you’ll quickly realize that you’re running out of space. When this happens, there’s no need to worry as you can easily increase your Demon stock, allowing you to hold more Demons at a time.

To do this, you first need to destroy the first abscess in the game, which will unlock your miracles.

Once you do that, head over to the World of Shadows and select the Apotheosis option. Select “Learn Miracles” and tab over to the Awakening section.

Here, you’ll see a miracle called “Divine Garrison”. This miracle will increase your Demon stock by 1 or 2, depending on the level of the miracle that you’re unlocking.

So whenever you’re low on Demon space, just unlock these miracles and you’ll be good to go.

Don’t Give Up on Demons

Lastly, if you don’t successfully recruit a Demon at first, you shouldn’t just give up on it.

A good thing about the Demon recruitment system is that as long as the Demon doesn’t go away, you can keep talking to it and try to recruit it over and over again.

All you need to do is wait for the Demon to attack you and once it’s your turn, select the option to talk with it and keep trying to recruit it.
