Shin Megami Tensei V - Demon Essence Fusion Guide

Demon essences are a new type of skill mechanic introduced in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance (SMT 5: Vengeance). In simple terms, essences are items that contain a demon’s skills and affinities which can be transferred to the main character (Nahobino) and to other demon allies through Essence Fusion.

How to Get Essences

Essences can be obtained from treasure boxes and amalgams while exploring the field or acquired directly from demons by fulfilling requests (sub quests).

Effects of Essence Fusion

As mentioned, the main character and demon allies will be able to inherit the skills and affinities contained in an essence, allowing you to adjust their characteristics and abilities to gain the advantage against specific enemies in the game. This makes essences function somewhat similarly to Magatama in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster (SMT 3: Nocturne HD Remaster), though the latter were only usable by the main character.

How to Use Essences

Each essence contains a demon’s set of skills which give you the freedom to pick which ones you want to equip on your character or demon ally. Experiment with the best combinations with your team when going up against tough enemies, especially bosses, to gain the upper-hand in battle.
