Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Best Demons to Fuse and Recruit

Purchase the Prayer and Warrior’s Conception miracles before fusing demons.

Miracle Cost Effects
Prayer of Strength 200 Glory The demon gains a +1 bonus to Strength upon leveling up.
Prayer of Vitality 130 Glory The demon gains a a +1 bonus to Vitality upon leveling up.
Prayer of Magic 200 Glory The demon gains a a +1 bonus to Magic upon leveling up.
Prayer of Agility 70 Glory The demon gains a a +1 bonus to Agility upon leveling up.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Best Miracles to Get

Decide which demon you want to get via fusion and which ones you want to use as materials.

After obtaining the recommended Miracles above, start choosing the demons you fuse and level up and which demons to use as fusion materials. For demons used as materials, try reach a base level total of 142 to maximize fusion bonuses for the offspring.

Register Element Demons at 99.

Element Demons can be used normal fusions but not special fusions. Registering the four types of Element Demons at the maximum level in the Demonic Compendium will make it easier to fuse the best demons in the long run.

Level up the demons to be used as materials to increase the fusion stat bonuses.

After deciding the demon you want to fuse, start preparing the demons to be used as fusion materials. This is also the best time to look for material demons you can use who also happen to have skills that you want to pass on to the resulting demon offspring. This will save you the trouble having to spend time inheriting skills later.

Since you have already obtained the Warrior’s Conception Miracle at this point, the resulting demon offspring should gain useful stat bonuses based on the material demons’ own stats.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Fast Leveling Guide

The base level total of material demons determines the fusion bonuses earned, capping out at +100.

The maximum fusion bonus for each stat is +20 for a total of +100 stat points. Note that this can be achieved by reaching the base level total limit of material demons which is at 142 (assuming each material demon’s sufficiently leveled).

Base Level Total (2 Demons via Normal Fusion) Fusion Stat Bonus
142 and above 100
141-135 95
134-127 90
126-119 85
118-110 80
109-100 75
99-90 70
89-78 65
77-64 60
63-45 55
44 or less 50

Check the stats growth of the resulting demon.

You can check the stats gain prior to fusing demons which includes bonuses from leveling up and fusion bonuses based on material demons used.

The stats increased via fusion is displayed as the sum of fusion bonuses and the increase when leveling up. This means that you should calculate each factor (fusion bonuses and level-up increase) separately.

The increased after leveling up is random.

When a demon levels up, will gain a +3 on a random stat.

This random stat is rerolled whenever you enter and exit the World of Shadows. If there is a specific stat you want to increase, try re-entering the World of Shadows multiple times.

Fuse the demon and level them up.

Once the fusion bonuses have been properly applied, fuse the demon. Afterwards, level up the demon to further increase stats and learn skills.

Use Sutras and Incense to increase skill potentials and stats.

The last step to creating the best demons is to use Sutras and Incense to gain additional skill potentials and stat points. This is essentially a way to “fine tune” your demons to make them the most effective they can be for their roles in battle.
