Megami Tensei Wiki

An Abscess in Shin Megami Tensei V.

Abscesses (マガツカ, Magatsuka)? are locations in Shin Megami Tensei V.


Abscesses serve as obstacles in Da'at. Abscesses enshroud a very wide region of the map with a purple miasma, making it difficult to read and navigate, as well as obscure many icons within, such as Treasure Chests or Amalgams. By approaching the Abscess and slashing it or walking into it, the party will have to battle a set of unrecruitable enemies.

Once these demons are defeated, the respective abscess they are tied to will be destroyed in turn. Not only may a new path be opened and the part of the map it obscured will be visible, Magatsuhi can be obtained and new Miracles are unlocked for purchase within the World of Shadows.

While very close to the vicinity of Abscesses, various powerful enemies will be spawned within to prevent approach. They cannot be talked to due to the aura emitted by the Abscess.
