Almighty Icon IS.png Almighty (万能, ban'nō)? skills carry a special, non-elemental property and are usually not hindered by defenses such as repel or drain, barring a few exceptions like that of innate Almighty resistance from certain bosses (Noah and Lucifer in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne), along with the new Passive skill Anti-Almighty in Devil Survivor 2. Almighty skills can be physical or magical.

In the Persona 2 duology, Almighty-elemental also includes some very generic ailment inflicting spells such as poison, seal, illusion and berserk and is resilient to enemies with all-purpose Magic resistance. The "elemental" that works the similar way in other installments is strictly called "Non-elemental" (無視, mushi).

All-Out Attacks in Persona 3 and after are considered Almighty.

  • The mythology behind Death Flies is quite straightforward - Beelzebub is commonly known as the "Lord of the Flies", which he uses to carry the souls of the dead.
  • Mount Sinai was the location where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. According to the Bible, a huge fire erupted as God descended onto the mountain. This is very appropriate due to it being Metatron's exclusive skill.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Exclusive[edit | edit source]

Parenthesized numbers are power levels used by the game for damage calculation. For comparison, Megido is 200, Megidola 300, Megidolaon 400, -dyne spells are 200, and Ma-dyne spells are 160. Also, all skills in Strange Journey are MP skills (no skills cost HP).

Name Power Cost Target
Moan Bullet Medium (150) 45 Random Enemies (1-3 hits)
Freischutz Heavy (200) 50 All Enemies
Riot Gun Copy Severe (200) 80 One Enemy
Babylon Goblet Heavy (300), 25% chance of inflicting Charm 65 All enemies
Mel Faize Heavy. Mastema (boss) only NA Entire Party
Sinner's Song Heavy. Chance of charm. Zelenin (Judge) Only. NA Entire Party
Great Flood Heavy. Lowers Agility. Mem Aleph Only. NA Entire Party

Moan Bullet is a skill on the guns Ebony Tear, Meteor Dragoon, and Peacemaker. Freischutz is a skill on the gun Meteor Dragoon. Riot Gun Copy is a skill on the gun Megido Fire. Due to the way damage from gun skills is calculated (factoring in the gun's normal attack power), these skills often do more damage than demon skills.

Desperate Hit's rating of Medium is misleading and that the official rating of 100 power is likely inaccurate, as against bosses, three or more hits (300-500 power) does more damage than Jihad (500 power)

Strangely, Zelenin's attack Megiddo Storm does electric damage, not almighty, regardless of its name having the same origin as the Megido spell chain.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the Chinese and Korean versions of Persona 5, the icon for Almighty Skills has been altered, and the radiation on the symbol is twisted. This is due to the original Almighty Symbol resembling a Rising Sun Flag, a symbol related to Japan's invasion during World War II, a sensitive topic in many other Asian countries.
