Ame no Sakugami's official artwork

Amanojaku (天の邪悪?, lit. "Heavenly Evil") or Ama no Sakugami (アマノサクガミ?, or 天逆神?) is a demon in the series. It is known as Windling in the English DemiKids series.


This little oni is mostly well known in Japan for the fairytale Urikohime (Melon Princess), in which a girl lets him in her house and it devours her and impersonates her using her flesh.



Shin Megami TenseiEdit

"Origin: Japan. An evil demon that can read people's minds. Also known as Ama no Sakugami, it reads minds, then says/does the opposite. It is also said to eat humans from the inside, then becoming them by wearing their skin."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Amanojaku appears in Shin Megami Tensei as the second boss when he eats and impersonates the protagonist's mother, after gaining entry by impersonating a policeman asking about the protagonist.

DemiKids Light & DarkEdit

"A smaller than average ogre that loves to play tricks on anyone it encounters."

Known as Windling, he has the power Cliffhanger.

Devil Children Fire/Ice BookEdit

Amanojaku is a boss in Ice Book, faced in Akuma no Hokora. He's assaulting his fellow demon Mecchii for being a pacifist and not wanting to take part in attacking the Devil Children. He attacks upon seeing Akira, but loses the battle and dies shocked at the strength of an Devil Child.

Devil Children Messiah RiserEdit

Amanojaku flees from the village in Fire Makai due to an attack by Imperium demons. After Jin beats them, the demon returns after the battle to give his thanks for saving his friend Nemea. On Akira's route an Amanojaku is trapped inside a snowman, which Amy Kashihara kicks and releases him. He flees once he sees Imperium soldiers nearby.

  • Like Echidna, Amanojaku has a theme opposite to its alignment 
  • In the iOS localization of Shin Megami Tensei, this demon is called "Amanojaku" in the demonic compendium, but in the visionary scene "Bloody Apron", it is addressed as "Amano Sakugami" instead.
