Amanozako is a demon in the series.

History[]

Amanozako (天逆毎*)? is a goddess of rebellion mentioned in the Wakan Sansai Zue, who is born when Susano-o lets his own ferocious spirit (Ara Mitama) build up inside him until he vomits her out. It is said that she is the ancestor deity of all yokai who share her short-fused temper and disobedience.

Amanozako has a son, named Amanojaku (天邪鬼*)?. In keeping with her obstinate nature, she conceives him entirely on her own, without the assistance of a partner. Her son is just as obstinate as she is, and he causes so much trouble that all eight million gods in heaven cannot stand him. Amanozaku is eventually elevated to the position of ruler over all the disobedient and malevolent kami.

Amanozako is said to like possessing the hearts of humans to manipulate their emotions and personalities.

Source of Amanozako was claimed to be Kujiki (旧事紀*)?, but any earlier mention of Amanozako is only found in Kujihonki Taiseikyou (先代旧事本紀大成経*)? whose authenticity has been disproven and it is treated largely as a forgery from the Enpō era.

Profile[]

Shin Megami Tensei V[]

"A Japanese goddess commonly thought to be the ancestor of the Tengu and Amanojaku.
The famed warrior Susano-o once allowed his tempestuous spirit to build up to such an intense degree, he vomited her out as a result. Similary to Susano-o, she has a wild personality and tends to go on a rampage if she doesn't get her way. It is said that she can hurl even the most powerful gods a great distance, and that her fangs can mangle the very sharpest of blades. Like amanojaku, she is prone to doing the exact opposite of what is expected."
Shin Megami Tensei V lore

Amanozako is a curious demon looking for "someone" and volunteers to stick with the protagonist who has recently acquired the power of Nahobino and is wandering over Da'at cluelessly.

Amanozako has a signature skill called Heavenly Counter that's similar to Counter, but deals Dark-type damage and lowers the target's attack.

Amanozako make-up.

  • The designer of the demon, Masayuki Doi, exclaimed that Amanozako was one of the last demons to be created for Shin Megami Tensei V.[1]
  • Early in her development, she was designed with a more orange skin tone, to make her feel closer to a Tengu or Amanojaku. But after thinking more about her, it was decided they'd go with her current look.[1]
  • During a #LOVE_SEGA segment in Tokyo Game Show 2021, make-up based on Amanozako's look was shown off.
