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. She was created by the Tengu, who wanted a Great Tengu to lead them through the end of the world; like Aogami, she was born when a Proto-Fiend was imbued with Magatsuhi. When she first came into being, her power went wild and she fled, eventually wishing to reunite with her father, Susano-o and rejected the tengu, who spent a significant amount of time looking for her.

She takes the form of a tiny floating girl with blue hair, golden eyes, pointy ears, and crow wings on her back, wearing high platform sandals, and decorative Japanese robes with a white and red color scheme. Amanozako is bratty and proud, but despite Aogami's misgivings she's nothing but helpful, fitting for the goddess of rebellion and defiance of social norms. She is actually powerful, being powerful enough to warrant Bethel Japan being on high alert.

The protagonist first encounters her being surrounded by a group of Preta who want to eat her before she gets them to take notice of Nahobino, pulling him into the conflict to save her. The person she is looking for is her father Susano-o. She's been searching for her "soulmate," although she temporarily breaks off from them under the pretense of "important business," later admitting that her "soulmate" is actually the protagonist. Aogami believes that she is intending to prey on the protagonist, but it turns out that she genuinely wishes to be his friend. Later on, the protagonist runs into her when her power spirals out of control, but is able to subdue her and remove her Essence, apparently restoring her back to normal.

When they arrive at Taito, Amanozako runs into him and Tao Isonokami, assisting them as a navigator throughout the region. As the protagonist defeats the deities holding the key pieces to the Empyrean, Amanozako explains the history and purpose that each key held to create a proper world. After acquiring the last key piece, a Kurama Tengu appears, prompting her to flee. Fortunately, she is able to elude the tengu once more.

During "The Destined Leader," the Kurama Tengu realize she has links to the protagonist, with one stationed at Tokyo Tower demanding she return to them. She refuses to return to the tengu, and with the protagonist supporting her (regardless of their decision to hand her over or not), the Kurama Tengu summons Zaou-Gongen and fights alongside it, but both are defeated. The tengu then realize that they are far too strong and give up the chase, much to her delight. She then reveals that she is comfortable around the protagonist because she could sense Susano-o's presence in them and joins their party in gratitude for saving her from the tengu, provided that space is available. If she joins their party, she is no longer eligible as a navigator around Da'at but becomes unlockable for fusion.

Completing Amanozako's "The Destined Leader" subquest is one of the methods to unlock the "Create a world for humanity only" ending in the neutral "Destroy the Throne" path.

Amanozako requires a special fusion of Kurama Tengu, Koppa Tengu, Nue and Kin-Ki in order to be created. She retains her Heavenly Counter skill, a Dark-type counter whenever she is hit with a physical attack. If Amanozako is in the protagonist's stock when they attempt to speak to Koppa Tengu, she will interject and initiate a special conversation that results in Koppa Tengu giving her some items before leaving.

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.
  • The area revolving around the quest "A Power Beyond Control" cannot be accessed while Amanozako is the protagonist's quest navigator. In attempts to access it while the quest is active, she'll remark she gets this worrying feeling something bad's going to happen to the protagonist if they go, wanting to go back.
    • Although beating boss Amanozako itself will unlock her as an optional quest navigator, this roadblock will not disappear until the quest itself has been completed by talking to the Angel that requested it.
  • Amanozako can no longer be taken as a quest navigator after she opts to join the party in the quest "The Destined Leader."
