Bugbear or Bugs is a demon in the series.

History

Bugbear, or simply Bugs, is a type of Hobgoblin that is comparable to the Boogeyman (Bugaboo) in folklore. In lore, the Bugbear was depicted as a creepy bear that lurked in the woods to scare children. Bugbear was used to frighten children into behaving or obeying their parents.

Its name is derived from the Celtic word bug which means "evil spirit" or "goblin."

The Shadow of Yumeko Mogami takes the form of Bugs when confronted in Mementos during the request The Lovesick Cyberstalking Girl. During the battle, she lacks the weakness to Nuclear skills and has additional skills such as Marakunda, Brain Shake and Stagnant Air. Defeating Shadow Mogami will yield the Sticky Hairball key item, which allows Bugs to be fused through an advanced fusion of Pixie, Pisaca and Hariti once the protagonist reaches level 49. Bugbear is one of three Personas to learn the Triple Down gun skill and is a source of the Evade Phys skill.

Bugs is also one of the Personas used by Justine in the optional boss fight against the Velvet Room attendants.
