Daemon is a demon first appearing in Shin Megami Tensei V.


Daimon (δαίμων), or Daemon, is the divine spirit in ancient Greece whose name means "godlike" or "divider." During the East Roman Empire, Christians saw the statues of Daimon as part of the paganism and began using the word to denote any evil supernatural being.

This usage was made into the Old and New Testaments and lent to the English word "demon."


When the protagonist first finds himself in Da'at, he's attacked by a horde of Daemons. An NPC Agathion in Hamamatsuchou issues a sidequest which asks the protagonist to slay three Daemons as revenge of their harassment around the area. Doing so will reward the protagonist with "Agathion's Essence."
