Death Icon IS Death (呪殺?, lit. "curse kill"), also known as Darkness, is a spell type in the series and the most recurring line of Dark Spells. Death spells usually focus on inflicting instant death on the enemy, though exceptions do exist.

Expel is the Light counterpart to Death.

General SpellsEdit

Mudo is the general death elemental spell.

Death skills are always in some way or other automatically blocked by bosses, in order to prevent them from being used to instantly kill the bosses. In games where the only Dark damaging skills are Death skills such as in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey and Persona 3, all bosses will have an innate void against Dark.

In Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse, Death skills do regular damage, but will instantly kill enemies during Smirk. If a boss is targeted by a Death skill from a character with Smirk, it will do regular damage instead of instantly killing it.
