The Elements or Prime (精霊, Seirei, lit. "spirits") are a recurring type of demon in the series. They are named as such due to their being representations of the four elements: earth, fire, wind and water. Several titles divide them between high-level and low-level elementals.
Elements are usually created by fusing two demons of the same race (except for some "high-tier" races, Element or Mitama). Fusing two different Elements will give a Mitama instead, or simply be impossible to do in some early installments.
Element demons generally do not stand out as combatants. They are more often used in demon fusion, wherein the other demon fused with it will always result in the next higher or lower level demon of the same race. This helps the player to complete the Demonic Compendium more quickly without fiddling with the fusion chart, but the trade off may be a demon with lackluster skills compared to normal fusion combinations.
Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King AbaddonEdit
Element Order is a classification of Demon. They appear in 4 different Training Halls in different parts of the capital but cannot be recruited, instead Raidou must fuse them. Like other games fusing Elements together create Mitamas. They tend to drop gemstones or give them as gifts. Elements have no skills that can be used on the field.
