Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne[edit | edit source]
The Demi-Fiend charges magical power in front of his face, before launching deadly beams from his eyes at a single enemy. It has the highest offensive power Demi-Fiend can learn, and exerts unreasonable power when applying auxiliary magic. Because it is a Almighty-based physical skill, it is effective against all enemies.
Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[edit | edit source]
As before, Freikugel is exclusive to the Demi-Fiend in the quest "Messiahs in the Diamond Realm". It deals heavy Almighty damage to a single target, and is complemented further by Demi-Fiends passive skills Pierce and Almighty Pleroma.

History[edit | edit source]
Made famous by the German opera Der Freischütz (The Freeshooter), the Freikugeln (singular Freikugel) were a set of magic bullets which never miss the shooter's target thanks to a deal with the devil. However, the devil would choose the final bullet's target.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
After Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, subsequent installments which introduce the same skill (至高の魔弾) which deals Gun-type (instead of Almighty-type) damage have the skill name localized as Riot Gun instead. The localization of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse reintroduces "Freikugel" specifically for the Demi-fiend's unique skill which deals Almighty damage, to distinguish Riot Gun in the same game. This distinction via skill names is not present in the Japanese version of the game.
