Cu Chulainn, the most recurring Genma

Genma (幻魔, lit. Illusion Demon) or Demigod is a race of demons in the Shin Megami Tensei series. Other than Demigods, this race contains important benevolent and protective gods with human-like form, like Beldr, Tlaloc or Yarilo. This race is usually viewed as the "upper" counterpart of the Yoma race as hinted by some of the demons swaying between these two races throughout the series, or some of the Genma demons evolved from other Yoma demons, such as Ganesha. They are Light-Neutral and belong to the Magica species.

Genmas have the Phantasma Racial Skill, which allows the team to move through obstacles (and enemy teams) rather than needing to circumvent them. Their movement cost is also halved, allowing the team to move again sooner than usual.

Devil Survivor 2[]

Genmas have the Phantasma Racial Skill, which allows the team to move through obstacles (and enemy teams) rather than needing to circumvent them. Their movement cost is also halved, allowing the team to move again sooner than usual. Stronger Genma demons have this skill changed to True Phantasm, which also grants an option for the team to teleport next to a friendly team up to 5 squares away at the cost of some of the Genma's MP.
