Incense is special type of item in the series.

Role[edit | edit source]

Incense is a special type of item that increases a playable character's stats and fully restores their HP and MP. Typically they are only available for base stats (St, Ma, Lu, etc), increasing a single stat by 1, however some games feature Incense that can be used for HP and MP, increasing them by 10. A few games also feature incense that increase all stats by 1 or 2. However, in Shin Megami Tensei IV, each Incense found is based on the 5 stats, and using one heals all HP and MP of a character, as well as raising the stat it is named after by 3.

Types of Incense[edit | edit source]

  • St: Increases strength and attack
  • Ma: Increases magic, MP, magic attack, and sometimes magic defense.
  • In: Increases wisdom, magic defense, MP, and sometimes magic attack.
  • Vi: Increases HP and defense
  • Ag: Increases hit, speed, and avoid
  • Lu: Increases critical, drop rate, hit, and avoid
