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.
