Loup-garou is a demon in the series.

History[]

The loup-garou, also spelled roux-ga-roux, rougarou, and rugaru, is a creature known in Laurentian French communities. It is related to the traditional concept of a werewolf, as its name originates from the French word for "werewolf." According to Cajun legend, it is a humanoid creature with the head of a dog or wolf and roams swamps, sugar cane fields and woodlands.

Other details of the rougarou vary greatly. Some Cajun elders claim that the creature hunts down Catholics who disregard Lent and that people become rougarou themselves by breaking Lent seven years in a row. Another story says that the rougarou curse lasts 101 days and is passed on through blood-sucking. Yet another explanation for the creature states that witches either become rougarou or place the curse on others.

Shin Megami Tensei V[]

"A type of werewolf originating in France. It appears human during the day, but transforms into its beastly form at night, when it has been known to viciously attack humans.
They are said to have once been ordinary human beings. However, upon turning into a loup-garou, one cannot regain their humanity ever again."
Shin Megami Tensei V lore

A Loup-Garou intercepts the protagonist in the Container Yard when they are busy rescuing students from Jouin High School after it is attacked by demons, having picked out one of the victims to feast on. The protagonist kills him after a brief battle.

Loup-Garou can be found as a common enemy, who are significantly stronger than the one encountered as a boss fight. They are one of the few demons with their own unique personality type in negotiation, signaled by their use of French in their speech.

If Manananggal is in the protagonist's stock when they attempt to speak to Loup-Garou, she will speak to him. The two demons talk about their origins and appearance. Loup-garou will confide to the demonness that he's still in pain over his fate of losing his former self, before Manananggal suggests he appreciates the beauty left in him and let go of his suffering, in which Loup-Garou will give her an item before leaving, appreciating her kind words.

Loup-Garou comes with his unique skill, Souffle D'éclair, a severe Electric attack that damages one foe. The attack in particular is one of the strongest in terms of its base power, and is the strongest Magical attack in the game.
