Makarakarn (マカラカーン, Makarakān)? is a Prayer skill.

Effect[edit | edit source]

In the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, Makarakarn creates a barrier on all allies that lasts for a single turn, which protects them from magical attacks, subsequently reflects them back to the attacker, and costs the attacker all of their Turn Press icons in games that use the Press Turn system.

In the Persona series, Makarakarn erects a barrier on 1 ally, which protects them from 1 magical attack, and subsequently reflects it back to the attacker.

Regardless of series, Makarakarn does not provide protection from Almighty Skills.
