Matador appears as a boss in the twenty-seventh floor of Denshi Kairo, a solo dungeon in which the player can only clear three floors a day. Once the player have cleared them, the player can go to the next three or repeat the last three floors cleared. The only way to repear previous floors is restart from the beginning. The dungeon is also known as STEVEN because player characters access it by checking a computer and selecting the option "STEVEN", which opens a message writen by him and then gives the player character the option to enter.

"Charge me with all your strength! Your horns cannot pierce my soul!"
—Matador, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

Matador (マタドール, Matadooru) is a recurring demon in the series.

History

Matador is derived from the late Latin word matare, which means to subdue or kill. It is also the name of the toreros that perform in the bullfighting events famous in Spain. Matador is one of the toreros, and the word literally means "killer", as it the matador's job to kill the bull.

Appearances

Profile

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

"A Spanish Grim Reaper born from the pursuit of aesthetics killing. With his terrifying sword Espada, he now preys on humans rather than bulls."
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Compendium

Matador appears as a boss in the updated release of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, titled Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax. He is first mentioned by a Manikin in the Great Underpass of Ginza, where he is known as a "Grim Reaper". The Demi-fiend must defeat him in order to reach Ikebukuro, headquarters of the Mantra. Upon approaching near the demonic presence, the Demi-fiend was forcefully summoned into another realm by Matador, where Matador claims that a weak being like Demi-fiend doesn't deserve to hold the Candelabrum of Sovereignty, but knowing that the Demi-fiend will not give in without a fight, Matador engages the Demi-fiend to a battle.

He appears as a skeleton dressed in a bullfighter's costume, and speaks of fighting for an audience with style and flair, even though their present environment (a desolate wasteland dimension, used by all fiends) is lacking the aforementioned. After defeating Matador, the Demi-fiend gains the ability to fuse him by fusing any two demons whose fusion will result in a Yoma race demon, during a 1/8, 2/8, 3/8, or Half Kagutsuchi phase. Such a fusion requires a Deathstone, an item found only in the Labyrinth of Amala.
