Meta (超人?, lit. "Super-Human") is a boss race in the series. It is composed of human enemies that can use magic and supernatural creatures with the appearance of humans. The English name of the race is likely a reference to the term "metahuman" used in superhero fiction stories. This race can deal severe damage to the player if they do not share the same alignment with the demon.
