Mudo (ムド*)? is a special Death skill.

Effect[edit | edit source]

Mudo's effect changes depending on the game:

  • In Shin Megami Tensei, Shin Megami Tensei II, and Shin Megami Tensei: if..., Mudo has a chance of instantly killing two targets.
  • In Megami Ibunroku Persona, Mudo will instantly kill Divine demons. Against other enemies, it will deal damage equal to a specific percentage of its target's maximum HP and the target will receive the same amount of damage at the end of every turn. This "ailment" cannot be cured and will last until either the end of the battle or the character dies. The amount of HP lost depends on the target's resistance to Death spells.
  • In Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse, Mudo deals regular damage but has a 30% chance of instantly killing its target if the user is smirking.
  • In Devil Children Black Book & Red Book and Devil Children White Book, Mudo deals regular damage.
  • In DemiKids Light & Dark and Devil Children Fire Book & Ice Book, Mudo deals regular damage with a chance of instantly killing its target.
  • In all other games, Mudo has a low chance of instantly killing its target.

Mudo is a death skill, a subtype of Dark Skills. Some games, like Persona 3 and Persona 4, merely refer to it as a dark skill. Persona 5 classifies Mudo as a curse skill, which in most games is a different subtype of dark skills.
