Poltergeist is a type of ghost that enjoys causing mischief and terrorizing the living. They lift and move objects around and make loud and unexplainable noises. They are often associated with paranormal activity, and, rarely, demonic possession.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Profile[edit | edit source]

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE[edit | edit source]

"An apparition from German folk tales that is attached to a certain building and causes furniture and household objects to float around. Its name means "noisy ghost" or "noise-making monster" in German.
Today, the poltergeist phenomenon has been scientifically analyzed, and many theories have been proposed, but so far they have failed to produce a definitive explanation."
Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE compendium

Poltergeist can be contracted in Ichigaya, Kagurazaka Zhu Que Caverns' bronze-level instance, and Shinjuku Babel's docks. They appear alongside Legion in the normal bronze boss room for Kagurazaka Zhu Que Caverns.

Shin Megami Tensei IV[edit | edit source]

"A trickster ghost known for haunting houses.
It can do various things, from pulling harmless pranks like making loud noises and moving objects through the air, to dangerous, destructive acts, like starting fires and assaulting people. Poltergeist incidents often occur in homes with children or teenagers, and one theory states that the cause is a child's unstable mentality."
Shin Megami Tensei IV compendium

Poltergeist can be found in Ueno. It can teach Flynn the Sukunda and Needle Shot skills through its Demon Whisper. Poltergeist can evolve into Quicksilver upon reaching level 17.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[edit | edit source]

Poltergeist can be found in the Toyosu Shelter and the Konganji Passage in Ginza. It can teach the Sukunda, Tathlum Shot and Rapid Needle skills through its Demon Whisper. Poltergeist benefits from learning Gun, ailment and support skills. Poltergeist can evolve into Quicksilver at level 23.

Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army[edit | edit source]

Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army devil chart

Poltergeist can be found in the basement of the Daidouji Residence, Ginza-Cho and the Matrix Labyrinth of the Daidouji Factory during random encounters.

Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon[edit | edit source]

Poltergeist is one of the few demons that can be recruited in battle without negotiation (the first time) if save data is imported from Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army.

Persona 2[edit | edit source]

Any time a Persona has a "Change Form" mutation, there is a chance the mutation can fail, changing the Persona into Poltergeist rather than its usual mutation result. For this reason, the player should always keep a Poltergeist in the Velvet Room stock.

Jack Bros.[edit | edit source]

Poltergeist begin appearing the Temple of Nightmare area. They teleport away from players until they can be trapped in a dead end. When killed, they drop an item to extend the level's time limit.

Devil poltergeist.png

In the first day, Poltergeist appears from Daichi Shijima's cell phone out of the blue and cast the Bufu spell on other malignant demons to help him to get out of the crumbled subway station safely. In the third day, Daichi summons Poltergeist to extinguish the fire set by the horde of Legions. Though, Poltergeist in the game does not learn the ice spell by itself. Instead, it can only use the basic fire spell if without fusion.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE[edit | edit source]

Poltergeist appears in Illusory Daitou TV, past a sealed area that Itsuki must unlock with his Unity Skill, Ray of Light. It has 154 attack and 42 armor. When defeated, it may drop the Performa materials Poltergeist Force and Unruly Ectoplasm.
