Samsara (回転説法, Kaiten Seppō)? is a special Expel skill.


Samsara has a high chance of instantly killing all enemies. It is the signature attack of Daisoujou in any game where it is in (if it learns the attack) and cannot be inherited to any other persona or Demon. Furthermore, despite Daisoujou is a recurring Demon in the series, only Daisoujou from the Persona series can learn Samsara.

Samsara, like other instant death skills do not affect bosses. The way that the boss blocks it differs from game to game. If there are no damage-dealing Light or Dark skills in a game, all bosses have an innate immunity to such attacks. If there are any damage dealing Light or Dark skills, then bosses will automatically block all instant kills even if they are weak to these elements.

In any game where damage-dealing Light skills do not exist, the skill is Light type. Otherwise, the skill is Bless type.
