Satanael as he appears in Soul Hackers.

"Shemyaza and Azazel have fallen, and only I remain. But I'm fine with that. As long as I have Manitou, I can collect souls. Even better, I can have the winnings all to myself."
—Satanael, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Satanael (サタナエル, Satanaeru)? is a demon in the series.


In the second Book of Enoch, Satanael is mentioned as a leader of the fallen angels that rebelled against YHVH, by refusing to bow to the human Enoch, leading to his imprisonment. Due to his name and role, he is considered an interpretation of Lucifer.

In some Gnostic traditions, Satanael is said to be an angel that once served the Demiurge. He rebelled when he realized that the Demiurge was not the true God and granted humanity the knowledge to liberate themselves from the Demiurge. In other traditions, he is said to have created the material universe as a second heaven to rule over and became the God of the Old Testament, making him an interpretation of the Demiurge.

According to the beliefs of the Catars, a notorious medieval heretical creed, Satanael was the angelic name of Satan before Michael the archangel removed the -el suffix (signifying the loss of his angelic nature) and sealed him in Hell. In this interpretation, Satanael is the radical opposite of God and the ruler of the material world.

During the final events of the Monolith, Spooky will appear at the ruined transmission tower, possessed by Satanael, who plans to take over now that Azazel and Shemyaza are gone. Taunting the party, he suggests they "thank him for letting them die by their friend's hand," which he uses as a puppet and human shield in the boss fight.

Persona 5

"An archangel who is said to be the form of Satan before he fell from Heaven. The second son of God, he rebelled against Him for freedom and bestowed free will and chaos upon humanity."
Persona 5 background

Satanael is the ultimate Persona of both the Fool Arcana and the protagonist. He is summoned by breaking the chains sealing him as Arsene during the final battle, where the cheers of millions of Tokyo citizens heal and protect the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. His ultimate attack that finishes Yaldabaoth off in one blow is the Sinful Shell, an attack that combines the power of the Seven Deadly Sins into one in order to kill a god.

Satanael can be fused in New Game Plus. The protagonist must be level 95 and perform an advanced fusion using Arsene, Anzu, Ishtar, Satan, Lucifer and Michael. The protagonist can bypass the level requirement if the Confidant with Caroline and Justine has been maxed. Due to the ingredient requirements, the protagonist must have completed the Confidant with Ann Takamaki and Hifumi Togo at some point, and have been down the true ending route. Satanael is the only Persona to learn the Victory Cry skill, as well as one of three to learn Riot Gun, Cosmic Flare, Heat Riser and Unshaken Will. Itemizing Satanael through Electric Chair execution yields the Paradise Lost knife, the ultimate melee weapon for the protagonist. A hidden achievement will be unlocked once Satanael is fused.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth

Satanael is the ultimate Persona of the P5 hero.

  • Satanael's role and summoning in Persona 5 is based on the series' interpretation of Lucifer, where he is summoned to champion freedom and chaos against the tyranny of Yaldabaoth's order. His summoning for the final battle even has him do the pose of Kazuma Kaneko's demon Lucifer artwork from Shin Megami Tensei II.
  • Satanael's fusion requirements in Persona 5 are not as long a list as the requirements for Izanagi-no-Okami, but make up for it in sheer expense; requiring anywhere from 800k to over 1 million yen to re-summon the component parts alone and not counting the extra money needed if the fusion is done under its base level of 95.
