Megami Tensei Wiki
"Theurgy means "spiritual magic that could reach the gods" in Greek. To put it simply, it synchronizes with the user's emotions, and when the right conditions are met, allows them to unleash an attack of immense power."
Ikutsuki, about Theurgy

Theurgy (テウルギア, Theurgia)? is a battle mechanic introduced in Persona 3 Reload.



Unlocked once the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad receives the new gear on June 13, Theurgy is a powerful skill exclusive to each party member, which is activated by loading a special cartridge into the bottom of their Evoker grip and summoning their Personas.

Gameplay-wise, Theurgy skills can only be initiated by filling the respective combatant's "Theurgy Gauge". The gauge can be filled by performing actions such as melee attacks and Persona skills. Depending on the party member, certain actions will increase their gauge faster.[1] In addition, ambushing, unlocked via the Security Site Note when used on the computer, also increases the protagonist's Theurgy Gauge slightly.

The gauge carries over after a battle is finished but resets daily. Each party member begins a new exploration with a random amount in their gauge. The gauge is cut in half if the combatant faints and is then revived. While under the effect of an ailment, the gauge does not increase, and Theurgy skills cannot be used.

Theurgy skills cannot miss.[2] Offensive attacks ignore elemental resistances and physical/magic walls. Criticals and weakness exploits grant One More.

The protagonist and Aigis (Episode Aigis only), as Wild Card wielders, have access to multiple Theurgy skills by summoning certain Persona duos that have been registered in his Compendium: the mechanic acts as a substitute for fusion spells by lifting from its skill pool.

In his final battle against SEES on January 31, Takaya Sakaki uses an Evoker he obtained earlier to deploy his own Theurgy.

After evolving their Persona, each party member gains a second Theurgy skill. Uniquely, Koromaru possesses 2 skills right when he joins the team. Fuuka, as a navigator, instead has her current Theurgy replaced by an upgraded version when she gains Juno. On the other hand, Shinjiro Aragaki, for plot reasons, can only have one Theurgy.

Theurgy, or "Theurgia," is one of the two major branches of the magical arts alongside thaumaturgy, referring to the ritual practices associated with invocation and evocation of the presence of one or more deities or godforms. One prominent goal of theurgy is to achieve henosis, meaning to unite with the divine, as well as to perfect oneself.
