Profile[edit | edit source]

Shin Megami Tensei IV[edit | edit source]

Once a demon has learned the last of its hidden skills during level up, a Whisper event will take place, where they can pass off any of their skills to Flynn, save for Auto Skills and certain specific skills. If he already has a skill from the demon's skillset, it will be strengthened, decreasing the MP cost and increasing the attack damage to a degree. The number of times a skill can stack this way depends on the type of skill. Elemental skills stack to 8 while stat buffing/decreasing skills stack to 3.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[edit | edit source]

Whisper events are still the same in Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse, although this time the maximum rank is 9 for damage skills and 5 for other support skills.

Demons also gain skill affinities which can power up their skills in a manner akin to the protagonist. Demons often have affinities for skills corresponding to their own resistances, and penalties for those corresponding to their weaknesses. Like with skill bonuses, the maximum possible affinity, positive or negative, is 9 for damage skills and 5 for supportive skills.

Skills and costs are now modified by percentages instead of specific numbers.
