Ananta

Ananta's artwork from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner

Ananta (アナンタ?) is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Born from the mouth of the sleeping Balarama (sun god's brother) it devoured all but Balarama's head.

Shesha is the king of all nagas according to Hindu mythology and one of the primal beings of creation. He is sometimes called Ananta Shesha which means "Endless Shesha" as he is said to hold all the planets in the universe on his hoods. He is usually depicted as a massive coiled serpent with as many as five to one thousand heads, sometimes wearing an ornate crown on each head. The heads are not only venomous but spew fire as well.

Shesha is used by Vishnu as a bed, and he is often found sleeping upon his back. Shesha will also constantly be found singing about the glories of Vishnu from all his many mouths.

One story of Shesha tells of when he challenged the devas, claiming that only the great Hindu Triad could defeat him. Only the god of wind, Vayu, accepted his challenge. Shesha wrapped himself around a large mountain and told Vayu that he would be the winner should he destroy the mountain. Vayu created powerful storms, but Shesha simply enlarged himself and swallowed up the storms. Vayu, weakened from his attempts to defeat Shesha, was overpowered and swallowed by the serpent causing all living things to lose the ability to breathe. Luckily Vishnu told Shesha to release Vayu, Shesha obeyed, and in doing so the mountain he was wrapped around instantly crumbled.

At the end of each Kalpa (time period allotted to the earth) the serpent destroys all creation.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

SMT-Ananta
"Origin: India. One of the kings of the Nagas. It is a giant serpent with a thousand heads, whose name means 'infinite.' It sleeps under the earth and will watch over the end of the world with Vishnu. Until the time comes, Ananta will protect Vishnu for eons in the sea of milk."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Ananta appears as the final round boss of the Golden Ark Casino's Ultimate Battle area and as support for Vishnu in some of his later appearances as an event boss. Players can obtain his plug-in by gathering a large amount of items dropped in the Champion Course which is accessed by being the top player within UB for the month. He is a triple fusion of Qing Long, Koumokuten, and Raja Naga.

Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit

Known as Shesha, he appears as a boss that has taken over the Metropolitan Government Office. He is the primary lieutenant and pet of Krishna, later turning out to be vital to the Divine Powers' plan to become the rulers of a new universe free of Law and Chaos; he fakes his death after his boss fight and later turns out to have replaced Flynn in order to manipulate the party into destroying Merkabah and Lucifer while Krishna attempts to brainwash the real one into "Kalki", his own Godslayer and avatar to transform into Vishnu. While he is initially a mindless animal, during the initial battle with him he develops sentience and a cruel personality that enjoys hurting the enemies of Krishna. After revealing himself, he devours Asahi to power his own transformation into a Cosmic Egg. Presumably, he is truly killed after the Egg is destroyed or retreats into hiding after Krishna's defeat.

Persona 3Edit

"A serpent with 1000 heads of Hindu myth. Ananta is Sanskrit for "infinite". After resting on him, Vishnu woke up and created the universe."
Persona 3 Compendium

Together with the Persona Vishnu, the two can perform a Fusion Spell, Infinity, which makes the whole party invincible for one round.

Devil Children Black/Red BookEdit

Ananta can be obtained by rank fusing Naga eight times.

DemiKids Light & DarkEdit

"A dragon said to swim the sea whenever the world approaches its final hour."
Demonary, DemiKids

Known as Armasnak, he can perform the combo Dragon Cross with Ares.

Digital Devil Saga: Avatar TunerEdit

Ananta blocks the way to the topmost levels of the Karma Temple once the party reaches an elevation of 21,832 ft. It relays a message left by Sera but then states the Embryon will be terminated if they refuse to obey.

Ananta gets 7 press turns a round and follows a few set turn patterns while fought. One of which uses the Nerve based Stun Wave and Dream Haze status ailments along with Sonic Wave to try to inflict Panic status. Another to use Dekunda if debuffed followed by 4 turns of Tarukaja. Ananta will typically focus on one person and use 5 turns of normal physical attacks, Power Charge, and then finish with another normal attack. Finally, there is also a pattern where Ananta will alternate between Mudo and Mudoon to try and kill the party for the whole round.

Devil Survivor 2Edit

"A serpent of Hindu lore that appears at the beginning and end of the world.
Vishnu rested on Ananta, who stands on the endless milk ocean. After Awakening, he began creating the world.
"
