Byakko as seen in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Byakko (ビャッコ?), also known as Bai Hu (白虎) the White Tiger in China, is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

The White Tiger is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese Constellation (Si Xiang) along with Azure Dragon, Vermillion Bird and Black Tortoise. It represents the West, the autumn season and the element of Metal (Wind in the Japanese system). During the Han Dynasty, people believed the tiger to be the king of all beasts. Legend had it that when a tiger reached 500 years old, its tail would turn white. In this way, the white tiger became a mythological creature. It was said that the white tiger would only appear when the emperor ruled with absolute virtue, or if there was peace throughout the world. Because the color white of the Chinese five elements also represents the west, the white tiger thus became a mythological guardian of the west.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Byakko was the third of the four beasts to be implemented within IMAGINE. He acts as one of the final bosses of Shinagawa's gold-level Catacomb of the Templar Knights. He is a special triple fusion of Senri, Typhon, and Scathach.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"One of the Ssu-Ling, celestial creatures of Chinese myth. It represents the direction west, the season of autumn, and the element metal."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Compendium

Persona 2: Innocent SinEdit

Unlike the other Personas of the Hermit Arcana, Byakko and Genbu have Great Affinity with everyone.

Persona 3Edit

Byakko appears as the highest level Temperance Persona. He can only be summoned after completing the Foreign Exchange Student Social Link.

FESEdit

Byakko is no longer the ultimate Persona of the Temperance Arcana and thus can be summoned without maxing out the Social Link.

DemiKids Light & DarkEdit

"A resurrected tiger-demon with unknown powers that have yet to be awakened."
Demonary, DemiKids
"A tiger-demon that guards against invasion from the west."
Demonary, DemiKids

Known as Byako, he can perform the combo War Breath with Garuda and Thunderblast with Atropos. Byakozom can be created through Relic Fusion using the Huge, Mirror, Wafer, the Air, Heavy, Huge, or the Pulse, Tusk, Mirror combo.

Digital Devil Saga: Avatar TunerEdit

Known as Baihu. After defeating Ananta in the final floors of the Karma Temple, the Embryon can come down from the tower and find out four powerful demons have taken over several sectors of the Junkyard. Baihu appears in Manipura. The Asura Baihu is a man who follows the orders of Huang Long. The battle is quite simple as long as Baihu is not hit by Force spells, either the Embryon or his own, as they will greatly heal him.

Like the other three, Baihu's battle is fought in three stages. He will start out using weak Physical attacks and mid-tier Force attacks. During the second phase, he will switch to Skull Cleave as his physical and will start using Shock Wave. Finally, during the third phase he will switch to Executioner and -dyne Force spells. In this phase he will also start using patterned turns which go Tarukaja/Power Charge/Executioner and Makakaja/Mind Charge/Mazandyne and occassionally use Rage with random attacks. Using Void Phys or Repel Phys will cut down the danger of the Physical round immensely and make Baihu lose turns.

Devil Survivor 2Edit

"One of the Ssu-Ling, celestial creatures in Chinese lore.
It represents the direction west, the season of autumn, and the element of metal.
"

The AnimationEdit

Byakko is Hibiki's first demon in Devil Survivor 2 The Animation, and currently the main demon that he uses besides Suzaku. He uses Byakko to defeat Dubhe alone and Merak at the unintended expense of mass casualty of other JP's summoners. Like in the original game, Byakko relies mainly on Elec and Phys-based attacks to attack demons and Septentrione. It also seems to be much more powerful than other summoned demons, being able to endure many heavy blows and falls in addition to defeating many common demons in one strike.

TriviaEdit

  • Although its profile in most official English localizations insists that it came from the four benevolent animals (Ssu-Ling), this is fundamentally wrong as there is no tiger included in this concept.
