Hassohappa (八相発破) is a recurring physical skill in the games. It's usually a very high level skill that damages all enemies for huge quantities of damage.
Hassohappa is one of the sword skills mastered within the Kashima Shinden Jikishinkage-ryū, a traditional school of the Japanese martial art of swordsmanship, kenjutsu. Hassohappa, literally translated as "eight-directions explosive-blast", is one of the traditional basic moves.
Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit
|Hassohappa||35% HP||Physical damage relative to user's current HP to all enemies. High chance of critical. (Demons with weapons only)|
|15% HP||The more full the HP of the user is, the more damage this attack does. Hits all enemies.|
- Due to the nature of the Inheritance system in Devil Survivor everything can learn Hassohappa, even if they would not have any way to utilize the skill, like in the case of Legion.
- In most of the games it appears in there are not multiple physical elements and Hassohappa is listed as just a simple physical. However in Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE, it is one of the two almighty affinity spin skills that is not a signature skill.
