Kodama Official Artwork.

Kodama (コダマ, Kodama)? is a demon in the series.


A Kodama (木魅) is a spirit from Japanese folklore, which is believed to live in certain trees. Cutting down a tree which houses a kodama is thought to bring misfortune, and such trees are often marked with shimenawa rope.



Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

"In Japanese mythology, they are the spirits of plants. They are born from trees that live 100 years."
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Demonic Compendium

Kodama can be recruited or fused. They are commonly found in Ginza.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

"A general name for spirits that inhabit trees. The name is also sometimes used to refer to the trees they live in. The word "kodama" can also mean 'echo' in Japanese, stemming from the belief that mountain echoes are created by these tree spirits. Attempting to cut down a tree inhabited by a kodama is said to bring a curse. "
Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE Compendium

Kodama are a regular spawn on Suginami and Nakano fields, including a larger field boss version that appears in multiple locations in Suginami. Early quests and story-line acts regularly feature them. Kodama also appear as one of the two unique bazaar tending demons in Arcadia.

  • "Scout" performed by Kodama is counter-productive unless it is transferred to an adult demon because Kodama is given the "adolescent/child" traits in conversation.
