MithraSMT3

Mithra's latest design, originating from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

"The sin of man is forgetting the gods and losing harmony with the land and rivers! Humans are not fit to receive the blessing of the gods!"
—Mithras, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Mithra (ミスラ, Misura)? also known as Mitra (ミトラ, Mitora)? is a demon in the series. Not to be confused with Mithras of Roman origin. This article focuses on the entities from Persian and Vedic scriptures.

HistoryEdit

In Zoroastrian mythology, Mithra was a deity of contracts who was the protector of truth and the enemy of error. He was created by the supreme deity Ahura Mazda as the greatest of all Yazatas and an important aid in the destruction of the demonic forces led by Angra Mainyu (or known as Ahriman) in later Persian sources. He was one of the three Yazatas alongside Rashnu and Sraosha who judged the souls of the dead.

In Vedic mythology, Mitra is a god of honesty, friendship, meetings and contracts despite his role as an asura (although he is sometimes addressed as a deva). In this way he was often paired with the asura Varuna where they were twinned as Mitra-Varuna. Together they were the gods of the oath and the most important Asura in the Vedic pantheon. Mitra was also another name for Surya.

AppearancesEdit

DesignEdit

His artwork since Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne seems to resemble the lion-headed figure found in temples of Mithras in the former Roman Empire, often identified as god of the Mithraic cult named Arimanius. Referencing an image of a newer entity for the relatively older god is probably due to the lack of any imagery from the Zoroastrian records. Also in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, Mithra serves under the Assembly of Nihilo, whose mastermind turns into Ahriman.

Some identify the figure as Zurvan, a primordial divinity of time and destiny, from an extinct branch of Zoroastrianism named for the deity, while others identify it as the demiurge, Yaldabaoth. What is certain is that the lion-headed deity is associated with time and seasonal change.

While Mithra's official art portrays him with human feet, his 3D model has three-toed bird-like feet instead which is similar to Pazuzu who shares the same base 3D model. This remained constant throughout all of the PS2 games in which he appears.

His design as Mitra Bosastsu draws inspiration from both his and Mithras origin, having bull traits that stem from Mithras, angelic wings and gold/white to his angelic Yazata origins, and a Bodhisattva due to a believed Vedic origin in Mitra and Miroku/Maitreyas name.

ProfileEdit

Megami Tensei IIEdit

Mitra is an extra boss found in the Northwest Tower of the Forest of Confusion. Upon defeat, he drops Lucifer's Armor, which can only be equipped it if the hero has 30+ Vitality and 25+ Intellect (including equipment bonuses).

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

He is one of bosses in the Diet Building, representing the power of the Assembly of Nihilo. He is confronted in the Senate Chamber. After his defeat, he can be fused as a regular demon, and is the only one to learn the unique skill Death Pact, a conversation skill with a high recruitment rate and which has the power to occasionally inflict the Stone ailment on demons who refuse to join.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Mithra can only be obtained through trifusion, but does not require a plug-in. He appears as the boss of the advanced level of Hongou field and as a mob within the Second Home instance.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"A sun deity of Zoroastrian lore. He is the son of the god of light, Ahura Mazda. He is the sunlight that appears before dawn and has the power to expel darkness. He also has a fearful war god side to him; those who opposed him would have their bones crushed."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Compendium (Fallen Mithras)

In Fornax, "Mitra" (in the form of man born from a rock) is one of the four demons to swear vengeance upon the protagonist for defeating him in Sector Bootes, shedding his original shape and revealing himself as the lion-headed Mithras, though despite the power boost he is still defeated. Both of his shapes can be fused through the Demonica with Special Fusion.

Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit

Mitra-Buddha is the form taken by Maitreya to reclaim his powers as a Buddha in the Cosmic Egg, after being reincarnated with Inanna's power. Having power over linking souls to the earth, Mitra-Buddha creates a seal that isolates the souls within the Cosmic Egg, preventing Dagda from ever being able to revive them unless it is undone. At the same time, Dagda would be unable to revive Nanashi while he is in the Cosmic Egg, so a death in the level is an instant game over.

Prior to confrontation, Mitra-Buddha reveals that the Flynn the cast knows is the reincarnation of the same individual who sacrificed himself to Masakado to form the Firmament, and that Nanashi is the reincarnation of Aquila.

Majin Tensei II: Spiral NemesisEdit

Mitra is a boss in Paranoia's Gee on the Dark-Law/Chaos routes.

Persona 3Edit

Pairing Mithra up with Metatron will allow use of the Fusion spell "Last Judge", which obliterates enemies with a gavel made up of Almighty powers.

Devil Survivor 2Edit

In Devil Survivor 2, Mithra is a Unique demon that doesn't require a particular fusion combination to create. Instead, the player has to achieve a Fate level of 3 with Yamato Hotsuin before it is available. Once this has been achieved, it is unlocked for fusion on all subsequent runs as long as the player imports his/her save.

BattleEdit

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

When fought as a boss, whether it be as Mitra or Mithras, he will abuse Waking Dream which has a chance percentage to cause Strain status on the opposing party. After a few turns have elapsed from that action, he will use Light of Order, an attack with a 100% chance of instant kill. Mitra/Mithras will mix in a few physical attacks to separate the frequency of his unique skills but he will otherwise follow a consistent attack pattern.
