Moloch (モーロック?, or モロク?), or Chemosh (ケモシ?), is a demon in the series.


Moloch refers to either a god or a particular kind of sacrifice associated with fire. He appears, and is mentioned, in the Old Testament as a god that Moses forbade the Israelites to worship.



Megami Tensei IIEdit

Moloch rules over the Lands of Rage. He drops the Orb of Doubt, allowing the hero to travel to the Forest of Confusion.

Shin Megami Tensei IIEdit

Moloch is mentioned in Shin Megami Tensei II and his tail drills through Tokyo Millennium. It can be seen at the abyss, as a huge golden statue, but it is impossible to speak to him.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Moloch can only be acquired through a triple fusion of Coatlicue, Artemis, and Orobas. He appears as a miniboss in Ikebukuro's Zoushigiya Cemetary and as a mob within Ueno's Mirage instance.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"A Canaanite god of fire. It is said that a bronze statue of a man with a bull's head was placed at the altar. The statue's hollow insides were heated and the sacrificial children were thrown in. His name is mentioned in the Bible as the god of an atrocious sect."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Compendium

In Strange Journey, Moloch is the true form of Morax, encountered in Sector Fornax, explaining why Morax is of the Tyrant race rather than Fallen. Moloch appears as a boss and is available through Special fusion after defeating him, using Morax and Ose as ingredients in the fusion.

Moloch is the boss of chapter 16.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil SummonerEdit

Moloch is the name of a band whose reunion concert the protagonist buy tickets to early on in the game.
