"Insolent fool!!!! Learn your weakness through my illusions!"
—Ongyo-ki, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne
Ongyo-ki (オンギョウキ, Ongyōki)? is a demon in the series.
An oni that was controlled by Fujiwara no Chikata. Ongyo-ki suppressed its aura to prevent enemies from sensing him, allowing him to surprise enemies when he attacked. It has been allegedly said that this is the origin of ninjitsu.
"One of the four oni Chikata Fujiwara was said to have controlled during the Heian period of Japan. He had the power to disappear and make images of himself, making people believe this is the origin of ninjitsu."
—Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne compendium
Ongyo-Ki is the leader of the four Oni that were part of the Mantra demons' elite force. But they made a mistake which angered Thor and they were forever banished from Ikebukuro. The once elite Oni group became mere petty thieves who mugged anyone going through their scattered hideouts around the Ikebukuro Tunnel.
Ongyo-Ki's hideout is within the central area of the Ikebukuro Tunnel close to the ladder that leads to the station near Asakusa. However, he will not appear until his 3 subordinates have been defeated. If the Demi-fiend manages to meet up with him, Ongyo-Ki will ask if he is the one who murdered the former's comrades. Either option results in Ongyo-Ki challenging him to a duel.
Ongyo-Ki has a special ability to replicate himself. If any of the replicas are hit, he will retaliate with a powerful attack. The only way to see through the illusions is to battle him during a Full Kagutsuchi phase. With the light of Kagutsuchi reaching even in the darkest recesses of the tunnel, the real Ongyo-Ki's shadow can be seen on the surface, negating his tricks and making him vulnerable.
Ongyo-ki can be summoned as a field boss on Shinjuku field after obtaining three different lacquers from the other oni bosses. He has a rare chance of dropping a shadow fragment that can be turned in to the White-Haired Young Man NPC in front of Old Ichigaya Camp's B108 boss room along with an Oni that knows all four null element skills. By doing this, players are able to obtain the ability to fuse Ongyo-Ki. By obtaining multiple fragments, players can perform a synthesis recipe to create a special set of equipment that allows them to use a skill that erases their presence for a short period during the in-game night.
Ongyo-Ki can teach Nanashi the Tetanus Cut, Dark Sword, Mist Rush and Death's Door skills through its Demon Whisper. It benefits from learning Physical attack and ailment skills.
