Oni

Oni's design from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

"There are things you can only learn about a person in combat. But even if you understand each other... in the end, only one can remain. Now, show me what kind of man you are."
—Oni, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Oni (オニ?) is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

"An evil monster of Japanese lore known for its hideous appearance and brute strength. They loot and plunder villages, massacring the townspeople with their iron clubs."
—Compendium Info

Oni (鬼) are creatures from Japanese folklore, variously translated as demons, devils, ogres or trolls. They are popular characters in Japanese art, literature and theatre. Oni are known for attacking villages and plundering food, riches, and women.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

They are often henchmen or grunts yet have speaking roles, albeit minor ones.

Shin Megami Tensei: if.. Hazama's ChapterEdit

Oni is fought in a room where the player finds a Magic Box which gives the player an item needed to fight Yaksa.

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

"A common demon in Japanese mythology. A powerful red creature with a horn on its head that attacks villages with its iron club and plunders food, riches and women."
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Compendium

Oni are the main force of the Mantra Army, as several are seen populating both Ikebukuro and the Mantra Headquarters.

Aside from the regular Oni, there were also four Oni with special powers, Ongyo-Ki, Fuu-Ki, Sui-Ki and Kin-Ki, who were once the Mantra's elite, before somehow falling out with the Army's Commander, Thor. They were cast out of the Mantra Army and were left to become bandits in the tunnels leading to Asakusa.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

"Monstrous creatures of Japanese mythology. Some of them, such as Shuten-doji, are well-known throughout Japan, and it is common for "-doji" to be added to the names of famous Oni. Their entire bodies are built as tough as iron, they have horns on their heads and sharp fangs protrude from their mouths. Their thick, sharp claws can easily tear through tempered steel. They wear lionclothes of tiger skin and carry metal clubs studded with spikes. The number of horns and the color of their skin varies from Oni to Oni.
The appearance of the Oni was established during the Heian period (794-1185). Because the so-called Oni Gate faces northeast, between the directions of the ox (NNE) and the tiger (ENE), the Oni was conceived as having the horns of a ox and the fangs and claws of a tiger. The animals who protected the Japanese folk hero Momotaro from the Oni were derived from the opposing directions: the monkey (WSW), the cock (W), and the dog (WNW).
The prison guards of Hell who command the Oni are known as Mezuki and Gozuki.
"
Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE Compendium

Oni can be contracted in Ueno and Ikebukuro during the in-game daytime hours. It appears as the final boss of Act 7 following a player's DB License test. He appears as an enemy in Ikebukuro as a demon contracted by punks, as a summon by the four oni bosses in Shinjuku, one of the invading forces in Shinagawa during the weekend invasion periods, and the boss of the Suginami camp hacked chip instance. An oni non-playable character plays a central role in some limited events, such as Setsubun-themed events, summer beach events, and a Valentine's event where he showed some interest in Moh Shuuvu.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"An evil monster of Japanese lore known for its hideous visage and brute strength. They plunder and loot villages, massacring the townspeople with their iron clubs. They have a horn on their heads, red skin, and razor-sharp teeth."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Compendium

Oni appear as regular enemies in the basements of Sector Antlia. Several special Oni serve as Morax's special elite troopers. Another Oni appears as part of an EX Mission, Fool Eat Meat!, having indeed eaten Cerberus' special dinner.

Shin Megami Tensei IV DEMONIC GENEEdit

Oni alongside Fuu-Ki is one of the first demons to attack Walter when he arrives in Tokyo. The Black Samurai is able to defeat both before they could finish Walter and a Casualry.

Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King AbaddonEdit

"An evil monster of Japanese lore known for its hideous appearance and brute strength. They loot and plunder villages, and massacre the townspeople with their iron clubs."
Gouma-Den Devil Chart

Persona 4Edit

Oni is needed to perform a cross fusion along with Fuu-Ki, Sui-Ki and Kin-Ki, in order to create the ultimate persona of the Hermit arcana, Ongyo-Ki.

DemiKids Light & DarkEdit

"Though fearsome to behold, this powerful demon is actually very kind and sensitive."
Demonary, DemiKids

Known as Ogre.
