Orcus

Orcus' redesign in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.

"I will grab your departing spirit and crush it... Along with your illusions of eternal life!"
—Orcus, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Orcus (オルクス?) is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Orcus was a god of the underworld, punisher of broken oaths in Roman mythology. He was more equivalent to the Roman Pluto than to the Greek Hades. He was portrayed in paintings in Etruscan tombs as a hairy, bearded giant. Orcus is also said to have inspired orcs, a race of pig-like men who frequently appear in modern fantasy. This is apparent in the series as Orcus appears as a grotesque pig-headed creature.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

SMT-OrcusSpr
"Origin: Italy. A malevolent Roman god. He is one of the gods of the underworld, and has a pig's head and bat wings. He's daring but violent, and will massacre enemy troops in order to eat them. He sometimes appears as a giant dragon with fangs of iron."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

See: Horkos

Devil Survivor 2Edit

"A god of death originating in Greco-Roman lore.
In those days, he was depicted as a demon with the head of a pig, most likely because sacrifices to him commonly used pigs.
"
Devil Survivor 2

Orcus appears in Fumi Kanno's team when she is an enemy on Tuesday.

In the Animation, Orcus is Joe's main demon.

BattleEdit

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"I will not stop until I have sipped on a chalice of your blood!"
—Orcus before engaging the player

Since Orcus is the same person as Horkos in this canon, their battles are also similar. Orcus uses the same attack pattern and has the same weaknesses, but has more resistances. Orcus retains all of Horkos' unique moveset but some moves now have upgrades. Chomp is now changed to Taking a Bite but still retains it's properties of being a Life Drain-esque attack. Grocery Run still summons a single Katakirauwa although now each Katakirauwa summoned is at level 46.

TriviaEdit

  • Orcus typically has a "pig" design, but this was given to Horkos, Orcus' Grecian counterpart, due to plot related reasons in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. As a result, Orcus exhibits a new redesign in this game but in all other games, Orcus retains some resemblance of a pig in one form or another.
