Occult Icon P1 | Prayer Icon IS Prayer (天啓, tenkei)? is a skill type in the series, consisting of positive status effects, such as buffs. They cannot miss. Their dark counterparts are the Mind Skills, which inflict debuffs and status ailments.

In Megami Ibunroku Persona, it is a subtype of Light Skills.

General spellEdit

Stat ModifiersEdit

In the Shin Megami Tensei main series, Prayer spells usually target the whole party, unlike the Persona (with the exception of Megami Ibunroku Persona) series where they usually have both single-target and all-target versions, as displayed below. They use the classic Maha/Ma prefix to denote all-target version.

In the original version of Shin Megami Tensei, each -kaja effect can stack up to 8 times and 4 times for -nda effect. This was changed to 4 times for both -kaja and -nda effects in most subsequent installments. Few games like Shin Megami Tensei IV and Digital Devil Saga 2 even cap the buff/debuff limit at 3 times. In Megami Ibunroku Persona, all -kaja and -kunda spells can stack without a limit. In the other Persona games, -kaja and -kunda spells cannot be stacked, and their effect ends after three turns.

The basic skills which affect one statistic by one level use two sets of roots to form the skill names systemically:

First root
Taru- Physical power related.
If Maka- type is not available, it affects magical power as well.
Maka- Magical power related including healing.
Raku- Physical defense related.
If Sama- type is not available, it affects magical defense as well.
Sama- Magical defense related without affecting healing.
Suku- Agility (hit-rate/evasion/action order/escape chance) related.
De- Negation related.
Last root
-kaja Boosting statistic.
-nda Lowering statistic.

  • The statistic modifier skills introduced in this article except for Makakaja and Power Charge are notably absent from the Majin Tensei series and Devil Survivor series. In the Devil Survivor series these are replaced by auto skills which only last for the duration of the short skirmish.
