The Seven Deadly Sins are a recurring plot device in the series.



Traditionally, the seven deadly sins are: Lust (Latin: Luxuria), Greed (Avaritia), Envy (Invidia), Wrath (Ira), Sloth (Tristitia/Acedia), Pride (Superbia) and Gluttony (Gula). In some older account, two more sins are included: Acedia (Cavum) and Vanity (Irritum) but they are considered too similar to Sloth and Pride respectively and thus combined by Pope Gregory I.

In Binsfeld's classification of demons, each sin is paired with certain high-ranking demon:


Shin Megami Tensei: if...Edit

When Tamaki Uchida heads with her companion into the Expanse, she must navigate selected regions themed around the seven deadly sins on her quest to stop Ideo Hazama's vengeful rampage.

Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit

The Tokugawa Mandala is powered by Aether infinitely siphoned from the Expanse embodied by five of the sins in a different Jar. The Four Heavenly Kings and Marici guard these Jars. Only the most purest or well trained of souls can endure them, leaving Toki as the only one capable of sealing each jar. The sins that are used for the Mandala are:

  • Wrath
  • Sloth
  • Gluttony
  • Lust
  • Pride

Megami Ibunroku PersonaEdit

Enemies of the Karma race are themed after six of the seven deadly sins (with Gluttony being omitted). The Karma race demons appear as common enemies in the Alaya Cavern. Stronger boss versions of them also appear at the end of the Mikage Ruins.

Persona 5Edit

Each Palace and its occupant Shadow Self represents one of the sins. These sins are stolen as treasure from the individual in order to make them atone for their crimes, viewing death as an easy way out for the criminal in question. Upon defeat a main treasure that embodies their sin is obtained


  • Unlike the other antagonists in Persona 5 Goro Akechi does not have his own palace, drop a treasure, and is instead fought with midboss music in Shidou Palace.
  • Most of the demons in Persona 5 are incorrectly assigned to sins in traditional demonology; Azazel is not the demon of any sin and Belphegor is the demon of Sloth, Bael (or Beelzebub) and Mammon are switched, and the demon of Wrath is Amon. In Gnostic thought, assigning Yaldabaoth to Pride is accurate, as it is said that Yaldabaoth's belief in his own divinity is the source of all suffering caused by the physical world.
