"Man, what're you going on about? I've been making my own way on muscle alone since I was born. Talk is cheap. So c'mon, man, let's get to comparin' our strength! Both of my arms might be gone, but I ain't sunk so low that I'd let a human get the best of me!"
—Takeminakata, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Take-Minakata (タケミナカタ, Takeminakata) is a recurring demon in the series.


Take-Minakata-no-kami (kanji: 建御名方神), is one of the sons of Okuninushi. When the Amatsu decided to increase their influence on the earth, they sent Take-Mikazuchi to conquer Take-Minakata. They had the first sumo match which Take-Mikazuchi won. Take-Minakata then had his arms cut and fled to Suwa, where he married a Suwa goddess, Yasakatome, and became the guardian god. The local legend believed the cracking phenomenon on the icy Lake Suwa in every winter to be the "Passage of God" (御神渡り, Omiwatari, scientifically the result of pressure ridge). Take-Minakata leaves his temple via the frozen lake to the opposite bank to meet the goddess.



Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Take-Minakata can be encountered within Ichigaya's Kagurazaka Zhu Que gold-level instance.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"In Japanese lore, he fought Take-Mikazuchi for control of Japan and lost. He is revered as the god of hunting."
—Strange Journey Compendium

Takeminakata begins appearing once the protagonist gains the Enemy Search A app, which allows them to detect hidden enemies. Takeminakata can be found throughout Sector Antlia and Sector Bootes and at that point in the game can be a tangible threat, both for his level and heavy Physical attacks. He will generally target the protagonist and if faced during a New Moon, will continually use Zan-Ei for boosted damage.
