Vetala (ヴェータラ, Vētara)? is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Megami Tensei IIEdit

A man in Korakuen boasts about his pet Vetala and challenges the hero. After its defeat, the hero obtains the Earth Talisman.

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

"Origin: India. A malevolent spirit of Hindu lore. They posses corpses and control them. They are also vampires or leaders of ghosts. There are spells to utilize them to manipulate the dead."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

Vetala is incorrectly named Rakshasa in the English version.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

"A type of Preta appearing in Hindu tradition. They are the most dangerous of all Preta. They possess the dead bodies of humans and are constantly plotting their return to the realm of the living. Their eyes glow with a dull light.
Legends say that the Vetala wield secret arts and can raise the dead by chanting mantras. Vetala are considered the greatest of all evil spirits, and also a form of vampire. They suck the blood of their victims and bend them to their will, even controlling their movement like puppets.
In Buddhist tradition, they are called Kondara or Metara.
"
Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE Compendium

Vetala can be contracted in Shinagawa's Catacombs of the Templar Knight during the new moon phase. They appear in Ikebukuro as one of the demons contracted by punks and as one of the two final bosses of the Old Tokyo Metro instance.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"A type of Preta in Hindu and Buddhist lore. Classified as "powerful ghosts," they have varying shapes and forms. They can control the dead and eat humans."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Compendium

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

Vetala acts as a guard of Shinjuku's entrance in the world of Infernal Tokyo, requiring payment to let people pass. When attempting to get the usual payment from Akira, he learns from Walter that he is trying to attack Shinjuku's leader and decides to punish his Neurishers, stating that he is next. He is scared by how strong the Samurai are as they defeat him and complains about how it isn't fair before dying.

Persona 3Edit

One of Elizabeth's requests is to create a Vetala that has inherited the spell Maragi. This can be a difficult task as Vetala is stubborn about inheriting elemental magic. Fusing Pyro Jack with Chimera can result in a Vetala with the skill Maragi.

Persona 4Edit

A persona of the Devil Arcana, Vetala specializes in inflicting ailments upon enemies. Vetala can be found in Shuffle Time in both Steamy Bathhouse and Marukyu Striptease.
