|Japanese Name||本多 保行|
|First Appearance||Devil Survivor|
Yasuyuki Honda is a non-playable character in Devil Survivor.
Honda is an honest man who works for a living to raise his son. However, the events go downhill for him after his son needs an important surgery operation. His sanity is put into test as he endures the events of the lockdown. At the end of most routes, Honda goes insane with the demon's power.
Honda is an office worker turned demon tamer who is desperately trying to escape the Tokyo Lockdown so he can be by his son's side during his operation. He regularly teams up with Kaido during battles. On Day 3, it is revealed that he was sent to collect a COMP for higher-ups that wish to harness the demons' power for shady purposes.
Early Bad Ending
On Day 6, Honda will attempt to go through a lightly-guarded part of the lockdown near the Ueno Station. If he succeeds, the result will be the early bad ending.
In Desperate Escape's Route, after the Protagonist's group defeats the angels and escapes, Honda meets up with the group to reveal that his son didn't live long enough, and that he has come to understand that the government and humanity as a whole are worthless. He starts to use the demons to destroy everything.
Honda does not appear in the other 7th day routes.
Devil Survivor Overclocked
Honda has an expanded role in each of the new 8th day routes.
Honda's team kills all the SDF soldiers, enabling his escape. They later meet up with him. Though grieving at the death of his son, he still considers the group as heroes for getting him past the lockdown and allowing the demons to run rampant everywhere. This indirectly causes the party be branded terrorists by the SDF.
While insane, Honda mistakenly believes that he can revive his son by finding and using the strongest demon's power. During the final battle against Belberith, he arrives atop the Hills builder, and the violent god agrees to become Honda's patron now that he has no need for the Shomonkai Founder. During the fight, Belberith summons Baphomet to keep him alive until the demon is taken down. Honda requests more power from Belberith, who promises to rejoin him with his son and his wife in hell by killing him brutally, thus ending Honda's life.
The King's Decision
Honda is still trapped inside the lockdown, not knowing anything about his son. He is found by the group, and then Naoya suggests that he has potential to convince the people to aid them/stay away from them. He is last seen convincing the people from either aid them in their cause or reconsider from getting in their way.
Later, Loki tricks Honda, telling him about his son's death and making him believe that he is capable of bringing back the dead just to get him to help battling the party. After Loki's defeat, Honda rages hopeless and powerless.
Hero Vs. God
Honda desperately tries to get a COMP outside the lockdown despite the orders from the angels so that the company he's working for can pay for his son's surgery. His efforts to save his son flatter Susano-o, who helps him to overcome the rule of the angels and the Messiah. He briefly receives Okuninushi's blessing to defeat the Messiah, but his group gets defeated.
Later, he regretfully informs the group of his son's passing, but he helps them to understand the story between Cain and Abel more with some of his opinions regarding the incident. After this, he asks to be left alone.
2nd Day, Eikokuji
Honda shows up with Kaido and cooperate with the protagonist's party in defeating the demons there.
3rd Day, Shibuya Park
Honda and Kaido are encountered here, with Kaido challenging the protagonist's party to see who can defeat more demons.
4th Day, Suidobashi
Kaido and Honda are found attacking civilians here and must be defeated.
6th Day, Ueno
Honda is found here attempting to escape from the lockdown. The battle proceeds to where Honda can be attacked and must be defeated - if he escapes, the Early Bad Ending will occur.
- Honda's battle sprite shows him in a martial arts stance, suggesting that he may have a martial arts background.
- Interacting with Honda during location events is for the most part optional, since he does not contribute to any of the endings.
- In Overclocked, through Yuzu's Route, Honda is the only demon tamer of the game to possess the auto-skill "Pierce +"
- Honda has the demon Hariti on his combat team which presents some irony. In Buddhist lore, Hariti was originally a demon who slew human children in her desperation to feed her hundreds of children while Honda's character, motivations and grief revolve around the death of his own son.
