Posted on October 28, 2021 by in Switch, Videos

The latest daily demon has been revealed by Atlus. The latest showcased demon is the Tyrant race demon Amon, check out the overview video below along with some additional details.

Here is some of the history behind Amon from the Megami Tensei wiki:

Amon (also spelled as Aamon or Nahum, along with many other variations) is a Great Marquis of Hell and the seventh of the 72 Goetic demons who governs forty infernal legions. He is also one of the four personal assistants of Astaroth.

He appears as a wolf with a snake’s tail who can breathe fire, or as a man with dog’s teeth who is situated inside of a raven, or as a raven-headed man. Collin de Plancy took the artistic liberty of compressing Amon’s two forms into one with the head of a dog-teethed raven, the body of a wolf, and a snake tail in place of its back legs. At the command of a mage, Amon may take the shape of man with a raven’s head, having teeth of a canine. He tells of all things past and future. According to the Grand Grimoire, he is a direct subordinate of Satanachia.

He procures love and reconciles controversies between friends and foes. Some demonologists have associated his name with the Egyptian god Amun or with the god Ba‘al Hammon of Carthage.

As Amaymon, also known as Amoymon or Amaimon, he is said to be a Prince of Hell who represents the sin of Wrath and King of either the West or East. Asmoday and sometimes Gaap are said to be his servants. A silver ring is required to be worn on the middle finger when summoning him, as his deadly breath will kill the summoner otherwise.

Amon initially made its debut in Megami Tensei II as a member of the Kishin race, but will be returning as a demon of the Tyrant race for Shin Megami Tensei V.

Shin Megami Tensei V arrives on Switch on November 12. Previous daily demon videos and other coverage for the game can be found here.
