The latest demon trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V has arrived with a look at Ouyamatsumi. This creature has been in select titles like Shin Megami Tensei II and the Persona Q games.

Here’s some background information on Ouyamatsumi, courtesy of the Megami Tensei Wiki:

Ouyamatsumi, also known as Ohoyamatsumi, is a strong Kunitsukami of the Shinto religion, being the god of Mount Fuji. He creates the ice and the snow at the tip tops of the mountains and he is the leader of elevation. He is the grandfather of Kushinada-Hime, Susano-o’s wife.

He has many different looks, one of which is a man sitting on a golden chair in the top of a mountain. He rocks it back and forth gently to create the flecks of snow that slowly fall down. He wears a long golden threaded men’s kimono. Another depiction of him, is a rock creature of large proportions that thumps the grounds of the mountain, creating stormy weathers. He is kind-natured over humans and his personality is full of blessed fortune.

Oyamatsumi, a great mountain named after him found in the Zocho Heights, is said to be his earthly embodiment. This mountain has been blessed for many centuries, especially during the Heian era when travelers would pray and bow down before the mountain to wish them good luck and fortune on their foreboding journey.

He also controls the fields for harvest, blessing humans with good rice crops and creating softer tides to stop tsunamis from approaching. Although he had a great influence, his accomplishments have been forgotten in the old text he was written in. He has been a great blessing for people of Japan in his texts, as he created the lush beauty of the mountains and brought them good luck.
