Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance daily demon vol. 14 – Fenrir

Posted on April 24, 2024 by in Switch, Videos

Another Daily Demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance has been released by Atlus. Today the focus is on Fenrir.

A demon of the Wilder race, Fenrir has appeared in several instalments in the Megami Tensei franchise in the past, and will be a new demon for the Vengeance re-release. Based on the wolf of the same name from Norse mythology, the Megami Tensei wiki gives us a little more detail regarding its lore:

Fenrir, also known as Fenris, Vánagandr or Fenrisulfr, is a giant wolf appearing in Norse mythology and one of three children of Loki and Angrboda. His mouth can open so large that it can envelop the heavens and the earth.

At birth, Fenrir had no particular powers at all and was not placed under the watch of the Aesir. But as time passed, his power grew. Fearing Fenrir’s strength and believing that only evil could be expected of him, the gods planned to bind Fenrir. At last, the gods attempted to bind Fenrir with a chain called Loedingr, but Fenrir easily bit through the chain. The gods then tried again with Dromi, twice as strong as Loedingr, but again Fenrir easily broke it. Finally, the gods asked the dwarves to forge a third chain, Gleipnir, and with this they succeeded in binding Fenrir.

He was prophesied to kill Odin during Ragnarok, so Odin bound Fenrir to his throne. When Ragnarok begins, he will be released, the ground will open and Fenrir will break free from Gleipnir and and then kill Odin in revenge for his imprisonment.
