Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance daily demon vol. 10 – Pale Rider

Posted on April 20, 2024 by in Switch, Videos

Atlus are back with another Daily Demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance to give us a look at one of the new demons added to the enhanced re-release. This time, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Pale Rider, takes the spotlight.

A Fiend race Demon, Pale Rider has appeared in almost every major instalment in both the Megami Tensei and Persona series. It previously appeared as part of the Return of the True Demon DLC pack, and in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance this DLC will come as part of the package, so players will be able to add it to their party once again once they have defeated it in battle and fused it.

The Megami Tensei Wiki has this to say about Pale Rider’s origins:

The Pale Rider, or Pale Horseman, is the fourth and final Horseman of the Apocalypse, according to Christian scripture. The rider traditionally represents death and bears a scythe of death. Despite typically being portrayed carrying a scythe as his weapon (much like the Grim Reaper), in the Book of Revelation, he is described as bringing Hades (Hell) wherever he rides as his symbol. His color being pale, as opposed to an actual color, could be reflecting the sickly appearance of a corpse (though old translations could be interpreted as the rider being pale green and yellowish green.)

Unlike the other three Horsemen, Death has also been specifically mentioned in texts surrounding the Day of Judgement where God himself takes both Hades and Death, alongside the devil and all his followers and places them in the Lake of Fire for all of eternity.
