In Shin Megami Tensei 5 Vengeance, you have to fusion different demons together to unlock a new one.

Kikuri-Hime is a great support demon and goes very well with the Oni.

As mentioned before, Oni in Shin Megami 5 Vengeance is a physical attacker. Most of its skills are damaging physical attacks. However, it does have some utility skills in the form of Taunt and some of its physical skills can also bestow debuffs on the target.

Here are all the skills that Oni can learn:

  • Crusher Onslaught: Low-accuracy physical attack on all enemies.
  • Heavy Blow: Damaging physical attack on one target. More effective when landing a crit.
