Jack Frost has been a corporate mascot for Atlus as well as one of the most recognized demons in their Shin Megami Tensei for years now.

He is highly sought after by players, even though he is not exactly a high-level demon. However, he is quite useful during the mid-game mark, and the Ice and Light attack that he is able to wield comes in handy during a lot of encounters.

Shin Megami Tensei 5 Jack Frost guide

1) How to get Jack Frost in Shin Megami Tensei 5?

Like most other games in the MegaTen series, Jack Frost can be acquired by either Demon Negotiations or Fusion.

In Shin Megami Tensei 5, Jack Frost encounters are much more frequent in the East section of Shinagawa, and players will be able to directly recruit him to the party after a successful Demon Negotiation.

When it comes to fusing Jack Frost in the World of Shadows, players can go about it in a few different ways. Jack Frost can be obtained by fusing Legion with Kaya-no-Hime, Koppa Tengu, or Sudama. Legion is the key component here, and it’s advisable that players combine him with the demon that will benefit their party the most.

Which of the three players choose to fuze with Legion will determine Jack Frost's skills, and the ultimate aim should always be to make a well-rounded party.
