Demi-Fiend Doing a Freikugel for Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne.gif

Freikugel 至高の魔弾 (Shikounomadan Supreme Magic Bullet?) is a Skill in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse.


Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

The Demi-fiend charges magical power in front of his face, before launching deadly beams from his eyes at a single enemy. It has the highest offensive power Demi-fiend can learn, and exerts unreasonable power when applying auxiliary magic. Because it is an Almighty-based physical skill, it is effective against all enemies and can be amplified by Focus.

=Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse

As before, Freikugel is exclusive to the Demi-fiend in the quest "Messiahs in the Diamond Realm." It deals heavy Almighty damage to a single target, and is complemented further by the Demi-fiend's passive skills Pierce and Almighty Pleroma.



Made famous by the German opera Der Freischütz (The Freeshooter), the Freikugeln (singular Freikugel) were a set of magic bullets which never miss the shooter's target thanks to a deal with the devil. However, the devil would choose the final bullet's target.


After Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, subsequent installments which introduce the same skill (至高の魔弾) which deals Gun-type (instead of Almighty-type) damage have the skill name localized as Riot Gun instead. The localization of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse reintroduces "Freikugel" specifically for the Demi-fiend's unique skill which deals Almighty damage, to distinguish Riot Gun in the same game. This distinction via skill names is not present in the Japanese version of the game.
