Ahriman, also known as Angra Mainyu is the Zoroastrian god of evil and the void, and the eternal opponent of Ahura Mazda, the supreme deity of light, life and righteousness, being the entity responsible for the creation of the world's plagues and evils, and governing legions of dark spirits known as "daēvas." He is said to have fought against Ahura Mazda long before the creation of the world, in a battle that ultimately resulted in him being defeated and cast into the depths of the abyss.

This relationship between the two, as well as Zoroastrianism's status as a monolatric religion, bring Ahriman in close proximity to the western conception of "Satan" or "The Devil" as a malign entity who rebels against God's light, and some even theorize that the figures of Ahriman and Ahura Mazda inspired such dichotomy to begin with.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Buffs and Debuffs: A set of skills that, as the name implies, allows the caster to greatly amplify their own physical attributes and reduce that of their foes, thus allowing one to stand up to much stronger opponents by closing or even reversing the gap in power between them. Outside of gameplay limitations, they can be stacked indefinitely, and sufficient usages of buffs allow the caster to survive attacks that would otherwise obliterate them with only minor injuries and amplify their speed to the point of completely outspeeding opponents that could previously predict all of their movements, while debuffs have a directly proportional effect on the enemy's statistics.

  • Dekaja: Removes all buffs from all foes.
  • Dekunda: Removes all debuffs from himself and all allies.

Almighty Attacks: The highest class of spells in the Megami Tensei franchise, consisting largely of powerful non-elemental attacks that have the special property of completely bypassing any resistances or immunities that a target may possess, be them innate or magically enforced, the latter of which including anything from reflective barriers to items that distort the very laws of the universe in order to protect the user from all forms of damage, and they are likewise unable to blocked, drained or generally defended against.

  • Megidolaon: Unleashes a wave of destructive energy which deals heavy damage to all foes, tapping into the pale light of divinity that reigns over destruction itself and engulfing them in "the complete annihilation beyond death."
  • 240,000,000,000 Evils: A dark spell that channels Ahriman's power and authority in order to deal massive damage to all neutral-aligned targets.
