What are Skills?

Media Skill.jpg

Skills in Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne are abilities that the Protagonist and Demons can learn as they fight, converse, and level-up throughout the game.

Unlike the normal Attack action, skills can have different effects ranging from damage, healing, or passive buffing.

Due to the nature of the Press Turn Battle System, victory or defeat usually hinges on the right usage of skills during combat.

How to Learn Skills

Learn via Leveling Up

Leveling up is the most basic way of learning skills. Each demon has predetermined skills they can learn by leveling up. Once they have learned all skills they can learn, they will not be able to learn more skills. Once in this state, it is preferable to fuse said demons to make stronger demons that can inherit the skills this demon may have learned.

Protagonist's Magatama Affects Skills Learned

The Protagonist learn skills the same way as Demons but the skills he learns depends on the Magatama he has equipped. Each Magatama has a certain skill set and the protagonist may learn these skills while leveling and equipping the Magatama.

Inherit Via Fusion

You can make demons learn skills by having them inherit skills from previous demons via fusion. This is one of the best ways to create stronger demons as you can improve their skill repertoire by adding skills from your previous demons.

How to Use Skills

Skills in Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne are generally used during combat. During a player's turn, options will be given to perform different actions. The skills a certain Demon or Character has learned will appear in this list.

Players need only to select the skill to be used and then select its target.

Some skills, however, are passive. Instead of targetting enemies, they buff the player's party both inside and, in some cases, outside of combat.
