The Demon Compendium can only be accessed after players have completed the first few story quests in Ginza and the Great Underpass of Ginza.

It will be available after the Collector Manikin gives you the letter to allow passage to Ikebukuro.

Go to the Cathedral of Shadows in Ikebukuro

Once in Ikebukuro, go to the Cathedral of Shadows. The Minister will tell you that the Demon Compendium has now been unlocked and is ready for use.

How to Use the Demon Compendium

Register Your Demons

All demons you recruit will automatically be registered into the Demon Compendium. Each demon will be registered using their base stats and skills, only.

Remember, this only works for demons you recruit. Encountered demons will not be registered unless recruited.

Overwriting Registered Demons

Overwriting Demons

Players can also choose to overwrite existing demon records in the Compendium. You will only have this option if your demon has different skills from the Compendium record.

This option will not be available if your demon has only learned its personal skillset. Even if it is a higher level, you can only overwrite the records if the skills of your version are different from the Compendium's!

Summoning Demons

Summoning Demons

You can summon registered demons to your side by selecting the View option. All registered demons can be viewed and summoned from this tab.

Unlike Fusion, using the Summon feature of the Demon Compendium requires Macca! The higher the level of the demon, the more Macca you have to pay.

Safely Dismiss Unused Demons

With the Demon compendium unlocked, players no longer have to hold on to recruited demons that they don't use.

Should you need them at some point in the game, it's as easy as visiting a nearby Cathedral of Shadows and using Macca to summon them back to your side.
