Krishna (クリシュナ, Kurishuna)? is a demon from Shin Megami Tensei. He is one of the primary deities of Hinduism, either being the 7th Avatar of Vishnu the Preserver, or the Supreme God himself. He is the leader of the Divine Powers, and a major antagonist in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. His goal is to lead the people of Tokyo into salvation through the Cosmic Egg, and to obtain his Kalki, so that he may become a Godslayer and dethrone YHVH, establishing a new universe where all gods shall rule as equals and have mortals equally distributed among them as their subjects.
