Nanashi SMT

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

~ Lyrics to Imagine, the song inscribed on Nanashi's clothing


Nanashi (lit. "Nameless") is the protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei IV Final. A member of the Hunters, he is killed during a mission, only to be resurrected by the mysterious demon Dagda. Due to circumstances seemingly unexplained, Nanashi is revived not as a human, but as something else: A Godslayer. Now, he walks a violent path, either with the goal of saving humanity from the Creator's tyranny, slaying him and bringing true freedom in the process, or to usurp the Creator's throne and rule in his place

Upon acquiring his Awakened Power, all of Nanashi's attacks became able to pierce through all defenses and resistances) | All previous Power and Abilities to immensely higher degrees, as well as Abstract Existence, Immortality (Types 1, 3, 4 and 8.

Attack Potency: Building level (Should be comparable to Tutorial Level Flynn) | At least Multi-Continent level (Defeated King Frost, who is capable of freezing the entire world) | At least Universe level+ (Defeated Medusa, who was capable of petrifying a Dominion and a Virtue with her powers. Managed to deal considerable damage to Shesha's first form with Ame-no-Habakiri, and dealt the finishing blow to it after Gaston pierced it with the Spear of Michael) | Multiverse level+ (Slayed Shesha's second form) | At least Multiverse level+, possibly High Multiverse level+ (Far stronger than both Lucifer and Merkabah, having defeated and killed both of them in rapid sucession. Fought with the likes of Inanna, and is stronger than Shesha in his Third Resurrection, with the act of him joining either Lucifer of Merkabah's forces being enough to make him flee from the scene. In the Massacre / Anarchy route, he easily stomped and killed all of his former friends, who all fought with Lucifer and Merkabah alongside him. Fought with Krishna as Vishnu-Flynn, and could inflict enough damage to him that one of his components died amidst the battle, forcing Krishna to separate from him before being effortlessly killed by Nanashi) | Complex Multiverse level (Fought with the Infinite Heads of the True Form of YHVH, and was capable of using his own Observation abilities to strip Him away from His divinity and status as the Omnipotent Creator God of the Universe, demonizing his nature and reducing him to a state that could be slayed without destroying all of existence) | Complex Multiverse level (Usurped YHVH's position and status as The One True God, replacing him as the new will and creator of a new Multiverse)

Speed: Supersonic+ (Capable of doing battle with weak Demons who can fight with armed opponents and dodge shots from realistic firearms) | FTL (Fought with King Frost, and should thus scale to Seere, the weakest Demon of the Goetia who is capable of stealing anything in the entire world in a single instant, and "pass over the whole earth in the twinkling of an Eye") | Immeasurable | Omnipresent as Creator Nanashi (Took YHVH's old Throne and Position to himself, and should thus have a similar nature to Him as the embodiment and creator of the Multiverse)

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Observation is described as being the power to "assign an answer to that which has no answer" and give form and structure to the formless. It is an abstract force, and a power granted by The Axiom to Humans, which shapes reality itself on a fundamental level, and the reason concepts and phenomena are personified into living beings, in the form of Gods and Demons, as well as the reason many of them are debased as being Demons or Saints by latter religions and different faiths, as the collective understanding and perception of Humans is capable of reshaping their very nature, either giving them consciousness, and raising them as Supreme Gods or latter turning them into mere fallen demons and angels whose powers are but a pale shadow of the might they once held.

Although all Humans possess the power Observation to small degrees, it is normally needed entire civilizations of them in order to affect reality on a meaningful way to create and shape Gods and Demons. However, as a Messiah, a special individual bestowed by The Axiom itself upon humanity in times of need, Nanashi's powers of Observation vastly exceed that of normal Humans, being fully capable of reproducing feats that would take hundreds of Humans by himself, with him being capable of debasing even Transcendental Supreme Gods such as YHVH, who had his Omnipotence and connection to the world he embodied denied in the Final Battle, turning him into a mere Demon that could be permanently killed in spite of ties with The Axiom itself
