Shin Megami Tensei V Talisman locations: where to find all Talismans for Magatsuhi Skills

As you play through Shin Megami Tensei V, one of the main rewards you'll get for clearing sidequests or collecting Miman are Talismans. These key items are what allow both the Nahobino and his demons to perform Magatsuhi skills in battle.

Magatsuhi Skills are performed somewhat separately from typical skills in combat. Instead of being tied to the Press Turn system, a Magatsuhi skill can be performed on any turn, as long as your red-colored Magatsuhi gauge is filled in battle. Early on in the game, this gauge only fills a little bit each turn, but as you gain more Glory, you'll be able to unlock Miracles that allow the gauge to fill more frequently in battle, such as every time you hit an enemies weakness.

Every race of demon has a Talisman to collect, which will unlock its Magatsuhi skill. Certain Magatsuhi skills are more useful than others - one quite useful one to note is Fairy Dance from Fairy-race demons. To be honest, even the default Omagatoki: Critical is quite useful throughout the game. Note that for the Nahobino to use Demon Magatsuhi skills, he first needs to unlock the Miracle 'Race Transcendence'.

Below is the location of all of the Talismans to be found in Shin Megami Tensei V. If you find this guide handy, be sure to check out our walkthrough to every side quest, plus our location guides for Petrified Demons, Miman, and Mitama.
