When thinking about which skills should be transferred to a demon, consider these guidelines as a general rule:

  1. Does it have any weaknesses? If it has a single weakness, you should cover it up with a [Resist x] transfer, as the press turn system makes weaknesses deadly.
  2. Figure out the role that you want the demon to fulfill and give skills that fit it.


Resist skills are used to cover up a weakness on a demon.

  • Resist Phys (4★ Hanuman)
  • Resist Fire (4★ Pazuzu)
  • Resist Ice (4★ Odin)
  • Resist Elec (4★ Throne)
  • Resist Force (4★ Pallas Athena)
  • Resist Light (4★ Bishamonten)
  • Resist Dark (4★ Girimehkala)

Physical Skills

Passive skills work the best when a demon already has a physical skill.

  • Phys Boost (4★ Wu Kong)
  • Bloody Glee (3★ Silky (Red Gacha), 3★ Kaiwan (Purple Gacha), 3★ Koumokuten (Purple Gacha), 3★ Feng Huang (Red Gacha))
  • Savage Glee (4★ Orochi (Teal Gacha), 4★ Sarasvati (Purple Gacha))
  • Good Aim (3★ Kresnik (Teal Gacha), 3★ Isis (Yellow Gacha))

Self buff skills work well when you're able to prepare for them (by doing it before a wave, or using a series of passes to power up a single demon)

  • Charge (3★ Berserker)

Physical Skills should be given only if a demon lacks a physical skill already.

Counter skills can be useful in situational circumstances.

Almighty magic doesn't contain as much power as Elemental magic, but it ignores Makarakarn and the damage cannot be blocked.
