  • Third Eye can only be blocked by two demons in the whole game (Griffith and Beelzebub (Human)), going even through Five Elements-like barriers. It is also treated as a Physical attack and as such can Crit.
  • Ishvara provides auto-Rebellion and passively boosts his accuracy and crit chance.
  • Insane set of panels that give him everything he needs (accuracy, ST damage and reduced MP cost).
  • Incredible Elemental resistances especially in Teal. All these Elemental Drains make him an excellent partner for Rama and Demiurge - Drain Elec in particular allows him to soft-counter Passionate Rage.

PvE Builds

PvP Builds


  • Purple: Savage Glee to boost his crit rate for Third Eye.
  • Teal: Drain Force to cover his weakness. Also makes him perfect for Drain teams alongside his innate Fire and Elec Drain.

The Third Eye that burns the sky!
ArchPurple.png Transferred Skills Notes:

An absurdly strong sweeper with a hard to block attack (except Human Beelzebub). Divines can be used if you don't have Angra Mainyu or you want to cast T1 against Ulice. Great Aim can be used if you face tons of dodge tanks or Speedster if you want to outspeed more. Teal can be used instead if you want to run with Rama or Demiurge.

The Hindu creator and destroyer of the world. Along with Vishnu, Shiva is one of the most revered gods in the Hindu faith. There is a belief that he will destroy the world near its end, purifying it during its reconstruction. He uses his destructive force towards demons, and bestows blessings on to those who worship him. His weapon is a trident of light, and his third eye is said to be able to set the world ablaze. A freak accident at the Summoning Portal caused these demons with a different appearance to appear.
