Final Boss in Shadow Hearts: Covenant

The battle with this demon (who is, in reality, Kato) has you off against Susano-O, Kusanagi Sword, Yata Mirror, and Yakakani Gem


Most powerful of the ancient Japanese Aramitama gods, he was resurrected by Kato's nihilistic spirit. His fury threatens to bring the Earth to utter ruin.

Etymology Edit

Susano-o, or Susanowo, is the Japanese god of storms and one of the more prominent members of the Japanese pantheon. In some of the common creation myths, he challenged his sister Amaterasu to a contest in who can create the most gods. Amaterasu spawned some from Susanowo's sword, while Susanowo did the same with Amaterasu's necklace. He declared himself the victor and threw up a storm that destroyed heaven's weaving hall. Disheartened, Amaterasu fled into a cave and the sun failed to shine. All the gods lured her out eventually, forcing Susanowo out of heaven.

In another myth, he encountered a family whose daughters were devoured by the eight-headed serpent Orochi. And it was due to devour their eighth and last daughter. Susanowo agreed to help them, in exchange for their daughter in marriage. They agreed. So Susanowo lured Orochi to drink some sake to the point of drunkeness. Then he slew it. He was credited for finding the Kusanagi sword, the imperial regalia sword, in the monster's tail.

Trivia Edit

  • The eight "Dragon" heads at the entrance to the field of time are perhaps a reference to the serpent Orochi.
  • Killing Susano-O ends the battle, so it is possible to ignore the Regalia and kill him to end the battle quickly.
  • The three things that aid him in the battle are the three sacred treasures of Japan.
