The Orias wiki last edited by Eirikr on 05/17/13 07:02AM View full history

In Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

In the beginning of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Orias is responsible for the death of Commander Gore. Immediately following that event, the player must fight Orias as the game's first boss fight.  He also appears later on the lower floors of sector Delphinus in random encounters. 


Orias plays a role in a bit of technical Strange Journey trivia. Atlus implemented copy-protection in the game that would prevent illegal copies from generating any random battles. Besides not being able to gain any experience, more importantly this prevents the player from being able to recruit any other demons into his/her party. The idea then, is that Orias' boss fight would be an insurmountable roadblock and prevent the player from advancing in the game.
