So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is the second game in the Devil Survivor sub-series of the Megami Tensei franchise, depicting humanity's struggle against alien invaders over the course of seven days.

Hmmm...
To do:
Apparently Samael and Holy Ghost have leftover data (clan, level, stats, etc.). What is it, and do the Bel demons have any as well?

Unused Demons

Seven demons have entries in the Compendium, despite not actually appearing in-game. Five of them (Jezebel, Beldr, and Belberith as Bel demons; Anael and Sariel as mid-bosses) appeared in the first Devil Survivor as storyline bosses. These demons can actually be put in the game via hacking, some of which aren't fully functional. Possibly, the developers wanted to make the three Bel demons available as regular demons for this game, like Beelzebub and Belial were, but changed their minds.

Via hacking, it is possible to register non-demons such as the Septentriones, but their entries will simply read UNKNOWN.

Holy Ghost

Angelic entities without
names.
 
It is said that many are
souls that never saw life.
As innocent souls, they are
allowed to become angels.

Beldr

More commonly known as Baldr,
the god of light in Norse lore
and son of Odin and Frigg. He
is married to Nanna and has
two brothers, Hod and Hermod,
and a son named Forseti.
 
He was loved by all the gods,
but after having a nightmare
of his death, Frigg made all
the plants and animals swear
not to harm Baldr. Only the
mistletoe was passed over as
it was too young. Hearing this,
Loki tricked Hod into shooting
a mistletoe at Baldr, which
killed him. Hel promised to
revive Baldr is every living
thing cried for him, but the
giantess Thokk refused to
weep. When it was found that
Thokk was Loki in disguise,
the gods punished him. With
the world's light gone, it
took its first steps toward
Ragnarok.

This game refers to him as Baldr, like Shin Megami Tensei IV does, and he is still of the "Bel" race. His Immortal Race Skill reads "Nullify all attacks Move through obstacles", which describes his behavior in the first Devil Survivor 1. No image for him shows up in the Compendium or on his stat page, but he has images for battle. He can be used in Fusion, but with very few demons. Fusing him with a Megami demon results in Flaemis, while fusing him with Hero results in Omega. His fusion message is blank.

Samael

A mysterious angel whose name
means "poison of God."
 
He is often depicted as a
serpent. Opinions differ on
whether he is fallen or not,
but either way, he is linked
with death.

Samael is a Level 74 Fallen demon, who instead of his own image uses the main character's. However, he can be used in fusion like any Fallen demon can.

Anael

He is one of the Secundeis angels
recorded by Johannes Trithemius, and is
the spirit of Venus.

He is considered to be the same as
Haniel, who appears in the Book of Enoch.
His role is to watch over the rules of the
world and protect those who make charms to
ward off evil.

Anael is a Divine demon and thus has Angel Stigma as a Racial Skill. Functions more or less normally.

Sariel

One of the Seven Archangels.
His name means "God's command,"
and he is said to be an angel
of death.

His role is to watch over human
souls and prevent them from
sinning. He also governs the
phases of the moon, but as a 
result of telling that secret
to humans, he fell from grace.
He is said to have silently
left the heavens with dignity.
He also has an evil eye that
can hurt anyone it falls upon.

Like Anael, Sariel is a Divine demon that learns Angel Stigma as its Racial Skill. Functions more or less normally.

Jezebel

Phoenician princess and wife
of Ahab who appears in the
Book of Kings.
 
She introduced Baal to the
Jews, but when Elijah defeated
the prophets of Baal and
Asherah, she tried to kill him.
After Ahab died, her sons
Ahaziah and Joram sat on the
throne, but both died in a
coup led by Jehu, son of
Josefat. She was thrown from
a balcony, then ran over with
a chariot, and her remains
were left for the dogs. All
this was as prophesied by
Elijah, as retribution for
killing Naboth for his
vineyard.

Oddly, she's referred to as Izabel in this game. While Isabel and Jezebel sound similar, the two names are not related, so this may have been a mistake or mistranslation. Her Racial Skill, "Hot Flower", is described as "Attack range 3 Does not move". In fusion, she cannot be fused with any demons other than Vile, which will result in Flaemis. Her fusion message is blank.

Belberith

One of the 72 demons of the
Goetia and the duke of Hell.
 
Said to be derived from Baal-
Berith or Baalberith, a god
of the Canaanite city mentioned
in the Old Testament, later
known as a demon in
Christianity. According to
Sebastien Michaelis,
Baalberith tempts men to
blasphemy and is an adversary
to St. Barnabus. Before his
fall from grace, he was prince
of the cherubim.

Has no image on his stat screen, but functions perfectly in battle. He still has the "Violent God" Racial Skill, which works as described (Infinite Attack Range - Does not move). Fusing him with Dragon demons will result in Flaemis, Snake will produce Fallen, Vile will produce Megami, and Megami will also result in Megami. Has a blank fusion message.
