Tips and Details

  • Manic Demon Skills are all considered to be separate skills from Altar of Evil.
    • Because of this, effects that boost Altar of Evil's damage will not boost the damage of these five skills.
    • Despite this, [Mod] Altar of Evil also changes these five skills.
  • As you cannot use any other skills or attacks while in Manic Demon Form, it is best to use certain buff skills before activating Altar of Evil.
  • The third during her combo will instead hit 2 + 4 times should you not press the 4th .
  • works much like Mega Electron Ball: Justice and can be charged and held while doing other things. However, casting a skill will cancel the attack.
    • The spears are capable of homing back in on the same target after piercing, for a maximum of 6~16 explosion (117%) hits on one target.
  • Be warned that dodging attacks is significantly more difficult in this state as Lu is not as mobile and lacks the ability to phase through enemies.
  • Pressing immediately after causes Lu to jump abnormally high.
  • Awakening while in Manic Demon Form when a loading screen appears will cause the awakening to be canceled.
    • In the same way, if a room transition interrupts Lu mid-transformation, your Combination Gauge will be used and the transformation will not happen.
      • Strangely, if the Manic Demon cancel sequence is interrupted, your Combination Gauge will still be safely refunded and its attack will be stored and automatically used shortly afterwards.
  • You can technically bring up your secondary skill slots during Manic Demon, even though visually they won't show up.
    • However, you'll be unable to use Manic Demon Skills or the skills equipped to those slots.
  • If the Transcendence Buff activates while you are in Manic Demon form, the cooldown of all Manic Demon form skills will be reduced instead of just the one (that would be) in the Transcendence skill slot (Default F).



  • Lu's voice becomes slightly deeper while in Manic Demon Form, most noticeable during one of her victory poses.
  • While Noblesse gains her power back naturally over time, Diabla instead forces the power out of her body instantly, heavily straining her contract with Ciel.
  • Her attack fires soul spears that are similar to the ones in Noblesse's Soul Sigil, Spectral Spear, and Spirit Enhance skills, though they look more sinister to further signify Lu's more cruel personality.
