Disgaea 6: Playable Characters & Skills Revealed So Far


Nippon Ichi Software just revealed a lot more about Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny’s characters, special skills, and gameplay systems. Here’s a breakdown of some of them in this upcoming strategy JRPG.

Disgaea Staples

In Disgaea 6, combat is turn-based. You can fight in zany ways, like lifting and throwing party members AND enemies, as well as use team attacks.

Just like past games, you can also host a Dark Assembly where you can adjust in-game factors and conditions. Say if you want the game to have enemies drop more gold or have less health, you have to get a majority support to have that “bill” be approved.

New Disgaea 6-Exclusive Features

The game’s visuals are now in 3D. Part 6 also includes auto-battle mode and a 2x speed mode for “ease of play”. The game’s UI and menus are also streamlined so that it’s more convenient when either fighting in turn-based combat or managing your facilities and underworld HQ.

Juice Bar

Yes, you can build a healthy juice bar in your new Underworld base. This allows you to distribute experience points to allies that didn’t participate in combat. You can also distribute Mana, which you need to build facilities in your HQ. You can also use the bar to increase your character’s stats.

D-Merit Points

You can earn these points to strengthen your characters. All you need to do is complete pre-determined objectives in a battle.

New Generic Characters To Recruit

New to the Disgaea franchise are the Evil Eye and Clawed Shell. One’s a furry cow done Disgaea style who has high jumping power and high attack stats.

The other is a giant humanoid crab. Because of their hard shell and power, they have high defense and can obstruct enemy movements.

Other new generic recruitable characters include the Psychic and Armored Valkyrie.


The following generic characters will be returning in Disgaea 6: Prinnies, Zombies, Sea Angels, Dragons, Succubi, Horsemen, Winged Warriors, Warrior, Witch, Clergy, Martial Artist, Thief, Archer, Gunner, Magic Knight, Armor Knight, Lady Samurai, and Ninja.

Evilities & Special Skills

Evilities are powerful abilities that are character-specific. They remain in effect as long as certain conditions are met. There are two types of Evilities:

“Special Skills” consist of various skills such as attack and recovery that require you to spend SP in battle. Special Skills include character-specific skills that can only be used by a specific character, as well as magic that can be used by anyone.
