Location[edit | edit source]

Janus encounter location

Janus appears in exactly one location ingame, but can be encountered repeatedly.

It is recommended to equip the Gold Necklace, to increase the encounter rate before attempting to find Janus.

He is found Beyond the Gate, in the area just before the final save point, underneath the last malice tree structure, and will eventually appear in a random encounter.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Janus - god of duality.

Janus (Lat: Ianus) was the Roman god of beginnings, endings, duality, transistion, gates, and duality.

He was often depicted with two faces; one looking to the past, and the other, the future.

Its Japanese name, "アジトボス", (Ajitobosu) names it simply, "Hideout Boss".

It previously appeared in Shadow Hearts: Covenant as a boss enemy.
