Shin Megami Tensei III demon reviews


Shin Megami Tensei III (known as Lucifer's Call in my home of Europe, and as Nocturne in the US) is my favourite game on the PS2, and one of my favourite games of all time. One of the things I love about it is the monster designs by Kazuma Kaneko, sourced from various countries' folklore, cryptids and popular culture. Here's where I'll be reviewing them periodically.

These reviews will be in order of the demons' base level, so they'll progress kind of in the order you'd encounter them in the game. I'll also group together evolutionary lines into one update, as well as grouping together demons with very similar designs that I feel don't justify individual reviews.

There will be unmarked plot spoilers throughout.
