!!Alice
[[quoteright:200:[[ShinMegamiTensei http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/-Alice_7404.jpg]]]]
--> ''"A ghost who appears as a small blonde girl. She seems young, but her magic powers are formidable. She is either the ghost of an English girl who died a sad death, or an evil spirit from a fevered writer's mind."''
-->-- '''Compendium info from Devil Survivor 2'''


Alice is a minor character appearing in the ShinMegamiTensei series. A young girl possessing formidable magic powers, she is taken care of by her "uncles", the Count in Red and the Baron in Black, of which both care for her deeply.

* AliceAllusion
** The Shin Megami Tensei Alice shares many physical similarities with the character, most notably the blue dress and the blond hair. Also, her signature move "Die For Me!" seems to draw inspiration from the book. Furthermore, her Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINE attack, "Mad Tea Party", takes further inspiration from the book as it references the chapter in which the protagonist met the Mad Hatter and March Hare.
** In ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney Strange Journey]]'', Alice desires to catch the Hare of Inaba in the Ex Mission "Catch That Rabbit". It involves falling down several holes.
* AmbiguousInnocence
* BackFromTheDead
* BonusBoss
** In ShinMegamiTenseiII, Alice can be fought should Aleph manage to find a distinct gold chest in the factory near Betelgeuse's lair. Upon reaching the Gold Chest, Alice appears and asks Aleph whether she can keep the treasure. Should Aleph answer no, Alice attacks Aleph. Defeating her awards players with one of the [[InfinityPlusOneSword five strongest weapons]] of the game.
** Alice appears as a secret demon in RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy. In order to summon her, Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV must first hear a rumor from the blond girl in the Shin-Sekai Soda Joint describing telephone booths around the capital. He then must check the public phone in Tsukudo-Cho near the shrine with a Belial in the party. Next, he must check the phone in Harumi-Cho with a Nebiros in the party. Finally, with both demons in party, Raidou must answer the phone in Ginza-Cho, which will call Alice up from Hell. If Raidou defeats her, he can then summon her by fusing Raja Naga and Jack Frost.
** Alice appears as a Case File boss for the Chaos-Alignment exclusive "One Girl's Happiness" case in RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon. First, Raidou must complete the two "My Wish" cases. Later, a request from "[[ArsGoetia Uncle Red and Uncle Black]]" will appear in the Case Files section. They have lost Alice and come to Raidou for help finding her. Raidou must then speak to two girls by the Tamoten Shrine in Tsukudo-Cho. According to them, there's a rumor that a blue-eyed foreign girl lingers in the back stall of a bathroom in their school. The girl will ask a person if they will be her friend, and if somebody agrees then she will kill them. The girl who explains the rumor reveals that she said no and that the girl is still haunting her. Alice will then appear and pose the same question to Raidou. [[ButThouMust Regardless of the answer]], a battle will initiate.
** Alice can be summoned in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' after the MC finishes the Ex-Mission "Catch that Rabbit" in Sector Fornax and after reaching Level 39 with the Fiend Converter. Originally, she posts the mission herself to ensure the capture of the "rabbit", upon which the MC pursues the rabbit across several holes until cornered. Once this happens, Alice, if allowed, will begin [[KickTheDog brutalizing the rabbit]] until stopped by the protagonist and confronted. Upon defeat, she will fade away.
** In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' she is the ultimate boss who can only be fought during a NewGamePlus and once all other bonus bosses have been defeated. [[spoiler:She is also accompaned by Belial and Nebiros in the fight.]]
** In ''Megami Ibunroku VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', at Deva Yuga, Avidya World, the Ruins and in Devil's Peak, Alice can be found as a BossInMooksClothing. She's level 99, strong to everything and has 999 HP. You can't run, negotiate, or recruit her. Beating her nets you quite the sum of XP. and she can drop the item Pagan King, which enables the player to fuse Beelzebub, though she has an enconter rate of 1/256 making her a MetalSlime.
* ButThouMust: When the Protagonist confronts Alice in ShinMegamiTenseiI, she questions if the Protagonist would "die for her" and join the citizens of Roppongi. Should the Protagonist decline, he is forced to fight both Belial and Nebiros in separate battles. Alternatively, even should the Protagonist agree, he will not die, bemusing Alice and forcing them to fight both Belial and Nebiros.
* CameBackWrong: ''Very'' much so. She was once just a normal human, you see. Now she spends her days befriending everyone who will take the time to chat with her for a while... before brutally having them killed [[CreepyAwesome by Wonderland's soldiers and her obscenely overpowered magic]].
** The Hare of Inaba explains it best in Strange Journey: the Fiend you keep on fighting throughout the games is very likely not even the real Alice, but rather, her memory, born of the magics that rendered the original insane and very likely killed her. This is what caused the rather twisted form of reincarnation, as mentioned above. And the worst part? The demons gave her that magic because they loved her. [[TearJerker They wanted her to be forever young]], forever happy. Talk about HoistByHisOwnPetard...
* CatchPhrase: "Could you die for me, please?" which is the origin of her SignatureMove "Die For Me!".
* CompositeCharacter: While the Lewis Carroll references are abundant, there's also a Scandinavian myth of a girl named Alice that died when she was young, became a spirit, and was driven insane from her extreme magical power. The myth was used to scare children into behaving, or else Alice would kill them at night so that she could be "friends" with them. Her actions in the first ''VideoGame/{{Shin Megami Tensei|I}}'' are an allusion to this myth, and her compendium entry in ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney Strange Journey]]'' seem to suggest that she could be a reference to one or the other.
** The Mad Hatter and a demon based on the White Rabbit called Clock Rabbit have appeared within the Devil Children games. With Alice and Clock Rabbit appearing in Devil Children White. Making it possible that she could possibly be both.
* CreepyChild: Her innocence, her powers and her sadism really don't mix well.
* CreepyDoll: In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' she's shown holding dolls resembling the Red Count and the Black Baron, two important characters from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI''.
* CuteGhostGirl
* DarkMagicalGirl: For all her cuteness, she's still a powerful Fiend and often ranks high in Lovers and Death Arcanas.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', if you refuse to let her learn a new skill or change an existing skill, she will ask you, [[CatchPhrase "Will you die for me?"]] Even if she's trying to skill-change [[SignatureMove Die for Me!]] of all things.
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Alice had befriended Nebiros and Belial since she was an ordinary mortal girl.
* ElegantGothicLolita
* FateWorseThanDeath: Becoming her "friend"...
* GiveMeYourInventoryItem: In VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI, she asks the protagonist to give her a Hiranya. In ''RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon'', she repeats the request.
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Two "Uncles"]]: [[ArsGoetia Nebiros and Belial]]
* HumanoidAbomination: She looks like, and unusually for this trope, ''acts'' like a little girl. Doesn't mean she ''is'', though. Her Racial Skill in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' is even ''Unearthly Form''.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Even if she has no idea of how to treat them.
* LackOfEmpathy: A very big part of her problem. She has no idea, being a completely innocent (if completely insane) undead, why others don't want to die.
* LifeDrain: In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'', Energy Drain was one of her starter attacks. Then, in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'', she got Vitality Drain, which allows her to siphon HP from nearby enemies in a very wide area, allwing her to easily refill her tanks to immediately get back to pounding you. In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', she gets Energy Drain again.
* LittleMissBadass: You ''will'' die if you decide to get cocky with her.
* MadeOfExplodium: Not her, but the undead she summons blow up rather painfully in ''RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon''.
* {{Necromancer}}: In both ''Raidou'' games. She's also skilled enough to bring back Belial and Nebiros if you destroy them in her battle in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2''.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: She's [[GenkiGirl cheerfully oblivious]] to the horrors she causes.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: In the Raidou Kuzunoha games, her battles have her continuously summoning undead monsters. And then [[FridgeHorror you realize]] [[FateWorseThanDeath what happens to "her friends"]]...
* NoSell: In both ''Strange Journey'' and ''IV'', not only is she immune to Dark spells, she outright ignores any and all ailments except Bomb in ''SJ''.
* ObliviouslyEvil: She just wants friends. A pity she doesn't quite comprehend that she would have plenty more if she did not continuously kill and devour them.
* OneHitKill: Her SignatureMove Die for Me! inflicts the Dark-elemental variety with a very high chance of success.
* OriginalGeneration: A [[{{Mons}} Mon]] who doesn't come from any existing mythology (though see CompositeCharacter above).
* [[RaisedByAnimals Raised By Demons]]
* {{Reincarnation}}: In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'', the Hare of Inaba notes both he and Alice were nothing but memories doomed to forever wander, repeating the cycle of pain and death endlessly, until the Protagonist defeated Alice and allowed both the Hare and Alice to move on.
* SealedEvilInACan: After the battle with her in RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon, Belial and Nebiros will appear and trap Alice's soul in a Staff of Death. They then give Raidou the Staff of Death asking him to revive Alice through fusion.
* SignatureMove: "Die For Me!", the strongest Curse/Mudo-based skill (Almighty in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'') in the Megaten series. [[NightmareFuel She summons corrupt armies of undead Wonderland soldiers to skewer her enemies]]. Even worse, it's not quite as much a ''demand'' as it is a ''request'', which means it is pure loneliness, not anger or spite, making her ask you to die...
* TheSociopath: Exhibits traits of this. Unusually, she never actually tries to deceive you or manipulate you; she's just that innocent, naive and sadistic.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Everything she does.
* UndeadChild: She has been that way for a ''very'' long time...
* {{Yandere}}: If you value your life, have no compunctions about destroying her. [[FateWorseThanDeath The results of failing to do so have already been amply exposed]]. On the other hand, be ready to deal with Belial and Nebiros if you do. The results of failing to do so are even worse. [[spoiler:Except in VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2 where they leave after her death, and in ''King Abaddon'' where they seal the weakened Alice in a staff and ask Raidou to revive her with it.]]

[[folder:Matador]]
!!Matador
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/matador_9418.jpg]]
--> ''"A Spanish Grim Reaper born from the pursuit of aesthetics killing. With his terrifying sword Espada, he now preys on humans rather than bulls."''
-->-- '''Compendium info in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne'''

A member of the Fiend family. Despite being a skeleton dressed in a ridiculous matador costume, [[ThatOneBoss don't take him lightly.]]

* BloodKnight
* BonusBoss: In ''II'', ''Strange Journey'', and ''IV''. In ''Nocturne'', he's the only Fiend other than Dante you're required to fight to continue on.
* BreakoutCharacter: Among the Fiends, at least in the main series. His performance in ''Nocturne'' was so well remembered that he ended up being one of only two previous non-Revelation Fiends to appear in ''Strange Journey'' and ''IV''. In fact, including ''II'', he and Pale Rider appear as Fiends in more main series games than any other Fiend.
* BullfightBoss: Inverted in ''Nocturne'', fittingly enough. His strategy is to buff his evasion like crazy, and retaliate with brutal attacks when you inevitably miss. In other words, he turns ''you'' into a Bullfight Boss.
* CombatAestheticist
* DashingHispanic
* DemBones: Like most other Fiends.
* LargeHam: He acts as if he's a fighter in an arena.
* LightningBruiser: He turns himself into one in ''Nocturne'' and will wipe the floor with you unless you catch up.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: ''"I swear, by my sword and capote, that I will once again prove victorious!"''
* SuperSpeed: His Red Capote skill gives him a full hit/evade rate buff.
* WakeUpCallBoss: A very well known example in ''Nocturne''. He pretty much teaches you how important buffs are by [[LightningBruiser buffing his speed up like crazy]] to dodge most of your attacks (which wastes up your precious Press Turns) and has strong physical attacks that are guaranteed to hit.
