Released only in Japan except for two games, ''Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children'' starts off with ''Red Book'' and ''Black Book'' for the UsefulNotes/GameboyColor (later given an UpdatedRerelease for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation), the story of Setsuna Kai and Mirai Kaname, a pair of human teenagers quickly revealed to be the titular Devil Children, half-humans and half-demons. This is a very rare occurrence and gives them great power when they come from the human world to the demon one - Setsuna, the hero of ''Black Book'', to rescue his younger brother Nagahisa, and Mirai, the heroine of ''Red Book'', to find out about her father. Once there, the situation quickly complicates far beyond their original goals, and to progress they must gather more [[{{Mons}} partners, or demons]], to fuse and raise in strength.

''White Book'' (Gameboy Color) takes place a few years after ''Red Book'' and ''Black Book'', though keeping many of the same characters and themes. Masaki Kuzuha is a teenage boy accused of putting Shou Ougi into a permanent sleep; both he and his friend Takaharu Ougi enter Makai in order to find a way to cure her. Forces seem set on putting them against each other, despite them being close friends.

''Light Book'' and ''Dark Book'' were the two games localized in America as ''Demi Kids: Light Version'' and ''Dark Version'' for UsefulNotes/GameboyAdvance. They again take the same story and show it from two different perspectives, ''Light Book'' from the slacker named Jin and ''Dark Book'' with Akira, his friend, as the hero. Who battle against the tyranny of the Imperium from Valhalla. This also received a non-localized anime.

''Fire Book'' and ''Ice Book'' for the Gameboy Advance still center around Jin, Akira, and their cast, which has angels and demons appearing on many worlds in order to fight each other and begin Armageddon after the events of ''Light/Dark''.

''Puzzle de Call'', a puzzle game for the Gameboy Advance. It stars the demon partners of Jin and Akira, known as Gale and Rand, as they attempt to save the two Devil Children who have been captured in another world.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: The Expanse is a pretty bright and cutesy place, but it's also the home of wars between demons and angels and have all of the world ending catastrophes that one would expect from the mainline games.

* LighterAndSofter: Sort of. By art style and script complexity, at least. {{Atlus}} really did make a valiant effort to produce this kind of game, but in the end they couldn't break out of their mold and just made the terrible things happen to younger people.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Quite a few demons that were good or while not good but weren't aligned to a certain side ended up becoming the minions of the villains in the anime. Zebul became the BigBad of the first anime, Raphael became a spy for the ObviouslyEvil Light Imperius and his ArsGoetia minions in the second anime, [[LightIsNotGood Enoch]], and more.

* ArsGoetia: Many bosses in the series are Goetia demons. Many of whom are either still Angels or allied with them. There are exceptions of course. Though due to being bosses they tend to belong to the Boss Type, which is made up of demons of different races faced during the story.



* OurAngelsAreDifferent: They vary in all forms, shapes, and sizes. Amongst them are the usual angels, several ArsGoetia demons, Satan, the [[UsefulNotes/{{Zoroastrianism}} Amesha Spentas]], and concepts.

* StarterMon: Each game in the series has one, and they depend on your version. One running theme throughout them is that they can evolve, unlike other demons, and they [[CantDropTheHero must be in your party.]] In ''Demi Kids,'' you can actually win the starters of previous player characters by participating in the game's series of battles.
