** It's not just at the beginning of the game. If you're willing to sift between the [[CassandraTruths Cassandra Truths]] and the people who actually ''are'' crazy, you can learn some important plot points far earlier than you normally do. Some things you can learn early: [[spoiler:Everyone in Roppongi is a zombie, the Basilica is the Millennium Kingdom, and Thorman isn't human]].

* MoneySpider: Justified. Demons are fascinated with human culture and carry around yen coins like trinkets. [[spoiler:AfterTheEnd, all the currency changes to demon money anyway, so it still makes sense]].


Added DiffLines:

* PinataEnemy: Human enemies like Bodyconians and the Messians and Gaeans always drop a lot more cash than demons.

* FusionDance: The Cathedral of Shadows, making its first appearance in its current incarnation, [[note]]In ''Megami Tensei'', the Minister was not present[[/note]] performs these between two or three of your demons. Takeshi and Pascal also do it, with the former becoming a cross between a Samurai and Spider-Man, and the latter becoming Cerberus.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodColorsEvilColors: Chaos characters are decked out in black and red, and Law characters don blue and white. Depending on which one you side with, this trope is either inverted or played straight.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Plenty of people at the beginning of the game are labelled as crazy or hallucinating when they ramble on about [[ConspiracyTheory demons appearing in the streets, the government kidnapping and experimenting on people, and the world coming to an end]]. That doesn't even ''begin'' to cover what happens AfterTheEnd.

* PhlebotinumBreakdown: You require Magnetite to keep your demons summoned. If you have none, their HP starts to go down very quickly.

to:

Because of this, you lose some Magnetite every time you take a step and have a demon summoned. Once you run out of Magnetite, your demons summoned. If you have none, their HP starts to go down very quickly.will start losing health with every step instead.

''Shin Megami Tensei'' is a first-person dungeon crawler much in the same vein as the [=RPGs=] of its time, such as ''A Bard's Tale'' or ''Wizardry''[[note]]in fact, the early ''Megami Tensei'' games in general seem to take a lot of their design beats from ''Wizardry IV'', what with recruiting monsters, limited numbers of human heroes, and very complex dungeons[[/note]]. It uses a turn-based battle system, though you are given the option to talk to a demon before you battle to see if you can endear yourself to it. By winning the favour of a demon, you can ask it for money, items, healing or to join your party. However, demons do not gain experience points so the only way to strength your party is to fuse two or more demons together at the Jakyou Manor, creating vastly more powerful demons that can exceed your own level.
