As demons level up extremely slowly, the quickest way to maintain a strong team is to [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction fuse your demons together]] at the Cathedral of Shadows, creating entirely new demons with new powers and some inherited from their previous forms. A handful of demons will also evolve once they have reached a certain level. The Main Character develops by equipping different Magatama, each of which has a set of abilities that will be learned upon leveling up. An additional degree of difficulty is added by the fact that your character can only know eight skills at any one time, and must forget moves to learn new ones; once they are forgotten, they are LostForever.

[[PermanentlyMissableContent gone for good]].



* LostForever: Miss anything in the Shiodome portion of the Assembly of Nihilo and you never get a chance to go back for it. You also don't get a second chance to collect any treasure that you miss when traveling through the Amala Network.



* {{Nintendo Hard}}: It's a [=MegaTen=] game. OF COURSE IT'S HARD!

This game is a must-buy for any {{RPG}} enthusiast looking for a greater challenge than your average game and change from traditional fantasy settings. From the ruins of Vortex World Tokyo to the eclectic demon designs and the awesome rock/techno music of Shoji Meguro, there's just no other game like it. Though physical copies are now hard to come by, the game has hit the [=PlayStation=] Network Store, but only for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3.

In January 2004 the game received a UpdatedRerelease in Japan known as ''Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax''. It balanced a few of the game mechanics, added in a massive optional dungeon (and a new ending and [[TrueFinalBoss Final Boss]] if you complete it) and featured Dante of ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' fame as a GuestFighter. Considering that you are a demon and Dante is a demon hunter, you don't exactly meet on good terms. Fortunately, it was this version that was localized and released in the West. In PAL territories it was known as ''Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call'' due to copyright reasons. A second UpdatedRerelease named ''Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax Chronicle Edition'' came free with Japanese copies of ''RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon'', replacing Dante with Raidou.

* EverybodysDeadDave: The only true humans that remain after the conception are Yuko, Chiaki, Isamu, Hikawa, Hijiri [[spoiler: or not in Hijiri's case]] and the protagonist (and even then only partly). Everyone else? If they aren't turned into pure Magatsuhi, they either get reincarnated into Manikins, the Vortex World equivalent of humans, who suffer from muscle spasms and are [[spoiler:unable to make their own Reasons unlike real humans]], or they get reincarnated into Souls, the Vortex World equivalent to ghosts, who are mostly friendly but are still unable to do much, being intangible spirits. [[spoiler: At the very end of the game, all of them die too. Since you're not a human anymore, [[HumanitysWake the entire human race has died out[[.

[[spoiler: There is a DummiedOut sequence which explains Isamu's attitude - Yuko, the teacher he was fawning over, had broadcast a message for the PC to come and save her from her imprisonment at the Obelisk - this making Isamu fall into HeroicBSOD as he realizes he was little better than a nobody in the Vortex World.]]
