* WhereItAllBegan: If you take the three SuperNintendo-based SMT titles (SMT 1, SMT 2, and ''If'') as a kind of "trilogy" this applies after a fashion. SMT 1 begins in the dreams of the Protagonist of that game; [[spoiler:the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon of ''If'' is the Mindscape of Hazama, using the same "dream" graphical effect from SMT 1]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: [[spoiler:Akira's]] path, unlike the other possible path options, is only consisting of one huge tower instead of being segmented into worlds like the other paths that the game give to you. Those who play ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' will be familiar with this, as the world in [[spoiler:Akira's]] path is similar to Tartarus.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Reiko's ending in particular. The school is saved and almost everyone makes it out alive, but Reiko and Hazama are never seen again after Reiko thanks Tamaki for helping to save Hazama from himself...]]

* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Tamaki as she reached the end of Reiko's route; as while leaving Hazama's DreamWorld upon its collapse, Reiko tells her to release all the demons she's recruited thus far, and upon returning to the real world, her level also returns to 1.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In a meta-example, ''If'' serves as this for the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' franchise, as many elements from ''If'' would later be expanded in the original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' game, essentially making ''If'' the cornerstone of an ''entire'' AlternateContinuity.

Added DiffLines:

* ForWantOfANail: Arguably the game itself. What started as a simple WhatIf game would later create Atlus' [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona most successful franchise]] yet, with said franchise's popularity even ''eclipsing'' the mainline ''Shin Megami Tensei'''s popularity.

* NoExportForYou: This is one of the few SNES-era SMT games still lacking a FanTranslation, to boot. Interestingly, due to the somewhat less "controversial" nature of the game's content compared to the rest of the series (that is, [[spoiler: you only fight a student who wants to ''be'' God instead of ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu actually fighting]]'' God]]), there were [[EpilepticTrees whispers]] that the game was considered for a Western release, but this obviously never bore fruit.
** Aeon Genesis has announced that their fan translation is "roughly halfway done", however. We may see this in English after all!



* ShoutOut: [[spoiler:Akira gets possessed by the demon Amon. [[Manga/{{Devilman}} Now where have I seen this before...]] ]]

* AlternateContinuity: Infamous for spawning [[VideoGame/{{Persona}} a continuity]] that would end up ''eclipsing'' its "mother" franchise in popularity and profitability.
