The next Creator/CompileHeart game developed under the direction of Keiji "Shin" Inafune.

The plot revolves around Chou Chou, [[AGodAmI a self-proclaimed god]] who wishes for [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]].

It was released in Japan on March 22, 2012, and by [[Creator/NipponIchi NIS America]] in Europe on September 28th, 2012 and in the U.S. on October 16th, 2012.

Not to be confused with {{MUGEN}} ([[{{Crossover}} though somebody might put this game's characters in there if they haven't already]]).

NOTE: Character page currently under construction.

A sequel was released, entitled ''"Mugen Souls Z"'' detailing the adventures of Sylma, who wants to become the new "Undisputed God", with her two followers Ace and Nao.

!! ''Attouteki Yuugi Mugen Souls''

* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap: Trailers show that 9999 is the highest level you can obtain in this game.
** [[UpToEleven Absurdly]] [[{{HSQ}} High]] [[{{Cap}} Damage Cap]]: Trailers show multi-hit attacks easily breaking ten-digit damage. At one point, a finishing move is shown to cause a grand total of ''over six-and-a-half '''billion''' HP damage''! Even for a Nippon Ichi-associated RPG, I think that's a new record!
** One of the screenshots on the website shows an attack doing over '''933''' ''billion'' damage.
* AmnesiacGod: Chou Chou has no idea who she is other than knowing that she's a god.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: The Normal Ending. Chou-Chou abandons her peons in order to destroy Vorgis for good. While a post-credits scene shows they eventually found her somewhere at the edge of the universe, and can speak with her, she is unable to come back with them. Thankfully, it seems this ending isn't canon.]]
* {{Bowdlerize}}: NISA decided to remove a mini-game that has controversial elements in it to avoid the [=AO=] [=ESRB=] rating ([[http://nisamerica.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=9704 as discussed by a mod]]).
* CallingYourAttacks: A variation with Soul. When casting a spell, he'll say "Spell" and then just say whatever it does. Such as "Spell! That magically teleports me safely to the castle!" Or "Spell! That heals all wounds in a flash of light!".
* CensorSteam: Necessary for the various bath scenes, and in the Japanese version, a small extra mechanic to the hot spring minigame.
* CharacterCustomization: [[RuleOfThree Trailers show]] that you're able to create different characters.
** You can customize the clothing of everyone in the playable party, including the main characters.
* CloningBlues: [[spoiler: A few of your party members get cloned for some bizarre reason in the post-game and you must fight them with their levels in the 1000 range. Good luck with that by the way, unless you've been LevelGrinding at the Mugen Field.]]
* ContestWinnerCameo: [[RecordOfAgarestWar Leonhardt Raglen]], [[{{Neptunia}} Neptune, Nepgear]], and [[SpectralSouls Hiiro]], will be included in the game via {{DLC}}. That's only one out of two batches, and the 2nd batch is still ongoing.
** [[http://www.compileheart.com/mugen/result.html Second batch of winners includes]] [[{{Neptunia}} Noire, Vert]], and [[RecordOfAgarestWar Fyuria.]]
* CoolShip: The [[{{Engrish}} Gcastle]]
* CrushBlush: Ryuto gets this all the time when someone pokes fun of his crush on Chou-Chou.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Subverted, [[spoiler: Vorgis is NOT Belleria's father afterall, and she isn't much of a villain.]]
* [[DefeatMeansFriendship Defeat Means Slavery]]: Every single boss fight ends with Chou-Chou having the defeated person as their slave.
* DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment: The 7th World is called "Earthen Soil World". Gee, might as well say "Planet Planet Planet".
* DiscOneNuke: it's pretty easy to wander into the Mugen Field at early levels, get into a random ship battle and get a huge EXP bonus, propelling your party forward 20 levels or more, pretty much steamrolling the rest of the main story for a time.
** Generally that could be bad, but in a game where you can increase the level way higher than you should, it's a pretty good thing.
* DifficultySpike: Chapter 8. And it only gets harder from there.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler: Beat the clones of your party members in the post-game of the GoldenEnding (good luck with that by the way) and look at the CG picture.]] That is all.
* DuelBoss: [[spoiler: Chou-Chou has a one-on-one match with Belleria.]]
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Personalities in Mugen Souls act as elements, and have corresponding strengths and weaknesses. Incompatible personalities will reduce the power of team attacks, adding a certain degree of strategy to party formation.
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler: Chou-Chou's true form really looks like [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Goddess Madoka]] albeit with more...[[LampshadedDoubleEntendre filling.]]]]
** Ryuto has the same look, temperance and even English VA as Almaz, from Disgaea 3. (Who was also designed by Takehito Harada).
* ForgottenFriendNewFoe: [[spoiler: Belleria is Chou Chou's first friend and she forgot all about it.]]
* GuideDangIt: Getting the True Ending in typical Compile Heart fashion.
** Granted, they do give you some ideas on how to get it after getting the Normal End, but figuring out what the threshold is is up to you.
** [[spoiler: 20% average charmlevel and at least 19% on all personalities. FYI.]]
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Chou-Chou loves doing this all the time. To a lesser extent, so does Altis.
* HappinessInSlavery: Ryuto. To the max. This guy will never stop serving Chou-Chou if he can help it. Admittedly, Chou-Chou isn't a particularly harsh master... Most of the time...
* HatesBeingAlone: [[spoiler: Chou-Chou. It the reason she created her world in the first place. She became even lonelier after realizing that she was only an observer of the world she made, not a participant.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[SchmuckBait Go ahead, go overload]] that [[EnergyBall Peon Ball]]. [[TotalPartyKill We'll wait to see]] your reaction.
* HotSpringsEpisode: Brings back the good ol' fashion minigames from ''RecordOfAgarestWar2''
** Unusual for Compile Heart, this happens ''at the beginning of the game''.
* InformedAbility: Chou Chou Sadistic personality is actually not a real sadistic in fact she's more like of an arrogant queen, a real sadistic would be her Terse personality who shows absolute zero compassion to others and even [[TooKinkyToTorture managed to save Shirogane by torturing him so much that it excites him.]]
** NISA has confirmed they are making significant changes to the character in order to make her more sadistic to a western audience.
* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: Vorgis. Enough said.]]
* LauncherMove: Some skills enable you to launch enemies up in the air.
* LevelGrinding: Say hello to the [[BonusDungeon Mugen Field]].
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Chou-Chou Infinite has split herself up into seven different personalities: [[TheDitz Ditz]], [[GenkiGirl Hyper]], [[YamatoNadeshiko Graceful]], [[ElegantGothicLolita Terse]], [[AbusivelySexyWoman Sadistic]], [[TooKinkyToTorture Masochist]], and [[{{Tsundere}} Bipolar]].
* MarshmallowHell: [[spoiler:In the ending, Belleria is hanging out at Chou-Chou's cleavage, who's now grown HUGE.]]
* MontyHaul: If you download the {{DLC}}; it's a Compile Heart tradition after all.
* NamesTheSame: Do not confuse Keiji "Shin" Inafune to the KeijiInafune [[VideoGame/MegaMan we all know.]]
* NoseBleed: Ryuto makes one at the beginning of the game when he sees Chou-Chou and Altis naked in the bath. In fact, he gets these a lot.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Vorgis gets a second form when he eats Belleria's gemstone to fuse with her to become a God of Destruction.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Chou-Chou, the protagonist, is able to literally drop an EnergyBall ''[[UpToEleven the size of a freaking]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4EqZ6WXbAGw galaxy!]]''
* PragmaticAdaptation: Nippon Ichi has announced some changes will occur to the US version of the game, presumably this will involve removing or editing the extremely lewd bathing minigame. [[spoiler: And possibly the post-game post-fight CG of clones of your allies.]]
** Confirmed. NISA has stated the bathing mini-game will be removed in it's entirety.
*** For more info on this (and link about it), see {{Bowdlerize}} above.
* RoseHairedGirl: Chou-Chou Egocentric.
* SequelHook: [[spoiler: The game ends with Chou-Chou declares her new ambition to rule the entire universe. And Altis still wish to become a demon even after promoted into an even higher rank Angel.]]
* ShoutOut: Lots. For example, the trailer ends with a [[DragonBallZ Peon Ball]]. The size of a ''Galaxy''. [[UpToEleven That does 8.9 billion damage.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Even the website ''and'' the game can't seem to agree whether it's Shu-Shu or Chou-Chou. However, the official translation is the latter.
** It should be noted that it's pronounced "Shu Shu" either way.
* SpiritualSuccessor: It's basically a ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' game made by a different company. Of course ''NipponIchi'''s American branch is publishing it overseas...
* TacticalRockPaperScissors: How the ship-to-ship combat works in this game.
* ThemeMusicPowerup: When entering Fever Mode, you are treated to the game's themesong overriding the battle theme for as long as the Fever Mode lasts.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler: Vorgis to Belleria.]]
* UnknownRival: Well, more like "unacknowledged rival". Alys thinks she's Chou-Chou's rival, and while Chou-Chou does pity her, she knows that she is infinitely superior.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: You never do get to actually visit/conquer Soil World. While it is freed from Vorgis' stomach in both endings, Chou-Chou and company never actually go there in the story.]]
* WordSaladTitle: If you must know, the literal translation of this game is "Overwhelming Game Infinite Souls".
* YouAreNotAlone: [[spoiler: The group gives Chou-Chou this treatment when she recalls how lonely she was as a god.]]
