Trivia / Shin Megami Tensei I

  • Let's Play - here
    • And here, if you're looking for a video one.
  • Urban Legend of Zelda: Supposedly the SNES version had a rather... sadistic Easter Egg. The rumor goes: starting the game up enough times (random, and highly unlikely unless you're resetting the console a lot for some reason) will result in being greeted with a screen of text that repeatedly says "TURN IT OFF IMMEDIATELY" in Japanese, complete with a loud buzzing noise. In a game rife with Nightmare Fuel, this would have been some on a very meta level. Here's a video of it "occurring".
    • This rumor was so prolific (in part because nobody wanted to encounter it), it took Gideon Zhi, the person who localized the original SMT game, to debunk it. He stated that there was no code embedded in the game that would cause this event to occur.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The artbook had designs of demons that did not make the final cut.
    • Originally the game was only meant to start in Tokyo and then to take place on a global scale before ending in Israel.
