** When the accumulation of humanity's desire for death, [[TrueFinalBoss Erebus]], notices that Aigis is another Wild Card and tries to use her to break the seal on Nyx, she and the rest of S.E.E.S. proceed to kick its ass in a very satisfying final boss battle. They saved the world once, and they'll do it again!
-->'''Junpei:''' Hah... How do you like them apples? [[BadassBoast We already saved the world once... This was just our encore!]]


* The final boss of ''The Answer''. As it turns out, the Protagonist didn't sacrifice himself to seal Nyx, but to prevent humanity's desire for death from calling Nyx. This essentially references the Protagonist's role as a Messianic Archetype as he practically gives humanity hope and to make sure that they live their lives the fullest.

* Koromaru's introduction. He kills a Shadow on his own without an Evoker in the name of protecting his late master's shrine. While he is seriously wounded, [[TheCavalryArrivesLate SEES]] is able to save him and he joins the group.

In the end, fully healed, s/he reaches out and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu wipes the entire thing and him/herself out of the sky]] (by pointing at it with one finger no less). Cue the panic as they think s/he's dead, only for him/her to come back a few minutes later. Of course, this being a game by the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' team, [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu this is mercilessly subverted]], as Persona 3 FES explains. The [[TheHeroDies death of the MC]] is still awesome in its own way:they gave up their life (casting the Great Seal uses up all your HP) to seal away Death itself and save the entire world. And they managed to hang on for ''over a month'' before the 'dying' part of their sacrifice actually kicked in. Bad. Ass.
