1[[AC: General Information]]* There are only three ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games that allow the player to begin and end the game as a girl. They are ''VideoGame/Persona2: Eternal Punishment'', ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIf'', and the PSP remake of ''VideoGame/Persona3''. Note that only in the first example is being female mandatory. ** There is actually a fourth game where this is possible, the [[NoExportForYou entirely unknown]] ''Shin Megami Tensei NINE'', also having a pseudo-MMORPG style that would be fully realized in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiImagine'' five years later.* Curious about why Cerberus's design has only one head? This design choice is a tradition that remained from the [[Literature/DigitalDevilStory original novel]]'s depiction.* BigNameFan: The artwork of Kazuma Kaneko has earned quite a few fans all over, most notably Creator/HirohikoAraki, the creator of the ''Franchise/JojosBizarreAdventure'' series. This also holds true in reverse with Kaneko himself being a fan of Araki.* FanNickname: [[VideoGame/StarFox Andross]] for Omoikane. The protagonists of ''Devil Summoner: VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'', ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona}},'' ''VideoGame/Persona3'', and ''VideoGame/Persona4'' are nameless in the game, but fans often use the names given to the characters in various manga and drama [=CDs=] based off the games.** The protagonist of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIf'' was also named like this at first, until [[AscendedFanon she was given a name]] (and a definite gender) in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}''.* FranchiseKiller: More like Subseries Killer, but ''Ronde'' for the Sega Saturn ended up completely killing off the ''Majin Tensei'' subseries.* NoExportForYou: A good fraction of the games, especially ones before UsefulNotes/TheFifthGenerationOfConsoleVideoGames. This has changed in TheNewTens for North Americans--''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' was released in North America only two weeks after its Japanese release, and ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' got its NA release two months after Japan's, when many prior localizations would take at least eight months. However, Europe still sadly gets the short end of the stick.* SequelFirst: ''Jack Bros.'', an obscure Virtual Boy Gauntlet clone spinoff, was the first game in the series to come to the US with many of the games.* TheWikiRule: [[ Yep]].[[AC: VideoGame/Persona3]]* One of the items obtainable from vending machines is called "Cielo Mist", a drink made in Jamaica. This is a reference to the character Cielo from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', who spoke with a Jamaican accent.* Also, the Kirijo company was part of the Nanjo group from the first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' game, as stated by Mitsuru's father.[[AC: VideoGame/Persona4]]* If one is able to [[spoiler:avoid killing Namatame]], they are able to access a dungeon that must be cleared by December 24th, 2011. This is almost one year to the before the Mayan calendar ends.
