Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE's demon alignment chart

Alignment is a generalization of the ideals of the characters in context, and refers to the factions that they represent in the universe of their series.

Most Megami Tensei games have some form of the staples Law, Neutral and Chaos to represent different routes the protagonist can take even if each faction is not explicitly stated as such. Additionally, in the classic styled entries, demons have alignments to determine a level of affinity with the protagonist depending on the protagonist's own alignment.

In general, the alignment of a demon is measured on a horizontal axis of Law-Neutral-Chaos (LNC). In addition to Alignment, Tendency is the other axis perpendicular to the Alignment axis. This axis measures the morality in the scale of Light-Neutral-Dark (LND), which further modifies the ideology represented by Alignment.

Generally, the series uses the color blue to represent Law, green or white for Neutral and red for Chaos.

In total, there are nine possible alignments a demon can have:

Alignment
Tendency Light-Law Light-Neutral Light-Chaos
Neutral-Law Neutral-Neutral Neutral-Chaos
Dark-Law Dark-Neutral Dark-Chaos

Appearances[]

Role[]

"Now Alignment, you've got two lines there. First you've got the Law/Neutral/Chaos line. This line demarcates differences in policy, kind of like what kind of principles you live your life by. Law folks, now they follow strict social rules and hierarchy. Chaos folks, they tend to let their feelings guide them. Neutral people are those that try to strike a balance between extremes. Next, you've got the Light/Neutral/Dark line. This line demarcates differences in being - a difference in atypes of energy. Light folks, they have a really high spiritual energy, and are usually closer to being gods. Dark folks, now they've got low spiritual energy, and usually closer to being demons, often destructive. Neutrals are right in the middle. A combination of these two lines sets your alignment. Humans are always Neutral on both, but that'll change based on the minions they've got tagging along."
Expanse resident, Shin Megami Tensei: if…

Shin Megami Tensei[]

Human characters also possess alignments. There are certain items that can only be equipped to a character of the correct alignment, and the Messian (Law) or Gaean (Chaos) Ashram will charge more money if the protagonist is of an opposing alignment. Demons will also refuse to join the protagonist if his alignment directly opposes theirs.

The alignment of the protagonist is determined by a number of factors. During the course of the game, he is asked several philosophical questions (e.g.: "Your mother has been possessed by a demon and pleads with you to end her suffering. Do you kill her?"), the answers to which affects his alignment. Summoning demons will alter the protagonist's alignment slightly towards the alignment of the demon summoned. Most importantly, the protagonist will be given tasks by both the Law and Chaos factions in the game. Completing one of these tasks will heavily alter the protagonist's alignment in favor of the respective faction, while completing both will keep him on the Neutral alignment. The alignment of the protagonist directly affects the ending of the game.

Law[]

This alignment is associated with God, order and peace. In the game, it is represented by the Messian religion and the colors blue and white. The Law alignment promotes order and safety, but taken to an extreme, it leads to dictatorship and elitism. The main goal of the Law factions in the game is to establish the Thousand Year Kingdom, a paradise on Earth ruled over by God. The truth is that only a select few who are judged worthy would be allowed to live in the Thousand Year Kingdom while everyone else would be killed. Those who do live in the Thousand Year Kingdom would be subjected to its strict, absolute laws.

Neutral[]

Also known as "Balance," this alignment accepts the need for laws to govern the world but not at the cost of personal freedom. It rejects the concept of relying on Lawful or Chaotic powers to focus instead on personal empowerment, refinement, individuality and the inherent strength of mankind. Although presumed to be the most idealistic alignment by many, it is also the hardest alignment to attain because of its isolationist nature, destroying everything in your way and even standing against former friends. The "canon" neutral endings of many of the games are also depicted as often leading directly into the problems that arise in the next games, the best example being Shin Megami Tensei II. As shown in Strange Journey, a world of balance is often seen by angels as one where humans become neglectful of the world around them, leading to a gradual period of decay and languishing for the world.

Chaos[]

This alignment is associated with Lucifer, freedom and war. In the game, it is represented by the Gaean religion and the colors red and black. This alignment promotes freedom of choice, thought and action above all else in stark contrast to the controlling nature of the Law alignment. However, this freedom can lead to a vast amount of suffering and anarchy, leading the world into a primal state of unsuppressed vice and survival of the fittest. The main goal of the Chaos factions is to crush the Messian forces opposing them and attain complete and total power over Tokyo.

Light[]

Light demons are deities that are usually worshiped in their religions. However, Light does not equal "good," just as Dark does not automatically mean "evil" in this series.

Neutral[]

Neutral demons are minor gods and supernatural creatures from myths or others that fall between the lines and are neither good or evil. The vast majority of demons in the series are Neutral.

Dark[]

Dark demons are generally evil gods or devils, reviled by whatever religion believes in them. However, not all dark demons are wicked or vile creatures, and some can be friendly in conversations or quests.

Shin Megami Tensei: if...[]

"Humans are always Neutral on both [axis], but that'll change based on the minions they've got tagging along. Their whole party's alignment will change based on that."
Expanse resident, Shin Megami Tensei: if…

Unlike the previous games, alignment plays only a small role in Shin Megami Tensei: if...; no equipment is alignment-restricted and there are no alignment-based endings, the only role alignment plays is in determining which demons can be used by the protagonist; lawful demons cannot be summoned or recruited by a Chaotic party, and chaotic demons cannot be summoned or recruited by a Lawful party. Human characters start Neutral-aligned, and every time a demon is summoned to the party, it will shift the party's alignment toward its own, with how much it shifts depending on the demon's race and the party's current alignment, which can be seen on the protagonist's status screen.

Shin Megami Tensei NINE[]

The "NINE" in the title refers to the nine different alignments in the game:

  • Light-Law
  • Neutral-Law
  • Dark-Law
  • Dark-Neutral
  • Neutral-Neutral
  • Light-Neutral
  • Light-Chaos
  • Neutral-Chaos
  • Dark-Chaos

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE[]

Alignments function similarly to Shin Megami Tensei. Law follows the beliefs of the Order of Messiah, while Chaos follows the beliefs of the Ring of Gaea.

The alignment of the player's Demon Buster primarily affects the amount of Magnetite required to summon the demons at their disposal. Demons will still join the player regardless of their alignment, but opposing alignments will cost the player a much greater amount of Magnetite to summon.

A player's alignment can restrict a player's ability to use certain equipment and will lock them out of certain quests. For acts and some dungeons, players of certain alignments will have to pay more for access, will receive debilitating status ailments or will fight different bosses entirely. Some enemy mobs, such as the Gaian Fanatics of Ueno's Kuchinawa Cave, have features that deal additional damage to those of other alignments.

While not depicted in game, the alignments image do depict the the Light/Dark axis on its vertical axis with races on the upper part being light and the demons of the lower part being dark.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey[]

Alignments in this game are separated into the standard Law, Chaos and Neutral routes.

Each Demon is separated using one of the nine Alignments. If the protagonist's alignment is opposite to the Demon he negotiates with, they will become much more difficult to form any compromise with him. He might still recruit them, but the odds are much lower. Dark alignment Demons cannot be recruited through Negotiation.

Co-Op attacks can only be executed by Demons of the same alignment as the attacker.

Certain story dialogues can affect the protagonist's alignment, although he will always be Light-aligned (can only be Light-Law, Light-Neutral or Light-Chaos).

The alignment representatives are respectively: Zelenin and Mastema / The Three Wise Men for Law, Commander Gore and Arthur for Neutral, and Jimenez and Mem Aleph for Chaos. With the exception of Gore and Arthur, the alignment representatives are thoroughly hostile and seek to annihilate humanity's free will through logical extremes of their ideologies made manifest. Would Zelenin and Mastema succeed in creating a world of Law, the hymn of Zelenin will create a regressive society where all humans unite in one out of blind faith for God, and if Jimenez and Mem Aleph were to create a world for the Old Gods, the world will regress into a bloodbath where humans fight endlessly to prove their strength. If the protagonist picks the Neutral Route, then there's still no guarantee that the Schwarzwelt wouldn't return.

The Red Sprite crew will sport blank, grey eyes and their dialogue will consist of praising God in the Law Route, while in the Chaos Route, they will sport yellow eyes and frenzied expressions, while glorifying bloodlust in their dialogue. Being locked in the Neutral Route does not alter the appearances of the Crewmen.

In the remake version, after clearing the Womb of Grief and meeting Alex in Sector Horologium, she will tell the protagonist about the consequences of the original reality they would create, instead offering them a chance to take one of the "New" Routes instead. If he accepts this offer, Alex will not fight them and vanish, locking the protagonist in the "New" Routes. Doing so will force the protagonist to fight Mem Aleph regardless of alignment and unlock the final dungeon; the Empyrean Ascent where The Three Wise Men as Shekinah had to be fought regardless of route as the true final boss. The New Law and New Chaos endings take humanity's free will into regard considerably, and the Neutral route strands the protagonist in the moon as a reliable solution against the Schwarzwelt.

Shin Megami Tensei IV[]

The alignment system was heavily tweaked; Flynn can now recruit Dark demons (with the exception of the Undead race, which must be recruited through Scout+), but Light demons still cannot be recruited directly and thus, must be either fused or picked in place of a demon beyond Flynn's level cap. Demons of an opposite alignment to Flynn are also recruitable. The representatives are respectively Merkabah for Law, Lucifer for Chaos and Masakado for Neutral.

The non-Neutral alignments are also significantly more hostile and supremacist than their former counterparts, actively attacking and persecuting anyone who might go against their ideology. Additionally, while Law and Chaos factions had once accepted Pagan entities within their ranks, in SMTIV and Apocalypse they only accept entities of Abrahamic or Jewish mysticism origin within their ranks, with the Law faction using only angels and Chaos only demons.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[]

The traditional alignments of Law and Chaos exist, but they serve merely as antagonists and false opposition, and following them leads to the game's two early endings. Instead, the primary alignment system is Neutral and measures whether the protagonist is Light-Neutral or Dark-Neutral.

Just like in SMTIV, Law and Chaos forces exclusively use entities from Abrahamic or Jewish mystic origins, while most of other entities are either unaligned or sided with the Divine Powers.

At the penultimate floor of the Cosmic Egg, Dagda will provide a question that would affect Nanashi's alignment, determining if he is Dark-Neutral or Light-Neutral. The Dark-Neutral outcome is for Nanashi to side with Dagda and forcing him to kill his allies in combat and Dagda offering Nanashi one of them as a permanent partner and a mindless extension of him after defeating the Vishnu-Flynn boss encounter. The Light-Neutral outcome is for Nanashi to reject Dagda, causing him to violently attack him until Danu recreates a new Dagda and gives Nanashi back his demons. If Nanashi's previous decisions conflict with the alignment chosen, there will be severe consequences. However, no matter the choice between Light and Dark Stephen will support them, but his actions in the process are either more ruthless and warnings or friendly advice.

The Divine Powers act as a third faction of radical Neutral entities with a clear moral void. Despite having similar intent as Dagda and using thoroughly unscrupulous like he would, Nanashi is not given an option to side with them at all.

Light-Neutral ("Peace" / "Bonds")[]

The route advocated by Danu and her vessel Nozomi that values bonds above all else. Light choices are nice and friendly answers that earn points with friends. Being Dark aligned and picking this route results in the deleting of demons in the battle with Dagda.

Dark-Neutral ("Anarchy" / "Massacres")[]

The route advocated by Dagda that values self-freedom, individuality and the will to do what's necessary no matter what above all else. Dark choices are unfriendly, brutally honest and antisocial answers. Being Light aligned but picking this route results in Navarre destroying all consumable items.

Shin Megami Tensei V[]

Law and Chaos play a role in the war between Bethel, an organization containing gods, humans and angels, and Lucifer's demons, with the former representing Law and the latter Chaos. The forces of Chaos claim to have killed the God of Law, whereas the angels of Bethel believe God still exists and fight to maintain the status quo in the world. The goals of the demons of Chaos in the story are varied, but in general they seek to destroy the world as it currently exists, whereas the angels of Law seek to protect God's order but are ruthless in doing whatever is necessary to defeat Chaos. Furthermore, the angels believe God is not dead and remain loyal to what they perceive to be his will, something that causes tension with the other members of Bethel. Bethel is even looked down on by the Kunitsukami, saying that its goals have spiraled away from the noble cause it at first promised to uphold. However, there are some, such as the members of the Fairy Village, that are Neutral and wish to stay out of the conflict, but they are willing to tend to the injuries of humans rescued by Bethel's forces.

However, the theme of Law versus Chaos is merely a narrative device for the endings, each representing one of the forms of governance of the world the protagonist may choose in the endings:

  • Yuzuru Atsuta and Hayao Koshimizu partake in Bethel's mission to slay the forces of Chaos, but afterwards they choose to reject God's order to remake the world into one of "myriad gods" using the Throne of Creation, which they believe will result in a better world and allow them to better protect Tokyo.
  • Ichiro Dazai and Abdiel believe in God's order but go as far as to defy his will by seeking to claim the Throne of Creation to enforce it. Abdiel, as an archangel, is willing to taint herself to maintain the old order, first becoming a fallen angel and then a Nahobino herself: a being that has been forbidden by her lord.
  • Shohei Yakumo and Nuwa dislike both angels and demons for different reasons, finding the former to be zealous and the latter opportunistic, but they even wish to destroy the Throne of Creaton itself to give worthy humans the opportunity to decide their own fate despite the anarchy such an action would cause.

The protagonist's responses to specific dialogue options may align the protagonist towards any path. Despite this, little to no alterations to the world or gameplay occur regardless of alignment until the route choice; if the protagonist chooses a route contradictary to prior alignment, certain NPCs will provide alternative dialogue, and a sidequest with a Nebiros will charge an additional 600,000 Macca to complete. There is also a secret ending in which the protagonist chooses not to destroy the Throne of Creation but uses its power to erase gods, angels, and demons from existence, recreating the world into one for humans alone.

Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis[]

The party's alignment starts out as Neutral-Netural, but will change to Law/Chaos-Neutral depending on their answers when confronting Masakiyo Ogiwara and having their alignment changed. If Naoki Takeuchi answers his questions in a Lawful or Chaotic manner, Ogiwara will be fought and killed. Camael will ask a series of questions later in Megalopolis, which will determine if they follow the Light or Dark paths of Law/Chaos. Karen Rose will join on Law/Chaos, while Ogiwara will join on the Neutral route.

The five routes are:

  • Light-Law
  • Dark-Law
  • Neutral-Neutral
  • Light-Chaos
  • Dark-Chaos

Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon[]

The game's variation of Law and Chaos is lowkey compared to the one found in the main Shin Megami Tensei games, as Raidou's actions reflect him as a person rather than trying to force his will upon mankind by picking a side.

Law is represented by keeping the status quo and preventing change, and that one should simply accept their lot in life, even if the current order is corrupt and stagnant. Chaos is represented as the path seeking change and the betterment of now at the cost of hurting others, selfish actions and determination to do what's right even if goes against the rules. Neutral is simply the acceptance of both paths of life and not condemning others for their choice.

Devil Survivor[]

Each of the five routes in the game represent one of the alignments. Overclocked added 8th Days to Kingdom of Saints, King of Demons and Desperate Escape.

  • Kingdom of Saints: A Law route represented by Amane Kuzuryu.
  • Silent Revolution: A Neutral route represented by Atsuro Kihara.
  • King of Demons: A Chaos route represented by Naoya and Kaido.
    • Warlord/Despot 8th Day: Two alternate Chaos paths determined by whether the protagonist decides to kill humans or not.
  • Song of Hope: A Neutral route represented by Gin.
  • Desperate Escape: A Neutral route by represented by Yuzu.

Variations[]

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne[]

Reasons[]

The Reason is a school of thought or philosophy intended to become the core belief in a new world. Every time the Conception comes to pass, a Reason is selected for Kagutsuchi to release its powers and revive the world according to one of these visions. A god embodying the Reason must be brought forth into the Vortex World by the power of Magatsuhi and a champion of the same power pitted against Kagutsuchi, an extension of the Great Will, to be tested and acknowledged as the Master of Reason, worthy of raising the new world.

While they are not alignments per the description, they are the embodiments of the actions, manifestations and results that all alignments can take, through either ways that are both planned and intended or through corruption by extremity, hypocrisy and arrogance. It can influence from any sort of degree, ranging from a societal level to even a universal law, as well as from a subtle and changeable state to a passive occurrence. There are examples throughout the Shin Megami Tensei series, being a "Lawful Yosuga," shown in Shin Megami Tensei II, to the "Chaotic Shijima," from the Ozawa-ruled Shinjuku in Shin Megami Tensei, and even to the rejection of both.

Shijima[]

Shijima is a Reason of serenity, a world in which every being is one with each other and God. It is a universe devoid of free will, with a single unified consciousness governing its acts along the guidelines set by the universe itself, with no passion or conflict. Individuality is obliterated in favor of a collective inner peace equalizing all beings with God himself. It is a lawful, nihilistic Reason with strong similarities to the concept of Nirvana.

Musubi[]

Musubi is a Reason of selfhood, a myriad of worlds, each containing a single person. Each person is completely separated from all others and thus, unable to hinder or help any other worlds beyond their own. Each human is a diminutive god capable of altering their world as they wish. This is a neutral, solitary Reason.

Yosuga[]

Yosuga is a violent, classist Reason which postulates the needlessness of certain things in the world, namely, the weakest. This Reason emphasizes class position and survival, becoming a testing ground for a purely Social Darwinist state; a constant fight for evolution and power, with fear and paranoia running rampant as the world continually attempts to test and weed out the "impurities" in its society.

Rejection[]

It is possible to reject all Reasons, leading to three possible outcomes in the game. Aradia is the key catalyst for two of them; she will ask whether the Demi-fiend fears rejection and ridicule for his choice or the punishment the choice of freedom will cost him. If he fears, the world will remain as it is until the next Conception, as the Demi-fiend will have proved himself as a weak-spirited person unable to correlate to either Reason but yet incapable of imposing his own will to create his own world. Should he acknowledge he no longer fears either punishment or ridicule, he will instead recreate the old world as it was, as a person who has mastered his own destiny and has decided to return to a world of endless opportunities to make his mark known.

A third, possible alternative exists: to reach the Fifth Kalpa of the Labyrinth of Amala and meet with the old man; to decide to willingly destroy the cycle of death and rebirth, ending the possibility of the emergence of a new world forever and instead commencing the countdown for the final battle of all time, the end of the universe.

Light[]

It's rare to encounter Light demons in battle and they can only be found in a few optional dungeons. Being chief gods, they are unwilling to submit to the Demi-fiend's commands, and will not join his team or even negotiate with him. However, they can be fused and tend to be more powerful than their Dark counterparts.

Neutral[]

Neutral demons can be recruited normally through negotiations and are of use, instead of just being ingredients for better demons.

Dark[]

They appear quite frequently, though not as often as Neutral demons. Dark demons are very difficult to recruit, but some can be recruited under special circumstances.

Devil Survivor 2[]

Instead of having the typical alignments, the game instead has routes based on the quality of the star signs.

  • Fixed: Represents stability, persistence and determination. Daichi Shijima embodies this quality and seeks to return the world back to the way it was for peaceful coexistence, or to take down the administrator Polaris.
  • Mutable: Represents adaptability and change. Yamato Hotsuin embodies this mode with his Meritocracy, which will create a structured hierarchy where one's place in society is based on one's own skill and ability.
  • Cardinal: Represents taking action and creation. Ronaldo Kuriki embodies this quality with his goal of Egalitarianism.
  • Rebirth: The fourth path that does not have a quality to it and is an outsider due to being based on the star sign Ophiuchus. Anguished One and his goal of overthrowing the Administrator and creating a new world embodies this path.

Record Breaker brings with it four new endings in the Triangulum story.

  • Miyako Hotsuin: The first ending available. Choosing her ending leads to the game over screen.
  • Endless War: Chosen by agreeing with Ronaldo's suggestion of constantly fighting the rest of the Administrators and their Swords, while using the Astrolabe to undo the damage by the previous fight and advance humanity at the same time.
  • Guardian: Chosen by agreeing with the Anguished One on electing a new Administrator. The protagonist sacrifices his future life with his companions to become the benevolent Administrator of the next world, with the Anguished One as his Sword.
  • Record Breaker: Available only if the player has discussed with Yamato on how the Astrolabe can be used. The party divides their Administrative Authority across all of humanity's data, and uses it to recreate a world completely free of the Administrators' influence.

Trivia[]

  • The concept of alignment is based on the Dungeons & Dragons alignments. In the Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) fantasy role-playing game, Alignment is a categorization of the ethical (Law/Chaos axis) and moral (Good/Evil axis) perspective of people, creatures and societies. The earliest edition of D&D allowed players to choose among three alignments when creating a character: Lawful, implying honor and respect for society's rules; Chaotic, implying the opposite; and Neutral, meaning neither. Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) introduced a second axis of Good, Neutral and Evil, offering a combination of nine alignments. The D&D Basic Set retained the system of three alignments, keeping it through the D&D Rules Cyclopedia.
